Doug Williams and Campus Cruisers

Sixseed shot and edited this video and it is a dirty, gritty inline masterpiece.

He's also been hard at work recycling used skateboards into super slick Campus Cruisers. He threw this instructable up for a Green Living and Technology Challenge, watch the video and cast your vote!

Bill Withers - Moanin' and Groanin'

I just thought I'd share this great bluesy track I found on Bill Withers' 12" Just as I Am. Also has classic tunes Ain't No Sunshine and Grandma's Hands - the song Dre sampled for No Diggity. Great album, Al Jackson in the pocket on drums.

Scene Unheard

Well it finally happened. After years of floating around the top ten Ohio University has finally settled in at number one party school in Princeton Review's annual survey. This seems like an apt time to remind everyone that there's more to Athens then couch fires and beer bongs.
Scene unheard is a short documentary about noise and basement house shows I shot during my last year at Ohio University. It showcases a few of the unique house-turned-venues around town alongside perspectives of owners, concerned neighbors and police officials.
Music by the excellent Francis Bacon Band (Columbus), Duke Junior and The Smokey Boots, and Whale Zombie... thanks to Chris Lute and Max from Brown Town for chatting with me.
