Its funny how things change. As I was looking through old pictures today I found this one, an unused documentation of a piece I did years ago. Its is so strange to think how much I have changed and how much is different in my life since I made this piece. It took all this time for me to fully understand what I meant that day. Weird. Today is what matters. View high resolution

The Jackalope

…this is what happened after we shot guns and ate sushi 

3.16.2014 Clean up day

Finally had a chance to sleep in a few extra hours.
Woke up and went to an amazingly good BBQ spot where I had a great breakfast taco and Amazing creamed corn, along with a bunch of other sides.
Then we went to the Vans Village to make sure our crate was all good to ship and watched it get loaded onto the truck.

The girls stayed back home and cleaned the houses 
We all debriefed from the week 
then Carlos, Felix, and I decided to go shoot guns… I mean..why not?
It was my first time shooting ever.
We stated with a revolver then bumped up to an AR-15
it was a blast!
Never thought it would be as much fun as it was
Def going to miss hanging with these dudes

3.15.2014 The Last Day of SXSW

was crazy
as were all the other days
I did’t take as many photos as I normally do. 
But I got to see Bad Rabbits (from outside) 
And basically had a great last day
SXSW is def something I want/need to experience again
Whether I am lucky enough to be there with truth next year, or if I just go on my own to check out the music
It was all a blast!

When in Texas… #guns #ar15 #semiauto #reds #sxsw #austin #texas (at Red’s Indoor Range South)

The last day of SXSW is over! #sxsw @sxsw #truthorange @vans #sxswvans #sxsw14 #sxsw2014 #timelapse had such a blast! (at Vans Village @ SXSW)

SXSW 2.14.2014

Basically… it was crazy
The crowd has shifted a bit. It’s Friday and everyone on the streets is whitegirlwasted
But it was also still a blast.
Hustled a ton of gear
and we gave away probably 600 popsicles in the zone
Then we got to go out
and had shots of Moonshine
and danced like there was no tomorrow in one of the smallest/emptiest bars
fun fun fun

SXSW 3.13.2014

Today was obviously weird. 
But still had a good day.
We were incredibly busy, which was good. It was good to be back to normal life after last night. 
Breakfast tacos and all that #Torchys
Got to see some cool sky writing, made a dope time-lapse, caught part of Matisyahu’s set, and
Got a band new pair of shoes
All the profits of the Vans pop up shop were being donated to the families and victims of last nights accident. 
The next few days are about to be crazyer and busier than the last few. So rest is needed, for both my mind and body. 

Also I rapped on a stage today over my own beats. at SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST ……cray

SXSW 3.12.2014

So here are the photos from yesterday that I didn’t post last night
The day was actually great up until the tragedy that night
My mind is kind of a blur because these 12+ hour days are all mixing together
Got a phone call from my manager around 5 to meet him at House of Vans and he got me in to see Pusha T 
Which was awesome. Was right next to Tyler The Creator going ham at the end. Was super stoked. 
The fun I was having obviously got overshadowed by what happened that night. 
I know it is hard to say, but I still have to work, and I am still going to enjoy myself as much as I can while down here.
My thoughts and positive energy goes out to all the victims and their family. 

SXSW Car Crashes Into Crowd

Honestly I have no idea how to feel right now. I was less than 10 feet away from a horrible accident. 
I watched as 2 bodies flew into the air like rag-dolls when a car came crashing through a crowd on Red River Street.
The news has all the info of what went down, but all I can say is it was one of the scariest experiences of my life. My heart and thoughts go out to everyone who was affected by this. 
To the family’s of the 2 people who died, words cannot express how sorry I am. 
To everyone else I hope you safe heeling
I know no one will see or read this, it is way more of a way for me to release some of what is running through my brain.
The people I was with Carlos and Chelsee both ran to help while I stepped back. The only thought in my head was “I can’t watch someone die”
I am so thankful that they were with me and that they are also ok
The images in my head are impossible to get into words. This whole thing is just fucked up and sad and scary.
