I’m lucky enough to have a beautiful Audrey Kendahl Kuhn in my house (1/150 of the Painted Desert) but can’t seem to find any more of her work from this area for sale on the internet. If you have leads, let me know. Or if you have one in your house, take a picture!

Dylan’s Gospel

Dylan

The always amazing Light In The Attic Records are rereleasing the Lou Adler produced Dylan’s Gospel, a 1969 record by The Brothers and Sisters, a choir of LA session singers.  That’s the short of it, but there’s a lot going on in this record. Read more about here and watch the Making Of Dylan’s Gospel here. And when you’re doing doing that, buy everything that LITA has ever put out. It’d be silly not to.

California

Mikael Kennedy California

People, have you bought Mikael Kennedy’s new book, California? If you haven’t, do it now. Because if there’s anyone to listen to in this situation, it’s yours truly. I was sitting right next to this amazing feller the entire time he was shooting. And yes, it was as magical in real life as it looks printed on paper.

GO.

Chipper Bro

Chipper Bro Chipper Bro II

If you’ve ever had the honor of walking into the Patagonia offices in Ventura, CA and being greeted by the guy pictured above – Chipper – then you should consider yourself a lucky son of a bitch. And chances are good that you’ll never forget The Nicest And Most Enthusiastic Man In The World. Read a great interview with Chip “Chipper Bro” Bell, the 11 time (!) World Frisbee Freestyle Champion at Patagonia’s great blog/site, The Cleanest Line. When you’re done there, rush over and WATCH THIS.

Craig – How did you come to work at Patagonia?

Chip – I had just finished a ten-year tour with the Pro Frisbee® Freestyle circuit and was looking for a job. I heard that Patagonia was hiring, so I applied and they hired me. I was super stoked to find out that the company provided benefits because I was newly married with a baby on the way.

Craig – You are an 11-time World Frisbee Freestyle Champion. How did you get involved in the sport?

Chip – Frisbee Freestyle was considered a cool, alternative sport in the late ‘70s. I started playing with friends in Santa Barbara, which was the mecca for Freestyle enthusiasts. Eventually my passion became a livelihood and I traveled all over the world with my team. We were world champions for over ten years. This is my thirty-third year as a pro.

Katie Lee DamNation

I had the extreme pleasure of watching DamNation last night at the Patagonia offices in Ventura, CA. (The film was introduced by Yvon, an added bonus.) It officially premieres at SxSW next week, so if you’re down in Austin, rush on over to see it.

Above is a photo of Katie Lee, one of the best parts about the film.
