SUPER SWEDE!!!

Is it just me or does Any one else have an addiction to Salted licorice and Snus? Over the years i have made it a mission to find Salted licorice and especially Snus while traveling! (nothing like having some snus to help ease the pain of a 12 hour plane ride) During that time i have also realized that the Valhalla of both of these gifts of the gods is in SWEDEN! I have yet to make a pilgrimage to this Nordic Land but the fact they have Snus, Salted Licorice and one of the best Hockey communities next to Canada I know I will be in Love when i do get there! And I also have some Incredible friends from over there. One in Particular is none other that The Founder of WESC Greger Hagelin. I dont remember exactly when we met but i know that we had an instant bond. Whether it was our incredible good looks or our mr. Universe Physique’s we just became instant buds. I knew he was an OG Swedish Skate Legend but I recently came across a really cool mini Doc about the History of the Skate Scene in Sweden and as it turns out Greger was probably one of the most influential Skateboards that Sweden has ever had and def. never one to shy away from rocking a lady’s swimsuit!!!

Like the Great Nickelback song quotes “ITS BEEN AWHILE” lol Time to get my blog back on!!! Well what a great way to jump back into the Bloggasphere then to post New Music by a Friend and incredibly talented singer/songwriter/producer Johnny Rain. This kid is a beast. I cant wait for you all to hear some of the music we have been working on together! But that will have to wait…..
Johnny Rain released his debut to the world last week via his website and now he comes to you with the visual featuring model Xena Kai and directed by Tishaun Dawson. The Oceanside, California native ,by way of the Bronx, is spearheading the 6JR movement and recently inked a deal with Tricky Stewart. Look out for Johnny’s full length release later this year and plenty of production with your favorite artists along the way. Click on the Photo’s for LINKS.

KEEPING THE ESPYS LITE!!!

Sometimes things just happen and the fact I got to spend three days gifting Native shoes to some of the Top Athletes in the world is Insane!!! If you’ve read some of my blog posts on Radcollector.com you might have noticed i’m a Mega Jock in a crippled skater/snowboarders body. I played Team sports all the way up to my senior year in highschool so when an opportunity arose to get into the ESPY gifting suite with Native I jumped at the chance! Walking into the W hotel and the first person I see is Vikings RB Adrian Peterson I knew I was heading into Sports Fan Nirvana! I want to thank Nino from FLY SOCIETY for introducing me to Robert Parr who hooked the whole deal up!! I couldn’t believe how nice all these Superstars where? I guess there like everyone else but with MILLIONS in the bank! The Highlight was def. meeting Boston Bruins Goalie TIM THOMAS who I told to leave when he entered the room! (I am a die hard Canucks fan!) I was just kidding…..kinda. I wanted to not like him for single handily crushing my dreams in the Stanly Cup Finals but The guy was one of the nicest people I have ever met! He even let me get him in a choke hold for a pic then I let him return the favor by punching me in the face with an upper cut just like he did to all of Canucks Nation! The next Highlight was meeting Collegiate Wrestling champ Anthony Robles who was born with one leg! I never met a more inspirational person in my life. He is a BEAST!!! I also admitted my man crush on Tim Tebow to his O-line who got a good laugh out of it! My new best Bud Marshawn Lynch and I Got BUCK! JESUS was in the Building! Ray Allen even tho you play for the Celtics I have mad love for your Sonic roots! Actor from the Blind Side Quinton Aaron sorry Native doesn’t make a 22 dbl wide shoe for you but thanks for taking the pic anyways! Jason Kidd you are the MAN!!!! all the Mav’s that came thru you guys were all champs just like all the Green Bay packers! I better stop cause i could go on for days! Thank You ESPN and the ESPY’s for such a rad event!!! Next stop……..SUPER BOWL???

DAMN YOU TIM THOMAS!!!

STILL BREATHING…

11 December 2010, 01.04 | Posted in ADDICTIONS, BLOGGERS | No comments »

Man i feel bad that I haven’t been keeping up with this blog but im still alive and breathing. Its been an insane past month with travel and work but I haven’t forgotten about RADCOLLECTOR!!! Now what i want to know is if my Memory has been recharged? Another reason beyond the fact im a busy beaver is that i had no memory to load pics or videos and although i was told to erase earlier posts I like to keep that as a library of stuff iv’e done. I’ve been at over capacity for several months and although i can load a blog i know dick all about memory etc. so Here we go I will try another attempt at loading some pics. If there is no picture that means im still out of memory….ThePolice-Synchronicity-Back
well GOLY it worked!!! Now lets see if i can load a video???

UNCHARTED WATERS…

you always hear that saying “stop and the smell the roses” or “take it all in”, “isn’t this great?”. Sometimes its not ok to smell the flowers or have the ability to take it all in. Saying “This is good” is more like “This is ok”. Same days same songs same routine. People come and go but mostly they just came and went. Comfort is a sin and sometimes never letting go is holding on for life.The Best times of my life cant be the times i’ve had or those glory years? NO, this needs to be my moment in time. I know more now than I ever have and I keep wishing my mind would say enough is enough and simply START TO FLY. floating like energy is an addiction, you become complacent with the average and settle for whats best instead of what its worth. I feel me, my, mine has a lot to offer and I didn’t see the path I was on making my life any greater. Change is scary and growth is evolution. The funny thing is, it wasn’t a hard decision. Friends are for life and corporations are CORPORATE. I still have a lot of Family i’m leaving behind and i hope they are rooting for me like Im rooting for them. Im getting closer to nature and closer to home. The People who really know me are now the people i’m rolling with for the FUTURE. It’s never fun to say goodbye but it feels so great to Stoke new fires.I am at one with myself and in love with my NATIVES…

TECHTONIC…

Well it has been a minute since I posted anything on here? maybe it was a writers block? or maybe because I had used up all the memory on my word press account? Im not sure what it is but its kinda nice to do a little writing. A bunch of stuff has been going on but most importantly its the weather! Crazy weather is happening all over socal and compound that with all this talk about the Big One coming its a little unsettling to say the least. We have actually done a earthquake test with the kids so they know to run to the doorway in the living room? There is also a possibility of moving the Family back to Vancouver? I really dont like the wet damp weather but talk of earthquakes and record setting 113 degree heat has def. made that idea sound very attractive. I just wanted to put something up here so everyone knows im still breathing…..for now? Fingers crossed the BIG ONE doesn’t come and to all my fellow RAD COLLECTORS I’M Back…………for now. BUT WHAT DOES THAT MEAN???

The EH LIFE!!!

01 September 2010, 23.35 | Posted in ALL STARS, BROTHERS, CANADA, FRESH, LEGEND, SK8, Uncategorized, VANCOUVER, shoes | No comments »

So I recently went home to vancouver for a mini visit to see the moms and bro and some close friends.Van is cracking and a bunch of my friends are right at the heart of whats hip and fresh up there.One is none other than the President of ALIFE footwear and former GIRL pro Tony Ferguson.I’ve Known Tony for prob 20 years but I wouldn’t say we were super close but we have always had a certain report with each other and have remained buds during that whole time. I’m guaranteed a good belly laugh when we catch up tho and this time was no different! I knew he was involved somehow with the Alife store in Vancouver but I had no idea he was running ALIFE shoe’s! Stoked he has paved his own way and is killing it with his new path in life….EH!!!
