A Few Words With Busy P

Busy P Ottawa

I recently had the chance to interview Pedro Winter (aka Busy P), Pierre-Andre Senizergues (founder of etnies) and So Me (Ed Banger art director) for Highsnobiety. During our conference call Busy P revealed his previously undocumented (as far as I can find) Ottawa connection.

Here’s the extended edit. RC exclusive!

Pedro: Of course, we are going to party. I don’t know where you guys are living…

Nick: I can easily be in New York.

Lady: Pete lives in Ottawa.

Pedro: Oh, you are in Ottawa? I spend most of my younger holidays in Ottawa.

Pete: Really?

Pedro: My father used to live in Gatineau.

Pete: Cool, I live right across the river.

Pedro: OK. You know when I was younger, I used to go to this place to buy t-shirts called Local Motion… no, no… Rock Junction. My older brother used to bring me there.

Pete: That’s right across from a skateboard shop called Top of the World. [topoftheworld.com]

Pedro: Oh yes, I know this.

Geeks Love Tweaks 2010

Geeks Love Tweaks

This weekend marked the 5th (or 6th.. no one could quite figure it out) annual Geeks Love Tweaks contest in Canada’s National Capital Region. Hosted by Ottawa’s #1 skate/snow shop Top of the World, Geeks Love Tweaks is basically a yearly “dress like it’s the 80s and have a blast, cause shred season is over” jam sesh. NERF guns, vintage shred sticks and plenty of hand plants. Not to mention a shit ton of beer. As D. Ro of Tha Coop puts it, “we were having way too much fun to seriously film anything”.


Raised by Wolves own Cali Green took home the bronze in his custom RbW x Gucci jump off. There may have been some heckling for rocking a tall tee at an 80s-themed event, but you can’t deny “Gucci was big in the 80s.”
