Foreign Perverts vs The Shlontaxsynstig

This is the sickest thing the RWC crew have seen all year...

Kingdom of the unreal but also a higher state of being, ultimately free of the limitations of the material world through the agency of science, technology, and imagination.

You saw it here first.

Aaron Rose, a film director, art show curator and writer from the Beautiful Losers art movement, describes the complicated process involved in boiling a pot of water. The RWC crew are not sure what this is all about, but it has Aaron Rose in it so it must be cool. Only 22 views at the time of posting, the RWC crew really have their finger on the pulse.

Harold Hunter on Ed Templeton

The RWC crew just found this great video of Harold Hunter and Ed Templeton at Ed's art show 'The Golden Age of Neglect' at the Alleged Galley from a fair few years ago. Check it out...

Some old footage of a baby faced Bam in there too.

For those that don't know Peter Sutherland who made this short film is a New York City based artist. His work employs some of the techniques of traditional documentary photography to capture the hidden beauty of ordinary objects and everyday situations. He is also responsible for the book 'Autograf' which is well worth checking out.

Harold Hunter (RIP) was an NYC professional skater and actor. He was best known on screen for his part in Larry Clark's controversial 1995 film Kids playing the role of Harold.


Kids

Back in February 2006, Rosto from RWC was in New York and had arranged to meet up with ESPO in the Lower East Side just to hang out at his studio and talk about art. It was then that Rosto heard about Harold Hunter's death. On February 17, 2006, Harold Hunter was found dead from a heart attack in his Lower East Side apartment.

A couple of days later in NYC Harolds friends held a street memorial parade. He is missed and well remembered in NYC...

The Gonz is a Legend

Mark Gonzales is a professional skater and artist. He is known in the skating world as the pioneer of modern street skating.


Gonz came on the skateboarding scene at age 15 with a modern approach to street skating and made the cover of Thrasher magazine's November 1984 issue.

In 1986, Gonz busted a groundbreaking ollie at the Embarcadero in SF. So historic was this ollie , the spot became forever known as the 'Gonz Gap'. Also in 1986 Gonz and Natas Kaupas were the first skaters to skate handrails. In 1987 he was one of the first skaters to skate switch.


Gonz went on to further influence skateboarding as it modernized with the 1991 video Video Days by Blind Skateboards(a company he created around 1989). The name Blind was an intentional slight to his old sponsor, Vision. And in 1993, Gonzales was the first skater to kickflip his namesake, the Gonz Gap at Embarcadero. After leaving Blind Skateboards, Mark went on to start two new companies: ATM Click and 60/40 Skateboards (which is now out of business). Mark skated for Real Skateboards before launching Krooked Skateboards.


In 1998 Gonz did a performance in a German Museum im Mönchengladbach on Dec.

Gonz has also established a parallel career as an artist, having shown at the Alleged Gallery in New York and various galleries worldwide.


Gonz has appeared in a few movies, including RWC's head honcho Rost's favourite film Harmony Korine's 'Gummo', where he wrestles a chair. He was also the male lead in a 1997 Spike Jonze short film, How They Get There.


He is also a poet and author and has published several books including Social Problems, High Tech Poetry, Broken Dreams, and Broken Poems. In 2008, Drag City released a book called The Collected Fanzines that consists of reproductions of old zines that he collaborated with Harmony Korine in making.
