JOE HAMMEKE TRIBUTE


This week were doing a tribute to my good friend Joe Hammeke. Joe’s passing hit me like a ton of bricks and I’ve been having a hard time with this for sure. This little thing I put together just scratches the surface on what an amazing human he was and I know he touched so many people out there as was proven with the amazing Go Fund response. Thanks to all of you that pitched in and if you’re wanting to contribute,
here’s a link: https://www.gofundme.com/f/joe-hammek…

Joe had over 20 years shooting photos and touring with all your favorite skaters while he worked for Thrasher Magazine. Thoughts and prayers go out to Jessica, Ansel, and Taliesin. This episode has a Hammeke skate video that Pstone and Trujillo put together from their trip to Israel followed by what was going to be an interview for the podcast but Joe’s reception kept cutting out so you just get to see the struggle we had and share a few laughs a long the way and then ending with a tribute I threw together with some of the video clips and photos I could find at my home computer… It barely scratches the surface of what an amazing human Joe was but hopefully it will bring you some joy and happiness. REST IN PEACE JOE MISS YOU MEGA

Talkin’ Schmit: Mat O’Brien

Everything from Matt Pailes to Basquiat is stuffed into this episode which I would categorize more of two old bro’s catching up. I had such a good time talkin’ with Mat about things like living with Drehobl and Upson, being there for Duffy’s Plan B hammers, Bruna Da Silva and the Playground, the Slap ‘Angel’ graphic, the huge Matt Field influence, his skate company ‘The Otherness’, Robert Rauschenberg, living in Portland and much much more. Big love to Mat, he doesn’t do these type of things often and it was truly an honor for me to have his time and mind for over two hours. Next on my list, Barker Barrett…
