Refueled magazine has come a long way in two short years. It’s slowly evolving into what I had envisioned - a lifestyle magazine for music, style & design lovers, with an edge. If you have the time, go back and revisit issue one, issue two & issue three and see the evolution to the current Fall/Winter .09 issue. And again, thanks very much to the readers. The response has been overwhelming. You’re why we do it. Peace.

"My dad says so few kids was born after the accident, that God decided to make ‘em special. So we got fur, or tails, or antlers. He says I’m the last one left. Outside of the trees is fire and hell, so we’s gotta stay here, where it’s safe. Says the trees stop the fire from burning us forever. An’ if we wait here and pray hard, one day we’ll get to go to heaven and be with mom...that’s what my dad says."
Strange sweet shit from Jeff Lemire.

New pal, film/tv/video producer Steve Reiss, has done some mighty amazing work. He has produced/co-produced projects for everyone from U2, REM, David Bowie, Madonna, Lenny Kravitz to Michael Jackson - and the list goes on and on. Steve originally emailed me to say he really dug Refueled magazine and what I was doing with it. That in itself was a cool compliment. We found out we had a lot in common. He then was instrumental in hooking me up with REM's manager Bertis Downs, in my efforts to secure a interview with Michael Stipe for Refueled. Steve and I are now in the concept stage of a collabration. Will it be in print, on film? Stay tuned for the outcome.

My buddy Dave sent this over to me today, and I thought it was completely insane! Papercraft self-portrait by Eric Testroete.
"I made this as my costume for Halloween 2009. It was kind of inspired by big-head mode seen in videogames. I really wanted to get the faceted geosphere look with wireframe."

2009 has been a very productive year for me, and 2010 is already shaping up to be as busy, if not more. Along with the release of my skate board line Refueled Sidewalk Surfboards in the Spring, I'll be releasing the first in a series of Refueled Books. The first titled "Collaboration" - a collaborative photo/graphic venture between photographer Cari Wayman and myself. Cari and I have long talked about doing a project together and it looks like the right time has come. Stay tuned.

The beautiful and talented Courtney Barton over at Inside the Loop is just one of the cool people who I've been receiving props from over the last couple of days since the release of issue four of my magazine Refueled. I am deeply humbled by all the great response. Refueled is a true labor of love and I am so honored to work with a cool group of staff and contributors. They help me shine. As long as you keep diggin' them, I'll keep putting them out. Peace.
