how do you want to life? is a question i keep on asking myself those days. big city buzz or beautiful countryside? at the moment i am tending towards the second option more. a friggebod is a pretty cool place to stay in my transit mode for the moment. it is a small structure of no more than 15 square meters and 3 meters in height that may be built without a special permit here in sweden. originally build as part of an architectural collaboration last summer, before the snow came the inside is now also nearly done. it feels like inside out when the window is open. love it!
some people don't know what they are talking about! pro skater nyjah huston is quoted saying the above in the new trasher issue, year 2013 mind you! his appologise was not much better and just the idea that women need to be 'protected' makes me cringe. i am waiting for the day when no body needs to be protected and we can all life free. trasher seems to back his sexist stereotyping, or at least that is the impression I get when look at their highlights and counting on my finger how many female skaters trasher published. don't buy trasher i say!
i am delighted to see what a stir this statement made. its wonderful to observe all those involved people and to see how many guys back up female skateboarding. cheers!

what if terrain park designers could create snow parks with intuitive 3d tools? or what if you could give freedom of movement to a child that can't breathe? and other questions where presented and illustrated at last weeks awesome design talks from the esteemed umeå institute of design.

last week i had a short stop in barcelona and happened to be able to have a sneaky peek preview of the x-games women park skaters during their training run on thursday. those ladies are killing it! it was an inspiration and pleasure to watch.

this well done little video captures a good minute of skateboarding. done by a german image-capture-man, the video is really an ad for a pretty arty skateboard mag called humbug. the zine comes out of dresden and looks good get it for two euros here.
what does the us-navy sponsorship deal say about the x-games? and the relationship between war, peace and skateboarding? what comes in my mind is the popular anti war slogan ‘bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity’. it does not make sense to advertise the navy at a skateboarding (among other ‘extreme’ sports) event, or does it?
bit of a freaky way of filming but good food for toughs on technology and employment. rasperry pi's founder eben upton advocates self-employment and highlights the importance to work on our environment and destiny rather then being controlled by technology or a large cooperation. i am all for it!
watch the thing over on bbc future.
