Out now from Freshjive are the first t shirt and cap designs based on particular classified Pentagon Black Operation patches. The patches are from a recent book, “I Could Tell You but Then You Would Have to Be Destroyed by Me,” by Trevor Paglen. The patches refer to the hidden reality behind the Pentagon’s classified “black” budget which provides billions in dollars to supposed stealth government projects.
See HERE on the 6 page article which includes more information, the pieces, and a previous video of Trevor Paglen on the Colbert Report.

The Reserve Store, Freshjive, and RMK bring you Joey Altruda's Vinyl
Meltdown Show on Reserve Radio and introductory video:Click HERE.
We’d like to introduce you to Joey Altruda and his Vinyl Meltdown show on
Reserve Radio. Joey’s been a fixture in the Los Angeles music scene for
about 28 years. He first made his mark in the early 80s with post punk band
Tupelo Chain Sex, then later with Jump With Joey, in which his blend of
traditional Jamaican Ska and Afro-Cuban rhythms lead him to the forefront
of the third wave Ska movement. His 1995 release of “Cocktails with Joey”
also set the pace for the lounge music revival incorporating the exotic
sound stylings of Les Baxter, Esquivel and Henry Mancini with Ennio
Morricone and Tito Puente. Besides being an accomplished composer and
arranger, he is also the proprietor of the longest running recording studio
in Los Angeles, first opened in about 1936, now known only as “Joeys Place”.
Please check out his timeless shows at
http://www.reservela.net/radio_blog.php and his extremely
informative and entertaining blog http://jumpwithjoey.blogspot.com/
Our homie Baby Yu put some hours into this one. No doubt a classic. Click HERE for the download.

Emerica’s Wild in the Streets main event goes international for the first time! The Emerica team will be heading up to Vancouver, BC, Canada for Go Skateboarding Day on June 21, 2009, for Wild in the Streets. This year, Wild in the Streets will benefit LeeSide
An Emerican army consisting of a few thousand skateboarders will charge the streets of Vancouver during the Wild in the Streets 2009. Emerica is hosting the event this year to raise awareness about Lee Matasi, to raise money to help LeeSide continue to grow, and to support the Vancouver skateboarding community. Emerica will be selling t-shirts and all funds raised during the event will go toward the construction of new obstacles for LeeSide.
In case you need another reason to head to Vancouver, the Emerica team will be making an appearance at Underworld on Saturday, June 20th at 2:00 p.m., followed by a session at LeeSide with the entire team.
Benefiting Leeside, available at Wild in the Streets Vancouver.

Dr.@g0n has done it again, this time going where no mythical creature has gone before- the internet. Featuring Rob Machado himself, the Online Experience Web Game challenges you to 3 games, 9 waves during 3 months for 1 lucky winner from 5 regions around the world to win an all expenses paid trip to hang out with Rob in California for 1 week.
You and 5 other luck winners from Europe, Latin America, Australia and Japan, will be posted up in a house on the beach with an itinerary of one thing only- FUN. For starters, not only will you be hanging out with Rob at the WCT Trestles event, but how does VIP passes to the 2009 Surfer Poll Awards sound? Even better, why not check out Dr.@g0n’s laboratory and see where all the baby Dragons are made?
The video game format is simple. Each game is inspired by one of Rob’s new Experience sunglass colorways. The first game- The Momentum, takes you back in time to Pipe Masters 2000 where you have to beat Rob at a pinnacle moment in his career. After that, you experience The Journey. Travel with Rob around the world to his favorite surf spots and show him you know how to put the soul back in surfing better than he does. Lastly, you play the E.C.O. and work with Rob on raising environmental awareness for famous waves around the world in danger of extinction. In addition to the overall winners prize, signed sunglasses by Rob Machado and free giveaway packs will be provided to the top 10 winners of each game. So step inside and feel the vibe of the Rob Machado Online Experience Web Game, it’s like Atari but better and FREE!

This past Saturday, June 30th, we headed to Lévis, on the South-Shore of Québec City, to host the qualifications for éS Game of S.K.A.T.E. With 44 skaters registered, including 5-0, DLX and EXO team riders, rolling in three lines, the competition level was high.
The crowd of over 200 peoples was wild! At the end of the grill, we had Sebastien Paradis, Gabriel Touchette and Marius the Romanian for a three guys final. After Sebastien was eliminated, the game was tight until Marius eventually took Gab out with a Nollie Bigspin Flip. Big thanks to Etienne and his crew at 5-0 Boardshop, to the city of Lévis and to éS footwear for making it happen.
Also want to thank Michael Tremblay for the pictures. More pictures and video on the way at www.5-0boardshop.com
