From @benharper : "Mike Vallely is a brother to me so his family is my family and vice versa. When his youngest daughter @lucy_vallely asked if she could use a song of mine for an original dance piece she choreographed, I was honored. When I saw how much work she put into it, I was inspired to make something that would hopefully match her creatively. Lucy Vallely is a special talent and I hope you enjoy her dance and this alternate take on "Diamonds on the Inside" recorded live at the Machine Shop." — Ben You can watch the video filmed and edited by @tednewsome here: http://youtu.be/QqV9fOGuyJc #lucyvallely #benharper
STREET PLANT Coming Soon: Introducing the new leaner, meaner, lighter, cleaner and engineered for the streets Street Axe: (Length: 32 3/8 Width: 9 Wheel Base: 14.5 Nose: 6 7/8 Tail: 6 3/4) One of the best parts of developing @streetplantbrnd is working directly with @professorschmitt at PS Stix to perfect our shapes, molds and builds to be the very best they can be for the skaters that buy and use our boards. This extra time and care invested in our products and the ability to work closely and directly with our manufacturer is truly a breath of fresh air. Working and spending time with someone like Paul, who is as passionate about skating and our products as we are makes this all worthwhile. This isn’t about supply and demand of some cheap, soulless product — This is about skaters developing and making products for skaters. With the help and guidance of Professor Schmitt the new Street Axe from Street Plant is now a reality. We can’t wait to get our full production line of street boards out and under the feet of skaters everywhere. Hang tight and we’ll keep you posted as soon as our street boards are available and which shops and distributors will be carrying our products. Also, this one off prototype Street Axe featured in this video, hand cut and stenciled by Professor Schmitt, will soon be made available via a giveaway on the @streetplantbrnd Instagram account… So, if you don’t already follow @streetplantbrnd on Instagram now is the time to do so.

I started playing ice hockey when I was 20. I played in my first professional hockey game w/ the @danburywhalershockey in 2010 when I was 40 — Most likely making me the oldest rookie in the history of pro hockey. Of course, we all know how that worked out for me… After 5 seconds of being on the ice, I squared up with Joe Pelle and had my arm badly broken. Hear the whole story of what happened and how it happened on the latest episode of my podcast @themikevshow where I am once again joined by author, philosopher and friend Daniele Bolelli. Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/the-mike-v-show/episode-4-failure-glorious-failure Topics of Discussion: • The 1972 Summit Series. • Sports reveal character. • Being a seeker. • Becoming a pro hockey player and breaking my arm in my first game. • Critics don't matter #mikevallely #themikevshow #danielebolelli

STREET PLANT @kristiansvitak Still Charging: "The outcast soon found himself unintentionally representing one of skating’s stylistic trends. "This was when the whole phrase of “Hesh” was being thrown around. People over the years have said: ‘Oh you’re Hesh dude!’ I’m like: ‘What the fork is Hesh?’. I’ve never even thought of that. I’m just some skate rat. I wear flannels because I grew up in Cleveland and it was cold and I was punk rock. I wore a trucker hat because I have a huge head.” Read the entire article by @parkingblockdiaries here: http://www.streetplantbrand.com/kristian-svitak-still-charging/ Photo @burnout Hollywood, CA / 2004 #kristiansvitak #streetplantbrand @streetplantbrnd

I've played over sixty shows with @brandonpertzborn drumming in both BF and @revomutha but last night in LA was the first time I got to see him play from out in the audience and he did not disappoint. In his first gig ever w/ @doylewvf (and with practically no practice with the band) Brandon laid it down hard... Congrats to Brandon on the new gig... I'm looking forward to seeing them again tonight in OC and if Doyle comes to your town go check them out!!! : Photo @karenmandall Las Vegas, NV / 2014 #brandonpertzborn #mikevallely #Doyle
