Stereo was in the House!

This past Saturday, May 6th, the Stereo Team was in full effect at our Burbank Store. We premiered the all new 411 Video and had a signing in which we were graced by the presence of, none other than, Jason Lee, the man, the myth, the legend. Anyway Jason took some time out of his busy schedule to hang out with us and we appreciate that. What we also appreciate is everyone who came out and supported this event. It was a good time with good tunes and good people. Red Bull was awesome and brought out free drinks for everyone. Stereo also provided us with limited edition posters for the event that were all numbered and signed by the team throughout the night.

Thanks to everyone who made this event a success! Red Bull, Stereo, my crew, Corey, Boomer & Tammy and Active Burbank!

Don’t forget to check out Stereo Product. I’ve heard that if you buy it, you are instantly the coolest person in a 10 foot diameter! Try it out, see if it works!

Ambiguous Corey Smith Art Show


We had a Corey Smith Art Show with Ambiguous, in Costa Mesa at the CAMP, on the 8th of April and it went off like the fourth of July! If you don't already know who Corey Smith is, he is an amazing Artist as well as a talented Professional Snowboarder. Corey is a well-rounded acrobat, of sorts.


We had a fully stocked wine, champagne, & Red Bull bar, tons of Chipotle and a couple Dj's kickin' the party up a notch all night. The show was at the CAMP in Costa Mesa and if you are in the area you have to check this place out, it's amazing. Many art lovers, Active & Ambiguous Enthusiasts and friends showed up. Everyone from Dylan Reider, theSkateboardMag's current issue- #27, New Jack, to Johnny Layton, Active Mailorder's Newest Pro.

Every time I have been to an art show there is always a weird sense of uncomfort, maybe it's just me, but this time around everyone was amazing and welcoming. There are two factors that I can also place blame on the fact that this went so well with:

A: There was a lot of booze flowing from about 6 pm, so by 8 pm everyone was just having a good time, by 11pm they flying by the seat of their pants.

B: That this was simply a harmonious crowd that wanted to co-exist in relentless peace and love that only exists in fairy tales.

I don't know which is right or which is more appropriate, but it was a positive experience nonetheless.

Ambiguous is rad, Corey Smith is rad, the CAMP is rad and we can't thank all of them enough, for making this night as memorable as it was, for everyone in attendance. Until next time:

KAYO Video Premiere’s-‘Check Um’


We had a two-day KAYO Video Premiere fest on March 24th and 25th and they both went amazingly well. The first night was at Rancho the kids were out and all about KAYO. There were people freestyle rapping for product and everything you'd hope to see at something KAYO is a part of! We had a huge signing there and the night was over only to re-live it again the next night in Burbank.
