POOLSIDE // COURTSIDE

08/26/2015 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, FRIENDS OF RV, PHOTOGRAPHY, PROJECTS, VIDEO

While working on a recent project we found ourselves with a few spare hours in between shoots. We called Jaz, we had no plans, no direction and basically said… ‘Let’s shoot something, we’ll just make it up as we go… The light is nice, there’s a pool on one side of our apartment, a tennis court the other’… Sometimes no direction is the best direction, but only sometimes.

This is  ‘POOLSIDE // COURTSIDE’

TAPE

08/24/2015 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, WORDS

I grew up with tapes. Cassettes & VHS, TDK Headcleaners that you had to drip liquid into and shit like that, and for some sentimental reason they created better memories, or the pictures & sounds that came out of them had more meaning than the digital days we’re in now. It’s all so easy now, back in the day you had to beg to lend a mate’s new surf vid off him or raid his parents cupboards for their porn, then take note of where the tape was up too and make sure you rewound it back to the exact spot, there was a science to tape, you had to make mix tapes, not just drag and drop a playlist… (There’s probably older crew than me reading this thinking… ‘check this prick out, I had film and records motherfucker!’). Either way, its 2015 now and if you fuck off the advertisements, You tube is one of the greatest things of the 21st century, and the main reason why? It’s because some bored motherfuckers found all these old tapes and  have ‘digitized’ for everyone to enjoy. Cassette’s brought me Rage against the machine, Nirvana, Rancid, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd & Sabbath. VHS brought me Momentum, Focus, Searching for Tom Curren, Wheels on Fire and more importantly, Eddie Murphy ‘Delirious’. The greatest comedy of my lifetime. My dad hired it from Tewantin Video and we never took it back, I watched it every morning before school for months until we melted the thing. I used to get on the school bus and recite Eddie… ‘She’s a bigfoot Gus’… I knew more lines from Delirious than any Nirvana album. Anyhow, Blah blah, I’ve had a big day of editing and so I just watched a piece from Delirious to make it all go away in laughter… ‘I kick the motherfucker with everything I got Eddie, and then I giggle my motherfuckin’ ass off’.

Excuse all the swearing but I’m high on Eddie Murphy right now. I also named my new dog Eddie.

With the event at Chopes underway the one question I ask is, why the fuck isn’t Laurie Towner a wildcard? Go ask the best surfers to list there top 5 at Chopes and you’d see Laurie on every list. Very few are as comfortable, as stylish and as fearless at Chopes as Laurie Towner.

Sentimental Sundays

08/15/2015 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO

My boy came across a box of old Creative Destruction DVD’s in the studio the other day and he asked… ‘Are these yours Dad, did you make them?’… ‘Yeah Bill, I made that movie with Wade and Duncs and a few crew. You were actually in your mum’s belly for a lot of it’… ‘Can we watch it Dad?’… So for the first time since I checked and made sure the master DVD worked many moons ago I sat down and watched ‘Odds & Ends’ the final film from the project, just my boy and I. It was so cool to see how much he dug the video and the music and how many questions he had about all the waves and things Wade was doing. You gotta cherish moments like that, ’cause when I look back at memories I have of my Dad it’s the little times in life that manage to sit in your memory years down the track.
Anyhow, I know there’s a few old Creative Destruction fans out there, so here she is if you wanna get a little sentimental on a Sunday arvo. Enjoy.

Thought I should write something with substance in this joint, something that might help a mate or a stranger. If you’re battling a bout of anxiety or depression go get active, get as active as you possibly can, even if it’s running fence to fence in your backyard like a mad man. Exhaust yourself physically and it’ll help ease your mind and clear a few dark clouds. Along with the ocean it’s one thing that really helps me when my mind starts getting the jitters, and if those few words can help someone else shake it off, well fuck yeah to that. Some of the most talented, creative and intelligent people I know battle with anxiety and depression, it’s not a weakness, it’s just the way some of us are wired. NB: If that doesn’t work, put on any Slayer album, turn it way up and bounce fence to fence.
