It’s better to have stories to tell than stuff to show off.

How good would it be if after the regular news each night, the “Happy News” came on and it was just stories of positive, amusing and awesome shit.

Seeing Beauty

11/13/2016 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, VIDEO, WORDS

I hit a dark patch earlier this year. It was reconnecting with nature that lifted the dark clouds. This was the first handful of shots I took after 6 months without picking up a camera. I’m going to keep focusing on the little pieces of beauty I see and posting the vision up here, and if it makes one person feel good I’ll feel good, and that’s what life’s about. Anxiety is the realest force I’ve felt since falling in love. It’s indescribable to those that haven’t felt it. Reach out if you’re feeling wack, don’t let the clouds and the claws get you. Talk to your family, talk to your friends! All we need is love! If you’re going through hell, keep going!

Dead Bees

09/28/2016 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, WORDS

I’ve found dead bees on my drive way every day this week. It makes me think…
Considering that your mother grew you in her belly and we inhabit a massive big blue planet that floats around an endless black space with the stars and moons I think it’s time we all started opening our minds.
I feel that so much of what we currently accept as ‘life’ is so far from reality it’s concerning. Has all of this ‘stuff’ in our lives been created to distract us from what really matters? As humans, we collectively go out of our way to destroy our own environment, often we elect politicians and give them our money so they can destroy it for a profit! that is fucked up! and so often the people who are trying to warn us are labelled as ‘hippies’…
At the end of the day we are the consumer, so if we stop buying their shit they’ll have to stop making it. If we stop listening to their bullshit, they’ll eventually stop dribbling it.
All the best things in life are still free; Sunshine, the ocean, music, love, fresh air, laughter. Turn off your TV, let them have their greed and their fear mongering. Stop believing in the things that divide us. It doesn’t matter what colour you are or what country you come from, whether you like girls or boys or both, we are all part of this human race. It’s time to get back to basics. Love yourself, love your family, love your neighbours, love the land. Love is the key. We only have one earth and once she’s rotten we’re done.

food for thought

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There’s a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you time is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check his watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. The fear of time running out.

I went back to basics with the Brigade design, it’s the sort of style I was scribbling up back in High School.

We want to feel comfy and look good in our tees so we have ensured that the tee itself is the perfect cut and weight for our brand.

You know those people who have a classic head, just the sight of them makes ya smile. While I dont see ya much mate, I remember watching your ‘sponsor me’ video in the office at Billabong many years ago. There was a pile of discs, most of them got ditched and yours made it through to Brucey Lee’s office with a post it note on it saying ‘This kid rips’. Well done, well deserved.
