After 2 weeks of being listed as an RV missing person a photo of James has been emailed to us here at Runamuk Visuals… A young lady from Hossegor, France emailed us this photo just yesterday… the photo came with a short letter along the lines of

‘To RV missing persons…. we found this guy roaming the streets of our home town…invited him over for a drink as one of my friends found him quite handsome… he insisted his name was Taipan, and would not answer to anything but, we knew it not be true, no mother would ever name her son that…the night went on and as the music began to play Taipan went crazy… this is the only photo we were able to take as he would ‘hiss’ each time he saw the camera… we woke up and he was gone… we hope this can help you find him… we understand what he means to you as we all became quite attatched after only a few hours”

3 weeks in to the Billabong World Junior movie… ‘NUTZ NARRA’… The pieces are finally falling into place…

It’s set to have the look’n’feel of the 80’s punk movement…RATTY…HAGGARD…MESSY… NOISEY… The whole electro thing has been bitin’ at me & i’d be pretty happy to never hear it again… I looked back at where my head was at fresh out of highschool and the music that used to get me amped for a surf… PUNK and only PUNK… the faster, the louder, the better… Bad Religion, Rancid, Minor Threat, all those paced out punk bands that never left the tape player… So PUNK became the basis of the project

The event itself provided more vision than any competiton in years… 4-6 foot clean one day, 6-8 foot and ugly the next… and the best junior surfers on the planet… So the vision was sorted… The only thing left to make a surf vid entertaining is MUSIC… Probably just as important as the vision itself… maybe more?

I trawled through myspace for a large part of August… the strike rate was probably about 1 in 10… but that 1 in 10 were pure punk bliss…

At this point in the movie the bands that are lookin’ like starters are – KILLERBIRDS, NEIGHBOURHOOD SWINE, CHAINGANG, ANGRY KID & LOOKING GLASS… a heap of others bands I havent found the place for yet will feature aswell… So if you get the chance, jump on myspace or tripleJ unearthed and have a listen and show some support for some of Australia’s finest punk outfits.

After you’ve done that keep your eyes out on this page for preview edits of ‘NUTZ NARRA’… once you have watched one, sign up and let me know what you thought…

’til then… cheese ya grater

Sex Cruise are the result of too much time and twice as much talent…2 haggard ex tewantiners, Tbone & Uncle LP, now residents of brisbane…While the people sleep these nocturnal bastards emerge from the smokey haze, stagger their way home and into some early morning freestyle like you have and will never hear again…

We have had more leads since James’s disappearance… however they have all come up empty handed… to save dwelling, RV will post the odd clip here and there to pass the time and hopefully ease the confusion of James’s whereabouts…

Well the plan of having loaded with clips and pics and art has been put on hold until we track down James ‘Taipan’ Wood… for now the sole purpose of is locating James… The feedback has been overwhelming but has given us no answers… at this point we still consider James an ‘RV MISSING PERSON’. A clip featuring vision of James the day before the disappearance will be live in the coming days, hopefully it may give us some insight into a practical joke we all sorely regret… We here at thankyou for your ongoing support.

the RV resurrection begins

09/02/2008 - Posted by RV in ARCHIVES, WORDS

So here it is…… who would of thought that such a haggard bunch could find themselves a place on the world wide web… I’d say we’re gonna enjoy our time here… considering the smut and shit that this place is littered with, we think RV will be well accommodated, regardless of what debauchery we post.

The purpose?… we’re not too sure on… The aim of the site ?… who cares?… all we know is… as time goes by you will get too see what goes on as Runamuk Visuals steps further and further into the unknown…

You will get the odd blog from the riders… which we should let you know of…THE RIDERS…at this point RV is a scattered crew of Australia’s most unique boardriders from Wade, Dean, Joycey, Mitch, Sedz, Lee, Campbell on the Sunny coast to the Dozza’s, Leckie, Laurie, MadWilly further down the coast and back on 4 wheels with Sammy Winter and Karl Bayldon… the team extends far and wide and they’re just a few of the characters you will get to see and hear from as time goes by… We will feature ‘creative beings’, Artists, Filmmakers, Musicians and so on, some very beautiful girls and some early aRchiVe vision that will let you see where Runamuk Visuals came from… and as long as we can work it out… where we are headed.

Before we get too carried away with ‘now’ its needs to be known that ‘then’ wont be forgotten… the originals… ’98 onwards saw the likes of a team that gave Runamuk Visuals its life and soul… names that wont show up on google, names that never left the sunny coast ’cause the surfing world never new it existed until now…these guys are the reason RV ever started… you will get to see some crusty old vision of some very talented and interesting riders.

There will be pages devoted to the current film projects I will be working on as well as some older projects that may never of seen the light of day…RV might reach a point with an edit where we are not sure whether its hitting the spot, if so it will be thrown up here for you to critique… your thoughts good or bad are welcome… terrible even?… but you’ll probably get blocked…gamin’…

We will attempt to talk about the shit that goes down in an around the boarding/ music/ art world… pretty much anything that interests us, you’ll get too see or hear…

We are gonna avoid the informative and aim for the entertainment side of things… so if RV gets their mits on the raw vision from an event you will see the best and only the best bits here… no hosts with corny handjives throwing shakkas and ‘check this out, cowabunga’ … it will be the best vision with the best underground music we can find…

So all in all will be a place to let it out… if one of us gets capsicum sprayed, bashed and locked up one night out your gonna hear about it, if someone wakes up next to a bangchong your gonna hear about it, if someone nails a new trick your gonna hear about it… If theres a story to tell it will be told here…

then again, we might fuck it all up…
