517: The art of Chris Pastras :Stereo Sound Agency’s Co-Captain and Derek Rinaldi a new Sound Agent.


I have never met NJ hometown hero Chris Pastras but regardless I  dig the style and aesthetic he has created with Stereo Sound Agency. Like the Rat Pack in Salvation army clothes walking resevoir dog style exiting a private jet onto a tiki bar laden island in the sixties….in full color. Thats sorta how I see it. Forget the center… move way over and create a new center, thats how I dig it and and they live it.  Our favorite son Derek Rinaldi has begun to contribute over on the Stereo Sound Agency blog and me-thinks you should check it out.

……and I think I put a large percentage of these hits on this clip

something about the music and the repetition…coolness

The House of Steam 364: Jason Lee 1992

482: Mike Vallely vs. Jesse Martinez vs. Jason Lee…great stuff SMA Hobo Tour 1989

Video Shot by Fred Fraley and Edited by Clark Fraley

This video was a demo in Lynchburg VA.  I dig this era of street skating, all the tricks still seem within the realm of possibility but yet still impossible….Mike Vallely skates realllll fast…Jason Lee shows he is one of the all time great street skaters …We know jesse martinez is great but not enough footage of him here….

Something so cool about this video…I think I am responsible for 80 percent of its hits.

Great photo.Maybe one of the all time great skate photos. Todd Laffler is good at creating Iconic images..couple things I dig here, Dune is one of my favorite books(admittedly unrelated) also this is my old neighborhood and I can smell the Krispy Kreme donuts just off camera to the right and another is I couldn’t do a g turn (I must admit I could barely do a lower case i turn) to save my life let alone a knee scraping stylish one including such a dramatic and iconic back drop…well done. As far as Dune goes? … chime in and  tell everyone about him and his skating and Stereo Sound Agencyness

Here is a cool piece written by an old friend Derek Rinaldi for the Stereo Sound Agency Blog
