1. BOOGIE BOARDERS EATEN ALIVE AT NEWPORT BEACH
This friday I was in L.A. for a new project and had a chance to visit Newport beach and watch some serious boogie boarders and surfers get eaten alive by some gnarly sets of waves at what they call the “wedge”. They were pretty big and breaking on the beach . . . it was very fun to watch, and I managed to catch one really cool wipeout, or intentional backflip – you decide!

2. GOLF AT SHERWOOD COUNTRY CLUB
Yes, I played a game at sherwood country club – where, as you can see by the swanky locker room door with his name on it, Wayne Gretzky’s a member. It was a boiling hot day, and the course was amazing, but the real treatment was the Locker room. Let’s just say it was nothing like the YMCA’s – closer to the Vail SonnenAlp’s Spa! Look where I landed a VOLTAGE ball! Send more work, we’ll send more golfballs!!
3. ERIC FORSYTH ROCKS THE SOILED DOVE and KBCO!
Eric Forsyth – a local musician who VOLTAGE designed a CD for – played the Soiled Dove last weekend opening for Ryan Shupe and The Rubber Band. Eric put on a killer performance and impressed everyone present with his fresh sounds and finger kung-fu on the guitar. It was a great performance – way to go Eric, and he’s now on the KBCO new artists page. The more you listen, the more his ranking climbs equaling airtime on KBCO. Here’s a clip of the first song of his set FUSE. With a couple cameos by the waitress( sorry ) Ryan Shupe was also excellent, check out some videos of them at the VOLTAGE Youtube page!
4. VOTE FOR VOLTAGE!
Mountain Dew has taken their new beverage to the people with their DEWMOCRACY campaign. What’s great is they’ve picked a great name for one of the new candidates. VOLTAGE! It actually doesn’t taste that great to me . . . as my wife bought me a case and I tried a couple, and the packaging is typical soft drink cheesy, but the site is very cool – let’s you create your own campaigns for the flavor you like, building videos, etc. Because of the name we’re getting the vote out!!
5. COMMON THREADZ ON JOSHSPEAR.COM
Our own boulder county “cool-hunter” Josh Spear featured Common Threadz! A non-profit that donates a school uniform to children in need for every T-shirt it sells, and of which VOLTAGE designed the logo and other marketing pieces. Check it out here.
