    My father in law was the head chef of the Hilton hotel in Coylumbridge, near Aviemore, in the highlands of Scotland for many years. He and my mother in law visited a few weeks ago and I tested out both my interviewing skills and an affordable wee sennheiser MKE400 dslr mic. The mic is reasonable, my interview leaves a lot to be desired but Andy makes up for it by immediately diving into a fantastic description of his younger days, in LA, on the broadwalks. He describes the incredible Predatory Bird cruiser board (the prototype used in The Lifestyle Promo is his prop) and he considers the current state of skateboarding from his unique point of view. I've never figured out whether he's a wild comic genius or just a mad old chef. I suspect the truth is that he's a combination. Allow me to introduce you to Andy.

                For a simple explanatory list of influences please visit the post at: http://www.thepredatorybird.com/?p=2585 Otherwise:- This video, of Anti-Hero alumni Div Adam and Tom Remillard, is inspired by the notion that we do not ultimately have any control over our decision to do anything. By the idea that the rocks that hit our wheels are unavoidable. The chain of events that led that rock to our wheel began with the big bang. The universe swirls and everything in it jostles into constantly varying arrangements that we are just aspects of. Choice is an illusion. For example: when Tom drops in I had no choice but to edit to Ground Zero off X-102 Discovers the Rings of Saturn by legendary Detroit Techno producers Underground Resistance (who's music evokes all the Pandora's Box hope and terror that sprung from the industrial revolution.) NO CHOICE! This decision was determined not by "me" but by the purest chance. Billions of years of evolution have led to this point.

                    The title of this video by Joe Pease comes from this essay - http://yhoo.it/IBn2mK - which contains paragraphs such as, "It is not uncommon for children to play with their shadows or to imagine that they are tangible. However, in order to grow up, children must leave behind this fantasy...no one ever fully grows up. Instead, growing up is a process that continues throughout life." Of course, it might just be a bunch of shadows. Music by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis.
