Vans teams up with Skateboarder Mag for some retro ’70s shirts, The Black Lips release Noc-A-Homa video, and Sex, Caffeine, and Alcohol. I’m eddie DaRoza, and here’s your Daily Detour.
I dare to submit to you that the 1970s was the golden era of skateboarding. The raddest time ever. Skateparks were everywhere, everyone had a blast, and skating had a good style. Vans has collaborated with Skateboarder Magazine, the definitive mag of the 70s on a new line to celebrate the bygone era. Check out this promo clip.
Like a fish needs water, I NEED to pick up a few of these shirts.
Oh hey. I’m just here enjoying my red bull. If I had a little vodka in here there’s a good chance I’d be on the look out for some casual sex. Because you know that’s how it goes, and scientists just proved it. According to an new study published in the Journal of Caffeine Research, young people who mix energy drinks and alcohol are much more likely to have random hookups then just regular old drunks. The scientist in charge says the reason is because “when you’re drinking lots of alcohol your judgement is impaired, and if you’re having caffeine you don’t realize how impaired you are.” But I think there’s a different reason. People who like caffeine and alcohol are more likely to like like fun. And having sex is fun.
And finally today… you might have heard the Black Lips ode to one of the greatest baseball mascots of all-time, Chief Noc-a-Homa. The indian lived in a teepee in left field, prayed for homers, and just did some cool stereotypical native american stuff. The Black Lips just released a video for the song. Here’s a clip.
Ok that’s all for me. I’m outta here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
