PARE-CHOCS [BUMPER]

Poems, Short Stories, Meditations

BRUNO GREEN

English Translation by Rosemary Rahill

In order to understand the musical and creative universe of French artist and producer Bruno Green, Pare-Chocs is a must read. Poetry from Pare-Chocs has been fused with Green’s musical talent in his album A Tombeau Ouvert. Green reveals his vision of the world, between hope, disenchantment and frenetic energy, in a writing style that is engaging yet simple.

When Green is not performing on stage with his sleek voice and his guitar, when he is not mixing and recording his music and that of others…. when he retreats from the beat of the musical scene … you can find him writing.

This book is a collection of short stories, a diary, and poetry, taking place over a period of one year. Green’s internal musical rhythm sets the pace for this gripping 12-month journey.

A SECRET HISTORY OF THE OLLIE

Volume 1: The 1970s

CRAIG B. SNYDER

Every culture has a creation myth and skateboarding is no different. The Ollie forged a new identity for skateboarding after its invention in the 1970s, and it lies at the root of nearly every significant move in street skating today. This groundbreaking no-handed aerial has also affected the evolution of surfing and snowboarding, and has left a permanent impression upon popular culture and language. This is the story of the Ollie, the technology that set the stage for its creation, the pioneers who made it happen, and the skaters who used it to start a revolution.
