The first time I heard fIREHOSE was in 1989 when I watched the Santa Cruz skateboarding video Streets on Fire. This video session featured Natas Kaupas, one of the Godfathers of street skating as we know it today. The song Brave Captain and Natas’ skateboarding blew me away! From that moment on, I had a new favorite band.

Of all the conferences I’ve attended, An Event Apart Seattle 2012 was by far the best conference to date. I always get all fired up after attending a conference but usually there’s a presentation or a workshop session that bores me. Not this time. This time around even Jon Tan’s presentation, Big Type, Little Type, had my full attention… and I’m not a type nerd!
I tend to blah blah blah when I write, so I’ll get to the point and just say a lil somfin somfin about each speaker.
