Q&A with Blake Boston (Scumbag Steve) Disclaimer: This article contains explicit language! In the past week, we’ve been talking over e-mails with Blake Boston, also known as Scumbag Steve on the Internets. Based on a Myspace picture of Blake taken circa 2006, the image macro series quickly thrived into everyone’s favorite joke about “that guy” who’s fading away in our memories of high school years, still blasting that mix CD out of his souped up Honda in school parking lot (even though he was expelled years ago). But in real life, Blake’s fictional internet fame has become a taxing ordeal for the soon-to-be father from Boston. Here’s the full transcript of our Q&A interview with the man.

With a Passion for Skateboarding: Creative Art Sculptures by Haroshi Now that’s a sick madness! If you have never heard about Japanese wood sculptor named Haroshi, go get the wind of his most original conceptual art. As a creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks, Haroshi passed for a man of considerable resourcefulness. His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so in whichever way it’s even possible to mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels.
