The WKND video was good. I like them, but not really beyond that. They always kind of zig when they should zag. I tend to compare them to Welcome, since both started to gain prominence at roughly the same time. Welcome has better to me art and music selection, whereas WKND ain't afraid to run a terrible 90s pop hit to spoil the cream. I do generally appreciate their board graphics and ads. Christian Maalouf is awesome. I heard he just got on Globe.

Wasn't there airplane hi-jinx on the flight across the Atlantic for one of the Big Brother DC Super Tours? I think Dimitri Elyashkevich found a little kid who was willing to randomly say whatever joke they told him to? Legend has it the kid woke up a sleeping Scott by saying, "My video part was longer than yours."

I know there's a ton of debate over what to do with the legacy of Big Brother, but bits of harmless silly business like this are worth keeping around.

Giant distributed Black Label after Mad Circle ended.

Lucky was Think/Deluxe.

CCS catalogs are the most boring scan work ever. It's never ending pages of tiny rectangles and squares. I'm at the point where I'm anti-catalogs. Company product catalogs are fine, but, yeah, no CCS.

A funny thing about some of their catalogs is that THEY DON'T EXIST ANYMORE.

I've had dudes email me about scans who said they've talked to people who used to work there and even the new version of CCS doesn't have the old files or a huge archive of any sort. Nobody across the board collectively saved anything apparently so there is no fossil record. I'm somebody who saves everything and even I started tossing them around about 1999. It's a minor black hole of lost information about skateboarding.
