Donate To The New Shitside

In case you haven't seen the latest Craigslist post regarding KHVT/Shitside:

KHVT began as a D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself) skate spot in 2009 under the Kingshighway bridge in St. Louis, Missouri with donated materials and the volunteer efforts of local skateboarders. The spot quickly garnered the support of the community, the St. Louis City Streets Department and the City's 10th Ward Alderman, Joe Vollmer, as it transformed a graffiti- and crime-ridden area into a safe and well-maintained space.

Unfortunately, the 76-year-old South Kingshighway bridge is deteriorating structurally. The City plans on destroying it and rebuilding a new bridge within the next year, leaving no legal, free place for the skaters of the city to skate.

To ensure that the skateboarders of St. Louis will still have a place to skate, KHVT must act quickly. We are working closely with St. Louis City's Land Re-utilization Authority (LRA) to find small, unused city owned properties to be transformed into free, public "skate gardens."

KHVT, now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, has been working with the city since 2010 to make the first Skate Garden project a reality - and we're getting close. The LRA has granted KHVT a $1 annual lease on a 14,000-sqare-foot property on South Morganford. So now all we need is the funding and materials for the actual construction. More than $17,000 of the $50,000 needed to complete this project has already been raised through fundraisers, a challenge grant from the Tony Hawk Foundation and government monies pledged by Ald. Carol Howard of the 14th Ward.

For more info or MONETARY DONATIONS check out KHVT.ORG

Mixtape Alert: Bebe O'Hare - Fashionably Late

Bebe O'Hare is one of the dopest female rappers I know of, and luckily I was fortunate enough to work with her on several occasions.   Trust me when I say the whole project is DOPE.  Not a biased opinion just because she is my homie.  In addition to her own lyrical genius, she surprised me with several features including Wiz Khalifa, Chevy Woods, and BJ The Chicago Kid.  Not to mention every beat is something you can vibe to.  Bebe is out here doing her thing and its fuckin' sick to witness one of the homies gradually get closer to living the dream.  Give the project a listen below and swag it out with a download.

Also, WATC is "Fashionably Late" with posting this since the mixtape dropped several weeks ago

Capturing Space and Time with Chris Pettaway

How would you describe your lifestyle and in your own words how would you define the word lifestyle?

To me lifestyle is your daily movements in this existence that we call life....but if i had to describe my lifestyle it could be summed up in two words "out here" cause from sun up to sun down im constantly acting and reacting and imposing my will on everthing that i come into contact with so i just try and make the best and get the most out of every single situation and experience

Yeaaaah Hoe!!
