ABC News reports on the extremes of celebrity gossip.

The Legend of Wilfredo Gomez

Check out the cameos from skateboarding's top pros and legends... Gonz, The Boss, Koston, Steve Olsen...(It's really too many names to list here...)

HARVEST by haroshi "Skate & Destroy" Exhibition

HARVEST by haroshi has been a refreshing take on recycled artwork, known for producing various items out of used skate decks. Showcasing all of the collective’s work throughout the years, they recently held an exhibition at the PLSMIS Gallery in Tokyo.

"Skate decks eventually see its life shortened by snapping, cracking and/or wearing out. Purchasing new decks is a never ending cycle and this was evident by the tower of old decks that were reaching to the ceiling of my room. We can’t throw away these decks because they hold sentimental meanings to us. I looked at these unusable decks every day and thought there must be something I can make with these. I decided to make some accessories with the old decks and this was the birth of Harvest. The works of Harvest are through the perspectives of a skater and as an artist. As a skater, I want to take responsibility of reusing skateboards when they were no longer useable. Also, as an artist I want to explore the possibilities of what can be done with skateboards. We see the care and effort that a skater can have for his/her deck and we also acknowledge the origins of a skateboard. We believe that if the small things we do can connect to sustainability then we’re doing something right. We’d be satisfied in our effort when people look at products and start thinking of ways to recycle."

The Edge of Never

A documentary feature film set in the world of big mountain skiing, The Edge of Never is a real-life coming of age saga about the tribe of skiers who challenge the biggest, most dangerous mountains in the world. In 1996 extreme-skiing legend Trevor Petersen was killed in Chamonix, France. Nine years later, skiing icon Glen Plake decides it’s time for Trevor’s 15-year-old son, Kye, to ski the route that killed his father and join the tribe of big-mountain skiers. In this thrilling film, three generations of skiers mentor Kye as he attempts to finish his father’s final run. A ripping adventure tale of a young man coming of age, The Edge of Never is also a rich and subtle portrait of men and women who live big in the face of their greatest fears. Written and directed by William A. Kerig, produced by Peter Schweitzer, based on the book of the same title written by Kerig, The Edge of Never was shot on location in Chamonix, France.

Independent Fabrications x Bodega x Bailey Works

Sometime back Bodega had news of an upcoming project between themselves, Independent Fabrications out of New England and renowned bag makers Bailey Works. Out of the collaboration came a special project which consisted of 3 custom bikes (fixie, drop down cruiser, and swing back cruiser) with three different bags to match, alongside a series of t-shirts. Only 15 bikes in each style were built, each individually numbered with paint schemes based off vintage spray paint colors, synonymous through 80s graffiti culture. Featured is a video that dives into the project, courtesy of the folks at High Snobiety.

Imagine being able to use your smart phone to accept credit card payments from your friends that owe you money, and always use the excuse of "never having cash" on them.

The Square team has been developing this innovative service since February, 2009, and just launched its beta phase. Their goal is to bring "immediacy, transparency, and approachability to the world of payments: an inherently social interaction each of us participates in daily." Square's innovation is a small adapter that plugs into the audio output jack of any smart phone. After setting up an online account, you can use this adapter to accept credit card payments for anything. Square eliminates receipts, gives rewards and even donates a penny from every purchase to a cause of your choice. Beyond shopping, this little device offers a powerful tool to anyone who needs to raise money. It could be scaled to meet a variety of needs, like increasing community donations for a cause or an emergency.
