A CALLING – The stronghold is a place where a community regroups, a place to stand your ground and together face all of lifes challenges… to ride out the coming storm. Lakotas have a word, “SKAN” interpreted as “something that moves”. Spiritual vitality, the force of life itself, something each of us and all of life possess within. It is believed the black birds fly to warn of the approaching storm, of hard times to come… but it is not to create fear, its is to build compassion, togetherness and hope amongst the people, for once the storm passes, we get renewal… a clearer view from within, this is our Stronghold Society call to action.

C. To create and sustain an art resource studio and skateboarding park on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, SD to provide Native youth an outlet for their creativity through resources collected and/or developed by Stronghold Society.

Don Letts’ Out of Print Landmark Punk Documentary
To Be Reissued On DVD
January 11, 2011 via Shout! Factory
Los Angeles, CA – In the mid-1970s, a revolution was ignited on the streets of New York and London. Almost overnight, punk shattered the status quo and continued to impact all future generations of youth culture. On January 11, 2010, Shout! Factory will release the long out-of-print documentary PUNK: Attitude.
Directed by Don Letts, the film and its extensive bonus features, chronicle the origin of punk music and its socio-cultural and musical impact through interviews with key figures such as Henry Rollins, Thurston Moore, Jello Biafra, Chrissie Hynde and more. A must-have for fans of punk music, documentary aficionados and DVD collectors, the two-disc set of PUNK: Attitude is priced for everyone to own at $19.93.
With a cast of historic and modern figures in popular culture, the documentary ventures beyond the hype and explores the way punk music redefined popular music and fashion while legitimizing an independent, do-it-yourself attitude that inspired an entire generation of musicians, filmmakers, poets, photographers, fashion designers and graphic artists.
“With hindsight we are able to recognize it as part of an ongoing movement of counterculture,” says filmmaker Don Letts adding, “It is in that spirit that I made this film, not as a nostalgic look back, but rather a way to move forward. After all, if it happened before, it can happen again.”
PUNK: Attitude was officially released April 25, 2005 at the Tribeca Film Festival and later aired to critical acclaim on IFC. The DVD-set has long been out of print.

THE BONES BRIGADE DOCUMENTARY
Stacy, Rodney, CAB, Tony, MIke, Lance and Tommy will be working on a Bones Brigade Documentary starting in February 2011.
On Monday, November 29th at Los Angeles International Airport, seven individuals that have had an extreme influence on skateboarding sat down to discuss work on a documentary of their experience. They met at the Encounter restaurant in the middle of the airport to begin work on this monumental film.
Stacy wrote, “Those skaters known as the Bones Brigade are now old enough to take a look back. At a time in the 80′s when many people were mourning the second death of skateboarding, the Bones Brigade through passion, drive, creativity and a surprising sense of teamwork redefined the sport for their time and the future”.
Documentary filmmaker, Stacy Peralta in a new film with Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Steve Caballero, Mike McGill, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero and others will investigate the history, the team and the men to determine what is the legacy of the Bones Brigade. “Five years ago the guys got together and told me they wanted to do this. They believed they had a significant story others would want to know about. So now we’re going to see.”
Simultaneously, a Powell-Peralta coffee table book is in the works. It will include the Bones Brigade, but also other things you knew and didn’t know about Powell-Peralta.
BILLABONG COLLABORATES WITH THE HOUSE OF MARLEY
The Billabong X Bob Marley Collection
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 30 November, 2010 : – - Hossegor — Billabong is proud to announce The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection, a collaboration with the House of Marley. Why did we collaborate with the House of Marley? Because we believe in Bob Marley’s vision of “one world, one love.”
Bob Marley is a musical prophet, whose words and vision forever changed the world. His image evokes a rich legacy and emotional connection that transcend generation, ethnicity, gender and geopgraphy. His voice touches, inpsires and moves. He is a phenomenon merging myth, man, musical genius, social awareness, and cultural relevance into a way of life embraced universally.
Billabong is committed to the development of earth-friendly, innovative products that adhere to the Marley family’s core values: Equality, authenticity, and sustainability. Or as Bob might put it: “Make way for the positive day.”
Consisting of boardshorts, tee shirts, tank tops, and selected accessories, the line reflects the energy, passion and fun that infused Marley’s life. The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection is using premium recycled and organic materials : organic cotton, PET
“I love it! The collection is cool and conscious,” said Ziggy Marley, when asked about his feeling on the environmental sensitivity Billabong has taken care to use in The Billabong x Bob Marley Collection.
“Working with the Marley family to interpret their vision of their father on to our garments has been inspiring,” notes Billabong US Design Director Rob McCarty. “Cedella and Ziggy have provided great insight to make this collaboration a success.”
