WART


WART

I always loved drawing, since my early childhood, it was something I felt comfortable with. After secondary school I would have liked to pursue my education to transform this pleasure in a profession in art. But since my grades permitted it, I let my weak and confused mind be molded by the career consultant who strongly suggested and finally persuaded me to go to the lyceum by disqualifying the artist lifestyle, and this without ever having seen any of my drawings. I’ve often regretted this decision, and even today I can’t stand it when somebody tries to condition the life and decisions of others out of personal motives. Everybody has to find their own path, and I don’t believe there is any objectively right one. Climbing the social ladder has never interested me in the least, and the difficulty of finding a job even less. The most important is to be happy with little and do with passion whatever you’re doing. Therefore, on the one hand I’m even glad not to have mixed passion with professionalism: I prefer to draw for myself, when I feel like it, how and what I like. I think that often when you start working on something on request by others, you lose the essence of what is the expression of yourself, of your own experiences, and for me drawing is nothing else but the exploration of oneself. I started drawing again three years ago when I couldn’t concentrate at school: I


WART

was sleeping or disturbing – or I went for a walk. Drawing made the time pass faster, and this allowed my old passion resurface. I had a pile of old fax paper at home, and I was beginning to think of a design for the Warriors. My drawings don’t have a professional look, they are smudged, often inexact. I don’t use a particular technique (also because I don’t know them). It happens that I have to cut the sheet and stick it together again because of errors that cannot be corrected, I mix the tools for what I can do spontaneously. The hand certainly gets better with practice, but that’s not the reason I like drawing. The end effect is not what I’m looking for, it happens that I stay bent on the same sheet for months, hoping to be finished soon, but when it is finished at last I feel sad, like when after a stupendous trip you find yourself back home. I don’t put much weight on the end effect, it is the process that’s more important, Usually I start out with a general idea which then keeps getting cut up a hundred times during the creative process. Everything I draw has a meaning, and I seek to cut and paste the sheet in a reflected but, at the same time, sensitive manner, this is what I like best. Today I like drawing because it transports me to a separate world (my own) where the time passes on a different rhythm, perfectly adapted to my requirements; reflections and emotions blend and flow onto the sheet. The interesting part, what


WART

made me mature and still today helps me remain in balance like a session with a psychologist, is that my preferred subjects are not always pleasant, the emotions rather negative and very intensive, but they are transferred to paper with calmness and serenity, even if at times the tension and energy inside me cause the stroke of the pen to punch the paper. It is as if there was this huge flood inside me to which I have to give space and order to release it drop by drop. In the last years of my studies in social work my mind had a thousand questions to which it found answers that were different than those given by most; answers not always socially accepted, and which caused me to live many aspects of life in a painful way. The neurotic mode I have to connect with what is around me caused me to systematically be confronted with lasting frustrations and disappointments that risk to turn into obsessions. In the course of these years I realized that the number one social misfit that’s me, and perhaps it is no coincidence that I ended up with a career in education: often one chooses, even if unconsciously, to heal oneself. It is not by accident that my preferred subjects are about people. Drawing, in part, helps me not to turn my pains and those that others pass on to me and I am expected to endure into pathology or real action. “Who knows what one tries to liberate the trust in ones owns temptations, removing the intruders from ones own emotions” (De André, La bomba nella testa)


WART

But really doing it, in a sense is not working. Actually opening the doors to hatred doesn’t lead anywhere except to more hatred, transforming it into stupendous and destructive acts. We are not free to let ourselves go, we are emotionally impotent because there are too many regulations and enforced structures. But hatred, when it enters it has to find an outlet, otherwise it corrodes, and pouring it on a blank paper, on this void to be filled without any rules or obligations, and not on persons or institutions, helps me keep my mental set-up in balance, it calms and organizes my temptations and emotions to leave room to accept and concentrate on the positive part present inside and around me. Fortunately I have not learned the rules of the paper, or else drawing would have a completely different function. The spontaneity, intensity and sincerity I find in those moments when I’m drawing – it would be nice to experience these in other contexts, to feel free to let go, to break the routine might be one of those aspects we all ought to endeavor to achieve. Routine certainly gives security and makes us feel more adequate, especially when we reflect ourselves in them. But we are not perfect, and locking ourselves in a cage causes us to move away from ourselves until we get lost in what certainly has been imprinted on us as correct. I am convinced more and more firmly that we in our singularity and uniqueness who need to emerge in everything we decide to do, Asking ourselves with respect to everything we do, what did I put into it of myself, with feeling and honesty? Because this is the added value we can give to our work, professional or not, drawing or other.


WART


When man decided to become a blockhead, the essence of his existence passed into the hands of what twinkles in his spent eyes. Recover your true nature, take back your life. If you can put it in a drawing it’s even better. When we are born we learn to remain in the world by observation and imitation of the behavior of others and by making sense of what we get from descriptions by our parents or other persons we are in contact with. The process of socialization teaches us to behave according to what we see or what we are told, thus we internalize a whole set of rules and social behavior apt to guarantee good living together insofar as our acts, ideas and behavior are recognized by the collective. When this is not the case, the individual is stamped as misfit, criminal, mentally sick or some other kind of label. Information and advertising make nothing else but extend this discourse. We are convinced that by reading the newspaper and watching television we find a description of all the facts, when in reality these moments are being construed, we are being manipulated. Much comportment would never be performed if it were not systematically proposed. “The utopia of equality today is actuated by means of television”, but not just tv “it is their means of representation. From the way we eat to how we dress, live and communicate … in thirty seconds it is possible to buy an escape from a travel agency, sex from a perfume shop, a slim body from a shop selling cream cheese, health from bottled mineral water … Today the world happens because we communicate or the communicating world is the only one we live in” (Umberto Galimberti, Parole nomadi) We need to ask ourselves what power those have in whose hands the management of communication lies … do we want to go on having our existence chiseled away?


WART

Globalization is nothing but the (rather successful) attempt to infect the entire mankind with the tendency to shift the multitude of values, justice, truth and freedom to the United Nations. This UN is the West, which draws all the profits of a world that unites the differences but at the same time denies these not just between peoples and civilizations but also between individuals. People are no longer equal albeit different. Preferably, in a globalized world pretending to function not in order to maintain the system and its own functioning but for the involved individuals, it might be assumed at least that in spite of the differences – which are wealth – each person should be valued in the same way. Obviously the differences and the singularity become problem, threat, disease, or crime only if they are inserted in a system that is unable to absorb them, where more than one justice system means anarchy, and anarchy is considered negative, even if none of us ever had the opportunity to actually live it. It is dangerous to believe that there is only one correct way to spend one’s life, the personality disappears to transform into a parasite, as functional as possible for the system from which he will get the impression to be the more recognized the more he sucks up to it. Marx wrote “The work of others is exploited imposing the surrender of all the values of life.” Many of us suck from the shoulders of others like bloodthirsty ticks, others get dehydrated because they are unable or unwilling to suck the life out of others, like ticks out of place and bound to die, but the system doesn’t care who is better at sucking, all are part of the same sadistic game and all, sooner or later, may be thrown up by the sick part of the UN.

Last March the Rolling Rock Shop in Aarau held the inauguration of its new miniramp. By having the benefit of running its own skate park, the shop has the opportunity of being really close to the scene. On top, two of Switzerland‘s finest skateboarders Sqipron Bobaj and Henrique Gonçalves - work there and take care that the young skaters have a proper spot to hang out. Curiously though, it is not only a skaters place, but also one of the last refuges for bladers in Switzerland... Yes, they actually still exist, and people peacefully coexist there. The only negative aspect is that the skatepark is actually more of a blader park and therefore not laid out for modern skateboarding. So far the locals would

find a warm place in the winter, but as soon as the temperatures ro se,  they’d immediately hit the streets. One could argue that becaus of this the Aarauians have such a strong street scene and are barel able to skate a tranny. Until now... Last winter the Rolling Rock made an effort to tear down the old vert which wasted much of the space and to rebuild it into a proper miniramp. Wide enough and equipped with a few specials like two nar row extensions and a channel to bank, it was the perfect setting for the first good Miniramp Contest of the year.

70’s: DUEL

Duel is a 1971 television film about a terrified motorist on a remote and lonely road being chased and stalked by a huge tanker truck and its unseen, psychotic driver. This was the first film directed by Spielberg and it’s pretty much 60 and plus minutes of chasing, action and paranoia. No one ever did anything like that before. FEAR THE RAOD EVIL!!

80’s: THE BREACKFAST CLUB

The Breakfast Club is a 1985 American teen drama directed by John Hughes. Five high school students, all different stereotypes, meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought.This movie is one of the best, if not THE best, 80’s film there is. You start to watch it thinking is an easy comedy and you end up feeling both happy and sad and in love with each one of the characters.

BRAKE THE RULES!!


SCI FI: SILENT RUNNING

Silent Running is a 1972 environmentally themed science fiction film directed by Douglas Trumbull. Back on earth, all the trees have long vanished so some astronauts works in giant space greenhouses where they take care of plants. When orders from earth are received to destroy the greenhouses, one of the spacemans kills every one and continue his trip alone till the end of space. This film is about isolation, alienation, lost causes, and the inevitable future and makes you think long after is over. SAVE THE NATURE!!

HORROR: UZUMAKI

Uzumaki is a Japanese horror film directed by Higuchinsky. In a small town in Japan a man obsession with spirals becomes more and more bizarre, ending in his suicide in a washing machine which turn his body into a spiral. Soon other inhabitants become possesed with different forms of spirals and the entire town becomes possesed by spirals and they all die. This film is bizarre, wonderfully photographed and the use of colors is so original. Some areas of the screen are digitally twisted into a spiral pattern in some moments of the film. DRAG ME DOWN!


THOP DVD

MONSTER: THE CALL OF CTHULHU

The Call of Cthulhu is a 2005 silent film adaptation of the H. P. Lovecraft most famous short story, distributed by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society. It’s the first film adaptation and uses Mythoscope, a blend of vintage and modern filming techniques intended to produce the look of a 1920s-era film. Only 47 minutes to bring you back to the ‘20s and if you never did it, make you want to start to read every book of Lovecraft, the best horror writer of all times. I HEAR THE CALL!!

DOCUMENTARY: ANVIL

Anvil! The Story of Anvil is a 2008 documentary film directed by screenwriter Sacha Gervasi, about the Canadian heavy metal band, Anvil. At 14, best friends Robb Reiner and Lips made a pact to rock together forever. Their band influenced bands as Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, despite never hitting the big time. Following a calamitous European tour, Lips and Robb, now in their fifties, set off to record their 13th album in one last attempt to fulfill their boyhood dreams. This movie it’s so funny and emotional and by the end it has drawn you in and made you a part of the band’s struggles. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!

CULT: BRAZIL

Brazil is a 1985 British science fiction fantasy/black comedy film directed by Terry Gilliam. The film centres on Sam Lowry, a man trying to find a woman who appears in his dreams while he is working in a mindnumbing job and living a life in a small apartment, set in a dystopian world in which there is an over-reliance on poorly maintained (and rather whimsical) machines. This was one of the most unforgettable movie experiences of my life. Please don’t look any trailer, just buy the dvd and start watch this bizarre, funny, scary and disturbing piece of art. FLY WITH ME!

EROTIC: FASTER, PUSSYCAT! KILL! KILL!

Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! is a 1965 exploitation film directed by Russ Meyer. Three strippers seeking thrills encounter a young couple in the desert. After dispatching the boyfriend, they take the girl hostage and begin scheming on a crippled old man living with his two sons in the desert, reputedly hiding a tidy sum of cash. They become houseguests of the old man and try and seduce the sons in an attempt to locate the money, not realizing that the old man has a few sinister intentions of his own. Absolutely essential viewing for anyone who loves exploitation movies, The Sixties, rock’n’roll and/or buxom babes! KILL KILL TURA SATANA!

CLASSIC: THE ELEPHANT MAN

The Elephant Man is a 1980 American drama film directed by David Lynch. A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man who is mistreated while scraping a living as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous facade, there is revealed a person of intelligence and sensitivity. Based on the true story of Joseph Merrick this film is a masterpiece that moves you and hopefully teaches you some respect for people. One of the best films of Lynch (and the others are almost all masterpieces..) BEAUTIFUL.

MASTERPIECE: BLACK SWAN

Black Swan is a 2010 American psychological thriller film directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Natalie Portman. A ballet dancer wins the lead in “Swan Lake” and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan. I saw this film in a small cinema in Berlin at midnight with only some friends. I always loved Aronofsky but this is the ultimate masterpiece. It build up the same agony feeling of his previous “requiem for a dream” but it ends in a perfect romantic dark way. I was speachless for almost 20 minutes after the film and then i declared: BEST FILM OF THE LAST 10 YEARS.

Some things happen for

a reason

Almost 15 years ago I was in my room, pre tending to study math but actually drawin g some sketches for the new name our crew had shortly tak en on. So I started to draw a big W. Af ter I finished it I sta rted reading a rock magazine of my father and one of the ads was about some kind of heavy me tal band and it had the se hard pointed edges at the beginning and the end of its logo. I thought it would be rad to put some of those at the sides of the W to make it more metal! So I did. Then I lef t my room to get something to eat. When I came back I no ticed that the W together with those ed ges reminded me of so mething… The BAT logo was there! It was perfect just as it wa s and it never has been modified sin ce then. Today it is the most important piece of our crew and brand, and it’s on the sk in of more than 30 people - forever! We started to call each other Warriors without a precise reason. But it’s kinda strange ho w that defined who we are as people. The whole Warriors fam ily and the team, two ge nerations of friends, are real warrio rs. They’re loyal, true, straightforward, fighter people. They are my friends. If they ha ve to tell me I suck, they’ll do it. But that makes me do my wo rk as good as I can, cause even tho ugh I hate it when the y tel l me that I’m doing something wron g at the moment, in the end it’s the only way I’ll understand an d will try to make it be tter. That’s the reason why Warriors Skateboards is still ali ve and growing. There is a histor y behin d us. There is passion. There are friends telling me that I suck . We are not producing Warriors Skate boards products... WE ARE WARRIORS

SK ATEBOARDS.
