D-Face London Project

Found this piece on the supertouch blog , as good as the 5m high clash can. Seems that installation art is making a bit of a comeback, mainly in the guerilla type but with the can and this piece i think you will see more of it appear on your streets, just watch out for it, as it doesnt get advertised.

The cycle of collecting...

As some of you may (or may not) be aware my urban vinyl collection is going through a mass cull This week. This is mainly due to two things, a lack of space and hankering for some new musical equipment. The end result is that 90%...or maybe more of my collection will be sold on the Kid Robot forums and eventually ebay . It's pretty cleansing to be taking my horde down to a manageable amount, and I'll still be picking tings up, I'm just going to be a little more selective. My previous approach was like an avalanche , careering forwards consuming all in it's path. Now I'll be more focused. In the last couple of days I've sold around £2k worth an I've just put up another batch today. I'd better go, I think a 1960s fender Twin Reverb amp is calling my name.... :D

Kaws Stormtroopers Report For Duty

Was surfing today and came across these amazing Kaws figures at the supertouch blog , what i wouldnt pay for a set of these bad boys, must be the best set of Star Wars figures ever. Stepping up this fall to provide KAWS ‘ signature Darth Vader figure with some much-needed bodyguarding are the Original Faker’s new XX-eyed STORMTROOPERS, produced in limited edition by Japanese toy masters MEDICOM TOY. We don’t have to tell you how fast these mindless terror drones are going to move, and one thing’s for sure, they look even better as an army. If only they were life-sized…

30mm Paint Pen tutorial

Hi guys, this week I'll be showing you the 30mm Monstercolors Paint marker . The pen comes in a wide range of colours and as always available at Fat Buddha . The marker above is a light blue, so its better for darker surfaces. Like the 15mm when you buy the pen there is no paint in the nib, you need to remove the lid, pump the nib until the paint start to seep through the felt, then its ready to write. The major difference between the 15mm and the 30mm is clear, the size of the nib, this means the 30mm will take a bit longer to fill the nib as it needs a bit more paint. If you remove the top, inside you will see cotton wool, this was added to make the marker drip less. If you remove this your marker will be more drippy, if your markers too messy for your liking add more cotton wool or pump the nib less. The 30mm is a great pen that covers brilliantly. The 15mm and 30mm pens are a pair and are a great price. thanks for reading, C alum .

Death by longboard

There's been a lot buzzing about my head this week: a lot of which I actually thought might be verging on the interesting, even maybe interesting enough to put up here. But it was all overtaken when my friend, the technowizard Graeme West , sent me this video-Adam Kimmel Presents Claremont in HD. This is a longboarding video from Claremont in California and probably belongs in the fruitbat department of the local nuthouse. Utterly insane, very long and one of the most two-fingers-up-to-impending-death stunts I've ever seen. Enjoy Till laters, ciao, Mark

Guess Who got Married

Yup, oops i did it again, married my Irish girlfriend, shes the new Mrs Docherty, she must have done spomething really bad in a past life to get stuck with me for life, well to be fair 70% of marriages end in divorce so if shes lucky she'll get par9ole and be out in 5 years, ha. Wedding was in Quesada (espanol) and was attended by the whole Docherty clan, below are some photos, of Siobhan (gorgeous), my daughter Lhanna and my youngest nephew Calvin, getting taught how to be superman. So, to pay for the honeymoon, id appreciate it if you visited and spent a shit load of money, thanks in advance.

Paint Pen Tutorial

Hi guys, this is the first ever tutorial for the fat buddha graffiti supplies . This week I'll be showing you how to use the 15mm paint marker from Monstercolours. Fat Buddha stocks a wide range of colours, and the monster colours markers are also available in 30mm and with ink, instead of paint. The Marker above is a dark blue, When you buy it in the shop the paint is in the chamber but not yet ready to use. To start the paint flowing you have to remove the lid, turn the pen upside down and pump the nib in and out uptill the tip is flooded with paint. Once the nib is full of paint your ready to write. The more you pump the nib the more the paint will flow so if you want a drippy tag press-down and write, but if you prefere a cleaner tag fill the nib once and write without pressing down. The nib itself is chisle shaped, this means that you lines are fat one way but thinner the other. The nib is also re-placeable if it gets damaged, but the pen should write on most surfaces. The


Recently, while trying to put my life and university dissertation in permanent procrastination mode, I started watching some of my favourite skate videos of yore on youtube . Skating in the last few years has seemed to me like it's changed for the worse. I find it increasingly difficult to keep up with the overexposure of every new "star" i.e. eleven year old who snapped a tre over the Carlsbad with no style and has burned out a month after his first video part came out. Events seem a lot more corporate based and coverage is definitely on the decline. Even the filming doesn't seem quite as tight, all Atiba rip offs and no individuals like the late Trevor Prescott. Still, thought I'd put up some of my personal favourite riders-a lot are a little more offbeat. This best of Jason Adams compilation is mostly taken from his seminal Black Label, "Label Kills" video part, with a little from "Blackout". In "Label Kills", this was the openi

It's in the game!!

Or so Electronic Arts would like you to believe but sadly the truth is getting farther and farther away from that statement in modern gaming. I fall into the core age bracket for videogamers and I've been into gaming for a looong time. On the older consoles, PS2 and Xbox etc you'd buy your game for £25-£40 and you'd be ready to rock. If you did well in the game you'd unlock other things, characters, in-game items or modes. Nowadays you don't get that value, in fact you just might get double shafted. Most games cost between £40 and £50 and when you get to the end of the game you can... well you can play it again or if you want some new gameplay elements you can download extra downloadable content (DLC) but most of the time that comes at a price. EA ("It's in the game" is their slogan) have been charging gamers for crazy stuff, uniforms in Madden NFL, game modes etc basically all the extra stuff that we as gamers are used to getting for free.

Musical Express

Came across these Youtube videos when checking out the blog of Focus Skate store in Glasgow & Edinburgh, so thanks to these guys for finding these gem. The Glasgow Diamonds one goes back to 1986 and has become a bit of an internet hit, quite rightly so.

Fat Buddha Sketch Battle 22

Winner of the 22nd Fat Buddha Sketh Battle was Snackrite with the above entry, good entry, the runners up were duppy and kreature, check out both of them below for their good entries. The sketch battle is available to enter on the Duncan Cumming Website , but be warned, last weeks sketch battle descended as usual into a useless dialogue where 13 yr old kids were getting all gangstarr on each other, read the thread here and marvel at how they managed to ruin a good threa again, this week only 5 people voted, i do hope things get back to normal again. But just remember, this is advice ive been given, dont bad mouth folk on a forum, as you don't know when you are going to bump into them in the street.

All for you

Travel is great, get to fly to all manner of cool exotic places, been to Hong Kong, Bangkok, Vegas, London & Hamburg, this time it was the home of Black Sabbath and Saxon the brummie rockers. Birmingham is the conference capital of England, and to this fine city me and Gill my sis went, Autumn fair had got us down there. Flying down on monday morn was a relief as last time we took a 5hr car journey which was long and crap, even better since the flights only cost £85 for 2 returns. Show was average, best thing we seen was the floodlight, a table lamp with 6 bulbs, it will be avialable in November and the best bit is it only costs £60, we have ordered 6 of them so dont take to long as i reckon they wont last long. Also check out the gun lamp, only £25, as is the robot lamp below, all due in the same time. After the show, whats a guy to do, few pints of stella a great indian curry and a few bottles of wine, slept like a baby that night for sure. Fat Buddhas other owner is the fave si
