Dog Days of Summer

So, I've been applying to new jobs like crazy in an attempt to find something better for myself. Low and behold, something found me. Something I never thought I'd actually be doing, but I'm game for anything. Starting next week I'll be a sheet metal worker. It's a lot less of a commute (about 40 minutes closer), and after the first year it'll be better money than I'm currently making too. Also, I'll be working four 10 hour shifts rather than the five 8 hour shifts I'm currently working. But with the good comes the bad. It seems to be causing more stress in my home life (and I haven't even started the new job yet) so I'm really hoping in a week or two everything is ironed out and running smoothly. My wife's helping make this job possible for me so I have her to thank for a lot. 

Because of the pay cut I'll be taking for the first year at this new job it looks like any new snowboarding gear (and in turn, reviews) will be put on the back burner for sure. But it's only for a year so I'm fine with that. I'm excited to be starting something new, interesting, and better for me and my family.

I don't even know...

I don't even know what I'm doing with this zine right now. No content has been presenting itself to me so I've been posting screen caps from digital comics that I find interesting. I haven't had a whole lot of time to devote to this zine in all honesty. About a month ago my 2 year old Lily suffered a seizure that completely scared the holy hell out of myself and my wife (and pretty much everyone else who knows us). She's doing fine now, but still...scary stuff. I have a preview of the new DinosaursWillDie boards for this coming season, just need to get the okay to post it from DWD. I'm assuming I'm not going to be doing any gear reviews this coming year unless some good fortune comes my way. So yeah. That's where Seasons is right now. Maybe some gear previews. I'll shoot for an interview or two if I can. And, comicbook screen caps. FUN!

This flame is located at a mill in the town I live in. My 5 year old daughter is enthralled with it. Every morning I drive her to kindergarten and she asks questions about it. When she's in our back yard jumping on the trampoline, she can see it when she's up in the air. Last night I brought her down into town so she could see it close up. She was a little scared of it at first but after a few moments she just stared at it in awe.
