The LB Project is a European art project through skateboarding. Sharing skills, ideas and a love for helping each other, the project was created to bring people together for a good cause. With help from Michael Sieben, Todd Bratrud, Jeremy Fish, Fos, Jeremyville, Kid Creature, French, Mike Kershnar, Chad Eaton, and BB Bastidas, each artist hand painted on blank skateboards to support Skateistan. Half of the boards were offered to Internet users via the-lbproject.com and the other half were donated.

Today, we follow Shawna X has she travels to White Sands National Monument in New Mexico.

We wanted to make a film that wasn’t about watching sex, but instead, triggered memories of the way you felt when emotionally surrendered with a partner. That moment where you let go of judgment or self-consciousness and just open yourself up to impulse and desire.

Because I still have the intense memories of seeing the original and always-will-be-the-best "Jurassic Park" in a movie theater, I probably will be a little disappointed by the new installment of the Park legacy that opens this Friday, "Jurassic World." But I will be there regardless. There is a ton of Jurassic stuff on the web right now, and we love this 8-bit, Nintendo vibe'd version of "Jurassic Park" that we watched this morning.
