WEEEEEELL, WE’RE WAITING…

We’re not keeping our fingers crossed, holding our breath, rubbing Buddah’s belly, or doing anything else that might help prove true the outrageous swell predictions slated for Southern California. 28-feet? For really reals? But just in case, we just bought ourselves a new E Bomb and doubled checked that we have two sick days left before the new year. Surfline and The OC Register have more.

SPY OPTIC CONTEST: WHO IS ELIZA?

Who the hell does that girl think she is? Spy Optic wants to know. Calling all stylish, tragically hip, outside-the-boxers: Your mission is to describe who the “real” Eliza is. Where does she hang? What’s the decor of her myspace page? Is she obsessed with Perez or does she manage her own hot gossip site? Is she textually active? Answer correctly, and most importantly, creatively, and you could win four pairs of the Eliza shades, a $100 shopping spree here at Swell, a year’s subscription to FOAM Magazine, and head-to-toe outfits from both Matix and DC.

CAN YOU SMELL WHAT THE RAWK’S BEEN COOKING?

If you were too young (or not even born) the first time punk ruled the scene, you can take heart in knowing that what goes around comes back around. Like most uber hot trends it takes 20 to 25 years to completely recycle, which means punk rawk is right on schedule. The Smell has known this for quite some time, and it seems the rest of the world is beginning to take notice of this little DIY club that could. Situated in dirty downtown Hell A in a former Mexican grocery store, the club’s house band No Age is credited with being the catalyst that set the neo-punk rage in motion.
