Hailing from the odd axis of non-evil of Colorado and Brazil, For Fun Zine celebrates its entry into the wonderful world of double digits with issue number 10. And another jam-packed issue it is. Well, it's not packed full of actual jam, just words, photos and graphics. Maybe a PBJ should come with each copy of the next issue.

The table of contents this time out includes articles on the Fossil Creek 2005 contest, Colorado Skate University (regarding the campus being a bust) and young Brazilian skaters, plus an ambitious lil' timeline on the entire history of skateboarding called The Evolution, a "how-to" on spot improvement, a trick tip on the jungle pop, a video review of a local Colorado video called Sons of Longmont, a photo gallery, a profile on Brazilian band the Violentures, and last but not least, an informative little piece on glass blowing.

First but also not least, the cover photo caption claims a rocket air down seven by Adam Yee, but both of your feet need to be on the tail, son! Otherwise, it's just a double-grab.

Get ready to scroll your ass off, hunt for elusive links and click on numerous non-descript or downright cryptic words and images on this unconventional fan site for legendary Blind skater Guy Mariano.

Some highlights on this difficult-to-navigate but fun site include the Firewood section, which features vintage deck collections from the early '90s to the early 2000s; and 37th Chamber, which is a huge collection of video clips of Guy himself, plus Pat Brennen, Kareem Campbell, Brian Lotti, Pepe Martinez, Kennan Milton, Sean Sheffey, Stevie Williams and many more. If you grew up in the '90s, this site's for Bud, I mean you.
