We live in a “cut and paste” world. And despite the trend, we manage to keep running out the door and into the wild, meeting it all head on instead of repackaging what was already there. We’re making more new. And it turns out making more new is not easy. It forces you to confront friction and frustration head on, tip your hat and keep fucking going. And right now, today, in a world that finds more and more ways to be fleeting, low-brow and gossip-driven, we are pretty happy to deliver this brick of whatever the hell we want to your coffee table. To your mind. To your world. To your actual mailbox.
There are personalities in here that you know. Some you don’t. Lots you should. And there are countries and cities and road trips and conversations throughout. And enough visual and mental stimuli to keep you pondering the breakdance of life for at least a few months — until we get to the next one. So here it is, starring so many talented, creative minds and bodies doing all sorts of stuff. What Youth Issue 14: it’s a real thing. We hope you’ll have one.—Travis
