The road to success is always under construction. That's the Torment of it all. Another week, let's get into it.

Torment Weather Report: The annular solar eclipse, which occurred as the moon was near its furthest point from Earth, went down this past Saturday. The moon was perfectly positioned between Earth and the sun, and depending where you were, it allowed for some crazy photos of the "ring of fire".

Seems like that was only an appetizer though. In six months, April 8th to be exact, we'll get a total solar eclipse, which only occurs when the moon completely covers the face of the sun. Prices for solar eclipse glasses are sure to skyrocket, same with flights to locations in the path of totality.

The glory days of Loon Parks may seem like a distant memory, but they're still here in some way, shape, or form. You just gotta know where to look. If you landed on Ian Dreher's YouTube channel, then you looked in the right place.

Danger Beach — In the Bosom featuring a few who paved the path. Cole St. Martin, Tyler L'heureux, Ian Dreher, Travis Neuenhaus, Gabe ChuckNasty, Christian Bulling, and Ian Dreher.

Grenade Gloves transitioning into a new vertical?

A quick Google search and it's clear that that's not the case. Looks like someone bought Grenade's domain and turned it into a snowboard gear review site.

"Our crew came out with another video this year all filmed in Minneapolis/Saint Paul. I think we are the only crew that filmed 2 full videos in high school hahaha." 

Walker Netland just came out with a follow up to his first street project, TRIAL & ERROR. Futures bright in Minnesota.

It's always been on the back of our minds, but Speakeasy teamed up with 18 smooth 18 to make it happen.

Their latest video, Glass Half Empty, is a joint effort that left us wanting to go back to Chicago—specifically Field Museum.

Great video, don't skip the outro section.
