Summer is over, deal with it. Embrace the cold wind, for with it comes atmospheric music, red leaves and a new winter wardrobe. Here's the best from the rest...

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eaves run;
To bend with apples the mossed cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For Summer has o'erbrimmed their clammy cells.

Well that’s what Keats had to say, Summer is indeed over and autumn has come. There is no need to be sad though, there is plenty of fruitful goodness still to be had… Here’s the best from the rest.

Here at Organic we like skateboarding, and you can regularly find us nursing our wounds at the bottom of the bowl. As far as we’re concerned if you don’t wear Vans, ride Indy’s or have an 8.5 deck, you ain’t got shit… If you hold similarly staunch views then you will obviously follow core skate mag Thrasher… Over at Thrasher it’s all kicking off with the annual King Of the Road comp.
