Get the scoop on the duo’s first street snowboarding film. Due to travel restrictions and contest cancellations, Luke Winkelmann found himself with some unexpected downtime this past February, in the heart of his snowboarding season. Used to constantly lapping slopestyle courses around the globe, he is not one for sitting at home. To stay sharp going into a massive Winter Games qualifying year, Luke linked up with his longtime friend and filmer, Drew Hastings, to check off a goal that has been on both of their lists for as long as they can remember: making a movie.
Huge eagle with a 10ft wingspan soared over New Zealand 800 years ago and feasted like a VULTURE, slashing into its prey’s carcass and inserting its head before devouring the internal organs, study reveals
With a 10-foot (three-metre) wingspan and a four-inch (nine-centimeter) claw, the Haast’s eagle was the largest known eagle in the world when it roamed the skies over New Zealand 800 years ago.

My name is George Malik, and I'm the Malik Report's editor/blogger/poster. I have been blogging about the Red Wings since 2006, when MLive hired me to work their SlapShots blog, and I joined Kukla's Korner in 2011 as The Malik Report. I'm starting The Malik Report as a stand-alone site, hoping that having my readers fund the website is indeed the way to go to build a better community and create better content.

Not MJ, but a disciple of his from North Carolina, Luke Winkelmann looked to spread his wings after racking up a few clips for the Burton One World movie with a project of his own. With Covid putting the contest season on hold, Wink, Judd Henkes, and Drew Hastings finally had some time to draw upon their favorite inspirations and make a street movie. Wingspan is the product. Young riders testing their skills in the streets, and succeeding by the looks of it. The 20 minute movie was filmed in under a month with a majority of the clips coming from Minnesota! Enjoy!
Happy early Thanksgiving, everybody! Since we’re all going to (hopefully) be getting a little extra time off this week for the holiday, I thought it might be nice to look at a recent game that’s all about work. Ok, the connection isn’t perfect, but nevertheless I’ll be reviewing Fantastic Factories, designed by Joseph Z Chen and Justin Faulkner with art by Chen. I was given a copy of the game to review by our friends at Deep Water Games, who publish it alongside Metafactory Games. Veteran board game fans have no doubt hear all about the game. In fact it’s one of those games that you really can’t avoid hearing about in board game spaces for the past two years. The game has been such a success that multiple expansions coming out, with another coming soon! But after all that hype, I decided I wanted to take a look for myself and see if it was worth it.

Having used Kickstarter for most of their earlier games, Stegmaier moved his games to a pure retail focus.
