If you had suggested that one day, His Royal Highness Prince Jigyel Ugyen Wangchuck of Bhutan would be a reader of @whalebonemagazine we wouldn’t have believed a word out of your lying cockamamie mouth. For that, we would like to apologize. We would then like to thank our friend, and founder of @hanahliving, Joel Einhorn for recently interviewing HRH for Whalebone Magazine and proving us wrong on our inability to be surprised. Turns out, the happiest place on earth really might be the happiest place on earth. Let’s book some tickets. Full Interview is now playing on the site. Remind us to listen to you next time.

“Yes, money has been a little tight lately. But, at the end of my life, when I’m sitting on my yacht, am I gonna be thinking about how much money I have? No. I’m going to be thinking about how many friends I have, and my children, and my comedy albums. I mean, I have a yacht, so I obviously did pretty well money-wise.” - Michael Scott

“Reminds me of Montauk”, a feature we’re currently putting together for the upcoming Travel Issue presented by @tumitravel where we take a look at several small towns from around the world that all carry a little bit of the East End magic. So far no sign of an exact replica of @liarssaloon but we’ll visit every damn bar on this planet if that’s what it takes

We asked @kellyslater if he would interview one person he admires for the Interview Issue of @whalebonemagazine. He stared off into the distance, hummed what we thought was the opening song from Caddyshack, then softly nodded his head in agreement, stood up, and silently walked out of our offices on the 108th floor of the Empire Stare Building. This was months ago. Little did we know when he returned the assignment, we would be greeted with a conversation that includes: how to pay $28 for something that could run you $1,000,000,000 in the open market, how a guy named Brad totally fucked up by ordering a $5,000 door, then totally redeemed himself, and other highly valuable information that will likely keep you alive and healthy for a few more years. Solid work, Mr. Slater. A+. We’re privileged to share the @kellyslater x @khalilrafati interview now running on whalebonemag.com. Blue link is doubling as an express elevator
@stevenlippman takes pretty great photos. Lippy is also involved with one of our favorite organizations, @awalkonwater. Like the guy doesn’t have enough on his plate already, but when we gave him a call, Steven took the time to be involved in the Interview Issue of Whalebone Magazine. Read a good conversation about things like: humble beginnings, cooking for Elvis and Andy Irons, and surfing 50-foot waves for prizes like coconuts and sardines, all of this is part of the interview @stevenlippman did with @happyreef76 for the Interview Issue. Thank you, Steven, Reef, and @aulta_surf for bringing this one to life.
We asked the rather brilliant photo editor over at @cntraveler to collaborate on an upcoming feature in the Travel Issue of Whalebone. She said yes, which was pretty cool, and now we’re pouring through images from six of the better photogs that own a passport. The Travel Issue is in rehearsal mode. Full band hits the stage sometime next month. Surprise guests galore

You can’t get the Friday morning newsletter from @whalebonemagazine on Wednesday mornings. It’s the Friday morning newsletter, don’t be silly. It comes straight from our bleeding hearts to your inbox filled with things like: introductions to some good people we admire, productive things to do with your hands, songs your grandkids will like, the secret to life, places you should really stop putting off and visit, badass chocolate chip cookie recipes, and other things you might or might not enjoy. This photo is from @m__g__v who was a previous guest of the Friday morning newsletter. It’s only Tuesday but blue link is doing what blue links are suppose to do and offering ways to get involved.
@shaunwhite sat down with @whalebonemagazine and we talked about things like; his experience with surfing in New York, the legacy of @kellyslater, where to find the best fire places in the world, and giving bad investment advice to his 15-year-old self. Somebody get this guy a towel. Full interview is up on the site or the good old, trustworthy blue link is offering teleportation.

No one really wanted to call it the “Not Sitting On Your Couch Issue” anyway. @whalebonemagazine crew is building a giant sandcastle. And of course by giant sandcastle we mean a Travel Issue that we think you’ll enjoy with or without a tiny little umbrella drink. Comes out sometime in March
“I’ve never watched the game on television, I've had one of the most unique experiences in sports.” - words from legendary photographer @walteriooss who has shot every single Super Bowl game. “The first game had a very sterile atmosphere. It wasn’t a very good game. There were a lot of empty seats – the stadium was really too big.” Though the game fell flat, Iooss and fellow Sports Illustrated photographer Neil Leifer had the luxury of chartering two Learjets from Los Angeles to New York to transport the film back to the office to meet deadline. “That’s one of my finest memories,” he adds. “Two men, a lot of film and champagne on board.”
