In Memory of Wes Schuck: A Family Man, Mentor and Enthusiastic Dreamer

Wes Schuck was a dear friend and mentor. The publisher of Slanted Magazine SMAC owes much credit to Schuck. The original plan was to revive Static Magazine, but Wes became ill with cancer and wanted to move ahead with his dream of producing films. Slanted Mag is truly grateful to have evolved the magazine from the direction and vision that Schuck had as a young man living in Mankato and operating Two Fish Studios, a recording studio business. Schuck lived a full life, promoting music and later working on independent film projects.

Song of the Week: Joey Bones

This week's song comes from Mankato hip hop artist and Wu-Tang era inspired freestyler Joey Bones. Bones is starting to promote himself on Twitter and has recently debuted a music video filmed in Mankato by local filmmaker, Brian Faerber. See the video for Fingertips of God. This week's song pick was decidedly instrumental to showcase Bones' producer skills. It looks like Bones is versatile, not simply a rapper.
