Interesting news from 1982

I can't believe that this actually happened, and near where my family lived no less. My mom told me that she had taken two Tylenol that morning before she had heard about the poisen pills.

It's a blog off

I've got some behind the scenes footage from this edit right here! Despite me calling dibs on the exclusive right to blog Ryan Reyes, Aric B decided to violate the bloggers code and film him anyway.



Oh well, at least he filmed him slightly better than I did!

God(tim) Save The Label (some money)

I figured a way to save Black Label some money....... kick Adam Alfaro, Chet Childress, and Jason Adams off the team and pay Ryan Reyes a tenth of what they're paying those clowns. He can do all their tricks, and he's one drunken night away from getting God Save the Label tattoo'd on his forehead, so why don't the just get three skaters wrapped up into one devoted devotee!

Ryan Reyes.........

....is visiting, which is always the best. He's supposed to be here for three weeks, but Ryan's never been one to stop by for a quick visit. I would love it if he'd stay forever. I just wish that I had some stairs for him to live under.

I've been saying for a while that Ryan reminds me of a young Greg Piloto, you know, before the shit hit the fan, but no one agreess with me. Here's the proof: without meaning to, Ryan does a perfect Greg face.

This is one of my favorite parts of a movie. I like it because I would love to have enough gusto to do something like this.

The future..........

Someday this picture will be used in a documentary about how famous bloggers Timothy Ward and Wes Baker were at one time good friends, before their Internet fame and fortune tore their friendship apart.

Bloggers helping bloggers.

This guy has a new blog!

Read up

Finally, the story of my blog has been adapted into a book.

You better read it before the movie comes out!

A bit late.........

.... but a few weeks ago, my fish, Chopper, died. I don't know the cause of death......






but I intend to find out.

Deaf ears only please!

"nike will stop at nothing to penetrate every sport, every market, and find ways to sell you a sneaker, a shirt, or a ball."

That was the closing line of a CNBC documentary that I just watched about Nike. They talked a lot about Nike breaking into skateboarding and it made me furious. Skateboarders need to watch out for skateboarding, and the next generation of kids definitely isn't going to do it. Kids today think that Zumiez is a skateshop and the Nike is a skate shoe company.

True Calling

The Vivian Girls show was pretty awesome last night. But what is even more pretty awesome is that I found my true TRUE calling... Concert Photography. I'm going to go get some new business cards made.





Here's a real photo taken from Preston over at Bloggytreats!

Here's some of my other previous works!

The Thermals

A long wind!

I just realized something. Four years ago today is the day that I packed up my car and left home. I had saved up about $3,500 from working all summer at a car dealership, and part time delivering Chinese food. $3,500.... I'm yet to reach anywhere near that amount of money since leaving my comfy home in Geneva, Illinois. I don't remember how I picked that day specifically to leave. I didn't have any deadlines or limitations, so I think that I must have just picked October 13th for no reason. I enlisted my good friend Zoe to ride along with me.


By the way, when I left home, I was California bound. Arizona was just going to be a pit-stop on the way to my new home/life in California. I was going to go out and stay with my friends in Santa Ana.


I was supposed to spend a year working, skating, and gaining my residency so I could go to school out there in sunny California.



It's fun to have plans, but it's more fun to look back at how my 'plans' have panned out.

On the way to make my 'move' to California, Zoe and I spent an awesome weekend skating in Arizona at all the parks. I still went to California but after a few months of watching Fuel TV, sitting in traffic, and hardly skating I decided to move to the desert and start all over again. Arizona seemed like a place where I could skate a lot more, with way fewer hassles. Again, I was going to spend a year working, skating, and gaining residency so I could go to school. But instead of doing so in sunny California, I chose to do so in Sunnier Arizona.

Again with the plans.

Here I am 4 years later. Working(sorta), skating, and still not in school due to residency issues. My plans haven't all come about exactly as.... um, planned, but I'm still really enjoying Arizona for what I wanted to enjoy Arizona for: the weather and the skateparks. I didn't anticipate meeting as many awesome people out here as I have over the years, but that's been a major bonus and a huge factor in how much I've enjoyed living here.


Anyway, I guess my point is this: The different sets of plans that I've made over the past few years haven't come to life, and my new plans(the ones that change almost everyday) might not come to life either, but who cares. As long as Tempe park is open every night and Venezia's stays in business, I'll be just fine.

KTR-R=KT!!!!!!

Kevin Taylor is amazing. Possibly underrated?, possibly right where he should be? I don't know. I just think he's awesome and for some reason I get the feeling that he's really nice in person. I hope I meet him somehow someday.

I'm very excited.

'Drugs are going to hurt you, whether you take them for the right reason or the wrong reason'
This isn't my photo to post, but I'm doing it anyway. I think this is one of the funniest pictures to grace my eyes. Me posting it was inspired by an amazing kid named Kimi Judds who lives in Japan. The caption on this picture is about as funny as the picture itself.

STL Drew

St. Louis Drew is in town right now and he's doing good things on the board! It was looking like Drew wasn't going to land this one, but he did and his hype man, Jim Chesnutt, made sure everyone knows wassup!!!

Here's a video of Peter Ramondetta whooping some kids in SKATE. The reason that I put this up is because I also have beat some of these same kids in SKATE. Specifically McCoy who is the one who tries the backside flip and misses...... sucker.

One Time I Did This............


Strikes and gutters

Normally I would be nervous to leak such sensitive footage. Buuuuttt since you can't really tell what's happening here, I'm not worried about people getting too bummed on me for putting this up. Just wanted to share the fact that I saw something pretty amazing happen today.

I almost saw two amazing tricks go down, but Dylan pwned his feet too hard to stick with this whirlybird spin over the rail.
