the paths we take.....

Adam Tobler was ahead of his time. I guess in some circles he probably still is.

Here's a recent picture of him after winning some sort of Tomato growing competition.

Here's footage of him when he was probably 13 or 14. Mind blowing.

Go here and skip to 9:45 for some more good stuff

6 weeks deep

6 weeks without soda. To be honest I'm surprised at myself. I still have a while until pay day, 46 more weeks to be exact. But if I can go 6 weeks then I could go any amount of weeks. As lame as it sounds, I didn't really have any faith in my own will power before this little escapade. Now I know that it, and everything else that I do, is completely up to me, which is a good feeling.

So far, I've had 5 dreams in which I have had soda absent-mindedly and then freaked out because of it. It's pretty funny that I've actually woken up from dreams with that terrified feeling that I had done something horribly wrong, and then had that crazy relieving feeling that it was just a dream. I've also had some close calls. One night I bought what I thought was a lemonade and was about to drink it when I realized it was an italian soda! Just the other day when I was on the airplane coming back to Arizona from Chicago, I caught myself thinking "I wonder if the stewardess would give me the entire can (of soda)" I quickly realized my laps in thinking. My biggest concern having one of my nightmares come true and just taking a drink of some soda without thinking about it. I feel like if I have a downfall that is it. We'll see. I'll keep the lot of you posted. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I found this on my old/new friend Sandy's blog! I can't tell if it's a joke or not.

Everyone's a 'photographer'

and now so am I. I'm declaring this my first official photo! Shot on my Verizon LG 4500. I spent all day in the darkroom printing it out. I've got chemicals all over my shoes now. I'm thinking about turning my car into a darkroom.

humble beginnings

Here's where it all started. Flatground in front of the house before anything. Hours and hours of flatground. I couldn't get enough of it.

This sewer gap was pretty good. It was like a one stair with the length of a two stair.
I guess we had a philly stair, but when we were little we called it the 'curb-cut' because we had heard that somewhere and we didn't know what it meant.

This one is hard to see but right by the tree the sidewalk is tipped up and it's like a really long launch ramp. You bomb a mini hill to it too and it used to make me feel like I was skating that school in San Diego that has the hillbomb hallways.

This deathdrop right here is sort of a touchy subject with me. I tried to ollie off of it into the street but I landed on the curb and got hurt. The footage of me trying really hard not to cry made it to the video! how embarrassing

This curb was sick because you didn't have to ollie onto it. I probably did my first grinds right there.

this is the curb where Ben Smith invented the kickflip b/s 5050 kickflip out

wooden ledge spot! The neighbor was so mean to us for skating here. My friend Spencer peed on his house as revenge

bump? sorta? we used to pretend we were doing tricks over a pyramid after we would watch 411s

This bench used to be plastic and really tall. Now it's neither

clearing off the desktop!

Sometimes my phone does this thing where I'll take a picture and save it, and then it won't show up when I scroll through my pics. So sometimes they show up after the blogpost is already done. Some of these are those pics.
