In 2009 I can say that there were over 600 posts on here. yikes. 2009 was kind of cool. Looking forward to 2010! The beginning of not just another year, but also a new decade! Weeeeiiirrrdd times. It's kind of hard to separate the 2000+ decades, except maybe from the famous people that die or annoying new reality tv shows. Fashionwise, yeah things look expectedly weird, but you can only indulge if you can spend $$$. Otherwise, it's more or less recycled clothes for everyone for the next millenium. That is, until America starts producing their own shit again.
I had to follow this kid out of the store to get a picture of his tattoo. Wow. He told me he sent a photo of his tattoo to Bakerboys Dist. Those dudes better send this kid a lifetime of free Greco scarves..
In the past two weeks we've officially killed three mice. One was sentenced to harsh labor in an empty field on a snowy day, another probably died of hypothermia in a glue trap at the bottom of a trash can, and this one.. well it's quite evident how this one died. I was not expecting it's brains and it's mice membranes to have exploded out of it's tiny head like this. I thought about throwing up. Especially with the now solid gelatinous mouse blood stuck to the floor. It's pretty sad, but hopefully with the landlord practically tarring the kitchen floor with foam and steel wool the mouse killing fields should be over. There's nothing worse than trying to sleep only to hear mice pawing through things in your kitchen and/or hanging out under your hats on your dresser. Anxiety never sleeps.
SLASH BEST MOVIE ABOUT BOBBSLEDDING JAMAICANS!!! slow claps are weird, when is it approriate to start one? I've tried to start one before but I don't think it ended up in an infectious riotous outcome. oh well! maybe next time..
Looked at the Lowcard site and saw this trailer. It seems that there are skateboard shops popping up all over San Francisco these days. Which is good right? Why should ftc and dlx get to sit alone on a skateboarding gold mine? Magnethead is rad, I don't know any of the other dudes in this trailer.. but I did look on the Cruz website and found that they sold Bunga Ankle Sleeves for $15.99 and carry exactly seven boards in their online shop. Is it bad that I'm such a hater? I get it, you got to have other product to survive, but ankle sleeves and whistles? I can only blame skateboarding for my judgemental shortcomings as a human. This video looks serious.. you can tell immediately by the film quality, amount of bro pounds, and an emotional nollie f/s heel over a fire hydrant, that this video should be taken seriously. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if making an impromptu skate video for what seems to be a predominately female referee on skates skate shop can produce a trailer that looks this promising, then I seriously think anyone and everyone should open up a skateshop. Fuck working as a line cook or being a full time craigslist fetish responder, what you need to do is open up a god damn skate shop. But on another shop note, what video that has thoroughly gotten me stoked is Orchard Skateshop's "Out of Body Experience." Bang up video, bang up shop. Wonder what Jerry Fowlers been up to?
