Norman McLaren - Boogie Doodle
Norman McLaren- Neighbours ( 1952)
ATWA. MANSON WORSHIP.
The Seeds in your living room!!
Thirteenth Floor Elevators. Young Roky
Downtown 81.. Basquiat, DNA. yes..
I thought about posting some Thrasher king of the road shit, but since I couldn't find any of Alexis' nollie heelfips down ten stairs or whatever, I came across Pete and Pete. Pre-cell phone, personal technology road trips, nostalgia lane. Feeling it!

Skateboarding wise, clipper ledge. Like whoa! If anyone ever wondered what skateboarding would be like in 2011- no names doing three flip 50-50s, kickflip 5-0s down Clipper? I remember when Darrell Stanton did a b/s noseblunt down that thing and that was like slow motion on every vcr/dvd for the next year.. Been watching a little bit of this One in a Million contest and I have to say some of the challenges are cool.. Notice -one guy- is from the eastcoast. Is it a coincidence that everyone is from California or Arizona? It's probably because the House of Vans won't let anyone skate in their warehouse during the winter. I mean you can't blame them- why not open a 50,000 sq. foot skateboarding facility exclusively for partying? Who needs to skate when you can parrrtttyyyy and make it a tax write off!!!!

Ebay finds. Hard to believe even ironic shirts go for more than $40 sometimes!
Favorite find of the day! The hand matches the drapes.. someone is selling an acrylic skateboard display. Board not 4 sale! It kind of looks like my first skateboard. I had a powell blank with weird black label and "flygirl" stickers. Harsh.
