Three minutes of new Lavar footage from 48 blocks. Glad to see he is skating again!!
Heavy doses of Lennie Kirk in this. Dope style for sure- I remember him walking around with his trench coat at Union Square and the Pier. Shortly thereafter I remember people saying he had been thrown in jail for all that gnarly shit with a sawed off shotgun. There had been a couple times where the police would run people out of Union Square at night for skating and people would scatter. I remember hiding out in front of a closed store with him randomly after such an occassion. In between talking about God, I remember he used to talk about how much Spanish he could speak- which might have something to do with how he is in 2011. Glad he never flipped on me..

A friend posted this on facebook-SF based video from the 90's. Wow really takes it back. Avenue wise. Gang Starr and white out pen tags. Damn. This is probably around the time I could land half cab flips with my Ipath Grasshoppers. Ancient history. The only thing missing from this is probably getting deli cuts from the Safeway next to Hubba Hideout.
Joe Valdez China Banks scary way ollie. Gnarly as shit!

Dang, second Jackie Chan skateboard oriented kung fu battle. This guy loves to push! Chinese futuristic bike punks in Barcelona?
And cute baby elephants that frolick on the beach are a no brainer to post..
Saw this on Facebook. Rad. Shut skates NYC. Glad to see small shops/ companies being covered on the local news. Even beyond skateboards, there is a definite undercurrent of resurgence for American made products. And fuck brands that advertise as American made, but still have products that aren't.

One of my favorite places in San Francisco is Creativity Explored. It is a pretty amazing place with genuinely impressive art and artists. I included a few artists below.. To look at these artists and others visit Creativity Explored Online.
Creativity Explored is a nonprofit visual arts center where artists with developmental disabilities create, exhibit, and sell art. We are committed to supporting people with developmental disabilities to become working artists, and to promoting their work as an emerging and increasingly important contribution to the professional art world. Creativity Explored provides workspace and materials in ongoing studio sessions facilitated by a team of professional artists who support and assist studio artists. Creativity Explored’s professional exhibitions program promotes studio artists’ work through a wide array of local, regional, national, and international exhibition venues including commercial galleries, and corporate and public spaces.
Creativity Explored studio artists come from diverse backgrounds and bring with them a wide variety and range of experience, ability, and sensibility. Some of our artists just turned twenty years old, while others are in their eighties. Some have lived lives of previous isolation or institutionalization, while others have spent their entire lives with their families in a supportive and accepting environment. Many of our studio artists speak different languages, or do not speak, and are unable to communicate with each other using spoken language. At Creativity Explored, visual art is language everyone can use to share culture, experience, and feelings.
