It's neat how the next Toy Machine video is going to be named after the column Ed used to create for Transworld. I hope they actually press up some DVDs because watching stuff online completely sucks. Remember how it used to be when you'd get a new video you enjoyed and would watch it a ton of times to fully understand it? Those days are gone. I've been watching Dan Rusin's Outpost video a lot lately. It's filmed in the small towns of Minnesota and is totally worth checking out.

I saw a vintage pair of Circa shoes on a porch during my lunch break walk. It's an older gentleman who lives at the house so I'm not sure how he wound up with them. They looked like they were from 2004 or 5.

Leave it to Matt to pull off a crailtap on a small transition at a skatepark while wearing a helmet and make it look totally awesome. Props to the photographer, too.

It's funny because I never had a pair of Accels during the initial run of éS. I'm now up to my sixth pair in the company's second go round. I don't particularly love the model and think they might be messing up my feet a little, but I haven't seen many other shoes that have appealed to me. The Accel is mostly good once broken in and is fairly durable. The soles wear out a little on the fast side and grip odd at various points during the life of the shoe. The upper is solid and the laces hold up well. They come in a good selection of colors, too.

It's all gone somewhere beyond.

The Lakers weren't doing so hot in 2004, but Frosty was totally on fire. I like this shoe design, although I never had a pair so I don't know what they were like. It reminds me of the 1970s in a good way.
