Congrats on hitting the big 2-0, Chocolate.

Gabe photos are always so perfect.

Daewon Song #2.



Two things have come to my attention in the new issue of Transworld:

1. There is 24 shot sequence of Daewon kickfliping out of a blunt on a quarterpipe and then doing a fakie nose manual from the tranny to the curb for Knox Hardware. It looks like a bunch of video grabs, even though it was shot with a much nicer camera than anything in 1993. The quarterpipe requires hopping up a curb before you get to it, which is how that combo is possible, if you are Daewon.

2. OJ is making 42mm Dingle Berries wheels that come in a fake cereal box.

So cheer up you old curmudgeons who miss the 1990s. Things haven't changed a bit.

Joyride.

I've been on a Channel One kick. AVE rode for Jinx's company before Twenty Three, the Alien Workshop, and Fucking Awesome. He is currently filming for the much anticipated Vans video.

Work is still nutty, but I did manage to check out Bill Strobeck's Joyride video yesterday. The kids sure can do impossibles over very high obstacles. Like most things today, there were parts of it I dug and parts that didn't do much for me. I did like that it had more rider names than Cherry. The Gonz driving is scary.

Sean Young #3.



Demolition derby skateboarding.

Fun bit of trivia: This is the second Anti-Hero ad ever.

The photos are probably by Tobin Yelland.

Cannonball.

It's good to see this guy is still around and popping up on assorted blogs.

Miki Vuckovich took the photos.

A young Max dropping in and carving around. Forties always used vintage photos from the younger days of their riders in the early ads.

Struggle ollie into a bank on wobbly trucks.

Old Stereo ads had such good graphic design.

What's going on in skateboarding these days? I mean that as an in general question, not implying that anything is more amiss than usual. I haven't been keeping up with a whole bunch of websites lately due to work.
