Damian Carbajal.

I like this photo.

Damian did a bunch of big ollies and impossible variations in Not The New H-Street video.

The H-Street timeline is simultaneously useful and a little hard to read.

This wraps up a look back at T. Mag and M.T.'s skateboard culture influencing beast from the late 1980s and very early 1990s. The team got too big, there were financial issues, and skateboarding went through a rebellious teenage phase where everything sucked so H-Street started to lose the coolness that it once had. The company stuck around for a few more years, but after the big names left for Plan B, things were never the same.

It will be a week of Cream starting on Tuesday. I got a couple of their ads and I'll figure something out to fill in the other day or two.

Have a good weekend.

Thrasher - January 1991 Volume 11 Number 1

I always like this photo too. It's so tucked and tweaked. I couldn't comprehend how he got so contorted.

Then when Not the New H-St Video came out, I was super bummed how bad his style looked!

Also... didn't the time line continue through multiple ads?

For Cream week, you should combine with American Dream Inc if you don't have enough ads.

I watched his parts today. He's a little stiff. It could just be the giant Airwalks.

I've been having the hardest time finding stuff for Cream. At this point I'm thinking they advertised only in Big Brother from 1994 to 1995 because I've checked Thrasher, Slap, and TWS twice over.

I have managed to find a couple of actual ads in Thrasher, one of which looks like a Photoshop accident with the magic wand occurred. I figured with the short week it wouldn't be too hard, but that is not the case.

Maybe I'll just do a week of ADI stuff in the near future.
