Flowtrash has been coming hard with the updates lately.
I'd be remiss not to link to the Lakai Am I Am vid, pretty sure they'd revoke my internet pass for that. Them dudes rip.

I've definitely lagged on posting this, but Chrome Ball has an interview with Ronnie Bertino, a skater who I fully idolized back in the day.
While Bertino's part in SHS was ultra fresh, I was a fan of him first because of his part in XYZ's Stars and Bars; its hard not to be psyched on a dude who looks at Penthouse behind some Kmart wearing a Menace shirt (at least that's what I always imagined was happening)
Who remembers when there wasn't an indoor skatepark in town? Don't shit where you eat people, even if you only eat there once in a while.

The Hesh actually has some content and has even made promises of further content, and they even remind you, the reader, to chime in on the hot topic on here, before I'm over it and just close the comments.

As yet-to-be substantiated rumors fly about the postponement of 3rd Lair's O.U.T. contest this weekend (no word on the 3rd Lair site), one wonders just what must have happened to relegate 2010's version to the might not happen dustbin of skate whateverness.
O.U.T. started out fully hyped. For a few years it was, without being too important with things, one of the best things in TC skateboarding. Upsets and excitement and good skateboarding were the norm, it was a good appraisal of who was who within the Twincities skateboard biosphere, and for a time, it was a good place to start something. That is no more. Let's just say that nollie 360 shuv-its have ruined it all, and that skater apathy is usually quite a difficult thing to cultivate, overall; one or an entity has to work for it. So it goes.
Happy Weekend, and
Liz Cheney is banned. Yet again, so it goes.

In other re-location news, a buck short and a day late no less, everyone's favorite video dude, editor, tequila and skateboard slanger, Dennis Burdick, has re-re-located back to the Twincities, having grown weary of the rep life in the not always greener Orange County.
For those that follow this humble skateboard site on the Twitter (read: just about no one) you already know that the The Jocks vs. Chillers trip to Milwaukee was pretty good. Footage may yet show up on the internets, and it should be known that Tabari made the chillers look good. Hey Pizzy, too bad about Bogut's dislocated elbow.
I never linked to Familia's Wu Tang board, shirt and toothbrush, in this instance, giving props to Bratrud's photoshop skills.
Edit: Found a quote reading a blog post about Scrabble controversy that seems to ring true about skateboarding too:, "That's the problem with brilliant inventions: A lame knockoff looks like a lame knockoff."
