The last weekend before real-life kicks in (for me at least) is on the horizon; looks like a part of Friday night is locked in, with plenty of local skate heads who also design being involved. Nesser handled that demonstration.
If you're not in the TC this Friday but closer to the KC, this is your Friday plan.
If a skate contest leaves the area and no one is around to hear it, did it really even matter the past couple of years?
Back to watching Brazil give team USA some trouble!

Jerboi Tucklemenot has some photos from "Ghost Ride" given what appears to be a film treatment.
Killed my hard drive today because of what seemed like trying to stream MPR and look at the internet at the same time. Twas a bummer but, as that universal law goes, now I know the value of seriously backing your shit up. Oh well; gained about 100 gigs in memory and things seem to move faster, but my computer is as dingy as ever.
As mentioned in the previous post, damn, that Etnies video really should have won out (expounding further now that I'm back on the laptop). Even though it makes Meyer and I's idea for a 1992 Shitheads section passe, that shit was really, really on point. Fun to watch, not overdone and not even bordering on pretentious, it kind of covered what everybody is doing skating when there's not a camera around [you know what I mean (and not everyone rips that hard)]. Still, I think Bledsoe and Rojo need to commit to an all Blind jeans and hi-8 part that pulls no stops; I'd download that for three bucks, gladly.
Final note: could the screen grab on the video above be any better? Narloch for daze.

Gonna be in NYC soon. Edit: I think.

The Coastal Carnage video at TSM is radical.

Rumor has it that The Glue Factory is about to get way more Jah-blessed. Following.
Oh yeah, since I'm propping up the homie blogs, Wiskate has been spitting hot fire lately!

Jerboi D Bong gets some voice action from Mikey Ass Wednesdaze but doesn't fall for Badger's fuckin' app. I got beta tested on that shit myself.
Here's an idea: a Junior Mint sound board app. You know that would crush the world. Badger, get to work.
Its not that uncommon to be skating downtown at night and see chicks, presumably from the 'burbs, lost over by Government Center, looking for the clubs. I love that shit.
Having spoken of Milwaukee, the dudes there have been having quite the rollercoaster ride involving the rediscovery of The Turf Skatepark. Check the Wiskate link above for info straight from the horse's mouth, and I've been doing my best to chronicle all of it at my TSM blog. At the very least, hit up the Save The Turf Facebook page and "like" that thing; it functions as an online petition. We all know we want a chance to skate that stuff some day.

I write to you at one of the three peak seasons for girl-watching in North America. Sweater-sheathed Ms. October will knock 'em out in the fall, and the darling buds of May will spring fresh in their sundresses all too shortly, but meanwhile this is sultry deep August—impossibly flimsy fabrics, exquisite lengths of limb. Addled by murderous heat, provoked by brutal hot-to-trotness, I here risk gathering some modest notes on visual experience and modern manners.Read the rest of A Dandy's Guide To Girl Watching here. Thanks again Patterson.
