vhs nostalgia - anti hero "cow video"


this is probably the best video ever made. u can watch the rest of it on the youtube im just to lazy to copy and paste all the sections on this shit. all anti hero videos are good obviously but i think this has got to be my favorite one. proctor got it first and i rememeber when he let me borrow it i watched it at least twice a day for the entire time i had it. fukktards is super gnarly but this video along with the skating had a killer soundtrakk. any andy roy footage is epic but when its set to void's "who are u and why am i here", thats just fukkin tits. i honestly feel that videos like this, along with jake phelps' passionate editorials from the time period, are what drove me to start traveling to new and interesting places in search of new shit to shred eventually leading me to skatings current mecca, oregon. me being the idiot that i am though, one hot summer day i left proctors tape in the bakk window of my car and it melted. i replaced his copy with a dubbed vhs that also contained jim's ramp jam which i believe he still has. i guess we're even.

vhs nostalgia - emerica "yellow" 1997




this is pretty much the whole thing. i remember being kinda bummed when i got this from the sale basket at EB. i realized after one viewing that the reason it was 8 bukks was cuz it fukkin stunk. all these sikk dudes with a lot of wierd b list, almost throwaway footage, some i saw in other videos, crappily thrown together with an ok soundtrakk. not to mention that the whole thing reaked of yellow. i fukkin hate yellow. a lot of split sections too with ripping dudes. donny barley and cardiel share a section thats actually real sikk but everyone elses shit is super short. moldanado and tim o'connor have like 5 trikks but ron whaley of course has a full part. and theres a jamie thomas/adrien lopez split part in the end that i couldnt find that was WAY below j.t. standards. i think that this might have been one of the last sort of ghetto budget style videos of the nineties. i mean nowadays a major shoe company with all these riders would never rush out a half assed video like this. marc johnsons part is dope but i'm pretty sure he probably filmed it in a couple weeks rather than spending years traveling around the world stakking footage. also "the end" came out shortly after in 98 and that kinda raised the bar i guess as far as production goes.

vhs nostalgia - "jim's ramp jam"




if u seen this before then u know whats up. if u haven't then here it is. so many rippers on one ramp. probably one the best "holy shit i have to go skate right fukking now" videos. i wish the intro was up on youtube too but i couldnt find it. they did a whole "decline of western civilization" thing which is a video i was also VERY into at the time. i was living in keene and i think kenny had it but im not sure. RIP phil shao.

on wednesday october 29th it snowed


winter is coming.

pembroken bones

finally went the infamous pembroke pool. pretty sikk even though it was all fukked up and filled with crap.

this is seriuosly gnar-gnar. mark kills. no one else got shit except for joe who got a broken ankle.
after we fukked around here for a bit we went to the concord park to get a sesh in before the rain hit. park sukks and i ate shit pretty bad there but it was fun. one thing that i noticed was that there was a heavy police presence the entire time we were there which was only like 20 minutes. i saw 3 cruisers drive by real slow and stare then when we were leaving one cop actually pulled up about 10 feet away from us and just parked and sat there. are skaters still that discriminated against? do we still have the stigma of trouble makers even though we've been forced into these reservation type areas that are presumed safe and run by a set of rules decided on by the police themselves? what the fukk? i dont go to where they hang out on their days off and just park my car and lurk. maybe i should do that.

lissy trulie - how fukkin rad is this chikk?





can't wait fer this album to drop

road tripping

so i went on a three day skate trip extravaganza this weekend and had a great time. heres some things i learned:
-pennsylvania is nice
-u cant get beer at convienience stores there but they do have drive thru beer garages.
-conneticut still BLOWS.
-joe is an old man who wears rice sokks around his nekk.
-ralph murphy screams in his sleep and is a chronic shitter.
-fukk a GPS.
-shawn is an idiot.
-peanut butter brownies are good.
-bob rules. the holland tunnel does not.
-when everyone is skating/drunk as fukk and we all have cameras, no one uses them. at all.
-not showering for three days may look good on paper but sukks in practice.
-weed makes u tired. who knew?
-new york is rad.
-FDR is the gnarliest palce ive ever skated. ever.

super cereal. this place is fukkin nuts. i especially liked how the concrete hammering locals decided to let us know the session was over by smashing bottles all over the surface of the entire park. well played fellas. well played.
thanx again to casey and his girl for all the hospitality. you rule.

vhs nostalgia - sonic skateboards "one louder"


simon woodstok's section is the only one on youtube from this video but its probably the best. maybe nanda zipp or mike crabtree had better parts. i dunno.
i definitely remember watching this at ryan travis' house along with all the other stunning videos he had in his collection from this time period. i also have this wierd memory of when we were watching the intro part one time and at the part where his brother goes "..and i threw my whole life away on drugs and alchohol" proctor said, "ya jones probably thinks thats cool" in kind of a mean jerk-y tone. while this comment was a bit harsh, it was not entirely unfounded. it was around this time that i had just discovered the joys of partying and i was conciuosly trying to be as much of a burnout as i could. smoking weed, talking about weed, drawing pictures that were weed related, building stupid bongs, etc. proctor was also in kind of in a wierd place then too if i remember correctly. we were all really into skating but jeff was a little hard on himself sometimes and would throw little fits and yell and toss his board around and stuff. generally being kinda jokk-esque. sometimes he would just skate off in mid session and we would have to wait around for a bit until he came bakk calmer and wiser. anyways, at first i remember being like, "whatever dude, fukk off and go play soccer". but to be honest with u, i did think it was kinda cool. not like, "wow i wanna be like that! he's cool!" but in more of a self destructive pseudo romantic punk rokk nhilist idiot kinda way. wierd i know but i was a wierd kid.
i dont mean this as a shot at proctor in any way. i mean shit, i am the fukkin king of the asshole comments so fukk it. seeing this video just reminded me of all this and i thought i would share it. jeff's much better now anyways. me, not so much.

went to the currier opening tonite. saw some epic warhols. it really is a whole different expierience when u see "famous" art work in person. i left the gallery feeling sad about the death of atomic optimism that came about as a result of the assasination of JFK. the fukkers won. way bakk then. so then what the fukks the point of anything now? i dunno. im just glad there was a velvet underground tribute band that didnt sukk. and i looked at almost contemporary art with my father and we would have gotten to talk about it too if my mother hadnt worn "difficult" shoes.

vhs nostalgia - sub zero "real life"



i think only saw this shit once or twice on VHS when one of my roomates in college had it for some reason but goddam this shit is dope! fukkin matt reason, oyola, gall, fukkin trundowski! all in there prime. philly styles changed the game and as cliche as it sounds it really was a breath of fresh air to see dudes skating spots like ours (brikks, shit pavement, traffic, etc.) as opposed to the schoolyard retardo tech you got from the west coast at the time. i think they might have invented the pole jam too.

this used to scare the shit out of me. still kinda does. the pure anger and sense of true radical political activism thru art that this band conveys must have inspired millions. changed my whole fukkin perspective on shit bro. i remember laying in bed like my sophomore year of high school and listening to this and thinking, "wow, so this punk rock. i finally found it."
thanks crass.

rapist of the week: rikki rokket



PHILADELPHIA, Miss. — Poison drummer Rikki Rockett was arrested on a rape warrant and his case was turned over to the district attorney's office for possible grand jury consideration, officials said Friday.

Rockett, 46, was arrested Monday at or near Los Angeles International Airport, Los Angeles police said. He was booked and released, and was awaiting an extradition decision by Mississippi prosecutors.

A woman in Mississippi filed a complaint that she was raped on Sept. 23, 2007, at the Silver Star Casino, Neshoba County sheriff's investigator Ralph Sciple said.

"The subject, Rikki Rockett, forcibly had sex with an adult in one of the hotel rooms," according to a complaint.

Sciple said the woman contacted authorities several days after the alleged attack. He dd not discuss details of the case, but said his office believed the woman's complaint warranted review by the district attorney.

The casino-hotel complex in Philadelphia, about an hour northeast of Jackson, is owned by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.

Rockett, whose real name is Richard Ream, did not have a listed number in the Los Angeles area and could not be reached Friday for comment.

Rockett was booked into the Los Angeles County jail under his stage name and released early Tuesday, according to jail inmate information on the county sheriff's Web site. Sciple said there was no immediate attempt to bring Rockett back to Mississippi and a decision on extradition would await action by the district attorney.

Rockett and singer Bret Michaels founded Poison, the glam-metal band with a string of hits in the 1980s, including "Talk Dirty to Me."

fix the metal table fukker division



BELLEVUE, OH -- A man in central Ohio is accused of having sex with his picnic table. The investigation began when a tipster gave police three DVDs showing Arthur Price having sexual intercourse with a metal round table on his deck. The incidents occurred between January and March 2008. Police say the DVDs show Price involved in a sex act in his bedroom. He walks out to his deck, tilts the table on its side and has sex with it. Police say Price lives near an elementary school. Price admitted that he had sex with the picnic table when police questioned him. He confirmed to police the incidents caught on the DVDs and said he had also had sex with the table inside the home. Price faces four counts of public indecency. He is free on a $20,000 bond.
