surrounded by chooches

one of the guys i work with lives in salem and mentioned to me yesterday that he saw a skatepark going up near the mall there. my curiosity was immediately peaked but after a bit of internetting all i came up with were these minutes from a town meeting:
5. Business:
• Skate Park: Chris pointed out that at the last meeting he assigned
homework of going around town to see if a spot jumped out at you that
said the skate park should go here to bring it forward. Did anyone find a
spot like that? Everybody started nodding their heads reflecting a negative
response.
Pat summarized the donations received for construction of the skate park
and we will have access to those funds. He is getting companies to donate
all or part of paving, fencing, and signs. Merrill will fill any sink holes.
No tax payer money will be used to construct the park. He mentioned that
the police department will patrol the park every hour and he is going to
have a camera angled at the park from Wal-Mart. Pat also mentioned
extra stone from exit 2; he will see if Rick Russell might be able to get
some to help with building parts up.


really? the police are gonna patrol it every hour? if they're there that much is the wal-mart sponsored security camera even necessary? i fully embrace skateboarding's pseudo outlaw image but this shit is getting out of hand. if you were building a fucking baseball field or a pussy volleyball court would you still feel the need for that much of a police presence? if they're gonna treat me like a criminal then i'm gonna act like one. i'm goin' down there opening day and cooking up a huge batch of meth on top of the fucking hubba or whatever other shitty obstacle the choochy city workers throw together. the whole thing reeks of those faggots at NOTB anyways so who cares. fuck salem.

R.I.P. harvey pekar


artist, writer, philosopher and nihilist. the man spoke the truth and people listened. if you haven't read the "american splendor" comics or seen the movie i recommend doing so. great stuff about honest living and the struggles of the everyday dude.

nigga got a concrete lawn!


thanx to thick b aka surf mcmurph aka sha one for alerting me to this swagged out shit.

strange days


i remember sitting and reading this issue on our "corner" in north litchfield after my friend robbie stole it from his dentist's office. it had an ill interview with stranger where he talked about drugs, homelessness, bombing hills and the generally odd state of the world at the time. there was also some life advice from uncle burly, some delicious "scarfing material" recipes and a great letter written by a young man from the mid west who was losing his shit on acid while his friend was getting a blowjob in the next room. maybe it's because i was young or maybe i'm too jaded now but thrasher seemed much more dangerous back then. i just got the newest issue and i gotta say eli reed's cover shot in the c-bowl is the highlight for sure. oh and the interview with brujeria that my friend xander did is killer. but between boring tour articles about places i'll never be able to afford to go to and over glossy corporate ads for brands i no longer identify with, it's all just filler. is this just a symptom of getting older or has the thin veiled facade of the once exotic skate industry finally been lifted only to expose it for what it is, self indulgent shit. im not sayin' i could do any better nor do i know the first thing about publishing but c'mon phelps. gimme danger.
