This spot looks like so much fun. Hatchet Man doesn't seem like that much fun though.

Kids from the Windy City sometimes get busy with the wind in Jersey City

So I decided to make a hike out to Jersey City yesterday to skate Hamilton with Matt and Gary Rzeszutko and upon leaving the Path Train we were greeted with (what seemed like) hurricane force winds. It felt like gravity lost its direction and ended up moving in the wrong direction (horizontal). We got some amusing footage playing in the wind that I will post when I get a chance to make a little clip. I never realized how much wind can wear you out...

I sometimes imagine how awesome it would be to hold a political position, such as a mayor of a city. I guess when you do things like force police to write more tickets and end up getting 5 for a broken headlight, it may not be that awesome after all.

Classified ads can yield the most entertainment in the fewest words:
'I've divorced better men than you. And worn more expensive shoes than these. So don't think placing this ad is the biggest comedown I've ever had to make. Sensitive F, 34.'
At least they have Mr. Lif on the homepage...

That is a lot of stairs to land fakie on. Props.

Video part of the day...native New Yorker, Mr. Frank Gerwer.

Halloween Parties 3 Days Early

Who needs to waste all that time going to school (or the military) then going to the police academy just to get a badge and a gun when all you need is sucker techniques and steel-toed boots?

Some of you may not have heard of Tallahassee, Florida. Some of you may have heard of it, but are under the impressions that it does not contribute anything significant to the world. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Volleybonk!

For those of you unfortunate enough to have never played this game, may I suggest buying a ball and hijacking a tennis court? Bonus points for headshots!

So a year or two ago, while digging for records somewhere random, I found this jewel. With lyrics like:
Teenage girls
We like 'em a lot
Doncha know they're hot
They know what to do
They'll give it to you
That is from a song called (none other than) Teenage Girls. A couple other notable lyrics from that are: "Cruzin' the beach for more:/ Teenage girls/...Gonna wear us out/ They get so tan/ Make you feel like a man." And men they are. Case in point, watch how manly the blonde one (Drew Steele) plays with his toys in the shallow end of the pool.

Seriously though, here is a much better way to feel like a man...

And next time you go to the bubble banks, if you do this, the bricks will have enough respect for you to preserve your board enough to skate another day.

Problem solved

Time to spark the monotone

I would like to start with some lyrics...

"Blue Yankee hat on/ Red Monkey pants on/ Fresh to death because I keep the latest fash-on"

"I got Gucci on, she got Prada/ She calls me daddy, but she not my daughter/ and I'm not her father/ I'm just a man"

-Kevin Federline

Wow! Talk about spittin' knowledge...your verbal syntax is amazing, Kevin. I wonder how much time you spent figuring out how to make "pants on" rhyme with "fashion." Jay-Z should probably reconsider making a come-back, the rap game just got far more complex.

With Dipset's skate team and Jamal getting all the attention on the skateboard sites, I want to highlight the newest addition sure to get all the buzz, Robert. Call me corny, but puns are so in this Fall.

Wack. Can I motion for a mandatory course on Political Correct Education...right between American History and PE?

I just got back from Portland (Oregon, not Maine) and I have to say that it is an amazing city. I am not going to spoil things yet...just wait for a coming post.
