Rape, Skateboards, Stalking, Police Brutality, and Wii

This song was made by some Miami Hurricanes football players about the gang banging that goes on in their resident hall (aka 7th Floor). The song was funny in a ridiculous way, until I realized it was about what really goes on (rape anyone?).

On a more positive note, check out the new Western Edition video (WE3), if you haven't already.

While in this fruit stand place I noticed this cat very preoccupied with something in the store.

I think I found the culprit.

Get 'em boy!

A little while back, the NAACP organized this civil disobedience march to block traffic showing their disapproval of the results in the Sean Bell trial. I went to the grouping near my job (at Varick and Houston Street) to film their march to block the Holland Tunnel. Here are some photos I took on my phone while trying to film at the same time:

In a just as important event a week or so later, I went to the WiiFit launch in Central Park.

Act a fool, dooood!

I know, lame post...but at least it is an update. I will make it up in the next one or something. Maybe.

De Amazon

So I got to skate the new spot yesterday with Scottie and some others. We also hit up a few other sick spots around here...that might be for another day, though.

Today, Camille and I went to the new Amazon exhibit at the Seaport. It was pretty cool. I don't feel like captioning much right now, but here are the photos.

They had this area full of seeds or beans or something that kids were allowed to play in.

Lingua de vaca (cow tongue)...obviously a plant, it is called that because it just looks like a cow's tongue, stupid.

Camille taking in the info.

Mosquito, aka worst part about the Amazon.

This was the room about deforestation.

The scenery was nice, seeing that it was right on the pier...

Scottie and I decided on a mission to make a semi-cemented barrier spot in Queens a fully-cemented barrier spot (still in Queens, haha). Here are some photos from the last couple nights working on it.

Scottie with the tools to begin the sesh. You can see the little bit of cement that was there to the left.

5 bags the first day, with water from the car wash up the street.

And the process begins...

Scottie's got clout (buckets)!

After finishing up on the first day (no photos, sorry), we realized that we were really only half way there...unless we only wanted wallrides. So we went back last night with another 5 bags.

This local, Solomon, helped us out. He had extra tools and some experience in cementing.

Touching it up a bit.

Scottie was filling in some cracks while we were at it.

Overall, it went pretty smooth. We did have a cop roll up on us last night, caught like deer in headlights, but he was cool. He asked if we saw anyone painting graffiti around and we said no. Basically he acted like nothing was happening and left. Pretty amazing. Can't wait to skate it!
