Al, Chet, Don, Ben.
What many people don't know, or often seem to forget about the skateboarding industry, is that sometimes, everyone stops giving a shit about the politics of who they work or ride for and just decide to go have fun... together... kinda like when you go skateboarding with your friends, right? In recent times, it's something I particularly admire The Berrics for achieving.
The holiday party that etnies threw last night, for any adidas employee willing to come, was a pretty damn good time. Nike dudes showed up, adidas dudes showed up, Burnside dudes showed up, big media dudes like Yahoo! and CNBC showed up, cute ladies showed up and dressed like elves for us, Santa showed up, regular people with no idea what was going on showed up... it was well worth the there-and-back-in-24-hours trip up to Portland.
Santa totally killing it.
No one ever said this was a family site. I'd "read more" if I were you... that is, unless you are under 18... then you should go read a different part of this site.
Marla Singer can do this too...
Al totally killing it.
"You don't mind if I grab your tit do you?"
"Oh no! Go for it! These idiots paid us $50 bucks to do this all night and they totally love the "pseudo-lipstick lesbian" thing that we all do!"
Santa totally killing it some more.
This photo of Bryce and his wife would have been rad if only I knew how to use a flash.
This is, by far, the best flannel I've ever seen.
One her knees! Obama is thankful he came for sure! And don't worry, Santa is just watching... not indulging. Besides, he's totally down for Mrs. Claus.
Woah, this looks like a fun table to be at! This lovely lady kept things pretty exciting all night.
See what I mean?
With all this action going on, you'll probably need something from here. Only 50 cents!
Al... done killing it... perhaps still killing it, just in a different manner.
Beer, cigarettes, cell, puke, lighter, broken candy cane, skateboard. Sounds about right.
