Last Thursday at the Converse ASR party,
Boosh took out Jonny Wickersham, the guitarist from Social Distortion, with a full can of Newcastle. An action that, moments later, resulted in a full-throttle attack from Jonny himself, six bouncers and two soundboard guys. Amazingly, no Booshes were actually harmed in the making of this video, they were only removed from the House of Blues and suffered confiscation of two beanies. Epicness...

Last Thursday, etnies did a Sun Diego demo in SD...
Malto showed up and kicked me out of my desk.
Then he got thrown in the back of the van! Royal treatment for a new pro!
Awww! Then he fell asleep! etnies boxes make great pillows. Didn't you know?
That means it's time for
wake up pranks!
Keep reading! It's not all about Malto...
Once we got to the YMCA in SD, Kyle showed up with his new axe. Rails!
Sean's board got stuck on a screw.
Then he did some tricks:
Tyler finally met his match.
Mikey and Kyle had a moment after our bromantic team sushi dinner.
Before departing, Mikey attempted a urination tribute to Heath, but ran outta juice at "HEAT"

At the éS NJ skateshop demo in Sayreville a few weeks ago, this incident blew me and
Mike Anderson away...
It's a pretty harsh reality that
someone being so thankful is a shock to some of us these days. And to the little man in this video, thanks to you for being one of the raddest kids we met the entire tour.

I know, I know, vert's soooooo not cool. ESPN, the ultimate authority on skateboarding, even proclaimed it
"dead," remember? Then, a day later, it was cool, I mean, "alive," again.
Anyway, at X Games last week,
PLG took a total of 10 runs in Men's Vert (not to be confused with Women's Vert) and all were flawless. In other words, he didn't miss one trick the entire contest. He also prevented the "Twirling Carrot," or whatever they call him, from winning a gold medal again.
Imagine skating for like, an hour and not missing a trick? Where do I sign up?

So as the éS tour continued, we did one of those "demos" in Virginia where no kids allowed the team to actually skate. They just asked for free shit and lurked the course. But Mike Anderson still tried to cruise a little.
Then this happened:
Pretty sick back smith though, huh? Anyways, here's the rest of what was exciting from the demo:

I'm betting ESPN is really stoked that
Danny nearly killed himself last weekend because Jake Brown landing this run is simply not dramatic or devastating enough for American television.
