Boosh vs. Social Distortion!

September 7, 2008

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...

This kid ruled...

August 13, 2008

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.

Vert button...

August 7, 2008

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?

I like Mike Anderson & Virginia!

August 7, 2008

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:

Good thing Danny slammed...

August 4, 2008

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.

Danny Way probably needs painkillers tonight...

July 31, 2008

... Or casts, or surgery...

Love or hate this Mega Ramp bullshit, Danny Way is one gnarly mother fucker. See this slam?

Then this slam happened. And just so you know, about four or five of 'em just like 'em happened in practice too. Faceplants galore.

Then he landed those runs with backflips and varial 540s. He's simply not of this planet.
