P. Rizzle needs to chill!

July 17, 2008

Like, seriously Paul... I know it's 100 grand, but really, you don't need to slaughter everyone this badly. Let 'em live a little!

Honestly, I've been known to say that sometimes Paul skates a little "too perfectly" for my taste. But sitting there last weekend watching this thing, I didn't realize how much P-Rod really destroyed everything until I got around to editing the footage today. So many first try bangers on the entire setup all done so perfectly... a well-deserved victory if you ask me.

Leo Romero is fucking psycho...

July 12, 2008

... And I love it. Aside from barreling over the princess of Saudi Arabia while she was walking near the course with her entourage... yes, you read that right... Leo ran her over... he then did this, which is one of the gnarlier things I've ever seen happen at a contest in my life.

A Maloof minute...

July 11, 2008

Part of why I love skateboarding so much is simply because of how effortlessly funny people are... constantly. In this case, Koston observes a Malto slam, with special guest appearances by Alex Olson and Mike Carroll!

The Tim O'Connor Adidas Roast

July 7, 2008

rob brink tim oconnor adidas roast

If you don't mind waiting for a 200 meg 10 minute clip to load and some sporadic sketchy audio, and watching a nervous and flu-ridden version of me trying to be funny, then here ya go. The Tim O'Connor Adidas Roast. These are jokes. You know... fun? Somehow I didn't catch a beating. Hugs 'n handshakes 'n other peaceful bro gestures were exchanged with all when all was said and done... phew. I even saw Reese in the men's room at the TWS awards recently and we totally bonded!

Malto breaks some wood!

June 20, 2008

This is what happens when you are drinking and bored in a hotel room on an etnies tour in Tennessee. Not sure how we even got to this point, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Malto has good form... my head barely hurt the next day!

Saving baby turtles...

May 26, 2008

Jose found this baby turtle scrambling across a parking lot. We brought him into the woods and left him, then learned there was a river a hundred yards away. Having a totally sensitive moment, I ran back to the dispatch location, somehow found him and brought him to the river. He was hyped. I like turtles.
