A look into Billy's life...

Anything but skateboarding. How does he get any footage?
6770bill5.JPG
Beer-pong with Alien doesn't get you in shape to get some epic footage for the Brainwash promo video.
6770bill6.JPG
Why play anything with Billy, especially anything involving ping-pong balls, you know you will lose!
6770bill7.JPG
The opponents were Tommy Guns and Shigeo.
6770bill8.JPG
Video games are a waste of time. Filming for the Brainwash Promo Video is not.
6770bill9.JPG
Alien is a bad influence on you, or maybe it's the other way around.
6770bill11.JPG
The paraphernalia of gambling was everywhere...
6770bill10.JPG
On the couch? What did you do? The old lady kicked your ass to the couch for not bringing home the bacon, aka filming for the brainwash Promo Video!

New Logan Kincade video to hold you over until Brainwash comes out.

Hometown Heroes contests? Yeah we sponsor it.

Edwardo Prepares To Conquer Europe

 
6754edsketchface2.jpg
Ed was swirling within himself, the show was nearing completion. 
6754edexhausted.jpg
He was exhausted as the preview grew nearer.
6754workbench.jpg
So much was still to be done.
6754edanddavewordbubb.jpg
He seemed serious
6754edbubblepenis.jpg
Well, serious-ish.
6754tempsterhotelrelax.jpg
Every night he recharged with strange art films watched alone in darkness.

6743austinbs5050chickenh.jpg
Austin got up on some chicken-head.  
6743austinanddanluyellow.jpg
The luminous Daniel Lutheran joined in on the sesh.
6743danlugrifpee.jpg
Grif crept up eventually...
6743ericwhiteout.jpg
As did new bro Eric White of Bungie Board fame.
6743ericwhiteboardthrow.jpg
Showed Dan Lu a few things.
6743danluweird.jpg
After listening intently, Daniel sped off...
6743danlugrinddentistbum.jpg

Diego goes to Elche

That is a city in Spain for those geographically challenged.
6740img1211.jpg
"Hey Ed, Kevs, Here are a bunch of photos from my recent trip to Elche. Basically, we ate paella at Bob Almond´s house." (Bob Almond is Roberto Aleman's "english" name.) (By the way Diego's "english" name is Doug Cherry.) (Is that Silas Baxter back there?)
6740img1210.jpg
"Roberto's dad makes the best paella."
6740img1212.jpg
Habitat dudes Silas, Marius, Brennan and Dave Chami from TWS were in town for a couple of days. Silas mans the Bull-Barrow. Roberto is from a family of bull fighters, a tough lot no doubt.
6740img1214.jpg
Roberto, and Diego's wife Mabel.
6740img1216.jpg
A typical Spanish siesta.
6740img1219.jpg
One day we decided to check out the new Cartagena skatepark (70 miles from Elche), which looked really sick in photos – but in real life wasn´t that good.
6740img1220.jpg
Q: "Is Roberto giving you a hand-job?"
A: "No, Ed."
6740img1222.jpg
Looks fun to me...
6740img1223.jpg
What do you think The Butcher did here?
6740img1224.jpg
It's no HB park bar, but...
6740img1226.jpg
"After skating we felt like eating some chocalate milk and donuts."
6740img1228.jpg
Do not, repeat, DO NOT mess with Roberto Bummin'.
6740img1230.jpg
"Patxi, from dogway magazine, came and we skated with him a few days before I came back to Argentina. We skated this hubba the last day..."
6740img1232.jpg
"As you can see the run up was dogshit."
6740img1233.jpg
"Roberto shot a sequence of the bs 50-50 and we left."
6740img1236.jpg
I don't know why Diego included this photo and the close-up below...
6740img1237.jpg
But I'm putting it up. Maybe he got bit by a bug? Or hit his head?
Posted April 18th, 2010 by Roberto is from there and a bullfighter

Ed Does Gent, Tempster Style!

Hopped a few planes to Belgium.
6727edsunnies.jpg
Got picked up by the Tempster, who was in full art-douche mode.
6727edgentsign.jpg
He's big time in Belgium.
6727edanddelevator.jpg
We took a secret elevator to his art cave.  
6727edreligiousclusterbr.jpg
"Behold my art!" he seemed to say.
6727edreligouszorch.jpg
But inspiration ran short. 
6727creepyskatingclown.jpg
So a creepy/sexy carnival was in order to refresh the creative juices.
6727carnivaltitties.jpg
 
6727edarrowshot.jpg
Bullseye.

6723sessionknucks.jpg
Post session knucks.
6723deathwishnazi.jpg
The smell of putrid ignorance wafted in soon after.  It spreads like a mold.  Wash your hands of such bullshit.

On a lighter note, RVCA has a Southwest tour video up.
