News From June 2009

5 recent photos...

From my handy (yet crappy) digital point and shoot camera that I have been avoiding because it makes me not shoot film.

Vancouver, Canada

A great place to be.
5770dsc08481.JPG
Don Brown got in the spirit.
5770dsc08485.JPG
Good times. Solidarity with your skate bretheren.
5770dsc08484.JPG
We stopped at various spots around town, this one was not even planned. Of course Reynolds stepped to it much to the delight of the 2,000 skater think crowd.

Deanna and I are on the road from here, so the photography updates will resume, but contingent on internet connectivity as we travel, and possibly intermittent.

Aurora (Chicago) Illinois and Vancouver, BC Canada

I was in one, then in the other in quick succession...
5767dsc08397.JPG
The Zumiez couch tour demo we did was very populated with people.
Sect for life. Is he getting chomped by a monster?
5767dsc08398.JPG
Yes! Matching Toy shirts.
5767dsc08400.JPG

Kevin was showing me his new filming warm-up.
5767dsc08392.JPG
Leo liked it.
5767dsc08413.JPG
Then in Vancouver, within 10 minutes of getting to LeeSide (a skate-made spot under a bridge) I was trying to noseblunt this cement nipple and my board shot up and smacked me in the grill. Blood ensued. Millimeters away from exploding my nose, and cutting my eye "boxer-style."
5767dsc08417.JPG
Oh well.
5767dsc08421.JPG
The bridge of my nose has swollen up, and I now look slightly more fucked than I normally do.
5767dsc08422.JPG
I'm gonna have some black eyes I bet.
5767dsc08425.JPG
Sect lives in Vancouver too!
5767dsc08430.JPG
This is The Goat playing. I know, my digi-cam sucks. Super fun to see. Andrew and Spanky on guitars, Atiba on keyboard. Beagle on drums, and Shane singing.
5767dsc08438.JPG
And then No Age played, bringing the house down.
5767dsc08448.JPG
Sweaty youth melting into each other to rythmic music.

Get your rocks off.
5767dsc08458.JPG
The girl on the left, yes her boobs fell out. The girl on the right, yes, she is bored.
5767dsc08465.JPG
It got even more swollen later.
