Antwerp, Belgium, A short visit...

The day after Deanna's show Thomas and Regina gave us a ride into Belgium, and we stopped in Antwerp for the day on the way to Gent...

Regina was rocking some sweet bright blue D&G shorts that she bought because it was too hot in what she had been wearing.

There was almost some nudity for you little horn-dogs, but I was too late. Sorry.

On and on...

Where is your trophy wife?

Bike riding is much bigger in Europe than in the USA.

Lombardia restaurant in Antwerp, famous tea, famous vegan whipped cream, and the owner sports a Templeton/Admiral Freebee shirt - double bonus.

The same fair that was in Gent when I was setting up my show has now traveled to Antwerp, so I once again owned a few bulls eyes to impress the ladies.
6867img0482.JPG
Yeah, another one.
6867img0483.jpg
Thomas shot some too, and got the best bullseye of the day – right in the center. Why don't they have this at fairs in the USA? Lawsuits. The carnies would take an arrow through the head once a week, or some nut job would turn his bow into the crowd and let loose...

6 in a row, all in the yellow.
6867img0487.JPG
Why don't the fairs in the USA have artwork this cool painted on the rides?
6867img0491.JPG
Regina is addicted to insulation licking.
6867img0492.JPG
Muff-dive that spun sugar.

Cotton Candy cures cotton-mouth every time.

I agree, Superman should have had a 'fro.
6867img0498.JPG
I did not ride the polyp, it sounded too much like a sexual innuendo.
6867img0499.JPG
There was a line to ride this one though...

Take your dirty thoughts elsewhere.

Posted May 29th, 2010 by that douche, the big one over there.
I wore my cut off Dickies today,it was that warm.
All those Euro cars have like an acute angle starting from the left to the right.
A German exchange student last year said our public transit system here sucks.
Nice Pompadour. The poor twisted Ed,November spawned a Templeton.
I've shot BB Guns and Arrows at some fairs before. Maybe LA liberal communist land wants to take my Jesus and Guns away.
There was this ride with like Chola ladies with Fedoras,but that future sex slave-bot is pretty cool. I the year 2000,robots will have orgasms.
I thought that carrot looked like a dick too when I saw it. My brain is broken.

why would one buy your books when they can just download your life straight off this blog?

"There was almost some nudity for you little horn-dogs, but I was too late. Sorry."

HAHA! Yo, you're calling us horn-dogs? You're the one who shot the picture haha.

Too many mini-vans. What's going on over there?
Is your shoe called the Archer because you're a master Archer?

I wore my cut-offs, too. Donny Barley's pro-pant, now short-shorts for Jacob.

Biking is awesome anywhere.
Europeans just know what's up.

I want to show you my latest roll.
Very pleased with it.

I hope Thomas didn't get any cotton candy on his stache.

I miss you guys.
I don't have a computer anymore.
& I have a job. So, no time.
& I banged my knee up on some stupid ledge.

I also have a little bone to pick with someone...

I bought a Toy board last month, & it started delaminating a few days ago. Bummed the fuck out.
Luckily, I bought the one year warranty, so..

Here comes a candle to light you to bed-
Here comes a chopper to chop off your head.

Q: why would one buy your books when they can just download your life straight off this blog?

A: Because the books are not crappy digi-photos, they are carefully selected photographs and artwork put together in book form for your viewing pleasure.

Jacob, If you have de-lam and it's a manufacturer's defect, then you should get a replacement deck. (We do get a lot of people sending us their broken boards claiming defect though, when it was clearly some kid landing on his board from a 10-stair drop directly in the middle of the deck. That is not the manufacturers' fault.)
Posted By: ed on May 30th, 2010 at 03:31AM PST
Ed you should come out with toy skaters/ daily commenter collab decks.
Also I was reading the skate mag and in an interview with Alex Olson he said that he wanted to be on Toy, give him a call and tell him he's on the team.
Posted By: john on May 30th, 2010 at 10:11AM PST
Speaking of Alex Olson, his photography website is real good.
http://www.noretrospective.com/343773/Alex-Olson

Alex Olson and BA are my favorite dudes on Girl,wouldn't mind them switching to Toy.

Jacob
It's been lonely here,without you.
Good luck at your job.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on May 30th, 2010 at 12:02PM PST
toy doesn't have any NYC skaters does it (im outta the loop)?
Posted By: vinny on May 30th, 2010 at 12:16PM PST
Alex Olson on Toy???
You guys are nuts...

Urban Outfitters & Forever 21 would be selling Toy product if he was on the team. He's the more popular Reider.

Ed, a new deck would be awesome!
It's de-lamming around the nose area, & it's a clear one.

How does one send a board to a manufacturer?

JGonz, Hearts, all day.
Thank you.
Posted By: Jacob on May 30th, 2010 at 02:11PM PST
Hey,I like Dylan Rieder too...

Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 don't exist where I live,yet.
I guess Heath Kirchart and Spanky are other dudes that have been rumored to switch to Toy.
I'm down with all those dudes being on Toy.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on May 30th, 2010 at 03:28PM PST
Alex was already on Toy before he was on Girl...

I tried to get Spanky, but he chose something else.
Heath, it never worked out.

Toy Machine Dream Team
Posted By: vinny on May 30th, 2010 at 06:43PM PST
Dream team indeed.

I like the team as it is, though.
It's super mellow & no one's too different.
You guys all have ties.
Yet, everyone is completely different.
That's the perfect team.

What's Heath's deal?
He seems like a recluse.

In a Simpsons episode, Homer & Marge were walking down a boardwalk or a main street & there was a Turban Outfitters. It was funny.

Those stores rule Orange County. Talking 2 story buildings... & every girl looks the same. But I can't talk shit, because I look like every other hipster around. haha.

Talk to Devin about hipsters.

Yay's for not making any sense...

Fuck me..

I saw Carolyn at albertsons Jacob.

I've heard nothing good about Orange County.
Is anyone here from the Bay? Then there'd be dudes from all over CA here.
The mall where I live is slowly dying. An adjacent town has banned corporations from franchising.Speaking of shit, I heard the media manipulated the stockmarket because Americans listen too much to cable news channel so they have a lot of influence on our stock market. They can fear monger only so much for entertainment, so things are made up and a chain reaction starts. Consumption cycle is broken them it stops our economy and shit. So tv will take down
capitalism, a biporduct of itself. start growing your rice and beans when the system crashes. I reminded myself of a crass song.

Ed,pick up Jrog and Lutzka. Sell your company then retire on your beloved Catalina island and have private Morrissey shows at your "crib".
Posted By: Jgonzalez on May 30th, 2010 at 10:24PM PST
That's funny to hear Devin.

JGonz, well said.
I was watching Fox news last night & they did an interview & 10 minute segment on a new iPhone app called "Tiger Text". Basically, it deletes your dirty text messages to your mistress. So you can cheat & get away with it. Hence the name. That's news? They talked about the gulf oil spill for 45 seconds. Not only that, the middle-aged women who I remember looking like soccermoms, now have huge tits, hip hair styles, & use the lingo of a 16 year-old girl.

Punk as fuck.

I like NPR,BBC,and Keet for news and stuff. I read that the Border is actually as guarded as it always has been. There has been an increase in Border patrol even in the Obama administration. But I guess it's more harder-core than thou Right Winged promises to have troops deployed to really get that job "done". Like Bush didn't spend taxpayer dollars. No matter what president that was going to go in last election they were going to get shit on because of this economy. A Republican agenda would cut taxes and government revenue would go down and widen the Social class gap and a Democrat agenda would just spend money and further our debt. So that's the question of either saving your pennies or spending money to make money.

What's scary is that shit about Bringing Texas' education criteria into the "middle".
I still don't get what a Liberal Bias is in Education. Isn't Education supposed to teach people to question shit?

Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin,and Ann Coulter. Gross.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on May 31st, 2010 at 12:17PM PST
I went to a Sigur Ros show a year back, & some dude had a shirt that said "SARAH PALIN IS A CUNT". It was beautiful.

JGonz, your knowledge is respected.
Keep on my son.
Posted By: Jacob on May 31st, 2010 at 01:19PM PST
The only thing good about Sarah Palin is that she's a MILF.

Thanks.
I browse the internet too much..
