One of those Zumiez Couch Tours... (
I'm just photo-dumping all my photos on here for your veiwing pleasure. For you, it's like being a fly on the wall, or in the van, with the RVCA team...
SEE RVCA's bLOG POST
about this same trip.
Little Italy, NYC. Some Italian place Jimmy loves. Rodent was in the city and hooked up with us.
Harmony has 2 kids now.
There is so much love to be spread.
Leo texts me photos of his dick
Me and Stu.
Better shot of Stu.
This is getting gratuitous... Oh well.
Flying over the America.
Flying into New York city...
Driving into the city, the first glimpse of the Empire State...
We tried to get Julian and David to "Lady and the Tramp
" it. They wussed.
Jimmy was bummed they were out of steak. So went with the veal. Don't have the mom? I'll take the kid.
It was Stu's first time to NYC, but not Spanky's.
The old guy area.
Our hotel in New Jersey was in a pretty nice spot...
The van was bursting at the seems with RVCA riders.
Jimmy fantasizes about having a schlong this big, and this high up on his chest too. But mostly so he can lick it himself, and not for any other reasons.
They had iced towels in the VIP tent for us. How nice.
And free stuff that aside from liquids and a few snacks, none of us needed.
This was before the demo even started. Here is the footage of the DEMO.
I took a walk around the Couch Tour event to see what was happening.
I think the Skull Candy people were torturing kids for free prizes. Man, the things people will do in this recession for a free sticker.
There was some element of perversion in this, or is that just me?
Bumming: all that dancing and gunk and you lost.
You have to wash yourself in a toilet after too.
The signing, where we signs stuff and some security guard yells at kids who try to get more than 2 things signed. Really? Kids wait in line for two hours and they can't even get more than the poster and something else signed? Most of them don't know who any of us are anyway. You have to be on Fuel TV or the Berrics to be known by a kid these days.
This is frequent commenter on this blog and Loyal Pawn, Mike.
Boxers. Reminds me of Deanna when I first met her, but that was back in 1987 or so, and she didn't have a bathing suit on underneath 'em.
Look what I can do with my face!
That "make your mouth look like a pussy" thing will be a hit when you get to prison.
Lurking the streets of NYC after our demo.
Came across a pack of rabid fans by chance, so we jumped out of the van to see what was happening. Apparently actor Sean Hayes
, was interacting with his people
, who were singing him Happy Birthday. Jimmy has a better shot, I'm sure you'll see it on the RVCA blog
Stu, Jimmy, and Harmony are repping Dave Letterman.
This kid was tripping on Leo.
Harmony had a pal in NYC...
Stu fanned out on 30 Rock center...
And we hit up the Seinfeld
The inside was way different.
Back to the hotel in Queens.
I call this piece, "Untitled (blue carpet w/ red lines)"
My B&W are back but not scanned, wehn I get back from my Toy Machine demo in Minneapolis
, I'll get on it.
