Text Post from Italy - Part 1

 OK, so for some reason I can't upload photos from these ghetto-ass computers in Italy, and I can't find a connection for my computer. (although I have not tried too hard, since I expect my hotel connection to work usually. And I have a lot of work to do here.) So I will just do some text posts, some free-form prose if you will...



If I were to post a photo from Nuoro right now, I would post one of me in front of those "Smart Cars" that the museum gave us to use while we are here. It is orange and black and has "MAN museo" stickers all over it. We look like freaks driving around, and every beggar knows exactly what car to come up to to ask for money. Anyway, I look quite silly in this car.



The days are hot and sweaty, but luckily for us the museum has quite healthy air conditioning, enough to make us a little cold. But all we need to do is step outside to get a blast of raw heat. I gotta go, the security gaurd is kicking me out...

Vinny the witty.

Ed, this is so cute. Substance in text on the internet is awesome.

When I see Smart cars in Orange County, I wanna piss on whose ever head is driving.

Lol nice txt msg.
Blog it like it's 1997.
Telegram from Edourd Von Templetin.your evil Euro clone. That loves barbecues and fights at Futbol games.
Ghetto computers? sorry Mr.American. We don't just throw our trash in the ocean like you and buy another.Italy told me to tell you that.

My post is bigger then yourrrs,nyeah neyah!!..
I read that consumer report about Smart Cars.Not very smart,it says.Plus you look "hella gay" in it,apparently.

You made me think of some lyrics:"I'm only a beggar-man whom nobody owns "

Isn't the Mediterranean like one of the nicest places in the world? Live it up in ancient ass vacation grounds. Southern france,Brah.
Sitting in your own ball soup isn't fun. Where I live,it never gets that warm. So my nuts totally de-thaw when I get passed Ukiah CA and enter the bay area and below. My nuts sag all over the place.

I just google mapped your shit:

You're on a fucking island? Lucky. I'm gonna start buying boards from another compnay,you're having TOO much fun,brudda. Jk. I kid.

I was clicking around the map,I see there's a place called Bologna...make a porno,get dudes off the street to bone some girl. Call it "Bologna Boys". Dude,the acting in those porno movies where they supposedly pick girls up off the street are pretty bad. You know they know what's going to happen.

When I google mapped it all I saw was white vans. I think you attract less attention than all the child molesters in the streets.

You do have too much fun. You could get a T.V. show on discovery about how you travel the world. But then it would seem boring because travel shows suck.

Wait, this is the first time it says posted by ed, and not something weird like posted by Meg White contracted genital warts from Sting.

You should slap a bunch of Toy stickers on that shitty car you gotta drive.

I agree with the use of stickers on the smart car. good choices while away, leave impressions that will stay.

I kinda like the fact that you're posting text only now. It feels like you're in like an allied war camp and times are tough. By "times are tough" I mean " awesome and totally fucking raw vacation over in the Mediterranean".

Guess I never thought about this, but with all your traveling you must get sick air miles. Does Deanna ever come on Toy tours? Probably not, but that would be something.

Today I got to see Reda for the first time. He's not an asshole after all he's super chill as all hell. Eagerly awaiting sweet photos. Even if it is post-trip photos.

Well, time to take a shit. Word.

Yaa, you must have so many fucking air miles your about to get a free airplane.

Saw the pics of Jason Acuna at Jokers the other day. Do you guys just randomly have pros stop in and hang out or are there purposes to these visits. Plus I guess I really wouldn't understand because the only time I get to see any pros skating is at demos or through the magical light box in my living room.

Yesterday I saw Kerry Getz skating with some other people at a Matix demo. It was really surreal talking to him. He was brutally honest about the Toy Machine dilema and everything. He gave me free Matix sunglasses. Word.

Also- you should try and get Ed on the Devo blog. Does he ever chill at Jokers? Doubtful with his large array of things to do and places to see. However if he shows up get that camera ready.

when I say "Toy Machine dilema" I mean "Kerry Getz quitting Toy Machine". and yes. That is a dilema because I think he's great. I miss the old Toy lineups at times.

I miss the line-up as well. Satva, BA, Maldonaldo, miss 'em..
But the line-up now is great as well. Mostly the humbles.

Jokers only gets wash-up skaters.. Just kidding.
Devin skates with Lance jr, & I'm pretty sure his dad.
I've tried to be friends with Devin. He only wanted it over the web.

My book deformer was published in Bologna and I spent a week there, in 2008. Thanks for all the comments dudes!

Irony, Ed.
You probably hate bologna.

It's true, Diggity.

Can you write two memoirs?

I meant to type 0r that's what HE said as a double entendre to "bolgna" and "you only want it over the internet".... yeah. I suck.

I have Ed Tempster feebs back finally. The kind you hang on just barely on the truck and your board is so tweaked it makes all the soccer moms rip their shirts off in lust at the local skate park. Yeah. It's like that.

Also- stoked to have seen a plethora of cool ass pros and ams come through my area which is awesome. I have been very grateful. I hope Ed decides to come here again but NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT with a Zumiez Jizz tour or whatever they call it. Gotta pay the bills though.

I heard that some pros are going to need second jobs, is this true? Also- read the Billabong incident. I don't think it bears significance on the current state of affairs. Burton owning Alien? Billabong owning Toy? bah humbug. Just opens more doors for distribution and I think they need that right now considering how many people are buying blanks or whatever and they need to pay rent too!

Um...I like sherbert ice cream. If you smoke a cigarette after you drink Pepto Bismal you will get a black tongue. It's pretty cool. Except by "pretty cool" I mean "totally fucking lame as all hell and looks like you might have a cancerous Dan Drehobl tongue".
Posted By: d1ggitydan on July 19th, 2010 at 04:09PM PST
Pepto can give you the black tongue without the ciggie.
Bologna, baloney is really gross. Not the city.
Deformer is a great book and I have perused it on the bowl frequently.
Next time I'll upload some photos for the blog and pretend they're ed's. Or just have jgonz do it.
