Stay Gold Premiere

While everyone is still partying into the night, I'm home blogging.

Jetski had a van laoded with Pabst. I don't think this beer even stratched the surface.

Jetski and Bizarro Jetski.

The calm before the storm. Timothy has a moment before the carnage in the maze of chambers underneath the John Anson Ford Theater.

Heath was also roaming the under-realm.
7089img3569.JPG
And was already pre-drunk.

Ran into Marquis, who was carrying a comb for those moments when his 2 millimeter long hair would get messed up.

Jerry Hsu is a very nice boy. His girl Cat is also very nice.

Ran into a new Loyal Pawn and web commenter ready to be OUTED! He had his sect socks on and in different colors!

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet "Fresh from Mex."

Even Billy was impressed.

Spanky was trapped by...

I always liked Erik E. He's a cool dude.
7089img3582.JPG
Spanky signed Billy Marks' hand and didn't even know it. You always look at who you are signing.
7089img3583.JPG
Israel showed up again!
7089img3584.JPG
What happens in here I wonder?
7089img3589.JPG
Bands played to footage of orgies.
7089img3590.JPG
People going crazy for Leo Romero!
7089img3594.JPG
People going crazy for Andrew Reynolds!

Johnny amped to go SKATE!

Leo getting mobbed.

One of the hero's of the night, or better yet YEAR, Leo Romero, along with another epic skateboarder, B. Herman.
Then I was off to the freeway after watching some pee-pee action.

Posted August 18th, 2010 by I watched model Erin Wasson take a piss
OMG Fresh from Mex!!!!!!!!!!
Posted By: Jgonzalez on August 18th, 2010 at 01:31AM PST
hopefully dbriggs filmed the premiere on his iphone and posted it on his website devinbriggs.com. actually, ill probably end up buying this anyways.

thats cool that you got to draw all over a picture of a naked model that you later got to watch urinate. the next step in the same direction is something that only jgonz can imagine (and write about properly) on this blog. ill leave it up to him to describe the scenario...

YESSSSSSSSSSSS
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on August 18th, 2010 at 07:42AM PST
So,anyway.I commented last night on a mobile device,so my comment was short. But Fresh has one of the best pawn smiles.

Isn't PBR like trying to cash in on skateboarding?Not as bad as some energy drink bogus Xtremem shit. But then again, drunk guys aren't cool either. I guess that's how you'd get into a clip in a Thrasher video or something,drinkin' beers.

Heath looks like a grey alien in that photo,AWS? Oh yeah,I finally watched mindfield. What surprised me was Josh Kalis' part was actually pretty good. I haven't seen any rap in skate videos in a while, also Death Metal.

Jerry,buddy holly. Nice,nice,nice,nice.

Was Fresh wearing Gravis shoes?

Billy's flannel looks like some pajamas I have. The patter is making my eyes all weird like his skin is jerking around or something.

Looks like the skate world had a major raging boner last night.And Leo was the climax,spreading his amazing skate maneuvers on the faces of everyone.

Ed,get ready for Leo's soty commemorative board, that shit's gonna sell and be in virtually every shop along with maybe some more Toy gear from jackoff shops that don't usually carry Toy Machine.$$$

Where was D-Briggs?
Ha,iPhone recording.

Watching a supermodel urinate? The most beautiful of woman shit too,no a-hole is safe no matter who it's attached to.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on August 18th, 2010 at 09:29AM PST
Fresh you have a beautiful smile. Mix match socks, I do it too.

I need to buy it, ugh.
Posted By: john on August 18th, 2010 at 11:24AM PST
That was cool that Conan O'Brien came to interview Spanky.
Posted By: Eggs McManus on August 18th, 2010 at 02:51PM PST
congrats to Leo and Ed!

also; Rats off to ya. if you know, then you know.

I admire Toy Machine. It will start getting bigger and there will be a huge influx of people getting into Toy Machine.

I was laughing at Ed on Thrasher promoting the Stay Gold "coffee table book". it was so funny. "you score credit with your girlfriend. you score credit with your mom..." still makes me laugh.

I might be able to skateboard soon but the sad thing is, school starts next week for me at community college.... which I think is kinda rad because I see everyone else on here is going to community college.... or like a few of you. I also think its kinda sad because I'm 24 so that's like being 56 in skate years. And Ed would be a mummy except for the fact that he STILL. RIPS. SO. HARD.

I can't wait til I can see Stay Gold.
Posted By: d1ggitydan on August 19th, 2010 at 06:08AM PST
fresh is back in mex.. mission accomplished!
shit, so much happened that night and such limited is my vocabulary.
good thing i just promised a video review to vinny, that'll help keep my post focused on one idea rather than getting side tracked on the awesome memories, emotions, sightings, talks, and lurkage lived.
Emerica Stay fucking gold, the editing and artsy stuff is really similar to this is skateboarding except for the scribble font instead of regular font, and everything has a touch of psychedelia.
In a very toymachine good and evil fashion with ed (btw youre an angelic man), heath kirchart has the very first part before the intro even starts. Old footy from his early foundation days to this is skateboading is edited to open his part which was kinda short but hes got aces under the sleeve and his last trick is totally unexpected and brilliant.
Brandon Wastgate = mega pop, super fucking fast, and a 20 second run going downhill. now i feel like a little girl when i bitch about the rough streets..he doesnt have a prob AT ALL ripping tre flips on shitty surfaces.
Aaron Suski delivers Suski style; all terrain shreddage and i think its the best part in his career.
Marquis Preston skates beautiful, he reminded me so much of A-Stone's smoothness. definitely the new upcoming hot kid and rightfully so.
I thought Tancowny's part would be mellow after his monstrous Zero ender..but oh surprise was i totally wrong. that little canuck fucker delivers HAMMERS, totally a rail muncher that won't slow down along with steezy kickflips, backside heels, and probably a leap of faith-esqe ollie thatll blow your _______.
Toy Machine embassador Collin Provost. If you look up in the dictionary "skateboarder", collin's image should show up next to the term. he's rockn'roll. He fully embodies the concept of a true skater. Modest. sounds cheezy but the dude looks COOL cruising around and tranny flying. He skates it all that can be skated and kills it while enjoying it.
Spanky spanky spanky spanky. dude ripped and showed the world his handrail/stairs skills in this is skateboarding, now he rips new horizons like ditches, pole jams, hills, and so much fun looking stuff he makes look so easy and skate-infecting...he reminds you skateboarding is all about the fucking good times without the need of killing yo' self.
But the people wanna see blood, and blood is delivered with Figgy's total destruction. This part turned him pro, thatll give you an idea how hard it went.
Hermans first minute is all school bench harrassment at a popular LA school. Honestly, his whole part there wouldve been enough for the vid. Dude skates SO effortless, it is all eye candy.. then the real fucking deal slaps you in the face when his REAL part starts. all i got to say as a skater and atheist is "oh my god".
Braydon, like his Braydon style parts, is kinda short but heavy! dudes got flair for days, totally a shredder/rockstar.
Hsu! poor dude has the gnarliest bails, slams for days, his pain is instantly felt to all through his facial gestures and screams. A minute later of torture he delivers an all killer no filler skate action part. Who skates ditches switch? Hsu does.
LEO ROMERO. all the hype, there's a reason to that hype. He is all that hype. he the word GNARLY personified. he is STAY GOLD. Leo has placed himself and welcomed up there amongst the skate legends realm. hes got that lust for fear and the scary..all that REAL MEN type of shit.
he murders rails, gap to rails, ledges, gap to ledges, slides where one would normally hit with a grind and grinds where one would normally slide. but leo is no normal being. i mean, who skates UP a rail? no no, i mean, who the fuck skates up HANDRAILS? shit, i havent even gotten out of his handrail shreddage, ill leave you the non-handrail stuff to your eyeballs.
Andrew Reynolds. The Boss. An already OG legend now crowned God. HOLY FUCK of a last part. No words.

vinny, im sorry dude but this video met beyond all the expectations.
stay gold motherfuckers.

Ya, you are.
Posted By: john on August 19th, 2010 at 07:10PM PST
Doesn't Reynolds do rails and shit? I'mma wanna see that.

Aaron Suski only got one sentence description.
and Ed Templeton's part? Please have a part in Brainwash...we're all begging at your ankles. I don't care if it's park footy or your front yard, mini ramp.

d1ggity, it's never too late to go back to school.
What are you studying?
Posted By: Jgonzalez on August 19th, 2010 at 07:43PM PST
Once the movie was over I wanted to skate really bad but I didn't bring my board. Heath's little part thing in the beginning was the biggest tease ever. I was very bummed to find out Ed didn't have a part besides those couple tricks after the credits. Collin's part was actually my favorite.

graphic art. people kept telling me I was "talented naturally" and pushing me to go so now I"m going.

talking baby wizard on acid conjuring ideas out of nowhere. making emotion tangible and stuff.

I use to do promotional work in the city I lived in but then I flipped out and moved up here.
Posted By: d1ggitydan on August 20th, 2010 at 06:23AM PST
I don't really like watching people do rails. Every once in a while but I'm not to big on it.

Someone requested me on facebook, and her last name was Briggs and she looked just like Devin.

MIKE! I was just gonna say that my computer is fucked and I might not be able to comment until I fix it or get a new one. Weird. So, I may talk to you guys tomoorow or maybe not for a few weeks. Bye.
Posted By: john on August 21st, 2010 at 11:13AM PST
I don't have a part, sorry everyone.
Posted By: ed on August 22nd, 2010 at 12:51AM PST
Ed, that fucking sucks...

Hey everyone! Back from SF.

Love the last few posts. Totally missed some good comment time.

I'll eventually look up Stay Gold on the internet & most likely just watch the whole thing on Youtube.

Everyone should visit SF all of the time, but never live there. It gets to be expensive, tiring, & dull if you're not 21.
I also smoked more weed in a week than Tommy Chong has in his life...

Fresh, you look like my cousin, Chui.

Isn't Jerry Hsu's girl pregos?
She's cute. Hipster baby.

Are you wearing a Thrasher long sleeve shit?

Erin Wasson is really good looking.
But why are you watching women pee now?

Mike! Hey buddy! Noticed you were gone for a while...

It sucks missing these posts... You miss so much, & you wanna go back & comment on everything but it would just take too long.
Posted By: Jacob on August 22nd, 2010 at 11:02AM PST
What, your not gonna have a part, boner kill.

Youtube, that's how I watched every toy machine video.
