A day out with the bros...

Went shredding with the guys for the first time in what seems like forever.
"From whence arrived the praying mantis? From outer space, or lost Atlantis? Glimpse the grin, green metal mug at masks the pseudo-saintly bug, Orthopterous, also carnivorous, And faintly whisper, Lord deliver us" –Ogden Nash
Grant likes poems about Prayin' Mantis's. His better half Ashley B. has a blog too.
Found a kid with a Billy Marks board to go up to and freak out.

Better than having it rain.

Since it rained I had to have gym in the "Fitness center" today. Someone played Black Hole Sun on the radio and I began to sing. Everyone looked at me like what the fuck.

Ed you should have your own promo video.

I hurd u LIke impossibles. So U impossibled,over dylan rieder,impossibling, over Geoff rowley impossibling.

Vinny,that's why my Ex gf's dad got a Mantis tattoo. He made a kid,got married. then got divorced too quickly. You know,metaphors.

Thanks,Fresh, for proving me wrong with that Mexican Vegan link. Isn't Mexicali pretty Americanized though?

Ed,pwetty pwease. Get some Brainwash footy. Even if it's mainly you cruising or just doing some lines.
At least put it in the bonus section the DVD.

I saw a guy like last month with that Board. Or one from that series. He was like holding his girlfriend and walking around.
Did that kid recognize you as being the Man responsible for that board?

Is it healthy to gauge your happiness by how many comments you get?

speaking of Everyday. I went to go buy those re-issues of Everyday is like Sunday. And I guess I can only buy them online. I got a little angry since I walked all the way to the record store then had to walk all the way back. Way to go,Morrissey.
I think this shit's only available in England too. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

I didn't want to fuck with the Royal Mail or anything. But I think I'm going to have to..

It's 11 dollars American for the CD single and Both Vinyl issues here:

I'm going to buy it from that site.Like 20 dollars all together, Since they're all bundled together and that website ships internationally.

Oh, and I'm Throwing my Arms around Paris single is only 5 dollars on sale here:
I'm gonna get that too. Death of a Disco Dancer on the B-side!!

I usually just walk to the record store so I can stand in the basement listening to used records for hours on end. Sometimes I bring a little speedball razorblade and open the new releases and listen to those as well. they have this quad vinyl set of Goo and I was stoked, but I don't want to pay over sixty dollars for it regardless of how cool it is.

I have never seen a praying mantis IRL. are they dangerous to touch? do they pinch you with their little pincher things? I was recently asked about some famous artists that I thought were inspirational and I started talking about Ed and how much I feel there is a disassociation with what people percieve as "good". I can't explain really well here because I have things going on all around me. I hate having to squeeze in my time between classes but at least I have a sense of well being in a world where I see more than a fair share of people whom have nothing much to live for except bragging rights on who has what iPhone and what kind of car they are driving. One thing that I am proud of; is the fact that i use to loathe these people to the point of frustration and anger. Now I just feel bad for them and their inability to act human.

word up diggity!
I feel like eds art is the future.Decades from now people are gonna be looking at it like the way we look at van gogh.Of course we will all be dead.But what do I know Im just a some dude.

I don't think there will ever be another great artist or musician. There will be in my opinion but modern ways of life don't give a fuck about art, and there are to many different genres of music for there to be another great band or something.

Hello ed. Here is a comment to liven your day.
Posted By: Robert on September 27th, 2010 at 02:36PM PST
I love praying mantises. I doodle them all the time when I'm bored haha. Did that kid even know who you were? I feel like you never get recognized, unless its by other people in the skate scene or commenters, like when Hemlock Drew saw you at the airport. Grant's left hand is in a really strange pose.

JGonz- I went to the library yesterday and got some CDs. One of which is Bona Drag, I had no idea they were re-releasing it. I have the old one right now haha.
Posted By: Mike on September 27th, 2010 at 05:32PM PST
Picadilly Palare.
Play that one loud.

What Library is that from? School or City?
I bought the old Bona Drag at a thrift store for 1 dollar. It's cool 'cause I'm gonna buy the new one on Vinyl when it's released.
Oct 4th.
And I just bought those Everyday is like Sunday singles. And the This Charming Man reissue 7-inch.for £10.98 and the Throwing My arms around Paris single too.
God i'm a nerd..
Posted By: Jgonzalez on September 27th, 2010 at 05:50PM PST
I will. It's actually a town library that happens to be the high school's library also.
Posted By: Mike on September 27th, 2010 at 07:29PM PST
that kid holding the board, so mexican.
shit, "hispanics" in cali look more mexican than we do.
its funny, their "skater" image is so cliche, i bet he's letting that hair and scumstache grow, with the beanie, thight jeans, and loose t-shirt with some shitty "metal" band. almost like that wassup rockers flick but only in real life, sadder, and without bangin the white girls part.
ok, no more DO'S and DONT's from vice for me.
