Images to soothe your soul

Some images from all over time and space.
The beach and the glory of the meeting of sea and earth.
Over 15 years ago...
Amanda posing for a painting.
Lance Mountain has a blog.
Stacey Swift, Deanna, Juliette, Koston, Berra, and I forget his name.
And now with Ty Evans...
Erik Ellington at a party in San Diego, a long time ago.

[Doug comes into the Sidewinder without a shirt on]
Doug: What's up, Josh? Give me two packs of cigarettes today. Working overtime: Sixteen hours.
[Puts malt liquir bottle on the counter]
Doug: And nature's nectar, wake-up juice. And give me six of these beef jerkys. I'm hungry enough to chew the crotch out of a rag doll.
[Sidewinder Boss spots him]
Sidewinder Boss: Hey. Hey. How many times do I have to tell you? No shirt, no service. Get the hell out of my store. What do you think this is, Club Med?
Doug: It's called America, dude. Learn the rules.
Sidewinder Boss: "Learn the rules?" No, YOU learn the rules. We Greeks invented democracy.
Doug: You also invented homos.
Sidewinder Boss: Fuck you.
Doug: You wish. You gotta buy me dinner first.

(I wonder why he hasn't done it then - and try to sell it in the process.)

Posted October 19th, 2010 by When you finish something a deep pit appears or not.
how do you always get a flying bird in your shot?!

finished something? what could it be? ...its the destination, not the journey.

the sock team has to be the most embarassing of your links. for us, mostly, not for you. how does it feel to know that all the sarcastic marketing techniques of the toy machine blood sucking skateboard co have actually paid off. its crazy, that those persons critical of our consumer culture can actually run successful businesses.

"the beginning of the Jim Greco we know and love today" I honestly felt like he resonated with me in my younger days but I look at him now and sometimes I kind of feel sad for some reason. I still think he rips but yeah. It must have been wild to be able to hang out with people like that when they were blowing up. Erik Ellington doesn't give a fuck that's why he walks around with a blindfold on BS NOSEBLUNT EL TORO BLIND BITCHES! BOLTS

Julliet's shirt looks like it's being pulled down by Stacey, but then I realized it's the way the fabric is cut.

Ok well I have to ski daddle. SKI. DAZZLE!

I´m not wanting to look like someone I can´t describe in the english language and I don´t know if the regular peeps here, leave comments on deanna´s blog or if it´s a silent appreciation with some compliments about her work here, but I really have to say that I really like and enjoy her work and blog.

I just checked the last post .It´s interesting to see pictures
familiar to Ed´s/yours, obviously cause they/you share the situation, but the difference in the way moments and situations are captured.Deanna´s pictures seem always very tidy(?) and elegant.Very nice.

Maybe I´m to shy to tell her, so maybe she follows this blog.

I can go for some Soul Soothing.

The sock team blog, embarrassing? What is this..I don't even...
What's there to be embarrassed about unless you're not comfortable with yourself?
Anyway, that blog needs more comments.

I've thought about Toy Machine's advertisements. Since we were analyzing ads in my Psych class. So many ads are easy to skip over. Logo, Sequence, photo of Rider, featured product. Or even Zero ads,a photo and font(sorry Jamie).

Is this Lance Mountain Jr. or Sr.'s blog?
Either way, this weird John Lydon shirt is pretty cool.
I would buy it.
I'm now following that blog.

Nice Buttocks on Amanda.

I guess Berra is getting all the bad attention for having The Berrics. I guess that's what he does now since Koston is still out shredding and collecting those Nike Corpo Checks. Maybe he'll get a private jet.

Greco has gone from Leather Jacket punk, to Glam, drugs, now he seems like he's reached equilibrium.

That building looks like a guitar.

I wonder what's going to happen to my blog when I die. Or when I'll quit, or when this blog will cease. Since everything eventually ends.

That is nice S van, you can comment on her site! She loves getting comments! It lets us know that people are looking.

I will, thanks Ed.

embarassing? a little bit, when you consider our self-dedication and allegiance to a sole skateboard company whose main advertising and marketing technique is a critique on those individuals who are blindly led into consuming a product based on image. albeit, the entire thing is a joke, from the advertisements to our blog and allegiance. but still...

conspiracy. i think ed works for the illuminati

Dear Mr. Templetpon,
i would really enjoy you being guest speaker at CSULBs art program because the majority of the artist that come speak are way too intellectual and i think someone needs to come shake things up a bit around here and remind people why we create art in the first place.

I would love to talk at your college.

This post hit the fucking spot haha. If that makes any sense. I bet you're glad Brainwash is over. I saw that you guys added a southwest tour......please come somewhere close to New York hahah. I'l fucking be there....and so will lots of other people. Plus, I need to see Brainwash. Speaking of which, will that be available for sale? I will you give you some money for it $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Oh and I was super psyched on the Ghost World quote. I love that movie and that's a funny part haha. Also, I watched your House Call at thrasher.....fucking awesome haha. I especially enjoyed the fact that the background music was that teach me how to dougie song. Ridiculous haha. I happened to notice a nice baby blue fender mustang bass. Who plays, you or Deanna? or nobody? haha and one more question, but no pressure to answer this one or any other ones I may have asked. Do you have a new shoe coming out ?

I think the sock team is a hit.MAybe not that much now.But If we keep it up long enough I think kids will catch on.I think that there is nothing to be embarassed about Especially when we are supporting such a great thing like toy machine.
