At the elephant watering hole. We ditched our "escort," much to his dismay, and rented a car and took off to go experience South Africa on our own. This was Addo Elephant Park, north of Port Elizabeth.
this was in an old 411 i think... and they had a minor threat song or two for the segment. thats how i heard minor threat for the first time.

seeing elephants in person is very cool, but it must have been doubly as cool out in the savanna type setting. I have only seen them in zoos and I always feel bad for animals in zoos so then I regret going. while I was riding up to see the Toy Machine demo I stopped to look at a zoo since I was making such good time. My friends were having an awesome experience and I was bumming out like halfway through. Party pooper. but then I got to see Ed and they were bummed, so it all works out.
I was thinking to myself "oh. these pics must be from when it was TV, not Toy." but then immediately, a picture of Mike V in a Black Label t-shirt.
Did you guys have to get immunization shots before going to South Africa? I keep thinking of huge needles in the butt cheek. ow

Hmm..it's pretty late right now for me leaving a comment time.
But don't worry,guys.
Someone must be a fan for a Bury the Hatchet board to be breaking news.
I think them making out would be more controversial. And have Jesus be black,and filling out papers for a Government Obamacare approved abortion.
I like this one the most:
I've never known you've been to Africa.
There aren't many reports on this blog coming in from China. Toy Machine/The Templeton's art needs to infect the far east.
In that link, you talk about the whole "Skate artist" thing. To me, it doesn't really mean an "Skate Artist" is any lesser.If anything, an artist that Skateboards seems more appealing to me, since the art is more relatable on that level. But I guess I can see how being labeled only a "Skate Artist" could be bad for your career. All your hard work to just be related to a Wooden toy with four wheels. LOLOL.
Whatever,people love your work. Don't worry.
Yeah,dan. Zoo's bum me out too. It's an animal in a habitat that isn't ideal. And on top of that they're trapped and have to do things when a Human says it's ok. Then again, I guess we're enslaved to our society/money as well, if you want to get all BF Skinner about it.
And what Ed said about being afraid of being out in nature. It's funny, because when I'm ever in the forest at night or somewhere kinda off the grid. I feel a little uneasy. But then remember "I'm an animal too. I live on this world too." but I'm afraid of other animals and only feel safe when those four walls are around me with a light inside.
Good job on the bold font advertising Deanna's show. My Psych Professor is named Deanna too. Cool coincidence.
Skull Blender sounds like a cheesy metal song.

being the successful artist that you are today, do you ever think about what type of artist you would be or how it would affect your style now if you went to art school?

But I can't worry about it too much, because it's not going to happen. I am what I am, without the school. I think it would have been fun, and I bet I would have learned a lot, but also I could have been taught the same as everyone else and not be doing anything different.

Do you prefer school?
I'd rather learn as much as I can about something on my own.
Discovering little things about what you love is one of the best feelings, but I never feel that way in a class (unless the subject is interesting to me). I figure an AA looks better on applications & resumes.
Carolyn's oldest brother was kind enough to rent us their office in Costa Mesa. I feel so much better already. Internet (so I won't miss these posts), a bed & a room with a bathroom. I don't know how much rent is yet...
As for these photos, they are some of my favorite.
The one of the guy with the two pistols is fucking radical.
Who is that? That Dawes guy?
Fuck the dog parks all around Orange County, it's about elephant parks.
Africa has the right idea.
Mike V. is a man's man.
Did you cry when they were shooting at the bird?
Just playing, I would too.
