sometimes I want a flatscreen LCD TV. then I remember I haven't watched television for almost three years. Only if it's on at someone's house or something and even then I can't stand to watch it.

I always take what Freud has said with a very large grain of salt due to the fact that he was a rabid coke fiend. He had some interesting points, and most crazy people usually have the best picture in mind. Just not all the time.

"No reasonable offer refused". Offer a wish, even if that wish is for more wishes. They can't refuse that now can they? CAN THEY?!

One thing I have been meaning to ask but more than likely won't receive an answer on, is; Since Geoff Rowley has been taking so much heat lately and having people leave FLIP (or RE join in Arto's case) there's all this drama and stuff, yes, but then I started thinking like how Toy Machine had some of the same shit going on where BA left and Getz and Maldanado and stuff. Is Rowley taking it hard and having lots of talking time with Ed or is he taking it in stride and doesn't really care because he's already led a legacy? I was just wondering that since Ed always seems to hang with him.

And Steve Olsen? wowie! I think it's funny seeing Alex and his dad in interviews it's like you practically have to pay Alex just to sit in the same room as Steve lol does anyone know what I mean?

alrighty have to go

have a fun trip Ed!
Posted By: mario perez on January 6th, 2011 at 06:19AM PST
Good luck on your trip! I hope you have fun, I´m sure you´ll put up a great show. I wish I could go an check it out, but it´s way to far.

I like the painting, the man looks like Huge Grant.
The picture you took in the mirror looks great, and Deanna looks beautiful as ever. I´d like to have those old TV´s to show a bunch of different videos at parties. If I had a garage I would make an art gallery in and all my friends could hang things on the walls and in the roof, and a bunch of TV screens...........I wish I wish.

I´ll be old and boring by the time I ever get to actually buy a place with a garage.

BUDAPEST. all caps. Eastern Europe is pretty mysterious.
Going 2 yourup again,BRB LOL.

ed,you can't be h8ing on the Dalai Lama when he does shit like this.

Has the pope fully embraced objective knowledge? I dunno.

With all these photos of Deanna,I wonder what photo Ed carries in his wallet. Or maybe he doesn't carry a photo and uses the excuse "She's in my heart" or something.

Alex Olson takes a lot of good photos, totally gonna kiss his butt right now. His photos of Mark Gonzales are all good. I guess people that are more physically attractive have it easier in life, Alex has a smooth ride ahead. Maybe. it's pretty funny that he does Modeling. Would anybody else here do modeling if they had the chance? Seems easy to me. Just put some clothes on and whatever. I don't know what I'm talking about. Next.

Scratched bathroom mirror. Yeah,dude. I feel weird now that it's my job to buff Graffiti in the bathroom at work. You know, because I like going to other bathrooms and drawing. Total hypocrite.

Ed's smitten by J.Casanova. I guess he has a big penis.
He still has a fucken baby head.

Rap that's all about having a big ego is weak, like Wayne. but still,Wayne is pretty funny and has some good rhymes. I can appreesh, but not take seriously.

Yeah,dude. link. haha. Here's a tip. Push and hold down the Ctrl button then scroll in. You can watch those retarded animations in full screen.

The comments are kinda disturbing. Let me post one:
"im n my bf have been together for almost 5 months now n hes totally great for gettin rid of my shyness...i lost my virginity with him but he is 7 years older than me n had lost his along time ago [has a kid also whose guna be 3] anyways we started with missionary our first two times n he wanted to show me some other positions that could pleasure both of us...this was one of them but i was too shy to try it...two nights ago we were sittin on a park bench n he ate me out for the first time n it was good so we had sex too..tried doggy but it was awkward on the bench so i pushed him n said i wanted top..he layed down n put his hands on my hips to guide me [he always promises me hell show me wat to do] then he fingered me n put his penis in me n pulled me down on him then i put my hands on his chest while he moved me back n forth til i took over n impressed him! i even made him moan [he said he woodnt ever moan] by pushin [a.k.a flexing my vagina muscles] hard against him...mmmmm sooo damn good!" - on the Cowgirl Sex Position page.

The more I read those comments,I'm getting kinda bummed.

Another public sleeper.

Paintings are looking nice. Whatever happened to that style of those Big Eyed bright colored people you used to do?

I was riding my bicycle home the other day. and there was this TV in somebody's lawn. It read "FREE" then under that "WORKS". All these people buy TVs when they already have one that works.

John Doerr is butthurt that nobody Comments/Follows his blog.

You haven't died yet. Imagine dying in a car crash in a Smart car with Tinker Bell seat covers and an Ed Hardy steering wheel covered. and you have Crocs on. "Only my iPhone survived"

photos of by ed + quote captions = never gets old

jgonz, i have a confession to make...
i've "modeled".
yep, and i got payed with clothes.
my lady friend owns a clothing brand here in mex and i was kindly asked ,to my surprise, to model for the new season catalog.
all you do is wear whatever garment you're given, stand where you're told, do whatever pose and facial gesture you come up with, and done (repetitively for 453 times), bookmarked!

have a safe and fun trip, ed!

Posted By: CHAD on January 7th, 2011 at 02:50PM PST
im kinda drunk right now.
i was gonna have one of those "talk of my life" with the same girl ive been talking
about before here but, due to our drunkness, she said

"lets talk tomorrow, i neither you are in the right mindset in order to talk about anything right now...not that i would forget, but lets just not do it right now, im too tired...lets talk tomorrow ,please"

i obliged.

i said that in the car a dude friend was driving us in and i obliged to her words.
to which i answered "you know what? i don't think ill tell you anything tomorrow. but regardless of anything, i love you very much and i truly wish you the best. i'll be seeing you soon, and please take care of yourself"

which was followed by a kiss in her cheek and an intense hug.

i said good bye to the dude driving and her gal who was going shot gun, and i got off at my house.

i been going to a therapist for a month. she's pretty cool and helps me out a lot. she knows all my drama soap opera shit and, curiously enough, she advised me some similar words ed told me last time which were
"record your thoughts and feelings"

and i've done so... i've been writing a dairy for about a month now, but right now i'm making an exception cos toymachine and ed rule supreme and my fingers record faster typing than writing in a piece of paper through a pen.

i even got home and first thing i did aside getting to this site was to leave rosemary, my best lady friend, a voice mail, letting her know i love her, and regardless anything, she IS indeed a fucking awesome friend, and i don't know how much a friend is worth but i truly hope she she's a mere human worth a beauty after all.

i also made her know i was not crying nor super drunk, i was just being "thoughtful" and "true" and "real" and nothing else...

what makes a bad friend a bad friend? i'm afraid im encountering for the first time this scenario...

this dude , i don't know if he's "bad" after all.
but the truth is, i let him know way back the intense shit i felt for this lovely gal ages ago, yet, i can clearly see and notice how much game he throws at her, even though he isn't looking a "serious relationship with her", he just does it because he a MAN, it is within man's nature to fulfill his physiological needs...

regardless those needs are fulfilled by a single lady who is TRULY loved by fresh.
regardless he knows fresh loves that gal he's having whatever affair with.

it doesn't really hurt me she does this on her behalf because she is single and shes totally allowed to do whatever the fuck she wants... but, my dude friend, who is totally aware i feel something awesome for her, mess with her? that's what hurts.

not my lady friend, but the dude friend who i thought was a trustworthy friend.

and yes, i feel jealous because he's closer to her as friends than i am.
and i feel impotence because there's nothing i can do about it.

fuck him, bless her, let them be... i wish you the best and be happy, even though it hurts me.
but fuck it, Nietzsche said pain makes you stronger and that's what i plan to get out of this.

good night, gal, you're awesome and wish you an awesome life.
you are an idea.
my ideal.
but NOT the ideal...

dudes here, i love you, thanks, and my apologies
Posted By: fresh from mex on January 8th, 2011 at 05:45AM PST
tldr; you want a girl, but she isn't interested. And there's this guy that doesn't lover her like you do. and she pays him more attention.

You're dealing with the situation pretty good. If it was me I would just stop talking to both of those people and would have given up already.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on January 8th, 2011 at 12:49PM PST
Yeah, Fresh, chin up!

Giving any advices is always tricky with situations like that,
but I guess everyone with a heart has experienced similar
interactions of unreturned feelings and stuff.

Record your life, sing your life;)
Great music and art has grown out of the most desperate moments, I guess.
But wasn´t that pain quote from Rollins?

Again, hang in there.

Morrissey got the cover of Thrasher.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on January 9th, 2011 at 10:26PM PST
Wasn´t that the A-List police actor guy?

You know, I respect Rollins for beeing in Black Flag.
But everything beyond....not because he´s bashing Morrissey.

He´s sad. Stuck in his role and ideals of youth.
No progression in the depth of his thoughts and the
way he explains them.

There´s this series called "through the night with..." on TV.
Two (mostly famous and or art world related) people meet
who haven´t meet before and one takes the other on a tour
on what he´s interessted in. Galleries, places, friends, whatever.

So, Henry met this women, I can´t remember who she was,
but I think some painter or dancer. It was ridiculous.

He couldn´t see who´s infront of him and was just all way
through trying to impress her with quotes like, no, I never
had wine in my life and that straight edge, hardcore, trying to
impress the kids talk, but just couldn´t be relaxed and reach
to her level.
It was like watching a boy beeing out with woman.
Everythink he said and the way he behaved was so juvenile.
He just couldn´t handle it.

Guess he´s still fighting "his war".

I seriously have to excuse for my recent comment.
"That woman" as I said, was no other then Shirin Neshat.
Sorry for that.

Hungary, oh Hungary. Our troubled neighbour, right now falling for that nationalism will give us our pride back hoax. Make sure to stay away from those Jobbik people and if you see some gypsies please be kind to them, they are like the jews of the 21st century, everybody hates them. It "helps" to have someone to look down on when your situation isn't good either( see also -> nationalism) Ok, so let's hope you don't die...and please post from Hungary. Btw, that quote about art, who said that? And will there be an opening with the artist present? (there is an deformer book begging to be signed)
And yes, rollins was definetly creepy that night:

so you where there that night, royal viennese pawn?

i would've felt the same uncomfortable reaction of tease rollins took from that girl too...
but oh well, she started. maybe her intention wasn't to fuck around, maybe yes, dunno.

rollins "provoked" face at 1:28 is priceless
Posted By: fresh from mex on January 10th, 2011 at 07:40PM PST
No fresh from mex, I was about one ocean away from that place. Maybe I was influenced by S vans post, maybe there are meanings to the word creepy that I, being austrian, don't know but I felt quite uncomfortable watching the video. vicarious embarrassement / douche chills
"Liar" is still one of my favorite music videos, I go watch it now.

It\'s rather toymidlifecrisisthirtysomething austria in my case, but well... funny that you\'re also from austria S van! You go to Copenhagen but not to Budapest? so you\'re not from vienna or eastern austria, right? I kind of feel rising pressure to buy some toy socks until january 21st.And you will know them by the socks on their feet... I\'m really looking forward to see the exhibition in Budapest, if there\'s a grand opening even better!
Posted By: royal viennese pawn on January 12th, 2011 at 10:02AM PST
Funny, royal viennese pawn, so we´re around the same age.
Midlife crisis? Well, no subject for public blogging;)

Also, don´t wanna scare these young guns here, with
spine surgery and grey hair talk.

I´m from Germany, btw.
Too busy working to go to Budapest and I´ve been there before,
but not so with Copenhagen, so I´ll go there.

I bet there´s an opening in Budapest. Gent had one...
Posted By: S van on January 12th, 2011 at 11:03AM PST
Yoga. that's all i'm going to say. And nice blog, of course. Not sure whether i still like to be there on the opening, man that was crowded! Maybe go there again the next day to really watch the exhibition. name will stay for at least the next 3 posts...
Posted By: ex royal on January 12th, 2011 at 12:28PM PST
Posted By: S van on January 12th, 2011 at 01:18PM PST
Gent was really heavy crowded, but the museum was
huge, so there was enough room to watch the artwork,
while others already hit the bar.

But I agree, if you´re not desperatly wanting to meet the artist,
let´s say, to get your deformer signed and some photo with the
artist to expose it on your blog, although you´re too ugly to show
your face on the internet, it´s recommended to go on the days
after the opening, yes...

Really digging the painting how it is. Most of the time, I like my drawings or paintings more when they're unfinished than when I complete them.

Posted By: fresh from mex on January 12th, 2011 at 09:23PM PST
Mike's soo two thousand and late.

My ex sent me a link to this about the same time last year.

Don't you have a girlfriend? You can be like "Hey, come check out this fuckface" then show her the retarded animation. Best case scenario, the animation is duplicated. Worst case scenario, she freaks out on you and tells everyone how much of a perv you are then goes shopping with your credit card. Nike SBs aren't cheap,homie.

They need a mobile App version of the site.
So you can be like "Hey...look" on the go. Or show a cashier at burger king what you want to do to her. Check this out,babe,I call it "The Whopper"
Posted By: Jgonzalez on January 12th, 2011 at 10:11PM PST
I am late. "Mad late yo". If I was this late, and was a girl.....there would be a bun in my oven. No doubt in my mind.

Fresh, I've been in your situation before and I just let the other dude have her. It was my fault though, cause he asked me if I still really liked the girl, and I said no for some reason. Also I was eleven or twelve haha. Also again, haha, she is a lesbian, and was at that time too. She went out with him cause he was more attractive than me. (Which I don't really get, because she's a lesbian, but that's besides the point haha) At least he asked though. If that dude really knows you like her, he seems like a shitty dude that doesn't give a fuck. "Bros before hoes"-Mark Twain. Doesn't he know the bro credo ? Hope that gave you a laugh.

JGonz- I do have a girlfriend and I don't have a credit card.......This is a win-win scenario right? Also before she has the chance to tell anyone a thing, I'm gonna rip out her vocal chords, if it comes to that. I'ma show her on Friday, I'll let you know how it goes down haha.

Just saying Friday has made me want to watch all the Friday movies. I suggest everyone watches them, truly well written movies deserving of ten oscars each, I think.

Rip out her vocal chords. What happened to the time when a man could slap his ho into check. Shit. I want my America back, vote for Palin,guys.

You don't know nothing about dating. That's a confusing ass time in life. at least for me. Also my ex asks me questions about still having feelings and shit for her. and I say "No" too. I guess people say "No" just to avoid conflict and weirdness or something.

Ask a scooter kid, apparently everybody is gay.

Fresh, you're gonna live in SD? In the dorms? Closer to the skate video premiers?

For some reason I'm craving Chicken Parmeseana. I just ate 3 oreos.

I Update my status here way more than on FB.

iPhone on Verizon..may be able to update me Tumblr on the go. I dunno.

Anybody skate lately? I did some flat ground varial kickflips the other day. Made me feel badass. Then I went and watched some of that SLAP OIAM.
