Looking out in a daze, thoughts careening into the ether like a lightning storm, none worth putting into words. Fears, desires, memories, wishes, anger all shooting out like benign arrows shooting into the limitless space to travel in perpetuity never finding a target. Each second another hundred thoughts are extinguished before they even begin. -ed templeton

I wonder what Andrew Jackson would think being transported through time exactly to this 2012 county fair where a man is pulling legal tender from a machine bearing his likeness?

Butch: Would you like it if I have a pot belly?
Fabienne: No. Pot bellies make a man look either oafish, or like a gorilla. But on a woman, a pot belly is very sexy. The rest of you is normal. Normal face, normal legs, normal hips, normal ass, but with a big, perfectly round pot belly. If I had one, I'd wear a tee-shirt two sizes too small to accentuate it.

Posted September 26th, 2012 by Howl into the night ye youth this is your moment.
Big brother is watching. Big brother is also a chill but ripped life guard with a hidden monster energy tat.

Grandpa treating a young niece or grand daughter or something to ice cream. How many senior citizens pass away while wearing crocks. That one night they fall asleep after jeopardy and don't wake up.

Frito Lay guy just couldn't stop shopping.

Lifeguard(s) on duty\

Digging your philosophical archery. We all shoot arrows. Some more dull and some more sharp. But when is it that we shoot to kill.
ha. I can hang.

KISS like gene simmons.

I was just reading Andrew Jackson's wikipedia article. Fuck what he thinks. he was a slaveholder and he promted freedom amongst whites. Looks like Abraham Lincoln was republican though. Democratic party didn't have a good start. Now the political ice cream bar is only down to two flavors and nobody complains. Some politicians may have sprinkles on top, but they are rare and people don't usually demand that. Stick to this political system we're indoctrinated into. No I haven't been listening to Anti Flag or anything. But i'm just going to wake up tomorrow and consume gasoline and worry about my non existent sex life and other petty things. such is life. fuck it.

Is that poseidon...with shades and fucking beats by dre. holy shit.

Sun moon and truth. That's the truth.

Wine mixer. ok . ban me.

Badass corn snake. not as badass as my KoRn snake though.

Dr.Pepper. man. I haven't had a Mountain Dew in a long time. last time I had one was before they even had a skate team. but what the fuck does mountain dew have to do with skateboarding. I guess that's true with a lot of shit also and I suppose stoner ass skaters already drank Mountain dew anyway. But maybe I'll get a mountain dew soon and poison myself like the masses for a moment of sweet pleasure on my taste buds. everybody's doing it. it can't be bad,right?

Mountain dew Baja Blast is good.


Put Steamer on Toy! She needs a sponsor. Or maybe she doesn't? Maybe I just think she deserves a sponsor!

Have you guys ever been bled on by a dog in heat? Not fun.


haha Posedian wears Dre beats headphones?? Have you guys heard of those new headphones by that Krooked rider??? Skaters have been blowing up with Ads about them. Apparently they donate money to deaf people and stuff. Pretty cool.


So Toy Machine has a tour vid coming out Friday! Should be fun!

Does anyone put videos on dvd anymore??

I'm fed up with my life. blah.

The Art in the Litmus test looks a little different from what you usually put out. I guess it's incorporated with other Artists too?

Q» What are your thoughts on Twitter and Facebook? Would you have to be held at gunpoint to join them?

Moz-I know nothing about Twitter, and I can only roughly assess Facebook. Twitter seems useful in some ways because you are no longer at the mercy of press interpretation, but Facebook is too self-gratifying. You might think you have 900 friends, but it’s an illusion. You might as well live in a lighthouse off the Scottish highlands. People think that they are in touch because they print a few lines everyday, but to me it seems like the essence of loneliness.

In this same interview Moz said his favorite new song was System of a Down's Lonely Day.
i'm amazed by mozzer.

I am glad to see the Burger King has moved onto bigger and better like the Rave Wave. He is a class act and I wish him well.
Andrew Jackson would probably be psyched about the whole money thing. He was a bit materialistic for his time and know to be a clothes horse. Bling indeed.

SO GOOD, ED.

I love how you portray Huntington Beach in your photos.
Loving it and making fun of it at the same time.

I'm going to be traveling up north by way of foot & backpack. Can I have some more socks, please? hah

JGONZ AND I ARE GOING TO MEET IN PERSON.

Skin head life guards haha. This is a good post. I feel like I have a Ph.D. in Dr. Pepper mythology. Fuck college....just read obscure articles and become the authority on the matter.

I like the Buddha quotes. On a different note, one of my teachers was telling us that when the last Dalai Lama died, the current one was young and I'm paraphrasing, but he said to the monks, "Why did you move my things?\" in reference to the last Dalai Lama's personal effects, so that solidified him being the reincarnation of the previous Dalai Lama....I hope that's true because that would be amazing haha

Jcobz and JGonz sitting in a tree, p-i-s-s-i-n-g. or kissing. whatever you choose. take pictures and video and instagram it and post it on your blogs, and write a newspaper article about it. I can't wait to see it. Have fun Jacob

Hey you guys check out Turtle boy and Tony Hawk on Ride channel. Turtle boy is getting mad coverage.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOpBGASrLb8
Posted By: Josiah on September 30th, 2012 at 09:00PM PST
Shit. I thought that was gonna be Reynolds and Tony talking about Birdhouse days or something. Would have been weird.

Yeah man. Everybody is hungry for Elissa footy, Especially after that epicly laterd. I wonder how she would interact with the Toy Machine guys. I have a feeling Lu+Steamer would be an interesting combo. not sexually but skatewise. you know.

You smell dog vagina at work?

k. I will document.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on September 30th, 2012 at 10:42PM PST
haha I was pretty surprised they had Turtle boy on the show. It\'s awesome.

Hell yea someone needs to hook her up. She\'s cool.

Yea, Pugs and Bulldogs are the worst. Only if their in heat.lol

Can ya\'ll imagine Ed being in a 50 cent or Snoop dog music video?
Posted By: Josiah on October 1st, 2012 at 08:42AM PST
Wow the Jacob and Jgonzalez meeting, dibs on the movie rights. Are you going camping Jacob, sre you going all "into the wild"? Sometimes I want to go camping alone, but then I remember that I am really scared of being alone in the dark. Such a bummer, I need to overcome my fears.

Elissa should have a guest/reappearance model on toy, right? I'm sure it would sell out!
Posted By: emilie on October 1st, 2012 at 03:03PM PST
hell ya getting Elissa would be cool!

What if Ed was in a No age music video??
Posted By: Josiah on October 3rd, 2012 at 02:20PM PST
What if Ed played in No age
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 4th, 2012 at 07:44AM PST
What if Ed had no age?

Yes, there will be photos, of all angles and different backdrops. Basically it will be a photo shoot.

Emilie, I am going up north for work & to travel. There will be lots of camping & will mostly be outdoors. There's no need to be afraid of the dark. The dark keeps you from seeing scary things. & I love being alone, but I'll have a travel buddy. She likes to get high & camp. She's vibin'.

Thanks guys!

@luh_dat_shit is my instagram. I'll be posting shit tons of photos from my trip. I'd love to have an art show with only cell phone photos. I'm going to be shooting with film, but not nearly as much. That's not for just shooting anything.

my god. he still hits those high notes. I'm swooning.

Morrissey is looking so confident on stage. Not like that Jay Leno 90's performance where he sits at the polar end of the couch and sulks around.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 4th, 2012 at 07:03PM PST
