Downtown Showdown Competition Wrap-Up

I would say it was a good day. (I didn't have to use my AK) Good times were had.

Get to the place early to warm-up, no crowds, no screaming fans or hangers-on, just pure street ("street" as in studio lot fake street where movies are made) + obstacles + JLAY = ripping.

Austin has had to hire his own security gaurd to keep the teen girls away from him while he works.

J-Lay drinks pee-pee. But before you say "gross," it's imported Brazilian 16-year-old girl piss, super high in nutrients. Don't judge.

A-Stone tail skids over the bench at the Nueva China Banks from SF transplanted in So-Cal without the homeless people.

He has that in a backside too.

Grant Hatfield scorches a back tail as well.

Johnny just can't stay out of the air.

Good times for a change / seen the luck I've had / can make those less fortunate commit suicide.

See how close the box is to the pyramid? Well Leo would ollie over the pyramid and then do something on this box going mach-julien, which is really fucking fast if you were not aware.

"Gratuitous Austin Coverage."

Brian Shaeffer: "Nick T, what's up bro? How are you?"
Nick T: "Fuck, what is this guys name? I've seen him before, but where?"
610011tm.JPG
Angel and Nick. "Who was that guy? He crushed my hand."
610012tm.JPG
Exhibit A: It's called backlighting.
610014tm.JPG
Leo shaved his head and wore a "The Edge" style skull-cap. He's a beard away from being on the terrorist watch-list.
610015tm.JPG
Steve Van Doren of the Van Doren family, inventor of Vans' shoes is down with the Sect.
610016tm.JPG
"Gratuitous Nick Trapasso coverage" - for the ladies.
610018tm.JPG
Billy was asking $50 for his used shoes. Why $50? "They are even better after I touched them."
610017tm.JPG
"You don't want 'em? No problem ass-face, I'll sell them to this guy right here for $60."
610019tm.JPG
I wonder what my brother, (the guy with the goatee) is thinking? This interview was an invasion of my personal space. He was probably zoomed in on my mouth and the footage will be unwatchable. Lets hope.
610020tm.JPG
Watching the bloodbath.
610022tm.JPG
"We fully know how to party."
610023tm.JPG
Cody and Ed, yep, two more weeks befor those pins (scroll down) come out.
610026tm.JPG
Nick got 2nd on the Pyramid and came up one some cash. "Drinks on Nick!"
610027tm.JPG
We went up to get our prize, the adulation of fans. No trophy? Are trophies passe now?
610028tm.JPG
The after-Millieu always makes me feel dirty.

Nick T with Foundations' $30,000 comical fake check.

Thanks for these great shots. Austin coverage is never gratuitous, and JLay, Billy & Leo totally rocked the obstacles. Treat and a half to watch.

Toy Machine promo---- when is it coming out????

Billy killed it at the Vans Showdown. Everyone thought Billy had won the Black Label 12 Step program - Dave Duncan even said so on the mic.

JLay should have gotten 3rd or 2nd at the Creature Cross.

Why didn't Austin skate the contest?
Posted By: Gards on September 28th, 2009 at 02:39PM PST
Austin skated the practice runs...

The Toy team ripped everyone new assholes.

I didn't see Leo though...

your brothers thinking:"what the fuck are you talking about?" or he's making sure theres no face debris for the super close close-up.

A dude at my work said he's indian(native-american)-german, thats Rambo's heritage.

Yo Ed! You and your brother where in my dream last night. It was BBQ in a backyard in a hybrid city that was cross between Austin and Brooklyn. Other people in my dream where people I actually know + Kid Congo Powers and some slutty chick that was hating on me because I wouldn't fuck her. Your brother was asking me about the wicks in the tiki torches. That's all I remember.
