A day out schralping with Matt and Leo...

These are the types of things we bring you here at Toy

The daily minutia of a life well skated.
Skating is alive in the youth of today. Makeshift hubba ledges and rails are being created in suburbia. Kids with footballs in their hands are wishing everyone was looking at them, but they are not. They are watching the real shit go down.
"Dude, I think you are skinny enough to squeeze through..."
This fence's vagina gives birth to a fully grown Matt B. "Its a boy!" Luckily Indiana Jones was there to help.
Oh that's Leo Romero. His sponsor 'white shirt' must be happy.
Finding rails and performing moves. It's... what we do.
Lets get a bit closer to this. Matt B does a boardlide starting frontside, so his back is forward, and he is going backwards, its called a frontside boardslide, right?
Leo gets his feet wet by jumping up to 50-50 grind on the handrail.
"Do you guys have velcro on your feet?"
Matt B nose-skidders the shit out of that rail first try.
Leo does the same trick as the 50-50 before, but with a slight variation. He does a 5-0, (only half of a 50-50 because he is only scraping one truck (axle housing) on the rail) But this 5-0 is on the FRONT truck, so we call it a nosegrind. A 5-0 means only the back truck is grinding. For short, any skateboarder will know what this is if you just say, "nosegrind" as in this sentance: "Leo does a nosegrind."
Matt B will drink to that. He'll drink to just about anything.
Whoa! It turns out Austin was there too!
Kevin thinks that Austin is contemplating something heavy here, but in reality he is thinking about changing the color of his shoelaces from white to black. And for a second he thought about changing them to red to match his beanie, but that made him think of Felix Arguelles, and de decided to stop thinking about it. All of this happened in a fraction of one second.
This is the end of the post.

Haha, over on a knitting website someone was asking for patterns for hats "like the skateboarders wear". Apparently no bright colors are allowed, according to one idiot; you should probably tell Austin to tone that gorgeous red. And skaters supposedly only wear chullo-earflaps. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

Leo can skate handriels so easy
i think daily skating give you more power,
i mean i only skate 1 or 2 days of the week
and i drink beer and smoke pot like every day,
when im skating i feel like 50% less power in my jumping and gripping to do shit ,if leo or other pro smokes weed and drinks beer, the only reason they still seching tall stuf and skating logn hours it beacouse they skate every day!!

don't forget our hit single, "That Joke Is Still Pretty Funny."

No, we don't play knock-off songs, but that'd be hilarious. I'll post a link soon when we get some music up.

special shout out to any straight edge TM pawns

I got over weed and shit. So I guess I'm straight edge. Plus now I can listen to the Minor Threat album guilt free
There is a light that won't turn off

Jgonz your not straight edge and you don't have to be to enjoy Minor Threat.

It's not a label it's a commitment.
read on if you want . . .

I sure as hell do not consider anybody who doesn't smoke, drink, or have intercourse to be "straight edge".

People just have to have labels.
They hate lables, but they themselves will begin a label themselves.

My 17 year old step brother considers himself "edge".
He's not "edge", he just hasn't experienced drinking or smoking yet.
He has no idea how his body would react. For all he knows, he could be 100% better at certain things when he's inebriated.

I hate that label, upon most.

Sorry, I've been bumming this site down with my rants...
I'm just really stoned...
