fucking french people.. so frickin' funney.
i bought a new board yesterday at skateboarding's walmart, aka active rideshop.
but i guess they even fail at their walmart resemblance because walmart has EVERYTHING, and active didn't have any toy boards.
so i was undecided between an anti hero or slave, but the former was waay too big (8.2) and the latter was kinda warped, so i said fuck it and grabbed a brad staba skate mental. the shape looks nice but im already used to toy, but oh well.
oh, and that one paragraph in april's toy ad was totally worth my precious time.

I've never even seen an active store front, only little mail mags. It sucks when you go to a skate shop and have to settle on some random product. I've seriously been thinking about re-gripping my current Toy deck. I've never done such a thing but Daewon has done it and my grip is almost the consistency of felt with dirt added. I still got all tricks though. The other day I skated downtown Brockton MA in heinous arctic winds and melting glaciers all the while still ripping. Feels almost nice to be a warrior....a bit of pride.

Let me jump on this bitching bandwagon.
My local shops suck, except for one, for shoes. Kinda. I dunno, with the internet we know everything a company releases. But board walls seem so lame around my hood. Like two or three board companies. One is all 'core and only has a shit load of Anti Hero and a couple of whatever. They do have toy machine occasional, like one or two. Shit, shops need at least like one OG logo board in different sizes.
I don't even have a board right now..LOL. Only Trucks.
Is that Skate Mental like Crailtap wood? Or is it different since they changed?
I thought Active was all down with Toy. Or maybe they all sold out ;)
I guess you could have gotten a Foundation..urk.
CCS,Footlocker. Zumiez is lamer I guess. maybe I should open my own skateshop. Then I can sell all the Dylan Rieder shoes and Toy Boards I want. But who wants to buy boards from some internet nerd that gets boners for Ed's pro boards.

I should just go shopping at Jokers.

I think shops have distribution deals that allow them to carry certain brands and if they want another brand then they gotta give up one they currently carry. lame, yes.
In the new CCS, fallen has labeled the ripper shoe a team shoe now. just noticed that.
