It's amazing how many photos you took yet it hasn't gotten stale, the baloon guy is awesome. Same with the last photo, I love how they're completely surrounded by darkness, gives it a somewhat mysterious feel.

Possibly the feeling after eating something unhealthy but that tasted amazing?

First picture nailed it.

Geez that's a crap load of balloons, someone's gonna be super stoked to get them.

Dang I bet Ed is so ready to start traveling and skating again!?

So this guy contacted me about a super rare toy deck. It's signed by the whole" jump off a building" era team. Chris Senn, bam, steamer, BA, gets and even Ed. He wants 700$. Pretty cool cause its such a rare deck.

Josiah, that would be so awesome to have. Try to talk him down just to see if you can

Jgonz, Chan Marshall likes your pictures on instagram... Instafame.
Dear sir is such a good album

I had to google that. I didn't know who that was. But I knew what Cat Power is.
I should start listening to them. I've heard Cat power mentioned here and there.

Folded penis. We care. We are blog nerds and congregate around Ed's blog and we like to take photos sometimes and share. It's fun. And why the Internet exists. Don't be so mean.

Sorry I'm not commenting on this post right now overlord but I will at some point
I pwomise u

Foldedshirts - for what it's worth, I too care. It's always cool to have new photos to check out.

Ha I don't have that kind of money anyway. I do want it though.

Well I hope everyone is doing okay!?

am i the only one who has a darn hard time trying to "color" b&w visuals on the head?
dont get me wrong, i absolutely prefer b&w photos over color, except when it comes to textbook images. i like em colorful and pretty,
i understand better with color

is anybody into mano negra? great band.
i've always imagined the butcher skating to "indios de barcelona"

patriostism
hell, i stil conflict myself with my nationality identity
born and schooled in the states, raised in mex
you can take the boy out of the barrio but you cant take the barrio out of the boy
im proud of a few things, my neighborhood being one of them
but school pride? nah.
i was proud of pooping the hardest turd the other day, though
i think i saw a little red stain when i wiped
legit shit

so many older adults walking in the streets of barcy

marc johnson defined success as "having a good woman to love, doing what you love to doing everyday, and just enough money in your pockets"
i couldn't agree more

If you see blood on the tp after you wipe, you may need to eat healthier!

emile,
are you the girl caressing the all mighty swastika or in the white shirt?
or is the woman with glasses rocking a marge simpson necklace you?
or are you the man with plaid over plaid shirt?

josiah, are you sure?
i've always thought it was because i over-wiped until sparkling clean or because the poop made my rectum bleed
Posted By: fresh from mex on February 25th, 2013 at 02:35PM PST
Could be that too!
Posted By: Josiah on February 26th, 2013 at 12:12PM PST
I had bloody butthole for a second before too. I used to wipe a lot. I eat apples now so I can wipe less. And I eat less fried stuff and meats too. I don't ever really get diarrhea anymore like I used to.

I hope we get to see Ed skate this summer, even if he's just cruising around it would be good.

I felt the heat from the sun on my face today for the first time in months. It felt incredible, I just sat outside in a chair for two hours.

my city made the news after the federales busted a weed cannon that shot packages to the states
funny

Weed cannons.
Once weed becomes legal this would probably be an example of how retarded people were during this prohibition.

Gay marriage and weed.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on February 28th, 2013 at 09:36PM PST
That weed canon is ridiculous, wtf?
Weed is semi legal here in Washington and it hasn't affected me at all to this point. Once they have pulic shops and everything is dispensary prices plus a huge tax it may leave an effect though.
I hate weed culture and hope a bunch of trust fund hippies don't move here from portland, if they do hopefully they just go up to Olympia or something.

I don't think weed should be illegal, but I also don't think they should perpetuate it's image as some novelty item or use it as a way to syphon more unearmarked tax money to spend unwisely.


When is the vans video supposed to come out? I am actually looking forward to that
Posted By: Tenant on March 1st, 2013 at 07:43AM PST
Oh and fresh, one time at an old friends house his mom had moist wipes by her toilet and when asked he said normal toilet paper gives her the same bloody butthole problem you mentioned.
Why he knew about her butthole is beyond me
Posted By: Tenant on March 1st, 2013 at 09:49AM PST
Damn, I missed the bloody butthole convention.
