DAN.
OMG.
where you been bud. 2 years? seems longer.

Japan sounds sweet. It's on my list of places to go in my life. I would like to go with somebody I know though that speaks Japanese. Then again, going balls out would be an experience too.

Ok. my UK impression. Of London, giddy london. sorry. But really. it was like you said. you go everywhere and you see Moz/Smiths shit. Like I got on the underground out of Heathrow and there's Earl's court. And I would always transfer at Piccadilly circus and would ride the Bakerloo line to Elephant and castle. It was really easy to get around everywhere. The bus and tube system are great. They make BART look like shit. Lot's of walking, but it's nice to soak everything in. I spent a lot of time eating shit from Tescos. Like their sandwiches that were marked down to a pound and bags of pound or two chips and shit. I didn't go to any restaurants since it would blow my budget. spending around 5 pounds a day on food wasn't bad. I really liked the record stores in Camden. Music t-shirt vendors also had really good selections. I've been into English bands and shit so it's cool to see lot's of stuff they have like Sex Pistols singles and I bought a Pil single of The Body and a Smiths bootleg single from this store with 3 Casualties looking punks. People were cool. Kind of a bummer coming back to where I live and seeing tons of overweight and under dressed people. I didn't see many Homeless people. I wonder where they lurk. I would see a couple here and there but it's not like where I live. They crawl everywhere.
Next time I want to go to Belfast and Manchester. I also would like to go in the fall when there's not a lot of tourists. Going to the museums and having seeing people touch the items and use flash photos sucked. Like some people go to the museum with the intention of taking as many digital photos home as possible. They don't even stop to admire anything about the piece. I saw tons of pieces that were in my art history text book. I nerded out on them. It was great. You know. America is good, but I hate all the fucking rednecks/conservative American culture. Maybe I'm naive to English conservatives and have this glamorized perception of England. People suck everywhere. Slam City skates and Supreme were cool. sick board walls, yet they lacked Toy Machine goodies. Sidewalks were jacked, skating must be rough for them. I found some sick spots but had no board. It would be cool to figure out how one would go about moving there. save some g's and do it. would be cool,huh? I'll be back

Processing film. I've been way too lazy about doing any photo work. Neglecting my bloggins. Been having the idea in the back of my head to make a (maga)Zine. Zine? difference? I printed 1 but haven't gotten around to making more. posting about it on the internet doesn't really help right now. I suck. fuck me. I would make some and mail it to you guys if anybody would even want one.

Senior citizen life. are they a couple? how long? shit. relationships. people. life. women. I haven't been in love for a super long time. I think it's just my age. Every emotion I have has been mapped out,recorded, and felt by somebody else before. What is love? baby do hurt me. But like. There's nothing divine about love. people just hook up with whoever's within their vicinity.

quit doing them poundsignings bro. This is teh internet old school web surfin bro. I'm on a laptop. Powell board of internet surfing. Window's 95 was a fucking Alva board.

studying for the test. whatever. she has big boobs. why do I find boobs attractive. why do I mention boobs to my male peers and we agree upon their pleasantness. Besides the fact that I want sex. too human bro.

Very romantic. Dolphin and double rainbow.

entertained by water spheres. very easy to entertain and brainwash. she must be an Obama supporter. just kidding, but seriously people say dumb shit like that on the web all the time. so, about that trayvon. fuck guns. Fuck zimmerman for being a bitch and pulling a gun out. he was getting his ass kicked by a kid and just couldn't take it. weeeeaaaaak.

Alex Olson loves new york. still on 3d?

edddddddd I want to see your paintings IRL. one day i'll quit being a apiece of shit and drive to a show. that was weird, that kid got pissed off about the,what was it, bat ray that got its tail cut off. I guess he thought you were saying fuck bat ray killers and his dad was one. I mean I guess you were saying that but more exactly saying you're not stoked on it. or admiring/pondering the gnar of life. judging by that guy's instagrams it looks like he rips. I don't hang with any of those guys though. the local shop people.

PS it was funny seeing Mike V play. lolz
He did security when black flag came on. it was super funny he had this black coach's jacket with embroidered black flag bars on and he was on the corner of the stage kind of behind the curtain staring at everyone. he's a good security guard. Like this fucking guy with tribal tattoos all over his face, total crust punk wanderer vagrant guy. and he was ripping off the railing at the venue from the stage and mike v comes over and pushes the guy away and tells him to fuck off pretty much. I took two photos of that interaction. I hope they come out. I also got a photo with Mike. I was staring at his X'd out Element logo tattoo when he was singing. he was also wearing Vans black check slip ons when he's on Servent. I was thinking, damn, this dude is Ed's old homie. man. what if Ed sang/played with black flag. then I thought that would be awesome and after the show I could make you sign my stuff.

I like your comments Jgonz

Diggity dan is back!

Jgonz is a god.

I would study with that blonde any day.

I need to go to HB so bad!

@Tenant Japan sounds awesome!

@jgonz I loved the photo you posted on insta of the Supreme store.

Still trying to figure out if I like Supreme. It seems their trying to come off as high fashion or something. I do like the fact that The Gonz reps them though.

Where yoy gonna post all your photos at Jgonz? Your Tumblr? I wanna see more!

Hi Diggity dan!

Reading the comments....can't get over Mike V. being security. That's funny as hell to me. But, I bet he's amazing at it too.

dat guy petting the pelican...
Posted By: Mike on July 25th, 2013 at 09:50AM PST
also I'd like to add, I would like that zine JGonz.


Happy 20 years of Toy Machine
Posted By: Mike on July 25th, 2013 at 07:49PM PST
Jgonz, me wants zine
Will pay big time for it, still have two copies of the low res one I made and can send one of those too. Also that tape made is in production, the guy sent the paperwork in last week
Posted By: Tenant on July 27th, 2013 at 11:45PM PST
God? Internet god? I can live with that title.

Supreme can be cool. The fact they make some quality stuff in the USA is a good reason. Yeah. Tons of dildos wear the shit, skaters are the minority. Anyway. I like stuff made in the USA, even if I can't afford it, I like the idea.
The extra photos live on my phone. Believe it or not I try to have standards on what goes on my tumblr and I don't want to be a douche that posts a million photos. If I see you in person, then I may bore you to death with travel stories but I don't want to be that guy

K. I'll be more inclined now I know you bros are down

I've been super lazy and never emailed you back tenant about those tunes. Shit was sick


Guys I had this dumb idea Monday Night. I was thinking if I loved ass play I could buy a set of butt plugs. And since each plug is progressively bigger than the next any skater can learn to ollie one. Then the next. Then the next. And progressively ollie higher and then come back inside and shove plugs in their ass. Maybe element will come across some Asian stockpile of butt plugs hidden away
In the basement of their Bangladesh factory when they buy their new factories. Just repaint them print some future nature shit on the dead stock butt plugs and call it a drop spot or whatever the fuck.
