  1. Nike Airforce ones, preferred in red. Good call on the Sal23 shoe too. Duffs Strombolies made of hemp. My first pair of Air Jordans in 85?
  2. I am not a big flag waver, but thsi is something in contrast to a little rant I made earlier. The following, from a Canadian newspaper, is worth sharing. Its subject is "America: The Good Neighbor" widespread but only partial news coverage was given recently to a remarkable editorial broadcast from Toronto by Gordon Sinclair, a Canadian television commentator. What follows is the full text of his trenchant remarks as printed in the Congressional Record: "This Canadian thinks it is time to speak up for the Americans as the most generous and possibly the least appreciated people on all the earth. Germany, Japan and, to a lesser extent, Britain and Italy were lifted out of the debris of war by the Americans who poured in billions of dollars and forgave other billions in debts. None of these countries is today paying even the interest on its remaining debts to the United States. When France was in danger of collapsing in 1956, it was the Americans who propped it up, and their reward was to be insulted and swindled on the streets of Paris. I was there. I saw it. When earthquakes hit distant cities, it is the United States that hurries in to help. This spring, 59 American communities were flattened by tornadoes. Nobody helped. The Marshall Plan and the Truman Policy pumped billions of dollars into discouraged countries. Now newspapers in those countries are writing about the decadent, warmongering Americans. I'd like to see just one of those countries that is gloating over the erosion of the United States dollar build its own airplane. Does any other country in the world have a plane to equal the Boeing Jumbo Jet,the Lockheed Tri-Star, or the Douglas DC10? If so, why don't they fly them? Why do all the International lines except Russia fly American Planes? Why does no other land on earth even consider putting a man or woman on the moon? You talk about Japanese technocracy, and you get radios. You talk about German technocracy, and you get automobiles. You talk about American technocracy, and you find men on the moon-not once, but several times-and safely home again. You talk about scandals, and the Americans put theirs right in the store window for everybody to look at. Even their draft-dodgers are not pursued and hounded. They are here on our streets, and most of them, unless they are breaking Canadian laws, are getting American dollars from ma and pa at home to spend here. When the railways of France, Germany and India were breaking down through age, it was the Americans who rebuilt them. When the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central went broke, nobody loaned them an old caboose. Both are still broke.I can name you 5000 times when the Americans raced to the help of other people in trouble. Can you name me even one time when someone else raced to the Americans in trouble? I don't think there was outside help even during the San Francisco earthquake.Our neighbors have faced it alone, and I'm one Canadian who is damned tired of hearing them get kicked around. They will come out of this thing with their flag high. And when they do, they are entitled to thumb their nose at the lands that are gloating over their present troubles. I hope Canada is not one of those." Stand proud, America!

    fruit boots.

    I have been skating for 9 years, and I can throw down with the best of them. On several occasions when a mouthy bladers steps up I have offered to show them up on their own shit. I have no real experience on those things, but instantsly was able to skate the whole park better that the mouthy little pests. I could grind waist high rails. It's easy and it looks dumb. With that said and done, if I get snaked by bladers then there is no mercy for the rest of the session. Straight arms, clotheslines, anything goes once I get snaked. Let the Texas deathmatch begin. Now bikes on the other hand get total respect (except for that they fuck up my ledges and coping.)
  4. Wow, nice photos. If I lived there I would be out shooting a ton of photos of all of the madness. That has to be pretty surreal to wake up and look out your window and see that!
  5. Wow, those dudes are so fresh! I want Other to tattoo me. On metal, paper, whatever.. that is some skill.
  6. Manifest Destiny bites us in the ass. For centuries this country in which we live has profitted from the downfalls and exploitation of others around the world. We called it Manifest Destiny and we claimed all that we could. We turned the other cheek when it didn't turn a profit and we turned out a nation of self-entitled halftruth fed robots. My deepest sadness extends to the victims in this world of capitalistic humanity. No one deserves this. Please go out of your way to show everyone courtesy and love.
  7. Wow, that Colt car finally left the yard. That car sat still for months in one of the yards that I stroll through. Nice post. TLOK!
  8. burn it, cd's are cheap.floppies are crap.

    Funny or depressing? I have to say that I thought it was really entertaining, and made in a very voyeuristic way. The bunnysuit kid is my favorite character.
  10. Nice call Dosoner, that Stone Brewery is the best. Their IPA is SOOOO good. When it comes to malt liquor I like Schlitz. The bull is dope.
  11. I just got my setup all connected.. I got a pair of Gemini PT-1000s, Stanton Craze cartridges, and a Behringer DX100 mixer. The setup works pretty well, for what I am using it for. I just mix and scratch for my own entertainment, with a very random collection of records. Some of my favorites lately have been Mingus, Hancock, DJ Krush, and some sittar records. I have a bunch of 80's records too, those are fun to fuck around with. Admittedly I suck, and the few times I haev played publicly upon request I have titled myself DJ Whogivsafuk!, because I'm just having fun. IMO a turntablist is someone who uses their skills on a turntable so well that they are using it as an instrument to create original music and sounds. Turntablism is based in hip hop, but is going in several directions. Z-trip gets me really excited with his unusual mixes.
  12. Muscle Men (those weird little pink guys) Stretch Armstrongs green enemy, he slowly pulled apart http://www.12ozprophet.com/ubb//frown.gif'>
  13. Been there Gnes, and I don't want to ever go back. All I really got out of it was a piece of paper, and a sour memory tainted by the evil bureacratic(?) robots.
