Contrary to what his board says, Nate Lacoste is not the "worst." Actually he's quite good. Here's an effortlessly stylish frontside 180. Speaking of the worst, here's Randy doing the exact same trick switch. What a hack. Photos by Worful.

What exactly is David up to in that alley? Will the neighbors complain? Why is everyone so color coordinated? Where did Drew get that great Joel Dodson costume? The answers to these questions may never be revealed. Anyway, it's good to have you back Drewser!

Special thanks to Joe Herbert and Jack for their fine craftsmanship at this sick new spot. Also thanks to Joe, Ben Goeke, and others like them who work hard to make spots like this, the tennis courts, and others fun places to skate. Backside 180 nosegrind by Joe, photo by Worful.

The aftershocks of this recent session are still being felt. In order of appearance: backside nosegrind by Guy Gray, 5-0 by Joel Dodson, feeble grind by David with Jack filming, boneless over the ledge by Art, and a backside smith grind by Bobby. Photos by Worful.

Most of the time I'm pretty busy taking photos and being an overall nerd. But occasionally I skate too. Here's a "tre bomb" on an almost imperceptible bank. Randy taught me how to do them. Photo courtesy of the amazing Bobby. -Worful

The session at Shepard yesterday started off simple enough with a Ben Goeke approved obstacle, which David and Jack Donze broke in with some wallrides of the front and backside variety. But then Randy had to go and ruin everything by getting all serious about it. At which point Jack declared the session "dead" and did a coffin all the way home. Photos by Worful.

A good sized crew met up at the blind school ledges yesterday. Here's Nate Broussard with a comically long crooked grind, and Art McAuliffe with his signature wallride nollie out. Photo and video wizards Ben Karpinski and Mark Stewart were there catching all the action for the Birdhouse site. Meanwhile, David swears nothing was going on behind that dumpster. Photos by Worful.

So Randy got in town this weekend, along with the rest of the guys he was traveling here with. Since they're awesome, he decided to take them to one of the most awesome places ever: City Museum. Nate Broussard definitely seemed to be enjoying it. Randy's girlfriend Lucy didn't seem too impressed by his antics though, but Worful was ready to become his manager. Photos by Worful and Lucy.

We're pretty sure our pal Drew Etzkorn did this before Austin Stephens, as seen in the great new Toy Machine video "Lurk Fest." But we'll let it slide. Pun! Ollie up, over, and out to backside tailslide in Kansas City, Missouri. Photo by Worful.
Birdhouse boys and Pretty pals Randy Ploesser and Nate Lacoste have posted a nice video of their trip from sunny California to overcast St. Louis, Missouri. Check back here or on the Birdhouse site for more videos and photos from the trip.

David and Bobby express their joy for nice weather and show their true colors with this pole jam over a coffin. It's a metaphor for the rebirth of spring and the death of winter. Get it? Forget it. Photo by Worful, Photoshop improvements by Bobby.
