Sadly, Bobby had not been fully aware of the damage he'd been doing to the Earth with his relentless ripping. But lately he's been more conscious of his surroundings and has tried to skate in more of an environmentally friendly way. Backside wallride behind the foliage, Photo by Worful.

Minutes after getting served on a nasty rail, Drewser still had it in him to risk life and limb – and tree limb too, plus maybe even a case of Hepatitis A – by trying to spring over this sewage stream. Despite catching a branch to the face, he gave it a few more tries before wilsoning out with a splash. Like the hero he is, he took it in stride. Or maybe he's just hoping he'll end up with a cool mutation or something.
Additionally, the car ride home was quite a spectacle, as a bog trog clad only in boxers could be heard calling his girlfriend to tell her to "get out the hose" for when he got home. That concludes this bog blog. -Grizzler

Good evening ladies and germs! Here's an oldie but a goodie: Raw Meat, an Illinois video from back in the day featuring a part from Bobby. Looks like he enjoyed getting hurt back then as much as he does today. Some things never change folks!!! [Audience laughs, applauds in acknowledgement.]
Editor's note: Bobby wanted us to mention that "Mike lentz is one of the rippingest dudes ever" and that the above video was brought to you by the fine folks at Kolor Skateboards.

Mike Burnett, the guy who single-handedly saved Thrasher, sent us a little book he just put out entitled The Outskirts of Awesome. It features photos from trips to Russia, Europe, China and Skatopia, as well as yet another fine example of his perceptive and humorously self-deprecating writing. If you're a person who appreciates good things and likes to support good people, do yourself a favor and pick one up from his site.

Happy 4th of July AND happy birthday to Bobby! That's right, Bobby's birthday is July 4th, which means that neither Obama nor McCain can question his patriotism. He celebrated in style by setting off some metaphorical fireworks at the blind school ledges with these explosive sequences. Randy was much more literal with his celebration, and Guy celebrated in his own way as usual. A good time was had by all.

Fellow head-scratchers and ponderers of life's mysteries, if you're at all like us, you've often wondered just where the hell Jon Schwartz gets his zen-like skateboard talents. If the above photo didn't spell it out for you: FLOWER POWER!!! That's right, who would've guessed that our very own perma-smiled hockey-checking shredder is really a dirty hippie at heart?
Perhaps your third eye is more attuned than ours or you already picked up on his good vibrations, but for us, it puts everything in a new light. Check it out, man:
For this groovy switch biggie, brother Jon finished up his afternoon meditation and burst out of the commune gates with such speed that his crown of lotus flowers flew off like a dove and his tie-dyed robe burned away like Humboldt's phinest. He gracefully ascended the bank as if it were some stairway to heaven, and popped his board off with more force than a pig's riot gun back in '69. Even the birds stopped their singing in reverence as his board spun cleaner than the wheels of a solar-powered VW bus. When he decided to end his levitation, Jon chose an appropriate spot on planet earth and touched down as softly as a rainbow. An intense yet soothing smell of incense could be detected at the spot for days afterwards.
All photos by Worful, peace.
