I met up with David, Bobby, and Joel yesterday at Shitside. At first it was just them, but by the time I got there a ton of people showed up and it was super fun to watch. Speaking of fun, have you SEEN the new quarter pipe there? Well Joel has, and he also rock and rolled it yesterday. Bobby got a kickflip and an ollie up to nose stall as well. He started trying some other stuff, but someone was distracting him I think. Then, before Bobby and I headed up the street to Harry's for "Burger Mania," he wanted to try and recreate Bobby Taylor's badassness. But somehow it just didn't have the same effect. -Worful

Well friends, I have to say it's been a crazy couple of months for me. I have hundreds of photos I need to share, stories I need to tell, and blogs about blogs I need to blog about (as I stroke my chin wondering how I can bring more postmodern self-reference into my blogging style). I am overwhelmed and exasperated. In my lack of ability recently to post anything of actual substance (or anything at all), I will attempt to keep the hungry dogs of the interweb at bay by presenting something of pure, mindless entertainment. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, a digicam video of Mr. Mike Anderson savagely attacking Mr. Sam Mcguire with a full can of beer as he attempts to pee out of a hotel window at 5 in the morning somewhere by the airport in Indianapolis. In these media saturated times of overnight internet pseudo-fame, 1 million hits on Youtube can be as simple as taking a cold one to the dome. Take notes kids, you have to make it in this brave new world somehow.

As long as I've known Joe, Action Jackson, Joey J, Crazy Joe or whatever other nickname you know him by, he's been good at skateboarding. To this day, I see him learn a new trick every time we skate, and I was lucky enough to catch him ripping one of his newer ones at a recent session. So for everyone out there in Internetland here is Joe Jackson performing trick 99372L, or as we call it: a frontside tailblock.

I was totally blowing it tonight when David, Bobby, and I went skating. First I missed Bobby's backside flip down a little three when I was filming with his video camera. Then I shot his ollie down a big three comically late. I like this shot of David's boneless, but I'm not sure if I timed it right or not. He kept looking at me like a disappointed father who's son can't through a decent pitch. Oh well, better luck next time.

WTF!? Worful and his art made it into the most recent issue of Thrasher? The end must be nigh.
Or maybe it's just that Phelps has a soft side after all?
Whatever the case, while you're out grabbing your canned goods and other survival necessities, go ahead and pick up an issue.

I met up with David to skate yesterday. We met at this random parking lot near Bobby's house, hoping to meet up with him later. There wasn't much to skate there, but it was fun. Then it got even more fun when Bobby rolled up on his "hog." One of us jokingly brought up the idea of hippy hopping Bobby's scooter, and it wasn't long before him and David did just that. -Worful
Twelve years ago or so, if you would've told me that a rather credulous young ripper named Bobby Taylor would one day become a nuclear engineer, my response would've been something like: "Are you out of your damn skull!?"
My how wrong I would've been... And it gives me great pleasure to admit so. Bobby, congrats, and it's really good seeing you on your board again. Let me know if you want to go shoot something else.
So, ladies and gents, here's Mr. Taylor with an authoritative noseblunt slide to fakie, and at a spot we used to skate together, twelve or so years ago no less... -Grizz
