Tonight Joel, Bobby, and Drew came and picked me up to go to the Granite City indoor park for a nice session. Joel turned heads when he turned this ramp upside down, Bobby set up a gap and heelflipped it, and then Drew went way overboard with this backside crailslide. Fantastic! Then we headed back home and listened to Obama handle his business on the radio. Not a bad night. -Worful
Editor's note: The title of this post was thought of by none other than Bobby. I'm so pissed I didn't think of it first, thanks Bob!

Jabari Pendleton and has some clips from the Ezekiel Northwest tour that I went on a couple years back. A skate video the way it should be. Oh yeah and there's a Joey Pepper part. No big deal.

Joel has put together a benefit concert for earthquake relief in Haiti, please come if you can! Bands playing include Joel's reunited (if only for the night) Tell Tale Heart, Sam Wade, and Dear Vincent. It will be at Antarctica (5226 Gravois Ave.) and starts at 9pm (doors open at 8pm). Tickets at the door are $10 (the venue is cash only), and all ticket proceeds go to Red Cross. Thanks for doing this Joel, and thanks in advance to everyone for helping out.

I found out about the blog GET AT ME! today. It's a Kansas City blog that Sam McGuire posts on that he describes as "It's like the KC Pretty blog except it's only crappy cell phone photos and no actual useful content." Sounds great to us Sam. This entry, taken from a fateful night in which I managed to yell at a homeless person, renegade a beer in White Castle, and drop-kick a crave case into the side of Jack Donze's head in the matter of a half an hour, prompted a van full of the Escapist team to call me at 10:30pm on their way back from Miami to go with them to White Castle by my house and shotgun beers with them before I knew about said blog. I'm glad the internet age has allowed my late-night retardation to be so pervasive and inspiring. Oh yeah, Malto posts there too. OMG!

I met up with Bobby, David, and Drew and headed to the Plan Nine skatepark again today, to seek refuge from the bitter cold. Guy, Randy, Joel, and Jake met us there, and we also ran into Bobby Taylor, Larry, Chris, Reggie, and Jake when we got there. It was a super fun and super crowded session. Jake debuted his winter beard and David debuted his new winter haircut. Meanwhile, I got to shoot some video with David's great new point and shoot camera, and Jake and Joel got some good stuff on their new portable video cameras as well. I'm hoping we can put an edit up soon of some stuff that went down. I also managed to get a photo of Jake's sick ollie over the gap. Go Jake! -Worful

I got a package from Girl today intended to support the fundraiser last Tuesday. It includes two "where the wild things are" edition boards (7 3/4" and 7 5/8" wide) 4 t-shirts (2 medium, 2 large) 2 adjustable Girl hats, and a shitload (no pun intended) of stickers.
I'm willing to sell all of this gear for $100. Thats a good deal right? All proceeds go towards the kingshighway benefit fund, which after a couple extra contributions now comes to $1889.34. If you are interested email the the Pretty address as seen on the right there. Thanks!

While I was up in Chicago over Christmas, Rob H. was kind enough to take me to his secret hangout. In turn Santa was good to Rob this Christmas and got him his very own FLiP camera. Now we can all celebrate the first of hopefully many RobEdit's.
