This week, Chromeball Incident blogger Eric and former SLAP editor Mark Whiteley will be bouncing shiny little prose pieces off of each other. The topic is favorite skaters and what those skaters mean to them. Be forewarned that this is probably only relevant to those aged 30 and up, so set your old man radar accordingly.

Pros & Bros Tour that he was on awhile back was on for Concrete Skateboarding magazine! Unrelated: boats and hoes.

I've been on a binge hiatus recently (insert excuses here), but I finally had some time to edit the bits and pieces I've had lying around for the last couple of months. Here's hoping for a warm winter and a happy Black Friday Eve to everyone!

Well it was officially chilly last night. Thirty five degrees according to my car. Too cold for kickflips if you ask me. Never the less I met up with Gabe, Alex, and Sam at the Webster park. Gabe put me on flow and gave me some of his old shoes, thanks Gabe! And Alex did an homage to the back smith that Chris did awhile back. Doesn't anyone skate DOWN things anymore? Call me old fashioned. -Worful

Here's some shots from Randy's wedding reception weekend that H.L. took. Even though I was present I don't know what's going on in these after party dance pictures. Meanwhile I'm very sorry I missed the rap battle between Price and some random girl in a parking lot. -Worful

To skate a real spot or not to skate a real spot, THAT is the question. But when it comes to skating with Bobby and David the answer is usually "Doesn't matter!" This is because they can make a fun session out of any spot. Furthermore they challenge the very definition of what a spot is. Saturday was no exception and the skating got very conceptual and even borderline existential. We started by meeting Joel at Bobby's and lots of baby holding ensued. Then we checked out the bank across from the mall, however a very nice security lady gave us a very gentle boot. Bobby and I casually mentioned that we knew of a bank near a small body of water, and surprisingly we ended up skating there. The bank proved not to be exactly "awesome" to skate, so Bobby and David decided to forego the bank all together and concentrate instead on what seemed to be an impossible box to skate. But skate it they did. When we were leaving I noticed that my back left tire was looking very low and Bobby spotted a nail in the top of it ("Nailed it!" -Bobby or David, I can't remember). And as soon as I popped the trunk Bobby, David, and Joel went to work like my own personal pit crew! Next up we non-spot searched in Maplewood and came across a bank and a wall with very narrow ledges to stall on. Bobby somehow managed to stall on it without breaking his toes, and Joel somehow managed to "get in the chunk" as Bobby described it. Meanwhile David dropped the heck out of it. Guy met up with us in full crusade regalia and a few blocks away he took advantage of a nice yellow curb. Finally, our last non-spot of the day, Guy had been talking about wanting to skate a flat bar. Well, we sort of found one. But the weird foam ground at this abandoned playground was more interesting. Somehow David managed to ollie a gap on it. Also him and Bobby got their buddy bar on. The next day we changed things up by skating a couple "real" spots, which were also fun. Anyway it was great to see you David! Come back soon. Also get back to me about the business venture we discussed, spotornot.com. -Worful
P.S. From help with my tire to all the people who made it out to my photo show Friday night, thanks so much you guys! I've really lucked out in the friend department, I really appreciate it.

Maybe Worf is a little too bashful to toot his own horn here but i'll happily toot it for him. He has a photo show tomorrow displaying his photos from a trip to China we took many moons ago. I've never had full nude shots of me shown before, but hell, theres a first time for everything! See you there! Toot toot!

I headed downtown with some guys on Sunday. We checked out a cool manual (and possible ledge) spot near the stadium. Then we stopped by the Occupy St. Louis movement at Kiener Plaza. I met a very nice guy who used to be in the Air Force who was telling me how he ended up protesting there. He also was very acrobatic. From there we skated to that wallride garage spot and everyone killed it. -Worful
P.S. We didn't skate when we were at Kiener, but the protesters didn't seem to mind if we did. But please be respectful if you do skate there.
