Hey, stop it, stop it, I know you missed me but hugging is uncalled for. It was only 2 weeks or so.
Went out to Tallahassee (thats the capitol city ya know) with a bunch of my freaky little friends and helped shoot a new skate video. High styling, free flying, boogie-on-down-till-ya-puke-yer-guts kinda stuff. I need to edit the little monster and then you'll be able to order it on-line. It'll also be available through a little tiny ass ad in the back of your cheaper skate magazines. Lot's of street stuff and a coupla amped bowls. You can watch my friend Crater eat it trying for a kickflip backside transfer.
Actually to tell you the truth I wasn't too into the skate thing. Oh sure I popped a coupla inverts for the camera but while everyone else was discovering Zen and the art of the half-pipe, I spent most of my time in the state library. Discovered some of the half hidden truths of the Sunshine State (including the Florida Skunk Ape, the coral castle and the fact that some people believe the Garden of Eden is in Florida.) Make sure ya check them out.
Also got my first T-shirt order so here's a big Monsterz and Freakz howdy-do to Fred. Wear that shirt with pride up there in lovely Cimarron Kansas. Also hi to Lan who didn't buy a T-shirt but e-mailed me to say that while I have a great style I lack something in the presentation department.. Why then thank you . . .I guess . . .
