Yesterday was a great day. I worked at the Yoga center, went to a lecture on the Bhagavad Gita, and participated in Kirtan. I was flying with some deep energy and focus. So before Kirtan I went to skate, because I'd bought a new sled and my first pair of skate shoes in a long time (I'd been broke and skating old running shoes for a year). It was a beautiful day, crisp sweater/hoody kind of weather. I rolled up to the local Uni campus to skate some new spots and there was a crew of 8 dudes skating and filming. Well, 2 were skating and the rest were lurking. No one said anything to me so I just started jamming the ledge and you know these dudes are skating well, landing some sick shit so I'm giving them props and they ignore me. I asked the group of lurkers where they were from, they ignored me for a minute the one dude answers and asks if I'm local and stares at me. I just had to laugh. That would've bummed me out a few years ago but like I said I had to laugh at their clique and just keep skating. In the hour I skated I landed everything I tried with the exception of a 2 block smith. I love doing yoga then skating.
What do running shoes feel like to skate in? I can't imagine it being enjoyable.

Went to a Gonz art show but he never showed, missed him at a demo last year as well so was pretty bummed on that. Here's some photos I took

EDIT: Fuck sorry they are so massive, I don't have time now but i'll resize them later
dude i was there too, ha.. shame gonz didnt show but his stuff was pretty rad i thought. this chick i was with was super bummed he didnt  appear, she <3s him... but i can gloat to u as i did to her that i bumped into him buying art materials (presumably for this show) last week so shit dont matter to me   8)


p.s a tip for photos, u can write the dimensions u want them to be displayed in: e.g. [ img height=600]   [/img]  and the forum will magically resize for u

Haha same I was with a chick too she was pissed. Fuck! Where was he? I was thinking he'd probably be skating at some point - probably made an appearance at one of the parks in the city. Cool thanks man i'll do that now

It was like a couple hundred quid for that scroll i think. I was gonna get a postcard thinking they'd be like a fiver but they were ?20 so I passed. They were each individually done but i was also a bit put off because they were just done on the back of free british museum postcards  which i thought was a bit lame

man i hate skate cliques, now days i don't have a crew - i'll just skate with whoevers about, so if i roll up to a new park with one friend and everyone there is vibing i get second hand embarrassment from how ridiculous they are  ::)

in soho on like berwick street i think....  i swear that scroll was like 65 or 85, the ones with drawings/paintings on were more like 200. but yeah i was hoping for a cheap postcard too ha... they were all sold though, so people were obviously keen to pay ...

 Probably, i can't remember what it was but i looked at a couple of price tags in the couple of hundreds so guessed it was the same. Really want neckface to do a show in the city, hopefully he'll actually show (looking at you Gonz!!!)

I was skating in old classic new balance running shoes. they're really flat and have no grip. I'm really digging the Emerica Flicks though, holy shit. I get stuck in my ways and all I've skated for years are Vans. These shoes with memory foam are awesome!

and yeah, cliques are weak. All of my homies from back when either don't skate and those who do, even though I like skating with them, are into heroin. Even if they're sober I've got to worry about some shit going down and I just don't like to be around that anymore. It's all about skating!

Been a fan of his art ever since I first saw it years ago, why else would I want to see an artists show?

RE: Gonz -

I've posted this before, but I love talking about it at any chance  ;D




All I did was ask him to sign my note pad (which I always keep in my bag), dude ended up drawing that for me. So psyched. I'd imagine something like this at his galleries would go for quite a bit.

I always used to day dream about sneaking into some progressive modern art show and taking a dump on the floor when no ones around with some wire around it and a little plaque, then sitting back and listening to how it speaks to the audience about our western consumer society or about how we treat the earth etc

I sent berra an email about joining scientology and being pressured into it to try and bait him into sending me something that would make me laugh.  He sends back 2 huge paragraphs with reasonable advice....it wasn't very funny

I had jury duty last week, and got selected for a jury which is eating up chunks of my time this week and next. Kind of a hassle, but minor. The good side of this is that I am basically getting paid overtime for my jury hours since I'm cramming in my regular 40 hours in wherever I have to these weeks. Also, maybe its just an NY thing, but there was a lot of hot jury duty trim to converse with while waiting. Its a shame that Justice is blind.
