no way this is a real account. 

We'll have to wait for Transworld Biz's next "Exposure Meter" and see if this thread creates a blip for him.

then he could become the head of the industry!

1] no such thing as a switch half cab heel. it's a nollie half cab heel if it was popped off the nose.

2] who the fuck is this dude and why should i care? anyone?

is the first scene a metaphor for the relevance of this guy's "prospective" on the skate industry?

So he is being prospected to be an insider like an outlaw biker gang? Seems like a snitch to me if he's posting this stuff on the internets. You need to be more low key and keep Club business private.

I saw the industry once in a dark alley behind an adult book store it came up to me and put his hand on my bun and said "dont turn this rape into a murder"

And id rather just watch your part and not listen to your ideology thanks

Once everyone's finished writing and submitting Franz their questions, we should all do the right thing and offer up our own outsider's amspective on the same topic.

Later on, I'll compile it and we can sell it as an e-book.

The one Brian Hoard did the switch front heel flip over it in a 411 opener?

Also wtf happened to Brian Hoard?

It was a Stamina ad if I remember correct. Chris Franzen was sick.

Last time I went to California, I saw the industry, shook its hand, then tried to leave. It tried to rape me.

The industry later bought me flowers and a chocolate cake. I accepted.

Looks like you have all the luck.  Industry and I met at a little swar-ay at a mutual friends house.  Near the end of the night it was thinning out and I decided to go to the restroom.  At this time Industry slipped me some GHB.  I came out  and tried to finish my drink and leave.  Cut to the next morning with me puking my guts out at a motel 6 bathroom with 3 shit-covered condoms littering the room. :-\

IF you are Chris Franzen What is the full name of your kid?What hospital was your kid born in? .Who shot the switch tray flip over the table? Where and what time of the day was it shot? What is your wifes maiden name? Where did you get married? Shit I have a ton of questions I will bet you can't answer. I can't seem to figure out why the hell you are writing such stupid shit.Your full of shit.......

Last night I got really confused, and genuinely believed that manicured bonsai trees were growing around my elbow. And when I tried to scrape them off there was this black tar underneath. I put one of those ankle sprain ice packs under my pillow to keep it cold. And about 4 am I had what I thought was a brilliant idea of nailing brillo pads to a cat scratching post so I could scratch my feet without contorting myself. I don't know where these lice came from, but they are playing tricks with my mind.

The brillo pad idea actually isn't that bad. My dreams suck, they usually just consist of me dreaming about sleeping.

DUMB


whats up guys. i know i havent been here in a long time and i know that a lot of you probably had questions in the past that i didnt have time to get around to and for that im extremely sorry. i dont have a lot of time with all the new projects and other things i have going on in my life right now so sorry. anyway, i wanted to come here to clear up a few misconceptions that i know a lot of you have about the skate industry. i remember a while back seeing the posts of guys like jamie thomas and henry sanchez and there "exposes" on the skate industry. i want to say that that is not the way shit is. back in my time -- im sure youve all seen my part in the la county vid -- the shit i encountered in skateboarding made me absolutely sick. i was recently talking to a friend about the videos of 2009 and which were best -- it has been a sorry year for videos. anyway, i brought up the aworkshop vid and also the flip vid, which were both terrible. my friend brought up slave and zero. i explained to him that slave and zero are not actually skate companies at all. these are mall apparel companies, just like hollister or abercrombie, and they arent apart of the world of skating and havent been for a long time. even though they make hard goods, so do companies like wal mart. are they skate companies also? no. anyway, i just wanted to throw that out there.


if anyone has any questions or comments, or wants to ask me about what ive got going on now, or anything about the la county video, or anything else, please just drop me a line on here and ill try to respond as much as i can. peace!  -chris franzen, skater in la county video

The first time I went to ASR, I shook the ol' industry hand... got the flu baaaad man, bad.
Speaking of fighting, that was the one where Greco hit Fernandez, I seen Greco running super fast and into the birdhouse booth. It was great.

Really? You were in LA County and have the nerve to talk shit about mind field? I worked at a skateshop and somehow got a copy of that video for free, watched it once, and then decided I would never have the desire to watch it again and threw it out.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”
I quit skating for a time due to piling out
