say what you want about jamie, eveyone has there own opnion.

but here is a fact:

jamie is the only guy in skateboarding industry that has honestly gone out of his way to help me out since i have been sponsorless. he sends me boards when i need them. jamie is just a straight forward guy, wich is better then dealing with someone who beats around the bush instead  of giving you an honest answer.

keegan has a fs lip/disaster on a qp to giant qp transfer thing a couple months ago. i remember reading ryan smith saying jaimie thomas drove them to that big rail that he crooked grinds and told him to do it. and im sure the riders can do what they want but they see that his ideas 'work' for what they are trying to acheive, so they stick with them. theres no way jaimie thomas is in charge of chris cole anymore, its the other way around if anything.
we toked a marley and i split back to the park, minding my own busineess when a rollerblader mean mugs..i let it go.

I've met him a few times and he's always super unfriendly.

yeah, Thomas seems kind of gay, but look what happened to mystery.  As soon as they seperated they all seem lazy as shit regarding footage/photos.  Mystery vid soon? i doubt it

Um, he is just a person. He is a retarded asshole just like all of you are. Myself included.
I'd understand this being intresting if you guys knew him, but this is just gay city usa.
His Welcome to Hell part rules.


If you HONESTLY have a problem with how this guys does business, don't buy it. If you think this guy is bad though, then you don't know much of what you are talking about. He's runs his business like 80% of the industry does. Like a 30yr old kid asshole.

It's true. It's no different than Antihero trying to corner the flannel shirt/Half-Cabs/Burnside market.

Every company has it's image, even if they try to be subtle about it. It's there.

No Anti Hero is a bunch of friends, and no one changed to ride for Anti Hero. You should be ashamed of yourself for saying something so stupid.

I am not saying that Julien doesn't have a market but he is not forcing anyone to change who they are to ride for Anti Hero, they are who they are no bullshit. Every skate company has an image and that is fine, my problem is forcing people to be something they are not, that reeks of control freak and disgusts me.

True, but like what you said. Some people like getting bossed around. With skateboading growing, making more money,and becoming more americana, we are only waiting for more football players in skateboarding. Sucks.

Andrew Allen?  I remember him switch heelflip front boarding rails, now he's doing a bunch of wallies and wearing flannels...also, I remember when Tony Miorana was an arty vegetarian who listened to Joy Division (although he did change a while before he got on Anti-Hero).

Did Julian Stranger force these people to change? That is what I am saying no he didn't, he didn't send Andrew Alllen a package of cloths and tell him how to wear them.

Of course but that is just Julian, if you watch 1800 skypager and then go watch new footage Julian is the same exact person. Now go watch early Jamie Thomas footage to now.....

i wasn't really trying to compare those two guys.  Julien truly does not give a fuck, I just think anti-hero takes that whole attitude a little too far sometimes with the whole being dicks to people, setting skateparks on fire, and whatnot.  Is sucks that a lot of kids jock that attitude and behave like little assholes, but i guess its not Anti-hero's fault, they're just doing their thing.  Jamie, on the other hand, appears to be somewhat out of his mind.  All of the weird shit people say about him is pretty much true.  We had a guy shoot a Louisiana article for Transworld back in the day.  People NEVER come here to shoot skate photos, so it was a long time coming.  Anyway, the article was shot and laid out, and then out of nowhere we heard that it wasn't going to happen.  The word was Jamie was tired of all of these "hometown scene" articles in Transworld and said something to the effect of "why should these nobody guys in some little town get coverage, when me and my riders could get coverage doing the same tricks at the same spots".  it was my first introduction into "skateboard politics" and it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.   still, he seemed nice when I met him.  He gave me a fallen shirt "just to wash your car with or something".  I almost told him "no thanks" before I caught myself and graciously took the shirt..no matter how much of a kook someone is, if they're nice to me I can't help but be nice back...
