Good luck! I've been on a wait list for housing for years so I know how brutal these times can be.

Been on the street in the past and it sucks. If I didn't have my family to help me out and pay my security deposit when I got out of rehab I likely would have gone right back. Flea You're a weird dude sometimes but youre one of us and I like you. I'd hate to see you become "banned from the house".

I threw a tenner in for now, will throw in a few more when my check comes through or if the slots treat me well this morning. If everyone reading who has ever laughed or scratched their head in confusion at an Uncle Flea post throws $5-10 this will be wrapped up by the end of the week.

@Uncle Flea

would you be ok with someone tweeting your gofundme at thrasher? and other skatemags?

i wasn't sure how you'd feel about it, so i thought i'd ask for consent first.

i can't believe i set up a twitter account, lol.

ok flea, i hope you're not mad, but i just tweeted at a few skateoutlets about this to share your link hopefully. if you are mad that's alright, i just hope this doesn't bring unwanted attention, but hopefully funds. here's my tweet. i probably could have @ more and to better people, i just tried to get it out there(actually tweeted this twice with different @s):

https://twitter.com/dentalplanbeats/status/1494083692423172097

these were my first posts and i have zero followers or reach, but let's see how it goes.

EDIT: just notice thebuntlive on twitter isn't thebuntlive actually and not about skating. eh, fuck it.

EDIT2: if anyone knows how to use twitman good any help to reach more people on there, maybe via the right hashtags, would be appreciated

Is skate twitter really even that popular? I would maybe try Instagram as that seems to be the social media platform that most skaters use. I believe I've seen some footy of flea skating a DIY and it was decent, so maybe add a few clips or a good still shot to draw attention?

Just stoned brainstorming here.

Won $15 on blackjack this morning so I passed it along.

Nice to hit the 1k mark but we still have a long way to go if we want to hit the goal. Even if you can only spare $5 every bit helps. I think if we keep rolling and get a few good pals to chip in when they can then we should be able to do this. Don't let it die out and if you've already donated but find yourself unexpectedly coming into or saving money (as I did this morning) then please pass it along!

Im just checking in. I know some of you might be thinking that I could have gone off the rails with all these things that are happening at one time. But I’m ok.

I’m going to pull this off.


I been so busy holding on to this crazy ride I’m on. Things are right on the edge of woah.
Getting the funds from the gofundme was extremely difficult because I am not in control of my bank but I pulled it off. They are on the way.

 I can’t believe it is working.
The truth is that if it wasn’t for you all it would not be ok.

I’m working on big thank you to Pals but it might take a little bit because I’m so busy.

I just wanted to check in and let you all know that I haven’t failed and I’m not going too.

I’m looking at two places tomorrow in Lynn. On Monday I hope to place the 1000 on this one place in Salem that’s guaranteed to take me.

I need to be in SF. I need to be on those hills.

I want to help people out there help people get off the street and into their own custom programs of recovery.

I have a recovery program that has worked for me and like 4 or 5 of my friends and I’m going to try and make it mainstream.

I’ve edited this like 6x and I’m out of time now.

I’ll try to be on later I saw I have private messages here and I’ll get back to you.

Thank you all I luv you all. I hope all your hopes and dreams come true.

I been trying to get one hr exercise every day on my board. Ill be in Boston hopefully tonight in the streets   If I get time. Otherwise I’ll be at Salem park right before sundown if any locals wanna talk.

I been meeting pals irl often lately and I’d like to continue.

Idk what else to say rn except that I OWE all of you and I’ll never forget this. Only a few people have had my back like this.

Talk to you all tonight

Peace luv and kick flip crooks

Címon, PALSÖ Weíve got Flea over the 1st bump, but thereís a ways to go yet.
We can DO THIS!
We can actually affect positive change in the life of a REAL PERSON we interact with all the time on here.
You will get to see your donation at work in the real world.
Whether itís a fin or a franklin, please give if you can.
This majestic beast of a PAL needs to be somewhere comfortable & dignified that they can call their own.
Much love & luck to you, Flea.

Let's keep it rolling folks. I know shit isn't great but most of us can spare $5-10. This is a chance to make a real, direct impact in another person's life and help them when they're not in a position to help themselves right now.

$200 from another awesome pal btw. Out yourselves.

Edit: https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=120739.0

Everything goes straight to Flea and you get a new deck. Win-win situation.

Edit within an edit: I should clarify if you've already donated you are eligible. Same rules apply. $5 per entry, send me a screenshot of your donation and you go into the raffle.

I donít like to be confrontational but I have to ask this straight because thereís no other way to address it.

Iíve been here reading the board, clicking around different topics, while trying to decide in the back of my mind how much of a donation I could make to you. I am an orphan and I was almost homeless once so I get it.

Meanwhile, youíve been on here talking about your upcoming tattoo appointment and guitar accessories you plan to buy.

Am I missing something?

dude no one forces you to contribute. flea is our buddy and we asked him to go this route because we want to see him having his own roof over his head. if you got a problem with that then you don't need to engage with it.

i'm not giving you a timeline or rundown on everything, but i remember when he talked about wanting to buy a guitar and gear he didn't know that he would actually get accepted for so many places and also didn't know each one required a security deposit to get considered. pretty sure since then there hasn't been a new guitar. and even if he got a guitar, that's fleas thing. i would have no problem if he had some money left to burn on stuff. he had to hold back for years.

@HugeBodBoyle Do you have any reach on skate twitter? I feel like this would do alright there but I've only ever been a lurker and I could never totally figure out how to follow the right people. Sorry to throw the spotlight on you. I just remember your account was one of the ones that I followed when I was checking it all out.

Am I missing something?

I bought the tattoo before Covid I waited over 18 months before hitting the chair. Iím supporting skater owned business too that supported all of skateboarding.

It needed to happen. I was not going to move forward with that tattoo. I saved like crazy and put like 100 bucks a month into that for 6 months.



The guitar was definitely a mistake. When I got the news I had it too many days to return to pawn. Definitely was like damn. Especially now my car is an issue.

Good thing school is remote.

 Things were not supposed to happen quickly like this. I definitely put myself in it and Iím on my way out of it because of pals and amazing counselors and my drive to get there.

Yo Itís ok if you donít wanna donate pal. I didnít think anyone was going to really do Itís no big deal. I asked for help I got help. Itís a rare thing and a beautiful thing.
I thought about hitting the return button on the cash.
 I donít feel like I deserve it.
I feel like I donít deserve housing sometimes.
 Itís going to be a positive thing for more than myself.

Iím going to pass it forward when its my turn to step up like always and keep it moving in a positive space.

I understand where youíre coming from for sure.

I understand where youíre coming from for sure.

I was going to PM this to you but it might be better for everyone to see it.

I was in a similar spot a decade ago. Was strung out, had just gotten out of jail so my car was impounded, and I had nowhere to go so I was sitting in parking garage stairwell (to get out of the cold, it was late November) reading a newspaper. The world had utterly kicked my ass after I got out of the military. This older lady walked past, stopped, turned around, and then walked back and handed me a $50 bill. She didn't say anything... I was so shocked I think I mumbled "ya sure?!" and then she was gone.

Normally I would have gone straight to a dealer and probably been back in that stairwell nodding off an hour later, but this time I went across the street to subway and got a hot sandwich, a pack of smokes, and then gave the rest to my friend who let me crash with him. I wish I could say that I stopped then and there but I didn't... It took a few more months and a lot more misery before I actually went to rehab, but that moment was one of the first times I can remember actually moving in the right direction after years of free fall. There was some intangible change in me and it started a wave of better decision making that started slow but gained momentum and eventually took me to shore. Sometimes it just takes someone giving you a helping hand and a little hope to get that wave started.

So don't feel guilty about this. I am super lucky that I had the VA to provide me with resources when I needed them, but not everyone has something like that to catch them when they fall. Every single person whos donating is doing it out of love and because they know you got this homie. You do what you need to do, and do it how you need to do it. As long as you're moving in the right direction that's all that matters.
