Whatever happened to Erik Bush after this video, does he still skate? I know Slap has a lot of people all over to talk shit.

What do you guys think?

Jamie Foy is 27
His dad just turned 80.
Meaning Foy senior was 71 when Jamie graduated high school.

Today I pondered, is Jamie Foy the Theo Von of skateboarding?

Which is worse? People who quit skating because it's too hard, or people who can skate but quit once they find out they won't be going pro or getting rich/famous from it.

The second.
Skating is supposed to be fun so quitting because it's too hard seems pretty reasonable.

Should I continue attempts to save my marriage for the sake of my child, or should I stand by and watch it decay into resentment since she won't meet me halfway.

But I pondered this yesterday too. and the day before that. and the day before that. etc.

Why do we have to sort of chew foods like yogurt which are already really soft? My guess was to mix in some saliva to predigest it and make it easier to swallow.

Too hard.

It's ok to have dreams about being the ledge god of the year 2000 even though you're just a violent drug addict queer who can flip into shit.

It's ok to realize you can't afford 4 or 5 seven point fives a month because you only get one from the local with no team

Theres dozens of easier manipulated wiz kids running around slaying granite switch who won't make your brand smell like Italian subs and a old bus port from rotten denim and rusted studs.

It's better to be a bike messenger anyway. You don't gotta sell anything but drugs and fake drugs

Smack a taxi or two with a kryptonite Lock and you forget about who black balled you at the b&b

Why is it so hard to stop eating chips or ice cream? Sitting down with a bag or a pint is dangerous.

I ate a whole bag of chips yesterday and was wondering the same thing.  I think itís because the after taste makes you uncomfortable as it fades away and the only way to stop that is to bring the taste back up to the max by eating just one more

Eating a whole bag is the responsible thing to do. What are you gonna do just eat some and throw the rest out? That's fukn wasteful. Consider yourself lucky you don't live somewhere where icecream only comes in 2L tubs.

That observation about the aftertaste fading is right on. It's like I need that saltiness and savoriness to stay on my tongue.

I think I'm doing okay in the responsibility department then because I will often come close to finishing off a whole bag or pint in one sitting. I'll leave just a little to console myself that I didn't eat the whole thing like a glutton with no self-control.

The fda adds additive B I think it's called to junk food. It makes your brain think it needs said products to survive. It's why big tobacco and DXLSF is so popping.

NB claims they don't need it and they're a true east new england based business.

Salem's the most skate blessed place I've been since well before 911.

The attitude of the public towards at least my skating is outstanding.

The thing I have going on in my home town is such a departure from the past it mounts to a near religious experience near every recent session.

When I think I'm going to be bounced people ask me to do a trick andi deny them high fives blaming sweat and smile at them to kill that thought.

Sometimes a boomer gen tourist will fuck with me and refuse to move 2'... say something like it's a free country......but i have back up curbs upon back up curbs.
They exist in near total harmony within their environment so Ill talk light shit and dip.

I wanna know...

What's changed in the chemical makeup of general public to make them go beyond not giving a shit to being entranced and so complimentary?

Or is it white boy day?

You know how beaches have reports for what the waves are like for surfers? They should that for skateparks, so you get a breakdown of how crowded it is, if there are lots of scooter kids or lurkers, if the park is wet or dry, stuff like that. But I guess that would require someone getting paid to do it and what city would actually create that job?

At this point (probably bought shit for like 25 nephews,nieces, friends kids) I just know to ask the parents what to get. Don't spend too much it will most likely be in the trash by Xmas.
Also books.

I second asking the parents.

Also something that isnít noisy and doesnít take up a lot of space for the parentsí sake.

Going to third this haha. Despite us saying it multiple times, our grandparents always want to buy new little toys for our kids, but they just move onto the next thing in a day or 2 and it just takes up space. Asking the parents is always appreciated. Maybe there's a specific toy they're already into like magnet tiles and they would want an extra refill of pieces or something. They'll gladly let you know though!

Pondering what it means to be anti-war right now. Losing sleep over it actually. I should probably stop reading the news compulsively but that feels wrong also.

I been grinding like crazy trying to make money to pay for the rehearsal space that's full of my gear.
The recording is done so mofos with full time jobs don't have their part again.
I can't get these fools to practice when we're behind on rent.

This is a lose lose lose.

Idk how I'm going to be able to make this happen. I already miracled $300 from selling my albums.

Totally fuckin fucked.

I gotta find this shit f
Before the 20th. Then I'm emptying the space before the next month.

It sucks I can't even trust my closest homies to come up with 140 bucks a month

There's a store called Famous Footwear
