After years of Facebook friendship he suddenly deleted me recently so I'll assume this thread has something to do with that. Perhaps he peaced out the industry because he didn't like being talked about.

Damn i could easily see this guy on Habitat replacing the milking it master Tim O Connor.... I could see him on Think too.

tim o'connor says he is a weird guy in the mosaic commentary. if he was weird enough for tim to call him out on it on record and dude was off alien shortly after, he must just be a kook

You should use your skills of persuasion to hypnotize him into being your friend again Dallas.

Let me help clear this up. this is my de-virginizing post, so if you think you've seen me on here before , you haven't, and hi Dallas, don't ask me what facebook does, it's buggy and deletes who it wants, you're always cool in my book. anyways.....

I "disappeared" because I didn't want to do the whole slow painful death spiral that most people do. You know how you see someone going from riding for DC, then to say......Osiris (no offense, but a step down in my book) then Recs (if you remember them) and eventually everybody starts their own company, and they're like "hey guys!!!! this is going to be great!!!!. It's going to be me and 5 other washed up dudes (no offense to some of my old friends who are still in denial) acting like we're still on the upswing!!, it's gonna be huge!!". but it never is. I've seen dozens of these last ditch efforts come and go and it's not for me. If I'm going to bust my ass for something, I'm going to get rewarded for it.

okay...let's clear up some stuff. I think I asked Zasflasky, not Russ to look into City, not Think for me. I've always liked City, they're not in the big leagues like the other guys, but they're a cool company full of young energetic underdogs.

listen to the mosaic commentary again. Tim calls me weird at first, then corrects himself, and says I'm not weird, I'm just so normal that its weird. I don't think any of the Alien/Habitat guys from the Mosaic tour (where I first met Tim) were used to someone who just wanted to live quietly and had a kind of "serious" attitude. like a "normie", not your typical skate misfit type. most people who knew me know that I've gotten into plenty of bad things in my life, but I kept it separate from skating.

 That tour was horrible. I was so excited to be on tour with my idols and all the guys I wanted to be on a team with and build something great. I had no idea everyone there would be so jaded, negative and catty. it was weird. totally soul crushing for a bright eyed young kid from canada. I cannot tell you how many times the guys would storm into the hotel room with hookers and whatever drugs.booze they could get their hands on. fuck those guys. Danny Renaud is a great skater with excellent style and a lot of flair, but what a jerk. Tim O is sweet and sour, not just the sweet he puts out there all the time. Heath Kirchart was cool.

Coldplay was Kurt fillipone's Idea. I wanted "the lights go down" by ELO, but he was pushy and I got what his vision was. I like Kurt. still do. I can live with that on my record.

Earl the Pearl guessed the closest. Borderlands 2 is awesome. I'm not over skating though, Its more of a social thing for me though, and all the skate homies are in vancouver/vic and phoenix.

don't know what happened with any girl/lakai stuff. I probably came off overeager and presumptuous. I could see that, I just loved those guys though. oh well. I should have just gone over to some teams I could have gone on trips with. anyways......

that pretty much covers it. I live in the Richmond hills in the Bay Area. I can hear cows from my house. I start work at 630 most days. Iam a "tree climber". I have an embarrassing link I'll post.

This in contrast with all the other Daewon/Popps things going on...

Interesting.

Always thought you were due more. Still, good to hear you're enjoying skating and happy.

Ogopogo what up! I feel you on the normal life. Psyched to hear from you, and to know you're agile as always. And jussayin', I bet if you threw some time at it you could add a heavy-duty HD part to your impressive list of video achievements and stoke many more people than the mere posters in this thread. ;-)

Slap never ceases to surprise me. Glad to hear you've got your shit together, especially with all these horror stories about the industry coming to light, that being said a part from you would be absolutely awesome. If anything I know that if I ever need a tree cut down I'm gonna call the A Plus Team. I pity the fool who wouldn't.

He was notorious in his day.  Smashing hotel rooms and fucking around with bottles of piss in the tour van.
