I rock the 'stache at all times.
Before you say the music sucked, have you considered shutting the fuck up?

I canít rock a mustache without looking like a pedophile.

I think thatís 50% of mustache dudes, not just you

I probably looked less like a pedophile and more like a European pervert when i had just my mustache
I had the beard grown in kinda thick a few years ago at Halloween and wanted to test a mustache as ďpart of a costumeĒ so I didnít get too much shit if it looked bad.
My wife and her bff couldnít stop laughing whenever they looked at me and called me Lt. Dangle and pornstar all night. Beard came back asap.

I just tried v-flips for the first time since the mid 90s and on the 3rd try I caught one that felt better than any other trick I still have. I don't know how to feel right now.
What's the word?
Tell me brother, have you heard

It's a trick that feels good but looks bad. Nothing wrong with that.

They're like the sweatpants of skateboarding tricks.

I have absolutely no idea how to 3flip, but I got vflips like a motherfucker. get that front foot exactly midway, almost too far back, between front and back trucks, heel angled toward tail, and ninja flick that shit. idk how the hell it works but they pop pretty big for me like that :o

I'm definitely going to keep them around because idk how much longer I will have my 360 flips. At 44 they are a lot more effort than they used to be. They don't feel the same and I miss a lot of them. It's kinda depressing, like admitting I'm getting old haha. Maybe Vflips will fill that void.

yaaaa, you skate 7.75s or something like that  ;) i'v seen your 3flips on tape and they look pretty good, especially stationary in a room. I really started skating again thinking I wanted to learn 360 flips, but when I started to size down from 8.5 for learning, I really decided I'd rather stick with weird ass vflips. on the bright side, dolphin flips are a similar flick to vflips :o

Thanks man, Oddly enough I can't do them on my 7.5-7.75 I can do them on big setups, but I lose almost everything else. Speaking of indoor stationary skating it's almost that time here again, I moved my ramps/boxes into the shed yesterday  :( Insanity here we come

I have a younger trans sibling who I've grown a little distant from over the past few years, now that they live over 100 miles away. She recently got a FB account for the first time and she just posted that she is being hospitalized for the 4th time for suicidal thoughts.

A middle finger to anyone out there that trivializes the experiences of trans people and other marginalized peoples.

I'll be 49 next week.  Kickflips are getting rarer and rarer for me.  so much so, that I've started logging them in my phone.  I did one a couple of weeks ago at my Sunday morning curb sesh.  The last one before that was exactly 9 months prior.  I figure I never know when I've done my last one, so might as well take notes.

That's awesome that you refuse to let go of them! I was back home a few months ago and I was talking to the shop owner of my old local (15-25 years ago) I told him I was downsizing my setups to keep my fliptricks around. He laughed and said "I'm impressed you still do them. Guys our age usually give them up by now." I don't know how accurate that is, but it sure put a smile on my face on the ride home.

That is absolutely gut wrenching. Iím sincerely hoping that they pull through. I know it may sound trite, but if there is anything we can do to help the situation please donít be stranger.

Also echoing that statement, a giant fuck you to anyone that that minimizes the experiences of all marginalized groups.

Wishing you and your sibling nothing but the best.
