Best of 2012.

Life Coach BB will always be an inspiration.

Back Tail King.

Those switch flip back tails on the Stoner stage were insane. It's tough to 50 that thing.

Pretty Sweet the flat ground king finally won BATB. PJs Brick Harbor NY clip was rad too.

Even with the maternity neck sleepy style, BNs part makes me want to skate a quarter pipe super bad.

This clip & the Diamond Halloween clip was so sick. Gotta get in there & skate that shit some time.

Big thanks to 2Chainz for helping me get amped for work every morning. Please put out a video for "CRACK" in 2013.

Daveed G's part was insane but I thought this guy would win SOTY aside from Guy. This part always feels like a Travel Channel show.

H Street.

I watched the BMX finals on tv and thought that the course was sick. But it wasn't until I saw the follow line in this clip did I realize how insane it was. Push downhill? No problem. Go Shecks.

Thrashin' Thursday.

Web clips are a dime a dozen these days, but some gold has come out in the past few days. Gotta figure out how to keepvid these clips and smash them together.

Finally got to skate the Supreme Bowl. Too bad I had AM95s on and had to use Jav's board, but shit it's perfect with the new layer and coping. Thanks Tino.

Gotta go back with my own set-up and really try and get it in.

Throwback Thursday.

The Bones Brigade videos were awesome, but I always loved this Schmitt video. Just seemed like they were having a good time. When the video came out, our only access was this crazy BMX ramp on the other side of town. Super tall, super skinny and PVC coping. At most we learned kickturns and mid tranny fakie ollies. But one day our dumb friend decided he wanted to learn early grab fs 360s. He over rotated, knocked himself out, and we lost our skate privileges. Thanks Frank.

Finally found this park after getting hyped on this clip from a few years back. Nice ollie hips and a sweet bank to curb. Too fun.

"Cut Chemist returns with a live mix at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for Cinespia's screening of E.T. The Extra Terrestrial in 2011. Ive chosen to share it now to celebrate 30 years since its release. Psychadelic space and 80s classics mix (Edit..ehem) because who needs to hear two whole verses of Kim Wilde nowadays?!?

Way Back Wednesday.

Found a new random GINO clip online. Always good to see this stuff from "back in the day".

Always tripped me out he skated in those high top Reeboks. They always had those in the RBK store at work and were only about $15 after my hook-up. But still I couldn't bring myself to buy them as they were designed for aerobicise: super soft leather with terry cloth interior. So comfy but craze as skate shoes. The mid profile is tight and the sole looks like the herringbone would prob grip pretty well; but I still didn't think I could pull off the Jane Fonda Mids. Only GINO.

The new Challenge Court Pros are promising. Would be a nice change from skating in Half Cabs. May look like ortho shoes chilling but the mid profile would be perfect for skating. You can just destroy them without having to try and keep them clean. White mid-sole maintenance is a bitch.

But we'll see- the sole looks a little suspect with just dots for grip and the wafer thin tongue may need stuffing; but whatevs. Any new shoe is a good shoe. And with life retirement around the corner, they will match my cane and cataract glasses fine.

Good to see BGP footy from homey Dan V. Miss you holmes!

Quim is def out of his mind, but still backin' him. He's always been cool from back in the day running into him at random Jersey/ City spots to sessioning every park from Hackettstown to Newburgh. Quim's always down to skate and have a good time. Just ease up on that weed yo.

Greener Grass.

Leave it to a Bostonian and a Floridian to make me miss home. I always used to clown tourists because of how the movies portray New York- how exciting it looks, how much "energy" there is, the romance of New York City. Then you get there and it's not pretty as it looked from your living room watching "When Harry Met Sally". From the sour scent of garbage juice to the constant barrage of noise it makes you go nuts. As a resident since 96, I would always yearn for some peace and quiet, a more normal life.

It was always such a struggle to make ends meet just to live there. Out of the house at 4:30am, back at 10:30pm. With any break in the schedule, I would rush home to get a moment of peace in my non-peaceful apartment. From the constant attack of construction audio, to the chanting of the Indians who held daily prayer meetings, to the kids out back smoking weed talking about trying to blaze some girl from biology class; it never seemed like I could get my head on straight. Skate Midtown after a 15 hour work day? Fuck that. I just want to get home to my wife, eat a home-cooked meal, and watch Law & Order SVU like the rest of the world. But now I can't help missing home. As it will be more fun to visit as a visitor, but it will kill me to be a tourist in my own home city.

Be careful of what you wish for, I guess. I've always wanted to live in California. So here we are. Not in a beachside house as I dreamed but in an apartment in Los Angeles in yet another city. Don't get me wrong though my quality of life is amazing, our apartment is a palace compared to the various shitholes I've taken residence in, and I finally have peace of mind. But it will be a long time until I will be able to call myself a Los Angelino.
