I read an article yesterday about Facebook.  Basically it said, when Facebook was new, we all jumped on it because it was this fun and exciting new thing.  But social media wasn’t this new thing.  We were all on MySpace before that, and Friendster before that.  And even before that, a lot of us had our own websites or blogs.

Reading that article got me thinking about my own participation with Facebook and social media.  It reminded myself that I had this blog.  A place I could do exactly as I was doing with Facebook.  Share some photos, connect a little, exchange some ideas, thoughts.  And it was fun!

So here I am, sharing some photos from a trip to Seattle, WA I took back in October.  These were all taken on my iPhone.

Coming soon… A photo Journal from a recent trip to Tacoma, WA!  Woop-woop!

New part from Shogo Zama!

Please watch and become as much of a fan as I have become watching him over the past couple of years,

 

 

A new video offering from Pete Spooner, premiering 12/21/18 in Minneapolis, MN.

Watch the above edit of “unused clips” from Pete and the ‘Skating is Easy’ gang.

Spots from NYC to Minnesota to St, Louis, MO all packaged nicely in this 7 minute long or so edit.  Watching this keeps you wanting a taste of that finished product.  If this is anything like Pete’s previous videos, this will surely hit the taste buds of any ‘off-the-beaten’ path skate-video aficionado.

This has been said before by many people across many skate-related  blogs and within circles of friends, but Minnesota skaters may produce more full length videos than anywhere else in the USA.  Which if true, would be a very impressive feat, given that in Minnesota you usually only have about 5-6 months of the year where you can actually go outside without coming close to freezing to death given the brutal nature of the winters.

In the past couple of weeks, I have been spending most of my free time driving around in South Los Angeles looking for stuff to skate. I have found many things to skate, but also some things I didn’t expect to find. Melted crayons, painted rocks, and beautiful wall art. I feel like things here are endless. I’ll continue to search here.
