So as to not leave your brain starving, I’ve rounded up the standard weekly selection of junk food, starting with the following heads up. There have been a number of times in the past when I’ve brought up an annual outlaw skateboard contest that’s happened every year around the end of November out there in Houston, Texas.
Thanks to a brief internet search, I found that it happened again;
I’ve searched for some video accompaniment, but so far have come up mostly dry.
For those who are perhaps unaware of the EZ-7, it’s been sessioned longer than most of the people who still skate there have been alive;
I know Michael from Cockfight Skateboards dips in here from time to time, and as one of the impresarios, as well as competitors of and in said contest, perhaps he might do us a solid and point us in a correct direction.
I do love ditch skating, though they are far and few between in my travels, and would likely break myself off in EZ-7 as soon as I looked at it.
Speaking of which, and I know I’ve mentioned it previously, but I have a brand spanking new deck for sale, which not only is a banger on curbs, but ain’t too shabby in the ditches neither;
When these dogs are gone, they’re gone for good, and I will begin working on whatever the sixth deck in our meandering collection of wood will be;
If you want one, all you gotta do is click here.
Moving on from that kind of four wheels to the other- It’s come to my attention that The Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles is currently hosting a show called ADV: Overland, and I would like to see it a real lot;
I’ve been past the museum, I know people who’ve gone to the museum, I even know people who’ve seen this show, and yet here I am, freezing my balls off in almost Canada, not being there.
Certainly, if you happen to find yourself in or around Los Angeles, do me a solid and check the show out for me. I’ll trade a sticker pack to anyone who sends me a cool photo dump.
Moving on to other extremely unimportant topics- Did you know that a fellow named Robot and I have been doing a podcast for a few months? It’s true. We have recorded eighteen or twenty, and have ten published.
The first seven or so were pretty awkward, but I think we’re finally starting to find our rhythm.
If you’d care to listen to our latest, it cane be found on iTunes, as well as right here;
I like this one because while it doesn’t necessarily go anywhere more than any of the others, I think Robot and I have finally found one another’s rhythms, and are beginning to synch a bit more. In another couple of episodes, I put myself in a closet, which hopefully will alleviate any weird echos on my end, and from there we really have no where to go but up.
Finally, I’d like to show a sweet action shot of Donkelope Greg aboard his snazzy purple ‘Shredtail’, because so far I don’t think I’ve included any bike junk in today’s post;
Eventually this, along with an article I wrote about him will grace the pages of Mountain Flyer Magazine. If you’d like to know the story of a Wisco born and bred hessian-turned-framebuilder, keep your eyes peeled. It’s sure to be something, or something.
Either way, like most of the content I generate, it’s almost 60% guaranteed to not leave your brain starving.
