    Haven't watched it but I love Toy Machine. I love their graphics and artstyle not to mention the team has basically stayed the same for the past 10 years.

    Just dropped a hundred bucks on another vintage set up. Been looking for one of these for a long time. In good shape this deck, trucks, and wheels fetches closer to $350. The bottom, trucks, wheels, and hardware is pretty good. The top looks rough though, literally. Looks like they slathered shellac on it right over the strips of grip tape then peeled the grip tape off at a later point. You can see the dried drips from the shellac wrapping around the edges of the bottom. I've seen these Road Rider 4 wheels go over and over for $100 alone.

    Bottom looks sweet though, and will display nicely. I'll try to carefully clean up the top with some goo gone, acetone, light sanding, etc then add new grip tape to cover as needed.

    I just realized what my new approach to learning spacewalks should be. I have skids on my board so I'm thinking about starting in tail position and getting the rotations down then slowly working my foot to the sweet spot as I get my coordination together.

    This is too good to be true:

    If this article is true than the Trump Campaign is one of the greatest put ons in history.

    I'm trying to be more Zen. What is the sound of me not giving a fuck?

    It's satire. Lundy's like the Andy Borowitz of Charlotte. Lots of people have suggested that angle saying things like Austin Kutcher will pop out yelling "PUNKED!" at some point before November.

    I've read a conspiracy theory (usually I read them/watch the videos to make fun of them) that said that Trump was planted by the Democratic party so that they would win another election.

    Hey guys, wrote a song today. I'd appreciate some feedback. (I know the vocals need a lot of polish but I think I got the general idea of what I want).

    I like the lyrics, how they don't finish with each line, at the same time of the chord progression (if that makes sense). I may sound better if the playing was more sporadic, like it didn't have the same beat and pattern to it. So like the guitar would be more of an accent to the vocals, rather than the driving force.

    Just a thought! I like your voice, has a unique sound to it.

    Update on Rev J vs. Spacewalks. I loosened my trucks about a quarter turn the other day. That really changed the dynamic between me and the board. I also remembered something I learned during 4 weeks of Karate classes in eighth grade about throwing a punch. In Karate they tell you when you throw a punch pivot from your hips to get the strength for it. I can get about three repetitions before I end up putting too much weight on my heel during my backstroke in my native stance switch not even that yet. I'm also trying to work little glide pauses into it to make it look a little less jerky.

    Ehh don't worry! I still am too. Been at a dead end job for 4 years!

    Just about every last one of my friends is establishing themselves in their "fields" whether that's skating, art or career! I've just been doing the same task everyday for over 4 years!

    I've decided I'm going back to school. I was going to start in the fall but due to a timesheet SNAFU I'm probably not even going to be able to start until spring.

    Why not take something part time, one class, online, even from a different school, even if it might not transfer? You can still make a move to get your feet wet in some kind of educational effort rather than just throwing your hands up in the air because it didn't work out exactly as you would have preferred. I say this because I know hundreds of people post high school that made solid efforts to get more education, but allowed some trivial or major but temporary obstacle to derail their efforts. You can still keep the goal and objectives that got pushed back, But, when pushing back the whole timeline, just add something that can be done sooner rather than later so you stay on task..
