    Which year was that?

    Whoa. He's only a year older than I am. Live every day like it could be your last. Seems the twenties and fifties are pretty devastating years for us humans.

    Losing Jake Phelps is fucking insane. What's going to go on with Thrasher now?

    I bet they've sold more Thrasher merch in the past year than in the past 10 years.

    Well, I picked up the Mar/Apr 2019 issue of Transworld today...the last issue. Not sure if I'll take it out of the cellophane to read it and enjoy it, or just leave it for 10 years and sell it on Ebay.

    Buy another copy to read. Keep one in the wrapper. That's a trick I learned from Comic Book collectors.

    Paris Street Trucks, in 149mm to fit an 8.5" deck. They appear really clean and solid. I haven't had a chance to ride them yet, but I'm very optimistic.

    Cool! Let us know how you like 'em. Just curious why you passed up other OG street trucks?

    I felt like the skateboard world had evolved around me. I was aggressively stuck in a mindset where my gear was just "good enough," and because of that, I literally never tried any sort of new gear. Half of the fun of skateboarding is experimenting and finding new gear, and I was prohibiting myself from doing that by putting this mental block in place.
