News From January 2006

Look Into the Eyes of Your Life Owner

Image Description
Josh Harmony took this pic in Lyon while on a skate mission with Mr. Mortagne. Just out of frame is a swarm of a million rollerbladers, and I'm not talking about the boot grabbing, railing dancing variety, but a lamer Euro strain, that takes to couple-skating, cone weaving, and cigarette smoking.

Oh yeah, new video, "Suffer the Joy" coming soon. Hold your breath...

Toy Team signing at the Trade Show!!!

The ENTIRE Toy Machine team will be attending the Trade Show in San Diego, California to watch the world premiere of the preview trailer of our new video, "SUFFER the JOY"

Be there at 4:30 on Saturday January 21st!!!!

Rush security and get beat up by Samoans!

See tons of hangers-on lurking and 'networking' and trying to shmooze their way to the top of the skate world, see grown men with plastic bags filled with free stickers, see leering crowds of people drooling over swimsuit models, see skimpily dressed women let men place stickers on their asses, see sad people posting up in their booths of stupid products that not one person will EVER stop to even look at, shake over 2000 people's hands - picking up as many diseases as possible, attend one of the after parties and get filled with liquor, become shit-faced, and then drunk drive home!!!!!!

All of this awaits you at the wonderful Trade Show!!!
