And Matt B got a half-hoverboard from Santa! They haven't quite worked out the other half yet. Did anyone eat Gingerbread cookies? Gross. Don't forget the homeless this holiday season, you can still do something nice for them. This heavy metaler did, because he knows he will be homeless one day.
Grant got a 'Nazi-terrorist fun set' from Mattel Toys complete with lead paint and a working M-80!

Billy goes to Sheckler's Party - MEGA POST!!!!

Image Description Here
Ryan gives Billy a peace sign. Now that he is on TV, there are lots of people showing up to his parties. And of course they know his fridge will be well-stocked with all that MTV cash. And anyway, you know a party is huge when there is a band and a 'jumbo-tron.' Or when you see a posted model release when you walk in telling you that you might appear on TV, and if you do, you can't sue.
Image Description Here
Billy hired himself a new 'Life Assistant' his name is Alien from Canada.
Image Description Here
He's into beer like most Canadians. And who the fuck does this guy think he is?
Image Description Here
And what about this guy? Where do these people come from? I never saw this guy at a Dew Tour.
Image Description Here
Billy started wondering if it was such a good idea to come here...
Image Description Here
Active Erica was there with her tight homies.
Image Description Here
Billy is one of her tight homies.
Image Description Here
Alien fell in love with Sheckler's mom...
Image Description Here
And arm-wrestled his dad!
Image Description Here
Don't trip over the camera dude.
Image Description Here
I'm almost 95% sure that this is Colin McKay.
Image Description Here
Things started getting weirder the more drunk people got.
Image Description Here
Then J-Lay showed up...
Image Description Here
Someone (Alien?) disrobed and started spraying the crowd with urine.
Image Description Here
Johnny was loving it.
Image Description Here
Then Billy started taking photos of girls, but zooming in only on their boobies. (He is single now, we can allow it.)
Image Description Here
These ones look like they are sitting on a shelf.
Image Description Here
These ones are texting.
Image Description Here
These ones are married to a pro-skater.
Image Description Here
Then Billy started going for the up-skirt shots, but wasn't too successful.
Image Description Here
These ones were available for a squeeze test?
Image Description Here
Thanks Ryan (and Red-Bull I assume...) for having Billy over! It was epic!
Posted December 22nd, 2007 by It's your party - you can cry if you want to
