It's Tuff Being Famous: Toy in Chile Update

Image Description Here
Johnny was big-time in Santiago. He was signing stuff and even made a TV appearance.
Image Description Here
The local news channel covered the event.
Image Description Here
Diego was interviewed as well, telling the Chilean people to buy Toy Machine or get butchered.
Image Description Here
The Butcher's knee is looking gnarly.
Image Description Here
The crowd was massive and started chanting 'do hammers!' at us. Apparently, they were more happy just watching their local heroes skate. We didn't even need to come! Kevin put it this way: 'With only three riders and in the midst of a local contest, the dudes did what they could among an expansive and jeering crowd. Diego was on the news and Johnny signed for days before injuries jinxed us.' Our driver likes to watch TV while on the road. Hopefully he runs over one of these street performers. After some hiccups with rider arrivals we're off to Valparaiso today.
There are many more photos to see from the trip on BURNOUT!!!

Diego sends an update from Chile!

Image Description Here
He didn't send any text, just photos, so I'm gonna have to take a guess as to how things are going:
Johnny was walking by a group of hot young models doing a photoshoot in the street when one of them recognized him and freaked out. She ran from her shoot over to Johnny and started hugging him and kissing him. Since she was dressed for some 'sexy schoolgirl' shoot, her skirt was hella short, and johnny was getting a boner. Then she handed a camera to Nick and asked him to shoot a picture of them together. Johnny was pretty embarrassed about the boner and was hunching over to minimize it. Nick said 'Stand up straight dude!' and everyone was looking now. He stood up and all the people around started to laugh like crazy because you could clearly see J-Lay's raw boner through his pants. Nick is telling that story to Kevin in this photo. ---------------------Billy is here, but flies in tomorrow.
Image Description Here
Diego shoots johnny while reflecting about the days activities. Then they went to get coffee, and fuck, for all I know they are in LA chillin. How do I know they are in Santiago, Chile if they go to Starbucks?
Posted April 12th, 2008 by I'm pretty sure he got her number though

Photo Essay: Billy Marks Gets Interviewed

Image Description Here
Erica was trying to interview Bill for the Fuel TV, so I barged in to make it terrible for him.
Image Description Here
Billy started out with eye contact...
Image Description Here
But then he shut it down and went 'shades on the inside guy' on us.
Image Description Here
Then I cut in and started talking about dildoes, my favorite subject.
Image Description Here
Billy's girlfriend was busy taking care of the dog, McLovin. On the scene of skateboard commerce, the marketplace of looking like one person and doing another. I'm not a real skater, I just play one on TH3...

Scenes and Faces from Rancho Active on Friday

Image Description Here
It started with masses of Loyal Pawns choosing Toy Machine decks from the Lifetime Supply that Active has in stock. We sat and signed things for hours.
Image Description Here
Matt B was there, looking fine as usual, and hanging out with his family who came to see him in action.
Image Description Here
Austin was there too, hanging in the shadows as he is want to do from time to time.
Image Description Here
Nick showed up with a popsicle.
Image Description Here
Josh and Ed posing for a picture. Compare the young to the old, the fresh to the grisled.
Image Description Here
J-Lay rocks his best Blue-Greco.
Image Description Here
Grif and Grant get a grip.
Image Description Here
After signing was over we all went out to the parking lot to watch LURK-FEST projected onto a big screen with the sound full blast. It was pretty cool to see it outside.
Even this kid from the Emerica Website was there getting rad.

A photo tribute to Active Erica...

Image Description Here
It came to my attention that many Toy Machine website Lurkers were posting comments about Active Erica. For Example: 'We wanne see her naked' or 'We think she is hot' so I went out of my way to bring you little horn-dogs what you want. You wanna see that one Closer?
Image Description Here
My first thought was to try to get a secret behind the scenes photo shoot going...
Image Description Here
But then I realized that would probably be inappropriate, so I resigned to getting these photos.

Getting Erica on the Table wasn't easy. I had to demonstrate exactly what I wanted (for you, my Loyal Pawns.)

Tribute to our LOYAL PAWNS...

Image Description Here
Our signing and premier at Active in Rancho Cucamonga brought out a plethora of Loyal Pawns.
Image Description Here
I want to thank all these Toy Pawns for coming out to show their support of the Bloodsucking Skateboard Company.
Image Description Here
Kids from far and wide made the pilgrimage to see their overlords, (us) and to seek advice on how to conduct their lives.
Image Description Here
As you can see, I told them that buying a Toy Machine board is a step in the right direction. This one was Packin' Red-Bull after too many Life of Ryan episodes...
(or was he trying to inflate his package area to impress Active Erica?)
Image Description Here
All Pawns were very happy to be seeing the Lurk-Fest video and to shake hands with their favorite Toy Machine representative, including the creator of the videos, Kevin Barnett.
Image Description Here
Johnny Layton was there in a surprise appearance, (we thought he was gonna be in Brazil!) making the entire team present except for Diego the Butcher, who we think is in Spain.
Image Description Here
Overall, the signing went great, even the flow-rider minions got in on the action.
I have plenty more photos to post tomorrow. Thanks Active! Thanks Erica!, and Thanks Loyal Toy Fans!
