Brainwash Tour 2010: PART 18

The Cowtown signing by Phoenix local Bianca...

But before we start we want to yell in a grindcore voice: LEO is SOTY!!!!
7373toymachine2.jpg
And this photo from the demo.

"Go up there and flip your board multiple times and various ways, then land in some sort of pose while scarping along the edge, and ride away... It's simple." –MoP
7373toymachine52.jpg
I wonder what the best selling boards are here in Phoenix?
7373toymachine6.jpg
I want to be a Cowboy
I got to be a Cowboy
I'm born to be a Cowboy
I want to be a Cowboy
A Cowboy! Uh-huh

Tonight we're taking my fast car
Were gonna go down to the Cowboy bar
I'm gonna wait till the club is full
and I'm gonna ride the mechanical bull

Cowboy look is the one I sought
Can't change now cause the clothes are bought
To be a true Cowboy was my fate
I can't help it if I was born late

All the Cowgirls in their Stetson hats
and their tight fitting jeans so they don't look fat
We'll all be listening to the Cowboy tunes
and stomp around like a bunch of goons

We're all OD'd on the Olden West
seein' who's Cowboy clothes look the best
I can ride that phony bull so damn good
Sometimes I think I'm Clint Eastwood

I know I'm a Cowboy deep inside
My hat band's made out of synthetic rattle snake hide
After a couple shit kickin' Cowboy movies
I'll check out the Cowboy scene down at Zubie's

Find out who all fights the best
We start fights with them punks at the Cuckoo's Nest
Those damn punks are crazy (though)
and meaner than a bull at a rodeo

You call me an Urban clone of course
A big deal if I'm afraid to ride a horse
With a broken nose and a fucked up knee
Maybe this Cowboy scene just ain't for me

Cowboy look is the one I sought
Can't change now cause the clothes are bought
To be a true cowboy was my fate
I can't help it if I was born late

Yee Haw

Then some drunken bird wanted to dance with the Phelper, who already barfed at the bar.
7381img5617.JPG
First it was forceful...
7381img5618.JPG

7381img5621.JPG
Then it was graceful.
7381img5623.JPG
Twirling and all.
7381img5619.JPG
It inspired Leo to get dancing with Katie.
7381img5622.JPG
While some dufus did karaoke in the back.

Josh with a mixture of Mick Jagger and Joaquin Phoenix did an Elvis song...

Girl's text: Hey Belinda, I'm in Las Cruces and there are some skaters showing up. They're pretty cute, I would totally french a few of them. I'm gonna hang out and see if one of them is brave enough to talk to me.

7369img3135.JPG
Some kid tagged our van, we saw him do it and we watched him run away. But I want him to know that it was via our superior benevolence that we did not chase him down and serve him the lumps he deserved. A true homie of the Machine does not desecrate the mother-ship.

Daniel Lutheran's house, Albuquerque. And yes, he has pretty much the coolest parents alive.
7342img2368.JPG
In Dan-Lu's backyard, among may other fun things, is a mini-ramp. Harmony goes pivot to fakie.
7342img2371.JPG
Matt B kicks it in the "man-cave" a detached house for hanging out and getting rad in.
7342img2375.JPG
Daniel and his dad jam guitars...

More fire, this is night 2 at Dan-Lu's house. It was so fun we had to go back. Nick T joins the tour. It was freezing out, but Nick was shirtless?
7342img5307.JPG
The pong was real fun to watch. JT and Billy as a team were pretty much unbeatable. I played my first ever game (and probably last) with J-Lay as my designated drinker, since I don't drink.

Brainwash Tour 2010: PART 2

Traveling the road that is increasingly unforgiving, yet always beautiful.
7326img5082.JPG
Vegas + Billy + Money = Money-Gone, but not always.
7326img5084.JPG
This was in some random gas station. Unlikely bedfellows.
7326img5085.JPG

7326img5086.JPG
The Las Vegas skyline away from the strip...
7326img5090.JPG
Back at Pharmacy...

7326img5107.JPG
Happy.
7326img5108.JPG
These kids are lucky to come into contact with greatness.
7326img5121.JPG
Daniel tried on J-Lay's jersey.

Kevin is backing Batman the pinball game.
7326img5143.JPG
These things take time.
7326img5144.JPG
This kid had no idea who we were or why we wanted his photo.
7326img5146.JPG
Billy wanted to set his board apart from everyone elses. Look for this shape in the upcoming Toy Machine Bloodsucking Goliath super-sized Corporation product catalog.
7326img5152.JPG
And at the same time Johnny was trying to get Jordans trucks off his board the hard way. Nobody had an allen key.
7326img5154.JPG
He got them off by hucking them full force at the wall.
7326img5157.JPG

Testing it out.

Dan Lutheran in the drivers seat of his future.
7326img5179.JPG
Waiting for stuff to happen is a considerable part of any skate trip...
7326img5180.JPG
I don't know the name of the video game, but it involves killing pigs. Diego and Josh are hooked.
7326img5182.JPG

7326img5183.JPG
Tess on the line...
7326img5184.JPG
What a good looking posse.
7326img5188.JPG
My new shape, yeah, I'm serious.

This is the take-home product, a Brainwash poster signed by the whole team except Nick T who is on some Converse trip but coming soon and Collin P who is on a Volcom trip and coming soon.
7323img1264.JPG
Discussing religion, always a hot topic.
7323img1267.JPG
Here we go...
7323img1272.JPG
I wonder what JT thinks about religion?
7323img1274.JPG

7323img5065.JPG
The Butcher, droppin' cleavers this trip.
7323img5068.JPG
Hi-Fives into the Las Vegas night. Over 500 bucks lost by one guy.
7323img5070.JPG

7323img5072.JPG
People hire assholes to be assholes, go figure.

Brainwash Tour 2010: PART 1

Images collected so far minus anything that gives away the actual rippage, that you will have to wait for Thrasher Magazine to see. But rest assured, rippage has gone down.

7322img1123.JPG
