Weird Video slide show to watch by Dame Pipi

This crazy lady called Dame Pipi just lurked into the show and started shooting pictures of everyone and then handing out her website address. So I checked it out, and found this weird slide show with commentary in English. CLICK HERE to see it. Watch out for a bit of boobie flashing at the end...

This is a photo of the back of Dame Pipi's head... She's a girl.

This is Anna who works at Colette, and I put her photo up here because I know how much Sarah hates having her photo taken. But I wanted to put a photo of Sarah up here and tell you all that she is the sweetest person on earth, and thank her for giving me a show at her beautiful gallery and making my stay in Paris absolutely perfect...

Benjamin, what did you think of the show?

The Beautiful Losers show in Lille, France...

Image Description
Whoever hung it messed up pretty bad! Things that go high were low, things that go low were up high... Things were missing. I went in there totally anonomously, paid for a ticket and everything, like an inside spy...

They used the same color wall as in Milan, and this photo is blurry, so you can't really tell, but belive me...

The Morroccan girls laughed at us for falling

Image Description
While we skated in thier barrio.

I walked around Paris today, ducking into as many cathedrals as possible. I love shooting photos in them. We looked at my 2nd favorite bookstore in Paris, Le Chambre Claire. Bought nothing. A splendid day. Ate dinner at "the supreme victory of the sacred heart" a very weird restaurant with poetry books laying around. They are very bad. But the food is good. Walked around Rue Saint-Honore, looking in the windows of the fancy shops, then retired for the evening. (Ate some snacks we bought earlier...)

I thought I would write something, so there you go. Useless Blog info.

#1. Scope my Vision "Psycho Stick" board that I got for Christmas, with mis-matched colored G&S "bam-bam" wheels, and Thunder trucks. I have been riding them my whole life.
#2. Acid dropping the ledge at HB highschool. I am pretty sure that I had a Vision Grigley shirt wrapped around my waist.
#3. Clacking an ollie down the 7 stair.

In the depths of Canberra...

Image Description
In the Australian Capital Territory, (like our Washington DC) they LET you skate all the spots. We were skating the equivalent of their Supreme Court building and cops just drove by looking at us. We took a boat out, and were able to drive right up the Prime Minister's house. We could have actually gotten off and walked on his property!!! That would be like just taking a stroll at the White House... Except of course you would be shot and in jail in less than 10 seconds in the USA...
