A long time ago.

Hazze Lindgren, a pro skater (in the freestyle genre) for Schmitt Stix back in the day shot this photo of me and Jeremy Ramey in Jeremy's room. Jeremy was strictly freestyle. I used to freestyle when I wasn't street skating...
I see freestyle CASL contest trophies, a series of freestyle photos ripped from magazines on his wall along with Vision paraphernalia. A Thrasher cover with a freestyler on it? On the right, next to the G&S banner is a photo of Don Brown, now vice president over at Sole-Tech. As for me, I have a complete Vision Skateboards outfit on, A Vision "Blur" shirt, (Vision Blurs were wheels) and Vision shorts. (that were probably fluorescent orange.) And of course the obligatory skater bangs from that era, 1987, 88. I don't even remember ever being in Jeremy's room.

Great 'do.
You should dust off the shorts.
Hope you had a merry xmas.
Did you see the Wayne White book? It was put together really well with a decent interview by Todd Oldham.
I got a great Tim Burton art collection book for xmas as well as a copy of Beautiful Losers. I didn't get to it in the theater so I'm looking forward to making my wife watch it with me.

I was in Canada for the last week.
Never touched the net and it was good.
But I did go back to see Deanna making cookies.
I now firmly believe (no pun) that my Mama T should start fishnet baking as a holiday tradition. Thank you for the inspiration. And thanks to Deanna for being Deanna.

I bet my room will look retarded in ten yearsmaybe not since it's not filled with dyrdek ond Jereme Rogers crap. I have my toy machine things that will be tight to look back and remember. Fuck. I wonder if I'll ever stop skating due to having a career as a priority. Toy has played a role in my formative teenage years. As I grow up I hope don't
lame out.

I saw a Jeremy Ramey Circle A ad last night and almost scanned it in for Vert Is Dead. Almost.

Smoooooth legs Ed, Did you just shave that morning?

Blind is the opposite of Vision, that is a 100% true fact about Gonz's naming of the company.

Ed, did you learn impossibles on a freestyle board or a, normal at the time, 10" deck? I learned kickflips on Chris Miller's first Schmitt board w/ Bullet 66's and I've been suffering ever since. -Jason

Have Deanna post some shit on your blog while you're busy...

I know this has been up for awhile but damn Ed that pic is sweet. Who took it? I dont even remember that room.
