London, England, 2010, part 2

My second time in a few months...

Saw this at a Christian bookstore about how to deal with Richard Dawkins.

I'm sure Deanna finds it silly...

Her minions best behave.

There is nothing like this in Huntington Beach, or even in LA.

Some protesters had snuck past the gaurds and onto the roof. The cops let them have thier fun for fear they will jump. They just wait them out before arresting them. I'm proud of these guys.

Who is that? Rick McCrank and his fiance Lee... (Leigh? Leah?)

So how did I come across Rick McCrank? I'm walking through Leicester Square randomly and see a pack of kids with skateboards. I think to myself, "that is odd in this part of London." I think that perhaps there is another skate video premiering at one of the local theaters. So I follow the kids over to the theater and it turns out there is a skate premiere, because there were tons of skaters there, but no sign saying what movie it was. Just as I was feeling awkward about possibly being seen lurking around some skate premiere with no intention of going in to see it I get attacked by an excited Rick McCrank, who is here to premiere in the UK his new film MachoTailDrop! We were literally on our way to dinner and suddenly Rick hands us two tickets and in we go to watch the film. (which rules, every skater should see it.)

And after the film Rick and John Rattray, who is also in the film, had to get up and do a question and answer session before a tough English crowd. "Did anyone bang the hot chick in the film?" –English crowd

What a strange day walking around London and a strange circumstance that brought us around the theater at the exact time the film was starting. Chance is a tricky one, we wouldn't be here without it.

Afterward I had an awkward talk with John. We are always awkward together and I don't know why.

I wonder what Deanna would look like as the Queen.

Just then the elevator doors opened creating another awkward moment.

If john is reading this it's about to get a lot more awkward.

I was watching some Christian show on the Christian channel(no shit) and they wanted to Challenge I think Richard Dawkins to I guess a debate with intentions on handing his ass to him,jesus style. I guess they'd offer a million dollars. But what's dumb about arguing religion is that you can always make things up since there is no way you can prove or disprove what they say about God and crap...It's all made up anyway.

It's a small world. I want to see that movie. Netflix? So you were just walking around and only Rick noticed it was you? You need to get some more face time at The Berrics, MTV, and Transworld.

I wonder what it's like saying "I bonedthe Queen of England" and it was true. I wonder if there is a procedure for doing the Queen. Like do you have to fondle her and only please her and if you want to be blown you have to submit a request the night before.Who knows. Someone go find out for me.
The queen is dead,boys.

does machotaildrop have a release date yet? it feels like it's been forever since i watched the trailer for it.

The Queen does have some rules and regulations for a fortnight's conquest but they are simple ones. Four of them to be precise. One for each of her buttock dimples:

1. Always, always bring oatmeal raisin cookies.
2. Condom. Preferably ribbed for her pleasure. And flavored. Licorice.
3. You must say "Yes, your majesty." with each thrust.
4. Thank her profusely, mop up after yourself, and then bark like a little dog. She just adores little dogs.

Machotaildrop looks awesome.

That Griffin thing is pretty cool, but it looks like the head of a dragon or dog or something haha.

Eggs, that's pretty funny. I think I like rule number one the best hahaha

Strange happenings. You seem to always find someone in London

Soops random. Good times though.
Christian girls make the best fucks.

I work with a Vietnamese guy who loves war. He also loves guns, booze, & blondes.

I want to skate with someone.

Pea, tear... Griffin.

Captcha: That Acuter
I read it as "that acooter".

Shit you not, Dawkins was being interviewed by channel 4 at the skatepark in Oxford yesterday. No skating though, he must be a street slag.

Plus- You don't fuck the queen. The queen fucks you.

Whenever Reda is around English people he makes a ton of jokes that aren't funny.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on June 16th, 2010 at 01:57PM PST
Reda who?
