One of those Zumiez Couch Tours... (Toy Machine does one in Minneapolis this Thursday!)

I'm just photo-dumping all my photos on here for your veiwing pleasure. For you, it's like being a fly on the wall, or in the van, with the RVCA team...

about this same trip.

Little Italy, NYC. Some Italian place Jimmy loves. Rodent was in the city and hooked up with us.
6947img0189.JPG
Harmony has 2 kids now.
6947img0190.JPG
There is so much love to be spread.
6947img0199.JPG
Leo texts me photos of his dick.
6947img0208.JPG
Me and Stu.
6947img0209.JPG
Better shot of Stu.
6947img0210.JPG
This is getting gratuitous... Oh well.
6947img1357.JPG
Flying over the America.
6947img1359.JPG
Flying into New York city...
6947img1360.JPG
6947img1365.JPG
Driving into the city, the first glimpse of the Empire State...
6947img1368.JPG
We tried to get Julian and David to "Lady and the Tramp" it. They wussed.

6947img1373.JPG
Jimmy was bummed they were out of steak. So went with the veal. Don't have the mom? I'll take the kid.
6947img1374.JPG
It was Stu's first time to NYC, but not Spanky's.
6947img1375.JPG
The old guy area.
6947img1378.JPG
Our hotel in New Jersey was in a pretty nice spot...
6947img1380.JPG
The van was bursting at the seems with RVCA riders.
6947img1381.JPG
Jimmy fantasizes about having a schlong this big, and this high up on his chest too. But mostly so he can lick it himself, and not for any other reasons.
6947img1382.JPG
They had iced towels in the VIP tent for us. How nice.
6947img1387.JPG
And free stuff that aside from liquids and a few snacks, none of us needed.
This was before the demo even started. Here is the footage of the DEMO.

6947img1389.JPG
I took a walk around the Couch Tour event to see what was happening.
6947img1389000.JPG
I think the Skull Candy people were torturing kids for free prizes. Man, the things people will do in this recession for a free sticker.
6947img1391.JPG
There was some element of perversion in this, or is that just me?
6947img1393.JPG

6947img1395.JPG

6947img1396.JPG
Bumming: all that dancing and gunk and you lost.
6947img1397.JPG
You have to wash yourself in a toilet after too.
6947img1398.JPG
Good times.
6947img1400.JPG
The signing, where we signs stuff and some security guard yells at kids who try to get more than 2 things signed. Really? Kids wait in line for two hours and they can't even get more than the poster and something else signed? Most of them don't know who any of us are anyway. You have to be on Fuel TV or the Berrics to be known by a kid these days.

This is frequent commenter on this blog and Loyal Pawn, Mike.

Mike rules.
6947img1406.JPG
Boxers. Reminds me of Deanna when I first met her, but that was back in 1987 or so, and she didn't have a bathing suit on underneath 'em.
6947img1409.JPG
Enthusiastic Mothers.
6947img1410.JPG
This guy.
6947img1411000.JPG
Look what I can do with my face!
6947img1411.JPG
That "make your mouth look like a pussy" thing will be a hit when you get to prison.
6947img1415.JPG
Lurking the streets of NYC after our demo.
6947img1418.JPG
Came across a pack of rabid fans by chance, so we jumped out of the van to see what was happening. Apparently actor Sean Hayes, was interacting with his people, who were singing him Happy Birthday. Jimmy has a better shot, I'm sure you'll see it on the RVCA blog.
6947img1419.JPG
Stu, Jimmy, and Harmony are repping Dave Letterman.
6947img1420.JPG
This kid was tripping on Leo.
6947img1422.JPG
Harmony had a pal in NYC...
6947img1424.JPG
Stu fanned out on 30 Rock center...
6947img1426.JPG
And we hit up the Seinfeld reastaurant...
6947img1430.JPG
The inside was way different.
6947img1432.JPG
Back to the hotel in Queens.

Holy shit, It's mike. I wear glasses too.
Do you spell Zumiez with an S on purpose?
Italian food...dear god. Rigatoni pasta,chicken or Eggplant parmesana are the best.Soups,salads,breads..food boner.
So,all you guys get flown out and in hotels on Zumiez tab? Tha life.
Did Jimmy encourage the Lady and The Tramp thing?
If your penis was that big, you couldn't even fuck. Why live anymore.
Free rations,eh? Dude. One time, there was some chips at school leftover from a party. They were in another room and we could get like a handful or whatever. And I looked out to see if anyone was coming and the dude stole the bag of chips. Put them in his jacket and shit. Then I said to him "Dude, we stole these chips,and we're the only Mexicans in this class. We're enforcing our stereotype" but then he traded the half bag of Doritos later for a whole new bag of popcorn. Dude,You guys didn't have a bag to stuff hella snacks into it for later?

Nice close up on that girls face. That was only slightly erotic. Porto-sink looks gross as fuck.

Damn,ed,getting Pedo on that Girl's shorts.

Nice joke about that guy's face pussy. Grow his hair out and pretend to be a girl,either way you get stabbed. By dicks or by shanks. Enjoy it or hate it.

I'm with Coco.

Sittin' here in queens,eating refried beans We're in all the magazines gulping down thorazines

Leo in the bed,hmmm...I've only texted photos of my dick to one person.

Dude, you guys should went to a Letterman show.

Mary, Jesus, & Joseph...
This post is kickass.
So, kickass, this is all I'm going to say.

& this..
It seems like you got every funny, disturbing, good, radical, spontaneous, penis, beautiful, horrendous, stupid, moment on this trip.

You're going to send us socks?
Just a stone's throw away, Ed...
Posted By: Jacob on June 29th, 2010 at 05:47PM PST
Someone get the the proper addresses...
Posted By: ed on June 29th, 2010 at 05:56PM PST
First, money grinders, you have to post more than you're youtube page, only devin briggs can post one thing.

You could only get two things signed, I remember I went to my skate park to skate one day day and BAM ended up doing a signing and he looked at me and just said a "Toy Machine board hmm", Flashbacks maybe. But anyway He was signed like 10 things each.

EGGPLANT

This post is hilarious haha. Im so honored to be on here. Thanks so much.

Zumiez couch tour was sick.

I took a shit in that JC Pennys hahah. That hugging and jumping thing was definitely perverse. Wish i went over there to talk to you, instead i was probably grabbing water i brought with me and sitting in my trunk for a minute. I didn't see pussy face guy but what you said about him is hilarious haha.

Demo footage:

Thanks again Ed.

Great post Ed makes me feel like I was there.
So close to the action I had to clean the syrups and cereal from my hair (was that what all that crap was?).

Congratulations,Eggs!

I just wish the baby would have been named after me instead of Jacob. Jk.
Send Eggs some Toy Socks for the Juniors.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on June 29th, 2010 at 09:26PM PST
Oh,and write all our names on the package,so it looks like we all pitched in on something for Eggs' baby.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on June 29th, 2010 at 09:27PM PST
I wasn't going to go this year to Couch tour just cuz every time I go I see more than enough things that piss me off... But I got dragged with some friends and saw some Krew members skate. Last year with the Toy team was the best. Can't top that.

(You are completely right about the berrics and fuel tv).

i just watched some of the toy demo online. Sick as hell haha
Posted By: Mike on July 1st, 2010 at 01:22PM PST
despite the 90 degree weather and a sun burnt forehead my whole month is made simply by shaking Ed's hand. It was surreal after all these years to see him in person. I think I might have weirded him out though. Sorry Ed. You're my hero still though.
Posted By: DanHengel on July 1st, 2010 at 05:43PM PST
Thanks all.
No sleep here.
Send Toy Machine onsies.
Posted By: Eggs McManus on July 1st, 2010 at 06:32PM PST
The Seinfeld restaurant is a must-stop in NYC. I was there a couple months ago. The inside is different because what you see on the episodes is a set that was constructed in a studio. There was some type of issue where the creators didn't want to pay Tom's Restaurant any royalties so they always just show the side that says "Restaurant"
Posted By: Brian on July 2nd, 2010 at 08:41PM PST
dude congrats Eggs

how do i get on sock team?
