I saw the first photo, and I thought "Hey,that looks like Boulala or something."
My hunch was correct.
I guess he's out of Jail now. He said "Beer tastes like shit" or something. I guess you have to grow to like it.

It takes a lot for someone to admit when they're wrong. AETM blasted off into outer cyber-space.

Is there any footage of Lance Mountain Jr. skating? Does he skate? I wonder what it's like having a Legendary skateboarder/artist for a father. Or even to have a father that participates in your life. Whateva,brah. keep kroosing thru lyfe.

I'm sure Ed is an inspiration to us all. I love the work you do, and how you do it.
So please keep posting and inspiring us

Hey JGonz, Grant Hatfield will be in the Eureka area working with his father for the next two weeks.
Grant said he might go skate the park, perhaps you can meet up with him and shred...

Around when is he going to be in Eureka?
Arcata/Eureka are the only parks..
I'll lurk the park then.And totally update my twitter so he can find me.
Does he even know I exist? or are you like "Hey,there's this internet kid that lives there"

I doubt I can "Shred" on any level close to what he does. But I would like to see him shred. Witness the Fitness.

how old is ali right there? like 22 huh.
he looks identical to the creepy cover dude from the cramps "bad music for bad people" album
so sick!

the only skate memory i have of lance jr. is that long ass boardslide fakie in the "dying to live" montage, and brad staba from that transworld vid.

shred= having your own personal fun when skating.
fuck it, jgonz. just skate brah!! do it for me :)

He does have his hair like the dude on that Cramps album.

I'll hippie jump everything with a smile, then alleviate stress by not hating and masturbating. All for ma boi Fresco de Mex.

I've never had a stranger approach me and ask "Hey, you that Jgonz?"
One day..

I think Ed should adopt JGonz. Come on Ed, the thing you're missing is a baby boy hahah. I'm kidding, but seriously, that would be awesome. I feel like I've already said that, or it's been said. I don't remember. The pictures of Ali Boulala are creepy to me. It feels like when you see photos of someone who's dead, when they were alive, but Ali is still alive....so I don't make sense but, whatever. They seem kind of timeless and in the one with him in the corner; he just looks so menacing, its creepy and foreboding almost.

I feel like I should say something about AETM but I feel like thats done now. Here I go anyway. Well, first of all, I was reading and before I saw Ed responding to it, it was pretty funny to me. The comparison to GG Allin and andrew dice clay and Lady Gaga for fuck's sake? Hahahaha, fucking hilarious. I was cracking up the whole time. After I saw Ed responding to it though, it felt kind of awful. Another thing that bothered me was that you could totally tell he was getting a boner from Ed responding.

It's just weird to me how he's like a super-fan.....yet, he had so much bad shit to say about Ed. I don't get how that works. I know he regrets it now, and it takes some balls to say sorry, but I don't know, I don't feel bad for him. Out of everyone in this world, why does Ed need to be the one to be helping people, producing the most meaningful art, and doing whatever the fuck else he complained about, you know? Why does Ed need to not waste electricity? Did he ever say " Hey kids, I'm Ed Templeton and if you waste electricity, you're a fool, because I don't! Hell, I don't waste anything for that matter! Wood for my skateboard? I skate a bio-engineered highly recyclable and reused piece of cardboard!! My art is the fucking best! It's profound and in every shot there's so much meaning! I practice what I preach and that's why I don't live in a house, I live off the land and grow everything I eat!!!" I don't get it. Those things are ideals for a reason, you can't always live up to the best ideals. You can waste your whole life trying, but then you wont be living. You'll be striving for something thats almost impossible, especially if you have a life of your own. And Ed has a life of his own that most of us like....that's why we come here. It's fucking awesome to see that someone can really do pretty much whatever they want, whenever they want. And I'm grateful for Ed being able to do it haha. You inspire us ( I know you inspire me) and I know I only got to talk to you for a second but, you were genuine. There have been other people I've met, that totally did not care, at all, they were just waiting til it was over.

This kid was trying to nail you for being a hypocrite every chance he could. People change, and their ideas change. I've seen this quote somewhere, "The only thing constant is change." And it really is. More importantly, you never claimed to be or do any of the things this kid was upset about. I mean, by now we know, he was just jealous, but I don't know.....I think there's plenty other people to be jealous about if it's just about money. Who the hell knows?

Back to my real post.

Ed, you should adopt JGonz, you're already looking out for him to hang out with your friends haha. Such a nice dad.

These captchas are the best. I save some for band names or inspirations for band names or anything else that needs a good name, I'm gonna rattle off a couple right now. Radical occupation, Barrist Occupied, Soviet Shoes, McNulte Confirms.....yeah haha. Saving those.

Things that made me laugh last post. The fucking DevinBriggs.com post in the middle of everything haha. AETM apologizing for having bad spelling.

Dude,anti ed templeton manifesto. Weren't you supposed to come over to my house so we can suck each other's dicks? You also wanted to show me your Plan B board.

Quit promising shit than backing out, bro.
Txt Me later. -JGonz


Ed, this guy just wants socks...-Jacob

Seriously....just....the whole thing is really funny. except for the parts when AETM is just blatantly being a huge douche.

my post is way too long. but I wanna say thanks Ed, for being yourself.

i take photographs with love so i try to make them art objects but i make them for my self first and foremost
that is important - jacques-henri lartigue

once again forgive my spelling and i think you call it grammer?
