In his defense, I think he doesn't see himself as someone who should be signing a poster - he is not one of the skaters, or "stars."

Got his signature...YES!

He's well hung? I guess i need to look closer at that one photo with all the diamonds and geometric shapes.

Blogging weapon of choice, a Canon. The one they shot the Lakai video with.

The japanese note, with the cute little sunshine. How has that piece of paper not melted away yet? Maybe god loves MJ and preserves his shrines.

We all want money.
Some ask.

Rites of Spring,eh?
Wikipedia says their genre is Emo. I think the whole Emo controversy has died down. Now i guess it's all about the hipster. Anybody else remember the early 2000 goth?

Last photo, looks like a fun place to play with a Bouncy Ball. Destroy art that took ed hours to make.

When I'm a billionaire, i'm gonna buy all these pieces of art then put them all on my walls like this. Then buy Toy Machine and sell it to Kmart. NSSXToy Machine shoe collabo.
Give Austin Stephens signature plastic trucks.

Maybe Kevin didn't have a pen and preferred not to write his name in blood?

Got the new Transworld in the mail today.

Damn.

Kevin is my favorite person, and thus i want his autograph.

I remember a lot of goth kids in mid-2000.

I went grocery shopping today.

Saw this goth dude with this cape trench coat wearing black skechers. tight.
We're all pussies for not wearing whatever the fuck.
Skater outfits.

All this artwork is inspiring me to do some of my own haha. I haven't in a while, I should though.

I feel bad for that tree, it has all those dirty pins in it. That can't feel good haha.....maybe plants can feel, who knows? Such a weird spot for a memorial anyway. At the zumiez demo over the summer I had the "leo's managers" board signed by Jimmy, Ed and Leo...and Cairo....and no one else signed it haha. I need to see Jetski and get him to sign it. I feel that once Cairo signed it, everyone else should have, but nobody did haha. But it's okay, Cairo is awesome
