Looks fun.

You went back to the late 80's you

Hi, Deanna.

Love love love the graf at the park.

MacDonners? MacDowels? The fuuuuck??
If only the Europeans really knew about us...

I wonder who dropped out to go drop in.. Ha!

I got a job as a front gate photographer at Knott's Berry Farm. Am I an artist yet?

I'll have to come by Jacob! Can you take your own photos?
Posted By: ed on May 17th, 2012 at 12:43PM PST
Yes Jacob you are berry much an artist.
I like this post by an Idoit.
It's like my little guy says if we try to help him, "No! IDOIT!"
Books at the Tate? That feels good.
Coming to America is still funny. Arsenio's heyday.
The no-slick look will be all the rage by tomorrow.
Sad? Not really.

Haha!
That would be hilarious!

I'm pretty sure I can shoot around on the camera they lend me, but not on my own.
Posted By: Jacob on May 17th, 2012 at 01:05PM PST
Good one, Eggs!
Posted By: Jacob on May 17th, 2012 at 01:05PM PST
Congrats Jacob, It's hard to get a job anywhere now days, you should be proud!

Woah Ed, nice hair!

Ed, are you joking on insta, with all the "like my photos and get a gift card plus new followers" comment???? I assume your being sarcastic cause so many commenters on insta do that. It's kinda funny. Good times.


That town looks pretty gnar.

Well my girlfriend is calling me to gEt off Toy Machine. She just said "get off Toy Machine, it's gay" I am just ignoring her and lurking anyways! hahaha see you guys later!!
Posted By: Josiah on May 17th, 2012 at 11:59PM PST
Josiah, Toy Machine is SOOOOO Hetero!

But it can be a waste of time.

I can think of a few things right off hand that you could be doing with your girlfriend and only one of them is watching TV.

Yes those comments are a joke. I kinda like that you can't tell?

This posts looks fun.

Congratulations Jacob! what do you take photos of? Do you like take a photo for people then print them out at some Kiosk? That job may have the challenge of changing your photographic eye. because i doubt people want to buy photos of couples smoking while riding in their Rascal scooters.

Question to our more dedicated skaters here. When did bikes start moving in to skateparks and taking up precious territory? Seems like skatepark means "scooter, bike, whatever the fuck contraption extreme jump ramp park" or something. I mean, yeah. I can be a core asshole about it but reality is that more kids and people that use the park the more parks that are being built. Shit. I don't undesrtand how Skater kids can be friends with a BMX kid. shit. I didn't even like the skaters at my highschool. maybe I'm just a judgemental asshole. maybe that's why I comment shit all the time. fuck me.

Yeah. the obstacles look pretty sweet. Ollie over the dudes Txting. hopefully they'll instagram your gnar moves and then follow you.

Now that I scroll through more skatepark photos. fuck it. I'd rather hang with extreme kids than whatever. like this kid that had 60mm soft wheels and his friend on bmx had a volcom hat and shirt and was like 14 and smoking.

yep. that elvis made me think of the whole Eswic,Leo,Jimmy bro style thing. ha.
To add to Josiah's story. my brother just ask me what are you doing. I said "commenting". he said "On Ed's blog?" I didn't say anything back. still typing. my family knows i'm demented and love the internet.

whoa. randomly see a van gogh. big cities are cool like that. just some shit everybody has seen,but the OG

that first courtyard photo. learn to fly on your broom.

Thanks for the wiki link. I still hope nessy is real.

Oh. Hi deanna.

your hair. so natural.
the oil joke made me lol

TJ Maxx. did you go there for pants? I like to score jerry hsu pants there and at ross.

dreaded sunny day. Cemetry gates.

king of snacks. pretty intense photo.

holy shit. the seconds pass and scratch my name. wow.
hm. I should buy her book.

It's funny seeing the nightlurkers go from a couple hundred lieks to thousands over night. then the "follow and I'll follow" comments roll in.

im digging your 'do, eduardo.

it would be rad if you happened to see rattray or stu graham rip that park and ewan bowman filming them.
of course im just overgeneralizing because theyre the only scottish skaters i know.

ive never been to knots.
youre sticking to that job, jacob, or just for the summer?
im going back to college until august 27, so i applied to be a food processor at trident seafoods in alaska and live in a ship for months.
i like to see it as an adventure more than a monetary necessity.

oh shit, a jgonz/ fresh split-second comment overload coming thru to your eyeballz.
this is just another sign, mijo, we're meant to be.
Posted By: fresh from mex on May 18th, 2012 at 09:56AM PST
lol I'm glad those comments are fake. It's really funny though..

Yea T.V vs Commenting here??? Commenting here is more entertaining and fulfilling, plus you get so much more knowledge about skating,Art, Ed, people like myself.


Yea Jgonz I like how your bro said on "Ed's Blog?" It shows your die hard. Obviously you've been doing for awhile. #gnar


@Fresh dude that so awesome! Is it the part of Alaska where it's dark most of the time?? I hope I don't sound like a ignoramus!


I love Coming to America, "just let your slow glow, just let it shine throuuuuuggghhhtttt YYYEEEAAAAAA, Soul Glow."

Yea I don't ever talk to BMX or fruit booters!
Posted By: Josiah on May 18th, 2012 at 10:22AM PST
Fresh! Jacob!
howdy y'all.
two bros we haven't seen in a little.

that sounds crazy. being on a fishing boat. but maybe it's more calm during the summer. Imagine the nautical life. wearing your Deathwish beanie on deck. ha. Team Zissou.

yep. I can't hide what I do on the internet anymore.
TV is so unfullfilling. I was watching a countdown on VH1 of the top 100 songs of the 90's. Anyway. my point is you have to sit through the commericals and stuff. and there's not really that much TV content going on. unlike the internet where you kinda have more control of your input.

anyway. that countdown had this song

http://youtu.be/X5ouOa9k0gE

that song is kinda connected to memories of getting out of school early on sunny days then coming home and watching cartoons and eating snacks. or driving around with my mom in the ford aerostar. Just being a kid.

that university is good looking. My school is an old brewery but it's not very impressive.
Ed you look so young without that grease in your hair. You guys are such a great couple. I'm happy Deanna waved at us frequent commenters. The skatepark looks creative. I don't know any BMX'ers but they seem fine to me. Alot of their manouvers are pretty sick. I just went to a FMX and snowmobile show in my hometown. It was pretty impressive. The snowmobile guy even backflipped. I took my little nephews and they were blown away. Redneckin sure can be fun.

The picture of Deanna in the circle of light is really beautiful. I'm super exited whenever I find one of your books. But I actually have never found any of them in Norway. I bought the cemetery of reason and deformer when I went to NY on vacation last year. It was my number one mission to find them. My lucky break was at wonderful Strands and I carried them all around NY and home again :) I've tried to get more books online, but with the taxes from importing them they cost around 100 dollars a piece to get shipped over here. Sometimes it sucks to live in a small country.

Trainride looks comfy. Trains are a great way of transportation around Europe.

Hello!

@josiah. youre talking to Mr. ingoramus rite here bud.
i went to alaska last summer and it was 24/7 daylight,
its the opposite during winter, which is the other half of the year pretty much. darkness auroras and snow.
@juanito gonz i have not seen that wes anderson film, it is from him, right? bill murray?
neon orange retina-fucking beanie?
thats a hip flick by a hip director,
kinda like the shit hip fat bill puts out like that scooters link.
i really dig his approach, his part is the only one ive seen from the cinematographers project, amazeballs i must say.
amazeballs

Sup mee braddas!

I don't know how long I'll be able to stand in the hot california summer sun. I'm not too big on sunny weather. It never needs to be as hot as it gets here. But this is a desert... I need to be in Oregon or Washington.

I have to shave for every shift, which is rediculous in my opinion. I really like hair on my face.

Ed, keep up the mocking of instagram.
I remember when people mass posted for followers & friendships... It was called MySpace.

Bill Strobeck has the tits videos.

Wow, so much to say and after reading everyone's comments, I'm forgetting haha. But basically, did you reference operation ivy? All I know is that I don't know nothing. And I know I'm probably being a dick now, but the post is titled, "images from and idiot abroad " did you mean an, or is writing and part of a pun? Because that's clever as fuck haha. That was a funny show too, did anyone watch that?

Jacob- congrats on the job
Fresh- congrats on your job too haha, that sounds amazing. Good luck with it

I'll comment more in depth later, can't focus right now haha
Posted By: Mike on May 19th, 2012 at 07:31PM PST
I fixed the title. I'm stupid.
Posted By: ed on May 19th, 2012 at 07:39PM PST
I knew their was something wrong. Than you fixed it.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on May 19th, 2012 at 09:28PM PST
yes I watched the show An idiot abroad, its funny.
Posted By: emilie on May 20th, 2012 at 09:46AM PST
@Fresh that's insane! I bet it's so cool to experience though.

Mike, never seen it. I'm gonna gogle it.

S, Sup!??

Ed, it happens.


I need to invest in more of Ed's and Deanna's books.
Posted By: Josiah on May 20th, 2012 at 01:07PM PST
lol \"Gogle\" it.
Posted By: Josiah on May 20th, 2012 at 01:08PM PST
JGawnz- You mother fuck hahah, I know you misspelled those on purpose. I'm not going to correct anymore, cause the time I fuck up, I'm gonna get shit for it haha. And it would be well deserved. But really though, sorry Ed.

That plesiosaur is so fucking cool
Posted By: Mike on May 20th, 2012 at 07:29PM PST
We all fuck up. That's the beauty of life.

So fuck all of you.
