Kevin Barnett my long time friend and right hand man here at Toy Machine, based on his close proximity to me on a daily basis, has decided to document my art practice over the last 5 years. The film is coming closer to a finish line and he needs some funds to get it over the final hump.
Our ghetto version of the steady-cam in Gent, Belgium. I'm helping Kevin film the installation of the Cemetery of Reason exhibition.

I won't have spare cash till September.If it's up till then I'll donate.
lol I like how you used the word "ghetto" in there.
I love how Toy is about the bros.
Fuck I start school tomorrow. I'm going for Art and Drawing 1 is my first class! Yippy! Wish me luck. I hope I can prioritize my skating.

Didn't know this was in the works...I gave only 10 bucks. Might give more when I can but damn I would be stoked to have "Jgonzalez" in the thank you credits.

I start school tomorrow. I'm kinda ready. This summer had been like impossible shit becoming possible. London, Black Flag, saw Primus, had a good birthday party and recognized all the special people in my life (including y'all) since having Internet friends isn't weird anymore. Everybody does it now. Well. It was cool when we all were Internet weirdos and mobile Internet didn't exist. Also I could have expressed more intimate details about my life then, now I'm not so anonymous. Maybe I'll write letters. Maybe. Don't believe anything in my comments.
Update your tumblr/blog Josiah. Show me your arts/creations.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on August 25th, 2013 at 11:52PM PST
I like how you acknowledge that it's strange promoting a film about yourself. I admire the modesty. Some people just straight up are like me me me. I think that's also a quality that attracted me to toy machine. The self depricitive humor and over the top sarcastic language in ads/media. It's funny.
If I had 5,000 I would be so down to buy overlord art.
Good luck on the film, Kevin. I hope it comes out
Posted By: Jgonzalez on August 25th, 2013 at 11:55PM PST
Wish i had money to spare, I am going to try to donate before the deadline though.
Wish i had $100 for the zine, that would rule to have.
Best of luck to Kevin, hope he makes the goal
Hope everyones school goes well, I couldnt afford to sign up for any classes this quarter, maybe next one
Posted By: Tenant on August 26th, 2013 at 10:30AM PST
I will update it just for you Jgonz! Thanks for caring. Good luck with school!
Posted By: Josiah on August 28th, 2013 at 10:33PM PST
So excited about this film. I pledged for the zine...dont really have that much money, but I'm saving up for it now.
I think us loyal pawns have to get the word out.

rest assured, my ten dollars are yours, overlord.
likewise, every poster here will contribute
it's a no-brainer.
Posted By: fresh from mex on September 6th, 2013 at 02:47PM PST
That's a pretty cool article. I mean, when I go to shows i'm totally guilty of trying to get that right 'gram, but I also usually have my film camera and am dicking around with that too. I do kind of dance and push people though. so. whatever. I never really thought of it from the performers point. I also sometimes just like to stare at bands and watch them play. take it in you know.
did this webiste go down for a while?
only 10 percent so far and 50 percent of time is out. damn.

HAHAHA that fucking video. Man....I was not expecting that
Posted By: Mike on September 10th, 2013 at 04:56PM PST
Yea it's been awhile since an update.Hope all is well with you guys.BTW I'm banging this 42 year old. It's great!
Posted By: Josiah on September 11th, 2013 at 01:22PM PST
Ed, you should post on instagram/twitter/facebook that if all of your followers donate a dollar that this movie would get made. Maybe that would get more people to donate. Just ranting. I really wanna see this get made.
JGroinz- this site went down for me too a couple days ago. And as far as that article. I like to record my favorite songs when I see someone play and try to snap some pictures but I'm not texting and checking e-mails. That shit is lame and I think that's what he was getting at. Taking photos and videos enhances the experience of the show to a point. If you take too much photos or videos, are you really watching the show, or are you just watching it go down on the screen in front of you? You know? When it gets to that point, it is lame as hell. Not accusing you of taking too much pictures/videos just discussing the point.
Josiah- Nice ? haha
Posted By: Mike on September 11th, 2013 at 07:48PM PST
Oh man. Texting is super lame. I feel like a dildo if I have to. I mean some people are having full conversations. I ignore all notifications of crap.
Lets see a pic Josiah.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on September 13th, 2013 at 01:55PM PST
Its the worst hearing people talk at shows, I feel like a dick but I am always shushing people, but it's annoying as hell.
Why waste the money on a ticket but not absorb it?
Posted By: Tenant on September 14th, 2013 at 02:36AM PST
That's a interesting Topic Mike. Yea I try to ignore my phone when I'm hanging with my best buds.
I will insta it when I get a chance.lol

Posted By: emilie on September 24th, 2013 at 01:13AM PST
I think it's still gonna happen but may not be as pimped out? Pimped out meaning maybe like filming in certain areas and licensing good music.
Yes. I remember digi cam posts. Bro. Post it up.

How did Breaking Bad end?
Posted By: S on September 30th, 2013 at 02:31AM PST
haha I did not catch the whole episode but I know Walt dies. Jesse lives on.
Posted By: Josiah on September 30th, 2013 at 01:27PM PST
Saw it. Liked it.
Thankfully it wasn´t a dream or they´re all dead and
meet up in a church and collectively walk into "the light"...
So what´s next? Any recommendations?
Posted By: S on October 1st, 2013 at 12:48AM PST
Last tv show I religiously watched was my name is earl. I'm out of the loop on that show. Addicted to Instagram instead. I have lots of blog content I'm sitting on too.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 1st, 2013 at 11:36AM PST
Not a big series fan either. Haven´t seen Sopranos, Dexter and what else is there people are crazy about. Only watched a couple of episodes of Earl.
Stumbled upon Boardwalk Empire with Steve Buscemi. Might give it a try.
Why only these few pics from Euroland, JGonz?
Posted By: S on October 1st, 2013 at 11:48AM PST
here i actually updated
few pics cause most are just crappy tourist pics.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 2nd, 2013 at 08:09PM PST
I loved Breaking Bad and was very happy with the ending. Its the only show I actually watched while it was still airing and didn't just netflix it or download months later.
Great posts Jgonz, that is tight you got to see Greg Ginn Black Flag and not Flag or whatever is going on now with Rollins
Posted By: Tenant on October 6th, 2013 at 11:38AM PST
Has anyone seen Bronze Hardware's Solo Jazz video?
Vaporwave meets skateboarding finally, well... Maybe it has before after all I am way out of the skate loop by now
Anyways, really good video. Too lazy to post the link, just search youtube
Posted By: Tenant on October 6th, 2013 at 11:45AM PST
very nice, Jgonz!
Posted By: S on October 7th, 2013 at 02:08AM PST
ed, where are you?
Posted By: fresh from mex on October 7th, 2013 at 12:07PM PST
Judging by his insta he´s everywhere..

Posted By: fresh from mex on October 8th, 2013 at 08:38PM PST
I know this is the longest I've seen it go without an update.
Hope all is well friends!
Posted By: Josiah on October 10th, 2013 at 11:12AM PST
Thanks S. Thanks tenant.
I would love to see flag too. I'm too much of a dingleberry fanboy nerd. Mike v sucks in good for you. I mean listening to the record is kinda torture but live is so good watching Greg get in the zone. Pretty amazing.
Solo jazz wasn't as gold as bronze. Kinda like just made It cause of demand. I got the bronze DVD when that shit came out of nowhere. Sean powers is good. Bronze is sick.
Hahaha. Fresh' comment made me sad. It's true. Remember when ed updated when he was in Europe and traveling. I mean I thought he was crazy for spending time on his computer while on vaycay but. Now I miss u overlord. And insta is way easier to update. I wanna be in londonnnnn tooooo

Posted By: fresh from mex on October 10th, 2013 at 07:09PM PST
bronze is brilliant
i've yet to digest everything from polar, i think their shit is sooper great and fantabulous. been watching their vids every day for the last year
i kinda see why people hate on sean powers for his apparent forced movements, but he definitely doesn't blow and is good to the eyez
you guys should check out lurkville. they rad good
i really wanna watch tengu's god of mischief
Posted By: fresh from mex on October 10th, 2013 at 07:23PM PST
yeah. that cons clip is so good
poler is sick.
Seems like sean powers kinda has a limited like terrain selection for his skating. only like curbs and street.but skating is kinda moving towards style oriented people it seems. maybe cause street league and shit has kinda grouped elite unrelatable skaters into a corral.
I think Olson just announced his band logo on instagram
fresh. I know bro. you're one of the OG lurkers that isn't on instagram yet. that site will bring us closer dude. like. forreal. we're all on it.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 10th, 2013 at 10:30PM PST
It's almost 2014 and a lot of us same people still comment here. wow.
despite all social media outlets we still cling to this website. it has a community. a social network.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 10th, 2013 at 10:31PM PST
I´m only here because I like websites with black backgrounds. Youporn, Hellaclips, Toy Machine.
Any other good ones?
Posted By: S on October 11th, 2013 at 02:38AM PST
Do you think the people on facebook ever check this? Read and never comment?
I was a longtime lurker. I didn't even know about comments until a long time into this haha
Posted By: Mike on October 11th, 2013 at 07:23PM PST
Yeah are people like intimidated by our comments? I mean we do refer to each other by name.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on October 12th, 2013 at 01:05AM PST
i'm glad he's posting so much on insta these days. I bet there is going to be some mega posts here when he gets back. He had a picture of filmrolls and it said something like "80 rolls of film so far on this trip".
So are you guys looking forward to the Geoff Rowley epicly laterd episode ? I sure am.
I'm still here guys, but I've sucked at commenting lately. I love reading your conversations.
Posted By: emilie on October 13th, 2013 at 12:34PM PST
Yea I'm sure Ed will post some gems sooner or later!
Fresh get an Insta!
I love all you guys. I can tell you guys anything!

The only thing I really like is the horses board. But as of now it's skate mental 2.0. I wanna see more BA art on boards. Krooked 2.0 kinda.
