Harrison Harmony was getting in on the autograph action along with Leo and Josh. Young Piscopo laments the awkwardness of puberty.
Action shots? Damn right. Josh tackles the 6-inch high hubba with a 5-0.
A-Stone flies over the whole box to front board. This demo was freaking bionic.
The crowd was mostly mom's. Parents outnumbered kids!
The two-fold spawn of J. Arrighi lived through the event. I hear it was 50% more boring than a Spongebob repeat. But Jimmy preferred it over the Spongebob movie which I made him go see.
I am certainly getting old, but there was a certain disconnect between the pro and amatuer skaters and the crowd who came to watch. They all have skate gear on, but don't know who you are. I can understand not knowing who I am, I'm not in the mags as much anymore, but not knowing Leo Romero or Josh Harmony? Skateboarding seems to be an interest that one needs not do anymore? Like I watch basketball on TV but don't even own a basketball. Is that where skating is? You like it, and may attend a demo or the Xgames, but don't buy videos or magazines. You are only aware of the most widely available form of skating that is on cable TV. It must have not been as fun skating a janky setup for mostly kids who want to see "big-air" and not the amazing nuanced skating that a skate team can provide. Oh well, fuck it, it's still skating, and it blows anything else on earth away.
Girls love Julian, this one who could have been his mother was hanging out with an even older one who miraculously made daisy dukes look bad. Julian slipped her his phone number since she was after his young meat all day. Might as well provide.
There was a multitude of candy there which we passed onto the kids.
Yet another female who wanted Julian. Look at the kid in the background. What is he thinking?

Josh Harmony, worlds nicest and most handsome boy. I wasn't skating because I shattered my finger.
Austin Stephens is entering his "Hillbilly" phase. I bet he trades in his fuel-efficient Honda for some old gas guzzling pickup truck that he'll park on his lawn.
"Is this for the Toy website?" Whoa! you go there?
Closer is usually better. There you go, a free photo-tip from the Tempster.
