New Rob Roskopp interview at http://www.pinkbike.com/news/rob-roskopp-interview-2011.html.
Unless you are living under a rock, you know that Jeff Grosso has moved over to the Anti Hero camp. His first board on AH is coming out the end of the month and the good dudes and Jokers Skate Shop are throwing him a party this Sunday at 6pm.

Rumor be told when Bob Log III was a child, he lost his left hand in a boating accident. It was soon replaced with a monkey paw, and a new guitar style was born. Strumming silvertone archtop guitars, exhibiting a full body suit, with a helmet/telephone mic combo. His alleged monkey paw moves so quickly it leaves his normal hand jumping like crazy to catch up, while his feet handle the percussion. Grab yourself a boob scotch and enjoy.
Heyeeeh! Lemme introduce the band to ya. On cymbals, left foot. Over here on the bass drum we got right foot. Shut up! This is my left hand that does all the slide work, right hand does the pickin’. My mouth hole does most of the talkin’. And you’re looking at my finger. My finger is an asshole.
Good friend, roll ‘n’ roll master and amazing artist, Ben Bridgers, has a solo show running threw the end of February at the University of Redlands Art Gallery. Opening reception this Wednesday, Jan 19, 4:30-6:30. Pieces include some very large scale painting Ben has done over the last year or so.
These photos don’t do them justice. If you can make it out that way, be sure to stop by and check it out in person.
I had the opportunity of going to Santa Cruz this weekend for the Vans JTDTI. Tradition continued, by handing out custom Vans cruiser decks to all the competitors, photographers, and videographers. This time, Russ forgot hardware, bearings, grip, trucks, wheels, and tools (basically, every single thing but the deck). He told me he was heading to NHS to pick up some shit from his friend Jeff Kendall. So I fucking went; Look.
Creature Decks, hot off the press.
Russ Pope designed this board in ’93; This is the board that the ‘New’ Creature
based their entire revival off of. I saw the office that Russ single-handedly created
Creature in.. He butcher papered the walls and wouldn’t let anyone but Novak see
what he was up to..
Make a shirt.

OG Grosso shit.
If you’re over 35, I’m sure your first board is on this wall (I only shot 1/8th of it..)
More OG Grosso shit.. the original toybox graphic.
NHS in all its glory.
