skinned alive.

A few weeks ago I got wind that the Ark Ramp was dying a slow death and the Skatelite was up for the taking. For those that don’t know what Skatelite is, it’s a top sheet used for ramps that is over $100 a sheet and we were getting it for free. So, Scott and I headed down south to retrieve the hot commodity. The only catch was that we had to take it off ourselves.

We arrived and were greeted by Chris…and this guy.

Working hard? Hardly working?


The Goods.

Out the door.

Loaded up, ready for it’s new home…where ever that may be.

and a few WWKS? (What Would Kyle Shoot?)

Stay tuned for the resurrection.

save a prayer.

When I was roughly 7 or 8 years old there was this girl across the street that would baby sit me. She was this kinda punk rock, new wavish chick that loved Duran Duran, and would be glued to MTV every time a video came on. My mom never let me watch MTV, so these were the only videos I was being exposed to. I guess it rubbed off on me, because to this day, this is still one of my all time favorite songs.


Just had one of these new Bud Light Limes and have to say it’s not that bad. They should be available in stores and your local watering hole May 1. You may be wondering, why don’t I just buy some limes and squeeze them into a beer myself? Well, i’ve got a nasty paper cut and that shit stings like a mother when citrus hits it. Problem solved.


new noise.

Although it was only one time, I was fortunate enough to witness these guys onstage. It was before the release of The Shape of Punk to Come mid 1998 at Showcase Theater. I had never heard of them before this show and was told that they were from Sweden and were amazing. Well, I have to say that amazing was an understatement. Unfortunately, they disbanded shortly after the album was released. Keep in mind that this is just about 10 years old…a band definitely before their time.


What can Brown do for you? Well, they can start by not smashing my packages to shit. I purchased the new Obey/Alva prints last week and although I probably shouldn’t have bought them, I was pretty stoked. This is what arrived today…hand delivered by my friends over at UPS.

Not so stoked anymore, but I guess it could have been worse…at least it’s not torn. With a limited print run of 200, I guess I won’t be getting my hands on another that isn’t creased. Not what you want to see when you take it out of the tube.

Looking past the 6 or so creases up the side of both of them, these things are sick!

Both are signed by Shepard Fairey, Tony Alva, and Glen E, Friedman.

I will say that this is the first print to get smashed that I’ve bought, but I would rather it have been any of the others. Oh well…
