Have a shredtastic weekend!
If you’ve seen him skate before, you know he kills it. The Skateboard Mag just posted an article up on him right here: http://theskateboardmag.com/articles/contenders-nolan-johnson
This sign was on a patio that was about 10′ wide, and 15′ long- making it much more than impossible to even attempt skating, let alone getting a single push in… I found this beyond humorous.
Here’s something to make you wish you weren’t back at school/work today.
The photo below is a prime example of why I’m no longer a huge fan of current skateboard photography, or me personally shooting skateboarding.
I remember this day quite vividly (surprisingly)- I looked over and saw four (4) photographers in the deep end during an ok session I guess, and I just died laughing. There were no pros, no big tricks, no scenery, lots of pads, and it was at a skatepark- not ideal shooting conditions in my personal opinion. Scotts wife, Shae shot this photo of me standing next to the skate paparazzi. I don’t even think I brought my equipment with me anymore after this day…
I had no idea putting up stickers was comparable to graffiti; Especially when it comes to putting up stickers over other stickers. Everywhere I drive, I keep a gigantic stack of stickers of friends that I support (kl.com, radballs, smash skates, captain fin co., cycle zombies, and hurley) either in my truck (when I’m driving) or in my pockets (when I’m walking or someone else drives). Signs, menus, concrete, reflectors, poles, and cars with stickers are my usual targets and I usually place them in a lot of the same spots.
So lately, on my usual errands (bank, food, beach, home, etc.) I’ve been noticing that my sticker displays have been being stuck over. This stupid crew/company/meathead crap known as ‘Pimpit.com’ and some others known as ‘COS’ have been trying to take over ‘my spots’. At the bank the other day, there was a COS sticker over my radballs/captain fin co. sticker placement- so of course, i removed that crap and threw it on the ground. I go back a few days later- of course, my stickers are now gone with more COS and Pimpit stickers- how incredibly nice of you. This one pump at the shell station off 19th/Placentia in Costa Mesa, yeah- put up a Pimpit sticker over my KL.com sticker, and removed my radballs/captain fin co. stickers and put up yet another fag COS sticker. Dude, what the hell did I ever do to your company/guerrilla advertising? I never put my stickers over your piles of craps…
Long story short- Pimpit.com/COS; you’re toolboxes. I will rape your stickers with mine each time I see them, not only that- Im just going to start removing your stickers and not even putting mine up there. No one needs stripper poles, famous stars and straps clothing, or beer bongs anymore; its no longer 2001.
