I’ve loved skateboarding for what seems like my whole life. It is the reason I’m still alive today, without a doubt. Tattooing has been great to me, and I love it, traveling as well… But there is nothing that feels as good as skating with my bros, feeling like there wasn’t another person on earth besides us…. I guess I’ve been chasing the dragon like some kind of heroin guy or whatever with all the travels and tattoo stuff, just hoping that something will feel as great as those days…. No luck yet….. Anyway, if I break my arm, I can’t work, so skateboarding doesn’t happen much in real life for me anymore…. But, and if you know me, you know this is true, I still spend a lot of time lost in my mind skateboarding like it was 1992 everyday…… Tech decks are the best thing since the real thing.

To quote Adam Bolt, (him and Rob Vantol and Matt Hensley will always be my favorite skateboarders ever) ” I might not always skate, but I will always be a skateboarder. ”

Sammys Roumanian

Went to Sammys Roumanian steakhouse tonight with Bryan Randolph, Sarah Schor, Daniel Albrigo, Damion Ross, Eli Quinters, Stephanie Tamez, Virginia Elwood, Chisaki, Josh “bong hit” Harris, and James Motz. If you haven’t been there and you are either living in NYC or lanning a visit, it’s a must. Danny Love on keyboards, vodka in a block of ice, schmaltz, which is rendered chicken fat on the table as a condiment, it doesn’t get and better than that.
