"If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don't bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay at home if you want, but don't bullshit yourself that you're not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not votin: you either vote by voting, or your vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard's vote."So sayeth the man himself. Now believe that and let's recall what it's like having bigoted idiots in charge, and let's exercise that vital right we're guaranteed as Amuricans, yes? Yes.

The blog will be very silent this weekend, unless our words guy keeps it bangin. Unfortunately he can't make it. The Dudes will be here this weekend meeting up with the Pretty crew. Camping will happen, as well as plenty of ripping (maybe I should have the words guy write this too, geezzz). Anywho, keep posted because we will be back. Boom.

At Wilson I once gave Austyn Gillette a razor blade from my center counsel. Then I went around announcing to everyone about how Austyn Stephens was at the park, like a dick. But now I’ve seen the new Habitat video. A report: Danny Garcia or Jose Rojo? Austyn Gillette is a latter day Carrol, seems like. Skates with composure and grace and ollies over the Brooklyn banks rail, into the bank beyond the stairs and Habitat is kind enough to show it twice.
Stefan decides to kill it and indeed does, then Gall is Gall and there’s some skating. The Mark Sucio part picks up after about thirty seconds. Bryce Golder skates like the best JP Samedi you never saw. Marius is proper and very fast and then Daryl Angel and Guru wins and then Silas at Wet Willy’s! Then it gets all art and drawing and we hear the Melody for the Felled Tree song again, confirming the tacit industry etiquette re: songs from tour or promo videos. And somewhere in there, Kerry Getz doubleflips.
All in all a great file to obtain.

There is a new little concrete park in Chicago inside Piotrowski Park. They have a very nice concrete bank to box and some plastic stuff. You will also find, hands down, the nicest kids you will ever ever meet at a skatepark. I don't know what's in the milk these kids are drinking but dam it makes them so pleasant. Go see, and bring your old product because they need it.
p.s. Who has a launch ramp? They do.
