It is happening...again. It is happening...again.

Marty and Randy were in town these last few days, trying in vain to film during Chicago's rainsoaked October eve. But that doesn't mean things weren't accomplished. IN FACT: everyone got good and tankered on the beerjuice and the whiskeysauce. And so here's a cheers to everyone who made it to Logan Square's The Owl last night for their semi-suspicious and surely not-long-for-this-world "$2 Tuesday" special. No lips were split, I don't think.

Oh Neen.

I don't know Neen that well personally but he is spoken of highly around here. A dam nice guy he appears to be and he's from Chicago. We dudes wish him the best, and by the looks of things he may already received it.

p.s. Stolen from Nazi Gold

With all my friends up there...

I love Wisconsin. The trees are mighty tall and it smells dam dandy, everywhere except the hole in the ground we had to poop in. Man camping is just fine with me, even if the men talk (mostly a certain man) about bringing ladies to the site and doing whatever you do w ladies around a fire. Every morning the sun gently wakes you up through the screen in the top of your tent, ahhhh. I rented this fancy lens to take on the trip w us, here are some examples of the outcome. I hope you enjoy these.

New pro gets backlit. This is my favorite photo of the trip. I geeked out on this one!

Freedom* gets flipped over.

At the end of the day it all comes down to how many cars you can frontside flip over off a loading dock. Check please.

*Freedom is an Oldsmobile.

New Department

I am officially announcing a new feature on the Dude Life News Service (DLNS), that is: drawings by girlfriends (or just somebody you meet at the bar/laudromat/grocery store) of non-human animals skateboarding.

Drawing of me skating DC Maloof with Shawn Gregoire coming soon.

Camping is stupid anyway. Jerks.

I'd much rather sesh a manny pad in a shitty parking garage. And draw pictures of it later. Because cameras are stupid, too. So there.

(whistful sigh)

Here are some Wisconsin Trip photos taken before my phone's battery could do anything about it.


Here are some photos shot with my Digital point&shoot before its battery could do a damn thing about it.


Twelve or so things that made the trip
David U's surprise appearance David T's antics (See the very beginning of Kyle's video from the trip) Ryan's camp cooking mastery and of course the supernatural board break Kyle's birthday shredding Dan's hump assault and wood chopping prowess Jackson's hubba assault and bank to curb business Joe's ollie up to 5-0 attempts and hatchet throwing makes Dorian dropping into the vert at Weston Nick popularizing the term "Chomo" Thank you, Nick Jack's presence Randy kicking it later, waking up later and still skating better than everyone (with the possible exception of Mitts) Matt ripping so hard every day at everything Making it all the more awesome the trip was his bachelor party.
