I'm not really religious at all, but still, after all these years, I have a fascination with the people who take it really seriously.

I've heard people say that toll attendants have a high suicide rate but this guy was the happiest person I've seen all week.

Billy Rohan is the mayor of 12th and A, cooking up hot dogs for all his children.

Billy's gonnna be teaching classes for skateboarding?!

If you know anything about skateboarding in New York, then you can't dismiss Scotty Schwartz. He skates more than anybody else I know. I had two shots left on my film and he destroyed two frontside feebles in a row going fast as hell. I can't say enough good things about this guy. He's probably skating by himself right now and I'm jealous. Because I'm the nerd in front of a computer and he's out killing it getting the spring sweat out.

"You, yeah you! Get over here. I'm going to give you the best job out of all the kids."
"But, I want to hand out pamphlets."
"Not today kiddo, trust me, everyone wanted to be the megaphone kid, and now you are him. So suit up, we got the crowd shuffling along soon enough."
"Shut up and get into the megaphone suit NOW!"
Little Johnny put it on and stood dutifully.

The Release Party for ThankYou issue one was a severe success with a lot of locals at Mars Bar picking fights with one another and then becoming chummy again seconds later.
Vince and Dan can be seen enjoying a fresh cut piece.

Justin is so psyched, he just got hired as a back-up singer for George Michaels come-back tour. Congrats J-u-ice!

Caroluchis and Danielle co-ordinated all the vegetable dips.

Sane Smith made a special guest appearance.


Pat goes big with this frontside 180 from right hump to left hump and managed to ride away, despite cracking his tail and the shotty run-away.

When you're cold and tired there's a lot of dread in knowing you have to climb up and over and under three fences.

Artsy fartsy sun ride towards James magic chain spot.

Razor wars buddy, Razor wars! I asked these kids if there are any video's for Razor scooters and one kid just looked at me like I was an idiot and goes, "Duh, dude, it's been out for eight years. It's huge in California and the U.K." and all his friends kind of giggled at me for not knowing about it.

Giese was so hyped on these kids, two days later I saw him in front of his house doing the much anticipated "Finger whip." I got a coffee and watched in secrecy.
