the pull to the westside bull

I'm so sorry for the lag on posts. My interweb interface was corrupted during our last rainstorm. Anyways, skated yesterday with Pat. We got off work early so's to hook up with Sam from LA and maybe the guy from the Cult's kids. They never came, Sam had to finish up his work as a question answerer for a youth oriented beverage brand's extreme sports focus group, and the cult kids were on a plane back to the other side of the pond. We had a good time anyways. First we went to El Museo Del Barrio to see the (S) Files, with our friends Pedro Cruz-Castro, Javier Piñón, and Shaun Leonardo (Shaun's link is to a video in collaboration with Kalup Linzy). It's an awesome show and we soaked it in for as long as we could but the daylight was burning and we needed to get to the skatepark. Being that we were in a rush mode, we rigged up an extreme tow set up on my bike so that Pat could surf in a hurry through Central Park and points beyond on our way to the spot. Here's some video of that and some sweet frontside skreechers from Pat and my new pal Renaldo (who had a classic set up from head to toe)

These Mushrooms are growing in my aloe, the same aloe from this old sculpture of mine. Looking at the pictures reminds me of how powerful it was, guarding the platform while providing soothing relief at the same time. Back then there were definitely no mushrooms. Now, much larger and lazier, it's besieged with fungus. Makes you think...

Balls of fire

David Dawson, getting the shot. Can I get a copy? I think they (our pictures of the same moment from two angles) belong together.

over cliffs with hands at 10 & 2

Theo Kropf, BMW motorcycle owner, playing his clog powered, chest mounted slide whistles. There's a lot going on with his art, but we'll all have to wait until Theo expands his website to learn more. Until then, I may have to feature him regularly on this blog. He's just that sweet, interesting & embarrassable. Theo, update or I put up the picture.

Maybe gifs?

nope, not gifs.

I made gifs for the first time today. They're fun gifs, waves crashing against the front wall of this sand fort. The fort gave way to the tide in the end, but I thought it could come back to life on this blog in the form of gif animations. When I load them on here, they load as png files and don't move. What gives bloggerdom? Please let me know the right way before I figure out the wrong way for myself.
