SANTA DOES EXIST

so i get off work at 2:30 and head straight home to pick up my kid at the neighbors. and so i decide to whip out the blower and get rid of the leaves and pine needles in front of the path to my door. so i need the electrical cord to run the blower. and by this point my lawnmower is electric too. so i say "fuck it" and start mowin my lawn. after i couple of minutes for what ever reason i glance in the back of my pick-up. low and behold it was a 12-pack of pbr genuine draft. i shit you not i do not know how it got there. and to make it even crazier, that shit was cold.

THE KOOK NETWORK CHANNEL.

so the other day i was doin somethin and the t.v. was on and i heard some guy sayin. mega ramp is out and big air ramp is in. i almost threw my beer at the screen! what the fuck does this kook know? he has probably never dropped in on a vert ramp. fuck i remember when you didn't need an elevator to get to the top of a ramp. and now it's all about how far you can huck your carcass. don't get me wrong when i saw danny way do that shit back in the first D.C. video i was blown away. but leave it to espn to take somethin so gnarly, and capatalize off of it and make it the norm. so know every soccer mom and dad think that is what skateboarding is. so now what? most fools ain't gonna do that shit. so you better learn quick or your energy beverage house payment is gonna bounce. or better yet get wrecked on that shit, while on tv and be known forever as that guy that bailed from 2 stories up, and they will for get about the fact you fukken rip. but you will always be known as that guy. skating vert is gnarly enough, but i guess espn's capitalism will only die along with the guy that claims his life from this shit. ******(i do not wish for anyone to get hurt on that shit, but what will it take for skateboarders to take thier shit back.) and if you wanna see what a real ramp contest is like: youtube or google THE RUMBLE IN RAMONA.

HOLIDAY TRADITIONS.



it seems like every christmas i have two traditions that i have to do in order for me to feel like it is christmas. and i know for all my friends they have one or two that they have the need for as well. i am hopin that one day when i am dead and gone my kids will keep it goin. cuz, i never had a tradition till' i was about 22, and made it for myself. so i hope that this will make you wanna make your own lame ass one like myself.
----first i gotta watch A CHRISTMAS STORY. and if you have never seen that shit, then i suggest goin on to netflix and renting it.
----the second is i gotta listen to the VENTURES CHRISTMAS. the ventures are a old surf band that ruled. and i have a old cassette that just makes it even better.
----so turn up the volume on the video so you can hear the popping and crackling of the record to put you in the christmas spirit.

3...2...1....LAUNCH

so i saw this clip on shred or die and thought about when in the 80's nothing mattered but hangin out with your buddies and skating. and then the new thrasher showed up with a little throw back article by sal barbier and it made me think. skateboarding was nothing like it was today. there were no mega ramps or skateparks.the kids of today have got it easier. you can go anywhere to buy a board. almost every town has a skatepark. i know this is gonna make me sound like an old guy. but when i was a teen we had to build our own shit outta what ever we had. so if you got lucky, you had enough wood to make a launch ramp so you could do vert tricks without having a vert ramp. i tried to get a bunch of people to send me photos but this is what i got. and now you now why all the skaters from the 80's got bad knees and backs. this is also where the term "fatty to flatty" originated from.

SKATER OF THE YEAR PARTY.


silas won skater of the year, and if you havent seen any footy of him just youtube the shit. he has the most laid back style. and one of the most humble guys i know. mix that with being a total ripper. and now you know why he won. there were many people in attendance, by the likes of, gravette, horn, wade speyer made it out. dennis buesnitz and his ol' lady julia. i think i saw jeff kendall, eric gonzales, ramondetta, gerwer, manderson, and even jim thiebaoud, and i cannot forget mick-e. i wanna thank silas for hookin me and my ol'lady up with a date night. and i wanna thank tony and ash, for letting me and kelly for crashin on the couch. and brian for drivin our behinds over there when the party was done.

THIS ENTRY HAD ANOTHER TITLE BUT KNOW IT IS CALLED"FUCK MYSPACE"

i usually make these little commercials for myspace to get readers over here to check out what the chronicles are all about. but they suspended my video use, for copyright infringement for this song from the movie crybaby. so know i am gonna throw some sucky bass line i just made up and try to repost it. well at least you get the real feel here from the chronicles. and there is what i originally posted below, before i got pissed.
-----------so what are you supposed to do with all those jpegs you save to your hard drive? half the time they just sit there. and since i havent got any footy on the dad cam in a while. i decided to make another commercial outta this stuff takin up my hard drive.
