DC Race.

Augusto Castro got 7th place.

Randy won the whole race. I heard that he owns the trail... hmmm.

John Purse

The DC Sprint Trials race was awesome. If you didn’t show up you really missed out on a great time. The rain did come over night but the tarps and the help of Danny Meadows the track couldn’t have been any better. Randy and his crew have been working on the track for two months and a little rain wasn’t going to hurt it.

Hey... Remember *Skateboarding... you'd better.

Daily Quote:
"The zero-sum game: that's the way it is if you're a competitive person and you see capitalism in that way. Zero-sum game implies winners and losers which I don't agree with. Somebody has to win and somebody has to lose, it all comes back to zero (minus eight, plus eight). But I don't agree with that because all boats can rise on a rising sea. Good films can help other films to be open. There's a different psychology at work. If you're overly competitive, you'll be exclusionary and say it's a zero-sum game (I must get eight and he must lose eight). Gekko simplifies it down to a painting. He says he bought this painting or this building for X and he sold it for Y and he made that profit and he assumes that somebody else got beat, but that's not necessarily true. You don't always lose."

Saftey First.

In the winter of 1976 Evel Knievel was seriously injured during a nationally televised performance of an attempt to motorcycle jump a tank full of live sharks in the Chicago Ampitheater. For the first time a bystander was also injured when a cameraman was struck, eventually losing an eye. Knievel, who suffered a brain concussion and two broken arms, decided to retire from major performances but continued to do smaller exhibitions around the country with his son Robbie, establishing him as his successor.

Oh My God, It's Coming Right For Us!!!

It didn't take much coaxing to get Frankie Lynn to go for a spin on the GT cruiser. There goes the neigborhood. Good thing the store is only six blocks away.

The first ever Psykopath video is now underway. Today we went to the skatepark and there was plenty of footage to be had, and had it was. Afterwards, those left standing went to the Pink Wall schoolyard and here's a little of what went down.

Shameless Self-prompotion

The band of the week is Malarkie. You should check them out on everybody's favorite waste of inter-web surfing time, myspace.

Wouldn't it be cool if a bunch of hippies figured out how to save the world and build a decent skatepark at the same time. These dudes in Washington DC may be on to something good.

This is a joke:
A priest, a minister, and a rabbi walk into a bar, and the bartender says, "What is this, some kind of a joke?"
