Point Four-Two....

Last spring I had the chance to go out all day to try and skate a bit for the Threads video. I was asked for a couple things for David and Creasy's section. It was a blast man. Everything was moving fast. Meet up, boom, shake hands, do some shuvits and noseslides, off to the spot. "You like it? Is it worth a shit?" Off to the next one. "Over it, where else?" "Nah dude, fuck eating, let's keep going" "Woah, look, Mike Devine's at Black Blocks. We gotta stop by again." It was great. We ended up at the Rock Park where Matt did this fakie shuv into the rock. Also, David Clark did an insane wallie bounce over a rock. Morico was taking pics. We were looking and thinking. Scheming and planning. It was getting dark and my legs were about to fall off. I pushed up the hill to my car, stoked on the day. Found a parking ticket. Laughed and thought, "That's kinda perfect".

Jay Buck Jam 2014!!!



I miss Jay Buck. It's been 14 years this last Halloween. We've missed a couple of these during those years, but we've managed to keep it tight 98% of the time. A lot of people have lost skate buds over the years, as have we more than just Jay, so we tried to incorporate a "Lost Ones" type vibe this year so more than just the few remaining dudes can get there session in for close friends that were called too early. Hazard was down enough, as always, to host it, grill out and get some shirts done in memory of the lost amigos. It was great. The sessions are always heavy and I think it's one of the better events that happen in the city. Scott Wagoner always hooks the shit up with the footy and the edit...and everything about the day is always so rad......
....with that being said, this edit Scotty made for his downrightevil.com site, I love it. Super grateful and everything, but the Mr. Move tunes he incorporates into them are just too trigger point for me. From the first rip of the songs, I can instantly identify them and my brain immediately flood with memories of absolute ridiculous shit me and my dumb friends would do at the shows. It kinda goes like this when this edit hits the 5 seconds mark...."Oh shit, Reggie! I need 2 tall boys and 2 shots of Jager. And so does Scott. Hurry man, the fucking show's starting. Oh wait!! 3 extra beers to sling. Thanks, see ya in a minute!!!!" They were the most absurd times I've ever had. And some of the best. I wouldn't/couldn't relive any of them if I tried, but as my friendship with Jay, they were short, full of stoke and very true. I obviously miss Jay more than alcohol fueled blackouts of the Mr. Move shows, but they left a mark on me that hasn't been dulled. Just as the few years I had with Jason Andrew Buck.....

Zine 5.


I made this. You can too. Tape, scissors, pictures and blank pieces of paper. Apply pictures to paper. Make a few different "pages". When you get it to where you like it, take it to somewhere like Kinkos and make some copies. They have a long stapler that you can borrow to make the pages stay in an order that you choose. Pass them around to people. Maybe you can sell a couple. The first one is gonna suck and take a while to make. After a couple of "issues" though, they'll get easier. Let me know how it goes. You already have one customer...me. Get to making something. You can do this. Today can be the day.

Reggie!



...coming in with them warm ups. This stuff is actually pretty gnarly for humans...and I'm not insinuating that this isn't gnarly. But if you've seen him in person.....well, these were just the mess arounds.
....Super stoked for all the recognition Reggie is starting to receive. I wish I could say I was surprised and overjoyed and all positive adjectives you can use to express awesomeness that a good ole boy and a 100% legit hearted kid is getting to do the things he's told me he's wanted for years.
"Man, I really just want to skateboard. Like forever, I think"
...We saw it from the first session. 3 old dudes taking a break from skating at the Columbus park. It was around Thanksgiving. It was chilly for sure. And we all agreed that whoever the fuck baby Gershon is over there sweating to death with a full beard should take that show on the road. Like most, we were blown away by the way he did things. 5 years later, others are getting to see the madness he calmly creates. When you see it in person, man..........it's not real.

Scotty Wagoner....



...if you've been living in Atlanta, yet have been camped out under a rock for about the last 10 years, you may not know who Scott Wagoner is. He's a skateboarder, bartender, filmer dude, King Diamond nerd, horror movie fanatic who ran the video side of ill-fated Atlanta Hates Us. He now does his own thing called Down Right Evil. If there was ever an edit that 100% depicts the filmer and the scene he films, you're about to watch it.
