Been awhile since I've been out of town...

...but at the end of the month, Me, Jed Davis, Chris Head and a couple others are going on a skate camp trip up to Asheville N.C. And to some state parks to ride some shit Head found while camping around. Spots in the woods far away from civilization and some po dunk towns guaranteed to make yer home town look metropolis. This place is our first stop.....hell I may set up shop and not leave. This shit looks awesome!!

Alex went to Florida....

...and did a boat load of freestyle flippers. came up in 3rd. Good thing it wasn't a beauty contest.

...lanky ass nollie heel.

Reggie was there but got taken out in the first round. Just the way we like 'em. Either do super good. Or fuck it up right off the rip. Bender dudes....



Someone sent me this....



...and it's so rad! kinda makes me miss Jones County, GA. Just the commentary, the middle of nowhere road, the dude saying "have a seat" after homeboy gets wrecked...i dunno. But this had me rolling!!!

New drama!!!!

...the twins have this bizarre article on the Vice website. We've known them for over 10 years. Skated together quite often and is awesome, weird and confusing reading Nieratko's interview. I love it. Personally it was entertaining and blah, blah, blah. The comments are worth looking at if nothing else. Insane! Dudes names are thrown in and dissed like "Why the fuck is he relevant?" But, now there's a whole "thing" about somebody's Tumblr that makes fun of all the dudes in the city. I was kinda pissed hearing about how shitty it was and dissing, heavily, people who are close to me. Then looking at it tonight, I actually found myself chuckling at it. I don't agree with it, but it's kinda witty. Shit, to be honest. Who gives a damn. Move on and live. Although, many stories are sure to come. These things have a way of becoming sensationalized and blown out of proportion. But shit. Really? Who cares. I love this city.....

Mass Thanks!



...to everyone who's bought, ridden, asked or even thought about Bender Hardware. Ruin Skateshop, Hazard County Skatepark and Cuckoo's Nest in Columbus were the first ones to pick them up. I've been painting bolts, making the boxes, packing the boxes, mailing them, delivering them, thinking of ad ideas and new shirts, trying to skate, look for a job and hanging with my family. Been a little busy. Been real fun so far though. I hope to see you dudes out there somewhere. I appreciate it........'yes it's gay for me to run a photo of myself'
