Ramps everywhere.....

I dunno what's in the air lately, but everyone is getting ramps in the backyards. Nothing like gettin some shit together. Gettin to work. And building something you're stoked on....
...Woody Trend put one up last month. Hear that Fred Reeves, Old Man Rob, The Cauffman's and other radders are down in East Atlanta on this thing.....
...Once it stops raining for more than a day in a row, I'm planning to get some rides in. I doubt if GA will ever have the Backyard Scene that the Carolinas and Texas have, but some are better than none....Good job Woody.....

Fifteen....


...This band was all over the Atlanta scene when I first moved up for art school about 1998. From the Seaboard dudes and Raffles Crew to the northern suburbs and even the Midwest connections all blasted these guys albums constantly. You couldn't help but love them instantly or have them grow on you and eventually knew every word to every song. Super political and one of the freest thinking bands I've ever listened to. Listening to lyrics that made you think about what was going on or hearing things you've never heard. Have always wished I had seen these guy's shows and was stoked to hear stories from dudes who had. This was fillmed 12/30/2011??!! Fuck. Please come round these parts. Me and my friends need a good night out....

Ohhhh Boy!!!

....one of Atlanta's finest acquisitions is Mr. Daniel P. Lunkett. Started showing up around spots and burning 'em down. Not even trying this dude is better than everyone. I've known him for atleast 5 years and can't recall anything being difficult for him. A founding father of the D.T.E crew. Super rad. Super stoked.
...Skate Mental says it's time for him to have a name on his board. We say, it's about time those guys started paying attention. The best of the best. If you've never seen it in person, you're probably better off. Depressing, motivating, face melting and amazing, watching this dude ride a skateboard. So stoked for you bud!!! Let's get that Bender Coozie art going. Boards are coming out in beginning of February. Don't be a cheapskate. Give your new favorite pro a couple bucks and buy his shit at full cost. Yeah Danny!!!!

......morico photos.

Mi amigo....

...been a fan of Brian Downey since the first time I met him. Super abstract. Amazing skater. Rad ideas and 100% unique. I heard he makes his own belts from scratch. Falcon Bowse indeed. If you're ever in Asheville, NC. Look him up. One of the best.
