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.....
