HOW IT WAS



















I am not going to sugar coat this. I miss this fucking kid!!! Chris Blank aka KING WEEP. He passed in November 2005 and things have not been the same since. It is like that when good people and good things pass regardless. This dude was special though... you could see it in his eyes. Soft spoken, fragile, righteous, soulful, skinny, loud, talented... you get it. People gravitated towards him as if he was some sort of soothsayer... a saint who had come to tell you that everything will be o.k. no matter what goes down. He was a chick and  a dude magnet, if you will.  A light would shine on him and he made people feel warm around him. Granted sometimes I really wanted to kick his ass in, but that's what brother do... right? 23 years is a long time to be close friends with someone. We stayed pretty close and solid from the beginning... High School, Skateboarding, New York, Snowboarding, Vermont, Skateboarding, Arizona, Skateboarding, New York, Skateboarding, Philly, Skateboarding, Wyoming, Snowboarding, Skating, Climbing, Fishing, Mountainbiking, Music, DJing etc...Damn those were great times. Getting too heavy... this kid was solid and he is missed by many people that he met everywhere he was. Let's all tilt our heads up and praise the man KING WEEP. He is always with us. Take it light and stay righteous... PEACE MY BROTHER.

POSITIVE

This is part of the change I was talking about in my last post. A little bit of outdoor exercise and cleansing of the soul and some powder in May. This has been a long time coming. Thanks to Russ' persistence and a little... I mean plenty of snow in the mountains, we set off on our trip. Although we did not summit, we still had an amazing time. We definitely are looking forward to some more trips in the mountains. MGMT was the soundtrack of our our trip. These guys have mad style and they are definitely one of my favs right now... check it!

CHANGE HAS COME


I have said "change has come" quite a few times in my life... since I probably started skateboarding when I was 15. I am pushing 40 now and the change is upon me once again. I will not go into details of my personal life, so with that said, I am in the mists of making a new mixtape. It's ok to call it a mixtape, I swear. This is not a type of mixtape that you make when your trying to get your girlfriend back but a mixtape for your listening pleasure or however else you want to get down to it. I will drop a couple of tracks here until I actually have the mix completely dialed... hopefully sooner than later. Thanks for listening because sometimes I have a hard time... peace.
