Vidiot pt.3 Chicago, 1997...

So, here's an old vid from 1997 of soem Chicago heads that are still pretty much in the game, if not running things in the city now, aka Uprise skateshop.
There is also soem footage from a small BBQ / tour stop for soem skate team that I remember going to at the Oscar Meyer school. It was around the 4th of July and I remember going with James Wilscke.

I forget waht team, but Dune and a Cardona (either Mike r.i.p. or Quim) where there. I do know that I still have soem photos from that dei, they aren't that great because the only camera that I had with me in the car was a "Sure Shot."
If you would like to see the pics, please leave a comment, and I will try to scan a few for a future post.

Absorb: Karma Skateboards...

Karma/Absorb 35 from Dave Ackels on Vimeo.
Karma Tsocheff and friends!

So, here's another installment in the Absorb series by Ohio Dave. This one is a small montage video for Karma Skateboards.

Here's a small bio on Karma [the guy] from their Facebook page: "Owner Karma Tsocheff's early days were spent skating the streets and backyard pools of Visalia, CA. He turned pro for Dogtown when he was 17 years old and hasn't looked back since. After Dogtown, and an epic video with John Cardiel & Wade Speyer( that people still talk about), Karma rode for SMA with Alan Petersen.. and from there he helped start Consolidated Skateboards, with whom he will always be a part of...."

Mark Gonzales: Gonzo Goes to New York...

So, this lil video time machine is from the skate flick "Mondo Vision" which was released by Vision Street Wear in 1989.

This video was originally Uploaded by on Sep 9, 2007 to YouTube.

The Polar Skate Co. Promo...

So, I just saw this on the Facebook page of Concrete Wave Skateshop, they're located / based in Cologne, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.
Their contact email is 
and phone +49 0492213974669
The video is all in B&W, has just the right amount of artsyness without taking your stoke away from the skating, which, by the way is soem of the most  bestest skateboarding I've seen in soem time. So fast, real street spots, core street ethics, DIY ideals, and a love like no other.

These dewdz skate so friggin fast on soemof the gnarliest terrain. I may not know a lick of waht they're saying, but you don't need to.
That's one of the great things about skateboarding, it's like music. (and math)

Can I just say that the opening line, as well as others, from [waht's his name] is lightning quick with the musical selections to match perfectly. (except the rap track) <----- that's just me, though.
Joy Division, Devo, etc...

Nanoparticles In Food, Vitamins Could Harm Human Health...

So, this is an interesting article about how Nanoparticles in food, vitamins could harm human health.
Nothing better than a few lax'd FDA guidelines to give me more styrene for breakfast and block my iron intake therefore making me anemic therefore making me spend more money on pharmecuticals.

You Ever Do Hand Plants...?

You ever do hand plants? from Dave Ackels on Vimeo.

So, I first met dave around 1993 in beautiful St. Charles, IL 60174 at this really kewl, trendy coffeehouse, Coffeehouse Ghiberti.
Back then we just called him Ohio Dave, and he filmed my friend Sam skating all the time, even made him a short skate video with a Dinosaur jr. song.

It wasn't until recently last year, while looking at my friend Jay's FB page looking at his friends, that I saw the name Dave Ackels. Now Jay being from Ohio, I sent a message to Dave and kindly asked if he'd ever done time in STC, and did he ever go by "Ohio Dave."
The answer was yes, and he [sort of] remembered me.
Skateboarding is a small world.

Here's my shoes I wear at work, I stand them up when I leave.
One dei I noticed that I was giving maiself Nebos.
Moar like n00bo.

Rachel Reinhard...

So, this chick is pretty good.
One of the best things in this video is that she doesn't push Mongo when skating swinch, and that Back Disaster as her ender is pretty dang dope!!!
Waht is it with chick skaters and "the butt?"
Is it a center of gravity thing?
Why do most of them stick it out?
At any rate, I hope she keeps it up, loosens those trucks, and keeps PWNing.

Just because I like the music so much, doesn't mean that I live the music.

Bugs Bunny: All This and Rabbit Stew...

So, this is just one of the many Bugs Bunny cartoons that I grew up watching as a kid.
I still think it's funny, you just have to look beyond any suggestions.
As a kid, I didn't know anything about racism, I just saw it as a lonely, down-on-his-luck hunter just trying to hunt & find a rabbit to feed himself, and quite possibly his family. All the while making him run around in circles w/hilarity and hijinks throughout. 
Whether the characters are lazy blacks, white bumbling oafs, or slant eyed AZNs leave it to Bugs to make a fool of them all equally, and that's really waht the stories are all about.
Hey, he even did the saem things to Daffy.
Li li li li li lighten up folks...
