Later days, 2010


As we say lates to the decade, we've got a pic of Chad celebrating his birthday in ND, a Concrete Bomber looking for a home at Baltimore's Vu Skate and Gabe wondering when he'll skate again in NYC. Things change but they're always the same. Certainly the last decade was a wild one. We're looking forward to 2011.

Astoria Queens New York

Asotria Skatepark,Gabriel Martinez

Hola patinetos. My recent Astoria skate plaza session was a pleasant one. This park is a mellow setup and provides you with all the essentials of a healthy whole grain line-up of challenging obstacles. Be sure to eat a wholesome meal before you approach this park because you are going to need the extra nutrients and stamina in order to get a full ride. The channel bulge in the heart of the park is probably my favorite obstacle because it allows me to escape the laws of gravity for about 2.5 seconds. I would have to say the whole park has a great flow and makes sense as far as the layout goes. Good work Steve from 5Boro and the New York City Parks and Recreation Department. Stay tuned for more episodes from the NYC skate scene. gm

I am an organ donor and if I die and my organs/tissues can be recovered up to eight people who need them can receive them. I like the idea that it could be the last thing I can give or do.

Randy's getting hitched and we had to send him off in style. The homies gathered for an adventure to the shooting range, bier hall and gentleman's club. Shooting was exhilarating for the new school and reassuring for the old, rattlesnake and rabbit sausage with Belgian fries were off the chain and the "gentleman's club" was ghetto and live. I think all agreed that it was great night.
