Sk8wars pre-party

in front of the Originators store making art In what promoters are promising to be the beginning of a new genre of sports competition in Los Angeles, Skaters are getting excited for next weekend’s SK8 Wars Urban Battles AM Tour.

Last night I went to a cool place called The Originators to a pre-party for the upcoming skate event.  I was told “This pre-party is expected to have swagger as inner city skateboarders know how to thrill” and really; as long as you know you are going to have a bunch of enthusiastic skaters around you can be confident in making that kind of statement.


Any place that encourages skating on their sidewalk and an ice cream truck that also carries emergency bearings and other skate supplies is O.K. by me!

Cali Pop ice cream truckI’m never disappointed as far as skaters are concerned. As long as they’ve got their boards in hand, skaters are ready to create. The camaraderie that is present in this sport makes it more of a social art form than a competition.

Tyson's Airwalk In the early evening, skaters were sessioning the front of the store and then moved to the alley to play  SKATE (it’s like HORSE in Basketball)  until long after the batteries in my flash let me down.

The Originators store is a cool place to check out with lots of cool graphic T-shirts.

I like  P-Wizzle wearing Skate shoes (instead of the “Big Shoes” $30.00)

I am President of The Fun Zone; The Center for the Study of Funism. I can not confirm or deny my involvement in certain random acts of guerrilla chalk art. I will admit to trying every day to anonymously do something nice for someone- anyone. When I write about food, it's because I can't help myself. I love food as much as the next guy, I only write about food I find myself obsessing on. When it comes to book reviews, I only write about books that I am inspired to read more than once, so my book reviews aren't about new releases that I liked, they are about tried and true books that I LOVE. I favor quirky stories, inspirational memoirs, and real life drama. There are many movies and books that I have enjoyed more than once. If you liked any of these, we probably have similar taste- Books: Peter Pan, Choke, A Life Without Consequences, Fight Club, The Adderall Diaries, Lets Pretend This Never Happened, The Glass Castle, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Wild, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Just Kids, Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Seven Psychopaths, Ghost World, Pulp Fiction, Hook, Big Fish, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Being John Malcovich,
