I think I prefer the artist's rendition version of this photo rather than the photo. It's good to know that if I ever miss any photos in the future, I know I have the skills to simply redraw the scene.

Right after the contest Ends, the breakdown begins.
Back in our room, Clements and Porpe are posing for this "before" photo. To get the "after" photo, simply remove all the cash you see.

Watching something burn down is always interesting. I wonder how many chips were lost.
Ryan Clements' impression of that one guy.
There's a section in Vegas that's like a whole new city. It's amazing what gambling pays for.
Put all your money on black so they can pay the electric bill.

Just some random hotel lurking now.

I managed to get myself back on the Skatepark of Tampa Party Team this weekend. Got kicked out of the Hard Rock hotel once for trying to sneak into The Pixies show. A little while later, the same bouncer gave us the boot from another area of the hotel because Porpe flipped a table or something. Apparently he photocopied our ID's and we are now banned for a year. Was there an After-Party? I don't know, not sure if we made it or not. I have to return and stay at the Hard Rock next month for some bid'niss talk. Damn, I'm going to have to get my Hollywood disguise on.
