In 1998 I sent some footage of my boy @willharms to @411videomagazine because he was working on a Wheels of Fortune. A few months later I went to Tokyo and filmed a World Report. The rest is history. My time working at 411 opened the door to a lot of opportunities that have helped me get to where I am today. Thank you @joshfriedberg @cortizphoto @mdvlove for giving me my first job in the skateboard industry. 411 will always be my first skateboard family. 411 annual skate reunion on 4/11.
I haven't X'd up for a show in years. At least the security guard could have hooked up a better X. The girl in front of me reppin Earth Crisis on her backpack. I'm here way to early. Burn doesn't go on for two more hours and I only know two people here who I haven't seen yet. I miss going to shows in Philly. @burnnyhc #burnnyhc #unionla #straightedge #sxe #xvx
The last time I saw Burn play was Turning Point's last show in Philly at revival June 15th 1991. I lost my OG Turning Point shirt I wore in my Thrasher Magazine check out. Thank you @jayjl for sending me this to wear tonight at the Burn show. @burnnyhc @thrashermag #burnnyhc #turningpoint #straightedge #sxe #straightedgehardcore
