Ten years ago @tonyhawk asked if I wanted to co-host a show he was starting on Sirius Satellite Radio with he and @wolfmate. I had no idea what satellite radio was, but did I want to host a show with T.Hawk? Fuck yes! In skateboarding, weird things come and go, and I kind of assumed this would be the same...we would mess around on the radio for a year or two and that would be that. But here we are ten years later. Ellis turned his radio opportunity into a full empire at Sirius, and yesterday we recorded our 10th anniversary show in front of a live audience. Jack Black and Kyle Gass came out to play a few Tenacious D tracks, Tom Green stopped by, and Ellis returned for the first time in years. Thx Tony for the countless opportunities and good times over the years! Check the show this Tues on Faction @siriusxm at 4:00 pst photo: @mikeescamilla #siriusxm #tenaciousd
Nearly all the artwork i own comes from friends. Through skateboarding I've met so many creative people that there was never a need to look elsewhere. A few months ago though, through a comment on Instagram I clicked on @jaredwright's profile. A super talented artist that was offering 30 min on a drawing of your choice for $30. I took him up on his offer and got this piece done for my lady. Jared and I kept in touch and actually met up while I was in Tampa, FL to discuss working on some other projects. Unsurprisingly, I come to find out that he's a skateboarder. A long description for a drawing of an owl I know, but all this is to say I'm very thankful to have fallen in love with skateboarding almost 30 years ago. It's a school like no other filled with lunatics, artists, self taught businessmen, travelers, and so much more. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
Back in 99 or so I gave this dude some purple bearings to skate. The color bummed him out so bad that he drove non stop from San Diego back home to North Carolina...he was over CA and the bearings pushed him over the edge. Happy Birthday @tumyeto, we're all glad you came back. Thanks for being the most stubborn and entertaining dude I know!
