What do you got? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And there are little tiny parts of us—parts that scream and burn and give us headaches and make our hair feel like we’ve been wearing a hat for too long—that really do believe it. “NOTIHNG!” they yell in twelve-story-tall letters that you can see from ten blocks away.

I don’t want to be overfed. I don’t want it to stink. I don’t want to cringe. I don’t want to hate. I DO NOT WANT TO GET USED TO SKATEBOARDING.

It’s an anomaly, a deviation, an aberration; skateboarding is a virus that bobs and weaves around the antibiotic of accepted consumer enlightenment, making everyone exposed to it feel ill—or at least say, SICK.

Skateboarding should always be a thing that pushes conceptions, a thing that scares even the crazy people, a thing that invents, a thing that stretches, a thing that turns heads, and a thing that quietly eats at the core of popular cultural theories from the inside.

Believe it or not, in a world that wants nothing more than smooth waters, calming opiates, and easy-to-digest-distractions, being as shitty as you want to be is a real blessing. Gesundheit.

You really forking suck. Skateboarding couldn’t be more difficult. Your scene is terrible. You maybe have one or two friends. No money. No job. Your set-up is completely ground down to a splintered nub. You have no earthly way of knowing which way it is you’re going … But the Sex Pistols couldn’t play for shit. Pablo Picasso was an asshole. Nelson Mandela was a stubborn and lowly inmate. Einstein was a C student. Follow @the.goodproblem to read the rest of Timbre #31: Good Health, or just click the link in my profile.
The shittiness you possess is something that cannot be faked. It’s so real that there can be no imitators, no pretenders, no one can be that bad. No one wants to be that bad. And you couldn’t care less. Follow @the.goodproblem to read the rest of Timbre #31: Good Health. Let's kick it, @loop_anubis I got you covered. Photo: @priceyhot
Movement—both away from and toward something—is where a pressure-free vacuum can sometimes be achieved. And there, inside that bulb, the goofy line and the regular line intersect, nollies stick to your feet, heels don’t drag down your Monty grinds, and the entire world smoothes out in front of you.

We all look for this kind of imbalance. It’s a futile pursuit, but one similar to the one that many misplaced souls chase every single day on their way toward an elusively perfect line, note, sentence, joke, or action—away from the ugly streaks of bosses, professors, creditors, schedules, and other yuck mouth blah blah blahs.
