cannot express how sick this flyer @kzarycki made is... crazy to think what started as a park video, became an annual event that brings a hundreds of people. as always cannot wait to show you guys. and I just hit the 3k mark on followers. much love to all of you! they used to never wanna hear us!! remembuh!? #tr4pordie #skateboarding
just found out someone burnt down yet another house at the heidelberg project. it's a shame that someone can ruin art. it's legitimately the only thing that matters in the long run. I shot this photo there, and couldn't believe how cool the whole block was. the creator seems to be pretty resilient, so I'm sure well see something just as interesting in it's place with time. #heidelberg #detroit
many moons ago on this same date, March 6th, 1989 I took my first breath of life in a hospital in Detroit, Michigan. it's unreal to think how much is experienced in life. we're literally CONSTANTLY taking in information. time and age is the most ridiculous measure. wisdom should be the measure of a human. I feel like I'm 100 years old in experience, just in a young shell. the journey to this point has been unreal, and every day I feel like I learn something that completely flips my old perception. I don't celebrate my birthday, but I do appreciate all the posts, calls, messages, high fives, etc. any time I can have someone's attention is a good time. just gotta think of the right things to say. I've been so consumed in the things were trying to create that I lost my track of time completely. I hope to see you all for the start of this new portion of the journey Saturday March 29th, for the premiere of #tr4pordie . literally wouldn't have done it this way this year, if it wasn't for all the people messaging me, or commenting, or asking about my part, and showing love. what inspires me is you guys telling me I inspire you. so seriously-THANK YOU. we literally haven't even scraped the surface yet. I would say sorry for the long post, but i don't care. while I have someone's attention, id rather leave them thinking. I couldn't care if you like it, just care you like yourselves. much love. I'm learning. own it. #skateboarding #detroit
the symptoms of creating something to be proud of, to me, seem to be struggle, and discomfort, and patience. can't be stranger to any of them. got to make yourself think you like them to an extent. we're sorta camping at the park for the next week or so, trying to make this video perfect. can't wait to see everyone at the premiere. Saturday, March 29th. #tr4pordie #skateboarding #detroit
it felt so warm out today, you can pretty much taste spring. no more -30 degree weeks, no more winter driving, or snow storms. t-shirts, sunlight, birds chirping, thunderstorms, and most importantly STREET SKATING. plus exploring and being outside at night. cruising downtown. this is a photo from a spread I had in @focusskatemag ! makes me that much more anxious for spring and doing stuff like this. some real cool stuff is dropping with them very soon, trust me! it's pretty cool. 📷broadway #skateboarding #detroit
it's Super Bowl Sunday, everyone's gassed up. I don't know if skateboarding is a sport, but I'll tell you this, filming a video part is definitely a team thing same as football. nothing is going to bond you like going out and doing something you're afraid of, put your heart into, fall over and over, sweat, spend hours trying, failing constantly, falling some more, and the only support you have for your frustration is someone's patience and time spent trying to create art with you. those are friends, and those are artists. I can't thank people like @stevisfilmz and @bobbysorich or the dude who made this photo @kzarycki enough. it's time to go skate. got too much done, too much to do. #TR4PorDIE premiere date announced in the next week or so. we're on Martin Scorsese with this one. #skateboarding
