Yesterday I was invited to hang out at the Zumiez 100k thing in Colorado where most of the industry and many of your favorite pros go to struggle at snowboarding and party for the first big event of the year. I was star struck by skateboarders and Hollywood at the crowd that was there. The party photos are so epicly epic that I had to make a "coming soon" trailer for them. I'll get to those tomorrow after I finally get some rest from a long trip home.

I don't talk much, but in this SPoT Life Copenhagen episode, I've got a record quantity of random banter:

So I filmed a part for 5-Incher today, but it was too late to make it into the video. I got a broom, wax, sketchy bums creepin, a 5-incher, and 90's flavor. All I need is a genny and a photographer and this career hits outer space. Somebody hook this kid upppp...

We've got a perpetrator here committing atrocious acts, or should I say poopetrator. Yep, this mystery character I refer to as the Poo Poo Bandit is not settling for the plain old upper decker. That's too easy since you have actual privacy when executing that despicable act.
This fecal criminal is TAKING A DUMP IN THE URINALS here at SPoT. Yes, you read that right. Full stand up, forward facing, hot steamy log pinch in plain view of any would be innocent bathroom arrivals.
The poopetrator has struck three times now (three times!?!) and it's about time we get to the bottom of it.
I interviewed some of the staff to get some clues to kick off my investigation...

When you land sketchy as hell, you can always save it by pulling the old Koston clown move and pretend you meant it to be sketchy. Thanks Colin for filming me while we were messing around a little bit before work on the Maloof NYC plaza.

What's that in the news everyone's talking about today? Some dude they were looking for killed or something?
Nah, it's all about me having my Facebook account deleted a few months ago along with the Skatepark of Tampa Facebook page. Check the news story tonight on the local tube at 11pm:
I wonder how kook I'm going to look. It's usually Clem and Schaefer doing this TV stuff. I usually remain behind the keyboard.
What a great excuse to bring up one of the photos they didn't like:
Maybe it's because we weren't showing as much skin as the Victoria's Secret page?

I've said it lots before, now Hammeke sums up my boring job history nicely in the new Thrasher with the best thing anyone's ever written about me. Thanks for the coverage! It's official, I'm not a nerd. Ha, yeah right.

A skate industry site has an interview with Rob about what it's like to be in the skate contest business.

Yep, things got way loose at Damn Am and I had to break off the bar and throw it at some idiot who didn't like our party:
