Five for April 17th:
Star Wars. The newest trailer for The Force Awakens was released yesterday, and despite my good-natured comedic jabbery, I have to admit it looks pretty f*cking amazing and I’m excited to see it.
"Free-range parenting". Or, as I like to call it, "parenting": "The state can’t infringe on parental control over child-raising unless they have real evidence showing that there is a genuinely significant threat to the childrens’ safety and well-being. Forcibly detaining elementary school-aged kids for walking by themselves in a safe, middle-class neighborhood doesn’t even come close to meeting the necessary standard."
Skate or die. Sweltering evening at Ramp Riders, but fun as always. Chris C was on a mission to completely demolish the mini-ramp, and he nearly succeeded.
Cool stuff. Simple Session 2015, morning coffee on the front porch, Kashi Cinnamon Harvest, Jeff Grosso’s Guide to Inverts, Sumatra stash.
Weekend action. Mellow one coming up: Frozen yogurt and hitting the playground with Jane tonight, skating tomorrow, maybe checking out some Record Store day shows, mowing the lawn, playing drums, hanging out.
