Five for June 16th:
Make It Stop. Greed, legislative cowardice, advanced technology — that is how we got here. The United States has been pummeled by gun violence since the assault weapons ban expired in 2004. This year, mass shootings have already claimed 61 lives. One class of gun, semiautomatic rifles, is largely responsible. But this nation cannot be a hostage of fear. We can make it stop.
Taj Mahal. Last-minute lunch date with Lisa is happening this afternoon. Tikka Masala, I’m gunning for you.
Skate shoes. Go cheap or go home. Paying $75 for a pair of shoes you’re just going to immediately destroy is absurd. Just scored a pair of $22 Fallen Forte 2’s online to replace my equally-cheap Cons I got on the sale rack at Marshalls awhile back.
Cool stuff. Mornings with the kids, upcoming break in the heat wave, Hangin’ with the Vamp, LifeStraw, Negra Modelos with Brian, stress-ball wars at the office.
Fresh setup. Got inspired and gripped up an old school Powell Ripper last night. Mini Logo trucks, OJ teamriders and some nice green Creature thin rails to round it off. One of my all-time favorite graphics and shapes. Brings me back.
