june twentieth

Five for June 20th:

Father’s day 2016. Best one ever. It may be a “Hallmark Holiday” or whatever, but when you have kids that are excited to go on picnics, get ice cream, paint you pictures, and wrap a hot glue gun in tin foil and give it to you as a gift, there’s no beating it.

Minivan clan. We got the family truckster a year ago today, on an epic whirlwind car-shopping outing that saw the van located, test-driven, and purchased in the span of George’s morning nap (he was with us the whole time). Since then it has essentially become our home on wheels. What would we do without this thing?

Reading material. New issue of Transworld Ride BMX, Aggro Rag Freestyle Mag: Plywood Hoods Zines ’84-’89, new Dan’s Comp catalog.

Cool stuff. First day of summer, Descendents interview, Mat Hoffman biggest air video, Garrison Keillor: the punk who would be president, Andy’s 40th birthday party, sliders on the grill, Seattle’s Best #5 Dark restock, weekend skate sessions, vegetable haul from Rick's garden.

Tweetstorms. I don't care how poignant it is, it's impossible for me to read anyone's essay/open letter/what have you when it's broken up over 65 separate 140-character tweets.
