Five for August 4th.
Tonight. Time to buckle down and mow the lawn after a few days of rain and general midsummer laziness. Gonna be a scorcher.
Skateboarding in the Olympics. Looks like it’s official as of yesterday, and of course people all over the internet are freaking out. Ultimately it doesn’t make any difference at all. If you like skating, go skate. Your boardslide isn’t going to feel any different because someone is winning a medal every four years.
Ballin’. Spent the last three evenings shooting hoops at Clifton Park with some neighborhood dad-friends while our kids played on the playground. We’re not any good, but it’s been fun.
Cool stuff. NOS Elephant Brand Skateboards shirt, bagels at work, morning shadow puppet shows with Jane, Banned in Babylon, Mike Gray Haro 2016, Wax the Coping: Sean Cliver interview, Trump aides are apparently suicidal, turkey & avocado sliders, free Wedgie picks.
Thursday soundtrack. Kylesa, Suicidal Tendencies, Public Enemy, Witchfinder General, Alice Cooper, Tweak Bird, Tilts, Goatsnake, W.A.S.P.
