august twenty-fifth

Five for August 25th:

This morning. Up at 5 am for some reason. Watched some Duel at Diablo on Youtube, drank a pot of coffee, set up a board, hung out with the kids, scarfed down a fiery scramble at Southwest Diner, and came to work. In that order.

Summer shorts. At the beginning of summer I buy a new pair of shorts and basically wear them to death. By the end of the season they’re faded, threadbare, and essentially destroyed from 3 months of bike riding, skating, sweating, and chasing kids around. With September just around the corner I noticed the tear in the crotch forming yesterday, and sure enough the button popped off last night. Like clockwork.

There’s always something. The brakes on my car are starting to grind, which is never a good thing. Taking it in early tomorrow- here’s hoping for a quick and cheap turnaround.

Cool stuff. Tony Hawk “Claw” deck, every Gamespot Game of the Year ever, meet the Iran BMX locals, Consolidated/Infinity sticker, backyard tomato haul.

Thursday soundtrack. Suicide, Buzzcocks, Gun Club, The Stooges, The Sword, Run DMC, Lungfish, Helmet, Danava, Diablo Blvd, Venom.
