Went skating to Blackhall drainage ditch last night. Was easier to find than we thought, only got lost once on the way. (Think we ended up in Hartlepool's number one dogging spot!) To get there you need to do a pretty long downhill which was fun until Andy ran over his finger. The ditch was hard to skate, you had to dodge water and blood from Dan's nose to get a decent run up. There was loads of shit going on - Andy and Paul made a pretty big fire which was later extinguished by Kev's wee! Andy did some frolicking(?), me and Kev did some skating and Bing did some filming, oh yeah, Dan was like David Seaman, saving the boards from going in the water! Thanks to Bingo for the photos, I could lie and say I made that backside flip but I didn't. Big up Kev for shutting it down - That shit was TIGHT!

A couple of weeks ago we visted London to see our friend Simon at Obey Clothing UK. Shepard Fairey was in town for 2 days taking in the sights and working on some installations.
There was a signing at Bond, Newburgh St, where Shepard brought 15 advance copies of his new comming book 'Supply and Demand'. This is a 390 page chronical of all things Shepard and Obey, it's huge, beautiful and you might need a new coffee table to hold the weight!!!
After the signing we moved on to a party in Broadwick street where Shepard showed off his DJ skills. (After being inspired by Z-Trip, Shepard has been DJ'ing in LA for 5 Years!!- check out Z-Trips 'Uneasy Listening' to see what got Shepard hooked).
