Chinner was, roughly quoting Jay Brundege, "the annoying little kid at the skatepark" who grew up to become one of our friends, trying to find his way in the world through skateboarding. He's been a Game of SKATE crew dude for six years or so, and I'm psyched he took a chance and headed to South Africa for six months to work at the Maloof park in Kimberley. We always thought he was an Ace, now the folks in the former home of Apartheid think so too!

Not sure that Riley still rides for Telegraph, or what, but he rips the heck outta the Pink Motel. This was for a Converse commercial.

Haven't seen too many bands so far this year, but here are a few: Rocketship Rocketship, Deniz Tek and the Golden Breed, and the Gears at Punk Rock Picnic, and Devils Brigade at the unknown club.
iPhones are getting better. Still not great in low light-no flash situations, but acceptable. The Devil's Brigade warranted a real camera, but I didn't know I was going to have a photo pass. Thanks, Arab!
