8.16.06 updating
teaserIMPORTANT NEWShey guys and gals, aight this is the update you need to read. the first eyes like static video premiere will be at black sheep skate shop on September 8th. its a friday so everyone make sure to come out and support your local slashin scene! we we’re going to do it on the first friday of september for the gallery crawl but due to the cops ruining everything during crawls due to too many people showing up we pushed it back a friday, i hope everyone gets to come out and have a good time and enjoy the video. Justin’s 18th birthday is the 7th so this will be a video premiere slash birthday bash for little P. aight get ready cause its coming! on a different note there is a skate / music fest at blue ramps this saturday, heres the flyer.this weekend diego, brandon, justin, hunter, jake and I headed to ATL. it was really fun considering we all went down there with only enough money for gas and a hotel. speaking of the hotel. it was the most sketch thing ever. it was like 38 dollars for a single room which is really cheap, most of the windows in the place were busted out and the halls were filled 59 50’s and trapsters. anyways im going to finish up the video. later

ok, for the video. i know everyone is thinking “it’s like july 6th, whats up with the video?”. ill tell you whats up. woodie, and justin both had some ankle problems and were out for a while, so they couldn’t get what they wanted to get. and the fact that i didn’t realize what it took to make a video “Motivation” wise, i had to check myself and start this thing earlier than i was going to. so i pushed realease date to LATE AUGUST 2006. so there, question answered. ok back to work, send me an e-mail or two. later bros.

4.20.06 checkin in
yo, we’ve all been out on filming missions lately, theres about a month and a half before the deadline to stop filming. im going to edit the video in july and it may be done with copies made by the end of july. thats if there are no problems. heres some info on some of the els soldiers, Oj sent his bangin sponsor tape to hubba wheels and duffs, brandon holds down the set like a champ and still bangs tricks out. and justin got on saturday skateboards. more info to come. peace  
4.13.06 90%
YES! finally i got some new clips up. they’re located in the content bar. the days later clip is a short montage i put together of a lot of people in our crew, and the HESH clip is evidence of this insane guy that came to our skate park the other day. he was straight out of the eighties, his name was harold or something. on another note, footage is coming in good, so the july deadline for the video is still on._______IMPORTANTi still have tons of stickers left, ill leave some more up at BlackSheep skateshop. you’ll notice in the two new clips that they are “choppy” and seem to be lower quality than the others. this is because i still haven’t got my compression program back up and going, so im compressing my video files with something im not use to. once i get back to my old program i will re-compress the two files so everyone can see them better. anyways shoot me e-mails if you enjoyed the clips. i always appreciate them. thanks.

 

4.9.06 just about there.
aight, im still going through footage and working on the new clip. i hope i can get it up by tomarrow. my compression program i had, got deleted when my computer was re-formatted so thats what is binding me from updating with footage. ill get it up and going again soon. i promise. peace
