Ollie's last weekend!

In an effort to add some more tasteful content to the Cretin blog (if at all possible for a Cretin)...

We took no video (yet 3 or 4 cameras were in the vicinity) and we took no photos (at least 2 digicams were available)... we took only our gnar, and we left it there.

I love that park, but seriously they need to bust out the mop and/or the belt sander. EVERY surface is slick as the snot of the 2nd week of a full on 4 week head cold. Even with DitchTechFormula wheels, Skidzilla was hangin' on and not always succeeding.

We had a full crew on hand... Skidzilla, Pollo, Gimpy, Myself, Travio, Jr., Phil, John, Scott, Dane and Adam. And quite surprising, it was apparently Old Guy day at Ollie's. I counted only 5 lil' groms, and everyone else was at least 18-28 (other than us old melon farmers). Which made for a super fun session to just watch. Lots of rippers.

The bowl was my favorite, as it was the least slick, yet easily flushed me into a spin in the flat. The Micro beat me down. A slam hard enough that ya check the helmet to see if it's cracked. It wasn't, but my neck is still tight even today. I got my grinds fairly easily in the bowl this trip. I was STOKED!

Gimpy was on nitro!! He was hands down the fastest fkr in the place. He's one of the few goofy footers I can try to steal lines from, and I just can't... pisses me off. Go SpeedRacer!

We hit "Margaritas" restaurant for lunch. Breaded and fried jalapenos on a burger... good chit. Not quite as good as "Too many Top Shelf Margaritas at the Pink Taco..." but still tasty. Gimpy's lunch apparently didn't agree with him. Hope he didn't leave skidmarks in the wooden bowl...

I'll simply ask other Cretins to comment or post up with their highlights... damn good day skating with you fkrs. Lets do it again soon.

A shortened version of a movie game idea from a blogger I read on occassion. Snobbish, yea, but amusing. 'Tis also where I discovered the term "Melon Farmer."

It says to do 20 of your favorite movies, but I'm only doin' 5. I'm a lazy bastard. (I'm also including skate vids. Sorry Pedestrian Readers.)

A. Pick some of your favorite movies.
B. Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C. Post the quotes on your blog.
D. Have people guess what the movies are. (No cheating!)
E. Once it has been correctly identified, place the guesser's username after the quote. These are easy for real. Bonus points if you can name the character/person.

1. "I got a car now. I know what's up."
2. "Maybe you're not doin' it right, Roach."
3. "He cracked his head on a frontside."
4. "That's a bold statement."
5. "Schiess dem fenster"

    Good session, I'm going back Sunday for a 2 hr. session. Don't be a lightweight, come skate. Slick is an understatement but at least it gives us something to bitch about. It is a great park, with well built ramps.

    So cool to show up and see damn near EVERYONE from Louisville present. Had an absolute blast!

    I don't know if it was the restaurant's fault or the fact that I've eaten burritos for lunch almost everyday for the past 2-3 months (seriously!) and it caught up to me. All I know is my stomach started gurgling after I got home and I took like 6-7 dumps that night. Sheeeesh!!!

    Gotta hit Ollie's again soon most def. Not sure about this weekend yet.

    I remember little kids on scooters gettin' stuck in the bottom of that bowl when it was as Focus here in Charlie West. That thing is a beast!

    Damn, I'm completely stumped on those movie quotes.

    Hints: 1 and 3 are the same (skate video). And one of the others left is a movie from Renegades list. The other two remaining are blatant mind numbing action flicks, but I love 'em.
