Putting the FUN in Funeral...

While in Hawaii celebrating the life of a lost loved one, Skidzilla took Gibzilla and his cousin to the beach for a bit o' surfin'.

Just waitin' for my set...
Ain't no thang for the Gibster
Old man gettin' up slow...
Surfin' like he skates... ANGRY!
Cousin Zane - Cruisin'

A horrible reason to go to Hawaii, no doubt... but Hawaii in December most definitely kicks December in Kentucky squarely in the ass.

A loss in the Cretin family...

Even an extended family member of the Concretins is a loss. Sharon (Mrs.Skidzilla) lost her brother last week, and a Brother-in-Law of a Cretin, is a Brother-in-Arms to the Cretins.

Please keep the Skidz and Endresens in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season, as they mourn the loss, but celebrate the life of one of their own. Peace to you and yours Skidzilla.

Everyone, why not stop right now, and go hug those who are important to you, and tell them you love them.

Friends, Skaters, random readers and certainly all of my fellow Kooks and Concretins, I love ya. Thanks for being a part of my life.

Burn Baby Burn!

Skating in December - February used to mean an all day affair. Roadtrip, gas money, lunch money, and $20 for the session. Ollie's Skatepark in Florence, KY is kickass, no doubt. But now, all I gotta do is cross the big creek into Hoosierville and the gnar is on. And once the Bar Knuckle Lounge is complete, with a couch, cooler, and ping pong table for TheProfessor, Travio might have to put up with some transient skaters.

The Cretins have been somewhat spoiled, with almost exclusive sessions all the time. Even at the park, when we're there, we're the only crew rockin'. Well, the word is out that Cretins got it goin' on. I saw several new faces at the Barnacle last night. Stick with us kids. Cretins'll make ya famous.

And it burned burned burned... The ring of fire...

FRO was a bit under the weather... nothin' a few drinks won't cure...
Stylin' Sweeper, right up until he bailed it. (Punkass heckled me all night.)
But he can skeet a lil' bit.
Theme for the night was "Attack the Wall"
I did get the Rock-n-Roll, but the Professor beat me to it, so the F.R.O. was unimpressed. Ass.
Thrasher was pushin' for coping and eventually got it.
Both BS and FS.
Professor Jason FS
Professor Jason BS
I dub the Squirrelly Joe. (He rides super loose trucks.)
Radly can smith grind, in case you were wonderin'.
One of the 'new kids' bustin' a boneless. (post a comment if ya know his name)
If ya got a big deck, eventually everyone will want to be on it.
Great session skaters! See ya next week.

The rumor of the Concretins death was slightly exaggerated.
