Title: SF Roomies, the final chapter
Text: The last of it. Check out times at 11.
THE SONG: Victory, Puff Daddy and The Family
Rickk has surpassed Mikey’s remarkable ability to look at a situation from 83 different disaster angles.
I hope this means he’s going to move back to the UK.
There are no “strange new worlds” out there, NASA. Cut the shit. You guys are floating around in space singing Bowie covers. In the words of my brother Kevin, “you want to stop fuckin’ around out there”.
Searcy, are you at Disneyland? That’s a good habit.
THE SONG: Delusional, Quicksand
I think sometimes, it’s safe to judge a book by it’s cover. And sometimes it’s OK to judge the two books related to the main fucking weird book.
You might as well face it, you’re addicted to love.
NASA, you’re blowing it.
THE SONG: Ho Hey, The Lumineers
It says you should look at it with dark sunglasses but all punkers know, you just look right at that thing bare eyeballed!
Searcy smokes a lot of cigarettes. You get the patch, here at Crailtap we do “the subtle vibe”.
It’s been a long time since I added a new “feature” to this “column”. But starting today we introduce FUCKER ALERT. Just an average shout out to anyone being a fucker.
THE SONG: Home, Wooden Ships
Ben, what’s up with yer boy?
After watching day time TV with the flu for three days I realized how stupid it would be to date a vampire. They’re fucking unpredictable. Why are people so into them?
I wonder how the core market is in the robotic insect industry or if they are all malled out, too. Hmmm.
THE SONG: Sleepy Sun, Freedom Line
You assholes that thought you were going to get stuck eating “the fake ones” the rest of your life can exhale now. Blubberstain!
If we could just get the Spurs and Clippers eliminated from these playoffs, I’m ready to watch! Haven’t seen a more douchey season close out since Bynum took his jersey off last year. Dwightmare!
THE SONG: She Thinks I Still Care, George Jones
As usual, goats doing what man can not.
Fuck, does this mean I won’t be able to stay four nights at the Parker for $20 less then usual? Lame.
Give or take 1000 degrees. FUCK OUTTA HERE, Science.
Seriously, Spurs, you got this.
THE SONG: The Unknown, Asteroid #4
Can we fucking move on? There is definitely some other shit we don’t understand. FOH.
In an interview today, I said “like” three times. Not in the form, “We like to do things this way…” more in this form, “we’re like, looking for someone…”. Sorry Mom and Arthur and Bird. The silver lining? We, like, fully hired her.
Scoochy J cried when he was watching the movie, Pitch Perfect. Wait, was it that or The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Either way, he cried a lot on that flight. If the flight was 16 hours, he cried for 12 of them.
Celtics Ben refers to general population in the world as “the wild”. There’s that one huge green reason to not like this guy but he sure knows how to distract me.
THE SONG: And at the Beginning, Asobi Seksu
Isn’t it insane that the hashtag #totesannoying is #totesannoying?
You got this, Spurs.
So maybe you keep your gun rights but you have to only travel on horse back when using your gun….like back when your rights were written? FOH.
I wish I had time to study baby sea turtles. That’s not my first wish, it’s WORLD PEACE, obvs.
THE SONG: Other People, Beach House
No talk about the sun or other planets today. Happy Earth Day, Motherfuckers!
Yesterday I hiked with Spike in flip flops and then when my feet were disgusting, I went to a foot massage place. I know, I know, it’s like Reda blurted out to me at Buscemi’s wedding, I was supposed to make these guys more like me, not become more like them. But I did give the lady with the bucket of dirty water at the foot massage place an $11 tip.
In all fairness to Magic Johnson, he did predict “Lakers in 5 games” before Kobe was hurt. I think it’s safe to say “Spurs Sweep”.
You haven’t won a banner to put up so there’s no need to worry about this yet.
THE SONG: Apocalypse Dreams, Tame Impala
Oh, you don’t have red wine and aged scotch at your board meetings? Call your dad, that’s what we did.
Rickk likes to say “there’s no way that’s possible” when he doesn’t like what you’re telling him. He needs to watch Minority Report a few times. Hello? That shit was all possible.
When you’re given “the exclusive” try and not act like an asshole.
Key word, “could”. Remember when I liked the solar system?
THE SONG: I’m Writing a Novel, Father John Misty
Dear Craig, have fun in Korea. Peace Out. LITERALLY.
THE SONG: Let’s Go, Matt and Kim
Follow @crailringer, going to get to 10,000 followers by Sunday.
Not only is this story about the sun but I also cover anything “Flare” related.
How does the saying go…”Guns don’t kill people, college kids aren’t people…”? You people are NUTS.
THE SONG: Runnin’ With The Devil, Van Halen
What next? I’m cheering on Paul Pierce? Felt like Ben to neglect this column so badly. Apologies.
This is where me and “My Click” part ways. Go ahead and help yourself to my portions of food, Scott and Craig. I’ll be here watching the news.
Setting goals for 2020? Seriously, Taco Bell, even WE think that’s funny.
THE SONG: I Heard You Looking, Yo La Tengo
NASA should start a band called, “Um, we don’t really know“. Fucking annoying goofs, find something definite and definitely tell us.
Craigers, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is your friend Tiffany is now MY friend Tiffany. The bad news is we thought you had a better sense of humor.
Today in a meeting we had our first moment of The Baltrotsky’s colliding. Warmly remembered as “Hershel’s Greatest Miss”. Love you two.
If you have two patents about to blow up and you just invented two hot sauces and can’t work full time because the phone could ring at any moment and “bam, things change”, how about you stay the fuck out of my office to interview for a warehouse position? And “IT bartender protector dude” don’t write to The Mez and stand up for inventors. He’s not my boss. Spike’s dad is.
If you yearn for an exhibition of three dudes that wanna be cool but don’t want you to know that, follow @crailringer. 185 people can’t be wrong.
THE SONG: Becuz, Sonic Youth
Bird, the good news is you never wanted to be a coach.
OK, so a 2 billion dollar cosmic ray detector caught a hint of dark matter? You spend 2 billion dollars, you better seriously blow minds. You’re at maximum kook status.
Sorry Canada but you wanted to be friends with us. Now you get drug into this crazy mo-fo’s shit. You guys bring the ginger beer, we’ll bring the vodka. And it goes without saying but, you guys bring the weed.
THE SONG: Writing Letters, Tsunami
Rickk tried to say yesterday that he was going to start an Instagram of just me and see how I liked it. I think he quickly remembered who makes the cookies around this place.
Since Rickk is very set on not blaming his ongoing battle with the flu to the amount of Irish Car Bombs he does with his boyfriend, I am going to be offering him some other suggestions of stories to tell….
Is that all Nasa does? Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda? Fucking find a star or planet or transport someone somewhere and Instagram that shit.
THE SONG: One Time, Justin Bieber
Every Friday is Good Friday when you don’t have to work Saturday. My mom use to say that at church, it was funnier then. Sorry for trying to be funny. This column is known for being not funny.
When Spike leaves a phone message asking for advice he says at the end, “I already have my mind made up but call me back anyway”. Yeah, that’s called “I can call all the shots but I am not 100% sure of my shot calling”. Which is totally different then what Mikey does which is called “I can’t call any shots until I run them by 22% of everyone closest to me”. It’s a recipe for success if you look closely at the ingredients.
Cool, another blogger that writes about things that no one cares about. Good to know it’s not just me.
Follow me @crailringer for an in depth look at glitter, glamour and goofs!
THE SONG: I Don’t Wanna Hear It, Minor Threat
You want an update? Mikey’s in the Bahamas, Spike is in NY and Rickk has the flu. Rickk’s flu is not from drinking. Spike is not back in NY for good. He just hasn’t decided which coast is “in” so he’s keeping it up in the air.
And speaking of Spike, his dad says “fuck” a lot. And he calls Crailtap, “the site thingy bloggy shitty”. Better name then we came up with but he wasn’t our boss yet.
If an employee opted out of the Lottery pool here at Crailtap, you might not read this article in the news. Just sayin’….
Follow me on Instagram for riveting photos of your three favorite socialites. @crailringer
THE SONG: Golden Brown, The Stranglers
Can I write this column in ten minutes? For anyone that checks it, Yes I can.
I’m going to let Chick get married. And I’m letting him marry a gay goat just to further prove you fucks need to mind your own business. You lose. Again.
And with that, this column is D-U-N!
THE SONG: Blue Ocean Floor, Justin Timberlake
If you can’t figure out how to get your Pandora to run through your Apple TV, don’t wait until Mikey’s at the Tampa Pro. He has some sort of Irish Car Bomb accent that is really hard to understand.
I don’t think I want a goat anymore. (Reverse psychology…..shhhh).
Follow me @crailringer if you want to see what all the cool kids aren’t doing.
Craigers is on an exotic jaunt through the US and can’t be stopped. Where next, Tempe?
THE SONG: No One Is A Loser, The Sugarland Gang
Tampa Tampa Tampa.
Spike. Spike. Spike.
Selfie. Selfie. Selfie.
THE SONG: Many Shades of Black, The Raconteurs
It turns out the angry bartender is not even a bartender. He’s an IT person that feels like he needs to fight the good fight for bartenders. The bottom line is that our production person can’t fix your server, you can’t make a bloody Mary and the guy who sent his resume in response to an ad for “NO LESS THEN THREE YEARS IN CLOTHING PRODUCTION” can’t work here.
With Mikey helping more with the marketing of the brands, stay tuned for a Tila Tequila Crail Couch.
Jesus wouldn’t take a “selfie”. #YOLO
We’re sort of like Google in that you can bring your dog to work. The part where we’re not like Google is where we turned the kitchen into an office.
THE SONG: Day In, Day Out, XTC
If you ever feel like you are not getting enough Rickk, Mike and Spike, follow me on Instagram @crailringer
The Mez opens all my hate mail so he let me know that some angry bartender didn’t like that I bagged on the bartender that sent his resume for our production position that is open. Just to be fair, I doubt the production person we hire will be able to whip up a tequila sunrise anywhere close to the quality of what you do. And I doubt the person that owns your bar wants to take the time to teach him.
And just to be more fair, this column is about goats, the sun, two professional skaters, a celebrated director, a tough guy, a dude that was busted at the river, a used car salesman and a few other things. Maybe write your senator or the local paper or anything that has at least 2% substance.
Last night The Lakers won without Kobe. Not sure what that means but I need filler. I’m not like Ben, I can’t just let this column sit here and not breathe.
It feels like her campaign to show us how incredibly stupid she is, is really going full court press.
THE SONG: Cry Me a River, Justin Timberlake
If you read an ad for a production coordinator and it says “3-4 YEARS EXPERIENCE A MUST” maybe don’t include “I can’t think of a better candidate for this job” on your cover letter if you’ve only bar tended. I have nothing against bar tending but I have been a patron enough times to know, you fuckers aren’t prepping tech packs.
I attribute this to the new Pope. God listened closely this week.
My office has a small bathroom and Rickk did me the favor yesterday of taking a huge dump after lunch. It truly made the rest of the day in my office so great. I’m currently blaming it on the Skateboard Mag because they took him to lunch. I know, it seems like I should blame Rickk but you didn’t hear? Yeah, he and Mikey can’t do anything wrong. It’s pretty cool.
THE SONG: Free Lunch, Annie In The Water
Goats are the last punkers left on earth. Period. Enjoy poser-hood, people.
Nobody cares. I see stars every night. You guys aren’t blowing minds anymore.
THE SONG: Our Deal, Best Coast
Craig’s keen ability to spot the right resume is not his keenest ability.
Go Kings. That’s right. I can’t take Dwight playing like he’s 5’3″ with oil covered hands. I clearly can’t cheer on the Anaheim Clippers so hockey it is. Tough Guy and River, “we” got this. Good game last night.
Mikey thinks we should make tampons. We all have our ideas for growth.
THE SONG: Empty Lot, Banner Pilot
Smyth is moving in on my baking bonanza. Seriously Sam, I’ll put a vending machine with all high end items in right next to that all processed snack computer you have in the warehouse. Don’t fuck around.
Yesterday while Mikey drank tequila and mimosa’s, I went to spin class, baked cookies and took a hot yoga class. He had more fun, I feel pretty much the same. Victory Carroll.
Rickk has had the flu for about three months. It’s a blast.
Another NASA discovery of something that “might” exist or no longer does. You’re boring me, NASA.
THE SONG: Sunset, The Babies
Social Media to show you’re winning as an individual is proof you’re losing. Fun fact.
Congratulations to everyone on Girl and Chocolate, everyone behind the scenes, the cameras and especially Baby B! Pretty Sweet night for all of you last night!
Lazy people like free money. It’s been that way since the dawn of time. Well, no, I guess they didn’t have money then. But lazy people then probably wanted free dinosaur eggs.
I have a feeling when I resign, I am not leaving in a white helicopter. That’s cool, I had way more fun then he did.
THE SONG: I’m Different, 2 Chainz
“You can’t try and get all dreamy and take the high road with motherfukcers that dwell on the low road…”. That’s how to get my attention, the proper use of the word “motherfuckers”.
WHAT? Fake goods coming out of China? Get the fuck out of here!
THE SONG: Happy Birthday, Stevie Wonder
For some reason, Mikey is being a complete dick. Maybe that’s in style, he is at the Magic show right now so clearly he knows the trends.
I f’ing love when there is a successful jewel theft! 50 million in less then three minutes….good work, dudes!
Smaller then Mercury but bigger then your brain, dumbass.
This shit is scandalous in the goat world.
We’ve had several discussions about how Level 1 here at Crail West could kick ass on Level 2 but Walsh sealed that even being open for debate on Friday night. Yeah, Jamie!
I’m telling you, don’t be on the late train. Get into goats!
Craig, tell your people to just let Russia have it’s shine for a moment. Floridians….
THE SONG: As Long As You Follow, Fleetwood Mac
Follow my friend at @crailringer. We’re a lot alike so you can gauge your love/hate off of that fact.
Happy Birthday, Thiebaud. As my mother told me one night when I was leaving for the prom, “one bad decision can change all of our lives”. I think you know what she meant and I know you know what I mean.
THE SONG: On Reflection, Appleseed Cast
Much like Rickk Howard, goats don’t like cops either.
Each day I hate outer space just a tiny bit more then the day before.
No T and A, CBS, then you don’t get Mikey as a viewer.
THE SONG: Chinese Embassy, Alberto Iglesias
The good news is, you won’t have an anxiety attack watching him not rebound and contesting every call. Soft fucker.
One more report about space or Mars or the sun with the word “might” or “maybe” in it and I’m going to be over it. That’s right, I’m almost over space.
I guess you can’t have iPhones in Indonesia?
THE SONG: Who Are You, The Who
Dude’s only offering a $300 reward….he doesn’t love his goats as much as he says he does.
Ha Ha, Fat ass!
Today I was in a meeting with Rick, Mike, Sam, The Mez, Jenkins, Hersh, Callaway and Carnalag and Mikey fell asleep, sort of, twice. Well, he just yawned like a bear that was waking up from a four month nap. It didn’t annoy me, why?
THE SONG: The Shadow Of Love, The Damned
Rickk went to get another root canal. He’s so competitive. Chill out, Rickk, there is no way you’re catching up to me. I have four real teeth left, just stick to what you know.
The Gav called me yesterday and he said, “let me call you right back, it’s _________________”. And he just never called back. And you know what the funny part is? I didn’t have anything left to talk to him about.
The Turnover’s are 2 for 2. That would be about a 68% better winning record then MY Los Angeles Lakers. Go Burbank.
Spike does a way better chick voice then this guy. Seriously.
Looks like he’s going to be OK, Mikey. Don’t stress.
I also want a baby lamb. I want a goat, panda, whale and a lamb.
Do Scoochy J and Craig seem like the type of guys that would eat an endangered species? I didn’t think so either.
A friendly reminder that I truly should not complain about Rickk, Mike or Spike.
Wait, so he mutilated three goats and he gets out on $10,000 bail? That’s good thinking, if he isn’t afraid to mutilate goats, I am sure we don’t have to worry about his mental illness turning into some kind of shooting spree. You’re a dick, Tanner. Mental or not.
I think the real reason is because The Lakers are on a two game winning streak.
I’m trying to get an internship for this gig. I don’t really care about the scrap metal, you know me, just trying to get into outer space. Seems more likely then Rickk or Mikey buying me a goat.
You seem normal.
Gasol was in practice today which means he might play tonight which also means we might lose tonight. When I say “we”, I mean me and Steve Nash.
In the event you were asking yourself, “can cultural influences make the market any sketchier“.
I found out today that if someone is more pissed off at you then you are at them, you can just let them carry the load of anger. Thanks Dave and Owen, you guys are f’ing awesome!
This is great news! This means that Honey Boo Boo will probably have a baby and put that baby in pageants and we’ll just end up being a nation of fat losers. Wait a minute….
I’m going to get our wood shop to make this. Then I’ll get a goat. And then go to the moon and some other shit.
What? Who’d they tease? I’m confused.
We’re about to start setting up sensitivity training so enjoy this column while it lasts. And if you already hate it, I think it should be gone soon.
Slaussage sat in the Laker seats last night and we won but I think it really had to do with the fact that at some point, we had to win at least one game out of twelve.
When he was still normal. Weird.
More goat abuse. The world has not shortage of motherfuckers.
“How can you not believe in this team? This team is built to win. It’s a very, very solid team”
I think it’s just about time to not ask that question, “Can this get any worse” about The Lakers. Let’s just watch and wonder. And take deep breaths and appreciate all that couch time we won’t regret during the playoffs.
Last night Spike and I agreed he was not “corpo”. I was mostly agreeing so I could get out of my car and deal with the nice man repairing my heater. Jonze, call me, I’m kidding!
This guy last night was telling me about the NHL lock out being over and then he repeated some quote from Wayne Gretzky about escaping to where the puck is going to be and not where it’s been and the whole time he was talking I was trying to remember if I had Skittles in my glove box.
Are American telescopes any better then European telescopes? These photos look like I took them from earth. This astroid is going to be blazing by earth again in 23 years so might as well just put off checking it out until then if you’re busy.
When I say “we”, I mean me.
Right when things were so good between Eldy and I, he posted a Selfie. It’s fine, Justin, I am sure cool friends are totally easy to find.
Wow, I’m so curious what they said to each other. NOT.
Craig and Scoochy J, let me know what color you want for the flight. You’re welcome.
See that tiny guy on that huge wave? That’s not Spike.
Rickk and Justin car pooled to the Burbank airport to make up for the fuel that Mikey pushed into the atmosphere from a private jet. Go big or look normal.
I like my hands nice and warm when I throw air balls.
Most of the time, in order of worry, it goes: Rickk first, then Mikey, then Spike. Mikey has taken the first spot on a Beauty and The Beast Tour as well as a few New Year’s Eves but Rickk holds steady in that spot with his keen ability to not know his own strength.
But today when Spike texted me he was “eating and drinking and surging” a lot, he took that spot. “Surging”? What is that some sort of new director energy yoga? What the fuck? Lucky I am sharp enough to realize he wasn’t with his assistant so he can’t spell check his texts. He meant “surfing”. Watch out for Rickk. Jonze is fine.
If you ever want a good laugh, talk to Rickk about how he’s “up” when it comes to gambling. The calculations are nothing short of hysterical.
Mikey, tonight when the game is on, your team is in red and blue. The guy that looks like the chick from the Wendy’s logo on steroids, he’s your guy. You’re welcome.
Um, I think it’s time to take them off the f’ing pentagram. They’re recycling trees. Recognize already, people!
I was with her biggest fan all weekend and I can tell you, she truly isn’t facing much backlash.
2012 ended with the sad realization that after all those years of popping bottles, Mikey can not open champagne. Scott Johnston’s wife was kind enough to show him how to not spill 30% of every bottle on the floor. Either way, it was a blast.
Very last post of 2012 for this column. As with every year, the more things change; did some serious Girl spring cleaning, finally one of our parents had to step in and run this place with us, Smyth got that neck tat, Mikey joined Rickk and Spike in the directors role, Eti and Jenkins have worked here long enough to bring in a second generation, Crail East was born, Callaway realized The South Bay IS where it’s at, River got hitched, we’re finally in double digits for female employees and we’re about to begin decade two of this game.
The more things stay the same; my office needs a window, The Mez and Rickk still can’t control their bowels, the Lakai office looks like it’s from another building, we didn’t win every award Rickk thought we deserved, we called the police twice, the world didn’t end, I learned my lesson the hard way, Bird said the perfect thing at the perfectly wrong time, Jenkins had a question for an employee that no longer worked here, softball game and every other gathering was a fucking blast, even the winter loves the sun and goats are still gods gift to us.
Cheers to everyone on a Pretty Sweet year, and I mean everyone, we’re blessed beyond any of our wildest dreams.
you’re Canadian, today is truly not a holiday.
At Whole Foods about an hour ago, a gentleman told me my driving sucks, I should use my blinker and he should call the “fucking cops”. Looks like Santa didn’t know where to drop the packages marked “motherfukcer” off to. Dick!
We’re on catalog deadline and Rickk went and ate at Monk’s. Everyone knows you don’t eat at Monk’s unless you have time to have diarrhea for two days. Rookie move, Core.
Eldy’s been banned from the Laker season seats. All the signs are starting to appear that the world IS ending. Don’t worry, I will blog from heaven.
Happy Holidays. Let the games begin.
Spike’s dad can call us here at Girl and tell us we’re not doing shit right. And then you have to send him reporting and summaries of how you are going to fix your actions.
That was a fun twenty year run of doing what we wanted. Seriously, super fun.
Not trying to get a baby whale anymore. Did some research and they get big and pissed off in captivity and then kill you. I don’t need those kinds of problems.
Earlier I was speaking with my sister and she said, “wouldn’t the world have already ended in Australia” and I had to explain the time difference and that it won’t end for them until tomorrow. DUH.
This type of stuff in a “Selfie” is so upsetting. Come on, close the shower curtain and make a sick back drop. It’s a full time job, trying to get this part of the population to stop making us look like our heads are up our asses.
Heart goes out to you, folks. Doesn’t really get much more horrible then this.
Monday is our annual Holiday Dinner and I think I’m doing the playlist. Hope you like your Mary G Blige sprinkled with a little Willie Nelson. Full “FAIL” but the upside is no one will sleep on this task next year.
And “pre-party” is the new “after party” which I think means we’re starting this weekend.
Oh, that’s your idea of “making shit happen”? Cool, take care.
Now I want a baby whale, too. I have to work the logistics out with the gallons of water in my pool and the budget for bamboo for my baby panda but I think this is going to work. I feel really good about this.
Dear Rickk, Mikey, Spike and Santa, these goats I’ve wanted for the last ten years are $100 max. Not directed to any particular one of you in any particular order but that’s less then three hands of poker, a Commes De Garcon wool jacket and two privates in pilates. When I buy it on my own, don’t run around saying “we” got a goat at Crailtap.
Eldy, I’m speaking in code of course but are we out of weed in the one special weed jar? You know what I mean?
Bird, we blew it on our 12/12/12 tats because I heard from a friend that the cool kids got them at 12:12 PM. If I can’t rely on you for this type of shit, what can I rely on you for? Jesus.
R.I.P dude, you were awesome!
Mommy’s, don’t let your babies grow up to be babies.
Already turned in my “time off” form since I will have to stay up all night for this. You’d think meteor showers would be less like the cable company and not give you a twelve hour window to have to wait around.
For the love of God, they’re producing something that makes caramel! Take them off the damn pentagram, weird metal freaks!
Today I was in on a meeting where Meza tried to take Mikey’s role in our lives. Meza, there’s only room for one guy with no answers and all worst case scenario’s. Seriously.
I just found out that those photos that (mostly) chicks take of themselves with their own camera with their arm extended are called “Selfie’s”. I love to hate the second hand embarrassment those give me, the more “sexy” and “serious” the facial expression, the more I like the cringe. Don’t stop, ladies. Seriously.
Bookmark SPACE.COM because you won’t always have me to rely on. Seriously.
Spike is going on secret getaways, that when asked, he simply says, “I’ll tell you about it when I see you”. Suspicious and sketchy. Add those to your reel, Adam.
In an effort to have us continue to take him very serious, Craig is taking Thursday and Friday off to go to a skate reunion in Florida.
Oh no…what if it turns out that Twilight is real? Fuck, this has been a crazy year.
What? And this? What other crazy fucking out of left field thing could blow our mind?
He should sit out every Tuesday. And weekends. And when we play teams in the West.
Goats don’t get aggressive and chase you for no reason. Tell your kids to stop lying, Texas.
Maybe the Mayan calendar will take only the people that believe it? That seems cool. And the people that think it has even the slightest bit of relevance all get shipped to an island? Then they can make an army of “dumb”. Cool, make it happen.
Larson hates that this ever left his mouth, but he did leave here to “spread his wings”. Larson, are they spread? I’m just checking, dude, you know we have need to know if they are or not.

It’s really difficult to express emotions in writing. We lost a good human being over the weekend. His life was taken by a drunk driver as he skated home in the bike lane. Just like that, a vibrant human being who touched a lot of lives was taken from us. My heart is heavy for his friends and family. Reggie worked here at Girl for a while and was always a good person to be around. A Nice dude with a good chuckle. You will truly be missed Reggie Destin. I hope you’re in a much better place now. Rest in Peace.

It’s a brand new 2012 and I’ve managed to start it off with… nothing special. Hell, almost nothing at all. I tried thinking of something neat to do but the only thing I came up with was to write the column in Japanese characters. But I don’t know Japanese. Then I thought, a contest! But I’m so uninspired I can’t even think of a contest.
That’s it! Have a contest where the winner is the person who comes up with the best contest idea! Two in one, sorta. So that’s what I’m doing to start of the 2012.
Email me with your BEST IDEA FOR A CONTEST and we’ll go ahead and start this BEST IDEA FOR A CONTEST CONTEST. I’ll announce the deadline and prize tomorrow.

The best of the Godfather of skate zines is now available under one cover. Skate Fate was published for 10 years by Garry S. Davis and it was always filled with good material — it was a truly authentic window into skateboarding from ’81 to ’91. I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Go get it.
