Skateboard Museum and skater haters
Went to a museum featuring skateboards the other day. The museum features industrial design such as furniture and electronics but also had a huge room dedicated to skateboards. They also had skateboards in the permanent exhibition that were from that era which was a little weird.
I really liked this plastic desk.
This is the swedish king and queen and our future queen to be, Victoria.
Check out that chair, you can sleep in it, play World of Warcraft, eat, sleep... excellent.
Album covers from the 80´s. That Billy Idol album was the first one I bought, together with a Thomson Twin´s one.
I think I had Europe´s "Final Countdown" already, which I got as a birthday present along with the record player.
My first two cd´s were Dinosaur Jr "Green Mind" and Jane´s Addiction "Ritual De Lo Habitual".
Pretty sure I bought them after watching an Alien Workshop skate video and reading that Ed Templeton likes Jane´s Addiction.
I still have the cd´s somewhere.. saw them in one of my storage units a few years ago.
I remember the cd player I had cost 3000 kroner, which is around $450, and this was in 1990 or something.
Thanks to my dad´s job at the time I had access to a lot of electronic toys, which directly influenced me into becoming a filmmaker.
If I only would have had $4000 to invest in a NTSC (american version) Sony VX-1000 video camera in 1997 I wouldn´t have been filming snowboarding.
98% sure I´d film skating now instead.
Wow, talk about going off on a tangent.. :)
Remember when you actually cared about what graphic a pro had? And that it actually stayed on the shelfs for more than 6 weeks. I do.
Wonder if Chris Gentry tried this one?
I really like this tv. It´s made by AGA, a swedish gas company. Just put a modern lcd screen inside it. Only problem would be to find a squre lcd... screw widescreen.
I heard that 25% of all the worlds cranes are in Dubai, that´s pretty nuts. Someone also told me 25% of the worlds cranes were in China which is pretty nuts too. But isn´t China about 2.000.000.000 times bigger than Dubai?
Still, that´s a lot of cranes.
Here are two on Hisingen.
Been skating at this plaza a lot lately. I think it´s one of the best spots in Sweden. And I just stumbled upon it when I was walking around the city.
If it would have been in Skellefteå there would be 100 kids there all the time.
Here´s a pic of the police talking to some old man about who knows what, not even bothering the skaters, that doesn´t happen in "The Land of The Free".
Here are a few clips with skaters fighting with cops and rent-a-cops:
One This one is sick. Fucking cop! He needs to get severely punished. There´s no need for people like him on this planet.
Four This one is pretty disturbing too. Grown ups messing with 13 year old kids.
Six This dude needs to chill the fuck out too.
Seven Wow, look at this stupid ass tool.
Ten hahaha, take a chill pill you dirt hag, hahahahaha. Hahahahahahahaha.
Eleven this dude wants the skater to go to Iraq and fight for "us". Haha, what´s wrong with these people. "Us", who is that? American citizens, Republicans? Who is "us"? I suggest you learn to speak better english than a 12 year old scandinavian before you start telling kinds to go to war for "us". If "us" is USA I suggest you learn the proper english so the teen skaters you hate so much can understand you.
ThirteenAnother cop who needs to go to a siberian prison.
FourteenThis one is just too funny, a bunch of overweight black kids harassing skinny white skaters. Sad, but funny.
FifteenThis cop tells the skaters "we" are at war. Don´t skate close to the courthouse. Haha. Oh lord.
SixteenAnother cop who needs to chill.
I´m ending this mega post about about skaters being harassed with an old man pissed that he can´ride a skateboard and that he killed germans. Wow
As I was trying to google a pic of Chris Gentry on a rollerblade wheeled skateboard I can across this one legged skater, also names Chris Gentry. Wow.
Check his 30 sec clip out here.
And in case you didn´t check out Og De Souza (no legged skater) in a older post of mine, here it is again. Very inspirational.
This post took a few hours to make, but what the hell. It´s raining outside.
