***July Thirty First Two Thousand and Seventeen***



A rough visual approximation of what it's like to take a baby on vacation to Maine.

It took me a couple of months to get around to this Pyramid Country vid - I blame all the short videos and single parts,
it's hard for me to commit to anything over 10-15 minutes these days.  This one is worth it though...really feeling the
work Tyler Franz is doing, and any Ryan Lay footage is good footage.  Note to all skate video creators: if you're
going to insist on lofi filming equipment, at least do us the favor of putting everyone's footage in it's own distinct part
so we can tell who the hell is doing what.  Actually, that just applies to everyone, regardless of footage fidelity.  

I'm not sure I ever thoght the world needed another Brandon Westgate, but here comes Mason Silva to show me that
you can never have too many dudes who skate this fast and pop this high.  He turned pro with this "Red Balloon" part,
and it's incredibly well deserved.  

Spent most of my website time this month editing and creating five entries in the photo journal from our trip to Maine.
It was a fun trip.  Going on vacations is a pretty great thing to do, right?

No show reviews...Hopscotch looms large a little over a month from now though.  Did post a couple of music reviews.  
The new Spiral Stairs is great.

"Everybody panic! Oh my God, there's a bear loose in the coliseum! There will be no refunds! Your refund will be
escaping this deathtrap with your life! If you have a small child, use it as a shield! They love the tender meat!"

Badly Drawn Boy - A Minor Incident.  A couple of BDB songs from the "About A Boy" soundtrack.  At the time I
always thought he was a little overrated, but then he dropped out of sight so fast he's probably underrated now.  
Something To Talk About

Baroness - Shock Me.  I've listened to the 2015 album "Purple" a shit tom over the last couple of months...both mel-
odic and heavy, a combination that rarely works but this is one of those exceptions.  
Try To Disappear

Brad Pot - Dipped in Batter.  Pretty straight-forward australian punk, who have been dominating the world at this
genre for the better part of a decade.  Possibly the best part though is Itunes listed the artist name as Brad A. Potts.  
Hit Me

Nick Drake - Pink Moon.  Stop me if you've heard this one before...

Perfume Genius - Longpig.  PG's second album "Put Your Back N 2 It" is still his masterpiece, but the other slabs
have good songs too.  
No Good

Prince Buster - Al Capone.  Ska classics, as occasionally featured on beer commercials aimed at white fratters.  
Madness
Take It Easy

Wu-Tang Clan - Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'.  I'm pretty sure these songs require no blurb.  I will say that as a
middle aged white dude, I have no idea how to appropriately handle writing the name of the last song - add asterisks?
Remove it entirely? Leave it listed as the Wu intended?  I went with the last option, but I'm not comfortable with it.  
Protect Ya Neck
Shame On A Nigga
