Mandatory Bloggery- SLAYER, REPENTLESS FAREWELL TOUR, May 10, 2018 San Diego Sports Arena

To say that I'm a fan of music is an understatement....
I like to think that I'm pretty well versed in music. I love all genres that speak to an old soul such as myself. From blues, jazz, classical, R&B, hip hop, disco, rock 'n roll, gangster rap, metal (and all the sub-genres of metal) and even country....I love it all....Except techno or trap-crap music. The stuff kids listen to nowadays just doesn't make sense to me.

But let's forget about all that stuff, 'cuz this is a FUCKING SLAYER blog! Dedicated to the band themselves and the skaters that have skated to their music...
Enjoy!

I guess you could say I was a late bloomer when it comes to SLAYER, the moment I bought a copy of Misled Youth (Zero Skateboards, 1999) and saw Erik Ellington's part, I was fucking hooked. I was just 16 years old.
I immediately went and bought a copy of "South of Heaven" at my local Music Trader and the head banging commenced!
Wade Speyer in "Hot Batch", Powell Peralta Skateboards, 1992.
Mandatory Suicide
XYZ, "Stars and Bars" Slam section, 1995
Gotta love a good old fashioned slam section to some SLAYER.That's how it's done right.
SLAYER for an intro song? You betcha! I used to have the Shorty's Hardwear team video, 1997.
Like a dumbass I traded it to the bub Jimmy Carlin for a copy of "Yeah Right" on VHS. I've regretted it ever since.
Double dose of SLAYER in Scarecrow Wheels "Disturb Not The Sleep Of Death", 1997
I fucking loved this part when I was a young buck. Roof roll-ins? YES PLEASE!
Omar Salazr, Foundation Skateboards "Nervous Breakdown" 1999.
I remember seeing this part at the premiere at Spreckles theater and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
Everything about this one!
Jon Allie, Zero Skateboards, "Dying To Live" 2002.
Ben fucking Gilley! Probably my most viewed video part of a skater that has shredded to SLAYER.
Black Label Skateboards, "Label Kills", 2001.
This video part made me wanna 50-50 everything in sight!
Alex Gall, Transworld Skateboarding "In Bloom", 2002
This put "Trainwreck on a cultish level. Like a flash in the pan, he was gone as quickly as he showed up. I was ready for a neck tattoo at this point. Thankfully, I didn't let mama down.

I know lots of other skaters have shredded to SLAYER, but these are the parts that run on repeat in my brain. Childhood memories. That kinda stuff.
Anyways, this is supposed to be about the "Repentless" tour, right?
Cheers to the bub Jason! 
Little side story here, Jason and I were waiting in line for beer and a long ahired Mexican-hessian fan screamed "SLAAAAYYYYEEEERRRRR!" So I felt obligated to scream it back. He then told me that he'd been screaming the aformentioned all night and I was the first one to scream back! He was so hyped he bought us each a beer! Hyped! I felt the need to hook the bub up with a mini bottle of vodka I had stored in my sock. When I handed it to him I said, "Here bub, for better hallway vision." Before he even knew what it was, his eyes lit up and he said "Is this cocaine!?!?" I just laughed and said "Nah, it's vodka." Then we parted ways. All this fun and I hadn't even gotten in the pit yet!
Screams from the pit...
REIGN IN BLOOD!
Mandatory Suicide from the pit. Run with my brothers in arms. Nothing could stop us.
BEN FUCKING GILLEY!
With a heavy heart, I say goodbye to SLAYER. You will forever be reigning blood in my heart.

Mandatory Bloggery- Shred Day w/ DHodge at Len Moore Skatepark

Go someplace you haven't been in a while.
It'll renew the stoke!
Dipped monty grind on the big a-frame hubba by David Hodge. I'm too friggin' scared to niseslide this that thing!
Respect, bub!
Shitty self portrait. I sure and hairy and ugly!
Chopper life. Love me some ape-hangers!
Len Moore skatepark. Pretty sure this place opened in 2003. Used to be a pay park. Now it's open for free to the public....
But no one really goes here anymore.
Except a few locals.
And a dog! I love dogs! Especially ones shaped like hot dogs!
Big ledges and big flat bars.
I dropped in on this steep hubba....once. At a Osiris demo. It was the day the Osiris video "Subject to Change" premiered. Brockman was here ripping. He was riding Toy Machine boards. Before Jamie Thomas snatched him up for the Zero Army.

Clearly somebody went pro....And I continued to teach kids how to kickflip!
Haaaaaaa!
Place was filled with insane terrain.
Not a very well built park by today's standards...
Noseblunt by David.
This ditch are sure was fun though!
Then we went to a certified piece of suck.
Better than nothing!
I got spots!
Then time for some down time.
And corn dogs!
Smothered in pollo asada!
Beautimous.
"Fuck you!"
"Fuck you!"
Yep, fuck me. And my cholesterol. And my blood pressure.
Hopefully I'll die to eat another day!

My heart goes out to the bub Stu Graham, who's daughter recently passed away due to cancer.
Fuck cancer. I hate cancer. Everybody hates cancer.
All grinded away. The angle grinder does a kick ass job and its alot lighter than a belt sander,
The weight of a belt sander strains my wrist and makes it sore.

Evening hype!
Closest pizza joint to my pad. Golden Hills.

Mandatory Bloggery- Xanarchy, Luigi's Pizzeria, Poker Night and Slamming

Been a few days of no blogging.
Some would say I've been blowing it. I'd say I've been building up content and shredding...
Enjoy!
I love cake.
Stopped by Tower Tattoo Parlor to say hi to the bub Skooter.
He's a rad artist.
Time for a breakfast bowl!
Cheese, bacon, avocado. You know how we do!
All chopped up and ready for consumption.
I saw a bunny at work the other day.
I got spots, baby!
Keep finding rad music on the internet.
Kids these days.... His shirt compelled me to investigate this 'artist'.
Not worth posting. It's a fucking joke. Shitty trap music filled with my beloved bird calls.
Night sesh at City Heights park!
Then to Luigi's for some slices and pints.
I fuggin' love pizza.
And beer.
I'll have on of each, please!
Slices on slices!
Then across the street to Gilley's for a few more pints.
Love this divey pit and the people in it.
Then on the walk home, I picked up a tall can.
Feeding frenzy.
Shout out to the bub Spencer Pratti for hooking me up with all these boards!
My little furry man.
Poker night!
Biscuit was all in.
$100 for 1st place, $20 for 2nd.
All passed out.
Not sure what the ketchup packet was all about.
Sweating out at my favorite bowl.
The fatter I get, the harder gravity pulls me to the earth.
These bubs rule.
Consumption...gluttony....excess.
Supposedly these are 'sins'.
Scootering is the real sin. Throw that thing on the dumper.
