I've been wanting this for a bit.

Since the park opened and I learned how to drop in and grind, I have wanted to get a double pegger in the over-vert part of the bowl. For some reason, I was laying in bed this morning and thinking that today would be a good day to do it, even though I was pretty sore from a pulled muscle in my back and a little hung over. It was just Corey, Tetro and myself and I fired out an attempt that came up sort of intentionally short, because I was essentially taking a bitch run at it, but I wanted to know how much speed I needed to carry. I got it worked out and sent the next try into a pretty perfect grind on the coping, but I landed nose heavy, and sort of bucked myself off the bike. Corey went to get his camera at this point and I wasn't sure if I was gonna try it again, but after doing the math in my head, I figured I could do it. So I did. Thanks to Corey for the picture...I am pretty fucking stoked right now...

Lightroom 2 is awesome.

I may have brought this up before. But it makes developing digital pictures easy and a treat. So I picked some randoms that I had posted up before to see if they were any better with Lightroom than with my limited skills in Photoshop. Ideally, I would do a comparison with the older version, but that sounds a lot like work.

From my trip to Austin last summer...

Scotty and Bobby, two cornerstones of the Knoxville scene...

I am working on getting some shit together for a First Friday in September. If Mica and I pull it off, come see it at Aisle 9, I think.

I am posting this to keep from having to see Larry King's face.

Woof. Dude is on death's doorstep for sure. It's way uncomfortable.

Anyways, I met some dudes for some street riding (I did very little riding...lots of looking) and snapped a few pics using my massively unreliable wireless triggers. Fortunately some new ones are on the way.

Jon 180'd this gap first go. Kinda gnarly as it run up wasn't exactly smooth and flat and the curb at the top was fucking with his head a little.

Dave Williams is still good and is still riding a Specialized frame. Someone should hook this man up.

I did a really shitty job of hiding the flash here, but I am running it anyways because no fucks are given.

More to come, folks.

Tetro Tables in Honor of AMERICA.

Tetro embodies a lot of what makes America great. He's got ratty facial hair, likes fast cars and does good opposite tables over hips that go the wrong way. Seriously, I would punch a baby to have a hip on my side. Check the skinny bitch out!

Billy was more than happy to let me climb into the over vert and pull the plastic bag out of the drain that was causing the foot of standing water in there. Then he threw the bars with a 180. Happy birthday, America.

Compare and contrast...

So, I'd like to know what you think on this one. Same picture, developed differently (obviously) and I am keen to hear some feedback. Mica likes the black and white better, but she also likes mushy corn on the cob. She's nuts.


Stay awesome, everyone.
