OK, I just can’t resist this one.

Myspace surveys are pretty lame in general, and I vowed to never post a bulletin with a survey in it.
This one, however, I thought was cool for whatever reason. I stole it from Josh “White Shadow” Lewis, whose answers were particularly funny (poignant? I think so). So here we go.

1.You’re infected. Your top 8 has the cure. One must die. Who?
Off to a bad start.

2. If alcohol were banned, what would your reaction be?
The government can’t surprise me with bad decisions anymore.

3.Your CD collection is repossessed. But you may keep one. Which?
Either Led Zeppelin “How The West Was Won,” or Beatles “Revolver.” Clutch decision.

4. Do you believe world peace is possible?
If religion is abolished? Maybe.

5. I’m a genie. Name your wish….
Infinite wishes, stupid genie. Next time make some conditions.

6. Name two things about the opposite sex that automatically turns you off:
Bro-ness and Ho-ness.

7. Name two things about the opposite sex that automatically turns you on.
Babe-ness and Intelligent-ness.

8. Speaking of same sex, what did you think about Brokeback Mountain?
Hellz yeah, I am the Liberal Elite.

9. What are you obsessive about?
Organizing my iTunes.

10. Leather face is in the kitchen. Will you fight to victory, or hide from him?
Leatherface is one word, fuckwad. Even I know that. But fight or flight depends on the weapons on hand. Homeboy obviously rocks a chainsaw, so I’d need some artillery at my disposal, or at least a spear (of course, I’m strapped with a blade). I would at least hold that bitch off until my crew could escape.

11. Do you feel people underestimate you?
If not, then my image needs adjustment.

12. When you’re in a bad mood, what will always put you in a better mood?

13. Honestly, do you talk about myspace in real life?
Dude, I live in Southern California. What else is there to talk about?

14. Have you ever met anyone off the internet?
This is a poorly structured question, therefore I refuse to answer it.

15. What do you hope to have accomplished by the end of this year?
Not being broke.

16. Do you believe minimum wage should be raised?
I’m a Libertarian Socialist. Guess.

17. If someone at a bar gives you “the look” how do you respond to it?
The look like, “Let’s brawl,” or the look like, “Let’s hook it?” Either way, a blade is drawn.

18. Do you have any really crazy relatives?
I met some haggard relatives at a family reunion, like, forever ago, but nothing too serious.

19. Pretend you’re 15 deep in beers. Describe what you would be doing?
Probably winning a bet for a bunch of dough. And it would have to be a bunch.

20. People get sad. Are you the one they turn to?
With one or 2 exceptions, no.

21. Does everyone in your life know the real you?
I am a figment of my own delusion.

22. What is the most ridiculous fear you have?
Heights and African Death Squad Militias.

23. Do you know anyone in Prison?
In the prison of society, yes.

24. Have you ever logged on in a boyfriend/girlfriend/crush’s name?
Not necessary.

25. When is the last time you ate Peanut butter and jelly?
Sometime within the last month. Creamy+ my beloved raspberry jam= damn goodness.

26. When did you last have a home cooked meal?
Coffee this morning.

27. Have you ever gotten naked at a party?
Any time I’m naked is a party.

28. Name someone you miss.

29. Are you named after a grandparent?
Nope. A famous and honorable Canadian bull rider.

30. Who would you want to fight?
He who provoketh my ire.

31. Do you throw up gang signs?
The only gang sign necessary is “The Knife.”

32. Have you ever broken a rib?
Ribs of Steel.

33. Would you rather be a girl or a guy?
Penises are super gross, so maybe the optimal choice would be lesbianism. It combines my love for the female form with my general dislike of the male sex organ.

34. What are your plans for tomorrow?
Making the rounds in Paso.

35. Boyfriend/Girlfriend?
If this means “Do You Have A Boyfriend/Girlfriend,” then no, I don’t not have a “Boyfriend/Girlfriend.” I have a girlfriend, however.

36. Are you mad at anyone right now?
The Republican destroyers of reason.

37. What are you wearing right now?
Levis and a t-shirt (incidentally, the same answer as Josh).

39. Would you ever work for the border patrol?
I could undermine the man from the inside, I suppose.

40. Who do you talk to the most everyday?
This total babe I live with.

41.What are you feeling right now?
Slight guilt for how long this shit is taking.

My mind is a glorified porn collection.

44. Have you ever been in an interracial relationship?
Race is irrelevant.

45. Is your birthday on a holiday?
Sean Combs Day.

55. Did or do you think your childhood dreams will come true?

56. Is there a certain someone on your mind right now?
Shane, whom I’m am chatting with on AIM, at the moment.

For Whatever Reason, Skateboarding.

I’ve been occupying my internet time these days looking at a lot of skateboarding-related stuff. I attribute this, partially at least, to last weekend’s Rob & Big marathon. So, I read a bunch of skate web pages and stuff and got my motivation back. (On a similar note, I also got my artistic inspiration back, thanks to dinner at El Matador- but that’s beside the point.)
And in that vein, here’s some skateboarding related lists:

Top 5 Skate Shoes
1. eS Koston- The second version, with the air soles. So comfy, durable, and readily available in vegan style. Not too thick of a sole or tongue.
2. Vans Slips- Always there for me.
3. Vans Half Cabs- Super ugly (and leathery), but gnar tough, and I used to think they made me skate better.
4. Airwalk Jim- From back when Airwalk was gnar (94-95 ish). Simple and timeless. I prefer mine with a bunch of Shoo Goo (Paso Represent!) on the ollie patch. [Note: I had both blue and maroon flavors. Ahhh, for those simpler times…]
5. Emerica Templeton- Ugly and kinda fat. But durable as hell and vegan, and it’s Ed Fucking Templeton’s shoe.

Top 5 Skate Shops
1. Alliance
2. Alliance
3. Alliance
4. Surfside [Note: It’s 2 blocks from my house, for god’s sake.]
5. Active [Note: Only, and I mean only because they have cheap wheels.]

Top 5 Tricks on the Paso Skatepark Wedge Bank [Note: I’m really a pretty terrible skateboarder, but I feel like a cool dude when I do my silly little tricks on this silly little section of our park.]
1. Fakie 50-50 to revert
2. B/S 5-0 off the end
3. F/S 5-0 revert
4. F/S disaster [Note: Hiiiiiiyooooo!]
5. 50-50 kickflip 50-50 blah blah blah

Top 5 Skate Injuries
1. Permanent wrist injury- Vans Park, right before Thanksgiving 2004.
2. Right ankle sprain- Attempted b/s noseslide on some ghetto ass funbox at a pre-park Paso bash. Out for 3 months. The beginning of the decline of my skating days.
3. Left ankle sprain- First skate after above. Bailed manual pad. Thought that shit was broken. Out 3 more months. Sealing of the deal for my transition from “Skateboarder” to “Guy Who Owns a Skateboard.”
4. Big bank First Blood- 3rd person to skate the Paso Park, first to do so with super loose trucks. Also first to publicly embarrass himself there. “First Blood!” is what Jeremy yelled as I hit the flat.
5. Constant shinners- Always. From the day I got my first shred to 2 days ago. My shins are bumpy as hall. Memories of going to bed on late summer nights with bloody shins.

Top 5 Skate Companies
1. Toy Machine
2. Consolidated
3. Girl
4. Scarecrow
5. Zero- Until all that cross bullshit.

Top 5 Skateboarders
1. Ed Templeton
2. Rowley
3. Koston
4. Some dude that I forget at the moment.
5. Jamie Thomas- See #5 above.

Top 5 Skate Vids
1. Welcome To Hell
2. Consolidated- #1
3. Zero- Thrill of It All
4. Landspeed
5. Girl- Yeah Right!

Top 5 Ghetto Paso Skatespots
1. Wal Mart Curb- Default because it’s hidden and never disturbed.
2. Meat Factory! Old school. Only a few still remember.
3. Wal Mart McDonalds- It smelled bad, but had a fun gap and manual pads.
4. Paso High- Hiding from cops on the roof= good times.
5. Pat Butler- I think this place could accommodate like 300 people at a time. It used to be like a party there every Saturday night, and no one cared! Oh, the good ol’ days.

Top 5 Skate Soundtracks
1. Minor Threat
2. Beastie Boys
3. Descendents
4. Adolescents
5. Slayer always works.

I dream of the same.
