I've been checking out Bogus Blog for quite some time now, and I'm continually impressed by what Morgan Maassen shoots. He is an incredibly talented guy who takes impeccable pictures time and time again.

Flake Music

My girlfriend Erica showed me this band earlier last week. It's the lead singer James Mercer from The Shins before he started The Shins as a side project... It's pretty nice stuff if you enjoy music like The Shins.


Here's a photo of Greg getting 5 over from a couple of weeks ago... it's a little blurry because I tried a 2x extender on the 300mm lens that I was using...

Late night skate

Last night, Me, Erica, Cody, and Cooper all hoped the fence to a skate park near school and skated the bowl, which was lit up by the street lights. Here are some photos of the excursion: Cody off the top

The Mondo Booty

I saw this one the Critical Slide Societys blog the other day... it's the logo on Alex Knosts hull shaped by Gato Heroi... it's called the Mondo Booty and apparently its a "big assed Evolution V-bottom..." Can't wait to see footage of it! This logo is super sick and I thought I would share it with you.
