I moved into an apartment with three other friends, I live in a closet. It’s been pretty cool and rent is super cheap because of that. I’ve been rehabbing my knee. I blew my knee out at the end of last year and I’m four months out of surgery and I just saw a doctor down here and he said it was all good. I’ve been riding my bike and I got a gym membership and I’m trying to eat better—a whole life change (laughs).
I hurt it at the beginning of the year filming, like in January. I jumped down a set of stairs and hurt it then so I went to the doctor to get it checked out and he said it was all good so I was like, “Okay, cool.” Then I went filming all year with the People guys and every time I came off a rail weird it would hurt and shake and do all this crazy stuff so I knew it was messed up, but I didn’t really want to go see a doctor. At the end of the year in Mammoth I came off this park rail all weird and just felt it totally slip. And then I was done, I went to get it checked and I had torn my ACL.
Yeah, that was the same trip, the next day. It was funny ‘cause Darrell [Mathes] fell super hard and kinda got shooken up. I was like, “Oh man that sucks.” Then JP got hurt and blew his shoulder out and I go, “Man I’m next,” but Darrell said naw you’ll be fine. Don’t curses always come in threes?
Well, everyone said I would get fat, but luckily I got that gym membership and I got this girl’s cruiser bike. I’ve been watching movies and playing mad video games—Bond 007.
Yeah that one and the Xbox version.
It should be fun, Sean Johnson is producing it and Ilari, the same guy that did the Child Support movie is going to film it. And then we have a couple more filmers and it’s basically going to be JP, Simon, Markku, Stian, Risto, Fredu, and I.
It’s going to be pretty small which is good. It’s just fun because we all have different views on things and I guess it just works. Like Simon, JP and I went to Bear and I never really knew JP very well, but by the end of it were just hanging out.
It’s seriously like a family. I’ve been with Stepchild three years now and I just can’t see myself anywhere else. All those guys make it super fun. I can’t really complain.
The doctor said I have about two more months, which is okay because stuff should just start rolling by then. Nowadays it seems like we start filming later and end later so that should work out. I’m just curious to see how it feels to hop back on my snowboard. My steeze will be all weird, I’ll probably look like a rollerblader.
Yeah I like it. They made the movie really well. I like a lot of the parts, Jordan’s, John’s, Simon’s and all the guys that I filmed with this year. I think they did a super good job. Do you like it?
Yeah I was anxious to see it again too so I went to a shop and bought one. I wanted to see the bonus too because the bonus has all the good stuff.
I went to the Goofy versus Regular of skate. It was awesome. I got to go in the park and sit down by all the guys. I’m a pretty big skate nerd when it comes to that stuff so I kind of fan out about some am kid or something. I saw Dylan Rieder and Chris Cole, I never to get to see any of that in Minnesota. I was there for like five hours just watching.
Yeah I wanted to skate so bad. Random kids were skating the park and I could have been too if my leg was better.
The new TWS vid And Now. I saw the Fallen vid Ride the Sky a couple times it’s pretty good. I think And Now has some more appealing riders though. I’m just waiting to see the other flicks come out.

This weekend turned out to be quite the extravaganza. The weekend was cold and wet, with a very good chance of moving snow to set up some features. Seems like classes had another plan for me. Spend the day studying then have a few big boy pops before heading to the 'ol watering hole. Have a few cold ones, have a nice stroll home then of course sleep in.
However the walk home was a lot more epic than could have ever imagined. As we are nearing Hudson's on Whyte Avenue I noticed a bunch of cops standing around basically doing nothing. There were two EMS paramedics attending to a girl crying on the ground. Then I notice this dude is bleeding like 5 feet from the coppers. So I ask any of the 5 cops if they could maybe get this dude a wet nap, I mean he’s bleeding like every where. Obviously this was way to much work for those lazy ass pigs to do. Instead they threatened to give me a ticket for public intoxication. I immediately claim I’m not drunk and they can even give me a breathalyzer. He then forced me against the wall pick pockets my wallet and gives me a ticket for public intoxication.
What a joke.. like i ask for them to help out a civilian which I believed to be in their job description but they cant be bothered to do anything. 5 Police just kicking it not one could step up. Then as he finishes writing my ticket one of the other cops goes into the ambulance and gets him a wet nap. I guess it was the bitching about fighting the ticket and of course following through with a complaint on the officer.
Needless to say, this weekend got a little bit out of control. At least I made it through the weekend without the pain of missing the shred.
Heres a video that caught my eye this week. Enjoy.
