reclamation






alright sick, it’s confirmed, i don’t know what i want and i think knowing is quite dangerous.   upon obtaining what I perceived to be my ultimate dream life I realised that dreams are purely a guide to what is next and could be more accurately described as a disguised goal-due to it’s perceived unattainability.  i thought travelling the world skateboarding and taking pictures of it was the be all and end all but i’ve realised that it is not- it’s incredibly sick, but its not. i think i took a major life-shortcut in assuming that all greatness comes from doing what you want to do- im sure this [freedom] plays a huge role but i think i am realising that ‘doing’ is forgettable because ‘feeling’ is forever enduring…

i assume i’m similar to most of you in the sense that casting review upon ones self in years passed generally insights embarrassment [fashion] but this is acceptable because it’s relevant to time..  however, consider your past-personality and it generally insights emotions much more significant than embarrassment…  personality transcends eras and trends because it is the route of all things personal, not a guise- such as fashion, and everything you do and perceive is relevant to your person, not time.  

perhaps this is why i enjoy dressing ridiculously..  because concerns regarding self-consciousness last only the instant in-which they present themselves, but stoke, contentedness and having a good time will for as long as i can remember it…. i guess hence why people say being nice will get you far in life..





anyhow, enough wig- time for some reality.


Last august Landyachtz sent Guff, Kyle Martin and myself out to Montreal to chase some footage and photos for Kyle.  It was a tricky trip for a handful of reasons but for the sake of exampling i’ll highlight only the fact it rained 85% of the trip and with only one skater proactivity can be hindered by tiredness/injury etc-  i can’t be bothered writing anymore, photo time.

The great climate exchange has me sitting here in Vancouver right now, huffing the 2nd worse air (AQI index) on the planet currently, wondering how

the espresso paradox considers the point where the espresso’s speed benefits result in a longer completion time than if one had not spent time acquiring and consuming the espresso in the first place.  this point is mostly controlled by one’s desire to consume the espresso, not the resulting time gains.
