My Fingers Have Found a Home

I have many obsessions.

One of which, unbeknownced to few is skateboarding.
I haven't done it in quite a while, but I still enjoy doing it from time to time.

When I started it, unfortunately was right around the time those damed Tony Hawk games were coming out, which is only crumby because it sorta lends my fandom to a fad, which it really had a lot less to do with.

You see I've loved skateboards since first seeing them in vision magazines that the 2 or 3 lil white dudes who were in my inner city grammar school brought in. I was never one to draw inside the lines and though only those kids were into skateboards I loved them and wanted one really bad.

I never though I could ask my mom for something like that. I thought everything those kids had were too expensive for me to ever ask for, which was bogus, but how could I know.

I thought I would die when after a "business trip" to San Fran my dad brought my brother and I back a couple of old school decks with fishtails that he likely bought from a street vendor for a quarter of the price. Alas, my street, though beautiful, was one of the last brick streets on the east side, so I ended up learning to skate in my driveway only, which was a very long driveway, but I digress...

Fast forward 10 years and at 22 I decided to start learning to skate on my own after my first year of snowboarding, but as I had a lot less time and friends who also skated I turned to as many outlets as I could to get the information and learn the skill.

Internet videos, video games, and the occasional friend weren't the least of which. I think the most influencial though was my army of finger skateboards. I was able to do dangerous things to learn how the board moved when some tricks were performed without the danger of trying them my self was additive. All form the safety of my boring HSBC Kodak check imager. I'm sure that I wouldn't know how to olie if it wasn't for my tech deck.

Fast forward about 10 more years and now I'm old and couched with so much responsibility that I don't have time to sratch my nose before 7:30 at night and then I saw this on the you tubes...

I've been teetering on weather I'd by an iphone or a g1 and I think the decider has just shown up.

  • Linnie 10/17 06:57 Hi Neighbors - I just bought a groovy renovated carriage house on Linwood Ave, and I'm so excited to live in our wonderful city! The large house in front of the carriage house burned down in the 70's. An article I found about the property cited that 'Matthew' on this site had posted a series of photos called 'Lost Linwood" (article was from 2012). I thought maybe Matthew was still on this site or perhaps someone could help me find the photos. I'd love to see the original house and carriage house
  • joe 09/12 01:54 well maybe the fall and setting up my computer again will get me to post regularly
