sick post! Gotta love Pupecki's style. One of the best in the biz. The crazy thing about him is in pictures and on video, he's got tall guy style but in real life, he's not that tall. I was really surprised. Schnurr is really freaking tall!

okay, i fixed the sequence joint to where you can click on it now... don't know exactly what was going on there.

i'm sweating those converse joints hardcore.

the only pros i ever remember really noticing their size was sheffey (who was built like a wrecking ball) and dyrdek (who's like 3 feet tall).

Remember Ron Whaley?
He was seriously tall...

chops said...

yeah, whaley's the go-to tall dude. never saw him in person but i think he's like 6'6". kinda felt bad for the dude cause he was really good but every interview just talked about how tall he was. that had to bum him out.

Pupecki runs a plumbing co. in RH now.

I just noticed you refer to him as "pecks". I always find it funny how different people have different nicknames for their favourite pros. My friends and I have always referred to him as "pupecks" and a few other examples are Mike Carroll as MC and Scott Johnston as SJ... although I would think the latter two are more universal.

chops said...

yeah, not sure where we got "pecks" from... some of that shit just comes out of thin air and you can't remember if everybody called him that or just you and youre crew.

yeah, SJ and MC were pretty universal... although there's also "scuba" and "nerd" if you wanna go the hardcore SF route.

Re: Billy Waldman

If you've ever seen the movie KIDS, Billy is the dubious character at the end of the movie trying to get with a girl by using the line "Girlie, I love you. I'll buy you corn dogs."

Last I checked, he was still kickin'around the NYC scene. And this is from a rather reliable source back home. Word up.
