chrome ball incident #132: all tomorrow's parties












the prototype for the modern day street skater, the eternally-fresh Mike Carroll.

at the very top is one of my favorite photos.... and i still don't know why transworld had to ruin it by running Ocean's contest article over top of it. i love ocean and all... but damn! anyway, i just love dyrdek in the front row, looking straight-up. sick.

alright party people, i'm out to NY for a brief stint this weekend and have decided to take next week off. straight up, i'm just mad tired and need some time to regroup and update the formulas, ya know...

i will return on Monday, the 29th. thanks for all the support and don't forget about me.

So many great shots of MC. Love the fs crooks in the cover of that Thrasher and all those mute grabs. The guys is just super photogenic when he skates. The excellent style obviously helps.

I remember that mac and cheese H-Street pro model he had which was out for a second and then he bailed to Plan B.

oh yeah. Have a great time in NY and a relaxing week off.

What a great post to get me hyped for the weekend! I hadn't seen the pic of mc with the jovontae t for years. Cheers.

thanks keith. take care homie.

and jason, that one is crazy nostalgic for me, too. i know it's only a back heel, but that joint brings back so much stuff.

awesome post

love picture 3, back heel...

gotta love those slicks and the way they looked (not the way they skated)...you never see any graphics today that come close to the images you could get on a slick...

pretty sure my mate had that deck, think its a sheffey maybe...

chops said...

haha, figured you'd figure out those not-so-subtle hints, k... although i'm more worried about further hearing loss from another lightning bolt go-around.

oreo, that's a varial heel

and julianjason, feel you on the aesthetic points of slicks... and that is a sal barbier in the back heel photo. had one myself.

Best post ever. Never gets better than Carroll. I used to have an interview issue of TWS that had a Carroll interview...it's lost, but it was definetly 1993. He had a tre flip noseslide at Embarcadero. Donger was in there as well. If you got it I'd be stoked to see it. Peace homie.
