chrome ball incident #215: the big payback

good to see holmes out and skating again, word is that he was at the mindfield premiere, too.

dude really needs to start putting more of that artwork of his out there. super good.

Word has it sometime this month there is going to be a brand new interview with him on the Plan B website to coincide with the re-release of the monkey graphic deck.

Plan B needs to save some face and put this man back on the team. Then maybe he can whoop Jeremy Rogers ala Ryan Fabree and we can all be happy.

Keith said...

lol

Plan B is pretty deep into the corniness and cheesiness side of things, I don't think they will ever reach the pinnacle of the OG Plan B.

Insert -

FABRE

Aside from getting down with Sean's lady, was/is one good guy and one hell of a skateboarder.

don't know what it is but sean in that field of flowers always bugs me out. can't help but grin at it.

yeah tp, not quite sure what their deal was with that file cabinet... or the fact thrasher used to have those highly-questionable fashion layouts.

skeem, incident #118. late august. i remember because it has my favorite alias for an anonymous comment poster ever... mayor ed koch.

Plan B will never come anywhere close to its orginal form. Not gonna happen.

and speaking of this... has it struck anybody as odd that all this sheff love seems to be coming from the plan b camp and not so much girl? hmmmm.....

sheff on the new plan b gives me the creeps but i have to say that sean scaring the fuck out of sheckler would make for a very entertaining episode of Life of Ryan. haha.

royce, fabry/fabre was sick back in the day. dude killed it in the a1 meats video. although dude had to be nuts to cross sheff like that...

WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH ?? SHEF'S COMING BACK?

I'm I insane in thinking I saw an ad/sequence of Sheff no-complying to a handrail back in the Life era? (maybe even Shut??) Kinda like thinking I saw a sequence of Gonz later half-flipping onto a handrail darkslide. But I swear I really saw the Sheff one...) Someone give me peace.

And what about the subway rail ollie from one side to the other?! Man's a legend!

Coming up skating in the outskirts of Washington DC everyone knew of the legend that is Sean Sheffey. I remember this mad man on wheels zoomin past me with his blonde afro at Landsdowne skatepark in 1989. I must have been all of ten yrs old at the time but I remember sheffey giving me props for my ollie one foots and melanchollies over the hip. I couldnt believe that he even noticed me let alone liked what I was doing. I guess being that were the only BROTHAS at the park had something to do with that. I grew up watching him become the superstar that hed become. As a little black kid it made me proud to see a brother not only hold his own but reach levels of skill that were on par with the best skaters in the world AND he was from my area. His shaky past never took away from his legend in my eyes. I witnessed the CRAZE first hand (ima leave that out tho)
