chrome ball incident #256: que sera sera








That Jason Dill sure does give a good interview.

Classic turn-of-the-century joints from one of my all-time favorite skateboarders.

Alright party people... in celebration of chrome ball's upcoming 1 year anniversary (April 19th), I've decided to take the next week off. Just need a few days to relax, regroup and update the formulas a bit. Thank you for all the support over the last year... pretty amazing.

Special anniversary post (of some sort) when I come back.

Congrats to ONEUP.

lol. Where did I read/hear that Dill hates being on the web and on peoples' blogs.

Hey E, is the shop that won the Stereo shop video contest near you?

damn keith, telling me about shit going on in my own town before i even know about it. yeah, that one is about a mile from my house. nice dudes.

big up to greg and jerry over at oneup and also to the stereo massive.

and yeah keith, that interview was in last month's transworld. evidently dill hates blogs but loves bobshirt. ill.

Nice to see pics of when Dill actually skated. Just because his video game paycheck pays for his apt & coke habit doesn't make him shit. He'll always be a SoCal fag to me and other real NY skaters who work for a living. He does NOT skate anymore. Don't let all those ads of him standing and 30sec video part fool you,

My favorite Dill part was photosynthesis, but I didn't think his new part was bad.
I just noticed that 'jiggy' is in the corner of the big brother flick, that's gonna bother me for a bit.

Seriously chops, you're killing it so hard lately.
And I love the anonymous haters.
Dill could make a bennihana look cool.

I think those are vitas. I think.

those are an early vita team model in the backside nosebluntslide photo.

dill only gets better, and aside from its brevity his part in the new alien video makes every other part of his feel incredibly dated. he cited early '90s omar hassan as a current reference point, for chrissakes. no one has his depth, relevance, and richness.

really good angle on that hubba photo. pretty cool that it's a dennis mcgrath. Dill's new part is arguably the most enjoyable in the video for me.
