that cover of Transworld baffled me when I saw it for the first time. I was all like "does he clear the last part of the rail completely, wtf"?

Coals to Newcastle said...

Have you seen the latest Transworld? There's a Mighty Healthy ad with a Gino sequence.

Love the Dead End ad. Still got one of their original tee's. Miss the days when you saw a Dead Endustries sticker on every tollbooth in the tri-state area.

Wish I could have seen him man the tables with Jeru on the mic at the Static 3 premiere.

Love the ZOOYORK AD.
Swagger On a Million!

I've seen that new Gino ad. It's the whole reason I bought that zine. Cleanliness of that k/f out is gorgeous.

On a V. Ponte note, I agree, his mixtape part was sick. I loved that line through some quad area where he does a kf over a marble bench and he's wearing a lo'goose vest.

i also love ponte's thrasher video cameos. and his pig wheels video part was sick as fuck too -- at that point i was winding down my own participation in organized basketball, and vinnie gave me the answer for what to do with my beat white air jordan XI low tops.

Who did the Love Gap before Vinnie Ponte?

Ishmal said...

choppy omega did it before him

Giles said...

ricky oyola confirmed the choppy rumor in his slap interview. he didn't, however, confirm whether or not choppy was on mushrooms.

Tim said...

what was that one transworld video where the kids board gets stolen, he sneaks into the house, theres a jukebox and he's all omg vinnie ponte!

Tim, that's Transworld's "Greatest Hits." I love that video. the soundtrack is super good.

saw that thing Berra did on the Berrics. Sick to see Vinnie doing well.

Thinking back to the good ol days of the Zoo. The Mixtape was so sick.

thanks guys.

yes Coals, we here at the chrome ball incident are very aware of Mr. Iannucci's efforts and are watching with bated breath as further events continue to unfold. we did not wish to disturb the cosmos with talk of the messiah's second coming but please believe me when i say that we are indeed very excited.

anon2, you are correct. much left to do before chrome ball retires quietly into the night.

anon4... ishmal and giles are both correct. choppy himself previously blessed the cbi comment pages to tell this sordid tale here.
