chrome ball incident #567: half-life











Allow me to echo Snackman's sentiments from earlier today by saying that I don't care how wild dude be talking while flossing in his Kmart sneakers, Quim still gets the pass with me.

I used to sweat this part hard. Still amazing.

...that switch stalefish gets me everytime.

Special thanks to Emerica and the Turf.

Happy Time Links.

My buddy Kev is very picky about his skateboard media - nothing but the best. For ages the only picture he deemed worthy of his wall was that first Quim ollie photo - the massive launch off the loading bay kicker. I reckon Kev's definition of 'best' was spot on.

"kim" is one of my all time favs. the half-life movement hit MN pretty hard. All kinds of - Quim - A. Correa and P. Vaughn clones were about.

1up Chops!

posture on the bs tail and the fs nose is spot on. Huf is another good one for perfect posture.

I watched a kid try bs tails the other day... must have tried at least 2 dozen without landing one. Now I'm not a coach but I had to tell him the secret of not turning the upper body as much as the lower and he didn't believe that it would work. Dude landed the next 4 he tried.

oh yeah... that crailtap clip is amazing! Rick Howard oozes style and same with Jason Lee in that line. I never go to the Berrics anymore lol I'm also going to learn pivot to fakie using Mccrank's heel/toe suggestion.

Quim post - killer. Requests requests - any chance of more Drake Jones?

I seem to remember a different version of that first ollie photo? Am I trippin?

Yeah I've definitely talked some shit on this dude, but old Quim is fuckin badass. Frame 5 in that Self Medicate sequence.

working on it, royce.

anon1, next post.

anon2, a little bit more, yes. a few of drakes had to get taken down though (as well as for a few other skaters)... due to a matter I'm am unable to speak about. sorry.

templeton, you're not crazy. there's another one from the front... thought about using both but figured it might be overkill. next time. thanks man.

thanks watson. thanks everybody.
