chrome ball incident #810: buckshot dub












Unstoppable.

I've alluded to this before but it's always so inspiring to rediscover the virtual mountain of top-shelf coverage John has. This is Cards post #12 for the Chrome Ball Incident with still more to come. The fucking best.

I'd like to thank a few people real quick: Chris Nieratko, Isaac Mckay-Randozzi, Dennis McGrath, Clyde Singleton, Aaron Meza, Damon Thorley, Alyasha Moore and the Chez.

And I'd also like to throw out a few links to things that really made me happy over the last week or so:
this, this and this. So good.

FYI party people, I'll get more into this later but it does appear that the Chrome Ball Offices are going to be moving during the month of September so please bear with me. The site will be forced to go on hiatus for a few weeks during that time but it will return... after all, I'm not moving all these fucking magazines cross-country for nothing!

But seriously, where else would Chrome Ball relocate to?

Holler if you actually move to PTown. I have a grip of mags you may not have.
Thank you for all the work you've put into this site. It's absolutely amazing!
Cards Fo Life!

Been a rough summer here in CO. Nothing like a little Cards to lift the spirits. Holy crap, that last photo...

Thanks again Chops.

one of those dudes where stills work just as well - and sometimes better than - video footage. That spit ad, man, people used to ride 44mm wheels... sheesh!

Cards made me decide to get on a board for the first time at 30 years old. If he can keep going, I have no excuses. Excellent post!

So many good shots in this one. Crazy style!

Good luck in Portland! I've never seen that Portlandia show before. None of the channels I get up here air it. Funny stuff.

Wheatley said...

Damn, Portland? Like someone else asked.. Nike get you?

Pagoda said...

Hopefully this does not conflict with the sticker team duties but I am stoked. I'm glad Nike hires people like Chops.

There's an old, old Spitfire press ad I was hoping to see on here.

Cardiel doing a frontside wall ride off a bank onto an office window somewhere.

Cap backwards, plaid shirt, black and white, full tweak...

Probably 91 or 92?

Anyone got it?
