#854: fuck it, dude... let's go bowling

"Know who's the illest ever like the greatest story told."

Hokus Pokus night sessions at that bank to curb with the fence on top (School W?)... goddamn, that stokes me out. Nothing better. 

Starting off the new year right with this rarely seen Chicago-era Hensley interview from Lowlife Magazine, 1993.

I honestly didn't even know this existed until my man Isaac sent me the issue a few weeks ago.

How was everyone's holiday?

Happy New Year! Love all of these Hensley photos. Do you know who took the first one?

Good to have you back, Chops. Happy New Year and all that jazz. And big ups on the Transworld articles. So sick!

I'd never seen the interview or that backside kick flip photo before. The Vespa sticker on his helmet is perfect.

First melonchollie shot! nice.

The sequence labelled henshalfcabflipchrome.jpg... is it? It's described as a bs flip but it almost looks stationary judging by where that oil spot at the bottom of the page is.

He single handedly put A1 Meats on the map.

BS lip photo down the line looks amazing. Kingsize!

I wonder if that skater from Colorado was ever like "I inspired that graphic!" I'd be super stoked for sure. And $9000/month when skateboarding was dying is a nice lump.

Cool interview. Never seen that before. Barely heard anything for a while after he retired from Plan B. I'm guessing this is pre-EMT/paramedic?

Have you seen this? I found it a few weeks ago, and I can't stop watching it, super cool, wish there was more.

i am glad that this mag finally found a home and will be properly archived for all the skaters to check out. i dont know how that mag stuck with me thru all these years but it did. i think it was powells way of trying to market itself like a smaller company. anyways glad your back. keep on trucking!
