Thanks to Anthony Pappalardo and Jenkem for putting this out. Know your skateboarding history.
Along with the rest of the skate-o-sphere, I was shocked to learn that Brian Anderson and Alex Olson quit Girl. It’s the equivalent of quitting pizza or sex–you’re crazy to give either up unless someone has a gun to your head. Rumors quickly surfaced that BA was starting a new brand out of the Skate Mental camp and anyone from Alex Olson to Dill and A.V.E. were going to skate for it. Eventually Anderson started leaking logos on Instagram for his new brand 3d skateboards.
While the name 3d might seem fairly innocuous to most, it really irked the inner skate nerd in me. What was the big deal about the name?
Well it was already used by a company started in Connecticut in 1990 by Matt Landon or Skimps if you know him well. Most people know Brian Anderson is from Connecticut–Groton to be specific–and he’s close in age to both myself and Landon, so he had to be aware of 3d Innovations right? Chrome Ball mentioned getting 3d’s DVD (which is still available here for only $5.00) and Quartersnacks posted a complimentary and detailed review of it in 2011 when it was released. Of course my surprise was nothing compared to how Landon felt when he heard about the new venture. (more…)

The annual Mermaid Parade at Coney Island was last weekend. Beautiful day and I got to paint/airbrush some scales on a couple of beautiful mermaids…
Yes, I can airbrush. No, I will NOT do any t-shirts. But I will body paint for the right person, project (and ..price!). Now taking appointments for Halloween and the next Mermaid Parade or anything else fun.
So many cool costumes at the parade and throughout the day/night. Some people’s creativity was really impressive, girls were looking great as usual, and I got more than a chuckle at others. Here’s a glimpse… (more…)
