Death Cab [26 Nov 2003|03:56pm]
[ mood | excited ]

Death Cab for Cutie was the best band I have ever seen in my life. They sold out three shows in a matter of days. Such a great time and the music was so good.

Why do I write in this journal? Sometimes I think its a waste of time, sometimes I love the damn thing. I am too busy with skateboarding now, to ever write in this. Oh yeah and working too. Man friday night was the best. Being able to skate with Caleb and Chad and hanson. That was cool. Now just wait until the whole crew decides to show up. Man mad hammers will be going down. Ben, Caleb, David, Jessie, Hanson, chad, Apples, Eric, and of course I will be there. That makes me sound like I am conceded. It will remind us of old times but with some new kids in the crowd. I really need to get my liscence so I can take everyone street skating. Now I am going to camp in December. Everythings going so well, I am wondering that its all gonna fall apart. Emerica Bia Bia. Suck my skating. I promise I will write more later. Never make a promise you cant keep.

Emerica Ams.... [08 Oct 2003|04:11pm]
[ mood | excited ]

Trailer park trash that blew in from the high desert (Victorville, California, precisely), Bryan Herman is a dedicated young ripster who doesn't care much about anything--except riding his skateboard. Super-tech yet somehow super-gnarly, Herman brings down the biggies with the best of 'em in a style reminiscent of a young Jamie Thomas--but ten times better.
Seventeen year-old Bryan was born April 10, 1986 and, like many, started out life the simple way: riding BMX bikes and playing baseball. Thanks to the early influence of his older brother, Wayne, however, Herman wisely picked-up a skateboard six years ago at the ripe old age of eleven--leaving those vastly inferior traditional and "extreme" sports in the dust. Although Herms claims he grew-up pretty much alone in his formative years (giving him plenty of time to work on tricks), sessions with fellow wheat shredders Matt Allen and David Odle were not uncommon.
After unintentionally starting a riot at school with a product toss, Herman got expelled, then just decided to drop out completely to enjoy the touring life of the sponsored skater. In fact, along with Tosh Townend, Bryan was one of the first amateurs on Emerica and helped build the am squad into the up-and-coming powerhouse it is today. A former Emerica Mansion guest, you can currently find Hermdizzle on the couch tour at the homes of teammates Andrew Reynolds or Kevin Long, Emerica Team Manager Justin Regan or RVCA Manager Jimmy Arrighi--backed-up with occasional visits to his mom's place in Victorville.
Herman's personality is kind of manic--he's really up or really down. He can be fully hyperactive one minute and quite quiet and pensive the next. Suddenly cropping his long locks way short or shaving his eyebrows off on a whim, Herman is one youngster who is definitely not afraid to switch-up his looks on a dime. Similarly, he also won't hesitate to let out an occasional holler as lead vocalist in a band called the Bakers, with the illustrious Jim Greco on guitar, Andrew Reynolds on keyboards, Spanky on bass and Robin Fleming on drums.
Despite all of the trappings of the skateboarding industry, Bryan really does just skate for fun and lets everything happen naturally--an approach to skating that many other kids would do well to learn. Herm's "career" highlights thus far include flying around the world for free on skate tours, getting a cover and interview in Thrasher and filming his bangin' part for Emerica's This Is Skateboarding video and DVD.
Herman spends off-board moments playing video games, listening to music, eating food and just hanging-out with his friends. His future goals include filming for the upcoming Baker video--which will surely propel him into the realm of superstardom--and possibly turning pro at some point. Oh, and just staying happy.

Emerica Ams.... [08 Oct 2003|04:09pm]
[ mood | crappy ]

From the run-down shacks and garbage-strewn vacant lots of Fontucky (also known as Fontana), California, comes the young whippersnapper Leo Romero. Plenty of filmers and fellow woodpushers alike admire Leo for his totally killer style--not to mention his uncanny ability to stomp the biggest sledghammers first try. He's a well-known handrail / stairs abuser who can--unbeknownst to many--punish lots of other terrain equally well. For example, Leo loves tranny--regularly slashing to pieces his local bowl paradise, Fontana Skatepark.
Sixteen year-old Leo first started skating about six years ago, thanks to his friends, The Death Junkies. Early influences included Jamie Thomas and Andrew Reynolds, which perhaps explains Leo's balls-out approach to shred-sledding today. Boyeee comin' up quick! Just a couple of years back, Leo had to ask permission to spend the night at a friend's house. Now, he's flown the coop to tour the world on his own, regularly skating with the top pros he grew-up influenced by--even receiving calls from former idol Jamie Thomas to ride for his latest shoe venture. Of course, staying on Emerica is a no-brainer.
In fact, Leo skates so much, he has to attend alternative school two hours per day, two days per week to get a diploma to keep his mom happy. Always down for business, it's not uncommon for Leo to call-up filmers and photographers as often as friends to go skating. For proof of his dedicated work ethic, scope Leo's parts in Emerica's This Is Skateboarding video and DVD, his massive sixteen-page amateur interview in Thrasher and the totally bicthin' section he's currently working on for the next Foundation video.
These days, Leo skates with Matt Allen, Bryan Herman and Ryan Reckenfield a lot, and his favorite skaters of all time include Erik Ellington, Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart, Brian Summner, Brian Anderson and Eric Koston. Leo's future goal is to possibly turn pro someday later on. Always joking, super-funny, and making the most hilarious faces, this kid is totally easy to get along with. As Thrasher put it, "Everybody loves Leo".
That pretty much wraps it up for our man, Leo Romero. And always remember: take the "r" out of his last name and what do you have? That's right, ladies...Romeo.

New York, Paris, London, Berlin, Tokyo...in the past year, Kevin Long has become a dashing playboy and international man of mystery--all at 18 years of age. It's with the confidence and swagger of a young man who's seen it all that Kevin steps onto his board, causing more than a few established pros to stand up and nervously take notice. Kevin gained his knowledge the hard way--on the streets--and has used his straight gangsta hustle to parlay his boardskillz into big deals with some of the world's most well-renowned skateboard companies. Kevin's big-time am status is well-deserved, just peep the new Emerica video, This Is Skateboarding, available at a skate shop near you.
Not bad for a kid of such humble beginnings. A former pimp, playa, hustler and con-man extraordinaire, Kevin's nickname, Spanky, comes from the heavy-handed pimpin' lessons he served-up while breaking in hoes down on the track in the dirty ghettos of his hometown in Westlake Village, California. Speaking from his temporary residence at the [now defunct] Emerica mansion high up in the Hollywood Hills, Kevin says he’s only too happy to finally leave the thug life behind him, but he warns, "you can take da thug out da ghetto, but you cain’t never take da ghetto out da thug." Word.

I get all numb when she sings its over
Such a strange numb and it brings my knees to the earth
And God bless you all for the song you saved us...
You're the same numb when she sings its over
Such a strange numb it could bring back peace to the earth
So God bless you all for the song you saved us...
For the hearts you break everytime you moan...
I get all numb...
We're the same numb and it brings our knees to the earth
So God bless you all for the song you saved us...
For the hearts you break everytime you moan
And God bless you all on the earth

Me... [29 Sep 2003|03:20pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

I dont know really what to say or how to start out this note about me to you. Right now, I have realize that what I had said earlier was all just mixed emotions and feelings I was thinking at the time. I was so caught up in the moment and I am gonna totally regret it now. I am so upset because I feel as though I have failed as a person. Not failed to please man, but I have failed in a way to God. Try to get somewhere. But I only got nowhere. I am better now. It shows me that a lot of people whom I care for, care for me. It just breaks my heart knowing that I was such a fool for saying those stupid things. I know we all fall every now and again. But I just need to get things straight. Everythings better now. I love you all!!!!

Dont make this fake
Last second of life
Faux obsolete
Assemble the empire

Following fell on hard times
This one wont count
We wont count it at all
Slow down
The factions cast a failure of crowns
Benevolence forces itself
Fallen from state
Into the hands of the law
Slow down
These factions cast a failure of crowns

Slow down

The host of the show comes down
To collapse to the ground
And the crime scene revisits me
This body shut down in Bordeaux
And the shores of gold coast on the balcony
I search for sleep
The future has fallen short
When the sun sets north
And the clouds fall from mirrored walls

Words speak in truth
Make sense and lose
Capsize the tall tale, but always fail
Words speak and choose, make sense and lose
Forfeit the tall tale, I always will

The host had his mouth sewn shut
And in the name of trust
When the blood goes thin, he's given in
You can spare us the formal toast
The drunken anecdotes
From this day on...goes on and on...

You know when he falls apart
He listens in the dark to records turn
I'll never learn

To set it down
You'll set it down
