Goddamn was I ever stoked for this years' gift swap! Here's some snaps from the day:
Lots more on my flickr set!
Everyone gave and got rad shit so it was a great time. Not only was I stoked on the day but Justin announced that he would like to organize another gift swap during the summer- FUCKING AWESOME! Super stoked to hear that an event I really enjoy participating in will now be happening twice a year. Good shit..
I'm sure you noticed someone in there holding their very own newly minted Hail Satan Porteur and beefy cross fork. That's my buddy Mark and I figured he'd be stoked on it. Yes, I made one for someone for free. Fuck it right?! I need beta testers out there in the real world so I'll be making a bunch of stuff for close friends over the next few months. Here's a better snap of it:
Still have a little finishing work to do on it before it gets painted etc. I'll have more pics of it once it's mounted. While it was a lot easier making the second one, it was still a complete pain in the fucking ass. Def came out better than the first one tho. Just need to make some sort of work holding jig for No.3
But enough of that shit because HOLY FUCK MY NEW SOCK MONSTER ROX SO HARD!!!:
ZOMG I was freaking out stoked when Justin gave it to me! I've been wanting one of those lil fucking bastards for like 5 years now!! So super stoked on it and Justin really nailed it with the embroidered CWMD shop apron too! Now I've got a little shop buddy to hang and get stoney baloney with :-D

Been seeing this Crusty ass Colnago locked up a few doors down from my girl's place for a while now. There's never not an overabundance of smelly trashed right next to it..
Then there's this Jackson I saw outside of MOMA today which I feel like I've either seen before and or know the person it belongs to:
In other news the Handmade Gift Swap was yesterday and RULED! I'll have a post up about it tomorrow most likely..
Also exciting is that after a year plus of having to go without, I'll FINALLY have health insurance again starting on the 1st:
SO STOKED TO DO STUPID SHIT AGAIN!!!
Along with not so stupid shit as well. I forced myself to take it easy this past year to avoid accidentally fucking my shit up and incurring an exorbitant medical bill like every other unlucky asshole in this country. So as you can imagine I am very, very fucking excited to get some real skateboarding and down and dirty hooning done soon :-D
Then there's the great debate I'm struggling with right now is:
To NAHBS, or not to NAHBS???
Part of me really wants to go again but the more sensible side of me is desperately trying to win out. After going to the last two I feel like I can skip a year and it won't be too big a deal. This year requires a 6ish hour flight to Cali and I don't really want to take any time off / pay for hotel costs. Meaning, leaving friday night and coming back Sunday night. Also, I has no bike which is another bit of a bummer.
But then, part of me REALLY wants to go since I had such a blast at the last one in Austin! My boy Lyle will be there to screw about with, Prolly could fill his ball busting quota for the year on me along with all the hobnobbing to be done with the rest of the bike weirdos in attendance..
So yeah, I can be assured of good times but I can also expect to burn like a grand plus on expenses, whatever impulsive buys I make at the show itself and all the tastiest greasiest morsels I'll be sure to nosh on while in town. The money thing isn't too big a deal but I've really been trying to stay focused on getting the rest of my Anvil tools into the shop.
I suppose you guys could fill me in on happenings going on that are not to be missed and or shit to check out while in Sacramento. Otherwise I'm still on the fence about what to do..

..around here, rest assured the gears are turning and progress is being made. Typical work drama has been draining the fuck out me to say the least, but every 12th hour in a row of work, I know I'm getting that much closer to meeting my goals..
In the meantime, discovering cool shit like this keeps me going:
Totally forgot that I shot that little snippet while taking this photo:
Aside from that I don't have much to report. Oh wait! There's this free front wheel contest from Tokyo Wheel being held on my least favorite website:
God I would fffffucking kill for a set of those badboys!
Then I'm taking bets on how grievously priced this NOS Cinelli Demi Fond adjustable stem is sure to go for:
Seeing as how there's still 5 days left and it's already at $400 fucking dollars it's sure to be a shit show..
Also, this, this, this, this, this one for Lyle and definitely this is making me feel all warm and tingly inside!
Oh and hey what do you know, I'm finally done with work at Midnight. Can't wait to be back here at 10am!!
..fucking cluster fuck place
