P.S. I really hate the edit I did, so there will be a new edit available on our new DVD. I will cross my fingers and hope we can start releasing them in Blue Ray. Check back soon for more info on that.
Dan The Man sent me this photo of a pre-crash Ari trying his damnedest to imitate The Gonz. Badass. In an odd coincidence, searching for "gonz treeride" on Google Images pulls up these photos, but none of the Great Gonzarelli flairing out of a tree.
I didn't make it out to Hell On Wheels 4, due to being really hungover, but from what I've been told, it was pretty rad. I guess that somebody did a tuck no-hander down a huge set, Dirt McGirt had a huge sack of bud, and David Urbieta somehow managed to break his shoulder falling off a curb after getting back to San Jose.
I rode out at Roosevelt for a couple hours this morning with the Graceful Manatee before going to work. A near-empty park is a happy park, at least until the City trash-collector shows up at ten. Shades of Sunnyvale's "Lawnmower Man."
And here's Marco's Icer Air web edit:
P.S. Hell on Wheels 4 tomorrow!
And here's Nick "that vaguely familiar-looking guy with the VX2000" Gust's Icer Air edit, complete with that one as the finale:
This right here is a shot of Derek Wilson doing a treeride-to-fakie, by Joey something-or-other.
The Roosevelt park in Downtown SJ is now open, or at least is supposed to be; the grand-opening date is December 11th, if memory serves me right. Should make for some great morning sessions.
The Halloween Jam at Fun Spot is now on Sunday, November 2nd, and is now the End of Summer Jam. It starts at noon, and the entrance fee is a five-dollar donation for Mike Aitken and two cans of food for the Second Harvest Food Bank. For more info, contact Crazy Chris, Mike Hernandez, or Jackson Allen. Also benefitting Aitken is a jam Justin Wendlandt is putting on at the Gilroy park on November 22nd. Click here to see the flyer.
And, now, a message...
And here's a new Bay Game edit. Jackson's line at 1:26 is fucking legit.
Part two of Marco's Lotek SF edit is up on Vimby. Click here to watch it.
Mike Kohn sent me a new edit featuring some of the Walnut Creek locals:
Here's a photo that Dan Dunn took of Mike Marcelino: Proper fucking no-footer.

Cody Brown is working on a fixed gear site: Fixed Culture
Elliott, tuck no-hander air.
Dakota, subbox fufanu.
Photos of Elliott by Cory, taken on a couple different days at the Morgan Hill park:
Drivin' that bus!
Street photos by Derek and Rigo, of Rigo and Derek:
Meet The Street photos and video on the Ride site, and Marco's edit for Vimby, which is way more entertaining than the Ride edits. There's also some photos that Joey took up on Unevenground. I didn't get a chance to look through all the footy I've got yet, but hopefully I'll have an edit done tomorrow night; I'd do it tonight, but I'll be at the Sharks-Blue Jackets game, so... yeah.
Icer Air is Saturday only, not Friday and Saturday, as I had previously posted. Mike's supposed to be sending a flier my way to post up, but for the time being, go to IcerAir.com for more info.
Crazy Chris is setting up a Halloween Jam at Fun Spot on Saturday, November 1st. Flier coming soon. The only real detail I have is that it's some sort of benefit for the homeless, and the entry fee is going to be two (or more) cans of food.
P.S. Pete Brandt interview coming soon...
Not to detract from the value of Nip's post from earlier today, as I meant to post this stuff up last night, but instead I ended up watching Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog, which is totally awesome. Joss Whedon is my master now. Anyway...
There's going to be a (presumably) oldschool BBQ at Calabazas on Saturday, October 18th, entitled The Harvest Party. For more info, click this link.
Pictures from Scarbecue 37, the Morgan Hill park, and the streets will be up tomorrow evening. Probably.
