A hectic week on the road, followed by a busy weekend, all balanced out with a session at Birdland last night that was almost a religious experience. When all the craziness of real life can be set aside for a half hour and the feeling of floating weightlessly takes over, it's all good. That's Cullen Venekamp experiencing it right there.
I've been trying to get caught up on the Xgames. I don't know why it's so hard to keep TV shows on schedule. The BMX street was almost all cut off (at the beginning?) on my DVR. That was the one event I really wanted to see. Morgan Wade is a trip. Man-stache and jet black Freddy Mercury-ness. Anthony Naplitan's double front was just rigoddamndiculous and I stoked that Kevin Robinson won the big air thing. Dude has paid his dues X10.
Rainbow sighting during a lunch hour dig session for the upcoming Birdland Summer Showdown scheduled for August 22. More details to follow...
