MIKE

Some vintage Mike Vallely promos back in the vegan days and pre-tatts (late 80’s) (the last one is such a weird shot… not sure what they were thinking.) I’m doing to drawing on the back grounds during the titles of the film. so it kinda looks like Trip’s drawing s on the wall. Should look good, fingers Xed! Trip and i have more and more in common everyday. ­čśÇ

Thrashin’

A still from Thrashin’ a movie about┬áL.A.┬áskaters. The Daggers (badass tough guys who spray-paint their bedroom walls) can’t stand the dudes from The Valley (the tanned ones with clean hair). The soundtrack was mostly lame 80’s synth stuff, and the message was a bit “it’s ok to skate as long as you don’t look like a punk” but the dialogue was funny! Everything was “gnarly” they weren’t kidding. The downhill race had people crashing their boards at every turn. One guy even had an inflatable skeleton in a noose on his wall! Seriously.
