“Skateboarding is not a hobby. And it is not a sport. Skateboarding is a way of learning how to redefine the world around you.
For most people, when they saw a swimming pool, they thought, ‘Let’s take a swim.’ But I thought, ‘Let’s ride it.’
When they saw the curb or a street, they would think about driving on it. I would think about the texture.
I slowly developed the ability to look at the world through totally different means.”

I feel Ian MacKaye on this one. He managed to sum up in a few sentences what I’ve been trying to explain to people for years.
Aaw so cute!
I need me some cat, NOW!
If reincarnation does exist, I’ll be reincarnated in that kind of cat for sure.
If you see me in a fight with a bear, prey for the bear. Here we don’t quit, we don’t cower, we don’t run
And after a one year hiatus due to (still unhealed) backache… WE’RE BACK ON BOARD!!!
And please check that enlightened building at the back matching with my skate shoes (yeah I get deep in the details)!
In a way I miss the good ol’days when I used to dress like this and feel fresh
That’s totally me 90% of the time
I might have been that kind of kid.
I want to be that kind of father!
I want my kid to be that cool!
French Santa has been good to us this year: Maison Margiela for H&M leather jackets and denim jacket, Nike Flyknit purple trainers, M.I.A’s book, Kinder chocolates, Lolita Lempicka’s new male fragrance, etc, etc. =)
I love being back home.
