You ought to ditch the two geeks you're in the car with now and get in with us.

For Big Chris, I had too much fun tonight! (star star by the 'stones on my musicplayer is for you)

1. star-fucker




Anybody who fucks or gives sexual favours to anybody who is famous or is on their way to becoming famous.

I have two examples of the same star-fucker, who fucked two different stars... one was a friend of mine, an actress who wasn't famous at the time but is now a very well-known Canadian actor, and of course when she actually DID become famous, he would call her up and remind her of when they used to fuck, like she could give a shit anymore... and the other is Rufus Wainright, who was never a friend of mine, but this star-fucker, who shall remain nameless)( and "fame-less".. haha) who new him thru the Montreal music scene, shamelessly had sex with him whenever he could, despite the fact that he is NOT even gay and it was simply because he is famous and star-fuckers crave fame for themselves on a desperate level and when they fuck someone who is famous, it gives them a fleeting feeling of being famous themselves.


2. star-fucker




one who yearns for a star to be sexually available to their skanky ass.

One who has sex exclusively with celebrities...

"sweetie, I'm a star-fucker, I don't do the B-list."

Island Love




videoSeven fold has always maintained a special relationship with the great skateboarders of Kent Island. I rolled across the bridge today to hang out with Teta, James and their homey's Charles & Ryan. James had a very productive first day in the family and Chris pulled in some solid footage too. I had a great time on the island just like I always do, thanks for the hospitality kids lets do this again real soon.

Skouch




Needed a couch in my office, so I used the only materials I had an abundance of, old decks. El Diablo pretty much lives on it, I sleep there sometimes too.

King of the Blogs


videoHad the pleasure of skating with Mr. Rosser today. His brother came equipped with the classic kanji deck. Good move heading west my brother. Billy, you are to blogging what John Brown is to White Rappers.

El Diablo

My dog is one of the Woodland Critters from South Park. You have all been warned.

Fuck Freestyle

videoRodney Mullen can have this shit, my shin and my hip got destroyed on this goofy trick.

Chris Teta

Little Chris is not so little any more. He's been part of the Seven fold family longer than most, Nick Langley spotted him and put him on flow in early 2002, I think he was like 12 or 13. Blose wasn't the only Chris to crush the fullpipes, Teta broke off the nollie heel proper.

Last Saturday @ Kyma


Don't know where to begin on this one. It was a dream come true to have a night of hanging out watching skate videos in Annapolis. DJ T.E.C. invited us to shows some videos and spotlight a little project Blose and I have been working out with the help of Fila, who came out and gave out raffle tickets to win shoes and clothes. It was a great night with all kinds of heads coming from all 4 corners of the Maryland skate landscape. Special shout out to my girl 'S.K. Downs unlimited 2008 all rights reserved' for coming through with some great photos. Thanks to all the heads who came out from all over.
Photo captions are something like this {top to bottom, left to right}
-you could be a winner
-Blose and his son Jordan
-Matt House and Chelsea
-Brian Taylor's middle finger, Ed Fickert, Tony Thomas, and Jake Mendelson = Baltimore's 3 Finest Son's

Sunday bummer Sunday

Zach came over last Sunday to upgrade his classic Seven fold fish ride for the new Wasabi kit.
We tried to skate the Olney park, should have known the glove was foretelling the bummer ahead...


Not riding toys

McConau-who?

Blose was out in Hollywood doing some stunt work for Matthew McConaughey's new skate flick Blazed and Amused...
'it would be a lot cooler if you did'

For the rest of my life

That's how long I'm going to milk this classic (sounds so much better than saying old) photo of my backside 180 nosegrind shuvit at the Lyric. Oh and by the way I got that joint on lock again, thanks for the motivation Mr. Nelson.

Mad Rats


I had a great conversation with Claudio from Mad Rats Shoes. They are a Brazilian skate shoe company making shoes since the 80's, "no china bullshit here". Made in Brazil from 100% natural rubber. Looking forward to helping these guys break into the US market this year.

I'm a Male Model, not a Male Prostitute

I don't really know exactly what to say about these. On the one hand they are the best photos anyone has ever taken of me, on the other hand I kind of feel like Right Said Fred... But then it also reminds me of the greatest television show of all time, Chris Elliot's Get a Life.

However you look at it here are shots of our USA made Denim and Cords available this spring.

Locked and Loaded


Getting ready for my video shoot last week

Blose got Toe Up





When the old guys are charging it harder than the sponsored kids accidents are bound to happen. Blose got sidelined to office work with me for the next 4 weeks, so kids its time to go out and justify our love.

Cover Shot


This should be on the Skateboard Mag, someone call Kevin Wilkins! Sick old shot of Caleb that the world needs to see right now!

Saturday January 19th


Doors @ 10, skate videos show on the club tv's all night, special Video Presentation at 11:30, no cover + late night Happy Hour!

Fresh set up


Kids Love Skulls decks are in kids! Better Skateboarding makes better skateboard wheels, video for all those who hate success coming soon.

Mass Footage


Chris Blose and Chris Teta, raised the bar at the fullpipes yesterday. Witness Blose's rampage @ Kyma in Annapolis January 19th when we show a little video project we have been working on for Fila.

Mike Mo!


Great video grap from one of the all time greatest Am parts ever! Go out and stop the skate stoppers!

Hello OG logo!


This is a test sample for the custom ink I make for our OG logo (which is actually the second shirt we came out with). My old roommate Alex (who played guitar for one of the greatest bands to ever come out of Annapolis - Moss Icon - its on my music player down below) helped us make these, Thank Alex!

One year ago


I was doing the devils deeds... proof on the claims of being the best inside sales rep ever while serving the evil empire...

It was all a dream...

...used to read Thrasher Magazine, pictures of Alex Picard and his crew of Diamonds that are Green!
* Ill son! My homey, former shop employee at Select, current artist of our new state birds deck series, the once named Frenchy and Snagglepuss, now Bosco has exited himself stage left even onto the hallowed pages of San Francisco's oldest skate rag. You've come a long way from picking up take out meals at Ding How and bringing us Quiznos. Hells Yeah Alex!!!!!!!

The Great Salt Lake

This article on Salt Lake City came out in Automatic a few months back. Caleb had a noseslide photo and a sick switch front board to pop out of death sequence.

Older Heads Know this One


Found the original screen art for the good Ol' Fine Malt Linens T shirt, I think these came out in 2000 before we started making wood.

Sending out an S.O.S.

I talked to a friend today about how we are not doing new years resolutions. I decided I was going to send out New Years hope, I wrote my notes and sent them out as a message in a bottle... seems I'm not alone at being alone.
