i've discovered something. sean connery has actually stopped aging.
here's a picture of him in 1988.now here he is again, in 2008.
that's twenty years of difference, yet he looks the same. 20 years ago, i was in diapers.
i hope he's the next bond.

tony danza was a professional boxer. his record was 9 to 3. all ended in a knockout, one way or the other.
and i learned that paul robeson was better than all of us. he was an actor, an all-american, professional basketball player, he was multi-lingual, he was a writer, a lawyer, and a concert singer, and oh yeah, helped influence america's social justice policies.
what have you done in your life?

from the wiki page:
Jacques-Yves Cousteau died on 25 June 1997 in Paris, aged 87. His death was strongly felt in the United States, where he was one of the most popular Frenchmen. He was buried in the family vault at Saint-André-de-Cubzac in France. An homage was paid to him by the city by the inauguration of a "rue du Commandant Cousteau", a street which runs out to his native house, where a commemorative plaque was affixed. He also loved cats.

first person to answer this gets a limited edition mandible claw t-shirt. email your answers, along with t-shirt sizes, to firstname.lastname@example.org. this is it:
what was the name of the very first mandible claw family video (before it was called mandible claw), back in stuart, made in 2003? first answer wins. anyone who was in the video--will, fogt, charlie, and me--cannot answer.
we'll be doing a couple of these. the next one will be a little more accessible. good luck!

the camera light's sort of broken. a never-to-be-spoken-of-again skater's board hit it, and now you have to tie the battery down to keep it in. rad!
good news, though--today, we got shawn out of his girl- and studying-induced skate coma, and he filmed two tricks, one of which is a serious banger. and erik got all wobbly on a manual pad.
i'm headed back to stuart on tuesday. if you're there, get ready to film!

but it's finals time, and i have to finish two final projects for film classes. guess what one of my professors said when i showed him a rough draft--that it seemed like it was made just for skateboarders, and it wasn't appealing to anyone else.

so you've all watched the video, and you found it out's a promo (though a 20-minute badass promo). so that means we have until august for the real video. so, to all you rat bastards out there: this summer, we're filming, got it? teak, i'm talking to you, buddy!

actually his b-day is wednesday, but today was designated his birthday session. we found a new quick spot--you trick up a sidewalk then trick down a legit gap into this crusty abandoned building. everybody got some tricks there, and we hit a couple other spots too. we logged over a minute of footage in all today. good stuff.

the premiere went great. scott's house was so full that people were literally piled on one another. i feel bad for adam, another dude who lives there--he had to wake up at 5 am--because people were screaming. when it was done, we went to the lux to watch it on the big screen. the sound got kinda messed up there, and the crowd was maybe a third of at scott's, but it was still fun. though the next premiere will have nothing to do with the lux. we're going for the hippodrome.
