his goodbye to skateboarding.
PS I feel I have to explain here, cory. so tonight, i skated for the first time in a month because my back's feeling a little better. anyway, cory and i went to the park, where we were battling the same trick on the hip, a fakie inward big heel--jimmy carlin's trick. i gave up and tried other stuff, but cory kept at it, and eventually we started saying mantras before each try--like, "this is for nate sherwood" or "this is for evan hernandez" or "this is for ragdoll." then it turned into various actors, and eventually to kevin bacon. and whenever we invoked kevin bacon's various roles in movies, we got really close. so finally, cory landed it with a kevin bacon blessing, and i landed an impossible right after, also by the grace of kevin bacon.
