stuck in limbo

i'm trapped in winter haven until the weekend, but i'll be in gainesville by sunday, if all goes according to plan. until then, i'm going to start posting some of my favorite parts of all time, starting with jason lee from a visual sound.



in my top 5 skaters ever. the line at 1:50 with the back 180 to fakie manny and then 5-0...perfect trick selection. i hate dudes who do lines with really techy tricks, but the tricks don't make sense with one another. it's all about how it all comes together. jason lee understood this.

SPECIAL NOTICE!

it's been down time for a while, but fuck that shit. mandible claw is back in action. mandible claw 2, coming soon: THE SEARCH FOR MANDIBLE CHIN.

get your panties off the floor, time to do some skateboarding!



PS new look for the site. like? hate? meh?

I could feel his muscle tissues collapse under my force. It's ludicrous these mortals even attempt to enter my realm.

an explanation

i realized that some of you might not know a few things concerning the future of mandible claw. this website is going to be taking a drastic turn in the coming months, because i am moving to new york city for grad school. i'm coming back down to stuart in the next few days, and will be in gainesville soon, but in august i'll be here for keeps.

so--the main focus of this website will obviously shift toward new york. but mandible claw agent cornell ritter will be keeping us posted on all things gainesville, and vince will be reporting in from his adventures in germany. we're expanding a bit.

right now i'd like to formally welcome jake ireland to the mandible claw family--i'll be living with him in the fall, and i'm sure he'll be lending his motion graphics skills to whatever future projects are in store for mandible claw.

in the meantime, hit me up for a DVD, and i'll see everybody soon. over and out.

skated the banks yesterday. the ledge on the bank is so damn hard to skate, jake and i worked our asses off to front 50-50 it, and i also got a front noseslide to fakie. some random goon shot a photo of jake's fifty and emailed it to us. found a bunch of other spots just skating around. we ran into the 561 crew, good times had. today while jake was at work i found this insane park on the hudson river, huge tranny all over the place, and a pool with 6 foot shallow, 13 feet deep. legit pool coping the whole way around. skated the pool for hours with some local rippers--dudes here can rip! tomorrow is a free dan deacon show. this is an adventure.
