jake and i skated the cold off for a few hours, until about 12:45 tonight. something i never knew--jake can film really well with a VX. "from texas," he tells me. still, a very unexpected and positive discovery. we each got a line at the plaza near our house, which is seen in the mandible claw video, when shane kassin does a line there (front shove the long three stair, nollie heel, etc). it's a great place to skate at night--lit up enough to skate, nobody there, no bust factor, no fear of being robbed--it's right off the bridge turnoff. as we were skating, a group of 4 plump latin women, all in their mid- to late-30s, sat down on own of the benches and smoked some weed. only in new york.
