Outtake Tuesdays Vol. 5

Taking out the trash again for the fifth time. Mr. Leon brings you another batch of clips not suitable for "Ground Control." We're making a time bomb over here because Mikey Leon is about to blow up!!!

Ta Ha

One great thing about video premieres is that it's one of those rare occasions that brings hundreds of people that you never see enough together, in one place, at one time.

Last night, I had the opportunity to make it through and see all the homies, literally, all the homies thanks to Don Luong's masterpiece, Ta Ha

I love you Ta Ha skate film by Don Luong.

Early bird gets the worm. Except, we just got rained on.

Got the money spot to keep dry.

Ryan was posted at the real money spot.

Dr. Fresh made his appearance. Fashionably late of course...

Photo bombing!

Barge it!

"This ain't no meet and greet!"

Adrian throwing up gang signs.

The audience waiting patiently. Where's Waldo? Top left.

Commence rippage!

No sir, we thank you.

 Woot woot!

Unleash the beast.
Ta Ha, bitches.

A great video. Fist pumps all around!

Sasoe! Adrian was blown away. You can see it in his face.

Somebody was starstruck. : ) I gotta give a major shout out to Don Luong for coming through with one of the sickest, most wholesome homie videos of all time. So anticipated and long awaited, but straight gnarly regardless. Worth the wait for sure. Dude definitely pumped me up to get to work on my never ending project...

As far as independent videos go, Ta Ha will never go forgotten. Alec Jamir set it off right with a few flips into handrails. Ben Fisher surprised everyone with his banger at Cherry park. He even managed to front board a big ass handrail amongst all his technical manual madness too. Ta Ha was also nicely spiced with H.B. and L.B. parts, you better not miss Mikey Leon up in that piece! Saying, "Derrick Wilson killed it!" is an understatement. Note Hollywood sixteen. Same goes for Mr. Davenport. Note the impeccable handrail skating, dude clearly put on his gnar boots for this one. But for some reason, Brian Price had one of my favorite parts. Definitely a memorable one. Something about the creativity sprinkled with the rasta type tune flowed nicely. All embracing, Ta Ha will be one to remember. Support the Furnace heads and go cop your very own copy as soon as you can!

After the premiere we did our stomachs right by hitting up one of my favorite food spots of all time...

Roscoe's Chicken 'N' Waffles. What's good!?

Everyone got the country boy. Three chicken wings and waffles. : 9

Ta Ha premiere then Roscoe's. Last night was a good night.

Build A Spot

Some coverage of our latest endeavor. Everyone teamed up for the build a spot for the greater good of skateboarding.

First off it was about spot scoping more stairs.

More hubbas.

New Furnace graphic. Go get yours!

Remember this picture?

Well, look at this picture. It seems like every time I go skate I see another spot go...

Fake McDonald's for commercial purposes.

Both these guys got served up skating this rail. Thing is dangerous.

Lurked on another up and overs spot.

More hill bomb-age.

After which we commenced build a spot!
Material materials.

Gettin' to work.

Lots of work.

And sweeping.

Fuck you mother nature.

After a full days work, this is what we came through with. Look at that butter ledge on that smooth, clean ground!

My attempt at an artsy Bones advertisement.

From Hollywood To The Valley

Missioned out to the land of freaks and geeks some two weeks back and made our way into valley land that same day.

A beautiful sight isn't it? I'm referring to the fact that traffic is actually flowing near L.A. Not talking about that skyline...

Eat shit going up it!

Bomb countries not hills. Josh meant to burn out his shoe by the way.

Josh let this kickflip effortlessly glide up to his feet.

Korea town hubba. Such a classic.

Damn bikers. Angle iron me please.

Schools in East L.A. promote graffiti. Just look at that bomb! Whatever it says has nothing to do with the spots actual location by the way. ; )

When the gate's open the spot is a lot easier to skate.

Mikey doing everything in his power to avoid the responsibilities of filming a video part.

L.O.G. anyone? Stands for: ledge over gap.

Josh is still on that 24 hour ghetto workout program.

Mikey: "Should I skate this spot?" Josh: "Naw, Illz just brought you here so you could sit down."

That first half is freshly unknobbed. Get to work people!

Josh gettin' comfortable on them switch boosties.

Where kids are sentenced to the same school for their entire lives.

This so called, "school of the future" had no good spots to offer. : (

Unless that is, you're trying to get gnarly.

I mean, really gnarly. Like, skull-high rail gnarly.

Josh and me ended the day going dumb hard at Fatburger. Man didn't claw his way to the top of the food chain to eat tofu. Am I right?
