Baked in Bakersfield

Posted: August 12, 2010


In accordance with Summer, the Deathwish tour begins.


We convened in the Baker Boy's parking lot in North Hollywood.

 


Liz started feeling the pain early on.


Poor attempt at a group photo, ultimately abandoned.


Had to swing by Antwuan's for his toiletries.


Now
we can start this thing.


He wanted a group photo at the homestead. He's sentimental like that.


Quick jaunt up the grapevine.


Bakersfield's Big City Skatepark.






Trick alleys formed promptly, but it was kinda dark to shoot action.


One new trend in teen-dom I noticed this time out - lots of shirts with the F word on them.


The giant ear hole trend continues unabated. Everywhere we went kids had crap stuck in there.


While the rest skated, Antwuan worked the perimeter in more of a hands-on marketing capacity.


A crowd followed him wherever he went.




Hah-hah-hah-hah-harrgghhh!




The baked part.


Rick, the owner, in his custom hot-rod.


Rad.


Several kids made the team homemade T-shirts, including these honorary Shake Junters from Lake Elsinore.


They drove 12 hours just to kick it. Real cool.




Now all he needs is a helmet for his lungs.


Jim signs a fingerboard.


It was a nice start.

Two covers heating it up this month: Raven Tershy nose grabbing a back tail way over vert at FDR and Figgy getting crooked down a 24-stair monster. Tons more Stay Flared tour highlights inside, 20 pages if you're counting. Other travel tales include an epic Dubai mission for We Are Blood and the Asphalt Yacht Club voyages to Hawaii. Tom K and Frank Shaw both get the Heads treatment and music-wise we got interviews with Morrissey and Slayer, so that's worth the admission price alone.
