The wizards behind the scenes, prepping the launch codes.

Tensions high.

And a tale of travel outrage.

En route to the pre-party.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
And there he is ...


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Meza's been at everyone of these since Agah, right?


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Tough guys, together.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Add some more meat to that sandwich!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
A soty's caress. Priceless.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
'No way! Is that Ed Duff?!!'


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Cheers!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Smyth mourns his city, unable to provide skateboarding a single indigenous street star.

And this was just the warm up!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
SF-area SOTYs. Shityeah!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Later, at the arena.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
A clutching, squirming kind of bro-ness.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Tightened up, momentarily.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Meza don't wanna go side-by-side with Ali Mills' chin. Can't blame him.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Up in this muffukka, V-I-P!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Habitat's Brennan Conroy with Philly's Dom Travis. Thanks for making the trek, boys!

Weird shit happens in there!

Brad.

The ladies and the Gut.

Double date! Damn!

Bring your beard, if you got one.

Pyramid Country.


Burnout: SOTY TIME

Burnout: SOTY TIME

Water out, water in.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
One-fifth of the O'Side Rhoadeses. Thanks for coming bros!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Yes, it was swanky. And Christmassy.

Burnout: SOTY TIME

And then ... a rumble in the Bronx.

Burnout: SOTY TIME
Burnout: SOTY TIME
Ghoul!!!!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
If you were ready to rock, this was your cue.

P-Stone!


Burnout: SOTY TIME
This kind of horseplay, not a good idea with the Big Dog.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Yep.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Things headed downtown pretty quickly.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Forced back to the stage by a fuckin' robot.


Burnout: SOTY TIME

Burnout: SOTY TIME
And a teddy bear barbarian thing.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Quite a show, but it was surprising that, for all Ghoul's stage craft, their patter was lifted straight from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Which is great, just not especially evil.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Go time.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Neither was long for speechifying this year.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
Short, sweet. Awesome.


Burnout: SOTY TIME
This was a tough fuckin' year and Ishod is a great SOTY.
