"Unemployable" Book Release Party Photos

30 years of hardcore skateboarding. Can you believe that? Globe has been around for deep. Globe along with Dwindle Distribution have left a mark in skateboarding. Hosting legendary contests such as the Globe World Cup and Thrasher’s "Slaughter at the Opera House", landmark videos such as Rodney vs Daewon, Cheese and Crackers, and even produced several S.O.T.Y.’s.   So the Hill brother’s put together a book with a chronology of the brands’ history. Last night was the release party. Check out some photos. –Joe Hammeke
