You know that girl that is super nice to look at… she also has a great personality…AND… she can cook?! Like her, Send Help is the complete package worth making a commitment to. Todd Bratrud can puke blood on a skateboard and it will look better than most decks out there.

These guys skip to a beat of their own drum and are making a lot of other companies change up their formulas. Different from the norm shapes with great graphics that look better than good up close.

38 days

Well I usually like to put up one of these each month but since the success of HALBA WEEK it kinda got set back a bit. Anyhow who cares right? These posts are weak anyway or atleast thats what i’ve been told. Oh well, you won’t  have to see another one for a while since i’m headed down surgery lane again next week. I’ll see ya’lls in the streets in 6 to 8, i’m out!!

Jeeter Raffin…

Peter hates it when you call him Jeeter. Therefore I highly suggest that the next time you see him drinking at peanuts you say hello to ol Jeeter and buy him a beer!
