Industrial Tendencies

YouTube Tuesday 070828

Get your grinder and some steel for this week’s installment of YouTube Tuesday. It’s time to explore some bands that fall under the broad catagory of industrial or at least have industrial influences. See if you can tell who influenced whom among this small sample set. Remember, a mind is a terrible thing to taste.

Under the Bridge Downtown

Monday Cover 40 - Chip Treadwell

What do the Red Hot Chili Peppers and this week’s Monday Cover skater, Chip Treadwell, have in common? Not much but under the bridge downtown is where Chip drew some blood, no kidding. Chip was determined to land this 7-stair and land it he did. Note: 7th step out of frame.

Congratulations Chip!

Serendipity Happens

Monday Cover 39 - Kevin Kowalski

If you are thinking about breakfast, well here’s a little Bacon. Actually he’s not so little and he shreds just like your hash browns. It’s this week’s Monday Cover skater Kevin Kowalski. This fakie to frontside tail stall caught our attention. Kevin has style for miles and it shows. Mr. Bacon must be proud.

Congratulations Kevin!

Sergie - Bowl Xfer @ Vancouver

It’s official, the Vancouver Skatepark is open and the early feedback is it’s fun.

Sick, sick, sick! See some pics of the action after the turn. EPM Out!

Tags Be Gone

Vancouver Tag Removal

Earlier this week, a few of us went up to Vancouver to help remove tags from their new skatepark. Around 100 different tags had to be removed before the soft opening on Friday. MC, Doug, Shawn, Rich and the local contract crew spent the better part of two days working on tag removal alone. Here are a few pics from the clean-up effort along with our reward session for helping out.

Duane - RnR @ Pier Park

It seems the lads from Upland were enjoying themselves during the Pier Park stop of this year’s Trifecta. Duane was in classic form with this rock-n-roll in the square bowl. Note the position of his back foot. See another pic after the turn and don’t forget to click on the pics for a larger view.
