I’ve always liked watching skaters and I always will.
Wait, wait, wait! Not THESE kind of skaters!
Yeah that’s better
Here’s an incredible video of Kilian Martin and his skateboard, in the most lovely city to do skateboarding tricks in.
And yes we all love skater boys and we all love it when they fall down, too. Here’s a funny funny video about Most Awesome Skateboard Fail Reactions. (warning: since there are so many falls there is really graphic language because if you can’t cuss when you fall I don’t know when you can)
But there’s one particular skater boy I want to tell you about.
His name’s Billy. Billy Purgatory.
I freakin’ loved this book. It had some of the best, most beautiful prose I’ve read in a long time. Here’s my video review of the book (it’s really dark because I could either film the video in a dim room or in a room with noisy kids so I chose the dim room).
Billy Purgatory’s cool and interesting. He cares about nothing and about everything. He’s a good person, and you’re rooting for him from the first page. The book is also cool because there are vampires, Time Zombies, and even Greek mythology woven in there! I highly recommend this book, and suggest you go check out the website. Also, the author, Jesse James Freeman is delicious on twitter and Facebook so don’t miss out.
Have a great weekend! And may you always land your jumps.
