The Faction at G's beef&brew

Gavin O'brien of the faction. Kick That Bike ! The first 7" Yesterdays Gone and No Hidden Messages were cool,the releases after that not my cup of tea. That's how it goes, These guys sounded great live compared to the poor recording quality on No hidden messages.

Todd Douglas

Todd , helped get the Misfits to play NCCC in 82, when he went off to Temple he let us skate punks crash at his house. We would street skate all over the city with Todd . Late night skate missions in Philly with Todd were some of the raddest,not because he was the best skater,but he had one of the best attitudes. He did not give a shit what people thought 100% fun no bullshit I could go on..........

Skate Fate

Skate Fate zine put out by "GSD" Garry Scott Davis, for those that don't know he was from OHIO and he invented the "Boneless" as well as influencing much of skateboard magazine graphic design. 

Big Daddy

I find these occasionally in various places, throughout the daily routine. The strange thing is the people that distribute these are so stealthy , I think they might be Ex CIA or  spectres . Printed matter is alive and well.

The epic pig

$700 billlon bailout............ It started with bad mortgage's....... People can't pay back bad debt due to various reasons............ Bank's gave bad loans............... People bought overpriced overvalued homes.............. Bought vehicles they could not afford........... Bank's loaned to anyone that could hold a pen to sign........... Bank's thought when they can't pay back they will take back the home and sell for profit........ Bank's stuck with shit debt............. Bank's to dumb to realize they overvalued homes so customers could borrow more money for said property........... Bank's quickly sell mortgages to other institution's with even less business sense.............. Borrowers salary's not increasing fast enough to pay back said loans ................. Sell house for loss ,resulting in lower market prices.......... Most houses were never worth the amount most people paid for them......... Bank's scratch fore head............. So now we will pay the financial institution's money to cover bad debt......... The people that cant pay still cant pay......... Are they going to loan more money to people that were responsible in the first place??......... It's like someone burned down your house and then you pay them to build you a new one.
