Summer Beaters

IMG_2495

There are certain days in the Summer when you simply are not allowed to have plans. You roll out of bed sometime around 11:48 to the sound of your cell phone ringing underneath your pillow. You probably fell asleep in the same clothes that you were wearing last night, and most likely you were planning on sleeping off whatever night time antics occurred the previous evening. The cell phone has very different plans however, and is absolutely relentless in requesting that you open your eyes.

When you finally get around to finding the phone and picking up the call, without doubt it is one of your close friends who, unlike you, is already wide awake and in front of your house to pick you up to head down to the beach for the rest of the day. Because it is far too early in the morning to formulate any sort of effective argument as to why you can’t go you roll out of bed, you throw some water on the face, brush your teeth and proceed with going downstairs, grabbing a poptart, throwing on your summer shoes and jumping into the car.

The reason for my narrative (Besides the fact that I just like writing a whole bunch with a generally uneeded amount of extravagance and fluff.) is to speak on the idea of the “summer beaters.”

 

When it comes to the Summer schedule there has to be a shoe/shoes that get worn absolutely every single day regardless of the destinanation and without a second thought. The shoes will usually start off the Summer in great condition: brilliant color, fresh laces. Than by the end of the season they will most likely be fully destroyed with holes, rips, tears, stains, and exsisting in a completely different color than the one they started as. It’s all part of the beautiful process that only comes about in summer…i guess.

I went with 2 pairs of Jordans this year. A pair of Jordan 3 “True Blues” and a pair of Jordan 9 “playoffs”
and in a way I feel kind of bad, They both were completely unaware the amount of pavement, skateboard grip tape, grass, sand, and utter life that they are about to come into contact with the last couple months.

For the Hundredth Time.

At some point last eve, perhaps around midnight or so, a distant corner in the far reaches of the SSB room was lit by the dim yellow glow of a tired old lamp. Hushed whispers punctuated the soft warbling of a Dom Kennedy record in the background. I decided to return to this here forum. It’s been..2 years or so since my last post? I don’t really have any good excuses for not posting. I just got burned out I guess, It’s been a long and involved road, and for some strange reason, I thought that after joining SSB, I would somehow magically become less busy. Of course the complete opposite of that has occurred. but I hope you’ve all been doing well. Despite neglecting my duties on this here particular forum like the wrestling god’s neglect Danielson’s (Daniel Bryan) right to stay healthy enough to return to the WWE, I haven’t been sitting on my hands or partaking in absolute nonsense. I’ve been busy on our YouTube channel. If you haven’t already, check out what we have to offer. I definitely recommend it if you lack randomness/jackass-ery in your life.

check out our collaboration with our good friends Jimmy and josh of SwoletakuTV. We played the “newly weds” game but with our own spin of course. Hope you enjoy and see you again in another 3 years or so…lol jk….maybe.
