Weekend At Portland's - Guest Poster: Isaac bunbaclot Newton pon da rite tang, rasta

Went on a trip to Portland for a week a while back this summer. Not sure why I'm posting this over a month after the trip but all of the pictures came off of Chris' camera and he enjoys getting irie so that probably has something to do with the delay in time. The last time I was given the green light on a guest road trip post (if you recall the road soda pictures on the Pleasant site) it was deleted after a few days and someone left a comment saying something along the lines of 'worst post ever' so I'm feeling a bit timid sitting in front of the computer and a little stressed trying to layout a blog post (I've been out of school for a bit so the run-on sentences will be heavily peppered throughout this post). I would appreciate it if you would leave some comments and please go easy on the hating (there's a lot of that going around right now and I'm one of the few who doesn't love that type of crowd, so go easy). There are a lot of pictures so I'll be posting the trip in sections. First and foremost I am going to come out and say that the act of skateboarding is completely fucking boring so there will absolutely be no pictures of skating or any of that bullshit 'round heeyah, kid. First post is going to be all Joey and he's not exactly the best looking guy in the world so bare wit me hollatchaboiii.
As I said before, Joey Brains ain't exactly up on his pretty boy swag
Contrary to popular belief; smoking and drinking does make you look cool

Follow him on Quitter

I present to you, Mr. Lomax. "-Please, call me Bernie." On the ride up Chris Miggles' coke white volvo broke down in Wolf creek or Coyote creek. A sign read Coyote Creek and Wolf Creek with arrows pointing in opposite directions so it's pretty obvious we were in shits creek territory. Straight redneck white boy turf. I think we were rollin right up on shits creek at this point and Jacky and I were a tad (taken with a grain of salt of course) concerned with Joe's well being. Not sure if you can tell from dis picture but nigga is like sweatin profusibably at dis point, son.
Trader Joe with guests (starting from left to right) Jack, Isaac

Joekowski with blog(uette??) guest Molly. Notice the PBR with the sissy straw (prolly like how that shit waz meant ta drink, do). And if you watched that Bukowski link anywhere past 1:12 you're probably conceded or some sort of self-proclaimed chill artists so you really doesn't matter in term of the grand scheme of things anyway.

Jupiter Joe

Bernie
For those in the know: Scummy Joe seen here with young Miggs. And if you watched that last link past 1:54 you probably don't have much of a life (like your humble narrator) and I hope you're enjoying these low-blow pictures of an old alcoholic friend of mine. I know I am. I'll drink a beer to that, so long as it's not some girly Pabst-esque kind of whatwfabakgdafgkadb

It ain't Joey Brain but it'll havta do. Jack GrayDonJuan in full flava

Camel Toe Joe. I think we were still in Cali Swag District at this point so you can probably just ignore this one.

Mr. Lomax doin his thang in tha world, bebe

If you're calling ABD on this one its actually slightly different than the first picture. If you're actually really concerned with ABDazzles then (not than, idiots) you should actually look into what has been done down the SRHS eight stair and probably never go back to it. More Portland pictures to come in the future (I would say near future but what with the skateboarding being on the internet these days that would mean three hours from now) and I heard something about a tour video in the works. The dudes on this trip either smoke weed or aren't all that bright to begin with so not more than (and NO not then) likely I'll be the one having to capture and edit all of the garbage that will eat up even more memory off of my computer.

The above is courtesy of rude and crude Isaac Nielsen. Please do not be offended or suprised by his guest post. Here's something to cheer you up; this little video made my day. Alice, the Cheshire Cat and a caterpillar doing Three 6 Mafia raps. Very well edited and put together. If you don't know about the PWBC , you do now:

intermission

Back to business...

I apologize for not updating the blog recently. School is nuts; makes you go crazy and takes up a lot of time. I think I'm gonna start calling Sonoma State "cali fag district" (please do not catch feelings because I used the fag word) in homage to all the fruity clothes that guys wear there and also because we all love that hot new slumper "teach me how to dougie", by Cali Swag District. Whats up with all this jerkin' rap? I hear Cali Swag District is from Victorville, California. If I lived in Victorville I would probably go crazy and start a jerkin rap group too...
Hot new clip and crazy photos are soon to be dropping in the next week.
For now, some flicks from the other night. They're really small so you can't click on 'em to make 'em smaller. Gotta change the settings on my camera...
Wes in front of the local traphouse:
How artsy can I get? Pretty goddamn artsy:
Look at Wes's technique on this slappy back smith... tweaked foot!!
Steelo so classic that I'm gonna hook yall up wit a "double dose":
Taildrop into the Riley Street "bank"
We out here smobbin' through the bushes:
Kickflip at the cement plant banks:

As an added bonus, Im adding the video for Sippin' On Some Sizzurp by Three 6 Mafia and UGK. I had forgotten about this one. Check out how everybody in the video gets hooked up with baby bottles of "dat lean". Has anybody ever tried drinking Purple Drank? I did it once and the hangover the next day was definitely not worth it. But then again, I'm not a rapper and I don't like feeling like I'm about to fall asleep all day off that sizzurp and cali weed. Project Pat, one of my favorite people in the whole wide world, sings the hook. I also love Pimp C's line "Hydro-co-done on a hands free phone". A hands free phone musta been quite something back then.
And then we got the remix video, "Purple Punch", featuring the Diplomats. Juicy J is, astoundingly, wearing a West Coast Choppers bandanna in the video. Bad swag choice my man, but you still my boy. I also think that Jim Jones of the Diplomats may be one of the worst or most annoying well-paid/popular rappers out there right now. Anybody care to agree with me? Also, why was the best rapper in the Diplomats crew, Cam'ron, excluded from the video?

Oh and on a side note, I don't have a Twitter account, I just say "follow me on twitter" to people because thats what assholes/celebrities with big egos, and rappers, do. I mean, I'm an asshole, but at least I'm just being sarcastic!!
