OG Skate Nerds

Posted by: apple

Two of the original alt.skate-board and #skate nerds, who started Journal magazine (no, not the skart mag that it is now) got some photos on their flickr pages. Rick “rique” Valenzuela (still in Cambodia?) and Jeff “omae” Moynihan (sXe in Thailand). Where’s Wookie’s flickr page?

    Yes, I am alive and nerding a flikker account, but from Little Rock, Arkansas, Middle America.

    Skart mag? OG Journal ain’t no baby daddy. Don’ got nothin’ to do with that. I don’t think that that was such an intuitive, superb name to begin with. Really, it was named that only because I have a news fetish, and the other nerds humored me. Why a new mag would want that name is beyond me.

    Why else? I followed a girl out here, who came out here for a job. Cost of living’s decent though. I staved off that working shit for four months. Now I’m back up in the news nerdery.

    “sXe in Thailand?” anyway i’m still here in thailand. back in january i was, according to vern, like a couple blocks away from apple’s (or is that, appel…hmm) house, but had no idea.

    oh well.

    you can come out to thailand and hang out with some of your dutch bus-driving countrymen on their asian vacations. fun, no?
