It Never Rains in Portland

If you haven't heard about Portlandia yet, you should first watch and enjoy this incredibly accurate portrayal of the fine city I call home. It's true, this place is a freak show, which is what makes it such a great place to live, and I'm happy I've come here to retire. Speaking of patently Portland things, yesterday I finally checked out the new DIY 'crete in Southeast. When I heard about this place (via the Mercury) it made me realize just how detached I've become from skateboarding in Portland. Seriously, how ridiculous is it that I only found out about this spot, mere feet from the former location of this…

It’s still Spring…

...but all the sun hasn't made the "kids" any smarter. Ben and I have been on a serious skate mission (though today I took off to build galleries and do real work). Yesterday we hit up Vancouver, which is typically known for being over run with little ones. As expected it was, but these kids just so happened to be especially entertaining. Since I had just gotten a new camera (mine crapped out after less than a month but they let me trade it for a new one) I figured I should probably film. Here is the result.
