The graphic design professors from the college here were just over in Sweden checking the new Love park out. I've never asked if either of them skated.

No matter what the thing is, people will be against it, especially in public meetings. The local newspaper does a retrospective column with old stories and it's amazing some of positive things people have protested, including this huge park with playgrounds that everybody uses, a fancy old folks home, developing hiking trails thru the woods, etc.

It's fascinating (and not surprising) that a foreign country took a much more serious interest in skateboarding in a US city than the city's local government has over the decades. There is no way in hell a reverse of the project could happen.

The Sole Tech sale was a little surprising, but not unexpected. They seem to have found a good group to partner with. Although I imagine most buyouts sound cool at first.

Sheep was vegan, but they also had meat shoes. They filled a unique spot and the Last Resort comparison is appropriate.

Those Brian Sumner's sold, too. There must be some crazy stories about Adio.

I'd like to see the books for Alien Workshop and Habitat.

I'd keep éS, rebrand Emerica (we're keeping the green, but ditching the boat shoes), and close up Etnies.
