Jan. 24th: New Bin Laden Tape Surfaces, Saints-Colts Matchup Set For Superbowl XLIV, Greg Lutzka Conquers Another Medium


Now imagine music going off in the background

I was inspired to make my first visit to the Armourdillo website earlier today after finding a half-soaked CCS catalogue in my letterbox, browsing it and smirking at this Corey Duffel quote:

“They are the ultimate flair company.”

The thinking was, post up a pic of Duffel wearing some of his more ostentatious gear and a tough-guy frown, paste the quote underneath, have another chuckle at that we live in an age where one can say the phrase “ultimate flair company” in an un-ironic fashion, and go to sleep secure in the knowledge that we will start the week with some breezy and half-amusing content. BUT, after visiting the website of Armourdillo – an Australian leathers concern of some description that seems focused squarely on belts and wallets – I was completely blown away by the fact that “the” Greg Lutzka has pointed the prow of his personal brand toward the iPhone app shores with his first videogame. Let’s allow him to explain his unique vision in terms of his own choosing.

dizm is launching a new Skateboarding iPhone app where you can compete against Greg Lutzka in a game of S.K.A.T.E. as music goes off in the background. S.K.A.T.E. features a variety of tricks, ranging from ollies to more technical moves such as frontside bigspins and nollie heelflips.

“dizm S.K.A.T.E. is a fun app that is technical enough to appeal to skaters, but easy enough so non-skaters can enjoy it too,” commented Lutzka. The dizm S.K.A.T.E. (Skateboarding iPhone app) is available for $0.99 from the App Store and can be found by searching for dizm SKATE in the App Store or by clicking here.

Even in the midst of the Great Recession, at 99 cents, somebody has to have the extra banana-skins to have downloaded and battled the i-Lutzka for SKATE supremacy. So a full and let’s face it, glowing review would be appreciated. The only possible knock against this game would be that it’s probably more accurately described as an entry in the fantasy genre because in real life, one cannot hope to compete with the Lutzka.

    The title and the picture alone were enough to make this one of my favourite posts that you ever made, but the write up was amazing. One of my favourite posts for sure.

    I feel you for sure. Funny how sometimes you set out to write something but it just leads to something way better.

    The Quartersnacks Dizm S.K.A.T.E. review — coming soon.

    Also in real life, one can hope to never purchase any Lutzka related gear.

    Whenever I see a Lutzka glam shot I am puzzled by his style. I can’t identify it as any sub-culture I’ve ever seen.
    From rude boy to gutter punk, from rockabilly to asian wigger, from preppy to pirate punk, I feel like I have been exposed to a wide enough swath of the youth culture universe to at least be able to identify which galaxy a particular look hails from.
    I’m seeing hints of ?russian mobster? sleazy heroin dealer? car thief?
    Is it a fad that has not made it to my backwaters?
    I have yet to see a local skater dress anything close to that.

    we have several lutzka clones here in kentucky.

    I’ve yet to see a Lutzka clone either.

    rocuronium- if you keep up this style of descriptive writing Pilot Light should offer you a job as a fellow poster.

    “ultimate flair company” is just too good.
