1990s Antique Roadshow: Two Alien Workshop Stickers

March 14, 2010

Like many aging skateboarders I got a sticker “collection,” which is to say a ziplock stuffed with dozens of stickers mostly obtained as part of other purchases, and all but a handful of course are from companies that you wouldn’t mention in reputable company. Clive backpacks for instance. The minority of actual good stickers present a problem, because they’re cool enough that you hesitate to plop them onto this month’s board, and eventually you get to a certain point where it’s tough to make the effort to put stickers on anything anyhow. So in the ziplock they sit. These Neil Blender-drawn stickers form the “TimeCode” era are probably the crown jewel of said baggie, alongside some Savier and Seek logo stickers that are certain to haul in thousands on Ebay in a couple decades. I got these second or third-hand from someone who used to work at DNA, and thought I had the Bo Turner one too, but it was either lost to the ages or stuck to something in a fit of pique. Here’s the full set

It burns

Recently overheard:

Mark Gonzales heartily endorses Jim Greco’s new zebra pants: “jim, I hope you never stop man. we love you like a brother. hey do these things come in like size 48”

Bo Turner airs out half the skateboard industry:

On Ryan Sheckler: “[W]atching his show sometimes, it seems that all of his problems stem from two things: pussy and f**ked-up parents.”

On Chris Gentry: “I’ll be honest, the whole white rapper thing to me was the biggest joke ever.”

On Rob Dyrdek: “I knew then that he’d turned into the little prick I always thought he was. You see, he and I were like brothers at one time, and now he’s Hollywood Rob.”

On Cairo Foster: “I don’t care how good you are, you don’t nollie hardflip a bench with Coke bottle glasses, Jnco jeans that are 10 sizes too big, and a huggie pink shirt at the Skatepark of Tampa and not get made fun of.”

On Josh Kalis: “if I ever see you again, I will fucking murder you. Don’t call Sarge and ask why. You know why, you fucking coward.”

On Jason Lee: “Fuck you, Jason Lee.”

On others: “Fuck all of you.”

Amazing. On a less physically threatening note, Quartersnacks, who you really should order multiple videos from right now, posted what is probably the single best Youtube video clip I’ve seen since somebody forwarded me this lion/buffalo/crocodile battle royale, and though it’s more or less made the rounds at this point, it bears watching again, and again and again. And then again later on when you’re drunk at your computer and everybody else has gone to sleep.

Behold the Nandez:

No joke indeed…
