An 89 photo MEGA-post featuring fly-on-the-wall coverage from beginning to end (except when I was skating) of the Toy Machine demo in St. Paul, Minnesota (why did they bill it as Minneapolis?) as the finale of the Zumiez Couch Tour 2010. Kevin is having computer problems, so you will have to wait until his computer is fixed to see his mega-post.
Look how small this plane was. Deanna would be having none of this.

Shameless self promotion for Mr. Briggs. Thought he would stop after he got called out.

God damnit Devin...
This post is too good.
First off, Nick & Collin need to start carding chicks before getting down. Sweet ass Asian party. I need to start checking those out.
Great photos. Looks super fun.
I wish I was a pro skater so I could have times like these. Sometimes.
I like big faces. I bet the dudes were all over that. Does Austin ever get his? I bet he's the only nice guy, other than Dan Lu, which looks just rad.
I'll post more later. This is huge.
I'm hungover. Happy 5th of July.
I found a dope spot behind the Belle Terra on Edinger near Beach. Gotta be creative though.

"Can I have some regular steamed broccoli?"
"these fucking pro skaters think they spartan warriors or some shit!'' the waitress really said something like that
TOY FUR LYPH

I'M FAMOUS NOW. ha ha ha.
can I shamelessly self-promote?
but seriously, here's my toy machine animation:
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on July 5th, 2010 at 07:43PM PST
I thought I was going to pass out I was so excited. I was going to tell everyone how awesome they are but I forgot to. As Ed said goodbye, Austin came up and got on the moving walkway and Ed said, "Hey, there's Austin" and Austin just smiled. It was pretty awesome.
There needs to be a TM pawn convention so we can all hang out in real life.
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on July 5th, 2010 at 08:02PM PST
Ok. I'm gonna comment on every photo. Here goes.
Aren't little planes louder? I guess less people and less waiting to get out.so that's alright.
Next two photos are virtually the same. Uhhh..you can see some cool shit when you're in a plane.
Nice mustache. The hoodie and Boston hat kinda give you that kreeper look. your identity has been revealed.
I give up on commenting every single photo. Anyway, It sucks when restaurants have their dishes pre-made. I guess that's how they get all their shit to taste the same.
Is that Sect on a napkin? Someone sold a napkin with Andy Warhol's drawing of butterflies,sold for thousands. Maybe some mexican busboy came and picked that shit up. worth 49574938572340578 dollars.
damn,Kevin's chest hair. Leo looks like he wants some snuggles.
Austin, wearing a New Era brad 59fifty hat.
I'm wearing a SF giants hat right now. Even though I don't follow baseball at all.
Free shit? I would have brought a backpack and stuffed some things in there for my family. Or to resell or something.trade things.
I saw some of those Zumiez sunglasses at a thrift store.
Those glasses are actually pretty ugly.
X-treme as fuck weight pumping delicous processed as fuck sk8gnar meat snacks. America loves their heavily processed food almost as much as war. $$$$ over powers people's well being.
Nice tackle box joke. made me LOL. Dude,they have twilight toys at Burger King. Eat my fucking kids meal and stare into Robert pattinsons eyes.
It shouldn't be surprpsing how short the demoes are. Zumiez isn't really even about skateboarding,just all the other xtreme lifestyle shit.
So,if a girl were to fuck that one guy she'd see that Wu-tang logo. Bring the ruckus on her pussy.
That one dude is wearing that one Fallen shirt that billy wore for 2008 or something.
That guys felt looking panel art thing is pretty cool. You don't see kids getting creative at Baker Shake Junt demoes or whatever. maybe bring your Zero skulls with you.
You know how mexicans have little shrines,I guess make one of turtle boy. Super.
That guy has some of the worst fucking tattoos. Super lame,bro. Brian Anderson has cool as fuck tattoos though. He's like one of the only dudes who I've been like "holy shit,those are all cool tattoos"
A couple of months ago,I mentioned to my brother "dude,what if you put a dildo on top of a bullriding machine?"
Eskimo kiss was pretty steeeeeeez-e. Dude. I was in the Bay Area in a skatepark,and the kids were seriously saying "Steeze" I though that shit was just a joke. Also "Josiah Gatelynn status". This one kid that was like 9 was pretty insane though.
What fancy dinner did Johnny have?
Big Boy. I wonder if Johnny likes the band Big Boys. Man,johnny was a twig in Good and Evil. He still has massive pop. Then again,Leo does too. But hey,who has a signature Vans shoe and Vans signature clothing line?
Wow,Toy Machine gang bang those girls. Dude,it would be weird boning girls with your friends. I was listening to the radio a while back some talk show. and this guy was tired of his friend asking the caller's girlfriends if they'd like to have a threesome. And they usually ended up doing it despite his wishes. What a retarded friend to have.
Dan Lu looked fucked up with those beers,or sleepy.
*Note: Austin wasn't getting crazy.
Asian lady is a MILF.cool.
That party looks like something I'd be like at and then think to myself "What the fuck am I doing here?"
That adverisement on that plane thing is a bummer. Like those TV's they have at Gas stations...ughhh...
Imagine waking up and seeing your mother making Dan Lu breakfast. "This is your new daddy". You went through 3 last week.
Matt B,pro,and wearing differnet shades of black.

i have been slacking......
Nice to see another commenter. Hello Hemlock Drew.
Where do i even begin? haha. Napkin drawing is awesome.
At the NJ demo, i saw Ed wearing his usual orange trucker hat, but then when he skated he was wearing a white hat.....now i know why haha. to be honest, i saw it on the RVCA blog too haha.
THE FUCKING VIP TENT!!!!!!!!
"Here you go pro skateboarders!! Have some sloppy meat sticks, a lighter, water, starbursts, snickers and reeses peanut butter cups."
"Whats the problem?......Oh, you guys eat real food?.....I was unaware."
What the fuck is going on with those luxurious foods back there? haha
Hyped on the Toy pawns haha
Horrible Tattoos.....i can't even say anymore. Just horrible.
Can't get over that dark chasm. Thanks Ed! haha
Leo loves poking fun at people haha, but Leo is awesome
The dance floor and the lady with the skirt rolling up.....priceless haha
How can one post be so filled with good shit? Blows my mind.
Hope Austin heals soon.
JGonz, is your identity going to be revealed this year? haha
Posted By: Mike on July 6th, 2010 at 10:33AM PST
oh, i also want to say good job to ed for conquering your new jersey demons and getting your tricks in Minnesota
Posted By: Mike on July 6th, 2010 at 10:45AM PST
JGonz has already been revealed:
Posted By: ed on July 6th, 2010 at 12:18PM PST
rather be revealed and speak freely than lurk. personal preference I suppose.
Posted By: DanHengel on July 6th, 2010 at 03:46PM PST
I've grown since then,4 waist sizes and 2 shirt sizes. And a mustache.
Jgonz sighting,2010,gonna happen? Maybe. It's a small world.
Let me find out where Kevin lives....muahahah..
DenHengel doesn't know nothin' 'bout Trollin on the internet.
Mike is right. Nice to see Mr.T shredding the fuck on those demoes. Make those 12 year olds with their milf mom's poop their pants seeing this old guy ripping when their step-dad only drinks beer all day.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 6th, 2010 at 07:20PM PST
OH SNAP THERE'S JGONZ!
I've been AWOL from posting because i've been reading the posts via RSS feeds instead of coming to the site.
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on July 6th, 2010 at 07:21PM PST
Yep,Hemlock,I was like 15. Now I'm near 18.
I've been wondering why you haven't been commenting lately.
Turtleboy's twin and Crayons are two other dudes that come thru every now and then.
Mike,you need a cooler nickname screen name thing. not something like "Mixmaster mikey" or something.lolol.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 6th, 2010 at 09:15PM PST
Yeah, well obviously i'm not going to do the RSS thing anymore, because I realize I need to comment to keep up with the TM pawn gossip. How was everyone's 4th of July? I am visiting my family and we are having fun at the beach. There is a skatepark here but I didn't bring my board.
it's official: mixmaster mikey
Posted By: Hemlock Drew on July 6th, 2010 at 09:25PM PST
hot link :
Welcome back to the party,'Drew.Or should I say, "drewster!?!" Just kidding. Hemlock Drew is a cool enough name.
You can see my 4th of July on my blog. jgonz4ever.tumblr.com
more of my day coming soon. I basicly went to an Amusement Park the whole day and then watched a fireworks display in Santa Clara. Super fun.
How smooth of a plug in was that? Completely shameless.
