what an amazing lifestyle to be leading. not just from Leo's perspective as a young uprising person in the skateboarding industry, but from Ed's, who has overseen the likes of Kerry Getz, Brian Anderson and others who have completely fallen off the radar, only to re-emerge on Axion shoes (Mike Maldanado). It must be weird to see things come full circle- like some weird flashback induced from too much acid back in the day. All the actions from years previous are then lamented at some show put on by a skateboarding magazine.
I think Phelps deserves the disrespect from Leo. Too many others show him copious amounts of reverence, whereas Leo just gives him these highspeed high fives and makes fun of him. Probably all in fun, but it's good to see. Makes me laugh. That's kind of harsh, I need to mellow out on that.

So many pictures.
"Ed, what is it that you want to see wit so many eyes?"
I just love that Italy Interview, great guy, anyway.
First of all, shame on you SF Locals!
What the f. is wrong with you?
That just seems totaly spoiled, like yeah, next time.
Is it a deja-vu?
Somehow I felt I´ve seen pics of Matt touching boobs before.
These peeps are so porned up.Signs of our times.
Are there any photobooth pics from like 1995 or around that?
I guess they aren´t that revealing.
Youporn and shit messed us up.
Oh, there´s a camera, here´s my uterus.
I can play guitar behind my back, too.
It´s easier then skating switch.
Yogamoshing is for people who are into pilates fisting.
I don´t know many of them.
Jerry Hsu reminds me of some kickboxer guy
called Valuev or something.
He´s a killer in offense, but has no defense at all.
So evertime I see some Jerry slams, it makes me
think, why does this guy skate anyway.
But he´s great, I like him.
Great B.A. was there, showing props.
I shot some pics of him in eindhoven,
He was hurt and not skating at all, but
just to have someone like him around,
gave a good vibe for the event.
One of my all time favs.
Phelps almost ruined it with his speech.
But it was all good in the end.
Is Leo working on some character as his public personality?
Was that a reference to someone or just the booze?
Entertaining performance anyway and that guitar, mmmhhh..
The backstage room looks like the average
eastern europe living room, minus the radiohead posters.
Ed´s cute(?) with the trophy and it suits him.
Borrow it to have sex without taking your of that thing.
God, that was pubertal.Forget it.
Famous peeps stealing beer from famous peeps is always
cool.That´s what the Gallaghers still do on parties, just because
it´s in their blood.Hooliganstyle.I just heard.
These shoes are fake, right?.
I mean, I know there´s a lot of shit out there, but,uh?
Otherwise, that could bring some relieve for your spine,
but please, do them at home.
That blue metal thing is some gay SM toy?
You have to press it between the cheeks till
it releases some funny feeling making gas, I guess.
Is that why the cig is soaked with some brown liquid?
Does that work as some filtration?
America, America (I´m shaking my head).
But then, Chris Cole takes his family out to enjoy
the pleasures of beeing a modern christian.
There´s still some hope.
And, yeah, let´s be stupid.
It will save us.
Posted By: S van on December 14th, 2010 at 07:48AM PST
Oh and while I was sleeping there was some discussion
bout Ed hating people?
Who cares if Ed does it for the money.
I mean, sure, he necessarily does. But to hate people, us, whoever?
I don´t know and I don´t care.I mean I propably support and supported
a lot of stuff that didn´t give a shit about the customers, fans, or even friends, whatever.
As I said, even in times of twitter, I don´t take it for granted that someone replies on your shit, you ask or tell.
So do I buy TM stuff, cause of Ed answering my questions?
Not really, not because of that.
Does Ed answer my questions, cause he thinks I buy TM stuff then?
I don´t really think so.
And maybe it´s part of his business idea or strategy or whatever better word I can´t find.But there´s nothing bad about the way he does it.
If someone would feel beeing manipulated by commenting on his visual offerings here or by even following his kindness, he´s propably better of bashing Kanye on twitter.
And I´m not pointing on people making up the idea here or
the ones who debated about it.
It´s for those who really do so.

Try playing guitar lefty.

looks like the party went well.Congrats LEO!!
Posted By: josiah bangs elissa steamer on December 14th, 2010 at 11:17AM PST
I wonder what BA and ED were talking about?
Posted By: josiah bangs elissa steamer on December 14th, 2010 at 11:17AM PST
Damn I gotta get out of Texas.
Posted By: josiah bangs elissa steamer on December 14th, 2010 at 11:18AM PST
I wonder if Jgonz has something to say bout these pics...
Shoot it, J.
Posted By: S van on December 14th, 2010 at 11:39AM PST
That hollow body looks mighty nice..
Love the photos of Ed & Deanna. Christmas cards for the pawns, perhaps?
BA's hair is goin' on.
A dirty Marlboro & a crushed co2 container? Art purposes?
Posted By: Jacob on December 14th, 2010 at 12:14PM PST
Just woke up.
So. Cole was out with his family ice skating at 4 am? Cool.
Leo looks like he's pretty close to Deanna.
You're gonna have to beat some SOTY ass.
Tony's story reminded me of the song Punk Rock Girl.
There's this guy that plays accordion in a part of town every month. Dude, he totally covered Punk Rock girl on his accordion and he sings to it too. I was gonna tip him,but didn't.
Isn't Josh envious of Leo's guitar?
What's with Jerry and the Chocolate Milk.
Hey,Hsu was in BA's epicly later'd.
I LIEK CHOCOLATE MILK
TSOL? You know,I guess they're like a super famous legend status punk band. But I've never really listened to them. I was gonna download their music like back in 2007 or something but just never did. Whatever. Punk/Grindcrap is different live. People just Mosh/Slam Dance to the snare/bass of the drums accompanied with the who-knows-what-the-fuck chords and singer screaming and shit. That's the formula for getting a group of humans to run into each other even though they're strangers.
Ed should have replicated the actions of that couple in the Metro thing in Vinny's link but inside of the Thrasher photo booth.jk.
I would have been ok with Grant Taylor,Westgate,Rieder, or Heath getting SOTY. I'm still bamboozled about Silas winning and I voted for Guy that one year.
I like Ed's Boo-hoo photo. But hey, Mark Gonzales never got SOTY.
That Be Stupid looks like a Nike SB ad.
It was funny when Leo high fived Jake Phelps then Jake retracted his hand and his faced expressed a stinging sensation in his hand or some shit.
All of my narration probably sounds kweer in real life. You know, since having a vocabulary is totally gay.
Yeah,dude. What the fuck.
You didn't invite Red Ronnie the Italian guy.
"Drugs...and drug blows your mind."
Look at Chris Cole being an actual father and a normal good person.
I like that guy's Dork shoes.
Skater Shoe check!
BA lived in Eureka.
Hell yeah. He said he made pizzas...I wanna know where exactly. Probably saw him then. didn't even know.
Would you really want to bang Elissa Steamer?
Maybe just to get some free Nike Sb's.
Autsin Stephens should be on Gravis. C'mon. Build the most handsome skate team.BLOWIN' IT.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on December 14th, 2010 at 12:14PM PST
Ed is champion of skateboard.
Why you did not text to invite me?
Posted By: RedRonnie on December 14th, 2010 at 12:15PM PST
Sorry, just me again.
Remember, I made an entry for the Thrasher Toy Anatomy Contest?
Well if not, that´s maybe because it wasn´t funny at all,
but the peeps over at Thrasher obviously think so.
Last entry on the site.
And even my chances are slim to none here´s your chance to show some loyalty, even if you don´t agree.
I guess you can vote a bunch o times.So you can vote for others, too.
My victory will be dedicated to the ToyMachineSockTeam.
Posted By: S van on December 14th, 2010 at 12:19PM PST
If having a vocabulary is gay, then I'm pretty gay. Every time I hear a word I don't know I go to dictionary.com, and I get 100s on my vocab tests. Let's start a vocabulary revolution.

Coles daughter i supercute! This was a really great picturepost, thanks for letting us in on the fun Ed!

Basically anything different and out of the norm is Gay.
Let's stay gay.

Got a Germanic looking wurd:
Posted By: Jgonzalez on December 14th, 2010 at 03:21PM PST
I often had german words in the captcha machine.
It makes me feel,
They´re watching and these are hints.
\"We know what you´re doing, son.
Better no talking shit here, we mess you up.\"
All of this will be sold to some corporate power
so that we get more super advertising personalized.
TM has kind of a BatCave, I saw that on google earth.
And there´s this cabinet, with files saying Jgonz, Vinny,
Diggy, Fresh etc.
I mean was BA mexican, or Elisa, or the late, great Bam Magera?
No.But what do we have now?
Leo Romero, all these mexican kids at the demos.
They have pretty deep inside information bout the feelings
of the mexican people so they can expand their strategies.
Thanks to Jgonz.
It wouldn´t surprise me if they would come up with a board
based on the colours of the german flag.
But they won´t fool me with that.
I use the google. I know what´s up.
Posted By: S van on December 14th, 2010 at 03:47PM PST
Yeah, captcha links are catching on!
Posted By: john on December 14th, 2010 at 04:13PM PST
sorry ed. i was gonna go but i hate the haight if you know what i mean. too many hipsters and the vibe of that rvca store is pretty bad. and the soty parties are exclusive so going to the signing would just bum people out.
Posted By: blahhhhh on December 14th, 2010 at 04:54PM PST
s vanity- [kidding] Yeah, I guess what I meant to say was, regardless of how ed feels, we all still enjoy TM regardless I was just trying to invoke conversation. I know if ed thought I was a fucktard it wouldn't make me any less inclined to wear toy machine stuff or buy product. I would no matter what for the style it's done in.I could go on but I won't. 1) because I never know when the next mega post will be and this won't even get read 2) I agree with what you posted lol.
I don't know if you were insinuating that I cared, I just wanted it to be known I like TM regardless of these comments is all and I don't know if you were using round about language in order to say; 'stop fucking caring n00bster'
ok... show your belly button and go to bed.
Posted By: d1ggitydan on December 14th, 2010 at 05:28PM PST
yeah a vocabulution would be nice, john. i'd go with just having everyone just fuckin type correctly or spell shit right though. Most seem not able to handle extensive letters and stuff in those bigger words.
D Dan, dude, no chaka pakuni? thats how it is I guess.
I kind of like "Get Stupid" for the slogan, but it's probably been used elsewhere. Be stupid's good though, especially the first pic of it up there with the cop and that "thing" that looks like Pat's dad......or mom?
Posted By: lunch on December 14th, 2010 at 05:29PM PST
I don't know what chaka pukani means. I kind of feel like I'm blowing it today or something.

Good thing I got it before John shat his pants.

Dude, creepy. Creepy Mario Perez. I keep envisioning Mario (the nintendo character) with a mustache on top of a mustache to equate to the creepiness that is Mario Perez.
and JGonz.....you seem to be a dangleburg. With too much gunt (?) lint.....what the hell is going on young man?
Posted By: Mike on December 14th, 2010 at 10:49PM PST
Everyone reads your comments Digs;)!
Otherwise, we couldn´t reply.
But funny you mentioned the name issue somehow,
I thought about givin me a new name to comment as.

the picture of Ed and Dianna in the photobooth is so adorable. They are my favourite couple. I´ve been watching the beautiful loosers documentary these last few weeks. Probably more than 10 times, it´s soo good! Everytime I see it I see new things that inspire me and it helps me create new and different things. I wish I could buy a toy machine deck that Margaret Kilgallen designed. I am so inspired by her work. Seeing her pictures and her interviews makes me happy, I love it when she says she wants everyone to make things. Stephen Powers says he wants people to be able to look at his work and say "thats mine!", his view is amazing. I tried to find out if alleged art gallery is still there in New York but I could not find anything on the web. Is it still there Ed? I´m going to NY in march for a week and I want to track down something of the beautiful loosers wich I love so much. I´m gonna get your photographybooks when I´m there. Buying them online and sending them to norway is insanely expensive. Can´s wait to get my hands on them.
Posted By: emilie on December 15th, 2010 at 03:38AM PST
Ed! your shot with BA looks kinda like a mugshot! It made my day dude(i recently snapped my deck and realized that im very dependant on skateboarding, it kills time and is fun to do alone, or with friends) Its even fun when you slam and break something!:)
