RIP Josh Link


One of my best friends Josh passed away yesterday. Weve known eachother for about 15 years. First met at his parents house. I had a blonde afro and a big silver bubble jacket. He thought I was a thug until I opened my mouth and voiced how I was siked that he was Jewish too. Hes like this guys a teddy bear hes no thug. We had such an awesome friendship we could tell eachother anything. Even if it was harsh we knew it was with love. An incredible DJ and an amazing friend. Smiles and good times whenever hes around. We had some crazy and late nights in the Houston St apt. It was the size of a closet and I would stay over there quit often to eliminate the train ride home from work. Road Trips. Stopping at a fireworks warehouse last year Josh says... and I quote " I only want to get like bottle rockets and firecrackers.YEAHHH RIGHTTT!! An hour later the vehicle is filled to the top with about 800 dollars worth of explosives. Listening to music, filling up the ipod. Going out at night. A Tim McGraw cologne release party? Dude this stuff smells like cow shit and leather boots. We both had a man crush on him.Seinfeld,Gossip Girls,Transformers. nerd alert nerd alert. hahaha. Sooo many memories my mind cant even think of right now.
.Man Im gonna miss him so much my heart is numb. Ive never felt this way in my life. There is another angel up in the skies. His name is DJ Josh Link and hes playing bangin tunes for everyone to smile and dance to.
I love you man and will miss you an infathomable amount.

Vans Coastal Edge Block Party Virginia Beach

The 2nd annual Vans x Coastal Edge block party took place this weekend. Always an awesome time when fellow Vans employees come out from the West coast to show love. Mr Dave Durfey our New England VM came and swooped me up and the drive began. Random run in with Denny(one of our reps)on the road. Stopped and chatted for a second. Fun event, lots of people. Team signing from Cardiel, Alva, Massimo Cavadoni and even Rowley. Cards playing dice games with people, Rowley playing games of skate in confined spaces with kids. Fashion show, mini ramp, music, brrrrs, a dude with a fake back tat that says hottie = Good times!!









Kids these days. Warped Minds and Sense of Fashion

We had the Warped Tour here on LI on July 18th. Stopped by for a little bit to check out the scene. Saw one of the most positive hard working people Mr. Bob Provost who works on the events side for Vans.
Interesting scenes; Lack of clothing, Body paint messages, medical tent filled with crying little girls, random cameo from Little Jon, and 3OH3. You guys might have just picked up 2 new fans.
challah atcha boy girl?

ITS MY BIRTHDAY

YES YES. Today I turn 30. Pretty siked about this actually. Feeling good Feeling great. Fresh dressed feeling like a million bucks.

Monday night bowling

Stones and Bones. Back on the lanes. Its been a while since I have been in a bowling league. For some of you that dont know, I used to be an avid bowler since I was around 4. Leauges, Tournaments the whole shabang. Your reading a blog from the 1991 New York State Champion right here. Thats right. So I guess bowling is like riding a bike for me. Sometimes you hit a bump in the road but most of the time its flowy. Kids got a 220 average right now. Not to shabby. Call me Sargent Striker. So siked to be bowling again.

4th of July Beach Bums and Fireworks

4th of July is one of my favorite days of the year. Big fan of fireworks. Ask me what my favorite smell is. The smell of fireworks. The day started off with good friends and relaxation at the beach for like 5 hours. Cruised back to Lisa and Stevens house for a little BBQ then off to see the fireworks in the city. If youve never done this before get ready for insanity. The streets are mobbed with thousands of people. Not for people with social anxieties. After the fireworks we went and partied at the Maritime hotel. A great day!!!

PA all day amish friends and farms

Just did a 5 day trip all over PA all the way to Pittsburgh. Man is it far away. Lots of driving. Great scenery. Farms for days corn as far as the eye can see. Horse and buggies amish town and cities with some crazy ass names such as: Titsville, Intercourse, Bird in Hand, Blue balls. Really? Driving through the mountains is super nice.
