Nat shakes things up on Sam in '66.

I'll save my rant about the irrelevance of the ASP for another day but I feel compelled to say this: Hey guys,this is called "style" and in your quest to get bigger air or spasm the wave apart, the only thing you're displaying is your lack of the aforementioned. Take notes.

Next Generation

My wife took the above with her cell phone as Thing 1 and I strolled along the wall at one of my favorite NH beach breaks. We did a little fam jam up to Portsmouth and I detoured us so that I could see what it was doing. There were only a couple of guys out doing what they could in the chop. Thing 1 enjoyed watching them, exclaiming, "Boom!" every time a wipe out occurred.

Afterwards, we stopped at Cinnamon Rainbows and I brought both lads inside. I promised Thing 1 that I would hook him up with a wetsuit and boogie board this summer so that his initiation into the joys of wave riding may begin. I can't wait.

Left Overs

Forgot the damn camera. Ah well.

I eschewed the Thanksgiving go out. From what I hear, it was a bit bigger and had a bit more power, however, I had a hell of a time with the Friday clean-up. Knee to waist, light wind, clean as a whistle and the Mini-Zombie made its case, yet again, for becoming the favorite of my massive two board quiver. Speaking of which, my wife and I just bought a house, so my next Fineline purchase has been sidelined...unless of course my sponsorship request has sparked a bit more interest. Anyone?

Special bonus was the sight of someone backing into a cop car in the parking lot at the local. That's gotta put a damper on your day.

S*#@t yeah, it's cool.

I was somewhat pissed after I got the new Boston Spaceships album and then read that Bob Pollard had announced it was the last one. Those records are, to my mind, the best of his post Guided By Voices output, so WHY in the name of all that is holy...

OH. That's why.

The new album from the classic GBV line-up drops on January 1st and I. Am. Happy.
