Randoms: Skatopia Skatepark '77

Not much going on in my part of town. Thought I'd share this for the simple fact that I'm kinda stoked on how hot Jane Pauley was back in the day.

Looks like the weekend will be too cold for a campout, so instead we're having a night filled with activities! Come out this Saturday the 28th and skate with the 5boro Team and enjoy a cookout and movies on the big screen after dark. We're even breaking out the timers and having races down the snake run. The fun will get started around 5pm, so dress warm and we'll see you there!

Filmer Fridays: Classics Edition

This first video I swiped from White Nate's Youtube videos. It's exactly what it's labeled as, random skateboarding clips. But parts of it remind us of the days when the "park on Emerson" was actually an indoor park... and not all that good.

The second video is a promo montage from a Jacksonville skateboarding site from yesteryear... one of the O.G.s bringing the masses of skateboarders together on the net before BusStop ever existed. I'm talking about Skatejax, and a little birdie told me that site owner Yousef Hussein just might be bringing it back. Cross your fingers on that one.

Tony Hawk: Ride - Out Now

I thought this game looked dumb at first but I think this dog changed my mind. Anyone else around here get it? I want to play it.

New Skatepark Coming to the Downtown/Springfield Area?

Once again thanks to the excellent Urban Jacksonville blog, I feel enlightened and in the know. Joey Marchy recently updated with a post about proposed city plans for parks in the downtown/Hogan's Creek area, and I found this noteworthy bit of info:
  • The McPhearson & Schell Park Concept shows a skate park, creek expansions, a play ground and a fountain.
