Jay and I go back, way the fuck back. My First published photo was a full page subscription ad for SkateBoarder magazine. I took the photo when I was 14, Jay the belligerent “Radical Little Rat” was 15. Jay often rememberd it as his first published photo too — it actually wasn’t but he remembered it that way, which was always funny to me. It was very flattering. We were kids and we thought we knew everything, like most kids do. I found out about this pool near the Kenter Canyon School yard, borrowed a 35mm camera, invited Jay and PC to come and I’d take some photos. That’s where the documented history of Jay and I started. Over the years we would travel around the southern California basin to skate spots, parties and punk gigs. Jay was the youngest of the original Zephyr crew and I was a year and a month younger than him. I’ve witnessed some pretty incredible shit around him, both positive and negative, he was a wild one that’s for sure.Jay was no slouch, he often surprised me, and others, with his brilliance on and off his board. Even though he was one of the most out of control motherfuckers, he would do some wild shit, and then, could hit you with some science that would have you asking yourself, “Where the fuck did that come from?”. Although he didn’t always act that way, Jay was smart. He was no doubt one of my favorite all time subjects to shoot, he was an inspiration to me and countless others of his generation, and generations to follow. Jay Boy’s legacy and inspiration will forever be unparalleled in the art/sport of skateboarding. When you look at Jay you have to think of the personification of all the DogTown stories that Craig Stecyk wrote and all the DogTown photos that I took: All we were trying to do was capture Jay Adams’ essence. He was really fucked up crazy, and he was really incredibly great, all at the same time. For so many, he was the inspiration, he was the seed. He was one of the originators,and he didn’t do any of it on purpose. He was as spontaneous as they come, and because of that he was one of the sport’s great revolutionaries.-GEF
You are allowed to cry, kick and scream. You are allowed to hurt. You are allowed to cope with your emotions. You are allowed to sleep for days if it makes you feel better. You are allowed to ignore people if you have nothing to say to them. You are allowed to feel things even if others don’t without feeling guilty about it. It’s okay, fuck anybody who says anything otherwise.
1. Don’t try to piss quietly. Nobody in a public restroom thinks you’re knitting in your stall. They came to piss, just like you. And if you have to take a dump, do it. Get over your fear of public toilets. It’ll make life a lot easier.
2. Masturbate. Masturbate a lot. Talk about it with your friends. You’ve got the right to make yourself feel good and brag about it just like all the boys with extra large kleenex packages on their desks.
3. If you want the large fries, get the large fries. Hunger and appetite are nothing to be ashamed of, just human. Don’t ever feel guilty for eating in front of others. You need to nourish your body to stay alive. We all do.
4. Laugh as loud as you have to, no matter if you snort or gasp or literally scream.
5. Fart when you have to.
6. Always remember you weren’t born to visually please others. Forget the phrase “what if they think it’s ugly”. If you think it’s lovely, it is lovely. You wanna wear it, wear it!
7. Speak your mind! You can learn to do so without insulting others or shoving your opinion down other people’s throats.
because it helps to remember this every now and then.
Also did anybody else notice that they removed the “Elton John’s AIDS foundation” logo from Miley’s picture? Fuckin’ agendas everywhere….
I literally threw a mini fit
The fact that they even touched up the woman in the BACKGROUND of the Selena Gomez pic is crazy.
I’ve said this every time it comes on my dash but please also notice that a lot of the women get photoshopped lighter.
And that´s the reason why nobody should try to be that thin, because that thin doesn´t exist in reality.
THIS IS SO SATISFYING TO LOOK AT I LITERALLY STARED AT THIS FOR LIKE 12 MINUTEs
there’s so much racism here with how they change rihanna’s nose
They touched up the woman in the background of Selena’s photo but not the man. (Not that anyone needed to be visually changed but why is it only women?)
