after what seems like eons, heres a small update.
lotsa stuff going on behind the scenes. best check (and like!) my facebook page or just stay alert.
lots of people think that shooting skate-photos is simply going out and pressing a button. but no, theres more. forcing people to do stuff they dont want to, laying in the dirt and giant dogs trying to eat your face. this day had it all.
but first things first: preparation of the spot. Johannes unscrews the rail while Lukas checks the fabric of his shirt. #teamwork
sometimes you just gotta jump on your bike and join a random session somewhere. especially if you get the chance to smell the sweat of handsome bastards like Julian. Continue reading “dorking around.”
i think i already covered this on this blog once or twice, but its always great to be reminded that theres nothing better than a concert in a steamin hot and humid place when its already too warm outside. yesterday was no exception. the amazing BHF , Petrol Girls and Remedy played a show at the Sub Graz.
BHF somewhat reminded me of the likes of Have Heart, but i am terrible at all things music related so maybe i am completely wrong. loved their show. The Petrol Girls played great Riot Grrrls inspired punkrock, but i had to go outside after 3 songs because it was simply too warm. kudos to the bands that played in that heat. sadly, i didnt take any photos during those first 2 bands because i was waaay to busy acting like a cool guy and looking good, or short: i suck. at least listen to a few songs of those 2 great bands. next time you see me, feel free to slap me. then again, if you look at my crappy photos you might as well be relieved.
Remedy played an amazing show all around, but the 2 bonus songs blew everyone away: both featured great guest singers, first one was “i believe in a thing called love” by the darkness, second one “decaptacon” by le tigre. goddamn that was great.
sorry for my incredibly noisy/dark/blurry shots, blame my old ass camera. if you wanna see better shots, better send me some money. or hatemail. fine with both.
due to the tragic event 2 weeks ago, goskateboarding day in Graz was moved to this sunday.
quick recap: it was damn hot, and fun. no photos here, sorry. just remember a group of guys skating together, sweaty, dirty, happy, surrounded by pissed off drug dealers, bums, and flies. also, Phil Gosch won the Game of Skate. consistency, good looks, women, money, he has it all.
this motivated some guys so much that we went street skating afterwards. Lukas Oswald had some open business with the Resowi-ledge that had to be settled. watch him fly here:
mile me deaf played a great show at the Sub in Graz yesterday. there were 2 other bands as well, the painted beehive and the decibelles from lyon. both played great shows, the decibelles had a cute french accent, but i didnt shoot any photos because of.. well, lets just blame some foreigners. yes, its becaus of them, they stole my motivation, my camera, my ability to focus properly and what not. so please enjoy those blurry, noisy, out of focus shots of that great show.

thanks everybody, feel free to share this post, and feel free to comment here.
having a knee problem sucks. having a knee problem when the first warm and sunny days of spring are coming up pretty much compares to being kidnapped and forced to sleep with your mom while your dad is watching. think about that for a while, then go on reading this blog update.
done? done thinking about your mom? okay.
talking about your mom, here is herwig. herwig is old and grumpy, but beautiful on the inside (see, like mommy.) here he is sliding a 100km/h bs lipslide. yes!
this saturday the friendly and good looking guys from Wiki Graz and Freedom Skateshop Graz joined forces to host a Miniramp contest. this led to great skating and good times. between judging and looking great i also managed to get a few shots. enjoy.
