you guys still reading this? content is all over the place recently. skateboarding, concert pics, and now feet? what is this guy up to?
well, i have a pretty darn good plan what i want to portrait here:
a) check how long it has been since i updated the blog
b) do i have any kind of pic i wanna put online? maybe something to write about?
c) since a) and b) most likely made me cry out in despair, choose some random picture and act all high and mighty about it.
so there you go, blogging 101.
the hype train that follows KADAVAR around is quite big. but unlike other bands, those guys deserve every bit of it. not only is their new album “Abra Kadavar” amazing, their live-shows are even more intense. i had the pleasure to witness one of these, along with the amazing DEATH HAWKS. being the fool that i am, i forgot to take pictures during Death Hawks, but mostly due to the fact that i didnt know much about them and was pretty blown away by their live performance. check those guys out, they deserve it.
here are my impressions of that amazing night:

sorry for the lack of updates, kinda working on some stuff here. in the meantime, enjoy this out-of-focus shot of a double line that Andi and Timmy did. also, i photoshopped cats in there. because cat you, thats why.
decided to put 2 super secret pictures online. thrasher already has its cover for november, apparently.
here is what the pros do when a rail doesnt slide: use mother nature and all its wonderful creations. behold the banana waxxx!
aaand thats it. luki is outta here. powerslide to freedom.
sometimes it is really hard to decide between shooting a sequence, shooting a still or just staying at home and playing video games.
well, i guess here i should have done all of the above. Luki Krobath did a fs lipslide, but he popped from the upper table, across this channel-gap-thingy. which is quite a lot tougher than you would expect from the picture at first.
i only shot a single shot though, so i have to improvise here. if you would kindly direct your eyes to the second image please, there the tour will continue.
see, i found the perfect solution. magazines, take notes here! also, there is joel in the background. hello joel!
so, there is this magical rail, high up in the hills of Graz. every single one that sees a video or a photo of that spot is like “dude, so small, looks perfect, i am gonna try XXX on that one!”
well, then you arrive there. downhill, rough as all hell, basically everything that can be wrong. look at those faces. fun fact: you have to “drop in” 4 m above the rail, if you push, you die because you get way too fast. when (if) you land a trick, you have mach 4 anyway. i somehow dont manage to transfer that onto the picture though.

went to a wedding last weekend. it was weddingy. no complaints here.
also: have you ever thought about how cats can hear really really good? think about it.
those handsome fellas were innocent bystanders at the recent skatecontest in town.
they were obviously important and successful business men, which explains their fine garments and of course justifies them complaining about all the people there looking like bums and losers.
seriously, they called someone else bums and losers with no taste of clothing. that was a tough one to swallow. you go, you warriors of true values!
Julian is quite the person that you would want to shoot with. he doesnt care about “do that again, i am not happy with the angle” or “your face looks ugly, do it again” or “i forgot how to take photos, do it again”. he just does it again.
here he is testing the rail while i run around like an idiot trying to find an interesting angle.

Flip didnt enter the contest. he just skated around for fun. or, as one of the best actors ever would say “flip dont contest” (if you can add the original quote in the comments, you win eternal happiness, my right to go on with your life and a high five)
since Flip isnt skating Grünanger too much, he was surprised to find this ledge. IT IS JUST SO WELL HIDDEN. he was stoked on the secret spot he found. Continue reading “flips contest side.”
