Remeber those really bad TWS “New York moment” or was it “minute” articals from the mid ’90s? The ones Ted Newsome did. Well I guess Dimitry Elyashkevich wasn’t very fond of them either. This is the “metropolitan quickie” Dimitry did for Big Brother.  This is hands down one of the funniest skate articals ever!!! The “poetry” makes me laugh everytime… even nine years later. Newsome must have felt like a jackass after this.

I’m going to start skating with this book in my pocket again, just to see if it affects me–kind of like my friend Jason and I did in ’99. Or did we only talk about doing that? Good times for sure, dude.

Now, I hardly read skate mags, let alone TWS, but when I do, I always notice mistakes in Mackenzie Eisenhour’s retro column. You know, the one at the front of the magazine where he, um, laments the passing of time, something we never do on this blog. A year ago he wrote that Kareem founded Menace in ’95. ’95? Come on, dude, it was ’94. Don’t you know anything?
