julian appreciation week - day two: favorite season - season six
When I first got here, everyone thought I came for a girl, the girl in the book. But I only came here to make a movie. But now it turns out everyone was right. I am here for the girl in the book, the other girl.

Chandler wanted to take a stab at another cover re-creation so she decided to tackle the relatively simple cover of the great book, “The Duff.” How’d she do?

What I’ve gotten myself for the past days. I’ll list them: Thrasher Skategoat Banner, Thrasher Magazine Banner, thrasher sticker, Thrasher Skategoat and Magazine Patches, Baker Skateboard stickers, Deathwish Skateboards stickers, Dogtown stickers, Volcome stickers, Volume 4 stickers, Figgy OJs Wheels (53mm), Independent x Doom Sayers collab Trucks, Bones Reds Bearings, Eric Koston David Bowie signature model Board, Local SkateShop Skateboard, and Stanley Kubricks The Shining 1980 DVD. I’m pretty happy for myself right now. I’m glad that I can find something that makes me happy again.

 oh yeah, those were some heavy days, the early 2000s. we didn’t know we were really doing then, just a couple of stupid kids, thinkin we might get a few free bread loaves out of it. we never wanted to be neck deep in hot cross buns, suffering the wrath of middle aged people forever more. we never asked for it. we only wanted a measly after school pay check. but no, they sent us in the firing line, like pigs to slaughter. i remember looking around at the carnage one easter sunday. one of our best girls had scraped her arm on a pane di casa. they don’t tell ya how heavy those panes are. i saw one take the head clean off an apprentice baker. but this girl, damn, she was bleeding out. but would you believe it, she kept trying to serve. i can still hear her choking out her last words. ‘what would you like? are you right there? how are you today?’ she kept repeatin’ em, over and over until they turned to ash in her mouth. we had nothing to staunch the wound but cream cheese icing. i’ve seen some things, you know. some things are just best never to talk about.
