s. ueno is one of my favorite skaters at this point. so this is all i got to say.
today, i arrived at Mccarren park. right as i am putting my bag down. someone gets broke the fuck off. like death screams broke. and its who can dial 911 the fastest. at the exact same moment some NYPD are rolling by. we got a homie down so we flag them down. cause they can help right? protect and serve and all that?
as they slowly sonder up to the screaming guy. they tell him to relax..
ok. your not a medic.. thats cool.
they then proceed to push everyone to the sides. and yell and anyone who hop’s on their boards. plus general harassment about about.. “see what happens when you skateboard?”.. not that any one should still be trying to skate when a homie broke off. but, its just instinct when trying to move.
i dunno what the cops where doing. but it took atleast 20 minutes for an ambulence to arrive.
witch is BS. i think they were just taking dudes info. i keep the lurk on. the cops clear everyone out. they kick dudes board back to him (still on the ground). and it hits him. wtf?
they proced to round up us lurkers.. and tell us they are wrighting him a ticket for not wearing “proper protective gear” (this is what the signs on the park says. what does this even mean?) and that they were going to be nice and not write us ALL tickets.
now, i don’t know about anyone else. but those cops #1 and only fucking job. should of been taken care of that dude. not making homies bounce cause they don’t want to get tickets.
and they were basicly given the.. “he got what he deserved” attitude.. it was bullshit.
the NYPD can fuck themselves. and anything bad that happens to them. they have coming.
went to the maloof money cup yesterday (it is in my buro) to see all the homies.. it was crazy hot and really freaking dirty.
i never actually went into the event. gave my tickets away. but it was dope to see all the guys from Naysayer, Prize Fighter Cut, KCDC, NYskateboarding.com and more. psyched to have a new epic free park in queens too!

you know. just fuck you MTA. (nyc area metro transit athority). fuck everyone who works for you to boot. (for good measures). almost the #1 reason to move outta this town.
so today i went in for some minor knee surgery. it appeared i had a meniscus tear. how much did i appear i did? after 2 weeks of knee pain. i went to see a doctor. with some quick looking at my grossly colored knee, and some ligh, but painfull squeeze. “i think its a meniscus tear. we need to have and MRI”.. ok i say. and a week later have an MRI. once all the MRI data comes back. yeap.. and meniscus tear. so, got to have some small surgery to remove the torn part. ok. not exciting. but anything to get back on my feet.. as it were. so! today was the day. i get in there. the knock me out, and i wake up about a hour later. or so. i don’t really know. and my doctor / surgeon comes in. “good new and bad new”.. as my heart sunk. “there is nothing wrong with your knee”.. as in there was no tear anywhere.
we looked at pictures from inside my knee, and everyone is pretty much dumb founded. just to be clear. i had already had 4 weeks fo pain leading up to the MRI. the MRI was about 1.5 weeks before the surgery. and, meniscus tears to not heal. look it up.
anyways so here i lay. my knee wrapped up. cause they did cut into it and probe around. but now with a total mystery. what went wrong, and where? was the MRI wrong? did my doctor. who specialises in this somehow miss it? im going to go with a fucked up MRI. but then what?
ah the wonderfull world of medicine.
