Div Adam

The Ginger Army General himself Div Adam lurks into Amsterdam & stops by the skatepark for a wee session, before its demise in 2014. See Div futer around & execute his signature the “handbrake”.          So if you give a shit and want to know  more, here is the situation report on the back end of this story. Amsterdam has gone through some big changes in the last couple years, and the government has implemented its Degentrification plans for the “progress” & “development”  of the city.                                                                                               In Layman’s terms this means what made Amsterdam a unique, free, fun, exciting, and creative city is now vanishing by the systematic closing of coffeshops, evicting rightful tenants from affordable housing for commercial advances, a system of laws, rules, & regulations full of conundrums governed by a right wing political party, etcetera etcetera.                                                                                            The Amsterdam government and its complete lack of support & empathy only to sell out to the highest bidder has created a ripple effect and is being felt by many but the hardest blow was to Amsterdammers. One of its first victims was skateboarding and the closing of our local Skatepark Amsterdam.                                                          I am fortunate and have had the pleasure to spend many hours at the skatepark and with Div’s help & the evil genius of Maloki we created this video as a testament to the “Goede tijden, Slechte tijden.”  & injustice we share as a skateboard community.                                              So go out there and Support Your Local LurkersYour Local Skate shops, & Your Local Skatepark builder.                                                                                                   

 

 

Urban Hygiene

We all know how important it is to  keep yourself clean, but what to do when you don’t have access to bathing facilities? This web fodder production from the official head shed of dumb shit spotlights Urban Hygiene – Tricks & Tips and shows you what to do step by step.

  • Find a clean water source
  • Always keep your body clean.
  • Take a bath once everyday.
  • As a minimum, bathe your feet, hands & private parts.
  • Inspect for bugs, or other objects that may keep you itchy.
  • If possible, change socks & underwear after bathing.

Personal hygiene is the individual concern of every person. It is your responsibility to always safeguard your health. These are simple and easy to follow basic health guidelines that everyone must observe.

El Chupanibre

El Chupanibre is the theme for this issue of Web Fodder #8. It spotlights what happens when a random meeting takes place at Abraxas coffeeshop in Amsterdam with Jeronimo Martins. After the introduction ceremonies with the devil’s lettuce we proceeded to show him around town.                                                                                   Good things always happen in threes right, well that was the circumstances  when we hit up the infamous Marnix Bowl.  There Jerónimo seen fellow Argentine homies Javier Aballay & José Alzugaray! What a coincidence that the Chilaw Crew & Jero Pa decided to visit ADam after meeting in Barcelona, Spain the previous week with no planning involved.                                                        What a small fuckin world skateboarding is! So after a few runs at the Marnix bowl to shake off the excitement, we decided to show the guys a hidden little gem in the hood  to top the day off with a fun session at a place we like to call “Yellow”.

Behind the scenes

This is a behind the scenes story about my newest project to be released soon somewhere on the www. I call it “High Plains Drifters – The Creature Feature”. So after reading the first sentence if you still give a shit, here’s the story.

 One day I watched Clint Eastwood’s High Plains Drifter, & had a dumb idea that it would be cool to do a mock of the original movie trailer into some kind of skateboard video thingy. A few months goes by and I was talking shit with Stu Graham about the idea of him coming to the high plains for a visit. After all they did just legalize weed, and Team Pain was creating some of the best skateparks in the world.

 So Stu organized a trip a few weeks later with Peter Hewitt, & now Creature pro Willis Kimbel to check out the Colorado territory. So you know how road trips go ya drive a shit ton, camp wherever, skate, drink and smoke your ass off but never really document it some way or if you do nothing happens with it. Cool this time I will catch some clips and see what comes of it? And sometimes you receive a last minute guests, this time it was Joe Hammeke of Thrasher.

 Classic! I love it when a plan comes together, now you have 3 Pro Skateboarders, a video dude, and a photographer. No tour buses, no airport shit, no stupid schedules, just load up in the rig hit some truck stops and see what happens next. So the boys saddled up and made their way east.

 After a day to shake off the road proper breakfast from The Egg & I and a little help from weedmaps.com, provisions were acquired and we set out for Ft.Collins, to the Northside D.I.Y skatepark, and Horsetooth Skatepark for a warm up session before the backyard bowl madness begins in the next couple days.

 Off the the Denver area to be exact the new Arvada skatepark, to link up with Wrex Cook. Man was this park insane every thing was massive, like a scene from Jurassic Park. Good thing we brought the #happyogre and after a short skate and help from a little rain, we moved on over to Whiskey Tee’s. The local yokels pleasantly greeted us with reefer & beers to get the mood right, and after a few the session started to heat up. To see Peter Hewitt session a backyard pool is amazing, his methodical approach to lines, the speed & uncanny angles he hits corners has to be witnessed in real life. Stu sat on the sidelines after a beefy slam and a bad case of altitude sickness. Willis stepped and threw some hammers down on Whiskey’s bowl till the darkness set in and the hunger pains moved us to greener pastures.

 Finally we made it to Lindsey’s, Wow! what a spot, the infamous dual purpose swim & skate design. The plaster was as sweet as a babys ass but unforgiving as the hangmans noose. Stu had his redemption not a piece of coping was laid untouched by his Indy’s. Like a locomotive speeding on the tracks Pedro kept laying down the lines well into the sunset. Willis did his thing, smashing moves like a pro with style and ease, but the knee slapper in this session was a kickflip 50/50! 

So Stay Tuned, Subscribe, and Aim to see this video.

My Goal

My goal, dream, ambition, or whatever you want to call it, is to facilitate a modest career that involves travel, skateboarding, music, food, promotional events and media productions one day.
Now how I am going to achieve that is another question, to be honest I really don’t know how to do it without your help. So that is why I am promoting my view to a broader audience through cannon-fodder.com and other social media Web Fodder campains.
Now I am not asking you the general viewer for any money, or some outrageous favor. There is other people to help with that. But what I want is only a moment of your time. Nowadays it is getting easier to support another person with the technological wonders of the 21st century.
Some or maybe many of you say “Why should I help you?” Simple for these guys I seen in front of my house today. They would love to see another skateboard video.

So please take a moment and click the like buttons, share the link to a friend or for that case a complete stranger, maybe leave a comment if you so desire. Your attention will be greatly appreciated.
Help me in producing new content for your entertainment pleasure.

Sincerely,
Nerd
