Quality from the past

After a daily binge on ffffound, I came across these old Powell Peralta Skate Designs. These are still cool after 20+ years. The McGill has always been a favorite, damn thats tough! VCJ or Vernon Courtlandt Johnson is responsible for all the good early Powell Peralta stuff. Not too much information on the web about him, but what an influence.
Below is a retort from Ben

A better and updated way to release myself.

Roland TD-7 fused with a Mapex Venus
Ahh, after talking to numerous people in the jacksonville area who were selling Roland TD-7's, I finally came across this set. It works fantastically, and is now part of a hybrid of electronic/acoustic percussion love. The Mapex Venus is a perfect fit, and the Roland being is amplified by a Kustom PA system which matches the volume of the acoustic drums perfectly. Thanks to Mark from Craigslist and Ventojax from Ebay, and my parents for helping make this pre-birthday gift possible.

Spartacus Rigsby
left our house on March 31st, 2008 due to an unknown illness.
We took him to a vet the day before, and was told he had nothing serious, but he still hasn't returned home. He looked and acted very sick in his final days (pic was taken on march 30) and I'll miss him forever.
