Summer Vacation Video (Unreleased 2004)

So I (Lonnie) made a video in 2004 that i filmed over an extended summer vacation. I lived in Austin, Texas at the time. From there i went to NYC, Chicago, San Diego, LA, Houston, Lake Owen, and ended up living an Dallas, Texas after all that. Not alot of people have really seen it, and i only made 200 dvd copies that i sold mostly at skateparks and to a couple shops. I was inspired because of this excerpt from Robert Guerrero's blog..

"Another friend I can travel back in time with and do some business blading with is Lonnie Gallegos... I was lucky enough to be in the Los Angeles area hook up with Lonnie as well as J.C. Rowe and Kevin Gillan. Before this day I did not have any clips for this video, and it would have been the first video of Lonnies I had never not been if I didn’t meet him this day, get in the zone, and handle some business. And I did just that. Suprisingly the first line I did, I ended up doing first try which is pretty unheard of. Well, it is more unhear of as Lonnie will know from his past experiences filming many sections with me. I almost jinxed myself ont he last trick on the line because it was going so well. I for some reason have this self destructing habit of messing myself up via my thoughts right before im about to finish or complete a task of any kind. And it came up like the great wall of china, but I relaxed and busted right through it looking up at lonnie after with a face of astonishment at what had just occured. He had the same face as well and was in utter disbelief at what had just happened. Thank god too, because chances are I would have probaly said “one more time,” which would have resulted in serious frustration not only on myside but im sure lonnies as well. Or actually mostly mine, Lonnie is actually a really good sport when it comes to skaters taking hours to do just one trick. Thanks for all those times you were patient while I got lost in my mind and all the vicious cyclic patterns I ahve been known to go through."

So heres that entire video in sequential order. Including a rarely seen Robert Guerrero Profile and a section of me skating. Weird.

election day post

with nothing to do about the election. instead just this neat (and horribly photoshopped) stuff from sunday blading. sorry for the lack of substance.. blame the editing.

homeboy lives up the street. he is usually hunched over on a block faded out of his mind, but for some reason nobody ever seems to care.


"so im gonna like.. go from this bank to this rail.."

this isnt the one jc actually landed. my camera ran out of batteries even though they were "full" but you get the idea..

Why I Design: Jayson Reduta

My good friend and fellow blader Jayson Reduta (from Medium days, vg17) sent me this video he did for design school. Good to see him back on 8 wheels.. looks like he had a little camera help from the G..

Colorado Road Trip

as mentioned somewhere in a previous post Brandon Negrete went along on the Colorado Roadtrip this year to film for too faded.. the footage all looks really cool. Lots of cool people made it out. Our good friend and photographer Nick Rother also went along for the trip (i think hes a regular on the trip) and shot some cool photos for us. Check em outt..

negrete on the grill tip.. and now that i think of it hes been known to make great carne asada too

Tight Pants

since everyones into the girth of their neighbors jeans lately, i figured this would be an appropriate video to post.

I hope this settles some of the gaps in the hip-hop generations beefs because this song is way too awesome for me not to like.

JC Rowe Wallpaper

JC Rowe for "too faded" (Fade Nation 2)

Jess D. Masseur

So most of us know who Jess Dyrenforth is. He shoot photos for tons of mags past and present, runs 50/50 & england.. But a masseur? Ive heard, but i had no idea he was voted "orange county's best."

and is EVERYBODY afraid of the word "rollerblading" lately?

we went out blading on sunday to keep the legs good and to find some new spots. on our way out we saw the rat tail crew skating a fountain down the street from our house.. random. Anyways, we continued on and found some new rails. I was pretty bored so somehow i took like 150 pictures.. i guess these are the better ones..
