So my friend Jane just sent this to me along with the question “Would you like to be on your snowboard or skateboard?”
Creepy question, but hysterical none the less. My answer would be a Snowboard with a Vermont backdrop!

Rapper Guru is dead at age 43 after a long battle with cancer. The New York-based hip-hop legend, born Keith Elam, had a heart attack March 2 and subsequently fell into a coma. After seemingly recovering from that hit, Guru lost his battle with a cancer-related disease on April 19.
“After finding out this awful news I started looking through tons of pictures from the time I had worked at Zoo York in 03′ ish. I remember we did some Deck with Gang Starr. But I remembered to a tee meeting Guru and DJ Premier for the first time at Zoo. It was Jefferson Pang, Crazee Dave, Rodney Smith, myself and Gang Starr!!! Guru had a presence like no other hip hop entertainer. He was special to his fans and a straight up dood that will be missed and loved by all.”

When I was a young Punk Skater in the early 80’s, I watched a show called “The Young Ones” religiously after school. It was one of MTV’s first TV shows ( when MTV was broadcasting out some kids basement in New Jersey ). I recently found my VHS collections that I recorded of the tube and have been getting back into the show reliving my mislead youth. This show was my introduction to the London Rock, Ska & Punk sounds. Bands like Motörhead, Madness, Nine Below Zero and the Theme Song to the Show performed by the Great Cliff Richard.
They also had these hilarious side skits to the show. My favorite one was Nozin’ Aroun’.
