Surprisingly Little About Skateboarding?

TET. The Edge Skatepark.
Probably 1990?
I was browsing this blog wondering what to write about this week when it occurred to me that over the years I've written surprisingly little about skateboarding. Specifically myself and skateboarding.

Most likely because the heyday of my skating years was from 1988 to about 1996. I didn't start writing this blog until about 2003-4 long after I'd completely lost most of my skills beyond the very, very basics.

Book Review: Kizmet and the case of... Book Series by Frank Woodley

Kizmet, Gretchen and Spencer.
Frank Woodley is a master of physical comedy, silly absurd humor and is an Australian national treasure. I've always looked forward to his TV appearances whether it be a guest spot or staring in his own TV series.

I've followed his appearances for years, even so, it was news to me that he's also a talented artist/illustrator (I'm not surprised I just never knew that was something he did). When I saw him promoting his book series, Kizmet, on Channel Ten's The Project and got a quick glimpse of his illustration style I just had to see more. So I immediately got online and bought the first two, newly released Kizmet books.

Movie Review: Justice League War (2014) *Some Spoilers*

I caught Justice League War by Warner Animation on Netflix thinking, finally some new DC animation to watch. I do own a few DC Warner Animation titles and usually they're quite good.

This is the first title I've seen that's based off the New 52 comic book run that reset everything in the DC comic universe. If this is any kind of typical example of the new story lines, I'm really glad I don't waste my money on comics.

The Lexus Hoverboard - Not Quite Back to the Future II

Lexus Hoverboard.
I know it's been a while since Lexus showed off 'Slide' their version of a Back to the Future II style hoverboard but I couldn't not blog about it just because the buzz has died down.

I'm not going to explain how it works in any great detail, it's pretty much what you'd expect, super conducting magnets, both in the board and in the riding surface. Check out the Lexus Slide website if you want more detailed information.
