Today I am getting things together for the rest of the week because I’ll be out at the X-Games from Thursday to Sunday.I’ve put together lots of cool stuff so be sure to check the site every day. Tomorrow we have an interview with Nastazio and Thursday we have a How-To with Edwin. I’m going to send out a newsletter real soon, so if you haven’t done so already, sign up for it. (Look to the left of your screen.)

Ryan says to tell you guys that Morgan is stuck in the desert with VW problems. Ryan is once again working on Nora Cup stuff. I think we are all pretty excited about the awards party this year at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Keith’s Update:
“I rode the Etnies park this morning with John Povah and Garrett Byrnes, watched eight-year-old kids do tailwhips, and dealt with one of their idiot skater employees playing terrible music just to piss us off. Povah almost fought him. Had more meetings today and am working with Matt (Ride’s art director) on some new layouts, as well as doing some proofing and planning. Other than that, there’s no Red Bull or Kronik in the office and I’m dragging.
