Rad video made by Clinton Perry of a recent SoCal pool adventure I had with Bob Lake and a few other doodz.
Unbelievably, I was in a Buzzfeed video about women skateboarding that got over four million views.
I had a freaking blast filming this video with Peaches and an ocean of beautiful people.
Well here is the video Robin Reiser and I made!!
GOOD DAY! Or is it ever? OIL SPILLS make me think it may not be. Why are humans such monsters? Without even trying to be? And then also when trying to be? My heart aches for all creatures affected by this bullshit.
BUT THAT’S NOT WHY THE TWO OF YOU LOOKING AT THIS PAGE ARE LOOKING!! You were just hate-browsing, right?? Tumblr is down? I don’t know.
Just wrapped a short written by the excellent Robin Reiser. The topic is women: does it make sense that they are allowed to wake up every day? Have we controlled their lives ENOUGH with the unreasonable forces available to us?
ALSO, I recently acted in a short written and directed by the venerable Devon Kirkpatrick. Can’t wait to see what comes of my bellowing and leaping about in a kimono and short shorts. Potato on two toothpicks, you are the physique of German women everywhere!
You know I ain’t foolin’ because it’s the 2nd…
