Secret Society

To coincide with the demise of the Secret Society headquarters and missing Brother Himburg, I decided to put up the part of the High Street Homies from Mosaiook and give a bit of a behind the scenes at Phillip's request

Hmm I wonder if Hawley's prophecy will become true seeing that they've all moved home, will their feet touch the ground again and be ordinary again or will they still be the revered demi human secret society we all dont know about?

Anyways enough from me, what you see here is the result of:
- Being able to infiltrate SS HQ

- Wake up Phillip at the reasonable hour of 9am as opposed to 2pm
- Get some phone calls answered by the secret double agents.

- I must also mention the song choice. "Break My Stride" by Matthew Wilder, is a result of raging with Phillip at Art Factory on numerous occasions. As his English wasn't at a proficient level, he only knew the lyrics break my stride, and so everytime that part of the song came on he would sing along and dance. Haha. Soooooooooooo raging.

- As you noticed the colours on Phillip's name are a mix of colours. I tried to incorporate a German flag into the shades of it. Don't know how well it worked though!
- Homeboy on the guitar was psyched on Phillip. Apparently he had dropped everything and moved up to Sydney from Melbourne to try and come up on his songwriting prowess.
- Minto drains was one of the first times I skated with Phillip.
Phillip:"What does cheeky mean?"
George: "It's like being naughty"
- Fertig= "Done" in Himburg dialect.

- Phillip's first line at Questacon was a result of a Secret Society trip to Canberra consisting of 2 cars of people excluding myself and Hawley.
- Luckily enough we kidnapped Phillip for a Secreter than Secret Society trip which
consisted of Dean, Phillip, Troy, Hawley and Myself. Good times.

- Skating the bench through the gap in Melbourne was probably the hottest day I have ever lived through. Something like 46 degrees in the middle of a heatwave, we didn't even leave the house until 5pm that day.

Also we had been raging the night before on Australia Day/Chinese New Year, and we were all really excited. Pretty eventful night, China town, game arcade, Hungry Jacks, Box on head with Bryce, "Bananna" minus Hodges, and "oh message".Check the previous Melbourne January 2009 blog and http://www.cubacruu.blogspot.com for our adventures.

- Anyways back to business, don't need to say more about the red carpark clip do I? SS...
- "Yeah..." I liked Phillip's Hardflip at St Kilda Beach.
- Lilli Pilli = SS TF
- I think Chase whistled at Phillip at Lucas Heights.
- Olds Park clips are always lovely because of the green grass.
- Hadnam and Macca ripping.
- Jake Demos, coming up in 2002 according to Chris Hebron in an old Crank magazine... well there you go.
- Switch Crooks line is pretty reminiscent to Raja Nasuta.
- Skating away from a little dog looks like fun doesn't it George?
- Can't say much about George's Euro footage, because I wasn't there..

- Minto drains was fun. George saved his board from the water on many occasions. Watch the High Street Video to confirm that.

- Random parks in the Blue Mountains look fun enough to back 3 kicky over.
- Front board biggys must work better on Dane's board.
- Fakie biggys must be more fun after seeing Jake Hayes focus his shoe. Wah :(
- According to Johnzo, skating on Boxing Day is the purest mission of all. Everyone is around, everyone comes out, good times.

- There you go. I hope I unravelled some of their mysteries.
- Ich bin stolz auf dich!

Mosai ook

- Jackson did an amazing introduction, which meant there wasn't really a need for a title for names of any sort.

- The glass did crack and every time it was walked on it would move. sketchy seeing as the floor below is a pre school and they're the panels for the lights which can fall once cracked. Sorry.

- Running straight into a pole head first isn't very fun.

- Getting boards stuck when trying to pull in impossible lipslides isn't fun, and neither is
kicking bins out of frustration.

- Jumping over the water without your board is quite silly. Board gets wet.
- Here's the result of the slam onto my elbows.

- The man at Cook and Phillip seemed pretty psyched on watching things go down.

- Copying Hawley's getups at Civic Park in Canberra is amusing.

- No comply flip manual was the first clip since my knee operation. I was thrilled.

- "Boats. Water". Thanks Dane. He filmed the surrounding scenery.

- Dane appears doing a line at MOS because we did the same lines and put them in each other's parts.

- Terminator flip in tribute to Jonz, in tribute to the kid that did one just to terminate Willy in a game of.

- BS flip on a bank to be all arty yeah?

- Yeah pole jam kind of tricks are all the rage right?

- Slappy grinds are really fun. I spent the whole day learning them prior to this one.

- Sw skasian shove was for Johnzo. "look here" as in his part in Misled OOK

- Yes I really did skate over that gap and the syringe haha.

- Reverting the switch shove was an accident. Mertell was psyched, as you can tell from his face.

- Snake chalmer for AJ

- Psyched on the featch at cook.

- Skating Melbourne library step with Syd's jacket on. Two of the most iconic Melbourne pronouns I'd say.

- Have a look at any previous Melbourne blogs to see what's gone down on the several Melbourne trips made during Mosaiook.

- A STAR reference. Stewart Thomas Arewa Richard.

- Thanks for the props Frenchman at St Kilda

- Skating the Blackbox mini with Dane was lots of fun. Thanks for the invite.

- People who didn't know what was going on at Cook and Phillip. Calling out to them to show them what's up.

- Funny that I'm wearing a shirt with a bananna peel on it when I trip up the stairs.

- Riding through caps isn't fun.

- I went in the water twice this day at Minto drains. First time I was mucking around and my board went down the hill towards the water, I ran after it, board went in the water, and I slipped and fell in. Haha yeah me. Second time I was being silly, jumped across the water and changed my mind mid air.

- Seeing Bernie skate the sandstone ledge at Cannon made me want to skate it, so there you go.

- Switch tres to show people I can still do flip tricks haha.

- Really psyched on Tom Penny's clip in the old es trailer, hence the Olds Park clip.

- I forgot to mention I filmed the whole part on the one Death Zone graphic. J Bone had a lot of those so why not?

My mind was exhausted after this part.
Stay tuned.

Yeah Yous In The Air

Mary Jane and ook made a clip of Troy and Mary Jane's wedding in Barcalona and holidaying adventures throughout Spain and Morocco, for Troy's birthday and their wedding anniversary.

Yeah Yous in the air, everywhere I look around.
