Jason Oliva The House of Steam

This ad ruled, the photo, the place, the quotes, everything.

I bought 3 of these Tommy G Hurricane graphic decks when they came out. First thing I did was turpentine the graphics off and hand em over to Dan Tag for some proper ART-STEAMIFICATION and rode em all into the 90’s. They where kinda flat but a cool size for the little guys like me.

How to properly Steam-up a Tommy G Deck.

1. Remove gr

aphics but leave the man’s name on the Board! Respect!

2. Get Dan Tag to draw on it.

3. No matter how much you regret it later allow him (Tag) to draw STEAM using illustrated swimming sperm (on the nose)

Weep kickin like a chicken, Rocky and Greg Taylor on the deck. Froncek’s ramp was around the corner from The Barn and it was always our outdoor alternative. (Especially when The Barn was in its last days after The Kanes sold the house)

Many a good time was had by all!

73: The House of WEEP: I am biased but this is one of my favorite Weep photos.

Photo Kevin McDowall

So I am biased about this photo since that is me (Jason Oliva) pointing defiantly at the camera (Kevins Father’s old school SLR) This was during the “You don’t even know” years. I am not sure who said those words first (I’ll guess Jay Henry) but it was quite a catch phrase for the time. It was eventually spray painted on the outside of the Barn during its last days.

So there is Weep doing his stylish thing as always and me letting the future (20 years later) in on the fact that…”You dont even know!”

YAR WEEP!!

Jason Oliva and Rocky Vertone(Indy Air) Froncek’s Ramp NJ circa 1987

I think Mike Pruskowski took this photo…Corn seemed to be only taking Black n White at the time.

Rocky and I did this a handful of times on this day and pulled it everytime….we never did it again.
