So on July 20th THOS turned three years old. Crazy to think I have been living with this thing that long in two different countries as well. It has been a great year from my vantage point it seems there has been no downturn in the brotherhood sector of the economy. A high water mark is obviously Jim Murphy being recognized for his charitable/skate endeavors but along with that I have my eye on a lot of other seeds that have been planted and people tied to this community seem to be gravitating towards one another with results to follow. So THOS continues on into year 4 – keep the pics and stories flowing and I promise to keep it all moving so no one will ever have time to hang a sign on us.

Cheers, My Bruthas and Sistas!


Ps How sick is that photo of Tom! Nice one Dave!

So having contributed to this historic event I was granted an invitation to a swanky party and to skate within the Smithsonian Museum…too cool! When faced with an overwhelming desire to be somewhere one cannot the obvious solution was to send Derek Rinaldi and Jay Henry as my eyes and ears!! It looks like DR and Sleepy head Jay are on site and skating (with uber VIP permission and hopefully alongside Jim Murphy) It seems that the roof of the Smithsonian is considerably higher then that of of the Barn.  I can hear one of Jay Henry’s classsic …”DAMMMMITSSSSS” echoing through those hollowed halls…Derek what have you gotten yourself into? 

-More to come!!


These just in 6:11 pm July 5th


Yeah Murph!! 

Thats my pic too!! (Jason)

Gonna be away till next week which means (I miss out on using my Bouncing Souls backstage passes for London…aaaarrrgh..Thanks for getting them for me WIG!) everyone will have to wait to see some serious pics from Tom’s backyard. For those of you who have had an idea of what this abstraction of ramp reality looked like, wait no longer! (or at least till next week) All secrets will be revealed in these Dietz Brutha pics! Also thanks and cheers to all the people who have hit me up over here:
