My Shittiest Post Yet

by Ben Kelly | Dec 12, 2008 | 366 views | 2 Comments

If you read Joey Brezinski’s Pro Spotlight interview from our latest (January) issue, you know he has quite a few random things that he takes pride in?chicken wings, for one. And his shits, for another. When the anticipated poo question came up in our interview, he started flashing me pictures of his toilet floating documentation on his cell phone, and I of course told him to e-mail them over. Here’s the question from the interview and his pride and joys below that and just another reason why Jojo gets awesomer and awesomer by the minute.

Yoon also told me you?re also a connoisseur of something else. Your shits?
He told you that? Wow. I?ll show you my first photographed shit right here. This was after Thanksgiving. [Joey scrolls through his phone searching for saved photos of fresh toilet floaters.] I?m not going to tell you my secret, but here?s last year?s. I just got a camera phone and had a huge Thanksgiving dinner and I was so psyched that I pulled the phone out of the pocket afterwards. Now I have at least 400 photos. I have a shitload of them, literally [laughs].

With his Day In The Life videos going up, I figured I might as well tie in my favorite answer from his Top Five in our August ‘08 issue. Some fine ’staches indeed.


Lizard Goes To Jail

by Ben Kelly | Nov 18, 2008 | 1,196 views | 3 Comments

While they were announcing the winners of the Johnny Romano skate jam and while we were waiting on this sketchy Houston highway for an hour and a half pleading with cab companies to send someone to come take us back to our hotel, some shit was going down in this shitty divebar (which, would probably be a cool spot if it were anywhere else other than Houston) next to the park. Apparently, some real life cowboys were talking shit to Antwuan, the cops were called, and these overweight Walker Ranger Texas Ranger type po-pos took Lizard to jail. I guess it was on some charges of public disturbance or some bullshit like that.

Doesn’t make sense? Yeah, to us neither. Especially when we saw these three drunkards walk out the bar right past Chuck Norris and his three western amigos, get into their Ford pickup, kick some beer bottles out out from under the driver seat, and drive away probably so they can go home and beat their wives. Fine police work, Houston.

Anyway, Lizard got out and made it to the afterparty that night where old ladies were showing us their pierced nipples and some Dad and her daughter were telling me how to make a bomb out of a tennis ball. Good times.
