LA Confidential

Once again we are back in LA for a Studio City Jam. Good timing on this one, the rain was coming. LA weather is the best. We got to Studio City and rode for a bit with the Studio City Crew. Jowii, Hollywood Steve, and Jonathan. B.Carter and Big E were putting in work, and we would catch up later. After a great session, we meet up for some Thai in B.Carters hood. Food was excellent as always. Weedson's crib.was next. Of course we roasted a few. The next morning I woke up to here him moving around. I forgot we had an adult going to work. Weedson is the Team Manger at Quamen Bikes. 9 to 5 and he also rides on his lunch break. Living the BMX life.

The next day we got up and headed to Studio City. B.Carter,Sean F,Big E,Jowii,Gabe K., and Hollywood Steve were there. Travis Collier was also landing later that evening. After that we headed to the LBC to Sean F crib. Sean took us downtown that night for a few drinks. Sean was kind enough to put us and other gypsy in to his home. 

For the next 2 days some serious riding was going down. At the end of it meeting the Big E from over seas, seeing new riders in the mix, what up Mario, to the new blood who pushed themselves. This was one of the feelings you get when you come to a jam. Hope to see you soon at the One Love Jam on Jan 15th 2011. We got some sponsors helping out to. Innertwine, Deco BMX, Profile, Primo, Diversion TV, and Neon Media. Check for more updates here. One.

Road Trip'n

With the rain season on the way,  I was looking forward to heading down south to LA. The 40 years of bmx was going down, and a mini jam/session at Studio City. But first to the Joshua Tree National Park. It was time to meet the lizard king.

It takes about 12 hours to get to the park. So our first stop Long Beach. Driving in to LA can be a pain, but Jah was with us on the trip. No traffic at all, which is a surprise. First stop, LBC 420 Evaluations. S Kahj. need to renew his Prop 215. I also went in to also receive my Prop 215. Fairly easy, and inexpensive. Now that I am legal, I can also start to sample the finest sweetest cheba that California has to offer.  Second stop, Tip Plus. I peeped out some fresh new Lotek's at Interbike, so I was ready to grab a pair. Eric told me they will not be ready until February. So I got myself a pair of comets.  Thanks also Eric for all your help also. Third stop, Neighborhood BMX. Chad's shop is going to be the shit. Complete bikes, parts, and clothing. After a blessing in the shop, we stopped in to this Thai restaurant. You could run a Volvo bio-style from this place. Irie-z was kind enough to put us up for the night. Yo check out his 420 styles soon. Lot's of love in the LBC. 

We woke up in the early morning and hit the highway for Joshua Tree. S. Kahj went to the welcome center to find out that it was free to enter, Vet Day I think. We drove for about an hour, parked, and began to hike into the desert. Following a dry river bed, we found a place to camp. After setting up the camp site, it was time to take a mystic journey. After wondering along the side of the ridge, we headed back to the site. Then S. Kahj pointed up to the mountains, and said the weed guy was on the other ridge. Half way there we sat among weed guy's ho's, and blew smoke clouds with them. We made it to weed guy's place on the ridge, and notice a trail leading around the mountain. After a while we found the trail and proceeded to the top. We realized that the trail we saw looped around to the highest point on the mountain. Looking around and you see nothing for miles. The sun set so fast that next thing you know its dark. Now that I think about it, it got so cold I was in my sleeping bag by 6pm. Up at sunrise and off to the car to head back to LA.

We had some time to kill before we met up with B. Carter so we stopped in at the Liberty Bell II Temple. After some pray and sacrament, we headed to Studio City to ride with B. Carter. B.Carter had to jet early to pick up his guest, so we packed up and headed back to the Temple. Sun,Mon,Wed, and Fri between 4:20-5:20pm free edibles and a bowl on the house. After more sacrament was burned, we left to catch up with B. Carter and his guest Taku.

The next morning I got a call from Dane B. He's flying in later that night. Today is the Studio City session. We had LBC in the house Irie-z, Ed N. Different styles are very present in Cali. Joey spinning, B Carter mixing up front and back wheel,Irie-z g-turn noes manuals, Ahmed and Taku back wheel killing it. Cali has the sickest styles. After a awesome session, the group headed to Paquito Mas for dinner. We headed back to the Diversion Lab. Dane B. called and said he was on his way. Once Dane made it to the Lab, some shit talking was in order, then off to sleep.

Sunday, we got up, and hit the corner donut shop, then off to meet Joey at Studio City. We picked up Joey and headed to 40 years of BMX. Lalo had set up an am contest during the event. We could stay for the whole event but i hear Joey spun his way to the top. Congratulation Joey. After saying our good bye's we packed up and headed back north.

Awesome weekend in Socal. Thanks Eric@Tip Plus, Irie-Z, Chad J, B. Carter, and to LBC 420 Evaluation.

I am wondering if Akira was influence by early Ells Bells videos from way back. Zai is unbelievable. Akira's  skate and destroy style is not one to be test with. Crazy street lines, and his signature flat move, Godzilla don't have !*it on him.

The video also includes a lot of riders and lots of different styles. My favorite section would have to be Badd Section. Ucchie and Tsutomu are on deck of this amazing section. If you dont know who Tsutomu is better check him out his part in RUM is unbelievable. no crazy ride outs or boomerang to x-ft nose on the pedal, but you get a whole new style. Ucchie, I don't even know where to begin, let's just say I watched this dude kill it with a messenger bag on him. Watch out for his banger.
Go out and get this now. You can pick this up at Distance- Cycles.

It's Just a Ticket

On October 1st,  Gov. Arnold  Schwarzenegger signed bill SB 1449 reducing the penalty for possession of less than an ounce of cannabis to a $100 infraction.  Now, it is no longer any more of a blemish on your record than a parking violation.  You know Arnold is right on this, but he also does not support Prop 19. Most critics state that SB 1449 is a good step.  Be careful though, SB 1449 won't go in effect till January 2011.  On the other hand, Prop 19 will go into effect the following day, November 3rd, if it passes.

On Tuesday, November 2nd, Prop 19 will appear on the ballot. Prop 19 will allow persons over the age of 21 to purchase cannabis at fine establishments. Just like alcohol, the bill will give state and local government the ability to tax the sale of cannabis for adult consumption.

These two new bills are a stepping stone for something wonderful. Prop 19 is more than the legalization of cannabis.  Think about it, abandoned and closed buildings re-opened as coffee shops, head shops, or even a cannabis style restaurant.  Then jobs appear, and the state can take their cut too.  The taxes alone will help state fund projects like transportation,schools, roads and public safety. The police can now prioritize where they're needed the most. This bill has the ability to generate billions in annual revenue for California.

Let's make Prop 19 a reality. Vote Yes on 19. Change is always good. Also just in from the hotline...Shayne K. will be interviewed by a local publication on his views as a cannabis refugee from the East. The interview is going down on election day.

Stephen Hearn Gets Grimey

After living in California for 9 months, I became strapped for cash and things started getting tough.  Not having a dime to your name will make you go to the extremes.  So, Shayne introduced me to the recycling game.
Never in my life have I been so stoked to see a 5 cent refund on the side of a bottle.  Having a recycling center up the street, I knew what had to be done.  I was skeptical at first about crawling around in dumpsters, but it all came pretty natural for me.
It isn't that much money and you have to get a little dirty, but not only does recycling help save the planet, it helped save my life.  My lesson I learned is if you go broke, all you gotta do is pick up a little trash.

Herbs to I is a sacrament...

November 2nd is coming up. Vote YES on Proposition 19!

Higher BMX

Here is an essay that I wrote on September 1st. You can find an alternate version in the October Issue of Nug Magazine, or on their website.

For me, riding BMX and consuming cannabis is one in the same. Both acts have the extraordinary ability to raise the body's vibratory frequency, and when put together with a focused intent, the end result tends to be a conscious-elevating experience. Through the integration of marijuana and BMX riding, I have merged two of my most important spiritual activities into one.

In just the same way as prayer, yoga, or dance can be meditative, so can certain forms of technical BMX riding. Repetitive movements, intense concentration, and the partnership between mind and body are all required to successfully perform tricks on a bike. Riding and doing tricks has always given me that "high" feeling, and the "high" that I experience when riding a bike is not much different than the "high" felt when consuming cannabis. A bike is made up of triangles, diamonds, and circles, all of which act as energy emitters. Through riding, your body and bike work together cooperatively to raise the vibratory level of the body, which raises consciousness and elevates the spirit.

A similar effect is felt when consuming ganja. Marijuana has the wonderful ability to unite and enhance both hemispheres of the brain as new, clean blood rushes to the head. This enhancement and unification of the left and right portions of the brain results in the "high". Furthermore, as you consume cannabis, your body begins to resonate at a higher frequency than normal. Your body's vibration skyrockets, creating a spiritually unique feeling of openness and increased awareness.

So naturally, as these two activities became more important to me over the years, and their physiological and spiritual benefits became more clear, I began to merge the two. The result being a completely new and exciting experience. For me, when I ride my bike with the aid of ganja, I am transformed fully into the moment. Increased concentration, awareness, creativity, and relaxation all contribute to the BMX experience. They go hand in hand, and together both marijuana and BMX provide me with a heightened level of energy, spirituality, and fun.
