  4. I'm a college student in the Bay Area and let me tell you....

    It's not all that bad.

    I have grown up here my whole life but I've also done alot of travelling around the country and with the possible exceptions of New York or Boston, I can't think of another area that I would want to live. LA is fun but not my cup of tea exactly. I think what Steve Coogan said in Coffee And Cigarettes sums up my feelings about SoCal in general.

    Anyway, you'll probably end up living in Oakland. It's cheap and it has one of the largest burgeoning hipster/art scenes in the country. It's near Berkeley so you'll have a steady influx of smart people coming and going and there's a real eclectic community, tons of record stores, great places to eat, etc etc.

    The rest of the Bay Area is pretty whatever.

    I really like Palo Alto actually (think Stanford). It's quite ritzy but it's small and for what it has, it is a fairly cool place.

  5. Going to Barcelona in July and desperately need to find an affordable (1400 Euro and below) for a 3 bedroom flat in the city for a month, preferrably in a good part of town. Anyone? Thanks.

  8. WHATSUP CIAN! It's Shona, dog.

    how long-Since I was 10, I'm 19 now (be 20 in June) but I've been seriously skating since 97.

    their first board-Black Label John Cardiel Everslick, Spitfire Lil' Smokies (39mm) and some Ventures, a handmedown from Cardiel himself c/o of his lil brother, my best friend, NAME DROPPING LIKE A MO'FUCKA. Real board c/o of my moms was an Anti Hero Cardiel, Indys, and some multi colored Spits.

    what they ride now-Real HUF Basketball Board, Royals, Ricta Kareems

    where they live/skate-San Jose, but I skate in Frisco alot. I bounce around; might catch me in London at Southbank or in Morocco.

    what they skate-I love bumps, pools, banks, and jersey barries. Makeshift spots.

    what shoes they skate in-Vans Half Cabs or some Low top Timbs.

    last 3 tricks learned-Switch bigspin, Frontside Rock and Roll slide, bs 180 nosegrind.

    is $100.00+ ceramic bearings worth it-If you can afford it, i guess, why not???
