An interview worth watching, unless you are with kids or something.

Why is it cool to be an idiot ? There are consequences.

Hitch hiking with an axe is perfectly legitimate. LOL !

Kai has my Ernst appreciation for what he did to that f*#ker.

Yes, random with out address types in snarfy headbands and drama of the week diction on YouTube, should be the first people we respect when it comes to civil justice.

I always feel better when picking up hitch hikers who carry an axe.

Yes, TYFPU,V :)

In his own vernacular, Kai is an excellent speaker on the personal moral/ethical responsibility of the individual.

Defending against predatory initiation of violence seems to me to be a good thing. I am going to forward a link to that video to someone at the Innocence Project. I imagine they already know about it, but I can nudge.

You know, I've picked up many young hitchhikers. Many of them climbers (all right, so I have a soft spot for climbers) and all of them lovely people. My last trip down the AlCan, I ferried a Swiss climber from Muncho Lake to Fort Nelson so he could have a part for his (rather junker) car flown in. His parents are the two doctors in their small Swiss town. Great young man, reminded me of my older grandson.

Nice find on the sign, Mouse.
Good night and good sleep, all of us around the Flames.

Really?
Dude's about as close to a Tony Alva lookalike as they come.

This is in FRESNO!!!! We are so proud. I have asada tacos at the little joint on the corner right there sometimes. Good salsa.

(edit) I just watched that second video. Seems like a terrible situation and not one worth joking about. The original video of Kai and his exploits was viral around here. If he really killed somebody later its a terrible situation and I hope the truth is revealed amongst all the internet silliness.

the original video is very entertaining. Proud to (hopefully) be moving to the central Valley. Where we run the PDL and Smash! Smash! SA-MASH!!


As still a non local, does Kai mean Fresno when he says Dogtown?? Like Fresno St. Bulldogs? Or is it a different place?

Vitaliy "Dogtown" is the Santa Monica/Venice area that is known as the heart and soul and spiritual birthplace of skateboarding back in the 1970s.

A must watch. Especially for poseurs like yourself. Its so full of skater jargon and trendy vocab that you'll have a whole new lingo at your next indoor bouldering sesh. And by the way, WELCOME TO VISALIA!!! Looking forward to bringing you alongside the Frestown Posse.
