This is a street skating spot that Rich Monday discovered while construction crews were still building it. It has a 5 foot transition wall and a lip at the top worthy of a nice grind, or in this case a long slider. At age 40 Rich Monday shows the youngsters, that some things do get better with age.

Maty’s Corner #1

Maty’s Corner Issue #1

An Intro

So, I’m Maty Almost.  Got into skate boarding and punk rock when I was 15, so for half my life now.  Been a songwriter. Never had a solid band.  Got a lot of things to contribute to this blog by way of rants, reviews, resources to look into and whatever other God unknown bull shit I can pull outta thin air. I’ve known Rich for about 2 years and we’ve talked about doing something like this for about that long.  Now it’s time to make happen.  For the past year we’ve been nurturing our facebook page Punx In Solidarity. So, that’s something to check out.  Now, some may be wondering who the hell is this guy to have an opinion on anything? Well, no one really. Just an old skate punk who still has fire and rage burning to keep the scene real and organic. Not gonn cry about “sell outs” Not that big a deal and that’s its own blog entry.  A bigger issue is those who are fake 100% all the time.  We’ve all scene ‘em.  Well, that’s enough of an intro. Gonna try for 2 entries a week for y’all.  Have a good one and keep the fires of your scene and self burning!

– Maty Almost.
