Why spend tens of thousands of dollars to reach a tiny subculture who is anti establishment.

Unless u make xboxs, power bars, energy drinks, clothes, games, I could go on... Today's anti establishment is tomorrow's ultra-hip - I've had apple products since '86 and for fifteen of those years I was in a tiny subculture which was considered anti-establishment not the owner of products from america's most profitable company.

What made you come around, finally figure out you really were not anti establishment.. Did you miss electricity, running water, cars, grocery stores. The anti establishment crowd with their I Phones seriously crack me up.

Emo? My old friend, that is not emo. Emo is dead. The hipsters killed that look. He is a mix is both SoCal skater guy from the late 90's (type who listen to Blink-182) and rich suburban rich kid. Maybe a bit of modern day punk rock-stoner guy as well.



Why can't these kids all be from the south? Or Texas? At least they listen to classic rock and country and will while flannel might be cool for them, at least their professional.



I'm drunk, so I'm going to stop typing now. Cheap whiskey is a bad...

Is it just me? Or is his right forearm disporportionate from the rest of his body? I guess since he has no sponsors now, he's gotta do something to keep him alive.

As I am sure you are aware, that's what too much wanking with one arm does to you

I'm a little late to this dance, but are you telling me that when you look at the photo above you feel that sponsors will think' consumate professional' reviewing it? I was unaware of the tattoos watching the 200, but when he pulled his helmet off my first thought was 'moron' - and I've had some pretty damned long hair at times in my life.



And for the record books, I have a vague recollection of the Beatles on Ed Sullivan in '64 and had no problem with them.
