MJL Skatepark idea
Saturday, April 06, 2019
I recently started skateboarding regularly again, and I feel like it has awoken the passion I once had for it back in high school. I just landed a shuvit over a gap at our local outdoor skatepark after 5 days of trying, and Tony Hawk just recently released a video on the RIDE YouTube channel of him trying to land a 360 shuv nose grind on a vert ramp. He talks about the mental and physical struggles of trying to land a trick that you really want to get, and I completely understood where he was coming from. Thrasher also has a section on their YouTube called My War, so if you’re a skater reading this then you understand. Anyway, I keep driving by the vacant building where Dollar General used to be here in Flatonia and keep thinking, “Man, it would be cool to turn that into an indoor skatepark.” It would be awesome to hold events there with skaters of all levels coming together from the general area or even all over to enjoy something they love. Don’t know if Flatonia would be the place for something like that to really thrive, but if you know me I do talk about wanting to move to Los Angeles a lot. And reason being is back in high school, watching Jackass and CKY that got me into skating, then classic skate films like the FLIP Sorry series or ADIO One Step Beyond, GIRL Yeah Right, and a few others, my dream was to travel the world with skaters and make skate videos and get paid to the fact where I could make a living at it. Which is still my motivation in all my artistic endeavors. But it wasn’t until I watched the documentary Dogtown and Z Boys that I knew I wanted to move to LA and be a part of that. So I guess this blog is kind of a reach out to anyone in the skateboarding industry that knows the perks of doing something like what I want to do which is open and own my own skatepark. I’m 32 now and not getting any younger, so if this is meant to happen for me, then what better time than now. I’ve waited long enough, and I feel like the time is right to make something like this happen whether it is here in Flatonia or in Los Angeles. My email is below.
MJL4 Sk8 Parts
Saturday, January 19, 2019
Jimmy text me last night and asked if our skate parts from MJL4 were online.. Well, they weren't until now.. Decided guess it's time to put them online.. F'n posers!! Lol! Go to my Vimeo page to check them out..

This was one of the first things we filmed when Cody got his camcorder in June 2000. "The Pact" is when everyone makes the agreement that the first person who falls asleep gets messed with without any get-backs. This was a few months before Jackass aired, so needless to say when it aired, it was right up our alley to make "jackass" videos. We did a couple of more "pacts" after this one, including the "elimination pact" the next summer in 2001. It lasted until there was only one remaining person to not fall alseep. Kind of like an elimination match in wrestling. Fun and crazy times.. Click the title of the blog to check out the first pact. :)

I know, I know.. I'm so nostalgic.. LOL!! 18 years ago to the day.. After seeing Jackass on MTV, we were like, "We have to make videos like that!!" And thus, MJL was born.. Click the title of the blog to watch our first night doing stunts.

To celebrate the release of the new CKY album, I wanted to release some old clips. One is from MJL4 when I did a front flip off the roof of my house. And the other is some sleeping pranks from 2009-2010. Enjoy! And can't wait to hear the new CKY album!! C! K! Y! C! K! Y! C! K! Y!

This is the full version of Riding to Brandon's back on February 27, 2004. Have a short version of this footage on our YouTube and some cut up clips of it on the "Footage from the Vault" series. Wanted to show it in its entirety by itself.
Just a back story.. After we released MJL4 at the end of 2003, we pretty much stopped doing stunts and pranks and just filmed us hanging out, partying, at parties, etc. I think about it now, and it was almost like we were vlogging before YouTube and vlogging existed. So here is a video of us headed to a party. Also, if you didn't know Trey, he was a character. Anytime I watch footage of him or think about the crap we used to do, I laugh. Maybe he'll have the same effect on you after watching the video. :) Enjoy this vlog before vlogs.

Some more unreleased footage. This time it's the Big Wheels Trash Can Bowling Off Roof from 2011. This was the first stunt back from the trash can flip incident. But of course, this stunt was all about a black eye.
Saturday, October 10, 2015
Finally decided to release this footage from 2009 since everyone seems to always talk about it or bring it up.
Friday, September 04, 2015

Found some more analog clips that didn't make The Analog Days Blu-ray set this past week while capturing all of our Mini DV tapes from 2003-2005. After 10 straight days, over 60 hours of footage, and 760 GB later, I finally have our entire Mini DV library digitized. So here are a few analog clips I didn't think I still had that I discovered on one of the Mini DV tapes I captured during this whole process.

LIKE SHOPPING CART CLIPS!!?? Well if you're a fan of CKY or Jackass, then chances are you probably do!!! Found one of our shopping cart clips on a couple of compilation videos on YouTube. Decided to share one of them with you. That clip is definitely one of our craziest in my opinion. When Cody gunned my Blazer, it scared the shit out of me! But it was fucking awesome!! The clip is at 4:52 on the video. Enjoi!!! (like the skateboard team, duh, I know how to spell enjoy!)
Go here for another vehicle shopping cart stunt, except this time, it's TANDEM!! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aediGFFEnjI
Friday, March 13, 2015
Here's another compilation video from PainTV2 that features one of our clips (the Big Wheels Trash Can Bowling off Roof @ 3:10). Pretty sick video. Check it out!!

Found this countdown video of the top 10 homegrown stunts gone horribly wrong. The trash can flip clip (made a rhyme) is #6 on the countdown (don't think anyone can beat the Crazy Mike lake jump). The injuries I sustained were a 3rd degree separated shoulder and getting knocked out for a few seconds. More than likely had a concussion but never mentioned hitting my head to the doctor. So that was never checked out.. Although, if you've seen the extended video of the trash can stunt, you know I was seeing stars by the way I was talking after I came to. Anyway, just wanted to blog about this. Thanks to PainTV2 for the video.

Posted 4 new videos to the YouTube channel from our "video library". :P First, there's 36 seconds of some old school DC skate footage. Second, there's that time where a passed out Jericho almost got thrown into an icy hot tub. Third, remember that underground smash hit, "I Go To Blinn"? Probably not. Haha. And fourth is footage from the 2004 Texas Skate Jam. I honestly think that I'll have our entire "library" or "vault" online one day, but for now, enjoy these few videos.

14 years ago to the day...
This was the first night we filmed "stunts" and thought of our name for our group / videos. If you know anything about our videos, this wasn't the first "jackass" thing we filmed. Go back to the beginning of June earlier that year, and you'll find out about a little thing called "The Pact". LOL

This is actually another re-blog, but here is the Hook Ups Tour 1999 article on the Transworld Skateboarding website. I met Bam back in April of last year in Austin at one of his Fuckface Unstoppable shows. I asked him about this article because it describes them pulling into C&J's with a flat on their U-Haul trailer and popping fireworks. The cops come and blah, blah, blah... Long story short... It appears that some of that footage is in CKY2K of them in Flatonia... I asked Bam if it was and all he said was "It could be possible!"...

This actually aired 2 years ago, but I just now recorded the episode to the DVR. So, here it is.
Saturday, October 12, 2013
Going old school with some never before released skating and soaping footage from 2002-2003. Some clips are featured on our DVDs, but mostly it's all new. But old, you know...
Thursday, October 10, 2013
Here is the TV spot for the Slap Watergun Wake Up to Scuba Steve on MTV's Pranked. This actually aired I think back in November of last year. I've had it saved on our DVR for a while now. Didn't think it was worth putting on the internet since it's such a quick shot. I thought that the clip was going to have it's own part on the show, not just used in the intro. Oh well... A TV spot is a TV spot. It was actually used in the intro on another episode, but I've never recorded it. I've had the DVR set to record all episodes of Pranked and was going through them to find our clip, but that episode never aired while I had our DVR set. Finally, said screw it. This one is enough.
