Shit Talke Corner with Ron Allen
Shit Talke Corner with Ron Allen

EACH ISSUE WE GIVE ONE LUCKY FELLOW THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEW AS MUCH SHIT AS THEY CAN ABOUT A FEW RANDOMLY CHOSEN TOPICS. THE ONLY RULE BEING, THEY CAN SAY ABSOLUTELY NOTHING POSITIVE ABOUT THE TOPIC WHAT SO EVER. THIS TIME AROUND WE LET LEGENDARY H-STREET SKATER RON ALLEN TAKES A STAB AT OUR SHIT TALK CORNER.

Ronald Reagan
“Reaganomics” never benefited me, I just wasn’t rich enough. The number of people (white, black, and Hispanic) below the poverty level increased in almost every year when Reagan was in office. Under Regan the national debt nearly tripled because Reagan wanted to give tax cuts to the wealthy. He started the phenomena of actor turned governor turned president. Our current governor would love to try and change the law so he can do it but, no way Arnold!

The Mega Ramp
What kind of bullshit is this? My man Jake Brown falls 45 feet and the first people to him are Pierre Luc, Tony Hawk and Bob Burnquist, where were the paramedics? Why wasn’t he strapped to a board, rolled off in an ambulance to make a triumphant return after he visited a hospital and got checked out? That’s a shame! The Mega Ramp will take a life one day.

Books
When it comes time to move, books suck. You will carry 20 to 25 boxes of those suckers every time you move. You try and keep a decent collection to stay educated and you wind up throwing your back out because of them.

50mm Wheels
Changing your wheels nightly has got to suck! Damn things are like big beads in a sixties necklace. If you have to skate far in the hood you’re bummed on these little fuckers. If you are stupid enough to skate 50mm wheels you’ve got to carry an extra set just in case, now what is that?

Photo Incentives
What are you getting them? Who’s giving them? Where they at? How can I get my name on whatever list so I can get mine? See. That’s what I thought; there obviously is no such thing, just a lot of bullshit. I got them earlier in my career but I think it’s a bullshit myth now.
