    Saying First! is gay.
    Also, skateboarding culture’s overrated.

    Funny, I was just googling Dash Snow yesterday. For some reason I felt like rereading Gavin’s memorial of him that dually was a portrait of the zeitgeist of New York in the 00s. It’s worth checking out if you’ve never read it, or worth a reread if you have.

    Oh, now I remember: some Gawker commenter yesterday wrote that at his funeral, Paz De La Huerta approached his grieving baybe mama and said something like ‘I can’t believe he’s gone. His dick was so hard when we fucked last week.’ Just went looking for it and it looks like Gawker removed it.

    If it’s a chronicle of New York’s skateboarding scene in the early ’90s, and Snow was born ’81 — he sure sports a thick beard for a thirteen year old.

    How cliched. A free slice of pizza and a beer with each book? He stole that from Mailer and Hemingway.

  6. c'mon says:

    I remember that picture of Mike D from the Beastie Boys Ill Communication album, which came out precisely around the time I started skateboarding. neat.

  7. WotS says:

    Yeah, that’s not the skate so much as the general downtown scene. And, as pointed out above, is not just the early 90s.

  8. Patrick Bateman says:

    None of the above photos are in the book…

    It’s a bunch of leftovers from his skate photo days. Not even good skate photos. The book appears to be printed on photocopy paper at Kinko’s. The Gonz was not there.

    Cool guys like me were there, though. I am a 35 year old systems administrator at a financial services firm. I guess there were a couple 20 year old chicks, though. But really only 2. The rest of it was washed up dudes. Kind of like how Manhattan is these days.

    Wasn’t worth the trip.
