He was spotted in hawaii last summer skating the Hickam Air Force base skate bowl right after his release, and if this picture is any indication, he's back in the game. Its awesome to see guys still ripping it up and skating because it's what they love. To get some perspective on how long he's been around, I remember going to the public library in 6th grade, n looking at books on skating. Hosoi was literally on every other page.

Back in Hawaii, and things have actually been good. It was totally random, but my buddy Rich and I got free tickets to a sneak preview of the latest film starring Will "big willy style" Smith. I didn't expect much since it didn't seem like a movie fit for the Fresh Prince. They were grilling everyone at the entrance for camera phones or video cameras, any kind of recording device. They told us a million times during our hour wait in line, yet we saw about 20 or 30 idiots get turned away for having camera phones! dumbass!. The movie turned out to be pretty funny, with Will as this date doctor that is able to get you into your dream relationship in 3 dates. Of course when it comes to himself, he screws it up at every turn. Yada yada yada, Will and Eva Mendez hook up in the end. A very pg-13 film, but you don't really notice since it is so funny. Those are the best kind of movies. I would rather have a movie be rated R, to keep it interesting, rather than water it down with a lower rating, but this is one of those few that can appeal to all crowds. Good to see Will back in the game. Highly recommend it to those who actually go to movies instead of downloading them. This is one of those suprise films that are actually good in january.

Its been nice to be back in Cali for a few weeks, what with all the nieces and nephews now. Its hard to keep track. I ended out spending 200 bucks at friggin Toys'R'Us. Overall, I even made out pretty good on the presents angle. Heres my haul of gifts:
1. Poker Chip Set
2. Taschen's 1000 Favorite Websites book
3. Mr. T in your pocket --------->
4. White church shirt
5. Wienerschnitzel skateboard
The web book is pretty good, its all photos of tight websites. The best though, is the Mr. T in your Pocket. Its a keychain thing that plays all of Mr. T's best saying. You know, I pity the fool, and Don't gimme no jibbajabba. Its classic. My sister saw it on Leno's worst christmas gifts, and knew I had to have it. New Years we all sat around and played cheesy board games, pretty uneventful. I'm gearin up to go back home to Hawaii, but first I got the General Council Meeting with my Indian Tribe on wednesday. That always adds color to my month.
