We played a game called “Skate” which is a game where we exchange tricks on a skateboard. Although these kids didn’t know that many tricks, we still had a lot of fun. It doesn’t matter: if someone is a boy or girl, tall or short, black, white, or even blue we can all skate. Skateboarding is a universal language. I moved a lot as a kid.
I made a lot of mistakes, but it was worth it, because now it is more personal. Q: What is the history behind the fancy dance? A: It started in the 1920s by the Ponca people in Oklahoma. People would come out to see these Wild West shows by the busloads and a lot of the guys running the shows wanted the guys to dance fast and they called it a war dance. They weren’t going to war or anything but they just did it because it sounded cool and it got people’s attention.
Is Supreme Overrated? This is an article from my media project exploring the impact social media has had on the brand Supreme has been around for quite a while: eighteen years to be exact. When the first Supreme store opened it’s doors on downtown Manhattan’s Lafayette Street in 1994, James Jebbia, its founder, didn't really know much about the skateboarding crowd but was intrigued by its rebelliousness and creativity. He worked hard, then and now, to be true to that scene by hiring local skaters to work in the store to appeal to his demographic. He said himself in an interview with the New York Times, “A lot of the kids from downtown NY are very, very particular”.

Berry decided to use all his profits from his the success of his songs into producing. He found out about ‘The Miracles’ in 1957 and after that he started making a portfolio of popular artists.

Soon Motown became a successful independent company that recorded some of the most successful groups and songs such as ‘The Supremes’, ‘Stevie Wonder’, ‘Four Tops’, ‘Martha and Vandellas’, ‘Marvin Gaye’, Jr. Walker & the All-Stars’, ‘Michael Jackson’ and ‘Smokey Robinson’.
Long trick lines increase stamina. A line is a series of tricks involving obstacles on a street or skate park. “Your quadriceps and calves get a lot of work,” says Trey Street from RedOrbit, a science and health website. Getting into shape with skateboarding requires a lot of dedication. It could take months to learn a desired trick or it could take a few different attempts to land huge tricks such as an ollie down a flight of stairs.

Six Flags Magic Mountain: A Home for the Adrenaline Junkies When I was young, I could take Popsicle sticks and within about an hour, have a toy roller coaster. Actually, I could take just about anything and turn it into a roller coaster. I grew up racing bikes, and because I was always being invited to races near amusement parks, I kind of got used to the adrenaline rush from the fast rides. I didn’t really know what adrenaline was; I thought it was just plain fun. Now that I have grown up, I understand what that rush of being on the rides really was.
Leonard Bernstein was the controversial songwriter for “West Side Story” which talks about gangs and relating to politics on an ordinary level, day-to-day basis. Lenny Bruce was a controversial comedian that was very open about sexuality and most of his jokes were about the subject, he was very successful and a lot of people found him to be hilarious. But at that time sexuality was very much controlled by the American government.

Matthew seems to be right on target, but it seems Taylor is advanced for his age. This might be hereditary as my uncle is 6'3. Apart from appearance I got to witness their physical abilities in action when we drove to SkyZone (an indoor trampoline park) for an evening of fun.

My younger brother Ken (age thirteen) and Taylor, went for the already established games of basketball and dodgeball with a group of kids they made friends with.
