THE SADDEST SANDWICH I EVER ATE On a cold evening last December, I was at the rail station in Romford, England waiting for a train back to London. There was a little newspaper stand selling snacks and I purchased a cellophane-wrapped sandwich labelled “Ploughman’s” for 1.50£ . It was just two pieces of white bread with mayonnaise, cheese, and a couple bits of pickle. It actually tasted fine, but it was just sad. Pathetic, really. However, I loved that little sandwich in the way you would love a scrappy little mutt dog that was begging on your doorstep. God bless you, Ploughman’s.

Custom Skateboard Artwork for HANDSOME Handsome is a new skateboard company started by my friend Eric Eley. He asked me to give this sweet deck the ol’ Meth treatment and so I smeared my brains out onto it. There’s only one of these in existence… and it could be yours. UPDATE: SOLD *Eric doesn’t just make rad boards, he also makes incredible otherworldly installation sculptures.
Josh wants to know about my love of the Beach Boys. Well, let’s put it this way; in 6th grade, all the other kids were into Poison and I was into the Beach Boys. Now, no one listens to Poison and everyone loves the Beach Boys. Yeah, they are in my top 5. They made me want to move to California. And when I did, I found it hardly lived up to their music.
