Strangers:Covered by Wye Oak

I stumbled across this video while lurking the NPR website and really liked it. Im not familiar with any other music Wye Oak has but I am familiar with this cut from The Kinks. Its on the soundtrack to The Darjeeling Limited. I really like The Kinks and The Darjeeling Limited and this song. This band did a pretty cool take on it so I figured i would pass it on. Enjoy!

Oldies but Goodies!

These are some older videos we have put together over years. There is actually some really sick footage in some of them. Sorry for the shitty taste in music. You can thank Hammond for that.

Binger is Moving to Portland!

So the time has finally come and at 3 A.M. tonight/tomorrow morning, he is hoping on the dirty Greyhound and cruising on out of town. He is moving to Portland, Oregon to slash nasty at all of the parks. He is a really close friend and for sure will be missed but im psyched hes going. We threw a going away party for Black Metal Kevin and Binger last night. It was a major grill out session and lots of beer was consumed. Black Metal is moving to Portland too. This is a few photos from the party, and we have a montage coming up with some random skating that was bound to commence at the Trife House! Good luck Binger, Memphis is going to miss you for sure!

Al Town Closing in Memphis News Paper

There was a story done about AlTown closing and Trife Street and everything. It will be printed in the Thursday July 8th paper in Local News but is fully available for viewing on the website of the Commercial Appeal! Check it out whether you are local or not. This should help add some momentum for the city to build us a park that we need so much. Don't forget to check out Trife Street for upcoming work days on the new spot. We will need a lot of help just to get it ready to roll on!

St. Louis Happy American Day!

Some of the Trife Street crew went up to St. Louis Missouri to scope out the D.I.Y. under the bridge spot they have been working on for a year or so now. They have been getting down and dirty on some crete pouring! I contacted the treasurer for the spot, Bryan Bedwell and he made sure we were hooked up with some people to skate with and took us to some skateparks and another older d.i.y. spot on some tennis courts. We had a great time and since it was the 4th of July we shot fireworks and went downtown to see a show under the arch that we watched from a rooftop. The folks and the bridge spot in STL were perfect man, we even camped under the bridge! Big ups to St. Louis and anyone else doing it for themselves. On a more suck note, we stopped at Altown for one last thrash at about 8 on the way out of town, and our beloved wall ride (the first thing we ever built) has been demolished. Its only a matter of time before its all gone. Oh well, we will be working on our new spot this week and visit St. Louis soon again. Check out what they have done and feel free to donate to them at KINGS HIGHWAY

Damn! What Happened?

Happy America, Americans!

New DIY for Memphis (coming soon)

So what if they take Altown from us? That just means its time to get on the ball and get a new spot! Out with the old, in with the new! We have been eying a spot for quite some time now and in light of the closing of Altown, we have decided to make a move. We can't do this alone so we would greatly appreciate donations of any kind. The new spot is conveniently enough for me, at the end of my street. There is nothing there right now except a natural slab gap, much like Altown when we started there. Aside from some seasonal flooding that we are working on a solution to, this spot has a lot of potential to be fully bowled in. The neighbors are psyched on the idea because they say thats exactly the kind of thing they want in their neighborhood. When we get everything ready and the funds we are going to be ready for the first pour, which will be a quarter pipe with bricks like the old one, only wider and taller! Keep posted for updates on the first work day because we will need a lot of help sweeping and prepping the area for a build. We can make this work! Help out, visit Trife Street Blog to help donate! Get to Work!

Nothing much but we can make it happen!
