slapstik skateboards mission statement

Slapstik Skateboards arose from a series of drawings called 101 Alternate Uses for the Human Body. Slapstik's graphics were originally composed of violent acts centered on floating pastel backgrounds. As time went on, short stories and ramblings related to the drawings began to fill the backgrounds leading to more words than pictures, ultimately ending the 30 deck run. The success of Slapstik suspended the company's scheduled end in 2006, and resulted in Slapstik of the Living Dead. SSLD's concept was to recreate the original Slapstik series with a George Romero living dead twist, which ran from 2006 to 2009. The Living Dead series was soon followed by the fairy tales and fables of Mother Goose and the Brothers Grimm which illustrated classic fables and tales in a modern setting. In 2010, Slapstik returned to the pastel back drops and absurd visuals started in 2001, with animals engaging in foolish human acts in a series simply called Animals. The mission of Slapstik Skateboards is very simple. We will make fun of you.

The Ecstatistics....

....more religious shit. 1 dollar bin. pretty weird sounding. like the music from the mass murder movies where the old house, creepy parents, middle of nowhere,their kid is an axe murderer...oh yeah. Texas Chainsaw Massacre....i took it out after the first couple songs....but the name is awesome and semi-confusing...aren't burning fires a bad thing in most circumstances? do i want a ghostly love cast onto me that resembles a "burning fire"?
