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.

i been collecting some shit....


...over the last year and store it all in my basement...it started when i was sick of having lame skate photos on the wall of my last apartment and went with my girl to an antique store. only to stumble across a "phenomenon" called the dollar record racks....amazing shit lay in those things...weird stuff (like the lil kids album below)...i bought most for photo purposes to "spruce" up the bedroom. i eventually got a record player and now listen to them quite often...i like this Elvis one...he sings christian hymns on the record and they sound pretty good...never been a big Elvis dude, i thought, but the photo is sick...
