whenever i would hear Grosso's name the shaving eyebrows off thing would come up.

i remember seeing the video trailer above on the Thrasher website some years
ago, but it wasn't a website i looked at often and i never heard anymore about it.
having just watched an episode :
yeah, he rails against skating's transition from an outlaw culture in the 80's
(that was a California based cottage industry) to it's descent into the
corporate 2020 Olympics.
Vans (his sponsor) was a big part of that, but otherwise he's not wrong.

not that i know much about skating but seeing a skater with a Hewlett Packard
sticker on his deck isn't right.

My uncle, Davitt Kelly, died after a cancer battle this morning.

He was one cool fucking dude, and one of the forefathers of Irish pirate radio, set up many stations in the 60s and 70s. Great story about how he saved up all his money to buy a transmitter, but couldn't afford either records or decks, so would just re-transmit whatever UK station he could, and speak whenever he thought the DJ was about to, so he never knew what was coming next!

He caught once in the late 60s, and my grandfather had to go to court on his behalf, to pay the princely sum of one shilling.

RIP, Big D

Sorry, Dudley

I hope he lived to a ripe old age and the suffering didn't last too long
