I cant wait!
FRANGA might not be finished in time
where’s that braden?
far out is that for real or is it a wind up
picture is of the large left handed kidney, under construction at the Frankston (melbourne) skatepark. Home (if they finish it on time) of the 2006 mossjam.
I dont even have photoshop!
Booking flights for me and the grom now…
People of Charlie, do not be fooled by the so-called picture of so-called Frankston bowl.
The real Braden may or may not own Photoshop, but it is obvious from this image that our intrepid webmaster has himself been uploaded from this earth and then copied and pasted back into our reality as the perfect imitation of himself by an alien race of Borfbots.
Here we see Bradenbot standing in the middle of a crater left by the landing of a massive flying saucer battlecruiser sent here from the galaxy known as The Big Compresor.
Soon this very site will be used to organise and instruct masses of mesmerised middle aged humans who will be sacrificed from the edge of the crater in a bizarre alien ritual known as 'The Drop In.
In a bowl this big, no one can hear you slam! Watch The Coping! Green Kryptonics are People! Read my book: Skatebaords of the Gods!
Borfbots are already everywhere. Last night they came to my house dressed in strange white coats. I am now being probed in a room full of nothing but rubber ramps …

How to else to expalin such inhuman aerila skills?
I shall attempt to provde more informaton at zis Viverwood of vich you are speakink, but I have sustained damach to my foot of a serious nature and cannot presently ambulate, let alone skateulate. It may be necessary for Skate Exec to take direct control of our last stand … but be quick my human friend, it is time for me to receive another probe …

Better decide which side you’re on before the MOSS Jam, dude - for a Melbournian it really means Meat Of Sydney Skaters (all Melbournians are living-dead - check out the skin colour!). You’ll either be IN the Jam or eating the Jam.
Awww Linda your pic didn’t work, what are you doing these days? I heard you were affected by the filming of ‘The Excorcist’ so greatly your life took a dive pretty much since.
MOSS = Dawn of the Dead huh? I’lll be sure to bring my George A. Romero instruction manual on un-dead defence (a baseball bat).
Baahahahahaaaaa… Was that you speaking in tongues Bill? That was bloody hilarious. I have to show that to Tim.
I’m going to lop my right hand off, replace it with a chainsaw, tote a boomstick, and change my name to Ash. Look out you MOSS deadites, The Army of SOS is coming to get some sugar baby. Groovy!
Nah - you want the Shawn of the Dead cricket bat methinks.
And Erik - you wanna lay off the peyote with absinthe chaser painkillers mate. They are affecting your accent.
What’s the deal?? where, when??
I have put together a sort of accomodation guide for interstaters. Thanks to Wedge for some extra details.
Bowl tour is on Friday the 7th of April and the MOSS Corporate Jam is on saturday the 8th of April. The Jam will be held at Northcote Skatepark and for the interstaters looking for accomodation I have checked out the nearest motels. I’ve given directions from each motel using public transport, but there will be MOSSers travelling to the venue from all directions. With a bit of organising I’m sure we can arrange to pick up interstaters from their accomodation on the day. You can
