SKATE OR DIE / Claus Grabke

This kid I had a crush on in 8th grade used to skate with me in this park next to my house. He obsessed over Claus Gradke and some days we'd watch some videos he was in while his mom made us snacks. But mostly I'd listen to myself breathing and try to inch my hand closer to his. Years later when some friends and I would skate together, we used to watch these old vhs tapes saved from the 90s in order to shred super hard. Youtube has a large volt of old skate videos. Bit's of Wheels of Fire is on there. Also which Claus' band, Eight Days plays the opening title song. Such a good catchy song. Any way, I came across this video of claus - the guy has a museum displaying his boards from 30 years.

SKATEBOARDFIEBER MUSEUM PRESENTS:
The Claus Grabke retrospective / exhibition

Without doubt Claus Grabke is the european Skateboard legend ! No other German Skater had ever such a commanding position as Claus had in the 80ies and 90ies. From Titus Skates (1983) he went to Powell Peralta (1985),to Madrid (1986) and later in the same year to Santa Cruz Skateboards.

Repeated German and European champion, Euro-cup and Monster Mastership winner. Founder of a Fashion label and a skateboard magazine. Moderator at MTV. Studio owner and producer of considerable international bands, as well as uncounted and unknown quantity newcomer-bands... and singer, front man of the bands such as Eight Dayz, Thumb or the Alternative Allstars.

The museum shows all its PRO MODELS AND boards, allot of his skate memorials, photos and much more besides. AS a SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT the father of the "SCREAMING HAND" JIM PHILIPS himself did, a new interpretation of its well-known board graphics, which all had the topic time, and designed a very special graphic for Claus´s 30 anniversary.






here's the opening song: What's so strange about me

Eight Dayz is also on myspace. But fucking wasn't a month ago...

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
