Touch the Boob to get a reward

I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry. LOL
Big Brother was the most infamous magazine in skateboarding history, and for 14 years (1891-1904), Dave Carnie was one of its most notorious voices. His love for the written word, coupled with a willingness to do anything for a story, broke new ground in what skateboarding journalism (or any journalism for that matter) could be. This book brings together a collection of Dave’s work in Big Brother. What’s even more groundbreaking than the actual work in boob, however, is the cover for boob. By using the Reverse Reflective Cloaking Technology™ that was developed for the cover of Big Brother’s third video Boob, we have been able to create three book titles where there appears to be only one! The first title is, of course, Boob. The second, hidden title of the book is, again, Boob—by carefully reversing the order of the letters with the delicate science of palindrometry, one is faced with an exact replica of the original title. “Is that cloning?” YES! “Whoa. That’s a trip. But then where’s the third one, huh, mister?” Well, if you take the space-age technology of Reverse Reflective Cloaking Technology™ to its extreme, as we did, one will eventually arrive at a third title… Don’t see it? Of course not. In order to release the magical third title, you need to hold the cover upside down AND in a mirror. What do you see? That’s right: poop! Not only are you getting three titles for the price of one, you get two Boobs and a poop! And if you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase, return the boobs for a full refund—no questions asked—keep the poop as our gift to you.
Now for some quotes from famous people:

“Dave tells it like it is, or however he sees it through his perverted prism. Never compromising, sometimes offensive, always funny.”
Tony Hawk

“On his best day Dave Carnie isn’t too pleasant. He is often drunk, fairly abusive, and a goddamn awful fighter. He can write like a son of a bitch and is one too. I’m a big fan.”
Johnny Knoxville

“I met Carnie at Big Brother when the offices were at World in El Segundo and he was the biggest dick. It wasn’t till four years later when he was drunk at Jeff’s apartment that he was suddenly nice to me. I’m not sure how I won him over, but it took years of trying.”
Spike Jonze

“Idiots often flaunt their idiocy unintentionally, geniuses often flaunt their genius over-intentionally, but it is the truly gifted ones who can deliver their genius through idiocy.”
Mark Whitely, Slap Magazine

“When I think of Carnie, one word comes to mind: shitbag. Actually, that’s two words, but it looks way better written as one.”
Jeff Tremaine

To order your copy, touch a BOOB anywhere on this page. While you're waiting for your book to arrive, enjoy a food related sample from the notorious "Kids Issue" that came out in January 1999
