This Halloween was spent in Brooklyn with Melissa and her best friend,Delia. Delia had a raging birthday/Halloween party complete with candy, Dead Mau5, fake-ass Englishmen, and bomb-ass pancakes. She even allowed us to sleep on her bed as the sun came up. Thanks so much to Delia and all of her roommates, I had a great time.

Early morning last week I met some of the crew as well as Jamie Heim for what is quickly becoming known as "The Breakfast Club" session at the Bethlehem Skate Plaza. Don't let the term club put you off, everyone is welcome, just trying to beat the heat and the crowds.
This is the first coverage my skating has gotten in awhile. I would like to thank Homebase610.com for posting it and Jamie for hooking it up. Here are the stills and sequences, Check them and the rest of Jamie's work at JHeimphotography
Homebase and the Lehigh Valley Artist network are proud to present Andy Vasquez in his first LVAN solo show at Homebase Skateshop entitled "The Furnitural Figures" Opening First Friday July 2nd , from 7-10pm
Andy V is one of the second gen Hometeam crew. By that, I mean, That there was a day when Andy didn't have a mustache and a good smith grind, but always had Valley Pride and a open attitude about skating and its history. As much as I try to be social with everyone, there is always one or two people that stand out as being genuine and sincere in the way they interact, I always saw that in Andy V. Over the years Andy has become a player in the game, filming video parts , getting photos, as well as school and his love of woodwork off the board. This July 2nd Andy is letting us deeper into the art of his woodworking. Don't miss this special First Friday with the LVAN , Homebase Skateshop, and Andy Vasquez himself.
Sunday May 30th is going to be a BIG day. Not only is Manny Mania going to be hosted by Homebase at the Banana Factory ( I still hear Gwen Stefani anytime I spell that) but right after Homebase wants you to help celebrate their 8 year anniversary at Starters Riverport. DJ's , LRG Video Premier, Raffles and guest bartenders from 5BORO Skateboards, as well as the release of the 5BORO x Danny Pensyl x Bethlehem Skateplaza Deck ( that will be available for purchase that night, and Danny will be in the house if you want it blessed) I'd love to see you all there, let's celebrate.

This invite only art show, music display, was by far the darkest thing going on a Sunday night in Allentown. Held in a secret warehouse, Paul put his brain on display for select friends and family. Aside from the arrest for inciting (don't say "Fuck Off, Pigs" to Atown Police) it was a great event. I hope Paul keeps putting himself and his art out there, I'm backin it till then.
My name is Josh Novak and I'm a Skateboarder from the 610. I love to paint and collect things. With this Blog I will try to pass on all the local events I can, including all skateboarding (local gossip?) , Music I'm into at the time (possible Downloads?), all the info on what art projects and shows I'm working on at the time, along with some general entertainment. I hope you all enjoy, Josh.
