The Ollie

Alright guys, I’ve been skating all day just working on the ollie. Like I said before, I am pretty much a full on beginner but at least I know how to control the board when I ride. But anyways, so far I am starting to get the hang of the form of the ollie. All I […]

Dreamseller Review

Order Dreamseller on Amazon

Brandon Novak

Joe Frantz

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time, there was a boy.  At a glance, he seems like your average all-American boy with chestnut colored hair and big blue eyes.

But this boy was different.

This boy, with the help of a piece of wood and four wheels, could fly.

With the help of a piece of wood and four wheels, he could pirouette in the air as long as one’s heart can beat three times in a row.

This boy’s talent amalgamated with this piece of wood and four wheels and produced one of the most talented and youngest skateboarders the world has ever seen.

Fate had plans for this boy, and taking a page from Robert Frost, gave him two roads he could choose from on his way to adulthood.  There was the Light road, a road that promised strength, positivity through adversity, purity, innocence, success, sobriety, the unlimited riches that is hope, love-making, and unconditional courage.  There was the Dark road, a road that promised enablers and the Devil’s salesmen instead of love, despair disguised as euphoria, evil, substance abuse, failure, deception, cowardice and empty sex that counts as a form of currency.

He was young, and the young are easily enticed, even if they were raised a few streets down from the Dark road like this boy was.

Dreamseller is the story of this boy who could soar on a handful of heartbeats choosing to spend most of his life wandering aimlessly down the Dark road, and of the characters he meets along the way, how insignificant or impactful they may be.

Dreamseller is the story of a boy who grew up to come out of the other side of that Dark road to recently celebrate his first sober birthday in 20 years, blowing out his candles, wishing for his happily ever after.

At the Skate Park —

Bryce Lawes enters the apartment without knocking, and with a casual, “Hey, what’s up, guys,” he grabs a beer from the fridge and makes himself comfortable on the cramped sofa. It’s not his apartment, but it is his fridge, and no one thinks twice about his entry to the room. He is wearing torn khaki […]

The “Break” for Skateboarders — The Skate Spot

This is something that I’ve noticed with me and almost all my friends that I skate with. This “Break” is when a skateboarder first begins to skate and he stops for no reason for a long period of time. I do not know why this occurs in skateboarders but I know when I started skating when I was about […]
