Thank all of you who made it out to our blow-out sale the past few days. You guys got slamming deals and we got to empty our merchandise. We are still open until the end of this month, and we still have some more goodies to get rid of so come on in and don’t be scared. Big ups to Milton, Shit Show, Kyle, and Caleb. We are open today so come on in and take advantage . Now, since Mr. Paul Shier was goodly enough to ride for our skateboard shop let us feast our eyes on one of my all time favorite skaters with a wicked tre flip. Yeah Shier!
Well, here is something for you. We are still open all month and we still can get you what you need. Here at The Armory we are big Chewy Cannon fans. If you do not know who he is then that is o.k., but he is most likely one of the most underrated, under the radar pros out there in the Professional skateboarding game. Skating faster than a banshee on crack, he makes skateboarding look fun. Plain and simple. Chewy is now on a sick company out of Slam City called PALACE. The team is top shelf, and if it is coming out of Slam then you know it must be good. So, without any further ado, let us watch some Chewy footage. It will make you want to get on your board, haul ass, and eat shit- Dave Ashley
With joy comes pain. Having said that, I would like to announce that we will be closing our doors at the end of this month. It has been a great two years, and the experience will stay with us forever. Words cannot express the gratitude that Chris and myself have for all of you who have supported the shop over these years. We have met so many people, some of whom that I am proud to call my friends and you know who you are. We would like to thank all the companies that have allowed us to do some cool shit, especially Gabe Clement at Podium, Jim Thiebaud from Deluxe, Ryan Dolliver and Wu Welsh from Expedition, Danny, Rob G and Danny Supa from The BLVD, and Kevin and Steve from RAW. To all the local skaters who supported us, from Devin to Rodrigo Peterson I am going to miss hanging out with you guys at the shop, talking shit and watching videos. Thanks to all the cool ass parents who took their kids shopping at our shop other than the other lesser known vessels down the street. This has been a big part of our life and it would not have happened if it were not for all of you walking through our doors. Thank you all so very, very much. Now, it is time to thank you with a huge sale of epic proportions going on for the entire month. Come by, give us a hug and take advantage, we are practically giving shit away. Its been weird writing this so shit, I will just see you at the shop- Dave Ashley
Its been a while since I did one of these so I figured what the hell? Lets get down with some beats. Today we shall get some insight to a group from The Bronx called THE ULTRAMAGNETIC MC’S. Originally, the group was founded by crazy ass Kool Keith, aka Doctor Doom, aka The Black Elvis. What set the group apart back in the late 1980′s, early 90′s was its sampling technics, bizarre lyrics, Kool Keith, and basically fucked up imagery and sound. It was new, different, fresh, and underground to a certain point which set them apart from other rap groups at the time.
One thing I did not know was that bitch ass Tim Dog was once a member of the group. I was not feeling his “Fuck Compton” song at the time of his release. He really tried to get his name out there and that was the only way he could as NWA was blowing up at the time. So, let us get down with a true, original NY rap group from The Bronx. They do not make em’ like they used to.
Happy Friday folks. I hope all of you have had a better week than I did. We have a re-stock of Independent trucks today, so come on in and peep the selection. I have tried other trucks and Indy’s are simply the best. Do not believe me? Come by and cop a pair for yourself and then the truth will set you free.
Happy Tuesday all. From this month of July all the way to December, we have offerings from RAW dropping each month. Now, if you are a nubie to The Armory then let me educate you. RAW is a skater owned company from New England that sets themselves apart from the rest due to their products being made entirely in the United States of America. RAW is a acronym for “READY AMONGST WILLING” and it is a true link to the founding of our great nation. We could not be happier to carry RAW soft and hard goods in the shop! RAW also does so much for the skate scene in New England. Below is a video from RAW and it is entitled” SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL YOUNG BUCK”. The kids are doing it for the love of skateboarding and that is how it used to be folks.
I hope all of yous are enjoying the heat, its been hot as Hades lately. The summer has been off to a great start, and the best thing is that it does not get dark till about 9 o’clock. Now, below I am sure you have seen this, if not then boy are you in for a real treat. The man, Torey Pudwill, literally KILLING the game and raising the bar to unearthly standards. Video game shit.
Happy Tuesday. I hope all of you had a safe and sane 4th of July weekend! It was hot as hades where I live so we kept it pretty mellow, not trying to melt. On a different note, I am finally able to wear shoes so all of you who have been coming to the shop and have been subjected to the site of my feet my apologies. Yuck. We have some new stuff coming in this week and you know I will let you know when it does. Now, lets watch some skateboarding.
It is officially summertime now. What a great time when you were a kid. Just waking up, not having to go to school, figuring out where and who you are going to skate with that day, parents are not home, you feel like a grown up little person. Pretty liberating. Schools closed, so that means its time to hop some fences and skate some nice spots otherwise off limits during the school year. You want to skate, you need a board. Do not space , we have what you need. I’m telling you, you need to try a Skate Mental deck…these shits got POP! Really, the boards are great, and its not wrong to look down at your board and get a nice little chuckle over the graphic on it. I am a fan. We also have those new Skate Mental tees in as well, these babies go fast so get while the getting is good. Also, in the next week or so we will be getting in some new ill gear from my RAW just in time for the nice summer weather. I will keep you posted. Now, lets watch John Motta. He rip doo! Plus we carry his board.
