Dear Diary,

Every skateboard video has a pigeon in it. It goes back to Memory Screen probably and all that random found super 8mm footage. Swainston and I were talking about how pigeons (rats with wings) are a metaphor for travel. They're everywhere you go. Hemingway used to catch them in the Jardins De Luxembourg in Paris and eat them. 17 grams of protein. Hemingway was on the Atkins diet long before anyone I guess. Here's a photo of a pigeon at a spot Dave, Weston and I were skating a few months ago:
