48 Hours of Sin

Two days in Las Vegas, NV with Freckles
 Loading up Mike's Prius like a Tetris level
Scooter not included
A little Circle J on the way
Very relaxing drive from then on
 MySpace whiteout filter for the appearance of perfect skin
 Hit the OG Del Taco in Barstow
They have a special menu here where they just put tomato hats on existing classics
 I got the Barstow exclusive Bun Taco
No shame here
 I like to think a cat ran across the keyboard while they were typing this sign out
We met up with our connect, artist Evan Rossell  pictured here, Fairfaxing in front of his mural
He was the one who lined us up with Skullcandy to play a show at the CES convention
We got to the convention just in time to catch the Cosmonauts play the rest of their 2 hour (!) set
Apparently their shit was going viral
Skullcandy treated us to some Moroccan food, belly dancers and all
Our Moroccan Long Islands quickly turned into Turkish coffee since we had to bail early to play a show downtown at The Griffin
After dinner Josh was feeling
Over to the Griffin on Fremont street 
I was surprised how cool downtown was and bummed I didn't visit earlier 
The next day we decided to go inside at the world largest convention before we played our set at 4pm
Here some DJ that no one knows plays someone else's song while some girls shake it for old dudes on cell phones
"My word!, I can see the goosebumps on her fanny!"
 Virtual reality driving simulation where your wife isn't in the car nagging you
 Punks for profit
Wait...punks don't wear suits!?
 Definition so sharp you can film it and trick your friends into thinking you have an exciting life visiting all the national parks
New software that can make anyone's singing voice sound good
CC: Eddie Vedder, dude from Stone Temple Pilots 
Iron Man wanted to wish us luck before we hit the stage
We nailed our 2 hour set and hit the dusty trail back home later that night
Thank you McKenna, Evan Rossell and Skullcandy

Rain or Shine RVCA UK part 3

Here is the photo version of the crumbs at the bottom of the Doritos bag
Funnel these into your eyes
On the way to the signing / demo in Nottingham we passed through Springfield.
That and Cockfosters gets me every time
 The writing is on the wall...
...or is it?
Scheduled signature and selfie session 
On our train ride home was fun, we had a whole car to ourselves
Josh and Harry talking about maracas probably (judging by Harry's arms)
It rained on our last day so we found shelter and stoke at this classic under the bridge spot
Luckily there was a smooth new park connected to this concrete dinosaur
 We cut our skate day short for a cultural enlightenment cram sesh at the Tate Modern
We got there with less than an hour until closing

The 3rd floor of the Tate overlooking the River Thames and Saint Paul's Cathedral 
I was tripping on this Willam Eggleston For Now book that I had never seen at the gift shop
Dear Santa...
 After the Tate we went to a video premiere at the House of Vans behind the Waterloo Station 
It was a perfect last day to end the trip on
Thank you RVCA, London for the good weather, Virgin for on-demand movies, Guinness and the Sunday roast

Rain or Shine RVCA UK Part 2

New photos from the old world continued...
Josh cools his whiskers with a frothy head of Guinness
 Kingston, London, not bad
 We we're stoked to meet up with the scholarly new Londoner Robert K. Straser
He tagged along for the Kingston stop of the tour
We stripped the paint off of this strip mall
We made the kids beanies sag off their head
We went to Waterloo Station a lot so naturally Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks was whistled all day
 Put some pants on your ugly baby
 The food spots at the train stations were insanely nice 
If they had the same stuff here in CA people would make a big deal about it and there would be lines and shit 
 Sainsbury aka Stain Berry
 Let the skate porn commence
Oh.....I so would!
 Grind the whole thing?
 There was a good 5 spots tucked in this courtyard
We were there all day
 Time really flew by here (I went there)
The golden light painted the faces of the future 
Full frontal rock by Josh Harmony Fall 2014 

Once the sun lowered some sketchy locals started rolling through

 The next day we met up at Saint Paul's Cathedral at 12
The bells chimed for what seemed like 30 minutes at 12 o'clock
 Didrick pays the double decker bus toll
 Live from the mean streets
Cheese grater roll up to tetanus bar 
 Rob reminds the people of London that he still has IT
 After stumbling upon a crow bar Josh transforms into a psychopath...
 ...and takes out our guide Jacob
"Another brick bank spot?! I said bump to bar!!!"
 Wireless is more
 King of the Hill Kevin Long
Right after this picture was taken we ate at one of the best falafel places ever 
Until next time...
