    Ding Repair Tutorial

    I know all you kooks are riding tufflight tanks out there but for the few who are riding foam and glass this tutorial is for you.


    1.) So you just got a ding. First things first, how bad is it. Most dings arent that bad so you can probably get a few more sessions before fixing it. WHen you accumalate enough dings to warrant mixing some resin your ready for step two

    2.) By now youve picked up a fair amount of water in your board so youve got to dry it out. The best way to do is to leave in locked in your car for a few days in the sun. Through a process called evapouration. If you live somewhere where it is cold most the time I have heard of some guys up in Maine using gasoline to flash dry it.. but I have not tried this myself. Your board is ready for step three

    3.) Get your moms ironing board and make sure you find a well sealed room. You dont want any magic board healing fumes to escape would you? ALways buy polyester it is much more effective for step four

    4.) BY now you should be pretty f*kin high. Dump that sh** on those dings and get out. Listen to pink floyd echos while watching static on a tv for a few hours

    5.) While your away from the room... the magic air you were inhaling coats your board and works its magic on it as well. The elves that you discovered and wished you to dance with them are now hard at work hammering the glue you laid out into the seems.

    6.) By the time you figure out that you `already heard this song` (make sure you put the album on repeat mode) your repair will be done. Give it a nice lick to make sure its dried.

    7.) NOw your ready to go drop in some more!

    **If you come back and it looks like your board melted.. or it looks like it got beat up. Your board was either unpure or evil and the gnomes had to destroy it. **

    I am totally speechless. Can you fix my board KookieMonster?

    On step 3 you forgot to add the step where you need to light a match close up to the ding to see better to inspect it.

    And when you "implode", yes, implode as the fumes rush to the flame source, you become miniaturized instantly and completely coated in a super glossy resin.

    It makes you impervious to cold and water, with just enough air to keep you alive while you surf the 8 inch bombing beach break ripples that have been rocking the whole east coast this November.

    Echoes could very well have been the most profound (or "prolific" as they say on here) track ever recorded by the Pink Anderson/Floyd Council folks. It was the turning point where the band truly moved past Syd's drug-laced influence and towards their greater movements. Meddle is a sick album, although if I'm picking two Floyd discs to bring with me to a desert island they're Animals and The Final Cut. Ummagumma will always be worth having even if you don't listen to it, simply for the best recursive album cover in history. It's the type of schitt that you can really talk about with chicks to break the ice. Instead of "want to see the poster in my room?" you've got "hey Betty, you gotta see this album cover; it's in my room."

    You should start making tutorial videos for YouTube. These excellent techniques need to be shared with the world!

    In 1977 I saw Pink Floyd at the Miami Baseball Stadium. They opened with "Wish You Were Here" cover to cover, then did "Animals" cover to cover, then encored with a couple of songs off "Dark Side of the Moon". It was magical. During the Animals portion, they flew a giant pink pig over the crowd, and it crashed into the crowd due to the wind. When they did the song Sheep, you could hear the baaaaing going around and around the stadium and dogs barking from random directions echoing all over the place. It was special and awesome. True genius.

    Saw the same tour in MSG that year. Only, without the pig barfing on the crowd. And, yah, you're spot-on: "true genius."

    Sickness. Not on the same level since it was just him, but Waters solo tour in 2000 was an unreal set and performance. They did same thing with peripheral sounds from Animals album. Funny you say "magical" because that's what Roger told us the atmosphere was like at the venue that night just prior to him doing the encore. Still might be best show I've ever seen and I've been at a few rodeos. Glad you brahs appreciate the finer points of life.

    I'm not the biggest fan of the later years but MLOR is pretty awesome. That was my soundtrack to a few altered nights.
