What ? Rematch ? If you know, your excited. If you don’t… you will be. Back on May 2nd, 2007, there was a legendary race. A skateboard race. Why ? Thats stupid ? Who races skateboards ? Why in the world would I be excited about this ? Well… because it involves Eyecandy’s very own tattooer Jeremy Justice
aka “JMFJ”, “Mr. Justice”, “Superman”… , and his best friend, Mountain of Wizard
‘s Bennett Bartley
, aka “Mongo”, “The Bartley Bag”, “Poopiepants”, “Poops”…
It all started with a little shit talking. Bennett was complaining to Jeremy about not skating anymore and saying that Jeremy was slippin. Jeremy basically laughed saying he could skate circles around him. So Bennett challenged him to a race. Race one full block of magazine street in front of Eyecandy. The winner gets 10 bucks. Ha ! Then they decided to up the ante. The winner would tattoo, his own name… “Rules” on the loser. Whoa. Bennett isn’t even a tattooer ! Haha !! This is when it got exciting. They were gonna race then and there but fortunately for all of us they set it up for 2:00 the next day. Thanks to the introweb and MySpace, (yes this is 2007) the word got out.
This was easily one of the greatest moments in the LGD History and lucky for all of us they have agreed to a rematch.
The rematch will be Sunday August 25th 2013 at 4:20 pm. As usual we will have beer and food. Following the race, music by ” Mountain of Wizard “. There will be a ” Betting Pool ” and a ” Best Sign ” contest for the race. Winner of the pool takes half the $, the other half will go to Parisite
(New Orleans DIY skatepark). The winner of the best sign contest (judged by the Eyecandy crew), will win a FREE
tattoo from Eyecandy. Again, the loser of the race will have the winner tattoo their name “Rules” on the loser. Also the loser will be subject to a spectator water balloon firing squad ! This is gonna be awesome !!!!! Party starts at 3:00 so come early to place your bets !!!!! Don’t forget to make a sign.
This is an excellent example of an amazing sign. A butt, with a JMFJ tattoo on it. The rules of the sign contest are… there are no rules. Have fun with it. Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with !
