Joe Simpson — and his fellow Southern Hemi Shield Squad homies Bevan Cowan and Tom Boorman — journeyed to the U.S. of A. to party with us for our #dirtythirty. Now Joe’s a tall boy, which is one reason he rocks a TALL BOY, but we’ll just let him and Charlie Crum tell you bout it. Oh, and #demtallboyz are working on a full length edit of Joe S. while he’s here… next stop/spot Austin. If you don’t know Joe, you don’t know Jack, get familiar.
The recaps keep comin’, but this edition’s special given our very own Charlie Crumlish crafted it. Hoder and Passero hittin’ the trails, Ryan Russell with the beer-in-hand flatland sesh, Dougie Fresh’s dance moves and an airborne hot dog ramp? When you’re done enjoying this piece, check out RIDEbmx’s vid to see what was going on in Crum’s crazy head when he made HOT DOGS WHO CAN’T READ. Then SUBSCRIBE to our NewTube ‘cuz, now that Charlie’s finished making one of the best DVDs of all time, he’ll be dropping dem fresh vids on our channel.
There’s an awesome gallery on RIDEbmx from the 30 Year / Hot Dogs Who Can’t Read Party. Here’s one of the bossman laying it down with longtime Shield Soldier Fids hot on his heels. We sold out of some sizes of the HISTORY long sleeve, CAN’T KILL US tee and NAGEL PLEASE girl tank pictured in this gallery at the party, so if you didn’t get yours on site, or if you weren’t there, cop ’em in the webstore!
