Ive had about 10 jobs in my life. Springs Brook Park, Friendly's, painting houses, landscaping, house demolition, Grenade, Composites,Purity Supreme, Eastern Boarder and this one making toilet flushers. I took it in desperate need to fund Ass. It did me well, and got me going again. But the hours 5-2am were just as shitty as the flusher. I never quit a job and said " I hate my job". But this one blew! I always woke up cranky on Saturday and never brushed off that mild no sleep hangover by Monday. Boss was a complete bozo with no respect for others. Good luck running the late night guys. You never wanted to work as a team or act like one. Actually call our new number if you need help, 1-900-BITCH-ASS!!!
Here is our catalog. This catalog is "State of the Fart"! Everybody wants to see a catalog from Ass. So here it is. Check out the first wax pieces poured by Jamie Chomo. Nice two color blends. Very tricky to make as they must bond at the right temperature. Ass wipes were a great promo piece and are still the best goggle bags, if we get the time to make a few...We need a heavy duty Singer sewing machine. Anybody got one? Riders shown are Jaime MCcloud, Nick Francke, Erich Rehbein, MFM, and Devun Walsh. The team was so nasty and still is. People were down just because..

Timberlands and some hot pink gloves from K-mart were bitchin to ride dirty in. I didnt want to wear snow pants on the trip cause they looked all stoops an ish. Usually wore jeans on the school trips to Wa-Wa. Me and Mike MCcalister were the only shredders at school at the time. He had a Burtum Performer. He was good but gave up early in the game as well as his three older brothers. I dropped all school sports in the trash about this time soccer, taekwondo, track. It was time to skate and shred and drop the jock strap...
***Burton+Forum =Burtum This will be a "colabo" I imagine in 2020

My dad took me and my friend Booger up to V.T after two or three trips to Wachusset. It snowed like crazy and it was the first time I rode powder. We were pissing ourselves going up the lift with like a foot of fresh. Waxed are boards with the wrong ski wax and stuck right off of the lift. Had to get them tuned and missed first tracks. Epic rest of the day though. I learned how to really carve that day and got a photo. Im looking for it....Thanks pops!
This was a gift to Joey McGuire from Peter Line. This was Peter's first pro-model. I mean first as in number one off of the production line went to the man himself. Division 23 was the illest company in the early 90's. Some reason they thought they needed myself on the East Coast to be pro. All the boards exploded within minutes. I must have gone through 10-15 a season. Kept a stack in the trunk of the whip, like skate decks. The owner decided it was time to team up with Mack Dawg and start Forum a few years later. My dad actually sat down with all the big dawgs and helped write the original Forum business plan. Trip on that shit!!!! He should have asked for a small percentage, instead of money. Take that info to business school kids.
