Kill 'Em with Crudeness

The holidays mean a lot of things to a lot of people. For me, it’s all about going home, hanging with my family, and surfing some old haunts with some friends. And yesterday, just a few hours after stepping off the plane, I was in the lineup near my house when I ran into Alex Smith. I’ve known Alex for a while now and we got to talking about nothing in particular—mostly that Jordy Smith had to be way too old to be in the Hot 100 again this year…right?—when the topic turned to the blogosphere.

The blogowhat now?

I know, we’re about two years late launching this thing, but better late than never, right? But apparently, we’re not alone in our tardiness as Alex mentioned that he just launched his own blog as well, complete with cats disembowling rodents (I know, who wouldn’t want to click on that!), an awkward moment in Santa Cruz, and some top-shelf surfing. So as the opening installment, I figured I’d post a blog about someone else’s blog. A cardinal sin in inducing Web traffic? Perhaps. But Alex rips…and he’s got photos of cats eating rats, and even a dude drinking his own piss. If that’s not a stellar advertisement, then I don’t know what is.
