Ruby Tuesdays-‘Tis the Season

Hey guys! Welcome back to another installment of Ruby Tuesdays!

As you may have noticed, Spring is here. The weather is getting nicer, the days are getting longer, and there is pollen on EVERYTHING. I hate pollen.
It’s been making it quite difficult to get motivated to go out and skate, by the time I get out my allergies start to act up. Which sucks, cause it’s getting to be perfect skating weather now, and school is almost out.
Lee brought up a good point earlier, that this is the second best time of the year to skate only because of the pollen. Besides that, the weather is amazing and the days are getting longer.

Granted that not too much skating has been going on for me, we’ve been keeping up with our band, Space Orphan.
We played a show last Friday at the ARTS AGAINST HIERARCHY DIY art show at The Arts Exchange, downtown. It was quite an interesting experience, the Arts Exchange is this super run down, old building tucked away behind some trees off of I-20 East. It was a benefit art show with all proceeds going towards the building of the Atlanta Social Center, with free admission. I wasn’t really sure what to expect when we arrived there. It was a cool vibe, definitely not what I expected though. We hung out for about an hour, checked out some local art, and watched our new friend Josh Loner play an acoustic set in the main hallway for about 20 minutes. The guy has some interesting subject matter in his songs, and he was really nice too. He had a powerful voice, that dude could wail!

Ruby Tuesdays: Randoms

Welcome back for another installment of Ruby Tuesdays!

As of lately, I haven’t really had too much of a chance to blog, just trying to get back on it. I’ve been pretty busy here at the shop and outside of work and school, working on the whole music thing with Tyler and Vince. Pretty stoked on it. We’ve got a lot we’re working on, a lot of writing, trying to give some more structure to these songs.

By the way, our band Space Orphan is playing at the Masquerade this Saturday for The Wicked Winter Festival! It’s our first show! Tickets are $15; try and come out, it will be super fun, all local bands all day from 11am to 11pm. You can come get tickets from Tyler Lee or myself up at the shop, we need to sell them by Thursday, so just let us know. We aren’t sure of what time we’ll be playing yet because ticket sales determine time slots, so help us get a good time!
Here’s the facebook link to the event, we’d appreciate the support! https://www.facebook.com/events/481276491910189/

Ruby Tuesdays – Back on it (Thank you Skateboarding)

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a good winter break and a Happy Holiday season!
We got super busy up here at Ambush over the holidays and that made it a little hard to keep up with this blog.
Thank you nonetheless for coming through and keeping us busy!

Welcome to another installment of Ruby Tuesdays!

I’ll start with a question: How many of you guys love music/playing music?
It seems like something that people don’t typically keep on their mind, but music is a big player in everyday life. I know it is for me! I can’t get it off my mind, I constantly think about the music I listen to, the songs I’m learning, and even songs that I’m working on creating! I can’t get enough of it. How did I come to love music so much?

Josh Butler Benefit Game of Skate

Josh Butler is family. Ever need a friend, Josh is there to oblige. Looking for a good time, Josh is your man. Need someone to talk to, Josh will listen. Josh has all of the characteristics you would want in a brother, friend, team rider, son, and even your daughter’s boyfriend. So, when Josh desperately needs your help, you better give it your all.

For those of you that don’t know, Josh Butler was shot in the abdomen during a robbery last year. He has made a full recovery, but his medical bills are devastating. And although Josh would never ask for our help, we know how truly deserving and thankful for the help he would be.

The Josh Butler Benefit Game of Skate raised over $2,000 for the Josh Butler Medical Fund. And, it was a super good time. Special thanks to all of you that came out to support. Your participation went a long way towards helping Josh get his life back to normal.

Josh Butler Benefit Jam

The Ambush Josh Butler Benefit Jam at Progressive Skatepark was a success. Lets cut to the chase: We raised $3,015 throughout the event through raffles and entry fees. Everybody was happy. Josh got a good chunk of change to help out his medical bills and every single kid walked out with at least one prize. If you didn’t walk away with something, then you probably were not there.

The epic grom sessions were epic, the adult jams were insane, and the mini ramp jams were pretty wild. I don’t know what the parents are feeding their kids up there in Canton, but some of those 13 and under kids were hitting more rails than the big boys. The best trick event down the double set, big hubba, and the bank got the crowd screaming. One kid tre-flip 5-0’d the big hubba with a bottom grill in his mouth. Another board flipping guru landed a triple dolphin flip (or foward flip, or thunder flip whatever the hell you want to call it) down the bank. Mike at Progressive had quite a few brains to clean up off the floor because that kid BLEW MINDS.
