News From September 2002

Foundation Foundation is kicking arse and taking names!

Someone (Beagle) at Foundation has an eye for talent (Beagle), cause all of the F am boys are out there! In particular is Leo Romero. This kid came from the Inland Empire and is destroying the coast. Did you get a gander of him at the Coup D’etat? Damn! He tied with Jon Allie and took half of the 3rd place prize money. Leo also donated 15% of his winnings. Maybe he will buy a car with the rest?

Beagle and the F team are at it again. They are constructing or should I say destructing a new video. The 29 Days of Madness and Mayhem video is a tour video from the highly successful Foundation California tour. There will be lots of footy from the tour plus some other things they’ve gathered since then. Plans are for it to be out by Christmas.

Jon West has secured the cover for the next TWS Biz Magazine.

Has anyone been seeing all the coverage Corey Duffel has been getting? He is on top of his game! And from undisclosed sources, he’s been on top of your girl.

Gareth Stehr is getting a Frontline checkout in an upcoming Heckler.

Daniel Shimizu decided to get out of LA and is finally moving closer to Command Headquarters. As a matter of fact he’s moving right next door to Justin Roy and Chris Jones! That’s right folks you can now see him exploiting the streets of San Diego. I’m hearing about some kind of Tum Yeto compound that everyone is moving into.

Toy Machine Winner for August!

Welp, it's that time of the month again. The time when our A.I. thingy picks out a random winner for the Tum Yeto website contest. Low and behold the winner is Jason Johnson! I was talking to Jason for a bit and he couldn't quit expressing how pshyced he was on winning. Since he seemed like a nice enough guy and since Toy Machine is the next company on the list. He wins a whole bunch of Toy Machine product. He walked all the way from Omaha Nebraska to pick up an Ed Templeton Copy board (its copyrighted), a set of 53mm Dead Monster wheels, a newly designed Dead Monster buckle belt, a pair of jeans, a Trademark sweatshirt (trademarked), some patches, a t-shirt, the striped sweater, a Monster cap, the Bloodstains beanie, a classic video titled Heavy Metal, a transmissionater wallet, plus some buttons and stickers. It was a nice little package. Congrats to Jason!

If you'd like to be a winner and not a loser, you should enter the contest. Just use the scroll down ally oop menu bar and click on contests. The ally oop menu bar is excellent for navigating the Tum Yeto site. It's really cool! You should try it.
