A few days ago we were set up at the Scion presents RAT Skate Tour where the dopest amateur skateboard contestants came out to show their newest moves and tricks and compete for over $2500 in cash and prizes. With the tour hosted Kasmiersky Park Skatepark in Conroe, TX, die hards came out with their boards and excitement. All around great music, great weather and killer skating! We want to give a BIG ups to the Rat Skate Tour for having us come out and their support of the Houston area skate scene!

Well with anything that is worth growing there will always be change. Change is good because it lets you see that you are evolving to the place you want to be, and reaching your dreams. Sometimes friends and family can be guilty of trying to hold you back or trying to tell you what they think your dream should be by putting you in a box. Most people want you to stay the same, never change, don't evolve or strive for better. Get outside of that box and do it for yourself. "No Grits, No Glory" is all about finding your dreams and then chasing after it until you get the satisfaction that you are looking for outside of the box. It isn't something we make a choice for or against, it's just us living our lives and learning to be comfortable with change. When you understand that you have more opportunities in life if you take more risk, you begin to live your life in full color. Not the black and white stale ordinary life that many people want us to live and follow.
As for the majority of others, change or risk is not that easy to do. That is when worry, doubt, and fear play a key factor in your mind. You have to believe in yourself and your dreams no matter what. Hard work and determination can take you very far and a lot of times you won't have the same people around in your corner cheering you to the finish line, but whispering there doubts behind your back. That's when we say, turn it off, tune them out, and FOCUS. Stop explaining. There is always a bigger picture for each of us, that we can only see. Don't force others to see it your way, just show and prove. It is much easier to apologize later than to get permission. Go ahead and just do it.

Today, however, was a little slow at first, till I saw this poster from Joey Roth that gave me a "kick in the ass," and it got me moving all day. It's titled, Charlatan, Martyr, Hustler. Now the question is, Where do I fall in?
Apparently, Hustlers back up their talk with real work.

So here are some friendly answers for the fine folks at home to the best of my ability. I've been working diligently on creating new 2012 Spring, Summer & Fall clothes and overhauling the website for 2012. Since I design the shirts myself, we are little behind schedule, but I can tell you that we have been hard at work crafting some of the most pure unadulterated design funk to have ever touched the Grits namesake. In all seriousness, whatever I’ve done for Grits before, is far eclipsed by what we’re throwing around right now. Collections usually get thrown together at the last second because well…because all of you start complaining, I feel bad, throw something together and get it out for the Gang. However, with my new found ability to take time to release clothing, that means the quality and overall presentation of things are just getting ridiculous. I know that no one wants to wait, and that I’ve said this hundreds of times on these digital pages, but trust me. This is worth waiting for.
