What’s the Deal?

On the road again…

by Lang Whitaker

So I’m not allowed to say exactly where I am, I don’t think, but right now I’m sitting in my hotel room and I can see the Pacific Ocean.

Why am I here? Because SLAM pulled off a pretty spectacular photo shoot today for the upcoming Kicks issue, and that has to stay secret for at least a few more days.

I can tell you this: During the shoot I got a ton of great stuff for the website, and by Friday I’ll start throwing it on the site. First, though, I gotta write the magazine story all night tonight and all day tomorrow and then catch that red eye back.

So things tomorrow might be slow on here, although Sam will keep banging away. And who knows, maybe I’ll find a wireless connection somewhere around here and write a little something.

    “i’m with a really famous guy, but i can’t tell you who he is.”

    “i’m at a special location, but i’m not allowed to say where.”

    bunch of teases.

    MI3 = bad movie
    MI6 = British Intelligence
    MI7 = Slam Magazine.

    I know Wal-Mart must be giving up the scrilla, but you can’t let them advertise on Slamonline, man! You guys will lose all your credibility. Call up the people at Dollar General!
