Oh magic Ouija, am I going to wipe out and split my tibia in half today? [Excruciatingly slow movement of plastic pointer flanked by two sets of 10 fingers traveling across skateboard deck and settling in the top right corner when the word Yes is written]. Dude! You moved it!

Dude! I didn't move it!

Dude! You fucking moved it!

Dude! I didn't move it! The ancient Chinese Ouija master just knows you're a shitty skateboarder!

Dude! I'm an awesome skateboarder.

Dude! You're a hazard to yourself and those around you!

Dude! What's your problem?

Dude! You're everyone's problem. That's because every time your feet hit the deck, you're unsafe. I don't like you because you're dangerous.

That's right! Ice...man. I am dangerous.

New York-based artist and curator Scott Ogden created the Ouija Skateboard Deck as an homage to his childhood memories of skating hard and then sitting around watching girls he had a crush on giggle over the mysterious meanderings of the Ouija spirit. Most of us can recall similar experiences. Where Ogden's veers is the day he had been introduced to everyone as "Scott", and then the girls asked the Ouija board his name. Its reply: "J-A-M-E-S." When everyone laughed over the sham, Ogden's stomach did a double tuck back flip. His name is James. James Scott Ogden. Since then, his love/fear of the Ouija board has burned strong.

So for Ogden, the skateboard deck-Ouija combination was a natural one. Luckily, the board's 8" x 33" surface also lends itself well to hand-staining and extensive alpha-numeric screen printing. Decks are part of an edition of 250.

By the way, this morning I made a commitment to incorporate Top Gun into my writeups more often.
