I was checking out some old stand-up on Netflix. I found my way to Comedy Central Presents: Adam Ferrara. You can probably tell by his outfit, but it was 1998. The background features a slew of milk crates. I’m not sure, but I think they were trying to recreate some New York rooftop scene.

Awesome reader Monte sent me these great screen grabs from season 3 of Lost. Thanks!
Milkcrates and skateboards go back to the beginning for me. Playing with crates, stacking them to see how high I can ollie, and sometimes just knocking them down was the beginning of my love of the form. The misfits at American Misfits have done a series of these videos. This one just popped up on YouTube –>Fuel TV – Milk Crate Skatin. The timing is almost perfect, after watching the video and getting motivated, buy one of these, I Heart Milkcrate skateboards.
New Dell commercial…
This aussie is pretty serious about milkcrate theft, so he redsigned the milkcrate for the ABC/AU show, the New Inventors. How can you really improve something so perfect. From the abc web page: “Most people have found that milk crates are ideal for storage at home and this discovery has led to milk crates going missing. Milk crates have be known to be used for safe storage of vinyl records, used as seating stools, as a stand at concerts and parades to catch a better view and sometimes when partnered with other milk crates even used as a strong bed base.” Seems like even ABC is rooting against him. The video is some funny/not funny stuff. – John Freeborn 5-30-06
