the pleasures of going mainstream…
The creator of an aerial skateboarding move known as ollie is suing several companies, including Disney and Sega, over the use of the word.
Alan “Ollie” Gelfand, 42, says the companies infringed on trademarking rights. He is seeking more than $20 million in damages.”I’m just a skateboarder,” Gelfand said. “I’m not a huge, mega corporation . . . yet.”
Gelfand’s lawsuit was sent back to Broward Circuit Court from federal court last month. Sega Corp. sells a skateboarding arcade game called Ollie King for $9,779.99. Then there’s Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure video game.

“As I stabbed the kitchen knife into my arm, I realized we had the right artist on our hands. Someone obsessed with the spiritual, the lurid ; an illustrator able to mesmerize and horrify at the same time. The first Rat Tail blood contract has been signed. 4×4 and Jeremy Beightol present the Sandman Line.” – Jon Elliott
