And it's really about...
On 2/25/2003 Geezer-X wrote in from (149.2.nnn.nnn)

Hey ARAB !!!! (looks around) nice place you got here...Seriously, dude, I'm gonna try to make 2 Cali races this year, and I really look forward to meeting you and the rest of the gang. You may have decided I'm a "KOOK" but remember, we both started on clay wheels, have both loved skating since whatever fateful day in the 60s we discovered it, both love slalom, parks, banks...People start making comparisons like "he's better than so-and-so" or whatever, but the group of "40 year old skaters who are still way into it" is a small group, and as such, should try to stick together. Am I going to place well at west coast races? probably not. Curt Kimbel has close to 2 seconds on me usually, so I'll probably be mid pack at best, but I will be doing the best I can, and will be having a good time. and I'll be doing it on whatever equipment works best for me according to a timer. not what someone has given me. Not what someone has told me I need. Not what I picked because I always used it before. There are guys at the middle of the pack who are looking for 10ths and 100ths as hard as guys in the front. Anyway. Just wanted to drop by and say hey.

On the topic of "ARAB"
On 2/25/2003 vasocreta (matt) wrote in from (198.4.nnn.nnn)

I think ARAB civilians have rights too. I mean, sure Saddam Insane should get ousted (in any way possible), but not at the expense of civilian ARAB lives...

Oh, sh*t, sorry, I thought that was what we were talking about!!

On topic now: ARAB. Yeah his posts often make him out to be a real d*ck-wad, but I like the guy. I often enjoy reading what he has to say, and look forward to meeting him someday. I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them, Sam I Am!

Speaking of Slalom
On 2/25/2003 george g. wrote in from (159.87.nnn.nnn)

Hi Arab, just the other day i was talking to a slalom newby that i had sent to this site and others. the newby was very confused. i told em to forget about it, just ride and race when you can. he asked me who half of the people posting were, giving advice as he had never heard of them and never seen them at a race. they were going to get bogged down in the equipment race. 8 boards, 24 wheels and tooo many trucks (i never brought up bearings) please enlighten the confused newby.

pronunciation
On 2/25/2003 K-LEE wrote in from (172.193.nnn.nnn)

Here's my question:

Sharon says it like "A-rab", kinda redneck style.

I tend to pronnounce it more like "airrib", more like an Arabic person would say.

Which do you prefer?

Right on - good story - I think there's coupla guys here in Pedro that are still calling me "Dick Head" back from when I was 10 and I don't even know why. I drive the coast from Pedro to Newport every day so I'm all over town. I'd love to skate with you guys. Email me & let me know when, I'll be there. Thanks brothers.

A-RAB
On 2/24/2003 Arab wrote in from (24.24.nnn.nnn)

Stevie-Dont mind Hugh, He has it in for alot of people, and I just happen to be one of them. I think its kind of a skater infuriority complex thing with him?

HUGH PLEASE DONT MUKKITY UP THIS FORUM AS YOU HAVE OTHERS!

As for the Arab moniker, I got that when I was about 10 yrs old, I use to wear my t-shirt, collar around my head sleeves tied behind, when skatin,football,baseball whatever, this guy started calling me the Arab, Same guy named my brother "Gringo", this guy had a nick name for everybody, to this day some 30 yrs later, we all still have them.

Arab

PS Stevie, if you live in so cal come on out and slalom with me and the boys.

Hey HughR, give the man a little space to spread out some love and start up fresh. We got a new start here. I for one am not going to have any fun if all the old vendettas that I'm not part of get dragged over.

Hey Arab! (Or as my contractor buddies would say, "A-Rab") This forum will definitely be fun.

Here's my Q: Where'd you get that nickname? I've seen your pic and it's not an image thing as far as I can tell. Is it something you want to talk about? Beginning slalomers want to know ;)

What's the matter? Can't keep up? Can't take a little of what you've been dishing out for years? Cat got your tongue? Panties in a knot?

No anger on my side... just looking for some answers... this is a Q&A forum isn't it? HR

HUGH's Problems
On 2/24/2003 Arab wrote in from (24.24.nnn.nnn)

Hugh-you obviously have some pent up anger, maybe you should be at some type of psychological forum seeking help, You know its post like these and people like you that ruin things for those of us that so enjoy this site.

Thanx for stopping in with your negativity, hatred, and slalom bashing.

Come back tommorow when your temper has settled down and maybe you can contribute something skateboard worthy related.

PPSSSSSSSSST-Lets hope that Hugh wont come back here, and maybe NCDSA could get back to the way it use to be, when friends would come shoot the s#@! with each other.

and another thing
On 2/24/2003 hugh r wrote in from (205.216.nnn.nnn)

What I think it is, is that a handful of lackeys really want to be you (little arab's) and they figure if they square off against Hugh "The Bad Man" R, that they'll get arab points... at the end of the Chucky Cheese experience they can trade them in for free bearings!

So now we have some more words to work with Little Arabs ( LA's ) and Arab Points ( AP )... isn't this fun? HR

And I'll post multiples in a row because I'll have forgotten to say something...

I don't have a problem with oust bearings... mine seem to be with the guys who post anonymously about them and shout down anyone else who questions their "shut up and follow me" mantra!

So there... HR

Having trouble already?
On 2/24/2003 hugh r wrote in from (205.216.nnn.nnn)

Gee wiz dude! I figured that you could stay on task for longer than this... guess it's the ol' ADHD kicking in?

I always figured the ousters were your buds? Guess I was wrong... sorry for the missassociation... might have something to do with the constant use of the word "hatred."

No problems between me and the cone runners... just thought that comment might get a funny comment from you... so lighten up! I was playing about the slalom guys... don't read so much into my words...

And you sit there and say you don't think of me at all? Why just a bit ago you said hi to me over on the bearing forum... I think you have one of those blader crushes on me! Zero drag? Now THAT'S funny!! You know that you loose sleep over what I am going to say next... and it'll be worse now that your an "offical" target here with your very own forum... I'm gonna have fun with this one and then you'll have to GONG me and I'll be the one complaining about being sensored!!! YEHAW!! HR

Hughs Bearing Forum
On 2/24/2003 Arab wrote in from (24.24.nnn.nnn)

Hughbert,
You'll have to ask the Ousters what they think of you, I dont think of you at all.

But why do you have all this hatred for slalomers and people that ride Oust bearings?

I'll bite
On 2/24/2003 hugh r wrote in from (205.216.nnn.nnn)

I have a few questions:

So does this mean we won't be reading posts from you on the other forums?

Why do the ousters care so much about what I write or say? If I am really "THE" laughing stock of the skateboarding scene, then why does it matter what I think, say, or do?

Isn't being the fastest guy in slalom kinda like being the toughest guy in the High School Band? Or at least the toughest guy on the golf team?

Are you the real Arab, or is this a "poof" type of joke?

Gong!!!!!!
On 2/24/2003 Arab wrote in from (24.24.nnn.nnn)

Welcome to the Gong Show with me your friendly host Arab, In the tradition of the Chuck Barris Gong show, this forum is very similer, and as it states in the NCDSA posting guidelines "Good posts follow good posts, bad post follow bad...." So choose your words carefully and you wont get "GONGED".

First Topic on the Table: "ARAB"

And might I be the first to welcome myself back!, Adam came up with this idea of "Arab's Forum" and I hope you the reader wont abuse it, just enjoy the ride, and contribute something worthy.
