Nyjah Huston shredded his reputation among neighbors.
Nyjah Huston is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 11 on eight misdemeanor counts related to creating a public nuisance.

Or will he be?

See, the 20-year-old professional skateboarder has been slapped with citations for loud parties at his San Juan Capistrano home before, but the hearings keep getting delayed because subsequent bashes bring more complaints from neighbors and more citations from sheriff's deputies.

While I have not yet had the pleasure of seeing A Wedge to Remember, I can safely report it is impressive how quickly Pomer turned his passion project around.

What kind of beer do you like? Heineken!?! Fuck that shit! PABST! Blue Ribbon!

After blue collar workers--and before the hipsters--Pabst Blue Ribbon was most appreciated by Frank Booth, the sick pup brought to career-resurrecting life in the movie Blue Velvet by the late, great Dennis Hopper.
