October 8- Tim and I are big fans of The Berrics, so when the "Bang yoself!" contest came up, we decided to make a video for it.  Here is our offering.- CJ

P.S.  If you miss the daily trout updates, start reading ChristianLambs instead.

August 26- Check out some behind the scenes footage from Issue 9.- CJ

June 14- Is raw footage interesting enough to post on the internet?
Photo: Started raining, and same broke his toe-shit

June 6- I've been going skating without my camera a lot lately, which probly isn't what you guys wanna hear.  It has been pretty fun and refreshing, and not having to carrying camera, lights, etc opens up new transportation options.- CJ
Photo: Dibs!

May 22- We've been shredding. Scope some outtakes!- CJ
Photo: Flick Smith Steeze.

May 20- Tim Lamb is broken.  Can't stop him from shredding whilst slung.- CJ

May 12- I'm back.  We missed the Trout's 3rd birthday in the hiatus.  So happy B-day trout (I got you a new banner, hope you like it).  I graduated from college too.- CJ
Photo: Stupid stick got in the way

March 24- I hate text messaging.  Touché, Tim.- CJ
Photo: Woodland reunion sesh.  Nick Flanders and Paolo were there!

March 6- If you thought all of the drawings on the SwimTeam discs were cool, go check out Tim's blog.  It's full of assorted art items made by Tim, and he probably updates more frequently than me.- CJ
Photo: How hot are they?

March 1- Well, we didn't really film much today, but we got outtakes!- CJ
Photo: O.G. NN crew, minus Tim and Toes.

February 21- Whoa...Peep hole pix rule.- CJ
Photo: "Lets paint a picture of our van, on the side of our van"

February 19- Uh oh...- CJ
Photo: Shit's weak, wizeak

February 17- No news, but I have photos, so I have to write something here...- CJ

February 16- I wasn't even aware that Endless Grind was in the process of making a video, but it looks as though they have a pretty sick one on the way.- CJ

February 14- Happy Valentines day....ew.- CJ
Photo: See Tim, see Tim tweak.

February 11- Issue 8!  We rip!!- CJ

February 8- Right when the skate plaza was built, someone asked me if I was going to film some sweet park montages there.  My response was something like "not right now, it's a little hectic, but maybe one day."  Well that day was today.- CJ

February 2- I went up to Richmond yesterday and skated with Tim Lamb and some friends.  We talked shit, skated, Tim kicked his board at my camera, and then crashed trying to invent some sweet new flip trick down stairs.  See what I mean?- CJ
Photo: Post-Carnage

January 28- I was separated from my digital camera for a while recently, and I was pretty bummed.  As usual, I bought film and took pictures of dogs to ease the pain.  Thankfully it has been recovered, and life can resume as usual.- CJ
Photo: ...and to make it an all Nibs post...

January 21- I'm sick... it's lame.  I've resorted to reading books, playing video games, and updating The Trout.- CJ
Photo:  Post it

January 20- I find that a lot of people on the internet use the term "we" when describing their website... Like "we have been working on lots of things."  It always makes me think there are teams of developers in some office building working 24/7.  Well, The Trout is just "me," which explains the lack of updates.- Me
Photo: This is old, think I shot it out of the window of Mike M's car.

January 2- Ahhh unemployment... it is a bit odd at first, but I think I could get used to it.  I'm not sure if you can really go on vacation if you don't have a job, but I've been sitting around in NC; going surfing, playing pool, and shooting timelapses.  Check out Temp's new montage; also, get stoked on yet another return of Post22.- CJ

December 25- Merry Christmas.- CJ
Photo: Who wants to call their bluff?

December16- As I finished packing up the remaining assets of the company I work for the other day, I realized I should probably start looking for a job.  I am graduating from ODU with a Communication Degree in the spring and I have been doing video encoding for web delivery for the past 2 years, but I am pretty open to new job fields.  If anyone has any leads, email me.  Thanks.- CJ

December 11- It seems like a lot of skate videos I've seen lately have lacked that certain "awesomeness" we all look forward to seeing in a video.  Thankfully, Fully Flared has finally arrived and put this trend to rest.  Be sure to bring your extra long attention span though, cus the video is an hour and a half long.- CJ
Photo: Odd couple

December 6- ThisIsVB has been around for a while, but they are just now getting to their first proper montage.  Check it out.- CJ
Photo: Studio

November 22- Happy Thanksgiving.  Check out the premier of the Osiris video tomorrow night at Hell's Kitchen in Norfolk.- CJ
Photo: Creepy

November 19- Dear God, please save my Ipod.  Thanks.- CJ

November 9- ThisIsVB just updated their site with a new montage of footage that didn't make the cut for their video.  There is still some high quality stuff in there, so go scope it.- CJ
Photo: Cornered cat...he doesn't look worried.

November 6- Oink.cd, the premier user driven music torrent site, has been shut down.  If you're interested in the digital media rights debate, read this article about it.  It is a bit lengthy, but worth it.  If you like to download music, and think there should be a better way for artists to distribute it, and fans to legally acquire it, then at least read the last few paragraphs towards the end before the comments.- CJ
Photo: Weekend home (once again, rockin trout graphics on pit bike)

October 11- Some friends of mine from Idaho are working on a video for Prestige Skate Shop, check it out here and get stoked.- CJ

October 10- Radiohead knows how to do things right.  They've stuck it to the man big time, in a classy way.  Go to their site and download their new album, it costs however much you wanna pay.- CJ

October 7- This is what your sessions look like when you're old and washed up.- CJ
Photo: How can you caption this?

September 25- More news from ThisIsVB.  They are premiering their new video this Friday.  I've had a little sneak peak and it looks sick, so go check it out.  Get teased here.- CJ
Photo: Mini bike in my car, check the custom trout graphics

September 17- I'm kinda late on this one, but check out the Josh Merkert video part over on ThisIsVB.com.  It's pretty sick.- CJ
Photo:  I climbed to the top of this silo, which was pretty gnarly because I'm not stoked on heights

August 29- I've only seen Viewpoint once from the original master off Temp's camera, so I'm pretty excited that he is hosting it up part by part on his blog.  If you don't know, Viewpoint is a video Temp made in 2001, which is like a millennium ago in skateboard years, and its sick.  So head on over and enjoy.- CJ
Photo: How embarrassing, they all showed up in the same outfit.

August 8- After a discussion with Temp about the gender of the androgynous lead singer of The Organ, I started researching the band.  This is when I noticed that the lead singer (female) looks exactly like our favorite photog Adam Slagle.  Awesome. - CJ

July 31- The Simpsons movie didn't disappoint, and I thought this was quite clever, especially in my case.- CJ
Photo: I don't take many portraits

July 30- I know I've linked here before, but just incase you forgot, head on over to Temp's blog and check out his new park montage.- CJ
Photo: It's easy to wake up early enough to see the sunrise when you sleep in your car.

July 22- John Waterfield has changed, he got a real job, moved to DC, started seeing live shows, and now he is texting me about them.  I'm sure he will email me tomorrow about how 'weak' it was that I posted this.- CJ
Photo: This photo looked better as a thumbnail

July 20- You can see a lot of really crazy, random, ridiculous things on the internet, which is part of why I love it so much.  This clip is an embodiment of its awesomeness.- CJ

July 4- I wonder if the people in the DMV represent and even sample of the population.  If so, I'm scared.- CJ
Photo: I thought my birthday card was pretty funny.

June 29- I was watching the Momentum Wheel video tonight, (which I would recommend you watch as well) when I saw this shot and thought 'man someone must really hate C. Williams.'  After my extensive google search on C. Williams and why someone would hate him yielded nothing, I went back to watching the video again.  This is when I realized the message said "I Hate Civilians," and I felt a little stupid for not knowing how to read.  These updates are getting ridiculous, I apologize.- CJ

June 27- I'm thinking of starting a "Don't Go Skateboarding Day," it would be on the same day as "Go Skateboarding Day."  My main goal would be to try to dissuade the same number of people from going skating that "Go Skateboarding DAY"  persuades to go skating, so it would just be like any other day.  In turn, we would all learn that mainstream publicity will do nothing good for skateboarding.  So everyone lay low and tread lightly.- CJ
Photo: I am updating from my laptop and don't have many photos on here, but I did find this.

June 26- Check out the new Element Video, it is surprisingly good.  Nyjah Huston is nuts.- CJ
Photo: These guys always elude my camera, thankfully my pal Erin had her camera and was able to capture the moment.  Norfolk PD at its finest. 

June 18- Happy birthday Mike B! (I think I'm a day late)- CJ
Photo: Cars Go Fast

June 13- The Fleezers deliver the goods, as usual.- CJ
Photo: Mike is totally about to pull an ollie-sit-down air over this gap.

June 11- "So, are you just going to jump down it, or like, actually try and do a skateboarding trick down it?" - John Waterfield
Photo: I bet whoever is trying to finish this puzzle is bummed.

June 10- Some scum of the earth, lowlife, thieves stole my motorcycle.  I'll be glad to leave Norfolk.- CJ
Photo: Double  Trouble

June 3- I was browsing Post Secret this evening when I came across this entry.  Looks like the spot will be blown up now.- CJ
Photo: Steps

May 28- I am a bit of a Family Guy fanatic.  This clip from last week lead me to look up this guy, and now I can't get the song out of my head.  The 80's were awsome- CJ
Photo: Moon

May 23- My friend shot a few music videos for local rap artist Big Kev.  Aside from a lot of really funny stories to tell, he also got some these sweet shirts out of the deal.  Who dem talk bout?- CJ

May 19- If you're bored, check out this Issue 7 behind the scenes clip.  If you have better things to do, I'd recommend doing those things rather than watching this clip.- CJ

May 18- John was lurking hard at the session tonight.  He didn't even bring shoes.  I let him use my digital camera while I was filming.  Most of his photos came out like this, but he did manage to get this one.- CJ

Photo: Small Dog

October 26- Whatsup gang, How you guys likin SwimTeam? I am hoping to make it around to some shops this weekend to drop off some more copies, so look for them at Mikes in Hampton, Sole Brother in Norfolk, and 17th in NN.  I'll update the news after I have dropped them off at each place.  There is one copy at Mikes now, so you can probly go in there and watch it if you are so inclined, but I doubt they would give it to you.  Stay tuned.- CJ

October 18- SwimTeams are going quick, I am almost through my first 50.  It has been cool to see people from out of state wanting the video, looks like I may be shipping more videos that I anticipated, but there's nothing wrong with that.  If you live in/around Norfolk and haven't been able to get a hold of me to get a video, go to Sole Brother on 20th street.  I am going to be dropping of some copies there today around 11:30.  Be sure to ASK FOR ONE, cus you won't be able to get one if you don't ask.  They're still free of course, just trying to keep them a little concealed so trout fans can have first dibs.  I am going to try and set up a similar deal at more skate shops soon (Mikes in Hampton and 17th Street in NN).  I gave Waterfield some videos to hand out around VB, so if you live in VB, look for him.  That's all for now, stay tuned.- CJ

October 16- SwimTeam is upon us!!!!!  Here's the deal, there are 200 original SwimTeam DVDs, all numbered with original artwork by Tim Lamb and friends (here is number 11).  But please feel free to copy the DVD!  How can you get one?  For right now, I am just going to be giving them out to whoever I see and whoever comes to get one...some may end up in shops eventually.  If you want to come pick one up you can meet me at my apartment or my office (both are in Norfolk), you can IM me at "CJCongrove" to arrange the time and place.  Will I mail them?  I would rather not, but If you live far away or don't have means to go get one, write me an email and I will give you my address so you can send me a small donation to cover shipping.  Whew, lotta information in there.- CJ

October 13- I know I said that  SwimTeams would be ready this weekend, but, I am a liar.  Motorcycle trip time, be back Sunday.- CJ

October 11- Here is the latest SwimTeam news.  I've decided...to hell with a premier, how bout I just give you a video and you go have your own little private premier, hell, invite some friends if you want.  I still need to print and cut covers, so after that is taken care of, they will be ready to go.  Look for them this weekend, I'll post up more details on where/when you can get one as I decide. -CJ

October 5- Due to a minor hangup in production...no SwimTeam premier this weekend.  Perhaps next weekend, if I can even find a place to do it.  Who knows, I may just scratch the whole idea and start giving out videos.  Stay tuned.- CJ

October 3- Templeton copied this email from the VB government to me this morning about the upcoming VA Beach skate plaza.  Very exciting news, check out the plans here.- CJ

October 1- I created the first ever SwimTeam DVD today.  Get ready for the premier this coming weekend.  I will have more details soon, stay posted.- CJ

September 29- I got the last of the necessary SwimTeam supplies in today.  Duplication should begin next week and be done shortly after!  Now we need a spot for a premier, if you have any ideas or a possibility for a good spot, email me.  All we need is a big white wall and room for people to stand around, and it has to be free of course.
SwimTeam: slightly better than a kick in the teeth- CJ

September 23- SwimTeam is done! Well...kindof.  Finished the actual video today, now its time for DVD menu building, bonus, printing, burning, and other stuff I'm forgetting.  Free SwimTeams coming!  My financial loss = your gain! - CJ

September 18- Wow.  That was a long time without updating...sorry.  Been busy working on SwimTeam.  It's coming! - CJ

September 5- Here are some questions I've been asked a lot lately:
How's the video comin?
-Good, I'm trying to finish editing it
When is it going to be out?
-I am hoping for October 1st...but I have a lot of DVD's to burn...we'll see
Can I have one?
- Of course you can have one, everyone can have one, they are fuckin free....get stoked
Will there be a promo?
-Probly not, just watch theB -Roll, it even says SwimTeam in there if you look real close.

SwimTeam: for fuckin free- CJ

August 22- Good news out of Norfolk?  Me and Mike B got off pretty easy on our tickets, the charges will be dismissed if we don't screw up in the next 6 months (cross your fingers).  Also, I saw this link over on 757.  Rock on Sebastian, whoever you are.- CJ

Thing to look at: Mouse

July 10- I can't wait until I finish this video so I can quit skateboarding.  Mike B and I made it 2 for 2 tonight, and picked up another skateboarding ticket.  What are the chances of that?  Who can get that unlucky.  I don't even know what else to say... ridiculous.- CJ
Photo: My Two Tickets and the receipt from my confiscated footage

July 10- Welp, I picked up my 4th skateboarding related ticket last night.  I'm gonna have quite a little record going here.  Me and Mike B were partners in crime.  The footage from the night was also confiscated, so pretty much nothing good came from the experience, except for the mini tripod Mike gave me.- CJ

June 21- Apparently today was "Go Skateboarding Day."  I'm not really sure what that means, but I did not go skateboarding today, so I guess I messed it up.  I did however watch some rad skating via the Fleez.  Go check out Pat's part that was originally meant for the Thrills video.- CJ

June 18- Trout supporter/ contributor Templeton Elliott is getting married today.  Congrats Temp and Kellie.- CJ

July 18- I wish I could be more like Mike Matthews.  Quit my job, skate all day, have no responsibilities or obligations and still be able to afford an apartment.  I could just go out and buy Blondie shirts all day.- CJ

July 16- Updates are slow, and I apologize, but Issue 5 will be up sometime in the beginning of the week so get ready.- CJ

July 4- Paolo showed me this yesterday, I got a good laugh out of it. Check it.- CJ

July 3- Today is my birthday!  I'm officially old and washed up, I'm 20.- CJ

July 1- I am ashamed to say it, but I went and saw Lords of Dogtown last night.  Anyway, it was about what I expected, not great.  Don Nguyen had one line in the movie, but it might have been the funniest part.- CJ

June 30- Mike B called me at 2a.m.  last night to tell me he got a mullet, needless to say he was hyped.  Look for mullet footage in Issue 5.- CJ

June 27- You know you have a strong board when Kyle can't focus it.- CJ

June 26- Just got back from a good ol Richmond trip.  It was pretty fun and we got some footy too.  Only bad thing is Paolo broke/dislocated his toe.  So don't skate Rowley 1's.- CJ

June 25- Two updates in one day? Trust me its well worth it.  Tflow has way too much time on his hands, and mental problems, here is proof.- CJ

June 25- I suppose we are filming for Issue 5 now, we are headin up to Richmond tonight so hopefully we can get some footy.- CJ

June 24- If you didn't already know, Tilly and the Wall is cool.  Their song "You and I Misbehaving" was used in Issue 4, so go check them out and buy their cd.- CJ

June 23- Well I'm back in good ol Hampton.  So you know what that means, back to daily updates and shreddin.- CJ

June 21- Man this is the longest I've ever gone without updating...crazy.  But yeah I'm still on vacation down in the outer banks.  Mike Matthews hates surfing, so here is a picture of me to piss him off.- CJ

June 18- I am leaving to go to the beach in a couple hours.  So this means there will be a severe lack of updates this week.  I apologize in advance.- CJ

June 16- Man we have really been having some shitty seshions the past few nights, oh well.  At least im goin on vacation next week.- CJ

June 15- Waterfield couldn't live up to his E-mail, but I must say he gave it his all.- CJ

June 14- Read this E-mail I got from Waterfield.  It made me laugh.  Who uses E-mail anyway, live in the now, get AIM John, and a cell phone while you are at it.- CJ

June 13- Issue 4 is done, and even Brandon Hobbs has footy.  So go watch it!- CJ

June 11- 13.5 hour work days suck....back to the grind- CJ

June 10- "Did Rocky give up after Apollo knocked him down for the third time...NO, now get up and do it"- words of encouragement from John Waterfield- CJ

June 9- "Good News" is still in demand from what I hear.  I'm about to drop off 10 fresh copies at Mike's Surf Shop in Hampton.  So if you haven't seen the video, go pick one up or just email me.- CJ

June 8- It looks like my super 8 camera finally crapped out for good.  Time to hit the Phoebus antique store circuit and look for a new one.- CJ

June 7- You know your session sucked when Mike B gets the hammer of the night.  Just kidding Mike.- CJ

June 5- The Suffolk rail isn't gone yet, but it looks like they are getting pretty close to tearin it down.  Bummer- CJ

June 4- I just got back from an intense all day surf sesh down on the outer banks, that explains the lack of updates.  But hopefully I'll have something important to say after we shred tomorrow.- CJ

June 2- Well issue 4 is underway, there should also be another profile comin up too, Aden and Shane will have to battle it out for that one.- CJ

June 1- I Had a long day of work yesterday followed by a long night of shreddin, so that explains the lack of update.  Anyhow, Waterfield has departed on an Atlanta trip with Jed and Brian from Banzai, hopefully he will bring back some footage.- CJ

May 30- Mike M wants to go skating today, what an event!  I thought he quit after finishing his profile.- CJ

May 29- Had a little fun with frame mode on my camera yesterday, check it.  For now its back to watchin the Law and Order marathon.- CJ

May 28- It may be hard to believe, but the Trout just celebrated its one month anniversary, although it seems like longer.  I hope we can keep the rapid content pace up, but I wont promise anything.- CJ

May 27- Well after an all day rail sesh yesterday, Issue 3 is ready! Enjoy- CJ

May 26- This news is pretty late, but for those of you who don't know, Mitch Hedberg died.  He was one of the funniest comics I've ever heard.  If you're not familiar you can go to his website and listen to some of his jokes, you will laugh I promise.- CJ

May 25-Rain rocks...sike.  Bad weather has been preventing filming lately, but well get back on it soon I suspect.- CJ

May 24- Incase you haven't noticed, the Walker Texas Ranger lever is making a comeback on Conan.  No one is happier than me.- CJ

May 22- Well I missed my first daily update, but I guess that's what employment will do to you.  Issue 3 is well underway so stay tuned.- CJ

May 20- Banzai is working on a new site layout, but you can check out the old one which is equally awsome.  They've been holding it down out of Richmond for a good while now.  They also sponsor Trout regular John Waterfield.  So check them out.- CJ

May 19- It has become clear that I have way too much time on my hands now that school is out.  So check out this little video of a shitty day in the life of Mike B.- CJ

May 18- Sorry for the late update, but Mike B made me pick him up from school and drive him to Suffolk so he could bitch for 2 hours.  If you see him, tell him he sucks.- CJ

May 17- If you haven't seen the new DC commercial then you are missin out.  It's pretty amazing and quite funny.  You can see some of the madness on the DC Site under "Hoops at the TF."- CJ

May 16- A shitty day in Mike Brown's life....coming soon- CJ

May 11- Nick Flanders is getting ankle surgery today.  He hasn't had any footage on the site because of a bad streak of injuries, but those of you who have seen Good News know he can rip.  So hopefully he will get back to 100% soon.  Good luck Nick.- CJ

May 11- Mike M's profile is up! Issue 2 is nearing completion as well, so be ready.- CJ

May 8- Well it's about 3am and I am just getting back from an adventurous Raleigh trip.  Our navigational skills could use some work, but we made it home alive with a few tricks on film.- CJ

May 6- Mike M wants to use this in his video part... But he also listens to Fall Out Boy, so we can only take his opinions but so seriously.- CJ

May 5- Check out more music from The Go Team.  Their song "Huddle Formation" was used in Issue 1.- CJ

May 4- Schools out for the summer! Waterfield, Mike M and I celebrated with a long hard day of shreddin.  Water must have been a little mad after Mike and I kept bothering him while he was taking his finance exam.  He later got his revenge.- CJ

May 3- Must have not been paying attention when i updated earlier, but i fixed the link on the Bright Eyes song so go check it out.- CJ

May 3- I randomly caught a Bright Eyes performance on Leno last night. To my surprise is was of "When the President Talks to God." It wasn't as good as when I saw it in person but still good, download it for free on I-Tunes here. Oh and all you George W. supporters might want to stay away from this one.- CJ

May 2- Shelltoes may not believe it, but my new hair-do is super sick.  Thanks Jaci.- CJ

April 30- Mike Matthews is hard at work filming for his profile.  He even managed a late night WB session last night while he was completely wasted!(only joking Mike)- CJ

April 29- Well it looks like someone who knows html got a hold of the site.  Things should work right for everyone now (no more overlapping text or anything like that).  So thanks to "Blockheads" over at the Perception Boards. -CJ

April 28- Well Mike Matthews was so hyped after seeing Mike B's profile...He wants his own now, so look out for that one in a week or so....more content on the way. -CJ
