Under no circumstances should looking at the Alien Workshop Web site (or any other Web site) interfere with the time you spend skateboarding. If said interference has already occurred, you may want to reconsider your entire program-you’re probably doing everything else wrong, too.

If, on the other hand, you’re stuck inside on a murky fall day, stranded in the computer lab, you’ve managed to tear cartilage, or something shitty like that, one of the first things you should do is plan a effectual visit to your old buddies over at They’ve been waiting for you.

During your visit, it’ll be your choice whether you want to check out the team’s vital statistics, examine available AWS product, download video clips, scroll through a tripped-out slide show, or pose a question to Zipper-the answers are guaranteed right or wrong and free of charge.

All the content is consummate Workshop, the site is a grade-A time burner, and, all in all, original enough to visit a second or third time, but it doesn’t make you feel good or bad or different-rather, just the same.

If good or bad or different is what you’re looking for, you may want to try staying up for a few days straight, spending a lot of time alone in your basement, or eating a few hamburgers. Either that or ride your skateboard-that always works, too.
