rob dyrdek

December 19, 2007

the movie is called “street dreams” — it’s a film centering around a skater, his fight against other peoples’ expectations of him, and his passion for skateboarding. i contributed a little music for it (just one musical bit). the movie turned out great. it hasn’t been picked up by a movie house yet, but i hope it does; those guys worked their asses of on it.

many of you may know rob from the MTV show, “rob and big.” i’ve had the pleasure of getting to know rob over the past few years. he and big are one of the funniest things i have seen on TV in forever.

incidentally, rob also gave me a sneek peek into the upcoming season of his MTV show. let’s just say he’s got big things planned for his “bobby light” character. it should also be mentioned that rob currently holds 21 world records for skateboarding. amazing. check these photos out, courtesy of mr. dyrdek himself:

    I love Rob and Big. I can’t wait untill the new season starts. I went out and bought my first deck because of that show. Its never too late to learn. Rob is from Kettering, Ohio which is just a few minutes away from me. The skate park is awsome! Keep on Rockin Mike!

    They are the cutest little family though, aren’t they? Freakin’ Meaty is possibly the best part. He’s a better skater then I’ll ever be. Hehe… My bulldogs look up to him, I think. They’re learning to skateboard, too… 🙂

  25. twix on December 19, 2007 at 1:46 pm

    I had a feeling you were friends with Rob because I could have swore he was was in your “Remember The Name” music video!😉 Plus, Rob’s part of the “DC” company?

    I love the Rob & Big show! They are definitely funny guys. I watch their show just for the laughs. Although my favorite character in the show is their bulldog!! Hehehe! Have you ever met Rob’s dog, Mike?? Don’t really like the pony though and I have no idea why Rob wanted the pony. LOL.

    That’s awesome he’s going to have a new movie. Hopefully a movie company can pick it up and it’s in a theater near us soon!!

  26. SandraD06 on December 19, 2007 at 11:42 am

    hahaha…. I love Rob & Big. its one of the most hilarious shows ever
    in MTV history!!! lol i can’t wait to see season 3. its going to be awesome!!!!

  43. nataku on December 19, 2007 at 7:05 am

    man, he looks similar to that actor michael rapaport.
    rob was at your art show, right?

  44. ffmuteki9 on December 19, 2007 at 6:58 am

    Mike, do you still remember these?

    http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=eJIGLqAzxPQ&feature=related

    http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=GfbxlPFr7O4&feature=related

    those videos were in Japan, Taiwanese journalist went to Japan and had a interview with you. I remember I saw the news back then, i was really excited.

    and i, of course, did go to FM and LP’s concert here in Taiwan, and these two concerts are also my only two concert in my life.

    and here’s you with a hand puppet http://p0.p.pixnet.net/albums/userpics/0/5/75705/114122313917.jpg

  45. OceanBiscuit on December 19, 2007 at 6:46 am

    i dont know this guy well,actually,but i think i quite like this guy……..and…good job indeed:)

  46. Shani on December 19, 2007 at 6:12 am

    I love Rob, he’s a good guy indeed, and Rob&Big is one of the best shows ever, they’re just being… themselves, which claims to be way enough for the show to be funny as hell. Their show’s one of the only ones by MTV which is good plus hilarious.. Anyway, I wish I could watch it, sometime at the future… cuz now I’m curious.

  47. Avi on December 19, 2007 at 6:11 am

    I love Rob Dyrdek xD I always laugh when I watch his show😀 tell him that his dog is so lovely😀😀

  57. xclutchingmycure on December 19, 2007 at 1:25 am

    man, that shiz is awesome. i wish we got something like that in new zealand..

    funny, i was talking to my mom earlier tonight about loveline and how i listen daily, and she’s like “with that guy dr drew yeah?” and she told me that she used to watch him on mtv around 10 years ago. HAHAHA. in new zealand. niiiice mom, niiiice.

    question for you mike… do you still have those “brit pop superstar glasses”? the blue ones that you wore in frat party :P? if you do, post us all a picture of the difference over the years!

  58. KATHYxx on December 19, 2007 at 1:23 am

    Rob has a nice pony btw😀
    I love you❤

  60. theOuiSkey on December 19, 2007 at 1:09 am

    haha…so hilarious…sorry…in here we dont have the show like this…..too sad… TT_TT…

    i like his dog…

  61. JNudda on December 19, 2007 at 12:34 am

    lol pixelation!

    R & D are awesome, that movie sounds dope. Hope it gets picked up.

    Mike you considering doing link exchanges with other blogs?

  62. michaela on December 19, 2007 at 12:21 am

    OMG I love those guys!!!
    i got an idea. Mike!!!! Try to find your blue bunny ears from Prague(if you remember getting them from me), put them on your head, take a photo of yourself and post it here xD that would be soooo cool😀 please!!!!!
    anyways, can´t wait to see the movie with Rob!

  63. crooklynn on December 19, 2007 at 12:17 am

    good morning mike. thats very funny. can’t wait to watch the show. thanks for putting this online.

  64. Doggie24690 on December 19, 2007 at 12:12 am

    YES!!! Rob for the win! I love those two silly bitches. Though, I had no idea he had 21 skateboarding awards, guess I haven’t brushed up on my history with him too much. I’m more into Rodney Mullen, skateboarding wise but man, they are definitely funny. Can’t wait for season three of his show. And hopefully the movie will pick up because you peaked my interests. I wanna watch the movie and hear your musical bit. Anyways, thanks for the update.
