Jonny Olsen

I met this kid named Jonny Olsen when i was in high school. He skated for this cool skate shop in the valley called Oneeighteen (Paul Rodriguez rode for them too, when he was like 12). We would hang out and skate and go see bands play, then I moved out of my parents house with some friends to Hollywood, and he would come and stay with us and just hang out. I started a job at a vegan thai restaurant called Vegan Express (which was the FIRST of all the vegan thai places in Los Angeles, all the other places stole the same basic recipes, I used to have bands play there and well, that is a whole other story) and soon after I got Jonny a job there too.

Jonny fell in love with Thai culture through the restaurant, I mean everything about it, the food, the clothes, the language, the girls and the music, especially the music. He went one year to visit and came back with a wooden flute type instrument called a Khaen and played it literally every minute of every day when he wasn't working or sleeping. Then he moved to Thailand to study the instrument and was gone for about two years. He came back and was pretty much a pro, he recorded a record out there, started a project called Master BAJ (Bad Ass Jonny) and soon he went back to live in Thailand and then Laos. In the last two years or so Jonny has become a huge success in Thailand and Laos and performs for thousands of people over there, he is a Pop Star.

 Below are some of his videos that are very unique and crazy and mind blowing and just, i don't really know how to describe them, you just have to see them, this is beyond next level heaviness, beyond beyond even!

YES he did play at Tiny Creatures when we had our art show. i do not even know what to call it, jonny is on his own planet definitely, i do not get everything he does, but i know it is super intense. he is one of those people that picks something and becomes the best at it, when we skated he was light years ahead. he was hesh style kinda before jamie thomas made it the thing, just a wacked kid skating SO hard.
