I don't think I cared for Pretty Sweet as a whole when it was released. I should probably give it a fresh viewing, like I did with Fully Flared.

I'm pretty much on the same page as Patrick in my assessment of the video.

If you edit out a couple of parts from Fully Flared, you've got a pretty decent video. Even Mike Mo skating to Arcade Fire somehow works better now than it did at the time.

I think this was Vincent's going pro or maybe even debut part so they went a little too big. Three songs for an opener is excessive. Sometimes you have to try new stuff and discover it doesn't work.

I didn't even remember Jack Black was in Pretty Sweet. Not a fan of that guy. I still have no clue who Will Arnett is, but I guess he's famous or something.

Fully Flared was Alex Olson's first part ever so he was figuring everything out. I waiver back and forth on the King Diamond song. Sometimes it is OK and other times they could have used literally anything else and it would have been an improvement. Supposedly Alex was fine with the tune.

Marc's best part to me is the first third of Fully Flared where he skates to "Goodbye Horses". I only ever watch that song worth of Marc and hit stop. It has the perfect casual and fun mood. They should've ended the video right there.

Karl Watson skated to "Public Image" in LRG's Give Me My Money, Chico.

I liked Nyjah's opening street line. There were some amazing tricks in the part, but it was too much everybody's good skateboarding.

Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for doing this show. I have no idea how to record and email a voice note.
