For as much as I rip on the big shoe companies, it's awesome how much Adidas is doing to promote Nora's new shoe. Ditto for Alexis.

The local shop here has been doing stuff for women and non-binary people for a few years now. That's definitely a good thing.

Jessie Van Roechoudt needs to get some more historical shine.

I agree with Patrick on Mason's music selection for video parts. It made me a fan and elevated him from being a dude who is good at skateboarding to someone interesting. It also kind of shoots down the argument when us old dudes complain about the music in parts and the reply is that it's not intended for us. You can pick tunes that work with careful thought and a good sense of music history.

I actually like the generic cold wave and punk stuff. It's comfy enough to not irritate, but edgy enough to give the parts a bit of grit. It fits with the general history of skateboard music soundtracks.
