I too liked the graininess of the Hockey video. The music fit well with the project. It was a bummer there wasn't much of Ben and Kevin, although I didn't really notice. I assume Ben might be working on something, maybe for Vans. I liked that there was snow in the background for some of Nik Stain's tricks and it was cool to see John Fitzgerald back on board after some injuries.

The music for Ben's Triple Backflip part from whenever ago was a sound collage by Doug Hock, who works for Death By Audio effects pedals.

Fully Flared is neither the utter disaster the internet paints it to be or the unheralded masterpiece skateboard media made it out to be in 2007. It's somewhere in the middle with some good parts and some skippable parts.

I agree that it's better to start something new instead of dragging something up from the graveyard.

After Questionable, I never really had much interest in Plan B. Actually, after the Tim Brauch and Jason Adams interview from Thrasher in September 1993, I was over all things World.

Killdeer are neat. There are always a few of them around here on the fields at the college. They can be super loud.

The editing of the Hockey video was on point, as always, but sometimes i wish it was a tiny bit less dramatic or wannabe edgy. I mean, sometimes it's almost like we're back to that epicness that the Skate More intro was trying to make fun of... Well, it'as all about cycles.

I'm also divided about Andrew Allen. He has that "je ne sais quoi", for sure. He reminds me of Michael Madsen in Kill Bill. Someone at the end of this journey, but who still look goddam cool even though there's not much to see anymore.

Stoked on the Victor Campillo mention. He looks goddam good in those SF streets, but i guess he shines even more in the grimy streets of Marseille.
