The No, This Is Skateboarding video was awesome.

My friend had a couple ideas for the NBA All Star skills contests. There'd be five players dribbling balls and you have to foul as many of them as possible. Also have a flopping contest where you try to draw charges. See if you can fool the ref or something.

I skated with a kid who was from the same town as Chad Knight in Ohio. He said Chad was awesome. This kid was also really good and dabbled with snowboard sponsorships later on.

I made a P-Rod post with a Fourstar ad that was captioned Future Primitive. It got no comments. C'mon, that's funny.

The collabs are really uninteresting by virtue of being all over the place. It's not like if Welcome does something, it's because they are stoked on a band. You get too broad a range of co-conspirators that makes you think they have no specific aesthetic.

Primitive videos are decent enough to watch, but they get lost in the churn. The graphic design and graphics are OK, or well done, I guess when they aren't collabs. I think I like the gold boards. Not that I would ride one, but they sort of look neat.

I've maybe seen a couple of their decks in the wild. Actually, I'm positive I've seen a few.
