Someone actually got an Inspectrum tattoo. Its pretty crazy to think that something that started in your head ended up on someones skin for the rest of there life. Or at least until they realize they’ve made a terrible mistake getting an Inspectrum tattoo and get it covered up. But non the less thank you for your support. It really is appreciated.
Here’s another one in accordance with last weeks post. I love everything about this photo. Tom Knox at the brick quarter pipes.
Reading the comments in a video part that came out this past week I couldn’t help but think about how video parts have changed. Here is the quote that got me thinking.
“this new skateboarding is so stupid… nothing has a value anymore and everything looks so empty. i’m really sorry if someone’s gonna get this all wrong (and i know they will), but the ones know have been out there skateboarding at least for more than 10 years will understand what i’m trying to say. i mean, this kid is really putting some gnarly shit down, but i can’t feel any of those tricks. it’s all done and filmed just because his sponsors arranged so, not because he’s feeling like it. i mean, maybe he does feel it, but it can’t be felt compared to the fact that he HAD to do that… shit, shit, shit.”
I don’t agree with the view exactly but It does bring up an interesting point. The video part has changed. How can something that took someone so much work be overlooked so easily? Obviously one of the main reasons is the internet. With so many great video parts available we no longer watch the same ones everyday before we go skate. I definitely don’t think its the skaters fault. Especially in the instance the comment was on. That means its up to the editor to present the skater in a way that we need to see more. I know one thing I feel is missing is the fun of the search. I remember having to hunt certain videos down to be able to finally watch them. I miss that in a way. I guess that brings us to these two mini remixes is of our own Adam Estrada’s Footy. Originally I had this Idea of editing one boring and one exciting but after all was said and done I don’t think it came out that way at all. Judge for yourself. If you don’t like either its my fault not Adams.
