My First iMovie....

So, here's mai first iMovie, and moar importantly mai first video that I've ever made, EWER!
It's made using random video clips from mai iPhone4.
Now, seeing as I just got the phone at the end of August, I didn't realize that I had to rotate it when taking vids so it would be formatted to fit on a screen.
That's why it is so vertical with two huge black bars on either side. Sorry, n00b alert!

You may see Wellborn Clothing rider Shawn Turner with a cameo fakie wallride to regs, mai friend [Still Skatin'] Kevin with a mallgrab and soem bonelesses (sp?), random clips from North Coast Music Festival (NCMF), and, of course, me with the 360 slide, 360 shuv and soem slappies.
The track I used is "Consequently" by a band called Agitpop who put out "Stick It!" in 1989 on Twin Tone records.

As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Dead Tide" by Arch Rival from the compilation "Masters of Electronic Dance Music: 69 Rave Dance Hits" released in 2011.

I got this album off of iTunes for $9.99 - and yes, it does contain 69 tracks. That's arond 14¢/track.
It contains Psy-Trance, DarkPsy, Dubstep, Electro, Tech House, and Progressive Trance.
Even if you don't like some tracks it's still cheaper than buying ten tracks separately.

The Boneless Ones: The Keg Kept A Flowin'...

So, this is soem real skate rock from when skate rock was real and skaters didn't have trainers.
I own this volume of skaterock on vinyl, the cover is die-cut to the shape of an early 80's pig-nose deck. The front is the bottom of the board, and the back is the griptape and bolts, with track info.

I absolutely LOVE the guitar solo on this song, if you didn't know, this is an altered cover version of the song "Train Kept A Rollin'."

Also, members of this band left and did a project called Hell's Kitchen.
Hell's Kitchen contained members The Boneless Ones, Fang and Verbal Abuse.
How's that for epic?

As of the end of this post I am currently listening to "Eggshell" by Autechre from the album "Incunabula" on Pandora radio, on mai custom channel called "Waveform Radio" after the record label from Sedona, Arizona... Waveform Records.

Wrex Cook and Erich Bambei

So, here's a video from Toast skateboards of mai friend Wrex Cook and this dewd Erich Bambei.
I dunno who Erich is, but he rages also. Most of these parks are in the south, I could pick out Kanis, and their DIY spot.
The Little Rock, AK park might be in there soemwhere, too.
Toast is a midwest skate company from central Indiana, FYI.
Also, czech oat the Trife Street blog, those guys keep it REAL real.

As of the end of this post  am currently listening to "Recovery Road (sample)" by Agitpop from the album "Stick It!" released on Twin Tone records in 1989.

I just recently found it on iTunes.
Twin Tone will custom print a re-issue for you if you order it through them.

Milking 9/11...

So, in a way, 9/11 was a good thing.
Hear me out. It's bringing friends together to have fun, cherish life, and share stories.
If we can't skate, the "terrorists" have won.
