24 Hour Party Person

Great part from Joe Gavin in the 2006 Manchester DVD “Workers and Lurkers”, vital information which you may notice I copied directly from the Mpora link. I’ve seen clips here and there of this guy but this part is for sure my favorite. He’s got some Paul Shier sort of hyper-flippy ledge tricks happening but he can do power moves too, like the switch ollie at 1:24 in the link. Also I’m really into the way he points his ollies and the way he snaps his tricks in the parking garage line (1:40), which sound so great in this clip for some reason.

This dude’s got a longer part here from last year but I’m more a fan of this video that features one of the better-looking nollie noseslides on a ledge that I’ve seen in quite some time and a switch frontside schralp on a planter. Interesting question: which of these three pretty bad music selections is the worst? I lean toward the PBJ out of principle, but “Landslide” is a whole nother level of depressing.

    When you said “Landslide” I got all amped that it would be the Smashing Pumpkins cover. But still a good selection IMO (who does he think he is–Rodney Mullen?).
    That’s a whole ‘nother realm of skate video music supervision–selecting the most depressing songs possible.
