Theatre of Pain

BA_slam

Folded my ankle on a poorly planned bit of board flipping this weekend, so forgive my wanting to share the misery of this bone-crunching slam from Brian Anderson in the fourthcoming “Gang of Four-Star” promo. This vid looks like it’ll also feature a generous helping of Gonzo antics, Guy Mariano’s steadily expanding universe of ledge combo tricks, Tyler Bledsoe’s newly floppy hair, some T-Pain references and a bonus-section documentary by Spike Jonez that focuses on Sean Malto’s pearly whites. Holy shit, what about that fakie backside tailslide* that Max Schaaf did, holy shit. Nine out of ten doctors decree that Four-Star’s brand breezy tour video complements the RICE/Naproxen regimen well, as does Vince Del Valle’s Black Label part. And Leinenkugel’s. Viva la VCR…

*did we get it right this time?

    the RICE/naproxen regimen!

  2. Watson Says:

    Peter Raffin’s section in God Save The Label was amazing. Me and some friends watched two videos that night, and by the time we got to Label, we were a little drunk and generally talked through the whole thing. (Not that it’s not a good video.) But Peter Raffin’s section shut us the fuck up.

    You got the trick name correct, but shit, Leine’s? Damn man, that ankle must be bad.

  4. theProgram Says:

    naproxen sodium and booze…a delicious combination that will make you forget that you can even feel pain at all. that is, until your liver pickles and you’re left dealing with that whole mess…but, ya know, whatever.

    Just watched some self-made skate compilations on the ol VCR this weekend and noticed that I do miss the grainy/warm picture as opposed to the HD/flourescent white gleam of the recent DVDs

    !VIVA LA VCR!

    Best way to provide the C of rice is with below- the- knee compression stockings fron the drugstore. Also, get Zantac or what not to prevent the heartburn naproxen will give you.

    It’s fakie frontside tailside or fakie ollie to back tailslide

  11. theProgram Says:

    Dear Trent,

    You’re wrong. Nowhere in that trick does he ever travel frontside, unless you wanna consider it a switch trick, which would have you calling it a switch nollie frontside noseslide, and then you’d be the guy talking about switch nollies. You don’t want to be that guy do you?

    Love,

    Skateboarding.

  12. Trent Says:

    The coping is in front of him, so it’s frontside

    I don’t care if he’s making good money skateboarding. Especially when you don’t care if Koston/Malto does.
