TRILOGY

Blogging about a fifteen year old video when the majority of the blogs readers are 15-20 seems a bit pointless, but i'm gonna anyway.

Trilogy was sick when it came out, its still sick now, all of the skaters on the teams featured were rad, apart from Kasper stinking up the place but hey I can forgive them for that (if you don't know who Josh Kasper is he once said in an interview that his ultimate demo would involve him riding in on a Harley, doing a trick over the Harley, probabaly a Benihana, then getting helicoptered out - hell on earth)

Quartersnacks, the guys who've uploaded this, have rather accurately said that Kareem Campbell seems to be better known for his appearrance in THPS than his skateboarding to younger skaters, but Kareem was one of the skaters in the mid to late 90s that was taking skateboarding away from the low to the ground, stinking pressure flip variations of the early 90s and back to what looks good: Pop, Speed, Style. Away from the dorkiness, and frankly crappy looking tricks and taking it back to pure street shredding, anyone who ollies over oil drums in lines is rad, and if you needed any more of a lesson in style did I mention Gino Iannucci has a part too?

Just watch the damn thing and then complain that its not as good as whoever it is you like now, but bear in mind this was from a time when million dollar contracts just didn't happen, generators and HD were no where to be seen and you were far more likely to see a blunt in Kareems hand than a frickin energy drink from his latest sponsor - Kareem, you are dope.



Oh and Kareem pretty much invented the Ghetto Bird - I believe his signature trick in the TH games, although I was skateboarding rather than playing games so I couldn't be sure, its a Nollie hardflip revert, and Kareem did AMAZING ones. If you don't know where the term comes from a Ghetto Bird is a helicopter that circles over Ghettos, originally in LA, they very regularly get shot at and have to be bullet proof on the underside, there you go, you've learnt something today.

Anthony Schultz

When people turn pro they tend to have a clip to say so, in case you were in any doubt he deserves it Anthony Schultz has put this out, ridiculous! Usually using a motorbike is a bit xtreme dude fest, but when you couldn't physically get enough speed then I think that ollie warrants it! Absolutely huge!

The blog has been neglected of late again!

PALACE

We got our first bunch of PALACE decks and clothing in last week, and they just happened to put up this edit of the PALACE crew hitting up some spots in NYC, any video with Chewy Cannon in is good in my eyes, and they have filmed it all on old school VHS style cameras, giving it an old feel like the OG Zoo York Mixtape video of just rinsing through the streets.

DEN BU!

Contests are kinda boring generally, there are a bunch of guys that skate at just the right speed to do the tricks they need to do, and cos they wanna land everything half the time you know what tricks they are gonna do.
Thena along comes Dennis Busenitz at this years Tampa Pro, having apparently only turned up for one day, breezed throught this ridiculous run at Busenitz speed and won the contest, if you aren't hyped for the Real video you are an idiot, plain and simple!
The whole of the Real team shred and Dennis is a true skaters skater, no one dislikes Dennis Busenitz.

He does tricks off the cuff that would be the best trick most off us have ever done!

THE RESKUE VIDEO!
I haven't hyped this for a while! Constant release date questions have made me go low key, and all this snow and bad weather hasn't been helping! But we have been getting footage recently and there are only a few seconds needed for each persons part!
So here is a Hype video with a glimpse of some of the stuff you can expect!
