Title: People who hate on Mind Field
Post by: Alien Sweatshop on February 20, 2009, 02:06:02 PM
If your reasons for hating mind field are "dumb lifestyle shots" or "the parts are too short", then you have never watched an AWS video before and your opinion is irrelevant and useless.

every good video ever has had lifestyle shots and artsy stuff in it,
or shots OTHER than skating

when i think of dull videos i think of digital
or the fallen video
they have no personality at all it just feels like you are watching a movie made in hollywood, perfect spots, sunny in every single shot, and the SAME spots and same tricks...

my friend said "skateboarding hasnt really progressed much recently" but i think it has, there are a lot less handrail parts out now, and also it seems like companies are putting more effort into their videos. dudes are spending more time thinking up new ways to skate spots like not your standard big handrail parts. it was getting to the point where people would just start doing tricks down bigger and bigger stuff and it got played out pretty quick. now im seeing more shit like bigspin bs tail bigspin out, unique ledge combos that ive never seen before. also a lot of people are killing that double kink rail that arto bs lip ender... skating that in a unique way transferring into the bank and such. pappalardos manual kickflip or his ollie ollie kickflip ollie on the bank are what im talking about, spots people normally just say like "fuck this, i know where theres a perfect bank/manny pad" they are actually progressing skateboarding by doing it in new kinds of spots moreso than the guys who are just taking existing tricks and do them down bigger gaps.

when i think of dull videos i think of digital Static 3

I like mind field though, i was pretty much expecting it to come out the way it did. and almost everyone put out good parts.

i liked mind field, except if u took out all the artsy crap the video would have been like 15 minutes long, rather then an hour. it was to much art stuff...


Title: Re: People who hate on Mind Field

yes, but you see, if you took out all the artsy stuff it would cease to be an alien workshop video.

such is the great paradox embroiled in this thread.

i've said it before, but basically watching too much skating without breaks makes you become desensitized to it. after a while it has less of an impact. it is called the law of marginal utility. you eventually get to a point of diminishing returns (basically, the more you consume, the less you enjoy it). that point in different for everyone, but trying to watch fully flared all the way through, by the time i get to marc johnson's part i am falling asleep. it is a much better video when i watch it in shorter segments. likewise, i can focus on any long video better when there is non-skate stuff breaking it up.

Brian Hansen's part was the shit.

The skating in Mind Field is the best I've ever seen in any video.  Omar especially.

The art direction, however, reminds me more of a snowboarding video than a skate video.  Very focused and tight, not as reckless as skate videos.

If this video did anything for me, it got me into Animal Collective, so for that I am grateful.

im kinda impressed with how stupid that comment was about how skate videos are better if they have less skating in them... did i by a skate video to see robot beatles or did i buy it so see someone shred?
and fully flared made u go to sleep by the end cause only like 4 people skate differently on lakai so after seeing 500 smith grind flip trick out or whatever u were just as bored as i was. the video would have been awsome if it went

I know it seems like i only wanted to see the big name guys, but everyone else skated like the french conection guys... and i didnt give half a fuck about those dudes

Koston's vert part was boring.


Title: Re: People who hate on Mind Field
Post by: killthegnar on March 07, 2009, 07:23:16 PM
koston had a vert part? i must have slept through that one... wait... r u one of those horrible, horrible people who thing anything with transition is "vert"? cause if that shit isnt a U at minimum of like 10 feet... shit isnt vert... it kills me inside when someone at the skatepark is like "dude, i cant ollie that pyramid cause i dont skate vert". KILLS ME


Title: Re: People who hate on Mind Field

You missed his vert part?

You gotta watch that again, man.


Title: Re: People who hate on Mind Field
Post by: killthegnar on March 07, 2009, 07:32:47 PM
so i just watched kostons part again... no vert... very little tranny too... u fuckin with me? cause sarcasm is a little tough to get via the internet... otherwise post a link to that, im mildly interested in seeing it, but not enough to really track anything down

you left out pops and olson in your post regarding fully flared, so any opinion you have is moot.

fully flared had probably the worst music of any skate video ever, something i said on the other forum and got hated on, fforward to now, everybody says the music was terrible on that video, what makes FF kinda boring to me at least is the music, i can't watch marc johnson's part because it feels like torture the 3 songs he picked.

Ha, I love the soundtrack to Fully Flared.  I think most of it is because it reminds me of Fully Flared, though.

"Don't Bother Me" is a completely amazing song, though.

Pappalardo, Koston and Mariano had the best songs on that video, the rest was boring as hell, i knew chuck would come out and back that shitty music. for someone as ancient as you and who has been for so fucking long in this you should remind what used to be skate video soundtracks

haha i did forget to put in olson... pops however... his part was good, but kinda a let down knowing what he was capable of and what he put out... oh well...

anyway, music wise, public enemy, bowie, bad brains... rad.
everything else is crap... especially arcade fire... they suck so much it kills me... would endure a life of green day rather then listen to arcade fire once more.

that is the genius of the alter-ego. the chuck account is an audiophile and the BlahBlah account is the antithesis of someone with good taste in music.

chuck, the limp bizcuit stuff was funny way back when. it is even funnier in retrospect.

How did you know?  I'm a sight unseen kind of guy, and that shit just did not measure up.  But in all fairness, how could it?  I don't really remember anything being incredibly good or incredibly bad.  Altogether, I just remember the backside flip.  That tells me more than anything that it wasn't what I consider a good part.
