Villagers: Out of Context, vol. 1

You wouldn't believe how easy it is to kill a baby... -Matt Nielsen

Villagers: Out of Context, Introduction

Ever get real deep into a topical conversation with friends or acquaintances, and then for whatever reason you take a small step back from the conversation and realize how obsurd a specific sentence would sound to an outsider who had no context at all? Well, this segment is dedicated to those moments.

Hope you enjoy Villagers: Out of Context.

Lost Fundays (Funday 10)

The first funday video I made was in January of 2009. This blog existed for some time before then and videos were posted as individual tricks, as some of you remember. I realized that a lot of those clips, if not all of them, were probably forgotten shortly after they were posted. So, I decided to make a Funday with all the leftover clips, aptly titled Lost Fundays. I hope you enjoy!

Send Me Footy pt. 7: "Banksy"

  I remember this day was super fun.  This spot was across from Redmond High School but I think it has been demolished, or at least fully skate stopped, since then.  That day was also one of the first tricks I can think of where Jake was in front of the lens instead of behind it.  You should see the tricks he gets now... (filmer part!).

Jamie Bernard

  My brother Kyle skated with Jamie many years ago, probably around 1991-94.  They were pretty good friends for a while.  I was rather young and barely skated but I remember going over to Jamie's house once, where he had a slew of ramps in his back yard.  The guy seemed like a pro to me he was so good.  When my family moved away from Seattle to Issaquah, Jamie and Kyle's friendship sort of ended.  Years and years went by.  One day at Innerspace, I saw someone who looked familiar.  I asked who he was and sure enough it was Jamie.  He remembered me and my brother, which was cool.  And, of course, his skating was still  unbelievable.  He was doing transfers I had never even thought of, much less witnessed.  Sadly, that man is now gone.  I wish I had known him better, but I'm glad I can say that I did at all.  You'll be missed man.
