What's in a porno script?

Things I heard on video this weekend. "This is fun, Yea that's sticky, That is so hard, Hope you got that, Naked Dave, I'm gonna have trouble gettin' it out of that, Hang on here it comes, Did you get that, Oops." But that's NOT from porn... just Concretins skate footage.

I don't understand why film editors don't make big money like actors, 'cause they're the ones doing the really hard part of editing miles and miles of tape(I guess that whole giving up your privacy thing has something to do with it.) Now they might have better equipment, but it is STILL a major PITA to log all this footage and then piece the clips together. Probably wouldn't be so hard to do if I had edited several times throughout the year(like I said I would), rather than shooting 6 tapes worth of skating and not looking at it 'til now. The road to hell is paved with good intentions... just doin' my part for a smooth ride when my time comes. Patience Punk. Anticipation and hype are what movies are all about anyway, right? No? Oh, ok. I'll keep working on it. Just hush, it'll get done.

On to the session: Karma and Mother Nature are trying to make sure we are not getting too spoiled, with good 'crete AND good weather, in December. So our 60 and 70 degree long weekend was followed by a weekend with highs in the 30s. Yep, it's December in the Ohio Valley. But perhaps we'll be able to bust out the shorts again for Christmas vacation. So to battle this reality check we relocated the Church of Skatin' Sunday Service to Corydon and the MofoCompound. Kyle had the ramp house heatin' up, but the condensation dripped from the roof and immediately froze on the ramp, making it a tad bit slick. Nothing a big focused heat blast from a reddy heater can't handle. So just a 20 minute delay for the session, got the ramp dry, and very nice and toasty. We were all quick to shed our extra layers. Gnar on.

It was rumored that EB was no longer incarcerated and planned to make the trip. Low and behold it was true! Dad gave his board back and he skated as if he's been riding every weekend, even though we all know better. Travis rolled up bringin' the total to 6.5 (the .5 being GibZilla). A full on session ensued. But Mofo looked bored as hell, even while doing blunt pivot combos, various rock-n-roll concoctions, various wall slides, switch 50-50s(yea, whatev), and machMofo 5-0s. ("various" means at least 5 versions of said trick) Punk. Trav was lockin' in the 50-50s and havin' no trouble with the wall carves. EB worked rock fakies and tail stalls, my fave being the judo tail stall. Wade must have taken some muscle relaxers or something, because he was as rubbery and noodley as Burnquist. Super cool and smooth tweaked out slides above the 8' mark, and grinds that you can't possibly pull in with your body tweaked like that, pulled in every time. MiniZilla even looked at a drop in... I think next summer, he'll stop bringin' the bike to the park. :) I was on a mission to have a good session, and learn one or two new things. Not a practice session, but you know, skate well and feel good enough to learn new sh**. I was there too, right up until that switch drop in attempt that ended with a thunk - board to ankle. I felt my gnar completely drain from the point of impact. Gonna feel that one for a couple o' weeks. I did finally pull a 5-0, but only after watching Skidzilla bust them with "ah-thor-it-tay." Skid was on once again, and landed pretty much every thing he has, and well. FS grinds brought in without the DuanePetersHangUp even, and alley oop 50-50s, though short, but he made every one. I wanted to quit and just chill multiple times, but everyone just kept skating, and kept skating. It was an understood obligation to not piss on the session. Nut up and skate.

Well done 'Cretins. Well done. When I grow up... oh nevermind, just not gonna. This is too much fun.

    I refer to that variant as my ka-ra-tay tail stall - been working on it for weeks :P
