Not sure if this should maybe go into Photos/Video, but oh well.. there appears to be some dude making a documentary on the skate scene in Soviet-era East Germany. From what I can gather from the trailer, there's a lot of cool footage in there, and it seems like it might be a decent watch. They're trying to crowd-source the rest of the funding to get it released, so be a dear and chip in a tenner to make up for all those Youtube watches/pirated DVD rip downloads. Or don't, and look forward to watching it anyway.

skating is all about choosing your outfit very deliberately, going out in public. looking super sick. and then riding your board a little bit

Celebrity Tropical Fish was such a great video. Hill's part is all time. I wish someone would put up a copy of Powell's "Play." That was good, too. My VHS copy is all fucked up.

Reminds me of an old On Video article 'rockets to Russia' where they would glue hockey pucks together to make wheels.
