Another excellent interview in Jenkem and Strickland is keeping it real as fuck.  Love it when people go no holds barred and speak honestly.

Damn Jenkem is killin it so hard.  It's so refreshing hearing someone SPEAK THEIR FUCKING MIND too.  I'm stoked to see what's gonna come with LE also, I think they're off to a good start, and started for the right reasons.  Fun not money.

I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

I like J, but when he spoke at the end about LE and how he hopes it does super well but he just wants to be on the outside kind of sounds like he's setting himself up to be pissed at those dudes if they move to a different thing but keep using the same branding style. Kind of like Baker, without the rumored backstabbing Boss stuff.

I picture him as that crazy metal dude'doyaknowwhatimean' right before mcdermotts part in supper's ready. Awesome and kinda insane. I do love his style aesthetically and especially the audio shit, even with the LE promo the mood was set so clearly with the minimal sound and timing.

Fucking high five.  That's some shit right there. 

I love Reynolds as much as the next guy.  But to be honest, it's his skating I love.  It's not him, I don't know him at all.  I really appreciate someone like Strickland really putting his two cents out there no matter how popular his opinion is.

I appreciate the honesty but this drama is over 10 years old. The logo is good, we get it. Lotta companies had cool logos and didn't make it. Get over it. Andrew Reynolds sells boards. Not that logo. Strickland hasn't done shit down Carlsbad. He has nothing to to with Jim Greco and how he skates. If he was supposed to have a piece of Baker, he should have got it in writing. And I stress 'supposed to.' He should take Reynolds to court if he was so wronged. Bootleg had same style logo, same derelict image, same ads, same editing... and it didn't last. And now he is taking the same retread approach to LE.  

I love Baker 2G. In my top 3. Iconic video. Great music, different (for then) look, but the skating is why kids wore the tape out. Not the elephants. If you are such a visionary, do something new.

oh come on.

i really doubt J is calling these people and asking them to interview him. he did one of the most influential things in skateboarding since jamie's welcome to hell part, and it's obviously still relevant. saying "get over it" holds a weak argument.

He didn't turn down the interview either. It's a cool website but it's not exactly Thrasher yet. None of the major outlets want to hear the same sob story. Maybe instead of 'get over it' the theme should be 'move on.' The look and feel of Baker was fresh and new in 2000. I watched it a million times.  But the reason it is the success it is can't be denied. The skating. Strickland is talented. I hope he has success. But when he goes through this same song and dance every time someone speaks to him, I don't think it's a weak arguement to say get over it or move on.

He doesn't give a fuck, I respect him. The whole early period of baker was so sick. The video, the ads, boards, were so awesome.

Fuck that was great.

Regardless of anyone's opinion about the business stuff, Strix is the shit! We skated until we were hurting during Mardi Gras, dude's nice as fuck and a creative machine.

i think that's part of why everybody is interested in the story. reynolds and co. won't talk about it on their own, and any of the big magazines wouldn't dare ask him. aside from boil the ocean, YWS, jenkem, and others, skateboarding is so incestuous they wouldn't dare do something like ask the other side about it. the only other outlet that asks anything considered a "tough" question is epicly later'd, and reynolds is o'dell's boss.  that shit ain't happening any time soon.

It's the same story over and over. Though I keep reading them. I agree with you about the media. I love Epicly Laterd but O'Dell is not going to ask any rough stuff. In the Antwuan episodes, he was pretty sheepish when he tried asking Reynolds about the Baker image promoting substance abuse. He backed right off after Andrew gave the kinda BS answer. Just like this Danny Way doc won't go into the Josh Swindell stuff.

To be fair to O'Dell and the main 'outlets,' Jenkem didn't really ask Strickland any tough questions either. It just gave him a forum to rant. I liked it.

yeah, you're right. i guess what i failed to say is that reynolds is never going to interview with someone like YWS or jenkem because they WILL ask about stuff like that. the j strickland side is the only side we'll get, because it's been ignored by the other side for so long they can't really deny it without it coming off as complete bullshit.

this. j. strickland seems like a cool dude in that video, but there is no denying that baker's success comes through them ripping the fuck out of shit. i understand that it is really fucked up how he got screwed over, but the company image isn't what is selling the company. little kids don't give a fuck about ad layouts, video editing and lifestyle footage, they care about dudes (and women) doing gnarly shit and that is exactly what baker provides. at the end of the day, i feel bad if this dude legitimately got fucked over, but i really think the skating of the baker dudes is what sells the company at the end of the day. also, i don't understand how this dude is mad as fuck about not getting any credit for his "dues" and then he talks shit about shane heyl getting a board...

Of course the skating is what matters most, but you're a damn fool if you think image doesn't matter. Baker is one of the most image conscious brands in the industry. Weed graphics sell. Hijinks sell. Stupidity sells. If the success of a company only depended on the skating Bootleg would still be around on the strength of this part alone:

business should be settled based on what you can do down the carlsbad gap? for the whole "take him to court" thing...you have any idea how expensive that is? do you really think that two friends that create a skateboard company in the late 90s were putting shit in writing? go read http://www.48blocks.com/gershon/ for some more interesting stories about "the boss"
