you see what john drake had to say about the slick graphic re release?

i can understand why he's kinda mad, having atleast their name somewhere would have been a nice gesture.

Kind of stupid thing to get pissed about. Mike Hill designed it and is the one releasing it now. Is John somehow entitled to the graphics that Mike put his name on? If anything you would think he would be stoked that his old graphic gets to be seen and skated once again. Just seems weird. Especially to go from supporting new Alien to suddenly claim that they are some Toys R Us brand just because they reissued one of his boards.

I don't see a problem with it. It isn't even the first time they've reissued them. It's not like they are reissuing Blender and Pendleton graphics. Admittedly I was hoping for new paper mache graphics rather than reissues of the classics but I'll still buy a couple.

Y'all so fake.� majority in here was saying new alien wack. Now you praising it?

i fucking hate these posts

there is more than one person who posts on slap, ergo, multiple opinions, etc etc

hence why he said THE MAJORITY.  And multiple opinions?  Pretty sure there's only 2 opinions.  You like the new AWS, or you don't.  And as Aatila said, THE MAJORITY of people here DID take the opinion that the new AWS was wack.  
exactly haha lol that dude didn't even read my post. He know I'm right.

i was just waiting till page 2 to get some prime real estate for some hot point-counterpoint action





first off

Alien Workshop is dead.








second of all


how the fuck is this ok?

just gonna reissue em' with no ones name on em?



obviously this imagery is Mike Hill's over anyone's...
but idk man, i'd feel lame doing this again without the original guys after making the whole brand one big nostalgia ride.

you'd never see Deluxe doing this without dude's names on the boards.
throw Bo some money... he probably wants to kick some ass over this 



this shit stinks to high hell to me.
it's lost it's soul... just like the product description on the site for each one:

Hyped on the fact that AWS2.0 took the leap into that realm of team ranking. Both of those dudes are on point skateboarding deserves it. I get both sides of the re-issue argument, but skateboarding owes you nothing down the road. Which means I get AW's side a little more I guess. And besides, If NO hype is the NEW hype the dudes should be ULTRA hyped.

Oh, and yeah, taking the AW team to an Farm where Yaje "accidentally" finds his pro board in an Avocado tree would have been super dumb.

Good Launch. 9/10- will slang.

i like this approach better. sick and tired of seeing anything hyped up. almost everything is all hype at this point. more effort goes into the hype than the actual products (videos, teams, boards). no hype is the new hype.

Was hyped on Joey and Yaje, then the reissue fuckery just killed every good vibe I had about the brand again.

I heard about these dudes turning pro a couple weeks ago. Stoked to hear that the shop owner wasn't just blowing smoke.

I understand why people are bummed on the reissues due to the historical context of the graphics and such, but I guess it doesn't resonate as deeply with me because I didn't grow up in that era.
Alien, to me, was: AVE, Dill, Dylan, Omar, etc.
I do agree, however, that Mike should've given credit to the dudes associated with the graphics. At least some recognition. Maybe some compensation.
But, kids these days will never know of the legacy that AWS had/has. I'm assuming that most of them just associate the company as synonymous with Dyrdek and Fantasy Factory, but that's excluding the factor that they do get hyped on the company and end up falling in love with it in the way that most of us had. Which will lead to them digging deeper into their history as a company.
Again, I don't know and am probably not making much sense here. I need more coffee.

Taking the names off the board may be a little lame but  i run into Pitre a few times a month and Workshop seems to always have taken care of the dudes, i know he calls for product whenever he wants, and he generally seems to speak highly of how they treat a lot of the older riders. He has told me Hill is a crazy person and in his own world so who knows, the only issue he's ever bought up about Workshop is i guess it was technically Dyrdek, ClaAr, Blender, Hill, Carter and him that founded the company an in a lot of things that gets left out, it is usuaully credited to Hill and Carter and sometimes Blender.

Like I said above, this isn't even the first time they've reissued them. They rereleased the Bo Turner one around 2011 or so. Mike has sold shirts and pins with the same graphic on it as well. AVE, Dill, and the gang were all still riding for them then. Nobody said anything back then. Probably had something to do with the Rob & Big, Meaty, and Monster energy boards they were making.

No one is owed courtesy, but if you put your energy into building something, be it a company or relationship, it's a bummer to feel like your contribution was forgotten. From his post it sounded like all John would have liked was a phone call?

I know the business/friend/artistic relationship is very tricky to navigate, but in skateboarding especially reputation is important and I would say most pros care a lot that their contribution be recognized. For most of them, the projects they worked on and people they met are all they get.

This fucking rules, I think I will pick up a Yaje board actually.

It would be cool if Alien put something new out, that last little video thing was.. not great. Those short resurrection videos were fire though, it would be nice to see a full video, especially parts from these two and Paul Lilliani edited Alien Workshop style.

Whoever owns the rights to the graphic is entitled to reproduce it whenever/however they want. Just because your name was on it doesn't mean shit and he's not entitled to anything unless he, himself, owns the rights to the graphic. I think it's stupid he's so butthurt.

Birdhouse rereleases graphics all the time. They'll even throw another pro's name on it. Who cares.

What?s up with your avocado obsession?

Well, the avocado not only is one of my favorite fruits but also a symbol of health and kind of freedom. As a child I was very timid to make art, and then finally when I kind of got inspired you know to break that boundary, avocado was the first thing that came to me because I was also learning how to eat at the same time because as a child I was very picky with food. So I was finally learning to love food and learning to love making art and avocados came right at the same time and I stuck with it. And eventually I moved on to all fruits and now I just have a passion for all fruits.

Fuck it, the new pro decks are amazing.

And for the reissues I'd also rather seen them with names on them.
On the other hand it's Hill's intellectual property and he can do whatever he wants with it...

But I also know from a former alien pro that EVERYONE that retired (so not Pops for example) at AWS STILL gets taken care of productwise (ALL product that they want)...
