I really enjoy his skating.

Also a reminder that Half Cabs are awesome.

That was insane, I sadly have to admit that I almost forgot this guy existed, and I fucked up on that. Hope someone is paying him to skate because it'd be a crime not to.

Wow. That's super lame of Thrasher. Fire up the re-edit with a Grindline "The Band" song  ::)

Post by: tkp on September 08, 2018, 08:01:58 AM
Lee's got serious pop!

The editing threw me off for a bit. All of the stock footage mixed in, especially dude with the hole in the head. Perhaps there's a hidden message in there that I missed, but it took my mind off of the skating and into some dark place.

I don't think Thrasher hates Leonard Cohen and took the video down. I'm guessing they got called on the rights to use it.

That sucks because the song went so well! Iíve been listening to loads of Leonard Cohen lately too and this got me hyped!

Hopefully the next song isnít a typical thrasher song!

Saw on wknd's story that they are using the same song in their new video. Maybe Grant called Thrasher?

Yeah. Wouldn't be the first time they've ripped off Canadians and been babies about it.
Title: Re: Lee Yankou - Baby Blue
Post by: super-basic on September 08, 2018, 06:29:14 PM
Ripping off Canadians as in Leonard Cohen? Cause he's dead.

Edit: never mind. WKND ripping off blue tile lounge, with the Leonard Cohen song. GOT IT.
Title: Re: Lee Yankou - Baby Blue
Post by: Chris Hansen is back on September 08, 2018, 08:06:25 PM
They stole a skit almost verbatim from Nick Genova a few years ago and then lashed out when they got called on it.
Title: Re: Lee Yankou - Baby Blue
Post by: Pappy Jones on September 08, 2018, 08:50:16 PM
Sounds like a coincidence where they both used the song, not a rip-off. Kind of a frustrating situation to be in. But if that's true, pretty lame of wknd to think they deserve the song more or something.

"WKND successfully petitioned Thrasher to remove free content due to overlapping song usage" is definitely one of the farthest reaching conspiracies I've read on here.

Wow, if true, that is embarrassingly lame of Grant or whoever runs the show at WKND. Also lame of Thrasher to let some twerps dictate their content.

Can someone tell me what the OG song was? I love Cohen and the song fit so well with the edit but I was unfamiliar with the track. Thanks in advance.

Death of a Ladies Man from the 1977 album of the same name. It'll be out soon when they put the entire video online. it's just the Thrasher clip that needed a re-edit because of Weekend.

It's a live clip from a Nina Simone doc. I don't know if it exists outside of that.

It was better with Leonard Cohen but it was still great. Never thought I'd love the way someone weaves between cones.

WKND has always been wack fr. I like the people on the team, but as a collective they seem like a bunch of beta-male goobers

That part had a wild guest trick roster. I never thought I'd see Antoine Asselin, Corey Duffel, and Dan Plunkett together outside of a transworld video.

Yeah he's still on Heroin. I kind of wish those rumors of him going to Alien were true but Heroin is alright. I'm hoping to see some footage from him at the Dime Glory Challenge again this year. Dude killed it the previous years.

Also maybe it's weird but I love seeing people skate half cabs. I don't why but I think that shoe just looks so good in video for some reason.
