I can see how Slap our whoever wanted to promote more drama cause everyone seems like they are normal, kid skaters. No Forrest copycats I guess. Seems like it should just be good skating and less bullshit, which is a good and bad thing.

1) that took quite some time
2) not really down for 1 elimination every day, give them all a chance for some days
3) still looking forward to this series!

i don't like the idea of the daily elimination either, a shitty attitude sure, tell someone to fuck off after one day but it seems odd to judge ones skating in just a day.

all these kids were cool as fuck.  i'm backing every one.  all of them got down.

i haven't seen any of the episodes, the first episode looked really good, i'm looking forward to see how they all turn out.

What a bunch of faggots. There needs to be people like Forrest if this thing is going to be entertaining. No one wants to see a whole group of Mr. Nice Guys. The dude with the fro is sick though, I remember he did this really crazy line at the Brooklyn Banks.

They should introduce age cap of 18 or 19 next year because there is a slim chance a dude past 20 can make it in skateboarding. Takes a lot of skill and persona to do it. Damn, Forrest should have won last OAIM.

Based on those intros, I'd suggest SLAP edit out any part where they talk. The skating was sick, and they all seem like nice kids...I wish them all the best, but this definitely isn't a group of scholars.

I guess being put on the spot of doing a first interview would be kinda brain numbing though

My sentiments exactly.

It would probably be pretty easy for anybody with a half decent editing program to make a "skate-only" version of these ep's. If a poster WERE to make a skate-only accompaniment a few days or so after each new one drops, I'm sure their rep would rise accordingly (So long as the music is equally classy)

After watching the intros I can't help but be hyped for these.  The 2010 series holds a special place in my heart since it was summer and I could actually skate, but these will probably get me out in the cold for some shredding.  It's weak that people are being like "they aren't intelligent I only want to see skating".. There's more than enough skate clips with no talking out there.. The beauty of OAIM is getting to know these random ass awkward dudes.

I also just realized that Cards kinda looks and sounds like Rueben Barrack.

i don't like the idea of the daily elimination either, a shitty attitude sure, tell someone to fuck off after one day but it seems odd to judge ones skating in just a day.
Considering how long this took to make it's really fucked up that they'd eliminate a skater based off of one day of skating.

Thinking if I was in this, I would be eliminated the second day if this was the way they were eliminating.  If I had the option to skate New York, the first day I would just be skating non stop all day and night and then day 2 would come around and I would be so sore and not wanting to try anything.   This is what happens when I go on trips and such so this being a way a contest is decided is retarded in my opinon

That would be the skatingest raddest skateboarding twist on a reality show ever! How sick that our peoples would have done it that way.
I was looking forward to OIAM too, but the "eliminations" by the judging panel is a bit unseemly to me: too much like a reality show meets a contest. It would be better if everyone would stay the whole time and then a single winner was announced by votes portioned out to:
SLAP voters
Judging panel
Guest pros
Each OIAM

Seems like everyone is killing it. My favorite was that front tail pretzel at the ConEd banks.

They're seriously going to eliminate the first person based on that high ollie contest?

who ever has the smallest ollie gets elimintated!..... thats some stupid shit right there. imagine how fucked it would be being the one kicked off for not ollieing as high as the others haha so whack , man they should base it on there skateboarding. maybe little games will be how they manage to pull off that one cat kicked off a day shit.

Let's complete a list of people who are pro, but would be eliminated from OIAM due to low not high enough ollies.
i wonder if joey brezinksy could ollie that thing.
seems like you can't make it in NY with no pop(s).
hoping for a "bs ollie off a sidewalk during the night"- challenge.

Skating is good, but everything about this is so shitty.  Why would you send a kid home after a day because he can't ollie some shit.  So dumb.  Whoever is in charge of this sucks.  But Simoni, John and Matt Militano are killing it.

Why not eliminate based on high ollie? I think that will be interesting. Would be just as random to base it off one day of skating and making a subjective decision on who wasn't "ripping".

this whole editing is bizarre.  i don't know that they did to a lot of the VX night footage either, it looks terrible now.

when you're out skating with all the homies and you break your board, you're bummed, because that means you can't skate for the rest of the day.

Yeah, that was rough. I would have had less of a reaction had there been a 5 second "Brought to you by CCS" stinger somewhere in there. And I like how they directed the guys to be all, "Oh, dope! Can't wait to see what new and Stars 'n' Straps gear they got up in this bitch!" Note to marketing: a lot of consumers are much smarter than you give them credit for and seeing shit like this actually pushes us away from the brand you're selling.

Last One in a Million was so entertaining because of Forrest, but its only the first episode so i could be wrong. Also an elimination an episode? What a retarded rule, slap ya fucked up!

This looks like it could be more interesting.

And $20 a day? Damn, that is pretty harsh. I have never been to NYC but I can imagine that if I had to push around SF all day and night with $20 a day and no access to a kitchen I would be eating pretty trife.

Edit: Hadn't finished the episode yet when I made my comment. I hope they don't use anymore HD fisheye (acid trip lens)... or any HD for that matter. And I am pretty hyped so far that all the kids seem to have good attitudes.

bobby would have eliminated everyone for skating his spots. he would have declared himself winner, but at the same time not acknowledged the contest because it is now 'too mainstream.'

These are just skateboarders with socially awkward tendencies. No need to judge their personalities and merits like it's your Mom's soap operas. Sick skating, shitty fact on the high ollie contest. Cardiel for the win.

Its not like he even cried either, he was just bummed. If you don't understand being bummed breaking your board while trying a trick that you almost landed, or breaking your board at the beginning of the session, then you probably don't really even like skating very much.

And $20 a day? Damn, that is pretty harsh. I have never been to NYC but I can imagine that if I had to push around SF all day and night with $20 a day and no access to a kitchen I would be eating pretty trife.

$1 dollar Slices, $1 dollar dumplings 25 50 75 cent snacks...

Theres actually alot of good cheap eats here you can stretch $20 pretty good

if youre young and you get $20 a day to eat for nothing, youre stoked. can they not spend their own money or something?

this whole shit is fucked. As a viewer the only emotion I get from this is disgust for the series. They tried so hard to make it a mainstream reality show that in the process, they destroyed everything that made the shows original formula not only interesting but inspiring.

I suspect this has something to do with RIDE, the youtube channel OIAM is being posted to this year.  Everything on that fucking channel just oozes cheeseballs.  Anyone got the lowdown?  I'm pretty sure someone / some people connected to Ride are the ones responsible for the

1) the shitty editing.
2) the shitty ideas.

I mean, even with the dumb ollie contest, they could have at least done something that redeemed the skating the skaters did during the day.  I could have been there, skated nothing all day, but still would have stayed at the end of the day.  How about exemptions from eliminations like most reality tv shows (assuming they have eliminations)?  I mean, if they're going to make it like one anyways, you might as well take the good ideas from them too.

Regardless, it doesn't change the fact that the ollie contest was dumb dumb dumb.  I don't really care too much about Rohan or Lou, they were more or less just there doing what they were told.  Rohan was a bit more empathetic though...

Hes the one producing all the whacky challenges as well as the Lurker Lou board snap survivor style elimination. They wanted to play off the "Lurker Lou is a dick head" drama to attract viewers.

I skate with Lou a bunch, yeah he has a rep for being a dickhead and I hate it when people say "oh you just gotta know him hes nice" but Lou is actually a pretty nice once you do get to know him, dude rips but he will def know if your doing something whack. I even used to hate Lou when I was younger.

 Matt hit me up after he got eliminated and said it wasn't even that bad getting eliminated cause now he could just skate around city for the rest of the time without worrying about doing stupid shit for OIAM, he's also flow skate mental now so its not like hes nowhere after all that.

The production value is also horrible all the audio keeps getting blown out when people are talking

yeah of course, talent like that doesn't go unnoticed.  I'm still bummed though, especially since I liked Alex Klein as a skateboarder, but if what you say is true...lost respect for the guy.

So about Matt being able to skate in NY after being eliminated, was he on his own from there on out, or was it like "you're not on the show, but you can still crash here at night while you check out New York" ?

 Matt and the other dudes eliminated were sent off with the 5boro guys, so Matt was skating around with that crew the rest of the time. I think he was allowed to still stay there, if not he probably crashed at Colin (mandible claws) apartment.

Cant wait to see his version of it.

In that case, I'm not entirely pissed off.  In fact, I'm glad he got to do some actual skating in NY.  I was fooled by the drama of the show, because they clearly suggested Matt was packing his bags and going home.  And I guess that's why nobody batted an eyelash over how ridiculous the concept of the show was this year?  Everyone probably knew the show was just for views anyways.  I would totally pick skating with the 5boro crew over doing the show too.

Also looking forward to a different edit.  There's zero Slap charm this year, it has a whole different vibe from every Slap video I've seen.

Lurker Lou is a dick to people sometimes but his Lurkers 2 part was one of my favorites can't hate on that..

that dude matt's skated here before he won a rohan contest like a year or two back i think he did nollie heel boardslide down this 9 rail shut the shit down basically...he doesn't/didn't need OIAM but i thought he was gonna win

It's not 'the way the cookie crumbles', its the way OIAM's fucking integrity crumbles

I think OIAM was looking for a Forest-like character to play a "the villian" to keep things interesting and Lurker Lou is that guy.

I can tell in the way they introduced all 3 judges

It's like he's the Simon Cowell of this series

Wow. I was really skeptical about all the rumors about OIAM this year, but its all true. That was fucking terrible. There are so many reasons that was terrible, and it blows my mind that nobody producing it realized it.
Have a contest that is based around going to a city and skating it, and then completely discount all of the going around the city and skating it? Are you serious? I wouldn't try at all at the spots the next day and would just save my energy for the elimination, and cruise the spots for fun. This approach will absolutely destroy the quality of skating in the street.

Alex Klein should be chased out of the industry for this, and I mean this in a purely economic/business minded way. The guy took the most successful product a brand had, and completely destroyed it. Who's going to watch this and think "I'm going to be part of this next year!"  I would never trust this guy with a video project that  I was in charge of. Its at 106 likes and 1065 dislikes now, I'm not saying I disliked it so much that I wouldn't hire him. I'm saying he took a video series that was wildly popular, and made it wildly unpopular. All he had to do was maintain the ship on clear waters, and somehow he managed to figure how to throw a rock in the ocean and intentionally hit it. If slap wants to put up a video that gets a bunch of likes, fire this clown on film as the final episode. So many people will hit that thumbs up.

Oh, and fuck all of the judges. First, if Lurker Lou is just acting that way to play up that image, he's lame as fuck, and is basically a low rent Sheckler (shitty reality star). Also, if I knew what was going down and what my role was in this contest, I wouldn't be ok with being in it. They all knew how lame this was going to be, and still proudly looked into the camera and said lame shit like "somebody's gonna have the pop and somebody's gonna get the drop?" Wow. Have you no shame? Embarassed for the dude.  You could see Rohan being sympathetic, which gives me the slightest amount of sympathy for him, but while I was watching this, my hate wasn't going to whoever made this, it was to the 3 asshole judges who showed up at the end of the session and kicked a kid out for not ollieing high enough.

that's what i was thinking.  they took something so good and made it so awful.  the way the show has been, at the very least skaters get an awesome experience getting to skate a bunch of spots for a week, meet pros, make some friends.  and, best case, get hooked up and have some great opportunities come out of it.   why would anyone want to be on this to be publicly humiliated?

Shit's stupid, doesn't need to be said again. Can't judge skating from a high ollie contest but dude shoulda been able to clear that low add bar. Militano will get somewhere with his flippity flop skating, maybe a spot on Almost so everyone can not give a fuck about him. And I don't believe how many people don't know Lou Sarowsky. Thought most skaters knew him, I'm not even from New York but it's hard to forget shit like wallride nollie out to backside 5-0. Dudes skating is memorable, the show just kinda makes him look like a kook but you're judging someone based on a combined 20 seconds of strategically and badly edited comments. So what if he stomped the dudes board, think he didn't get hooked up with a little product out of this, at least a replacement? It was a lame and probably staged dramatic act, and a failure, but not like it was insulting. Kid got a free trip to NYC and some widespread name recognition out of the deal. Done ranting, OIAM has been cheesy after the first couple times around, don't see why people expect it to be awesome.

I think the most valid criticism is that now the kids know that skating hard all day doesn't count for shit, they're going to coast then go for the elimination.  This will immediately drop the level of footage I'm sure. 

Also I want to see how they edit that one kid quitting because he realized it was bullshit.

the focusing boards thing was predetermined, not lurker lou just doing it, which makes him not being able to focus it even funnier

and if you guys actually knew lou you would know:

he has the capacity of being much more of a hater and him in that episode wasn't anything crazy. think about the editing before acting like the only footage they had was lou, you'll see that editing is everything.

and the dude is more og than all you youngins, if anyone had a problem with lou its because your a little bitch ass

When I was young and just started skating I found a group of other skaters who had just started too, and we started up our own little crew. We would skate together all the time. I remember for the longest time we thought that whoever had the highest ollie was the best one out of the group. We didn't look at anything else, if you had the highest ollie, you were automatically the best one. We were kids after all. Every day we would stack up boards and other things like parking cones and pizza boxes and see who had the highest ollie, and the person with the highest ollie was declared the best one of the group, up until someone else tops them, then they're declared the best. Eventually as we started skating more and more we realized that a high ollie wasn't as important as we thought it was.  We realized that good skating was more than just a high ollie, it's about style and consistency and what tricks you do, and that anyone who judges how good or bad a skater is based on how high their ollie is is probably a total tool... Oh dear, look at me, I'm rambling. What was I talking about? Oh yeah.... Fuck this show. I have a shit ton of negative things to say, but most of it has already been said in the past couple of pages or in the youtube comments.

if they wanted to have challenges, they should have them do it for rewards instead of elimination. "save your legs, since you won the ollie challenge Cardiel will be doubling you on his bike around to spots today"

some guy in this thread mentioned survivor and it reminded of a game my friend and i would play on mini ramps that we called "survivor". everyone skates it at once with some contact allowed and the last one still on their board wins. at this point they might as well bring everyone back at the end and decide the contest that way

kerry getz would have focused that board first try, no matter it's DLX wood whatsoever. he would have focused all the other dudes decks as well, popped over that stupid element thing on his way out. at least rohan is in there.

The mental image of this is utterly hilarious to me.

Pretty ridiculous the amount of shit Lou is catching from the children of the internet for this.� The only people hating on Lou didn't know who he was before watching this.
I knew who he was, some random NYC head who might have skated for 5boro, but really, do you blame people for hating the guy based on this introduction, he's being a reality show douche. If that's not who he really is, its worse. It means he's being fake for fame. The only people backing him are the ones pretending this show doesn't exist.

Its not like he's even a Team manager or anything. If they had Sam Smythe or somebody talking shit it would make sense- he knows how to choose 'em. This dude is just bitter and burnt out.

even if it was scripted in an attempt at parody, they failed. i dont know why these old east coast guys always have to have a chip on their shoulder. like, yo dog, you dont even know, dudes og. who gives a shit. that was not creative or interesting in any way. lurker lou just made a fool of himself. if he wanted to act like an asshole, he should have gone all out. yes, they got people to talk about their show, but all that is being said is that it was annoying. why not have (as someone suggested) challenges for rewards, such as not being eliminated if you win a high ollie challenge. the thing is, people are going to watch this show whether there is drama or not. i guess we wont necessarily be blowing up the message board, but, you didnt hear this from me, but, there is a business side to skateboarding, and theyre not afraid to toss the word "marketing" around. on a side note, tollentino's high ollie was over a bent bar, so, yeah.

The only lame thing about Lou was that he failed to break the board first go.

Apparently Joseph Gallagher filmed a clip of Lurker Lou that was used without his permission.

As it's been pointed out, SLAP, as in the people who go into the office every day and produce content didn't actually have much control over the project. From everything I understand, Alex Klein was given complete creative control in contract before the events of the week. That means the manner in which the contest was run as well as the way the series was edited. Honestly, nobody but Alex even knows how the series is going to end.

As far as the Ride channel, I don't really know why it's on there. I think that was more of a High Speed decision.

By the way, I skated with Alex Conn, Kennedy Cantrell, and Mandibleclaw last night. They all testify that Lurker Lou is dope.

Don't bother hunting it down.  It was 8 minute of boredom (ollie challenge) and 1 awkward minute of Lurker Lou attempting and failing at stomping Matt Militano's board (he was eliminated).  There was a reason it got 983 dislikes on youtube, shit was lame.

I think mandibleclaw is going to come through with that, and thank god. it would be tragic to see footage that these kids are capable of producing not see the light of day. especially at a city that has so many spots to offer. its kind of horrible that all this bullshit is happening during a "season" where the skaters are arguably the best OIAM has ever had.

Maybe because they hated the response they got from the episode and saw the filming issue as an excuse to get rid of the whole episode instead of just getting rid of that one clip.

The episde got pulled because the filmer that filmed the nollie inward heel of Lou is suing.

The top three contestants had to suffer the consequences due to the fact that Slap cancelled the filming of the final episodes on the west coast. Jus put the breaks on the show and sent everyone home.

This is only going to ge stupider...

True Story

not SLAP.  the producer, who had been given creative control.  everyone else actually involved with SLAP, including the owners of high speed productions, had no idea he was canceling the show (not to imagine all the other shenanigans).  when it happened everyone tried to basically fight him.

took a lil road trip w/ lurker lou and some people many years ago. this was when 411 was still kinda relevant, and before Vicious Cycle came out. at one point in the car, one of lou's boys was sweatin him and sayin, "lou man, you got all this sick footie, give it to 411 for a wheels of fortune." to which lou replied, "nah man, im waiting for zered's video to drop. that's when im gonna show the skate world some new shit." very true story.

for some reason, ever since then, i haven't been able to take him seriously.

gap to 5050 was cooler because he thought about skating the spot that way.
Skating a park is a nice way to warm up.
Are the brooklyn banks actually gone? Aren't they right by there? If its still around its kind of a "must hit" for NYC, right?

So, it's a good thing to use outdated equipment, rather than get a modern rig that captures more detail at a higher frame rate?

Makes sense.

Seriously, I never got all the HD hate. Just cause some people don't do it right, doesn't mean it sucks. On the contrary, it's better. The VX had its time. Hell, it had a longgggg as time. It's time to retire it and move on, guys. Embrace change; don't be afraid of it

After watching that clip of Kennedy, I'm a fan. That was a really good part. There's a halfcab flip into a hill in the part that doesn't seem like much, but I know exactly where that hill is, a friend of mine lives at the top of it, and rolling down it at all is insane. Its as steep as hills get in SF, and goes straight into a wall. I don't know how he made the turn with the speed he picked up even going from the point he did. The whole part was really good, his style is amazing and he does really cool tricks, but I wanted to point that one out because I bet most people didn't even notice it.

i have no idea how they made the HD fisheye footage look that bad, gave me a fucking headache

After watching that clip of Kennedy, I'm a fan. That was a really good part. There's a halfcab flip into a hill in the part that doesn't seem like much, but I know exactly where that hill is, a friend of mine lives at the top of it, and rolling down it at all is insane. Its as steep as hills get in SF, and goes straight into a wall. I don't know how he made the turn with the speed he picked up even going from the point he did. The whole part was really good, his style is amazing and he does really cool tricks, but I wanted to point that one out because I bet most people didn't even notice it.

you were joking about that halfcab flip right? or did we watch different clips.

That gap to 5-0 was lame, thats being a asshole in a bad way

Lou is awesome, especially paired with mean man

It's funny because if you look closely, AS Josh is landing his gap 50-50, you can see Mikey creepin' in back about to tell the filmer what his next trick is gonna be (which is the clip they cut to after that). 

At the same time, I'm pretty sure they purposely edited it to make Mikey look like a dick haha

ummm...why exactly do you feel the vx can't be beat? That just doesn't even make sense to me. It produces lesser video quality, therefore it can't be beat  ??? Now, I'm not saying it looks bad - that would be idiotic - but it just doesn't make sense why'd you'd prefer to see the same skate clip but in a lower resolution.

You can never really tell by the angle. I've seen nothing hills made to look like something (see the "hill" with the hubba Silas wallied over, its NOTHING- though the trick was still a good one) and real hills made to look like nothing. granted, he's not going from the absolute top, I'm sure he's cruising.

 There is a time and place for everything, Cali school yards look great in HD with a cliche slomo dolly shot, but something about skating fast though traffic just doesn't look right in HD, at least not as right as it looks on a Vx1.

Most Hollywood films are still shot on Film, while they make HD cameras now that can produce a almost identical image, why do they do that? because it gives you a look you just cant exactly get with Digital Video, you can come close but not spot on. should they get off the nostalgia train too?

I suggest you read more...
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_cinematography (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_cinematography)

You also have to take into account Digital filming has only been around for a few decades.

Nowadays, many movies are shot with a mix of digital and analog, with popularity of digital capture increasing every year.



edit: Not to mention, Hollywood films, whether shot with digital or film, both have very high resolutions.

In the case of the vx vs. modern-day HD prosumer cameras...it's not even a contest.

i'd love a vx 1000 reissue, that shots 4:3 and the same quality as the original vx, but records digital.
but i guess the market is not ready for taking a step backward and making the best out of old and new technology.

1. I don't think you've been paying attention dude. More and more big budget Hollywood movies are shooting on digital since the advent of RED cameras and the Arri Alexa. For mainstream movies, shooting on film will be very rare by 2020. The major studios are pretty much trying to make all the directors use these cameras because you can't shoot 3D natively on film, you have to post convert it. Also, there's a lot less actual work involved when you shoot digital. They basically just want to save time and money.

2. The film vs video argument is not even close to being the same thing as the HD vs VX argument. Super 35mm has a resolution of around 5k and regular 35mm film has a resolution of around 4k. That's the same exact thing digital cinema cameras shoot. And don't even get me started on IMAX, there is no digital format that's even comparable to the quality that puts out. I get the point of what you were trying to say and I'm not trying to correct you or anything but what I'm basically saying is, shooting on film is practical in the sense of getting high quality images. There is no practical purpose for using a low resolution camera that was created in the 90s. When you shoot on vx at this point you're basically doing it for nostalgia. HD footage has higher quality than SD footage, period. This isn't even debatable.

With that being said, I don't even mind seeing VX footage. I don't care what someone chooses to film with as long as it looks good.

Sounded like Steve squashed the Corndog idea when the panel conferred.

I seriously don't get it though. Slap is always hosting photoshop contests nowadays and the level of artistry is on par with what I just witnessed in that episode. How does a "vague" ghetto scene trump a corn dog or a cownicorn??

Wow. How did this going from being the best skate contest to worst in the next version.
How did this idea come out of someone's mouth without getting shot down in one second
I will probably keep watching, just to see how stupid it gets.

I'm pretty sure someone ollie'd this same street gap and then went under/through a street sign, but can't find the footage.

The gap is at 3:50

  If the target audience is 6-10 year old kids who want mommy to buy them new shit every month, well ok. But last year was filled with amazing skating, funny shit, Forrest! (he even gave that dumb little dog attitude). This thing sucks but I feel like I'm hating on Power Rangers. It's not for old dudes who don't spend money on skateboards. I just don't understand how a simple idea for a show got to this point.

it feels like OIAM is stuck in an outdated reality tv formula, which is sad in ways i can barely comprehend. I guess the only thing keeping me watching is the anticipation for the episode where everyone realises the bullshit and calls it quits. So far the amount of skating shown hasn't given me any idea of who i want to win. but at least i know who the best artist is............... ::)

the producer/director was given full creative control this time.  last year, whitely had control.  this year, alex klein was given control.  he wanted to make it so it could be sold to a major network, etc.  everyone disagreed and fought with him on it--all the park skating, dumb challenges, etc--but he had a contract and would not back down. he wanted the show to be "accessible to people who didn't skate"; he wanted it to be able to be watched by fucking football players.  the judges, who i think ended up not being paid, were all so bummed and tried to change klein's mind at the end, but i guess they had signed contracts and couldn't get out of being in the final show.  billy rohan quit.  at the end, lou basically tried to fight klein.  so did some of the contestants.

eventually, the contestants said "fuck this" to the challenges and interviews and shit, and refused to do them.  another problem was the HD camera crew klein hired--they didn't skate, and didn't care about the kids.  so finally i just stole them all from the house of vans and left all the HD dudes behind.

so yeah.  it was a fucking nightmare.

Damn. Thanks for fully shedding the light. It's weird because I kicked it with Alex Klein a good bit when I used to go to SF a lot, a handful of years ago. He was just a normal skate dude. I guess what someone said about his head getting big after the surfing doc must be true. It's hard to imagine a real skateboader pushing for this end product., but...whatever.

Can't wait for your edit. You should just go ahead and put it up. The skating is all anyone wants to see, anyway.

That's kinda sick Lou tried to fight him over all this.

Last year was soo good. Why would one ever change it. I dont get it at all. Can someone from Slap pls comment on that?

As it's been said a few times, SLAP, as in the employees who run the site are bummed about how it turned out and had nothing to do with the goofy ideas.

I wasn't around for One in a Million, but here's my best guess as to how it got as wacky as it did:

Forrest pretty much made the show last year. Of course the skating was great, but OIAM wouldn't have gotten nearly as much attention if he hadn't been in it. Like Omarossa, Puck, The Situation, or whoever, the wacky characters are what attracts people to reality TV. And don't try and act like OIAM wasn't a reality show last year too, because it was. It was just really well done. But of course, you can't just go on a "new Forrest" search. So instead, the producer/director adds the elimination factor to replace Forrest as the source of drama.

Unfortunately, those ideas were all garbage (and as it's been said, they get even worse) and since the producer/director had been contractually given complete creative control, the new employees of SLAP (Whitely stepped down right before OIAM) couldn't do anything about it. Eliminations might have even worked if skating remained at the forefront of them, but who knows. We'll see how it turns out.

P.S. Team corndog for life.

Seems like a lot of people tend to forget that OIAM caught a lot of flack last year for the "reality TV" format that the show was done in. It was infinitely better than this year, but it was still a fairly regurgitated TV format. The big difference, though, was skating was still at the forefront. There was drama, and interviews, and all that, but the whole contest was about skateboarding. It was a reality show about skateboarding, not skateboarders on a reality show. The finger painting challenge had nothing to do with skateboarding, and could have made as much sense (none) on any other bullshit TV show.

They could get fat people to Crayola what they want to look like in the future, of Trump could have them make macaroni pictures that represent their newest business plan.

This has nothing to do with skateboarding.

I initially thought he was busting up weed when they had the first shot of his hands blurred, but it looks more like he's holding something with a logo they couldnt show

but I thought things would pick up.� Until I saw this:

eventually, the contestants said "fuck this" to the challenges and interviews and shit, and refused to do them.  another problem was the HD camera crew klein hired--they didn't skate, and didn't care about the kids.  so finally i just stole them all from the house of vans and left all the HD dudes behind.

so yeah.  it was a fucking nightmare.

I know that dude Tyler skates and I thought I saw him in the back with a dslr rig in one of the episodes, that sucks if he was down with all that silly shit.

Maybe, just maybe, Alex made the show so kooky that it forced everyone to blow it off in a scene of reality-show hyper-confrontation - complete with Lurker Lou engaging in fisticuffs - providing Alex with his desired mass-appeal drama gold.

They could have fired alex klein at any point before the guys quit/refused to participate. He also would have had to pitch the idea/premise to slap, so they aren't innocent, and likely knew exactly what was going to happen. How no one predicted this current backlash back during pre-production is surprising, and kind of pathetic.

I'm really starting to think this is a kind of genius move in order to show where skateboarding is going. I'm thinking all the shitty scenarios are made on purpose in order to see to what extent the skateboard community can accept the direction where the skateboarding is going.

It reminds me of PETA showing how they kill animals to show the cruelty of the food/fashion industry. I have the feeling it's a kind of artistic protest against what skateboarding is becoming, but it's really hard to find out wether it's made on purpose or not.

In addition to everything else that's hilarious, I find it funny that there are people on Slap who don't know who these judges are.

And also, the editing is pretty confusing in this sometimes, people just pop out of nowhere. Like that kid with the glasses and facial hair, I can't recall any footy of him in these 4 episodes, I think he was introduced in the first ep but then became invisible.

Yeah, I noticed that too. He does have a couple of random clips here and there e.g. fs180 switch nosemanual at the skatepark.
Being naive I told myself the invisible candidates were going to kill it later on. Unfortunately I was mistaken when skate footage was trumped by ridiculous colouring contests.

I swear to God, if one of the next challenges is to bake a dollar slice of pizza I will purchase the remaining stock of Alex Klein decks and burn them.

With slap in mind, I'm sure Alex thought a carpentry class with Popps would fly too.

way too much skating in this episode.

Exactly.

Last year was soo good. Why would one ever change it. I dont get it at all. Can someone from Slap pls comment on that?

the producer/director was given full creative control this time.  last year, whitely had control.  this year, alex klein was given control.  he wanted to make it so it could be sold to a major network, etc.  everyone disagreed and fought with him on it--all the park skating, dumb challenges, etc--but he had a contract and would not back down. he wanted the show to be "accessible to people who didn't skate"; he wanted it to be able to be watched by fucking football players.  the judges, who i think ended up not being paid, were all so bummed and tried to change klein's mind at the end, but i guess they had signed contracts and couldn't get out of being in the final show.  billy rohan quit.  at the end, lou basically tried to fight klein.  so did some of the contestants.

eventually, the contestants said "fuck this" to the challenges and interviews and shit, and refused to do them.  another problem was the HD camera crew klein hired--they didn't skate, and didn't care about the kids.  so finally i just stole them all from the house of vans and left all the HD dudes behind.

so yeah.  it was a fucking nightmare.

Well thanks for the info. Fingers crossed Slap can do OIAM 2013 like it should be.

You guys should put him into the next format. He is a character and he might be down. Think about it.

And the kids say they'll only accept his apology if they get to Bukake him (the of-age kids, of course).

dude didn't even make the original list of finalists, he was a bonus finalist or some shit like mango... but his video was terrible. objectively terrible in comparison with plenty of other finalists. he makes it somehow, then he introduces himself saying his friend was shot because he lives in a bad neighborhood. shit's sad of course, but hear me out, that's marketable as fuck (one of the most important things about skateboarding is being able to market yourself, remember?). on the ollie contest they have that dude talk about how mikey "can't go back to the hood" on the first elimination. he pretty much has the most screen time as far as i noticed. then mikey talks about his graphic being representative of his hard life and they play up his graphic and make him the winner when it honestly could've been anyone's game. the rules for judging seemed super arbitrary, one dude gets shit for putting his interests on it, but then they praise mikey for representing himself on the graphic? either mikey is predetermined to be the winner on some "pimp my ride"/rags to riches type shit, or everyone is afraid of/sorry for him.

Is it just me, or is Mikey a bit annoying?  He get's a little too excited whenever Cardiel shows up (I'm sure anybody would be, but he seems to take it a little far, no?).  He also kinda stole that gap to grind trick at the hubba, literally the moment the other kid landed it (look back at the video, as the kid lands it, mikey is already walking up behind the cameraman to tell him the trick he's gonna do).  But at the same time, I'm not surprised.  It's like the show is conditioning these kids to show off as much as they can.

They probably focus on ?mikey? because he is dumb and doesn't question what they have to do, and yea the marketing too. Look at him when it gets announced they have to draw their own boards, he gets excited.

But really he is in the 'reject weekend' video so I don't see how he could be a finalist. Adam simoni was the only guy I noticed wasn't in that video.

Yeah, even if that kid that did gap to 5-0 said he didn't care, that was still lame on hoodkid's part. Gap5-0kid patiently waited for his turn... then hoodkid just tries to one up him right after.

Post by: Ronald Wilson Reagan on February 25, 2012, 04:45:21 PM
You guys are being way to harsh on Mikey. The 5-0 thing was lame for sure, but he isn't really focusing on the hood thing that much, he mentioned it at the beginning, and he mentioned it once with the board thing. He could be throwing it in people's faces and talking about how he does everything a certain way because of where he's from and this and that (and plenty of people do), but he really doesn't.
And talk shit on his video all you want, he's done some sick shit so far in the contest, his noseblunt on those banks, the noseslide down the sketchy indoor set rail, the gap to 5-0 actually was really gnarly, albeit kind of a biter move. It's not like he's terry Kennedy who was really terrible for the first 5 or so years of his career but got by on his image.

I came on to this thread though to refute the argument that it can only get worse from the coloring contest. That shit was boring, useless, and got in the way of skating. If the later challenges get worse than this they will probably be more offensive, and will have more of a trainwreck feel to them.

Also, anybody think these guys are probably less boring than they are shown to be, but that everybody becomes boring when forced to answer boring and stupid questions.

You guys are being way to harsh on Mikey. The 5-0 thing was lame for sure, but he isn't really focusing on the hood thing that much, he mentioned it at the beginning, and he mentioned it once with the board thing. He could be throwing it in people's faces and talking about how he does everything a certain way because of where he's from and this and that (and plenty of people do), but he really doesn't.

Yeah, perhaps you're right.  It's not like I'm not open to the idea that he's a completely different person off the camera.  I guess you could say all my opinions about Mikey are only on what's shown on the videos.  I know people tend to vary in personality between real life and how they act in front of a camera.  I don't blame him, I just enjoy the parts where he talks lol

Yeah, I noticed that too. He does have a couple of random clips here and there e.g. fs180 switch nosemanual at the skatepark.
Being naive I told myself the invisible candidates were going to kill it later on. Unfortunately I was mistaken when skate footage was trumped by ridiculous colouring contests.

I swear to God, if one of the next challenges is to bake a dollar slice of pizza I will purchase the remaining stock of Alex Klein decks and burn them.

With slap in mind, I'm sure Alex thought a carpentry class with Popps would fly too.

"It's important to have a plan for your life after skateboarding, so in today's challenge ...."

I heard a dude got eliminated because when he presented his 10 year plan, he didn't want to have kids.

i'm not buying the alex klein trolling the industry thing. i feel like if that turns out to be the case, it wasn't preplanned, and it'll just be him using that as an excuse for failing. think about how they're promoting the shit out of mikey haywood:

dude didn't even make the original list of finalists, he was a bonus finalist or some shit like mango... but his video was terrible. objectively terrible in comparison with plenty of other finalists. he makes it somehow, then he introduces himself saying his friend was shot because he lives in a bad neighborhood. shit's sad of course, but hear me out, that's marketable as fuck (one of the most important things about skateboarding is being able to market yourself, remember?). on the ollie contest they have that dude talk about how mikey "can't go back to the hood" on the first elimination. he pretty much has the most screen time as far as i noticed. then mikey talks about his graphic being representative of his hard life and they play up his graphic and make him the winner when it honestly could've been anyone's game. the rules for judging seemed super arbitrary, one dude gets shit for putting his interests on it, but then they praise mikey for representing himself on the graphic? either mikey is predetermined to be the winner on some "pimp my ride"/rags to riches type shit, or everyone is afraid of/sorry for him.
My comment on it was sarcasm. Others, I am not so sure.

They probably focus on ?mikey? because he is dumb and doesn't question what they have to do, and yea the marketing too. Look at him when it gets announced they have to draw their own boards, he gets excited.


It would be so funny if all the contestants decide to just quit with the bullshit and one guy cluelessly stays on. Then the last 3 episodes would just be him doing all the challenges by himself.

makes the most sense to me. and if mikey hadn't been in the reject weekend video i would've bet money that he took the whole thing. alex klein is willing to shit all over a respected series to the extent that the first few episodes show, for the purpose of making it entertaining to non skaters and to sell it to a network; i wouldn't put it past him to just rig the whole show. especially when he knows that the eliminations he's making don't take into account one's actual talent in skateboarding. so he never has to worry about his predetermined choice not coming through during the day and getting eliminated for not being the weakest link. maybe the kid with the braces if he wasn't in the video, i think non skaters would be hyped on a random babyfaced kid becoming a pro.

telling that guy not to do the no grab benihana is bullshit! that trick looks fun as fuck. do what tricks you want

that's terrible.
Call me crazy, but at least this episode was rational. If they had nothing but street skating footage and every few episodes had a recap or even judging (based on footage)it might be cool, of course, last episode was coloring. They called them out on the right things, though apparently that was staged. its all shitty, but had hints of positivity.
Also, wasn't the point of the coloring contest that Mikey got immunity? Why even put him up there and tell him he can stay?

anyone else find it annoying how when the 'judges' were rattling off people's tricks, they didn't even show all the clips being mentioned, like mike's kickflip of 'that huge street gap'. even on an episode focussed on footage it was again hugely overshadowed by forced dialogue, ugh.

this left me feeling not so stoked on skateboarding.

a harsh reminder to the unspoken "rules" in skateboarding.

seems so distant from the simple act of going out and just crushing the streets with your homies, then being stoked on how far you progressed each other in terms of tricks done at spots. the whole thing wreaks of a not so friendly smell...

judges, prizes, having your board destroyed because you lose...

pass the board onto a kid who needs it instead of rendering it useless, be stoked that kid skated the ledge like nobody else and he immediately sparked the inspiration for another trick to go down it. i saw progression, not one upping.

but hey, who i am i to speak, just somebody pushing through the streets with no sense of direction other than which way rolls better.

this left me feeling not so stoked on skateboarding.

a harsh reminder to the unspoken "rules" in skateboarding.
...
pass the board onto a kid who needs it instead of rendering it useless, be stoked that kid skated the ledge like nobody else and he immediately sparked the inspiration for another trick to go down it. i saw progression, not one upping.
yea i feel you on the harsh reminder opinion; this whole thing reinforces all those weak unspoken rules.
the benihana's are cool, complaining about the kid's sketchy landings is soft, and mikey's 5-0 didn't seem like one-upping to me -- for them to criticise the kid for that just seems petty.

 I feel sorry for these guys, all the judges chewing them out about how "trainwreck makes" are not gonna cut it and just to "put in more work" garbage....

Why do a format like this? I don't get it, it has a really bad vibe, sorry...

All the guys, really. It seems like one of those things that you're kinda weary of while it's going on, then in hindsight it's like "What the fuck was I doing?". All the hosts and judges are legit dudes, that seemed like they all signed up for something that could have been really cool, and out of nowhere turned out way worse than any of them could have imagined. Keep in mind, even though it's been weeks for us watching it, it's only been two days for them. I think they're still in the "Is the shit for real?" stage, and haven't moved on to "Fuck this" yet. Cardiel obviously dropped out, and from what Mandible says, the rest do the same. Getting blindsided like that might take a few hours to set in.

Or maybe not. Who knows. I'd just like to think Cardiel, Steve, Lou, and the rest of those guys have a more vested interest in what skateboarding really is, and not dropping all that for the sake of a terrible reality show.

All you guys trying to give Klein the benefit of the doubt that this is some experiment are missing a big part of it- even if it is, he's still a prick. To ruin a franchise and exploit these kids who are skating their asses off and humiliating themselves to prove some contrived point of a master's thesis is the epitome of selfishness. Those kids aren't toys to be manipulated.
Also, some are minors and doing experiments which cause trauma or are targeted towards manipulating minors will not get IRB approval, so its not anyway.

It's funny how fast it went downhill. A lot of the people that came out of OIAM in the past, are now currently people I love to watch, Randy Ploesser, Jake Donnelly and a few others.

Couldn't agree more with a follow-up Klein interview. I have some mutual friends with Alex Conn, Klein is behind a lot of the stupidity, reality-tv b/s and there needs to be some accountability for ruining something that I personally HELD in high regard as far as internet content goes.

You guys seriously don't get it? The kid went out of his way to skate it a different way, and as soon as he does, somebody else happens to think of it too and do a slghtly better variation of it? That's not coincidence, that's biting. If you think you can go to spots and one up dudes immediately after they do tricks and that people will think you are cool you're an idiot. If I see a dude putting it out for the glory I let him have it and keep doing my own thing, I don't think "I'm going to do it better!" There is etiquette in skateboarding and that was genuinely bad etiquette. You are supposed to ask first at the least. Now, having people step forward and answer for the decisions made while skating and judging them like that is lame, but really, if they are going to do it, thats as legitimate of a thing to call out as any.

yeah I wouldn't call a kickflip down some stairs as thinking outside the box.  When you go to a spot and you put some thought into what you want to do, and land something nobody else is doing, you don't deserve to be out-done by a fellow skateboarder.

I guess that's where you draw the line.  You could say there's a certain level of respect that's due to someone who does their own thing.  Take this hypothetical example:  What if the moment Duane peters did his full loop, someone comes up behind him and does it switch and steals his shine?  That's pretty disrespectful if you ask me.  I'm not saying Josh's trick is as revolutionary as the loop, but he put the effort into thinking of his trick, what did Mikey do?  He stole an idea, and that's like...a violation of intellectual property rights and shit...hah

If I see a dude putting it out for the glory I let him have it and keep doing my own thing, I don't think "I'm going to do it better!" There is etiquette in skateboarding and that was genuinely bad etiquette. You are supposed to ask first at the least. Now, having people step forward and answer for the decisions made while skating and judging them like that is lame, but really, if they are going to do it, thats as legitimate of a thing to call out as any.

Especially because Josh seemed pretty excited that he thought to skate it like that. Everyone else was doing tricks on it and he said something like he knew he could keep up with those guys, so he thought he would try something different. Then after battling the gap to 50-50, Mikey announces he's going to try a gap to 5-0 seems really shitty to me. Fuck, I would have been fine with him even asking josh if he could try the gap to 50-50 with him, like trade tries, but to wait for him to land it and then try to one up him seems sketchy. And to everyone saying that this isn't a big deal--Nick Merlino admitted for doing this exact shot and snaking people got him dropped from Baker flow right before he got added as am.

"that shit would never fly"?

oh... damn. so, what about when you're on tour with a team going spot to spot and, one dude does something better then the other dude. is that an immediate fist fight? idiot. it's not like the kid did it to spite him, he was inspired by a new idea & added to it. just like everything. doesn't take away from the other dude having an original idea.
That shit killed Oiam for me this year. The ollie contest was eh, the coloring was strange but that right there was just fucking stupid. So if a friend and I go to a spot and he battles with a kickflip and finally lands it and I land switch flip that's me just being an asshole and he'll never forgive me? get the fuck out of here with that shit.

yeah I wouldn't call a kickflip down some stairs as thinking outside the box.� When you go to a spot and you put some thought into what you want to do, and land something nobody else is doing, you don't deserve to be out-done by a fellow skateboarder.

I guess that's where you draw the line.� You could say there's a certain level of respect that's due to someone who does their own thing.� Take this hypothetical example:� What if the moment Duane peters did his full loop, someone comes up behind him and does it switch and steals his shine?� That's pretty disrespectful if you ask me.� I'm not saying Josh's trick is as revolutionary as the loop, but he put the effort into thinking of his trick, what did Mikey do?� He stole an idea, and that's like...a violation of intellectual property rights and shit...hah
ok that was a shitty comparison. But isn't this a competition? I know that sounds shitty but the point of the series is kind of to show what you got. I'm sure that goofy looking kid that got one upped wasn't bumming too hard on it. And what can you expect from a competition where they just had a high ollie contest?

I guess so, but judging skateboarding is all subjective, so even if you're "better" doesn't necessarily mean everyone is going to like you.  Originality is pretty important, and maybe just as important as how hard the trick is.  Some tricks are fair game because skateboarding is progressing at such a fast pace that it's hard to do something completely original, but in Mikey's case, it looks highly unoriginal to steal an idea during the same skate session.  I know explaining this "rule" may sound kinda lame but that's the way I see it.  I know it's a competition and all, but it is a skate competition, and those unspoken rules come with the territory.

The fact is Mikey would have never skated it like that without that other kid doing it first.  I think the gap 5-0 was out of line, he straight copied and one upped him. You dont do that kind of shit.  Think of your own trick to try. Competition or not it speaks badly for your character, in my opinion.

All you guys trying to give Klein the benefit of the doubt that this is some experiment are missing a big part of it- even if it is, he's still a prick. To ruin a franchise and exploit these kids who are skating their asses off and humiliating themselves to prove some contrived point of a master's thesis is the epitome of selfishness. Those kids aren't toys to be manipulated.
Also, some are minors and doing experiments which cause trauma or are targeted towards manipulating minors will not get IRB approval, so its not anyway.

I was actually going to say this exact same thing.

And I concur. A Jenkem interview with Alex Klein would be interesting.

We reached out to Klein recently.. Still waiting to hear back. If anyone is friends with him tell him to get in touch with us. ([email protected])

Fine. It was all a set up anyway so its moot. The key thing is that poor Mikey was made to look like a chump so the producers (aka Alex Klein) would get more drama, which is really stupid

i might just be too stoned or too stupid but, your wording & sentance selections really just confused me. you go back & forth in between points. ever spot is created by someone skating it a certain way. there's a first to everything, therfore an 'original'. the dude from lbc may have done a trick that's considered "better" then what the first kid did but, the first kid made the original idea & followed it through. the concept that someone did a harder trick on the same spot afterward never should take away from the original trick/skateboarder. like i said it didn't seem like it was attempt at spiting the first dude, just a kid getting inspired to do a trick on a new obstacle. you guys should be hyped on that.

That shit killed Oiam for me this year. The ollie contest was eh, the coloring was strange but that right there was just fucking stupid. So if a friend and I go to a spot and he battles with a kickflip and finally lands it and I land switch flip that's me just being an asshole and he'll never forgive me? get the fuck out of here with that shit.
You guys seriously don't get it? The kid went out of his way to skate it a different way, and as soon as he does, somebody else happens to think of it too and do a slghtly better variation of it? That's not coincidence, that's biting. If you think you can go to spots and one up dudes immediately after they do tricks and that people will think you are cool you're an idiot. If I see a dude putting it out for the glory I let him have it and keep doing my own thing, I don't think "I'm going to do it better!" There is etiquette in skateboarding and that was genuinely bad etiquette. You are supposed to ask first at the least. Now, having people step forward and answer for the decisions made while skating and judging them like that is lame, but really, if they are going to do it, thats as legitimate of a thing to call out as any.

yeah I wouldn't call a kickflip down some stairs as thinking outside the box.? When you go to a spot and you put some thought into what you want to do, and land something nobody else is doing, you don't deserve to be out-done by a fellow skateboarder.

I guess that's where you draw the line.? You could say there's a certain level of respect that's due to someone who does their own thing.? Take this hypothetical example:? What if the moment Duane peters did his full loop, someone comes up behind him and does it switch and steals his shine?? That's pretty disrespectful if you ask me.? I'm not saying Josh's trick is as revolutionary as the loop, but he put the effort into thinking of his trick, what did Mikey do?? He stole an idea, and that's like...a violation of intellectual property rights and shit...hah
ok that was a shitty comparison. But isn't this a competition? I know that sounds shitty but the point of the series is kind of to show what you got. I'm sure that goofy looking kid that got one upped wasn't bumming too hard on it. And what can you expect from a competition where they just had a high ollie contest?
Even in contests you are supposed to do your own thing. ? Its stupid to dwell on though, he was cool about it in the end
a contest is a contest. it's not like he was snaking turns or disrespectful to anyone like you said. & maybe he didn't skate it while the other kid did so it wouldn't mess with him or bum him out. the kids didn't seem to care at all. i think they just really had to add drama wherever possible. looking at skateboarding like that is totally negative. everything progresses eventually.
nah dude, gipper's on point with this one, that shit is only cool in like the maloof money cup or the xgames or some shit. this may be a contest but they're essentially just going out and having a regular session at a spot, it wasn't a best trick competition. the proper etiquette is to ask the dude if he minds that you try it when you go for it that soon after he's done it, to which no one who isn't bobby puleo would object. it's a formality but it shows that you aren't doing it for the purpose of shitting on the other dude, you just wanna try the trick. but actually, it would be funny if klein, in arranging that, did it for the purpose of teaching all the kids watching that that shit isn't cool, cause most kids really don't know and do that shit all the time at skate parks like it ain't no thang. but it's a going overboard to say "let the dude live" as if no one is allowed to skate something the way you did it if you're the first to think of it.

i can't lie though, that gap to 5-0 was tight as hell, i ain't mad at it.
i might just be too stoned or too stupid but, your wording & sentance selections really just confused me. you go back & forth in between points. ever spot is created by someone skating it a certain way. there's a first to everything, therfore an 'original'. the dude from lbc may have done a trick that's considered "better" then what the first kid did but, the first kid made the original idea & followed it through. the concept that someone did a harder trick on the same spot afterward never should take away from the original trick/skateboarder. like i said it didn't seem like it was attempt at spiting the first dude, just a kid getting inspired to do a trick on a new obstacle. you guys should be hyped on that.
obv too stoned.

i'm pretty sure i've read every reply in this thread and i haven't seen anyone bring up how awkward it is to watch dean's attempts at being funny, considering he's not funny at all. he kills it, but goddamn is he not funny. dude comes across as trying soooo hard to be funny, i have to assume that the people around him have to consistently give him awkward, forced chuckles just to keep him from going off in a corner to cry into his knees with his hood on.

Yeah, I feel second hand embarrassment for him at those moments.
And I have absolutely no fuckin clue what he is talking about half the time.

i actually don't think he's even trying to be funny, he's just one weird motherfucker.  i was definitely scratching my head.  nice, genuine dude though, kills it for sure.
I'm so down for Dean. That kid definitely just comes off as weird to me. Between the end of that one episode where he's telling random stories about him and his friends while he's getting stitched up and shit, and his general approach towards skating, both reckless and filled with weird tricks make him come off as genuinely eccentric. The judges seem completely weirded out by him and don't know how to say that they think he is weird as fuck but that somehow it works. Its great. I love people like that.
If anybody comes off as trying to be funny its probably Josh, but I like him anyway. I like all the kids, I think part of it is the fact that I feel for these genuine kids who are all legitimately good skaters being put through some phony bullshit that everybody hates by some fake ass motherfuckers, and are handling it well despite the fact that there's no way they could have expected this... can't wait until they walk off though.

Agreed on pretty much all accounts.


And, real talk, at the risk of sounding too gay, it's cool hanging out with people like Dean - always in a good mood, light-hearted, free-spirited, etc. People that give off good vibes are good to be around. And I wish I was more like that sometimes, instead of being so darn jaded and pessimistic

And before the usual 30 people say how whack this episode was.. You're all hooked on it so clearly Klein did a good job.  Any viewer or participant of this Mountain Dew commercial should know better to expect some boring, unscripted, core skateboarding program.  It's supposed to be this stupid because they want everyone to watch it, not just old slap dudes wanting to see pure street skating.

I bet the whole "skaters get fed up and abandon contest" was part of the plan too.  With that said, I'm glad to enjoy this entertainment for what it's worth.

Wackness aside, this one had skating and while it wasn't the most exciting shit ever, barrel jumping is actually really crazy.  My friends and I tried it years ago after seeing all that shit Alva did.  It's the weirdest feeling of knowing you should be able to do something, but feeling incredibly sketchy the whole time.  Just like those kids said- just a few is really hard.

We're laughing at him, not with him. If you think the only people who think watching coloring contests are stupid know how to kickflip you are a moron. This thing is a car wreck and its fun to laugh at what a stupid asshole Klein is, no more, no less. If you want to say he's a genius because he exploited kids and ruined his reputation for some minor entertainment, fine, but there are less socially and personally damaging ways to do that. He still failed.

You guys are being way to harsh on Mikey. The 5-0 thing was lame for sure, but he isn't really focusing on the hood thing that much, he mentioned it at the beginning, and he mentioned it once with the board thing. He could be throwing it in people's faces and talking about how he does everything a certain way because of where he's from and this and that (and plenty of people do), but he really doesn't.
And talk shit on his video all you want, he's done some sick shit so far in the contest, his noseblunt on those banks, the noseslide down the sketchy indoor set rail, the gap to 5-0 actually was really gnarly, albeit kind of a biter move. It's not like he's terry Kennedy who was really terrible for the first 5 or so years of his career but got by on his image.

I came on to this thread though to refute the argument that it can only get worse from the coloring contest. That shit was boring, useless, and got in the way of skating. If the later challenges get worse than this they will probably be more offensive, and will have more of a trainwreck feel to them.

Also, anybody think these guys are probably less boring than they are shown to be, but that everybody becomes boring when forced to answer boring and stupid questions.

There's something weird goin' on in the drawing challenge. Obviously none of the judges have art history degrees, but Steve Rod has worked in advertising and 5Boro is always looking good, Lou puts paint on shoes and walks on things, you know he's up in dem art shows, look at that beard...Can't speak for Rodney's aesthetic sensibilities but he sometimes matches his hat and shoes which should be an automatic DQ...

Bottom line: All of that artwork was fucking unbelievably terrible and Mikey's was amongst the worst. He is clearly, whether on his own or at the behest of the producer, emphasizing the "hood-ness" that he embodies, which is a cheap trick at best. "Cops chasing people..." Cool, dude. Good job. The concept of the challenge is dumb as fuck anyway and it should not have been conducted in the first place, but shit, man, kids can't even write their own names legibly in 2011?

The fact that you are trying to engage with me on the quality of the drawings in the contest is fucking pathetic. Who gives a shit whose drawing was the best? The kid mentions it in his intro video, then drew a picture of the corner he lived on, and that's it over like 5 episodes, meaning he has mentioned it less than once per episode, whoa man, he's milking it  ::)
 Whose drawing was the best? I could give a shit. That's exactly why that challenge was stupid. It was boring to watch and who gives a fuck who won? It's not like I was thinking "John's graphic is the best! He BETTER win!!!" and then was heartbroken to see some far worse graphic win. I was just pissed because I already lost for sitting through the episode.

Yeah, but if the "worst skater" won immunity then someone who didn't "deserve it" as much would get the boot, so in a way being a weak barrel jumper could get you unfairly booted.

I feel focusing the board is simply not enough, they should really feel like they lost. I hope they at least take back the shoes and gear  and send them home buck naked.

Next year they could leave the eliminations unannounced and kill them in their sleep one by one.

the skatepark filming sessions might be a good training for the actual "winner" of this thing, since half of the job of being pro  is producing shitty webclips in TFs vulgo skateparks.
and as i mentioned above: somebody call kerry getz or at least  buy lurker lou a sledge hammer.

i really don't see how everyone didn't get a ton of a footage. they were skating that skatepark pretty much all day, right? i've literally never gone to a skatepark for a full day session and walked away having landed just a handful of tricks. there were multiple filmers too, so it's not like they were competing super heavy for one filmer's time. tyler got a clip of a bs flip on a hip too, so there clearly wasn't much discretion, if any, on what was considered film-worthy.

i'm kinda pissed just thinking about how dudes are flying out from california to ny to skate in a contest where they'll get hooked up properly if they win, and all they have to do is get clips at a fucking skatepark to stay, and multiple dudes manage to not come through. you can do any and every trick you can do in the street at a skatepark, much easier. even taking away the contest aspect of it, what skater who isn't injured just sits around at a skatepark all day? they're all mostly kids too, so they have no excuse for not having the energy. i still think kennedy should've gone home over mikey, but both of those dudes should be ashamed of themselves.

Oh God, this is so depressing and boring watching a bunch of fully grown men bully some ugly children without there even being any skating.

I imagine most slap members have came across the pornographic website www.backroomcastingcouch.com (http://www.backroomcastingcouch.com) - I find the vibe of that and the vibe of the judges eerily similar

The only enjoyable aspect is Cocksuker Lou being unable to focus the boards each week

Yeah, what the fuck was with the attitude about him without the board? They acted like he left his skateboard at home before his 60 second run. I didn't see any skating go down.

I liked Mikey, he seemed like a chill kid, especially if he came from the situation that they are claiming. Kids from the hood can develop a real rough exterior real quickly, and he still came off as positive and chill.

I feel like they judged the skaters based on random selection of tricks instead of the footage they produced throughout the whole day.  I mean, all they remembered Alex Conn doing was a switch smith? which was part of a line?  And why did they say all dean had was the merlin flip or whatever?  I'm pretty sure he had that one crazy rail dancing trick.  confused...

Wouldn't you say that too? Especially after all of the negative feedback these episodes have received? I mean, if Lurker Lou and everyone else got pissed at Alex Klein during the filming of the episodes, that tells you they weren't in on the joke and were really upset about their role in OIAM and how it was playing out. That doesn't seem like parody to me.

I would TOTALLY say that, but and this is a HUGE but- if I was a local legend like Lou is and if I had an popular core skate team like Rodriguez does I would be pretty careful to...... wait for it...... pay attention to how I MARKET MYSELF.

I am a big fan of 5boro and Lou is a pretty badass skater, but there is no way in hell I would have let myself be on the American Idol of skateboarding.  Focusing loser's boards?  Lame ass immunity challenges?  It's either a really shitty inside joke OR they realized halfway through that what they were a part of was lame.  I don't know.  I still have a lot of respect for Lou and Rodriguez because, to me, their cool shit outweighs this, but.... I really hope they address it in some way.

Its still not funny even if it was. The argument is invalid before you even get into facts, because if they played those kids like that, it would be super lame. Also, hasn't the fake reality show thing been done to death anyway? There was that Joe Millionaire show or something where they claimed he was a millionaire even though he was poor as fuck to fuck with gold diggers, and I'm pretty sure I've seen prank shows do the fake reality show audtion/pilot episodes before, on a more straight level, America's most smartest model on VH1 openly mocked the contestants, who either didn't get it or just didn't give a fuck. So it wouldn't be funny, and to take a legit series like that and fuck it up, all while fucking with a genuinely nice, hard skating group of kids isn't cool anyway. So even if it was fake, it would be lame. Its not, and its still lame.

And to whoever was asking why they didn't skate the park super hard- its what, day 3? They've been skating hard that entire time, including a late night day one,  are sleeping on the floor of a warehouse and are hoping to keep it going for another several days. In the past they eliminated based on multiple days of footage or stupid shit like high ollie contests, and its a shitty little indoor park, why the fuck would they press it too much? The whole contest is retarded. Use your goddamned brain.

haha anyone with the talent those dudes have could at least manage to produce some clips at the park for the sake of having come through with footage. you're an idiot to think that they would have to skate hard to get clips at a skatepark. especially since dudes like tyler and adam weren't even considered for elimination and the only examples of clips they got were on a hip, surely doing tricks that they did to warm up at their local skatepark every day. and you can't argue that the dudes were over the contest cause mikey looked super bummed to be eliminated. which means that he was still intending to win. which means that he has no excuse for being eliminated because he didn't come through with clips in a skatepark. that kennedy kid was smiling the whole time, but i'm pretty sure that's a nervous tick.

true, but i never denied that mikey should've been the one to stay. you're right though, mikey doesn't really apply to my post since he was apparently going for quality shit and only managed to come up with two things, whereas kennedy apparently wasn't going for quality shit and still only managed to come up with "two ollies and a wallride." mikey definitely wasn't being lazy, but the thing is, mikey says in the end that he assumed it was him who would be eliminated because he didn't produce much, so you can't even argue that he thought he had done enough to stay. so if he expected himself to go home with the effort he produced, was he just over the contest and intentionally trying to be eliminated? then why the long face, mikey? if he knew that they were going to judge him based on how much he produced then i don't see why he would spend so much time on one trick unless he just didn't care about the contest anymore. it's possible that he realized that he blew it after it was all said and done though, so whatever.

good thing steve dropped join or die during these episodes or he would be in deeper shit. and mikey hayHOOD was probably given the most coverage/interview time out of all of them and seemed to actually give a shit about the contest. but at this point who really cares about anything that happens, this whole contest has been a joke from the first episode.

Why wouldn't they mention that guy who did the crazy fast/long bank ride? I don't hate the judges, they are obviously not good at talking and are being put in a pressure situation, which makes them phrase things awkwardly. Like the fucking movie rick mccrank was in, skaters are not good at much on camera besides skating(a few exceptions obviously)

It was funny how mikey got shit for not skating cuz you gotta get ahead or something, when they gave him shit for one upping the day before. I can't stand listening to him talk though, glad he's gone.

The fact that you've thought 5boro is legit up to this point just proves that this guy knows exactly what his doing. Marketing is the most important thing in skateboarding, you know? That, and having lines in your sponsor me tape. Oh yeah, and taking your board with you to the elimination, it's a skateboarding competition after all.

Those are the 3 most important things in skateboarding. Oh, and crayon skills... and skating smarter instead of harder.... Come to think about it, I don't think I've actually known anything about skateboarding before this show. It has really changed my life.

Two weeks ago I was at a bar by myself waiting to go meet up with some friends after they got off work. They had a trivia night, so I participated, and fucking WON (solo). The last question, which I could wager as many of my already accumulated points as I wanted, was "In Nickelodeons legends of the hidden temple, What was the name of the stone face narrator?"

OLMEC MOTHERFUCKER.

I actually did pretty well in most of the trivia, but I really don't think I would have won without the mega wager on the ender question. Thank you, childhood.

I've lived in Louisiana for the past 5 years and I lived in Fayetteville, NC for 3 as well.  That's not that crazy of an accent, the tone in his voice is pretty emotionless so I think he sounds pretty monotone.

(Fig. 1)

All you have to do is get a handful of beard.  That is an unbelievable amount of pain.  For you ladyfaces- pull out an eyebrow or a nosehair and imagine that all over your face.  While Lou is definitely going for the righteous sea captain look, he's totally left his face open for a beardal assault.  I once defeated a hobo outside a tattoo shop with a beardgrab to hot coffee to the face.

New Yorkers are so fucking lame. So the dude who can't even focus a fucking board is going to kick my ass? I'm shaking in my boots. Nobody forced this dude to be part of this. Its funny, because before this, all the NY/east coast posters made predictions about how much more hardcore it would be, and about how nobody would be able to skate the spots at all. So far nobody has had trouble skating the city and the "underground" dudes are just fame whoring the shit out of themselves.

well ale and lager are different things. comparing an ale (guinness) to a lager (coors) is an apples and oranges debate.

 if the argument is higher alcohol content makes you more of a man than start drinking everclear/moonshine/151/high calibrated spirits and die uber fast. real cool.

you can't seriously be trying to call someone out by calling a guinness an ale...seriously dude come on, tell me your kidding.

wasn't calling the dude out, just stating that they are different and yes guinness is a stout which is an ale. we're not talking quantum physics, friends. but if you wanna fightaboutit...

buuuuurned...

I actually didn't think I was watching OIAM at first and had to look at the title of the video again due to the amount of skating.  Then it got to the stupid challenge.  The skating was great though.  Lines in a pretty crowded area.

Yeah I thought something was wrong with my monitor but no, pre-gripped with blue grip tape.... must be a CCS thing. I liked that the one guy focus it, even if it's mighty wasteful of him.

Dean is my favorite for sure, even if his calfs look scary to me. I'd have to see an edit of all his footage at the end to decide if his my favorite to win the competition, but he's my favorite in general anyways.

"So you guys excited?!"
*no sounds made, kids eyes dart around as they avoid eye contact.
I like Josh Kasnicka more and more every episode. Gnarly, creative, and generally fun to watch.

Who gives a shit what Lurker Lou's side is on why he sold out and acted like a total prick the entire time, its not about WHY he did it, its the fact that he did. He's a pathetic east coast fame whore. Its not about him being mean, or a good or bad skater, or good or bad at focusing decks, he's just a loser who is desperate to be a famous skateboarder and was willing to say and do totally lame things either because he was lame and thought doing those things were cool, or because he was lame and was willing to make a complete fucking ass of himself on this show for either fame or money. Either way, the shit talking is properly justified no matter what he says.
 You wanted to be famous Lurker Lou?
Guess what?
 Everybody knows you as One in a Million douchebag and will probably remember you as that for years.
Nice job of making the east coast look like it is full of shit people who will do anything for a buck.
I'm not hating, I'm just being truthful, as "Lurker" Lou claims he likes to be.

The beer conversation going on here is epicly retarded. What are you guys homeless or 14? Do you really need to be sure that a beer you have has the highest alcohol content possible? They do make this shit called liquor you know, it usually is about 40% alcohol, and all you gotta drink are a couple gulps and you'll be wasted.
If you want this whole argument put simply- any beer will get you drunk eventually, so who gives a fuck what alcohol percentage it has, and Coors light tastes like dirty water and puts money into the pocket of hardcore right wing assholes
I just wanted to point this out as people talk shit on the weed smoking threads all the time, but the conversations are far less stupid.

I'm not trying to sucked into whatever bullshit internet argument you're trying to spark, but what the fuck does any of that have to do with the East Coast? So you think he's an asshole... so he's an East Coast asshole?

Name another region of the world that constantly says they deserve more credit than they get and that they are actually the best? The amount of east coast shit talking I saw before this contest about how nobody was going to be able to skate any of the spots because the east coast is so rough was ridiculous. The amount of shit talking I see from east coasters who claim that the west is bullshit because the spots are so soft is ridiculous. You know damn well if the calfornia kids were refusing to skate the spots the east coast  losers would talk hella shit. It didn't turn out like that though, did it?
Are all east coast people like this? No.
Do you see this type of obnoxious arrogance anywhere else in the world? Also NO.

I agree with you up to there. I expect my beer to have a certain level of alcohol. I make my own beer and I find it unacceptable, as in I've fucked up, if its under 4.5%. I feel that beer brewed to a certain style should have a level of alcohol to it.

When have I told people that the west coast is sooooo much harder than the east? When have I said I only care about skaters from the west coast? When have I claimed that if people from the east came out west they couldn't do shit? That's all you hear from east coast kids. Do you want me to dig up the original thread about this OIAM and how it would be in NYC? Every kid from the east coast said the kids wouldn't be able to do shit, but they have, so now you are all getting defensive and trying to blame others for your stupid predictions.


I am arrogant as fuck, no doubt, but when I said "this type of arrogance" I meant it. I don't have that special NYC chip-on-the-shoulder arrogance, the one that demands pity and respect simultaneously, this sort of uncle rico "I could have been the greatest but was unfairly passed over" mentality which is what epitomizes every one of the regular judges on this show.
Here's the harsh truth: People who live in NYC aren't any harder than people who live anywhere else.
Sure, there are arrogant people on the west coast, in the south, the midwest, and even in other countries (there are other countries...right?) but there is a special east coast arrogance
And y'all gotta be crazy if you think east coasters don't hate on anywhere else btw.

Yeah, where are you getting your experiences from, Gip? Slap, Ricky Oyola's Epicly Later'd and an interview with Bobby Puleo? Having spent a quarter of my life skateboarding in New York and a quarter of my life skating in L.A., people on the west coast seem to complain a lot more about their situation that east coasters. How there is so much traffic, no place to skate during the week, every spot is "blown out". I was at Stoner Park a couple days ago and a group of men, not some 15 or 16 years old, but men in the mid to late 20's were complaining that is was overcast and that is was "too cold for a t-shirt but too hot for a sweatshirt". Also at Stoner that day was Chris Roberts... I know his "shit skateboarders say" video was a joke... but it was also funny because it was true.

I'm not saying people on the east coast don't complain, but the most common shit I saw when watching video or looking at a magazine was closer to "fuck, that spot looks so sick! I wish we had that" and not "fuck those dudes and their perfects spots. They couldn't do shit out here"

One area we can agree on though is Lurker Lou and how fucking stupid he is coming off.

As for you guys saying I haven't been to the east coast, I go there regularly. Can an of you explain why I am wrong? Why is it the east coast is the only region in the U.S. that has special teams that only put on east coasters? Why is it a region that is filled with marble and smoothly paved sidewalks, but always bitches about how "rough" the spots are. The spots in the midwest are 1000 times rougher, but nobody says a damned thing about it, just east coasters. Then when people from away from the coast skate there, they kill it

do any of you kids think Steve, Cardiel or Lou had any idea how fucking stupid this years OIAM was going to be when they were offered the job? NOPE. they signed a contract and are now being pulled through the mud. you keep acting like they're hyped to be there...watch everybody's body language (pause) and tell me they're not over this whole thing. Lou tries to fight the fucking producer and everyone walks off the show by the end, so if you think these guys dont agree with the collective groans about how shitty this whole debacle turned out to be, youre fuckin trippin.

Gip, is there some part of this messageboard where people from the east coast are regularly talking about this, or is this a lumped together argument that you keep dredging up from years back? I don't see anybody on here talking about the east coast like it's some third world country except for you man. A "region filled with marble and smoothly paved sidewalks" is Washington D.C. You can just say the city names man (or in this case, district).

I don't really know of any teams that are east coast exclusive as you say, as if it's some sort of bias against good skaters in the west. I think what you're confusing, is that the skate industry is centered in California, so naturally, the bigger brands are in California. The bigger brands can afford to put talent on their teams, and fly that talent to and fro as needed. Whereas the brands located in the east coast, are primarily regional brands, and can only afford to retain riders who are based in the same cities and/or would have cheaper transportation coasts to get them where they need to go. It's not like 5boro is in anyway biased against non-east skaters. They've had Japanese and Brazilian skaters on their team for years. I think your only company that's even close to what you're picturing is Traffic - and even then, they aren't biased, they're small budgeted. Do you have a specific company in mind that legit has a sore spot about skaters that aren't from the "east coast"?

Sorry bud, I love you and I'll always be there for you, but why you gotta do us like this homie?  :'(

Really? D.C. is the only place with smooth pavement and marble? Is Manhattan the midwest now?
Also, I am referring back to the original "OIAM is going to be in NYC!" thread where half the posts were about how west coast kids were going to come to New York and sit on their asses half the time because they couldn't skate the super rough east coast spots, and also the real world outside of the message board.
As for why I have to do you like that? Shit man, finals then spring break. I'm sitting in a room all day and occasionally saying "eyes on your own papers only please." I'm bored and feel like boiling some blood, so I figured it would be fun to see if anybody who was claiming NYC was too raw for people from the west coast still want to defend that point. Guess not.

Maybe you should address that to the people who said it, not to people who never shared that viewpoint in the first place. I'm proud of the east, but half of my skate family lives in SF. I love the Bay. It's my favorite place to visit. But I never had a sense of "fuck you west coast guy" til you said "east coast loosers.".

lol, it just seems weird to me that someone that goes to such great lengths to prove their intellect on a skate forum would be content with being a teacher....of course there's the possibility that you are not as smart as think, and you simply could not have made it in more intellectually demanding professions such as medicine, engineering, or....law! so you went into teaching and rationalize it to yourself with bullshit statements like "there is nothing more rewarding than teaching youth"

did i go into law for the money? yeah, I did, and I'm sure as shit not ashamed of that. But my sister went into medicine, and not for the money. she moved to africa and is working with Medicins sans frontiers..just to show you an example of what people who are actually intelligent, and also want rewarding jobs can do... what im trying to say is, if you were half as smart as you think you are, you would not have wasted away your potential teaching...

No, who are you trying to kid? You obviously think you are smart, it does not matter if you haven't explicitly stated it. I base that on not only the tone of your posts, but on the often ridiculous length of your posts.

And what arguments have I lost exactly? We are not arguing anything here. That is the difference between me and you, I've put effort where it counts, and that has resulted in me basically going to university for free, and having a guaranteed job at a law firm upon graduation. You have put all your effort into meaningless "arguments" on the internet, and that is why you are only a teacher, and I will be a lawyer, making substantially more money than you. You can say that teaching is the greatest job in the world all you want, but I have yet to meet someone who had the grades to get into law school (or medicine, engineering...whatever) who turned those options down to pursue a career in teaching.

Anyways, I have to go offline now, and chances are I won't be interested in this thing here that you think constitutes an argument come tomorrow morning. So just remember, winning arguments on the internet won't make you more successful or intelligent than me, no matter how hard you try to believe it. Just like "losing" this "argument" by leaving won't make me any less of a successful soon-to-be lawyer :)

Instead of immunity for being able to do some task that is cool (high ollie, quick board set up) but very minuscule on the path of becoming a pro skateboarder. They should instead offer a large product give away (im assuming that they only got free product that one time) for being able to do these tasks. That way it still makes the contest seem fair and it makes the guys there feel like they actual got something out of they poorly orchestrated contest. Because we all know that board companies aren't looking to hook someone up because they have good narration skills, their looking for someone with good footage, which they failed to show until the 9th episode.

Being from the East Coast and having skated the Gulf Coast (MS) pretty hard, I can whole heatedly say that the South does dwarf us on hard shit to skate. You guys have even less than us, worse ground, and insane humidity. Only up side you guys got is relatively mild winters. PS: I don't understand why there arn't more DIY spots on the Gulf Coast. After Katrina it seems like there are an endless supply of foundation spots in the form of leveled houses.

Yeah, they've shown us the def poetry jam reading of it every year at professional development meetings at the beginning of the year at both schools I've worked at. At first I thought it was cool, but after being forced to hear it so many times in rooms full of teachers I kind of find it cheesy.

A student boasting about the job he's going to have is pretty funny actually.

Especially in Law. This is an old article from a quick google job, but things haven't changed much since then:
http://www.professorbainbridge.com/professorbainbridgecom/2009/09/too-many-law-schools-and-too-many-lawyers.html (http://www.professorbainbridge.com/professorbainbridgecom/2009/09/too-many-law-schools-and-too-many-lawyers.html)

Law students DEFINITELY don't automatically get jobs. Not even close. If the kid is at year 2 and doesn't realize it he's probably fucked. At this point he should be working desperately to find a summer clerkship that MIGHT lead to a job if he kills it. Of course, a lot of defense lawyers do clerkships with the public defender's office, which is not really the road to riches. If he's just sitting there thinking about all the money he is "guaranteed" in a year he's probably not in the right mindset and is fucked.

Even the "raw" street skating was lame, and I'm definately better as poor as I am than being any of those judges. It would be cool if the whole thing was intended to show kids that it is funnier to skate by/for yourself than trying to get sponsored through "marketing yourself, but it's nothing but a massive fail.

my mom lives in the gulf coast region, has for the past ten years, and on my annual visits the areas are vastly different every time. i think the lack of DIY spots are because there aren't areas like being under a bridge or anything like that. everything is flat and far apart from each other. there aren't corners you can tuck something away under, you know? the areas are either pretty populated, or totally empty. there's also so much constant expansion and development that for things to be built in a practical, accessible area, they would disappear really quickly.

The thing is, those spots are everywhere. I live in LA and raw spots like that exist out here too, but on the same token, NYC has plenty of amazing perfect ground spots. One thing to point out is that in the OIAM's in SF, they barely took them to any hill spots at all. Thats how these things work.

There have been times I would be showing cali people around and half of them would kill it on "urban spots" and the other half would be like "not for me" or "I dont got shit for this"

The thing is, those spots are everywhere. I live in LA and raw spots like that exist out here too, but on the same token, NYC has plenty of amazing perfect ground spots. One thing to point out is that in the OIAM's in SF, they barely took them to any hill spots at all. Thats how these things work.

Yeah  but it's the ratio of good to bad spots.

Ratio? NYC has more nice ledge spots than you could skate in a month. Go to San Francisco and try to skate a smooth plaza there. There aren't any.  NYC is not rough like people claim, but it is an amazing skate city.

all the others get their board focused by mr.sledgehammer, and sent home on their own money for staying in that shitty game for too long.

I highly doubt they're going to show the rebellion, or Lou trying to fight the producer. Why would they? They don't want to make themselves look bad. I'm guessing the trailer for next week is more about them getting fed up with the drunk guys antics, rather than the stupid challenges and everything else. It was edited for maximum drama and speculation.
Who knows how they'll end the whole thing, but they're going to try and make themselves look as good as possible.

Talked to Kennedy about this today, basically saying he was over the contest while he was in it. He hated having to be pressured to skate every spot and said he was genuinely bummed on skating after the contest and was bummed on what the contest was trying to make skating into. He said he was relieved being eliminated and not staying in. Thus being said, Kennedy is the man.

On a side note, I was in SF this past weekend, and was right by the flowershop, that hill John Fitzgerald rolled down last year is fucked beyond belief. All of the shit they did into it was pretty gnarly. I wouldn't be surprised if he did the whole hill because he got carried away with the speed right away.
I also saw the hill Kennedy halfcab flipped into again, and stand by my word on the gnarliness.

I like how the judges had to hint how much they didn't like the show rather than just saying it.
Then the production company probably got all scared so they just dropped all the challenges and shit.  
Alex giving the camera guy the bird was pretty good hahah

looks like next week the guys are gonna start shitting on the camera crew (judging by how finucan was trying to skate away from a camera guy near the end).  I'm still interested in seeing how the production company would handle the end...

On another note, imagine the conversation with Matt when he came back
"hey man I haven't seen you in a long time, what have you been up to?"
"Oh, I've been out skating, having fun, not sleeping in a skatepark.  How about you guys?"

Not one of those judges could say they would have done a single on of those challenges to jumpstart their careers. For them to say they expected these kids to do whatever makes the sponsors of the show happy is the definition of a sellout. Not backing any of these brands ever again. Except mountain dew, that shit is just to extreme to live without.

Billy rohan says "the kids just wanted to skate" as though it was a bad thing. I'm so confused in a contest that has been openly about marketing at times that the judges don't realise how much better the kids look in all of this than anyone else.

I don't understand why the judges were critical of the kids - it makes them look awful, why ar you defending RIDE/mountain dew/ alex klein etc when they are the ones that ruined the show and it was only the contestants that tried to save it by refusing to deliver empty pizza boxes.

Most of them looked bummed.  Contractual obligations, probably.  Although I have to agree that Rohan didn't seem as understanding as the rest of the judges

i love they show the quote saying the crew was falling apart then the clip of jon saying "what the fuck, man?"  too bad jon was yelling at the fucking HD filmers who didn't skate who were sneaking all up in their faces.

I just assumed that's what he meant haha

contracts are a fucking bitch

I don't know if you can disclose any specific information, but how bad are the consequences if a judge decides to go against the contract?

Post by: shit_for_brains on April 11, 2012, 12:41:54 PM
so did they abandon the format because they knew they had a rebellion looming? the sponsors just decided to do damage control?

OIAM was such a good thing the past few years, and they really murdered it this time.

I'm kind of surprised Rohan was the one that dogged the kids so much. Wasn't he the first judge to quit based on how lame it was? Then he comes back and immediately sides with the producers/sponsors and calls the kids babies for not wanting to do unrelated challenges?

Stoked on Alex Conn, though. Team Corndog.

mother of fuck... I srsly didnt expect Cardiel to say such things. "You have to do some shit you dont want to" then dont go pro or tell your sponsors to fuck off. I think that's something wrong with skating nowadays, pros being down for stupid shit if it means money. Fuck that shit. Lou's reaction was lame too but, whatever... but Billy Rohan... come on dude "I guess we were asking way too much from the kids". What a fucking joke. Like, for real, this shit is as lame as it can get. Someone said on one of the first pages "its like a car crash; the worse, the more you look at it" and well, I tip off my hat to that gentleman: fucking nailed it.

Finucan and Conn are tight, though.

Underneath it all, I kind of feel like Cardiel and Lou were stoked on the fact that these kids were kind of calling OIAM out on their bullshit. Like, they weren't afraid to say that even though they were grateful for this opportunity, they weren't going to blindly follow the idiocy anymore. Or maybe I just hope that's how Cardiel and everyone else felt.

This episode was hillarious. All the judges trying to play the kids off as brats or something, they obviously recorded that part before the public reception, as nobody in the fucking world is believes these kids are brats after seeing old OIAM's and all the shit these kids had to put up with between the fucking idiot who made this and the smug and arrogant nobody judges (aside from Cairo Foster, none of them are even close to the model of "successful pro").

Oh, and their excuse that one kid was having a bad time and it spread is fucking ridiculous. Having worked with kids and had group complaints before, the proper way to interpret it was that EVERYBODY hated it, and nobody felt comfortable saying so until the bravest kid in the bunch spoke up, then the rest of them followed suit. I guarantee nobody had their mind changed about the contest, they just needed somebody to confirm that it was bullshit so they could feel comfortable admitting they thought that too.


What was in the "lost day?" Was it skating or drama that embarassed the producer?

Pizza delivery challenge? What the fuck is that? I understand goofy/gimmicky challenges with a "fun" angle or funny one, but fucking dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb. Here's an idea for the next: drop Mountain Dew, scale back production, and make a more DIY scenario based on things motherfuckers like. This shit is over produced trash, and it's fucking weak, and makes the whole OIAM contest a total joke (an unfunny one and unwatchable one at that). The people behind this could make tits look bad, and everyone loves tits.

I don't blame the kids for not digging any of this hokey shit in comparison to past OIAM's.

...and what's all this business talk with OIAM, you're not guaranteed a pro spot on a team if you win (along with the trivialities and worries of a professional) , or even am status... so it is completely irrelevant. Wanna learn the skate business? Then get in it at any level, fuckkkkkk. (shop owner/employee, ask a non full of shit pro, groupie, company owner/investor, etc.)

Every time you dink's (those running it) let a nice sum of money and a fabulous major corporate contract into skateboarding it dies a little inside, every fucking time (regardless of dreams, ambitions, and potential output that said money could "create"), and makes the shit look so fucking ridiculous. How could you look at it as anything more than a superficial circle jerk? How can you "create" under a binding contract with obligations and pointless red tape? Just asking, not assuming.

Fuck this shit.

I don't think it's Mountain Dew's fault. OIAM has been sponsored by Mountain Dew for a few years now and it's been fine. It was Alex Klein's ego and the producer's/SLAP's desire to top the exposure that Forrest's presence got them last year.

Sounds like the appropriate response to me...

They could still use it to their advantage, they're getting exposure, meeting some important people in the industry. it goes beyond just being on the show, but i can understand why they would be frustrated, i imagine it seems like the purpose of being there isnt what it should be

i was thinking of how bummed they must be to use their hard earned footage for something like this, thinking it was going to be anything remotely like it was last year. that's YEARS of those dudes' lives that they worked so hard for, to have fucking lurker lou tell them to skate around the block with an empty pizza box.  miserable.

They probably are gonna spread the rest of the skating out to other episodes. there are no more challenges or eliminations, which made up 2 of every 3 episodes. Even apart from the lameness of the show, the production itself is terrible. Billy rohan and cardiel there at the beginning of the show, then gone for so long, then back with no explanation. Also the pizza challenge looked fucking awful, were they just skating around the block?didn't explain shit. Also it was obvious finucan was talking to the cameraman at the end, not to another contestant. Alex klein and the editors must be confident that everyone watching is a fucking moron if they are editing obvious lie's like that.

I feel like Dean was in his own world and didn't even realize the rebellion going on around him.

it's possible he hates what he's doing just as much as the next guy, but is just better at acting like he doesn't (?)

he's just sort of a born entertainer i think, he just acts.

I'm kind of surprised Rohan was the one that dogged the kids so much. Wasn't he the first judge to quit based on how lame it was? Then he comes back and immediately sides with the producers/sponsors and calls the kids babies for not wanting to do unrelated challenges?

Stoked on Alex Conn, though. Team Corndog.



i think that might actually have been filmed the first day, billy was bummed and dipped after that first episode, i think that might have been prerecorded then.

I can't believe those faggots! These were probably the guys who didn't try in gym either. Pussies! All of them! Billy Rohan gets it, and so does John Cardiel. If a respected pro told me to race around the block so I could get hooked up with skate gear and all the dew I could pound I would do it. I would win too. I might enter next year if its as awesome and competitive as it was this year. Other years were boring, there was no reason for all of the episodes until they started kicking pussies off. This year they got it.
They kicked that chump Matt off on day one! Awesome! That was excitement. Learn how to ollie BRO. Now because those faggots whined he came back. This is why kids can't play dodgeball in gym class anymore. Everything was so awesome until these faggots decided they wouldn't play.

Like all the shittiest things in skateboaring, OIAM comes from the mind of a scientologist...
Alex Klein became friends with Berra not long after he quit skating and joined him at the 'church.'

I know this because I'm zenu

I'm halfway through this and I just want to say FUCK THIS. They really don't need to be ripping these kids a new asshole like they are. Jon Fitzgerald? The fuck are you talking about dude, when you were on OIAM there weren't retarded challenges and bullshit fabricated drama (maybe a little with forrest, but whatever). They're getting people to speak out against these kids, when everyone who has been watching this knows how fucking dumb it is. I doubt the main concern was even the cameras in the faces, they probably edited out all the shit about how gai the challenges were and how much the judges sucked, and how lurker lou kept touching their wedding tackle in their sleep. again FUCK THIS and fuck Alex Klien.

I love how lou said just shut up and skate when in the last episode they said the exact opposite. This is dumb, anyone with dignity will avoid entering next year.

Fuck these sociopaths. It's one thing to have stupid challenges, make up drama, and put these kids through hell... But it adds insult to injury when you try to turn this whole thing on the victims, instead of admitting you screwed things up, learning from the experience, and just trying to do better next year. It's totally disgusting that these people had the audacity to be like "Well, this is what you signed up for. I don't know why you're complaining". No, they didn't sign up for this you retards. Look at the OIAMs from previous years, that's what they signed up for.

I kinda lost respect for ISUCK too. This entire thing was bullshit and there's no point in trying to defend it.
