Wow that part about the deleted Bag of Suck part is SUCH a bummer... Why the hell would anyone actually go ahead and do that though? Could have just stashed it away in a hard drive or something for a while and said it was "deleted". Fuck Ty Evans

I had an awesome day of playing in a water park with my son and daughter with pretty damned perfect Hawaii weather while my wife finished reading a book in the shade.  We had a great lunch of Korean barbeque with some bubble tea for dessert.  This is how we celebrated the fourth of July and I even managed to sneak in some skateboarding.

This interview was the cherry on top of a really great day.  Thank you.

Oh, and fuck you Ty Evans.

I don't see why MJ would say it was deleted if it hadn't been.  He seemed honest/bummed about the whole ordeal.
Title: Re: MJ Chrome Ball interview
Post by: oyolar on July 05, 2013, 07:40:32 AM
I hope Evs kept it on a hidden jump drive or external hard drive or something and now that the cat's out of the bag, he'll be like, "Surprise!  Here's an MJ Tiltmode part!"

And for everyone asking about why they listened to Ty, it sounded like he was making such a big deal out of the situation, not dropping it, and basically being a dick, that it wasn't worth the headache anymore.  He probably wouldn't stop bringing it up and MJ and Evs just got tired of dealing with the situation.  At the time, it probably didn't dawn on Marc how much that part meant to him and he just wanted it to be over-especially considering that he was spending so much time working with Ty and everybody on the Lakai video and stil had a lot of time ahead of him.
Title: Re: MJ Chrome Ball interview
Post by: The Ghost of Lenny Kirk on July 05, 2013, 07:46:11 AM
Well MJ also said that during the time he was a full blown alcoholic so maybe the conversations didnt end in the best way and maybe eversole wasnt trying to piss his friend off or get him in trouble. Just a guess.  It really sucks that it wasnt in the video because bag of suck is hands down one of the best videos of the 2000s, just a tight crew of dudes that no one besides a few people really believed in. Hemmorrhaging that many big names and still coming out with that video? Damn.

mj and his son did get last trick in the friends section so at least theres that.

This interview was perfect, it filled in a lot of fairly large gaps in his epicly laterd.

im bummed that company didnt pan out but that probably goes back to no one thinking the dudes that were left on enjoi could hang. In a lot of ways maybe the way it turned out was for the best because all those guys had something to prove and mj had a lot to deal with. Still though, it wouldve been nice if rick and company had a little more faith in those dudes because enjoi is full of rippers. At least theyre all still good friends and the door is always open for other stuff. As a fan of all these dudes its like seeing a happy ending.

Also MJs pretty sweet part is perfection, it has all the best elements of his fully flared opus pared down to perfection with a song that wraps it all up very very nicely. Its easily the best part in the whole video.

im glad he proved everything youve ever heard about ty evans and then some. I guess rick trusted him a little too much.

Post by: JB on July 05, 2013, 08:46:02 AM
MJ has been my favorite skater for years, and getting to read that interview was really great. one of the best interviews ive ever read about skating. MJ to me seems like a really smart guy, and probably a genuine stand up dude now that hes cleaned up, and to me hes a real inspiration. im really excited to see what hes doing with the back forty.

and before this, i didnt have any hate for ty. i knew he was a bit over dramatic with his editing, but i was cool with it. the skaters and the tricks in his videos were still gnarly, and thats all i really cared about. but knowing that he not only robbed us of what we wanted to see in pretty sweet, but made matt evs delete what was no doubt an awesome MJ part makes me want to kick his ass. fuck ty evans. dude should be banned from skating forever. im not a mean person, and i never say hateful things to people in public, but i wont hesitate to tell him how big of a dick bag he is if i ever see him. that bummed me out so much. i really hope he knows how badly he fucked up with that move.

Post by: zuma on July 05, 2013, 08:52:53 AM
that also reminded me of some salabanzi interview where he said his best and favorite part of his career is somewhere on a hard drive at flip and they wouldn t even give it to him just to see it. only for top $

so much dirt i'm still digging.



love that CBI and Jenkem are breaking the real news.  Won't be long till he flies to his own coop.




the bit about the old dudes having full parts and not using it due to it not being filmed the same is a bummer.  It's one thing that Real switched the footage quality up in Since Day One, which totally sucked to watch, but they're not these guys.  it wouldn't matter what quality we saw Rick McCrank in, it would have been better than what we got with Pretty Sweet.

These past 3 CBI's have been insanely good. It's interesting to me how personal each dude is willing to get. Agree or disagree, love or hate, it's pretty fucking killer to have something like that so in depth. A lot of pros aren't willing to open up like that.

Great work all around.

EDIT: Again, the deleted part...just doesn't make sense. No one, and I mean no one, could tell a pro that carries the weight MJ carries, to delete something. I'm not buying that. And while MJ is a legend type of pro I do always get something a little dark from his interviews. He seems like a dude that could snap at virtually any time.

I have to agree with you to a degree. MJ definitely has some demons and a darkside, but I also would not say that he is a liar. He was pretty open about his alcoholism, and Ty is definitely a douche.

Post by: TMKF on July 05, 2013, 05:22:49 PM
Amazing interview! Kind of a bummer all you guys are taking from it is a deleted video part. I also doubt it was deleted, I'm sure Eversole has it somewhere. Ty is probably embarrassed at the whole thing now but the fully flared hype was big, im sure he was under alot of pressure, no excuse but think about it they weren't even releasing ads or photos with their best shit for years leading up to it. Also if you look back at Fully Flared I think a couple clips are in there, you can tell because they are dorkier "tilt mode" clips and not filmed as well in comparison. Its a shame because I think that part would've built more hype honestly but maybe Ty didnt see it that way. Eitherway MJ is the best! Sick interview, had food poisoning today and this is the only thing that made me feel a little better.

Trying to keep a skate career core forever is how you end up with Phelps. Professional progression is a good thing.

And people not involved can judge all they want but it was a stressful time for everyone. New ground was broken. Everyone involved would have probably done things differently.

i got pretty rattled when he told that story about the video part.

Ty does have a history with footage of skaters he's working with going to other places. Wasn't there a conflict with AVE and Dill when they were doing the AWS and Transworld video?

And wasn't there a interview with cory kennedy saying after that beware of sasquatch, ty told him to stop putting footage into web and bro shit?

Glad to know he's forever gone now

You've obviously got a solid understanding of how the working world operates. Follow the Phelps model and you too can look 60 telling teenagers to bring it don't sing it.

Sometimes life ends up better when your career life ventures outside of skateboarding. Being paid well to travel, film, and edit is a good gig regardless of what you're filming.

Is there a legal issue involved? I don't get it. Why would Marc and Matt delete the shit? I would've told Ty to fuck himself. I would think that whatever filmer actually filmed it would own the footage and Ty would have no control over what gets put out where. Am I wrong?

Trying to keep a skate career core forever is how you end up with Phelps. Professional progression is a good thing.

And people not involved can judge all they want but it was a stressful time for everyone. New ground was broken. Everyone involved would have probably done things differently.

Phelps rules. You shouldn't have tossed that part Ty, even if some of the shit was going to be used for FF. WHO FUCKING CARES.

I am sure that there is more to the story, everyone has their take.

Good luck with the snowmobiles.

You've obviously got a solid understanding of how the working world operates. Follow the Phelps model and you too can look 60 telling teenagers to bring it don't sing it.

Sometimes life ends up better when your career life ventures outside of skateboarding. Being paid well to travel, film, and edit is a good gig regardless of what you're filming.
Phelps has dedicated his life to skating, has seen the all time best, runs what is by far the best magazine (which is destroying everyone else online as well), and will be here after shit talkers have long gone.  Following the Phelps model and you too can stay in skating your whole life whether it is dead or not.  Disappear filmer clown.

I understand what you're saying about Phelps but skateboarding's a small industry and there's only one Thrasher.

And to be honest the only people who think working in the skateboarding industry is ideal are people who have never worked in it. A lot of people get pigeonholed in the industry because that's all they know. If you're a pro from your late teens until your early 30s you've missed out on the window  where career development happens for most people.

This is so true. It's an industry where most people put a lot of talent and energy into stuff with very little reward.

I'll give Thrasher their due for surviving in print but they're the outlier. Digital media is the new norm.

It's not complicated. Some of those clips ended up in his FF part--the whole thing wasn't just deleted. FF was a gigantic investment of time and money it was important to stay focused on making that project the best it could be.

I'm a full time sommelier and I have a very healthy life outside of the skate bubble. This is on top of just opening a nonprofit indoor skatepark and managing a skate shop so don't fucking lecture me.
I would never want to be Phelps, I'm too open minded to pull it off even if I wanted too. That being said he is an awesome dude (if you've ever met him) and a fucking idiot (if you've every met him). Pretty much standard for humans, he's just more extreme. And it's nice having him around to call out bullshit. All he cares about is skateboarding you can't hate on that.
I was serious about good luck, I'm glad you are moving on to other ventures. I don't wish ill fate on anyone. Skating is making a move away from the polished 1080 clean super produced stuff and I'm all for it. That stuff has its place, you are good at it, go make some money.

He later on was egging on these super young black kids at Potrero to fight. I guess they were all locals, maybe it was cool, whatever. Seeing a 50 yearold man encouraging 10 yearolds to fight in any situation is pretty whack IMO.

Say what you want about Phelps but you would never hear him say "editing a magazine is good regardless of if its a skate mag or not."  He's down for skating and that's it.  Not that I don't hear where Ty's coming from, and if he's happier doing other shit than good for him.  But don't get down on Phelps for not "progressing" out of skateboarding.

Fuck you Ty. You can say whatever the hell you want to justify your history of creating stress for skaters, but to me its all bullshit.

How the fuck do you not understand that skateboarding should never, ever, EVER be stressful for the people involved?

I blame a lot the current state of the industry on what you did in Fully Flared. Creating pressure and some grand expectations you felt the skaters should live up to. I understand companies/filmers want to push skateboarding and their own limits, but you just come off as a bully.

I've read a million fucking interviews with Pros and almost all of them agree that skating and video parts were best when things just happened naturally. Pro filmers weren't involved, there were no "trick lists", no hype surrounding videos, and friends were filming shit as it happened. Every fucking skater will tell you this.

The thing you will NEVER realize Ty is that most core skaters, the people you should care about, don't give two shits about the quality of footage or tricks. We just want to see our favorite skaters skating. Period.

You can justify changing the video industry for the worse all day, but from all the interviews I've read it seems like you created completely unrealistic expectations for Girl/Chocolate. MJ isn't the only one who said it. BA's recent interview basically spelled that out for us.

Okay, obviously Fully Flared wasn't THE video that set up the high pressure/expectations we see now, but it certainly didn't help.

Maybe MJ is overly sensitive, but I guarantee he wasn't the only one to go borderline crazy during FF.

If the skaters wan't to put enormous pressure on themselves and their video part, that's fine.

It's not easy putting films together, and shit gets heated. But you gotta realise that without the skaters, you have no video. Your attitude towards it all kind of shows that your work is about you, not the skating. That's sad, and it will hurt your career in the long run.

In short - you need skaters, they don't need you.

It's not easy putting films together, and shit gets heated. But you gotta realise that without the skaters, you have no video. Your attitude towards it all kind of shows that your work is about you, not the skating. That's sad, and it will hurt your career in the long run.

In short - you need skaters, they don't need you.

Ok, thats just wrong, if people really didnt need editors everyone wouldve loved extremely sorry. You need both for something good to happen. Theres nothing wrong with having a "vision" for what a video should look like because all the best videos usually have a solid concept but its another thing to not follow through with your vision and not make all that misery worth it for everybody involved.

The act of skateboarding for fun doesn't require filmers or editors but pros who want to make a living sure do. Companies to want to generate revenue so they can pay their pros sure do. When you look at the industry as a whole who is more in demand editors or pro skaters?

And everyone who was upset about that part that was forced into deletion, how deleted really was it?

@QUIT SINNIN there's tons of pressure put on pros to perform from TMs, owners, filmers but honestly most of it is internal. Some dudes react like MJ and some react like Pops. High expectations can produce some really monumental stuff. Look at Ternasky (rip).

I agree with that completely but you shouldn't feel like your spot on the team/place in skateboarding is on on the line if you don't perform, which over the years and interviews I've read about FF it comes off that way.

since bigwigs read this shit they should realize that the fun aspect of skateboarding (tiltmode, chomp on this) will generate just as much sales as the jock contest scene... there is 2 sides to this shit the fun side and the contest/money side and the longboard shit is dominating the fun side...

Chomp and Tiltmode vids are good no doubt but you're delusional if you think they generate anything near the sales of vids like FF and Pretty Sweet.

It's sort of startling how you don't see the bigger picture as an artist (art director here).  If you are catering only to what is NOW (middle school mall demo) and unable to anticipate/help steer towards what is NEXT, you're a hack.  Anyone can do that.  Also, if you care more about selling to your largest sales demographic without satisfying your core fanbase (lifers), you're a hack.  You are supposed to be able to carry the vibe over from the inspirational projects (Chomp etc) to the mass audience.  There have been numerous posts from you suggesting that your priorities as a professional creative are out of line with where they should be.

And why is that? Theres really no excuse for editting the video that way. It effects the perception of the brand when you do something like that and over time that effects who wants to ride for the company and who wants to buy the stuff they make. I dont have a problem with intense video productions if thats what a company is about but leaving out whole chunks of higher quality footage? Lame lens decisions? Not really making a quality video with the raw material available? Rubbing people the wrong way with no payoff at the end? Thats all on you.

thems the niggas we wanted to see shinin

there is nothing like watching a part from a dude you grew up with, watching his new shit and still getting inspired

like the dudes older than 24 aint bought mad boards for mad yrs and supported that brand

we aint shit now huh

we was buyin yall shit before youtube gotdammit

we MADE YALL

most of the kids that skate now will quit in 5 yrs tops

The worst thing about this isn't that you pulled such a dick move, the worst thing is that you put yourself and your 'vision' ahead of the talent actually doing the work. That you grudgingly cherry-picked the best parts makes it worse.

It's not easy putting films together, and shit gets heated. But you gotta realise that without the skaters, you have no video. Your attitude towards it all kind of shows that your work is about you, not the skating. That's sad, and it will hurt your career in the long run.

Theres nothing wrong with having a "vision" for what a video should look like because all the best videos usually have a solid concept but its another thing to not follow through with your vision and not make all that misery worth it for everybody involved.

You're right to a point, but putting a filmer/editor ahead of the skaters is putting the cart in front of the horse. Ty's ego getting in the way of MJ's hard work is twisted and the reaction of Carroll really says a lot.

I like that Ty has raised the bar of skate filming, it just seems that it's come at a pretty high cost. Put it this way - would you rather the world had Ty's filming or MJ's skating? The answer is pretty easy to me and I'm a film nerd who loves seeing HD skating.

I actually give Ty a lot of credit for coming on here and facing his critics.

That being said, some of the shit you're saying is whack as hell. Based on your logic you must think Bieber is a great artist because he sells a lot of records and is appealing to the "young demographic that sells product"? You can talk all you want about sales records that PS and FF set, but I think I speak for a lot of us when I say the world wants another Tilt Mode or Chomp video more than they want another FF. And I buy a lot of product, so my opinion must mean something to you.

You seem to be contradicting/ignoring a lot of what you said in your Jenkem interview a few months back.

To suggest that us "core" older dudes are irrelevant in the skateboarding market is a joke. If this is true, how has Anti-Hero managed to stay in business for so long? Funny, I don't remember them putting out a big-budget video to help sell product?

Would I like to see a balls-to-the-wall Stranger or Gerwer part, or a team video? Absofuckinglutely, but I buy Anti-Hero boards because they do everything on their own terms. Not because some big shot filmmaker sticks an expensive camera in their face and says "This is the future of skateboarding. Deal with it!" And those dudes are loyal to a fault.

Was Mouse marketed toward the middle school mall demographic? Or did Rickoo & Spike just set out to make the best quality, most tasteful video possible, according to their aesthetic judgement, without much concern for how "the market" would respond?

Of course that was a different era--simpler, more naive. There's so much more at stake now. The rich need to get richer.

It's not exactly a statement from Merril Lynch, but if anything these are likely to be lowball estimates.

Not to mention, once you have dough, it opens up all kinds of other revenue streams--stocks & bonds, mutuals & index funds, real estate flippage, etc. He may not have $40m in the bank but when you consider the equity value of brands in which he's a stakeholder, I'd be shocked if he was worth under $45m.

I suppose you think because Rick Howard can still switch tre he's just "one of us" and you don't like to think of him as that guy with a portfolio worth gazillions, but I assure you, he's that guy. Or would you care to correct me (and celebritynetworth.com) by chiming in with your own estimation of his net worth?

As it happens, I've rubbed shoulders with literally hundreds of millionaires, even a few billionaires, during a career about which you know absolutely zero (and presume far too much), and when you have a successful business of any type, it doesn't take much to put your net worth above the million mark. And after you've made your first million, the second one's much easier. Play your cards right (as Rickoo clearly has), moving millions of units over the years in dozens of countries around the world, and it's actually not that big a deal to achieve a net worth in the $50m range.

Now since you've made something of a second career out of a Slap Pal and it's clearly skewing your sense of reality to the point where you've become obstinately opinionated about matters of which you have seemingly little comprehension, I'll encourage the thread to return to the topic by leaving you with this tidbit of advice:

I feel like Ty has been straight up with everyone here. He admits freely that he's not us. We are motivated by our love of skating - nothing else.

Ty's not solely motivated by that. He's interested in making films. He's focused on his career. He's trying to find a way to stay creatively engaged and make a living. He made some pretty fucking good skate vids along the way, and as it turns out, MJ's footy wasn't deleted after all, so...

"Thanks for the vids & good luck bro," seems like a more appropriate response than "fuck Ty," but maybe I'm just missing something.

Agreed.

Right after I read the interview I had a feeling that the MJ/TY delete story wasn't accurate. Half the interview MJ seems to be mentioning he was out of mind on booze during FF. How could Ty have the pull to make other filmers delete their footage and why would Carroll and Howard even let any of this happen under their roof? I think some of you are giving MJ a little to much credit since he is one of the best to ever step foot on a skateboard.

I can agree on Pretty Sweet to a degree but regardless of the reasons why people hate Fully Flared, I still think it is one of the best videos of our time and I doubt it could have been that way unless Ty pushed all those guys to do it. Probably something that won't be appreciated till all those guys are well at the end of their careers.

@QUIT SINNIN there's tons of pressure put on pros to perform from TMs, owners, filmers but honestly most of it is internal. Some dudes react like MJ and some react like Pops. High expectations can produce some really monumental stuff. Look at Ternasky (rip).

I agree with that completely but you shouldn't feel like your spot on the team/place in skateboarding is on on the line if you don't perform, which over the years and interviews I've read about FF it comes off that way.
Yeah 'cause dudes are getting kicked off left and right from Girl/Choc for not producing.

Whether or not the part is groundbreaking, it should have been released in some capacity if that is what MJ intended and Rickk was okay with it.  Even if the part is not on par with his FF part I'm sure it would have been a joy to watch.  He has one of my favorite styles in skateboarding and even a mediocre part from him would be more coveted to me than a full fledged part from other top tier pros.  If anything, that would leave me wanting more which would have been delivered by FF.

Also, I feel as if credence should be given to the skateboarder in the production of video parts.  So if he made the tricks, he should be able to dictate how they are used as after all the video part should be a reflection of the skater themselves, not the filmer (although I understand that it is a filmer's job to have input into the direction of the whole project).  Weren't there rumors of MJ having 23 minutes of footage to choose from???

say what you will about Ty but he helped shape the past 10+ years of skate videos and created some of the most iconic videos around. the fully flared/pretty sweet hate is all about personal taste but generally speaking this is the direction their videos have had for a while and it worked great for the companies. times are changing and people have to adapt whether or not we personally like every decision.

you keep nit-picking at my posts as though it will make you seem better, you did not let an MJ part get put in a video against his will, therefore you're a douchebag. the fact you're too stubborn to admit it was a dick-move just strengthens you're douchebag-ness. I'm definately buying MJ's full story over yours anyway. MJ does not have a history of leaving shit out, whereas if you watch that abortion of a music video you call "pretty sweet", you left out a fuckload lolololol.

1. Trying to make MJ delete a part. (How "good" Ty thinks the part is remains irrelevant. It's a fucking MJ part. Also, that it survived was clearly a
fluke so he deserves the shit he's getting for this.)
2. Leaving that Gino Seaport line on the cutting room floor.

3. Cutting the full parts of the OGs from PS.

4. His evolution from raw skate vids to Hollywood fluff.



Regardless, he made some of the best skate videos of the last decade or so. (Pre Fully Flared)
Maybe not as severe as what's listed above, but I also really hated how Alvarez's part was edited, kinda ruined what could have been an incredible part from an incredible skater..

Ty will not be forgotten easily, but he will be remembered with something to his name. Pretty Sweet may not be appreciated here, but there are a ton of other non-forum-lurking skateboarders who really dig it.
He did create some of the greatest videos in Skateboarding, watch Modus Operandi and those who remember it, remember it.

But the angry internet dude side of me is fucking pissed off at the fact that the stopped a Marc Johnson "fun part" from ever being seen. Ty, I'm sure that the level that MJ was skating at in the lost part is nowhere near what is in Fully Flared or Pretty Sweet, but we dont give a double flying fuck about that. You see, we, as skateboarders and fans of skateboarding videos, don't get to constantly hang out with the best of best of the industry on a daily basis. We dont get to film them doing the craziest trick taking 7+ hours to land. For you, thats probably what you think we'll enjoy. But we want to see a humble side to MJ's skateboarding also, and thats the part that you dont seem to understand. Even if its badly filmed or the tricks are only curbstalls or parking block grinds, dork tricks and dumb stuff, we'd love to see it.

If some clips were used - cool. But at the end of the day, there are those of us who would really appreciate viewing the content in its original edit.

That's fair.  I had to refresh my memory on who he was.  You can find him on a scooter here:
Scott Pazelt 411 #38 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwdzdXVZzEI#)

Damn looked so much better back in the day when people didn't yo out their tailwhips.

Ty is calling out Commercial D.

Its like Dave Mayhew making fun of Scott Pazelt.

Care to 'splain' this reference? 

one was my hero ("the storm" times...) before i actually saw his pro shoe and got my 2nd skatevideo (compared to ty who made some of my favourite skatevideos including fully flared and then kooked it out totally), the other one was a guy i never took seriously. maybe its more of a personal reference. i somehow feel bad comparing scott and commercialD though.

Ugh. When I think of "shitty late 90s / early 00s style", I think of Scott Pazelt. He was a friend of mine's favorite skater back in the day. That friend is now a scientologist. I think that says a lot.


say what you will about Ty but he helped shape the past 10+ years of skate videos and created some of the most iconic videos around. the fully flared/pretty sweet hate is all about personal taste but generally speaking this is the direction their videos have had for a while and it worked great for the companies. times are changing and people have to adapt whether or not we personally like every decision.

Many people have made great art at one time and then kooked it out. Modus is still my favorite vid of all time. Deleting MJ footage is unforgivable.

The worst part is that it seems Ty himself doesn't even like the videos he's making now. Go back a few pages and watch that Epicly Later'd...he talks about the stress and craziness of FF, how Chomp was so much more fun and they should make another video like that. So no one -- not the skaters, not the Pals, not Ty himself -- no one is happy with where videos went. Except the general non-skateboarding public, and 13-yr-olds. PROGRESS.

Best post in this thread. Pretty much sums it up for me.

It was a stressful time with a lot of shit clouding everyone's judgement. Everyone involved with FF probably has a list of things they'd go back and do differently if they could.

With MJ's other part it was just a timing thing with the release of FF. In hindsight it wasn't a big deal but at the time it felt like it.

I'm happy the part's being released.

Good to hear. Hindsight is a hell of a thing.

Now all that's out of the way, how you enjoying the Black Magic camera?

This reads so funny to a queen like me because gay dudes use "FF" as shorthand for fist fucking.

"Everyone involved with fist fucking probably has a list of things they'd go back and do differently if they could."

Modus will not be forgotten and truth is Ty made some good vids but pretty sweet bummed me out.
Every super tech bullshit flip in/out trick looked so desperate and gross.  I miss the days of 5 trick lines and homies filming.  This shit is trying to turn into a sport and if that is fully accomplished watch the shit disappear.  The whole game is fucked up.  It's supposed to be about pushing yourself not having somebody else push you.  MJ is the shit Tiltmode all day
