Title: Ride Channel, WTF
Post by: fourwheelwonder on February 12, 2014, 06:30:20 AM
What's with the Ride Channel...
no more Weekend Buzz? No more Free Lunches?
Fully Torqued ending, Skateline gone to Thrasher.
What's happening?

Maybe they are pulling a Tyler Bledsoe and they'll comeback with the same features and a FULL INTERVIEW WITH GINO, online parts from Heath, Pat Chanitta and Free Lunches with people that really care about their profession and love that is skateboarding...

It's all about money. Web content has become serious business, make no mistake - you publish your content where you'll be paid the most. I'm not sure where the RIDE Channel income comes from, but if it is purely from Youtube ads, then (for example) Thrasher can offer more (direct dealing with advertisers).

I like Ride Channel a lot. Didn't think much of it at first but became a nice competitor to even The Berrics. Too bad for letting certain shows go. I feel like those were more organic over then what they do at the Berrics. Just off the cuff interview styles anyways.

Thrasher still holds it down as the best thing on the web as far as skate videos go. Last year was awesome.

I really digged the Weekend Buzz, some of the episodes were quite EPIC (Forrest Gump the retard, the Capaldi bros, Jerry Hsu & Loui B...)
Free Lunch too, the MJ episode was simply awesome, great stories.

But you're right, if the only RC income is Youtube, it's probably not paying much. But hey, birdman should have enough $$ to pay those dudes.

the ride channel was really great for a bit



but they have been blowing it for months now.

they had a really great mix of stuff that kids would like, and older heads.  it seems like they've dumbed it down in the last few months to mostly kid stuff (although i think the Almost things have been more entertaining than I'd like to admit without parenthesis)




Title: Re: Ride Channel, WTF
Post by: fourwheelwonder on February 13, 2014, 12:39:51 AM
True, the Almost segment's been good. Fully Torqued too.

I've seen a Free Lunch a couple weeks ago, maybe this one's not cancelled after all.
I don't see why Thrasher couldn't come up with similar shows (Free Lunch or Weekend Buzz).

I've read that Brink's got his own show, but no idea when it comes out and where.
It's not going to be Weekend Buzz though, more like regular interviews.

Less beer less fun? I mean, Forrest Gump's WB was a killer

Hey, Brink sent me the link to this. I figured I may as well respond as life is too short to not get cyber bullied.
I'll try to hit up the shows mentioned.
Free Lunch: We are still doing that show but have cut back a little. But we just released two parts with David Gravette and the next episode on 2/26 will be with Nuge, then Lizard. Good shit.

Fully Torqued: When Clint came up with the idea, he put it out on Kickstarter with the idea to raise a chunk of money to pay for the travel expenses. RIDE gave him a good chunk and they agreed that they would give us 8 episodes. We loved that show...super raw and funny. If I could get Clint to get us more episodes I would. We certainly didn't cancel anything. Tell him you want more.

In Focus: Trust me. I loved that show. I would have that show go on forever if possible. Unfortunately Manzoori who made those shows is a very busy guy and it became more then he could deal with. It wasn't about money, it wasn't about views although some great episodes really didn't get many views. It was about him not having the time. Will it come back? I hope so. We will have to find another amazing filmer/editor who actually has the time and connections to do it as good as it was.

Buzz: After nearly 100 episodes and 175 or so guests, we all needed a break. It's not easy getting fresh faces to drive down to San Diego to do the show let alone find a sober driver for the drive back. I'm looking for a more central location and hope to bring it back in spring.

I'd tell ya more of what's coming up but I don't want to sound like a spammer. I just thought you guys may want to know what's really going on. I'm sure Brink will chime in when we have a bit more Buzz news.

Post by: skate_bored on February 13, 2014, 03:32:18 PM
on the topic, lemme pitch my 411 idea yet again:

a similar set up to RIDE or The Berrics, but all your favorite features from 411 back in the day. Certain things would obviously be gone, like the intro with amazing tricks since everyone wants to save their footage, but a Day in the Life or whatever the hell all the other ones would be rad. Just release a couple clips a week. With the amount of pro skaters now I think they'd be able to run it for years. Might not be the same without that song though....

I did hear a year or two ago that the guy won a huge settlement or something and was bringing it back, but that was the last I heard.

On topic: I miss the Weekend Buzz...

Nah. No employer will have that effect on me. Seriously. Been at Element 6 months already ... nothing's changed. Need a few free minutes to have a read through of all the comments and I'll reply. Everything's cool. No drama or any negative shit. We needed a break and Ride is switching some things up. I was with them since day one, helped launch the whole deal, poured everything I had into Buzz as well and I plan to still work with them as much as possible. But more importantly ... thank you so much for all the cool shit you are all saying about Buzz ... never expected people would miss it like this. But let's not count it out just yet, and I am working on another show as well ... first ep. is with Nordberg. Stay tuned and thanks again! XO

Thanks for the info. Good shit. Will definitely miss new episodes of WB for however long that is. That and Free Lunch are probably the only two shows in which I've seen every episode.

AYO BRINK U LIKE JAKE JOHNSON ON SOME SLAP PALS SHIT RIGHT NOW, WE WANT THE BUZZ

Haha, amazing. Working on it. How about this "official statement" that I left in another thread that was asking about it.

The quick version: We took a much needed break. Come November, right after the Huf/Reda episode, I was in the middle of moving, the holidays and trade show seasons were approaching, we were flat-out exhausted, having a hard time getting good guests who weren't already on the show or who WANTED to come on and Ride was switching up some stuff internally.

It was the perfect opportunity to take a break ... we did 2 straight years of shows. Probably about 90 or more. We had like 200 guests. It was crazy. Amazing and fun but tiring.

"Other projects" refers to some stuff I am working on. Including a new show, trying to get some articles done that have been pending for months (because I miss being a writer), an online project/concept I am trying to launch and my full time job and clients that I work with.

God, the word "clients" sounds so lame.

I have also just joined the board of directors for Adaptive Action Sports. Really stoked to be able to help further the cause. Check em out.

ADACS: Adaptive Skateboarding on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/37763917)

Anyway, that said, it's not set in stone that Buzz is done. I just got to talking about the next iteration of it with my producer (God, "my producer" sounds so lame) over at Ride and I'm stoked. May take some time but there will be plenty of output from me in the near future. I am hoping that if you like Buzz or some of my other work, that you will enjoy what's coming. It isn't too different. Hopefully it's even better.

Thanks to everyone for caring, asking, watching, missing Buzz and for this thread so on. And I mean that.

they were great shows. glad it's from needing to take a break and not from catching flack for outting chase gabor as a pedo sodomizer.

BTW, is there any chance that some of the shredOrDie shows will make a comeback on the ride channel?

Thanks and no, nothing to do with the screwdriver.

Thank you.

Which beard are you referring to? I guess I never thought of it as a beard, it's really just a week to 10 days of laziness. Then I hit it with the clippers, but not the same clippers I shave my balls with.

Thank you again. You are too kind.

You actually use clippers on your nuts?  I'd be too afraid it would snag my sack and rip it off i just trim em.

A.) I just always use someone elses razor to trim my pubes
B.) Using a razor fucking sucks, gotta trim that shit first to get it down to a managable size

Yes, and one time i did just that ... caught a ridge (or "rugae" to be more clinical) and cut like a one inch long strip of skin off my balls. It wasn't completely disconnected, same way when you slam and rip your palm open and have to pull off the rest of it ... so i kinda patched it back up into place and it somehow miraculously healed ... shit was crazy. gotta be careful down there.

If that fucking meme was made just because of this thread about me shaving my balls, well then, I'm flattered.

It's not a matter of sharing. The problem really lies in the fact that if the clipper gets too close to the taint, I don't want any chance of poo particles on the same clippers that I used for my face. I mean really ... it's worth the extra spend.

And so are wet wipes for your ass when you shit.

Probably more people than you'd expect. I find, in fact that I know more people who shave their balls than wear no underwear. So the underwear thing has me more in the minority than the manscaping does. Shocking.

that's why you have to manscape before showering! can't be walking around with a dingleberry mustache.

i'm hesitant to try wet wipes. i used a bidet once and felt violated.

This is an amazing thread, I'm handing out gnars like oprah.

Personally, I trim the bush and balls with some clippers, and brush up the base of the shaft with a razor when shit starts getting out of hand. I use the same clippers for my head/face/pubes because I know that if I had separate ones I would mix them up at some point anyway so it's not even worth the effort. Face first, then bush because even though I shower right after anyway it would be a bummer if the water broke and I had to walk smelling balls on my beard all day.

See you know wassup! I marked my ball clippers and the ball clipper attachment with a dab of my girl's nailpolish that I found in the bathroom... This way i can tell em apart, even if the attachment is removed.

Wet wipes will change your life. It's like, once you try em you can never go back. Sometimes I accidentally buy the feminine scented ones near the fucking tampons ... it's confusing because they are located in 3 different locations in target. The baby zone, the toilet paper zone and the tampon zone. Sometimes not all three, so you end up in the tampon zone and pick up some chick ones by mistake cuz you're in a rush to get out of the maxi pad aisle.

the ride channel was really great for a bit



but they have been blowing it for months now.

they had a really great mix of stuff that kids would like, and older heads.  it seems like they've dumbed it down in the last few months to mostly kid stuff (although i think the Almost things have been more entertaining than I'd like to admit without parenthesis)


They put out the bulk of their content and can't dig out. It was more of a time capsule thing to experiment and also offset the unenhancement. The core can enhance itself
