They relaunched from Dayton in October 2015 less than a year after folding with a new am team (a few of which have gone pro) in the Bunker Down video.

Maybe it's because he got on during an earlier iteration of Alien, but I've legitimately never understood how someone thought Mikey Taylor ever fit on Alien Workshop. The context of current day Mikey and how much he's kooked himself could make it just a judgement based on hindsight, but can someone please explain how he ever fit?

Thread is funnier than it should be. Yaje and Nguyen are sick. Everyone else is sick but they all look and dress the same. I kinda like their whole 'Techie about to gentrify the shit outta Detroit' vibe they got going on.

Grant Taylor, not Mike.
At least when you're a washed-out hipster douchebag in NY, you can milk it at some decent looking, hard to skate spots. In LA you're just a tan-lined faggot in a school yard somewhere.

College I believe.
Keenan had that special ability to make his switch tricks better than his regular tricks but still let you know they were switch.

This is my favorite part ever. Can we agree that this is probably the pinnacle clip in which both the company and these riders will ever be a part of?

No, it's not the same as it was before but this new iteration is honestly going well. They've stayed pretty consistent with the videos. I think turning Frankie pro was a little questionable but they needed another pro, I think only Joey and Yaje were pro. Brandon will probably never go pro as long as he lives in Japan.

Joey is Def the standout though, he reminds me of Mosaic but a bit updated.

I've only skated them since the comeback and I've been pretty happy with the quality

Loved this clip too. It looked/felt/sounded like some mindfield throwaways with some new mixed in. I loved mindfield.

all the Life Splicing clips were also rad... I liked the way things were going just before the plug was pulled. 



as to present day... I dont have a problem with the new AWS.  as most have pointed out, AWS has gone through several 're-do's' of the team.  i got into it most heavily with Photo, which was a change up from Memory Screen era

Joey Guevara is definitely the one keeping me interested.  i still think he's a better fit on Habitat, but I do also still like to think of the two brands as connected (which they are again...?).  Anyways, the guy is a perfect fit in the Sovereign Sect camp... a lil Danny Garcia smooth/trick selection, some heavy Mosaic era vibes with the Miguel Valle filming/editing. 

Also: they should put Miguel Valle on as a skater... he rips

hardly art, hardly starving
