Skate video names
« on: January 18, 2011, 01:15:35 PM »
I was thinking about how some skate videos have had really classic names that sometime become part of the skateboarding vocabulary over time, but then there are a lot of videos that have really bad names. Of course the skating is always what matters, but it always sick when the video has a bad-ass or classic title; a name that really sums up a certain element or aspect of what skateboarding/skateboarders are.

So since this is a geek thread basically I thought it would be fun to list the best 5 and worse 5 skate video names, in your opinion.

My favorites:

Future Primative  -Powell/Peralta
Mislead Youth  -Zero
Fucktards  -Anti Hero
Useless Wooden Toys  -New Deal
Photosynthesis  -Alien


The Dumbest:

Hallelujah!  -Transworld
What If?  -Blind
wasn't there a dvs video called "dudes dudes dudes"?
iSkate  -Think
How to go Pro  -Shorty's




Of course, it's all subjective and junk.

I'm not coming up with 5 favorites and least favorites, but a few that come to mind:
Best: Mouse, Fucktards, Last of the Mohicans, Lost and Found, A Visual Sound, Mosaic, Underachievers
Worst: The Beginning, Extremely Sorry, pretty much any video where the title references skating, any Digital video, and wasn't there an old 88 video called "Destroy Everything Now"?

I always thought that Modus Operandi is a great title. Also All Zero videos have great titles, or Ride The Sky. Subject To Change by Osiris is great, and always will be special for me, cause it was the first real skate video I saw.   
And the worst ones, I never liked Sorry, Really Sorry, Extremely Sorry, thats just dumb. In fact, I never liked Flip as a company, so that may be why. And Transworld videos have dumb titles since In Bloom.

Was thinking about this the other day. Some of my favourites...  That's Life, Mislead Youth, Jump Off A Building, Suffer The Joy, This Is Skateboarding, Yeah Right, Waiting For The World.

As for bad, Digital videos are consistently shit. Get Tricks Or Die Tryin' ect.

Stay Gold I liked cuz it reminded me to read The Outsiders again. I like Tincan Folklore too. Elementality was a pretty lame name for a skate video.

why isn't this topic more popular?

Good Names
Inhabitants, Right Foot Forward, Timecode, Mosaic, Ban This, Video Days, Future Primitive, i like how Flip stayed consistent with Sorry....[Edit:] Lurkers 2: Skateboarding is For Me (NYC Local)

Bad Names
Elementality, Superfuture (yet to be released), [Edit:] Skateboarding is Forever (maybe if it was released 5/10 years ago it woulda ment something)

then there are wierd ones like Friends With Benefits...Locally there's a NYC video that goes by Trife/Flipmode 4 i prefer Trife though everyone calls it Flipmode 4 even though the series started with Flipmode 3....
