Yeah, he's technically skilled but there is something very dull about watching him skate. Where's the passion?
Your parents wonder the same thing every day since your birth.

How do you think he's dull to watch? Should there be more whacky arm flailing like Pudwill? or this guy?

He obviously must love skateboarding to be that good but that love or excitement doesn't seem come through in his skateboarding. It's just trick, trick, trick, no biggie.

Fair enough, I respect his talent and that's just his style but it just isn't that thrilling to watch.

Dude owns a skateshop, skates constantly, enters every contest ever, has put out his own videos with upcoming friends, has filmed solo parts just to keep footage releasing at a consistent rate (even though the board company pushes back their video), and you doubt that he has love or excitement for skateboarding?

I don't think I've ever seen Paul do anything besides skate...which to me shows more than passion and excitement for what he does.

I guess I don't understand. If he arm barred and self cheered after every trick - he'd be a kook right? He rides away from amazing things with complete modesty - and he doesn't have passion? Come the fuck on.

By typing this statement you are hereby acknowledging the fact that you are fully aware that there is indeed such a thing as personal preference, and not only does this kind of thinking actually exist, but that you believe in it.

But what you may not be aware of is that you can apply this particular train of thought to other subjects that aren't music.

Here are a couple of easy to follow examples:

1. Someone likes "A", and you don't.
     That's cool.

2. You like "B", but someone else doesn't.
     Also cool!

Personal preference, baby!

It really is a wonderful concept isn't it?
Now all you have to do is try applying it the next time you smugly shit all over someone or something that other people happen to like but you don't.
Also, and this is really convenient, it can be applied when something or someone that you happen to like is (gasp!) shown dislike by another person.

Suuuuper easy.
Try it!

Anyway, thanks for being here, and don't forget to tune in next time when we'll cover the concept of how it is possible to enjoy the skateboarding of.....wait for it........two completely different kinds of skateboarders!

I would do dark and terrible things in exchange for switch back tails like that.
i saw my grandma bail off a 4 set once in my house and she even got up and came to red lobster after.

i used to find p-rod's style pretty boring, but he's definitely grown into it and all of that footage looked amazing. he's a good kind of robot
