THE death of youwillsoon.com
« on: June 06, 2013, 04:23:32 PM »
A lot of you have been hitting me up lately, asking what's happening with YouWillSoon. In the last few years, the main focus of the site was to call out what I perceived to be bullshit in the skateboard industry. Over the years, as the site grew in popularity, I got to know some of the people I had previously slandered on the site. One of those people in particular was Steve Berra.

Steve and I have maintained a heated back and forth for a couple of years now. Last month, after a long chat with Steve, hashing things out, I actually went down to meet with him and spend some time at The Berrics. After seeing what actually goes on there, what it means to people, and what they do for skateboarding, I'm afraid I have to admit that I was wrong about them. They are trying to promote skateboarding in a positive way, and I feel that I should be doing the same. I'm not going to erase my negative past, what's done is done, but moving forward, I will no longer be maintaining youwillsoon.com. I'll leave the site up as a record, but will not be changing the tone of it or posting in the future. I'm older, and it's time to start acting like a man. A positive man.

I don't want to tell you how to live your life, but I will suggest leading by example. Actions speak louder than words. Please take a good look in the mirror and be the person you want to be.

(EDIT: This post is actually just a prank that my friend pulled on me after I left my Slap account logged in at work. Please keep reading before you think I would ever be friends with Steve Berra, that friggin turd.)

Good on you Watson. The fact that you came in here to let us know what happened to your site is pretty awesome. Best of luck.

1.) You met Berra and decided to stop blogging and, more generally, stop being negative?  You offered more than just Berra-bashing, youwillsoon was fun as fuck to read and I think added something to the skate community.

2.) Your last post ever is going to be about the new Blueprint team?!

so when is your street league trip, watson?
how was your business lunch with phil knight?

anyways i see where you coming from. I have been to the point where posts/jokes/photoshop ideas popped into my head to release on this message board that had myself in tears of laughter when thinking about it. a lot of them i had already typed in and was ready to post. but there is that point where i read the post once again and think "naw dude it's funny as shit, but it's kinda harsh. If i'd be that guy and read that about myself I would be really pissed off. might as well cry." Then i think about karma and decide to delete it.
at the end of the day i still try to be a nice person.
In most cases somebody else comes up with that same joke a few posts later anyway.

This would make a lot more sense if it were posted on April 1st.

I'm glad that you want to be more "positive" but your changing viewpoint on this jackass scientologist is just not right.

I smoked pot out of an apple with Riley Hawk's dad.

This thread is like 1 million litres of Gatorade and Mountain Dew, yet it will still not quench Berra's thirst for praise.

hopefully this is a joke - maybe someone got access to his account?  if it's real, why post it here other than to appease berra somehow?  why not just make a post on the blog itself, seems like that would be more believable/poignant.

Somebody rescue him from the berrics because he's obviously being detained for "cleansing".  His name is Robert Paulson.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.
