First it was deleted now it was pulled... Save your judgement for when you actually see the part.

And to say Rick or anyone at Girl was psyched on MJ putting out a part for another board company at the same time as his FF part is a bit of a leap. FF was a huge investment of time, creativity, and resources--everyone wanted it to shine as much as possible.



you keep nit-picking at my posts as though it will make you seem better, you did not let an MJ part get put in a video against his will, therefore you're a douchebag. the fact you're too stubborn to admit it was a dick-move just strengthens you're douchebag-ness. I'm definately buying MJ's full story over yours anyway. MJ does not have a history of leaving shit out, whereas if you watch that abortion of a music video you call "pretty sweet", you left out a fuckload lolololol.

Incomplete Ty Evans Crimes Against Humanity list:


1. Trying to make MJ delete a part. (How "good" Ty thinks the part is remains irrelevant. It's a fucking MJ part. Also, that it survived was clearly a
fluke so he deserves the shit he's getting for this.)
2. Leaving that Gino Seaport line on the cutting room floor.

3. Cutting the full parts of the OGs from PS.

4. His evolution from raw skate vids to Hollywood fluff.



Regardless, he made some of the best skate videos of the last decade or so. (Pre Fully Flared)

In the future when people go to watch FF/PS they are going to remember the skating.  Ty will be forgotten and the pros of the day will live on.  He will never be the star of the show... Even if he tries to rule the production like a dictator

Maybe not as severe as what's listed above, but I also really hated how Alvarez's part was edited, kinda ruined what could have been an incredible part from an incredible skater..

Super bummed.

Ty will not be forgotten easily, but he will be remembered with something to his name. Pretty Sweet may not be appreciated here, but there are a ton of other non-forum-lurking skateboarders who really dig it.
He did create some of the greatest videos in Skateboarding, watch Modus Operandi and those who remember it, remember it.

But the angry internet dude side of me is fucking pissed off at the fact that the stopped a Marc Johnson "fun part" from ever being seen. Ty, I'm sure that the level that MJ was skating at in the lost part is nowhere near what is in Fully Flared or Pretty Sweet, but we dont give a double flying fuck about that. You see, we, as skateboarders and fans of skateboarding videos, don't get to constantly hang out with the best of best of the industry on a daily basis. We dont get to film them doing the craziest trick taking 7+ hours to land. For you, thats probably what you think we'll enjoy. But we want to see a humble side to MJ's skateboarding also, and thats the part that you dont seem to understand. Even if its badly filmed or the tricks are only curbstalls or parking block grinds, dork tricks and dumb stuff, we'd love to see it.

If some clips were used - cool. But at the end of the day, there are those of us who would really appreciate viewing the content in its original edit.

That's fair.  I had to refresh my memory on who he was.  You can find him on a scooter here:


Damn looked so much better back in the day when people didn't yo out their tailwhips.

Ty is calling out Commercial D.

Its like Dave Mayhew making fun of Scott Pazelt.

Care to 'splain' this reference? 

one was my hero ("the storm" times...) before i actually saw his pro shoe and got my 2nd skatevideo (compared to ty who made some of my favourite skatevideos including fully flared and then kooked it out totally), the other one was a guy i never took seriously. maybe its more of a personal reference. i somehow feel bad comparing scott and commercialD though.
That's fair.  I had to refresh my memory on who he was.  You can find him on a scooter here:


Ugh. When I think of "shitty late 90s / early 00s style", I think of Scott Pazelt. He was a friend of mine's favorite skater back in the day. That friend is now a scientologist. I think that says a lot.


say what you will about Ty but he helped shape the past 10+ years of skate videos and created some of the most iconic videos around. the fully flared/pretty sweet hate is all about personal taste but generally speaking this is the direction their videos have had for a while and it worked great for the companies. times are changing and people have to adapt whether or not we personally like every decision.

Many people have made great art at one time and then kooked it out. Modus is still my favorite vid of all time. Deleting MJ footage is unforgivable.

The worst part is that it seems Ty himself doesn't even like the videos he's making now. Go back a few pages and watch that Epicly Later'd...he talks about the stress and craziness of FF, how Chomp was so much more fun and they should make another video like that. So no one -- not the skaters, not the Pals, not Ty himself -- no one is happy with where videos went. Except the general non-skateboarding public, and 13-yr-olds. PROGRESS.

It was a stressful time with a lot of shit clouding everyone's judgement. Everyone involved with FF probably has a list of things they'd go back and do differently if they could.

With MJ's other part it was just a timing thing with the release of FF. In hindsight it wasn't a big deal but at the time it felt like it.

I'm happy the part's being released.

Good to hear. Hindsight is a hell of a thing.

Now all that's out of the way, how you enjoying the Black Magic camera?

This reads so funny to a queen like me because gay dudes use "FF" as shorthand for fist fucking.

"Everyone involved with fist fucking probably has a list of things they'd go back and do differently if they could."

Modus will not be forgotten and truth is Ty made some good vids but pretty sweet bummed me out.
Every super tech bullshit flip in/out trick looked so desperate and gross.  I miss the days of 5 trick lines and homies filming.  This shit is trying to turn into a sport and if that is fully accomplished watch the shit disappear.  The whole game is fucked up.  It's supposed to be about pushing yourself not having somebody else push you.  MJ is the shit Tiltmode all day
