neither anymore...one is a pillhead and the other is a fat pillhead. I'm always going to love their Photosynthesis and Mosaic parts, but everyone already knows how good these guys were.

Bobby Puleo acts like what you have said.. I don't think Pappalardo and Wenning think the same way, don't generalize..

With Bobby? This is not a one-off kinda thing, that comes from every angle.

The other thing that I immediately felt or noticed was that it seemed like the part was basically sponsored by a corporate entity, Adidas. So I’m watching it thinking to myself that first off, Adidas is basically paying for this kid to go out to Philly to mimic and skate all this shit that took Rick and other's years to unearth and nurture. Second, they’re paying this filmer schmoe to hold this kid’s hand to these spots. They're paying to put the kid up, put food in his mouth, fly him home when he gets homesick and wants to see Mom and what not. Fly him back when the weather was manageable. I mean come on. Personally, I thought the part was basically a simulation or portrayal of someone who actually is from or around Philly. Amazing skating and all, but a simulation of someone who is actually a Philly local. Ridiculous. The dude’s from San Wherever or wherever he's from. He's not from Philly. And I don't think Philly should be used as a backdrop for a fake Philly part, Habitat's hanging on to the past, or Adidas corporate enterprises. Let's be real here.

  ^Not one thing wrong with what he said there.  He didn't lie, the shit he's saying is true.  "San where ever"  -it's endearing he thought of that, it's funny.  Bobby is what's cool not a bunch of opportunistically negative meme producing internet users.  (what he said about skaters names was pretty sweet too)

Fine, then consider him a hypocrite for doing the same shit suciu did for his static 2 part when he was in London.

  ^yes i was waiting for that card, that card been drawn a few times roun 'ere.  Thing is tho really from the perspective of the words in the interview, Bobby had established his east coast shit years b4 that shit in london or his bit in san fran.  And when he went away to film (which was rare) he could  stay on couches (uh whens the last time you think suciu stayed on a couch?) cause he had peoples respect from already repping east coast for years.  This is a little different from sudiu's thing.  Bobby wasn't a corpo funded solo ripper with rich parents. I'm not hating on Suciu myself, he's got my respect but i'm not Bobby fucking Puleo.  99% of pros out there aren't bobby fucking puleo.  Suciu TOTALLY was going for the 90s east coast "look" - so you think people like Bobby should feel flattered or something?  Listen, Bobby is kinda a haters paradise it seems, what can ya do?

(from the other thread but...)
What if I told Bobby Puleo doesn't actually own any spots (nor any particular geographical locations)

Bobby Puleo acts like child on what he says for me - like don't touch my toy is mine- sort of ahah.
Bobby says that Mark should have done part where he lives in San Jose, California - he actually did it. Just watch Cityscape that's all filmed there, also in Cross Continental there are tricks from where he live. Having inspiration don't means copy.
Born in another place doesn't mean you can't film a part in a city you love - Bobby speaks about emulating an east coast vibes. But I think Mark created a new vibes for me. His part like Cross Continental and Search the Horizon are the best parts produced in these years. And for sure is also for him that I know all the east coast videos and stuff.
So thank you Mark.

  ^Honestly I agree with you, Mark Sucui's parts are gifts but the appropriation might get you some boos from who you're appropriating from.  The internet is built around negative opinion and this situation needs more light than this forum bullshit imo.  These threads all go thru the slap process and have a predictable tradjectory.  And then some conclusion is drawn about someones character  from whichever group rails the hardest with their hater stuff.  Not this thread but the big ones about Bobbies interview or whatever other little tid bits people make big threads about.  (I gotta ask tho, were you skating in 95?)

No, I'm 18. I wish I was from that era tho. However I'm not hating on Puleo, but if you wanna hate on someone I don't think Suciu is the appropriate guy. Just imagine if Suciu was from the 90's era, now he would be a legend for sure and would had respect from Puleo.
"Bobby wasn't a corpo funded solo ripper with rich parents" times are different, corporation are just the result of the big diffusion of skateboarding, and it generally changed in all his aspects. Suciu skated for habitat also when it was pratically over.
He stayed on Habitat only for the love for the brand - sort of the same Puleo did sleeping in couch for film in the cities he liked.
Times are different but the meaning is the same. Puleo acts like a legend, but if I want to put a video before skate I surely would choose   Cross Continental from Mark. He gives more inspiration and real vibes for me.

You mean now?

Fuck Bobby for trying to claim Philly too, acting like he runs or EVER ran the whole east coast... fucking bridge and tunnel Jersey scum trying to claim every city he grew up near but not in. If Ricky said he was ripping off Philly then it MIGHT have some weight. If Fred Gall said that then it MIGHT have some weight. If Serge came out from wherever he's been hiding and said that it MIGHT have some weight. I don't remember Puleo's part in Eastern Exposure, maybe its because those came out when he was busy being a tourist on the West Coast. Shouldn't Bobby be busy crying about Aaron Herrington and Taylor Nawrocki?
Along with that, dude can't claim he has respect when he was a straight up SF vulture when that shit was cool back in the mid 90's, and if he's going to come out like that, blow out some spots and move his ass back where he came from, he can hold his tongue when younger kids do what he did when he was younger. Along with that, I don't remember Puleo having a reason to be out there the way Suciu actually went to college in Philly. Puleo is just some bitch ass white "artist" gentrifying Brooklyn while trying to come out hard claiming other people are moving to cities where they don't belong.
That was a lot to say, but all of it is fucking obvious.

Didn't Puleo also do what he hates people doing in New York to some spots in London? And its not like Bobby was above taking a check from some corporation, he rode for Enjoi whose checks were signed by Globe International, which is a publically traded company. The guy is the classic "artistic" hypocrite.

As for Wenning and Pops, those guys helped define an era, their run from Photosynthesis to Mosiac/DC video was sick.

Who did the Love gap better? Pops or Wenning?
Such a hard call...
I don't want to choose.

I think Wenning's switch bs 180 looks better, but Pops switch ollie is so fierce, plus the editing/music is soooooo perfect.
Conclusion: Pops by a hair.

I'd say Wenning's make is more impressive. Pops was attempting the switch flip that night, which given when that was and who he is, is fucking mindblowing. They show him land on one and fall in the credits of fully flared.

Switch flip is indeed fucked. Wish he stuck it.
I wish a lot of things about Pops...
