Exact same thing I came to post. Who would have thought Tracker Larry would make it in the 21 century?

could not agree more.  my first introduction to Blender was the Ban This section with him, Lance, and O.  the house with the all the ramps looked so fun and that mini ramp was the shit.

refreshing take on copers. why not? so cool that he doesn't care about being cool. as a little pipsqueak, I would go to the legendary Turf skatepark. Coper rule was enforced. I would always keep the copers on for a week or 2 after going. be grinding curbs with ease. it was fun.

Loop would actually be a good name for a company.

Larry trying to sell him on some new Trackers is kind of embarrassing.
