I've been watching a lot of skate trick compilations and there's this thing where people land tricks into different types of no-comply pop shuv variations. I'm not hating, but it's just weird seeing dudes land a trick with one foot on the ground.

Is trap and mumble rap the same thing?

Don't know if this would be the right thread but i don't understand this bail. Although i know everyone here hates Vinnie but he for the most part caught this perfect but on impact both of his feet pop out forward. I've never seen a bail like this, I guess my rant is more toward how fickle gravity is  :-\

....or maybe that he used Grizzly instead of Mob grip

that slam ruled, monkey!
let me take a crack at it. it looks like he's used to landing his fs flips just shy of 180 degrees and powerslides the last few degrees celsius. it wasn't necessary w/ the 10 foot drop but his muscle memory still was going for it.
the ground was particularly grippy [wouldn't expect that indoors] and his wheels gained purchase instead of sliding a little bit and his feet kept going like a body when you hit the front brakes on a bike.

Is trap and mumble rap the same thing?

trap is basically the style of beats that are popular now. mumble rap is a style of vocal delivery. the two can be mixed together.

people like this shit because the beats are catchy and the lyrics are dumbed down so much that you pretty much know the whole song in the first ten seconds of hearing it. you dont even have to think about it, its just something that sort of sounds cool and makes for good party music (in some peoples opinion). its loud, obnoxious, intoxicated and rebellious, which is what has been popular with young people for decades. the sounds always change, but they always seem to fit those characteristics.

it's not for me, but that's the easiest way i can explain why i believe its popular.

anything else i can clear up for ya'll?

It looks to me like he extended his legs fully a bit early, loses contact with the board and the board lands first then when he lands stiff legged with his weight is on his heels but his feet hit toe side he just bounces of.

I wouldn’t call that a bail. He stuck it. He just didn’t have the right form or calculate it correctly.

as an over 40 dude, I fully support this thread!

so here goes: it's already been adressed somewhat, but PC culture drives me nuts. Safe spaces, blah blah, and now even Apu in the Simpsons is offensive? Gimme a fuckin break.

Also you guys don't have this in the US, but I reeeally hate the "ecriture inclusive" movement in France. (basically in French you have masculine and feminine words, and "ecriture inclusive" is about erasing gender from WORDS and the way you write. I wont get too deep into it but it's full-on orwellian).

Also: DJ culture. Celebrity DJ's. Everybody is a DJ now that computers and MP3 have made it easy. And DJs who pack giant fucking stadiums. You guys really pay good money to see a dude play MP3's through Ableton Live on stage???

When 'curb your enthusiasm' came out I remember being super excited because it was a show just about George more or less....then being disappointed because the guy was so.....angry.  Now of course I watch it and think...that's me.

You guys complaining about friends weddings?  Wait till they have kids....

I don't get street walkers. I understand escort services and other craigslist for hire schemes, but hooking on the street seems complicated. Is there a designated motel? Do you take them home? Do it in the car? Unless it's the first option (with a pimp on standby), the others seem excessively dangerous for the hoe.

you're very welcome in here Frenchy! That Simpsons things is nuts because the Simpsons took the piss out of everyone, not just Indian people. I mean that was the Simpsons' whole schtick ffs!!!
I guess people are trying to changes words in the English language too, I see people complaining about it on FB and it's just like, "really? that's your battle? okay..."

DJ's, well I never really dug electronic music too much but I guess it makes a bit more sense if they actually mix vinyl like mix master mike or something but yeah, simply bringing your MP3 player along is pretty crazy.

Masters of the old man rant
nice, I especially liked the latter and it related back to the Simpsons too, he actually raised some good points (extra point for mentioning the treatment of animals too). The 90s clothing one had me in stitches and reminded me again of the alltimers vid, that one is still a mystery to me (and everyone circle jerking it in that thread). Guess that really means I'm over the hill...

Crossfit.

So they just mixed everything that already exists and perform it poorly. Also those fucking "boxes" charge you, at least, 100 bucks a month. What a deal! Some washed up cunts teach a bunch of cult members to do "kipping" pull-ups (no such thing) and dealifts for reps (terrible idea).

And another thing! They always HAVE to have the latest/most expensive shit. No matter the skill level.

I get the impression they want exercising to be a cool lifestyle type of thing but being a “crossfitter” is like calling yourself a jazzerciser. It’s something you do, not something you are, and looks to be just the latest fitness/exercise trend.

  (I meant to quote silloette right here)   In front of his ultra kooky all white audience he talks brutally about dj music  which actually is hip hop and it started in Jamaca (dancehall).  Hip hop appealed to black people  in part because white people had appropriated  jazz and rock (and also because hip hop is good music).  So Rollins goes in about "sam cookes sweat" cause he's a jazz snob fuck and thinks it gives him creditbility.  He veers his dialoge so that its sounds like he's taking aim at "rave" music when in fact by definition he's condemning hip hop but he doesn't say the words 'hip hop' cause that would make him look like a complete racist (wolf in sheeps clothing).  Seriously tho fuck that 40 y/o audience for laughing at Rollins' 'jokes' and same with anybody who would go to a Joe Rogan stand up and laugh at/support his non funny shit too.  Rave music was sick as fuck anyway.

Spoilers and rims and shit on $3000 cars

Fuck right off

Also people who lift trucks and have massive tires and have no logical reason for it. If you use your truck in mining or the oilfield, ok. But if you use it for highway driving...

ok.........dude you're wrong on so many levels I don't know where to start....ok first off I hate this "appropriation" concept. Music and culture and ideas is supposed to transcend color and disseminate across society, not stay confined where it started. Or you think skateboarding is a white boy sport too?
also no, he does not mean hip hop. he talks explicitly about the euro electronic scene, which has been huge for over 20 years. And by the way in the 90's, hip hop and house/techno did not mix at all. Those 2 scenes were total ennemies believe me.
Finally if you're a musician, you know electronic music has become so easy to make with current software. Compared to the work it takes to get a band to sound tight, it's like comparing skating to rollerblading.
Oh and Sam Cooke ain't jazz....
