Something else I find fascinating is where people are trying to draw the line on what is and isn't antisemitism surrounding her happening to be Jewish. Which if you're Jewish, there's some added fire to fuel the comments for or against her stance.

The Palestine/Israel conflict being thrown into this dumpster fire is a doozy, since commenting "Free Palestine" can be seen as antisemitic.

Whether you agree or disagree, I have no qualms. I am curious where people are drawing the line, since people throwing that around aren't targeting her, but are speaking politically on her page about the Palestine/Israel conflict because she happens to be Jewish.

FREE PALESTINE is never antisemitic wtf lmao

Exactly my thoughts, but some people say otherwise on IG... albeit also defending Taylor, so there's some bias there, obviously.

I believe that was someone out of the Oregon scene (Frank Shaw I think?). Lindloff posted some republican nonsense a while back, which may be what you are thinking about.

No, it is definitely true about Jesse as well.

Any thread / info about this?

Weird 10 years on Toy Machine. Got on when they were inactive, and not putting out any video content. Had one video part for them which was more or less footage not used for Trust Fall. Other than that...?

Disorder makes perfect sense. Looks like they are dropping a video soon, so we'll see.

His Dekline part really stood out to me.   Didn’t he switch 360 flip 5-0 a rail?

I'm talking specifically his tenure on Toy Machine. But also that might just go hand in hand with Toy Machine being in a sort of skateboarding wilderness for a fair chunk of his time on there. The Dekline part is a very good technical skateboard part, but to me it's just sort of got this washed Ride Channel (Raglans, Singlets, cheap sunglasses) feel to it, where nothing from that time period has aged well.

I feel like True Blue (Dekline, 2014?) aged quite well, but people associating the footage from that video as a Dekline (Tum Yeti) offering escapes a lot of people. That video pushed Blake to be a candidate for Nike (and Vans, etc.)

Toy put out quite a bit in the last 10 years while Blake was on: Programming Injection, Vaccine, Scorched Earth, and other mini projects/tour videos that he was part of.

Did nobody else read 'lol I like that' as 'lol I like that you are strong enough to shut me down'?

Maybe I'm just being too theosophical.

Up late, about to hit the hay but worth noting.

Since 2004 you could compete in the Olympics with the gender you identify as if under hormone treatment for at least 2 years. It wasn't until last year, 2021, that a transgender athlete won gold, and it was a team sport, soccer.

Real was my first thought - skate mental would fit but yuck.

Uma's a neat speculation and Disorder would be embarrassing.

I'll say this again. Undisputed Elie is a whack ass name and KOR and Fish kinda suck as characters.

I don’t know why but I love Kyle O’Reilly. I laugh every time he earnestly bobs his head completely off the beat to his entrance song and still love him for some reason. I think I just really liked his singles push and feud with Adam Cole in NXT? Great wrestler, terrible showman. Big fan of that goofball.

CM Punk showing up in an “abortion rights” shirt in Texas was awesome. And Excalibur complimenting him on it while JR and Tony Schiavone sat unsure how to respond. Never would have happened in WWE.

Haha I hope it's clear that I'm half playing along when I post some of this stuff. I don't actually hate Kyle O'Rimjob with a passion, but he does annoy me so I cheer against him. Also Im a huge Rey Fenix mark so I always get salty when he has to lose haha.

KOR is definitely a goofball, and I think it's one of those things that either hits for you or it doesn't. I think part of it is that I got really burnt out on that indy mma style he works in a lot of his matches. I can't really talk shit though, back in the day I loved Brian Christopher/Grandmaster Sexy and my friends HATED him. Same with Norman Smiley.

And yeah can you imagine how bad Punks shirt must have chapped Linda McMahon's dusty old evil republikaren ass? I'm so, so glad there's a real legit (aka not TNA) alternative to the WWE.
