A JENKY INVESTIGATION INTO JONAH HILLíS SKATE PAST

pretty pointless 'investigation' as its basically everything that has been discussed on SLAP

i wonder if he knows/cares people are discussing him on slap?

ďSo the next time your neighbor mentions ďthis new skateboard movieĒ they read about in the New Yorker, you donít have go on a triggered rant about how skateboard culture is getting hijacked by outsiders.Ē


Except that he quit, so he is an outsider. ďI useda skateĒ kooks are worse than people who never started. You had the opportunity to be a skateboarder, and you abandoned it? Biggest kook move imaginable

If he was a ďused to skateĒ kook and was wearing quasi or toy machine or dc or any other brands that arent just hot right now id have more respect for it.  But being a used to skate dude and wearing only palace and supreme is as cornball as it gets.

Yeah. He has no idea how careers work. The idea that career=work and sleep only comes from a dude working part time at the gas station living with his parents

You guys are such haters! Damned if the kid does, damned if he didnít. If he lived it for X amount of years, he lived it. You donít get on girls that can barely kickflip, you harp on about supporting them.

If heís got genuine love for skateboarding I donít really see what the problem is. You guys donít own this.

If you Google the reviews so far critics like the movie. What I think is going on is Jonah Hill is straight up trolling, and you guys are taking the bait, just let it go. If the movie had a sci-fi twist or something I'd be all into it...but the plot is basically a 13 year old with a dysfunctional broken home, meets his skater friends, loses his virginity, and grows up.

I remember when Kids came out my friends and I didn't glorify it because skating all day with your friends, smoking blunts, drinking 40's, chasing girls, cracking jokes, house parties, etc is what every teenage skater did back in the day.

So this movie mid 90s is about yourself than just live the life in reality and skip the movie, or watch it once, whatever.

Are you being sarcastic? A person who quits skateboarding clearly doesnít have genuine love for skateboarding. A person who still skates, regardless of how good of a kickflip they have DOES have genuine love for skateboarding.
Like, your argument and your examples are exact opposites. Were you trying to look that stupid, or does it come naturally to you?

My biggest issue is that he "used to skate" and has only entered skateboarding again to make sure his movie gets a good reception.

I know people bashed lil wayne a ton when he came in but he's actually skateboarding and seems to like it. He films stuff, even if its shit. He builds parks and goes out skating with skateboarders.

That one Kyle dude on SNL seems to actually skate too, even if he's not very good and hangs out with Richie Jackson.

There's obviously no old photos/footage of jonah hill skateboarding. Why isn't there any new stuff? Oh right he watched tyshawn do a big flip in the Adidas video, totally means he's a skateboarder right? This article is saying we should give him a pass because he was the fat kid who went to the skateshop and spent his mom's money, even if no one talks about him ACTUALLY skating.

He's attempting to sell out a culture that he hasn't been engaged in for like 20 years and we have every right to call it disingenuous.

The issue, to me, isn't if he skates/skated or not, it's that he's a total superkook, can't kickflip or crook as has been claimed, and he's probably dehydrated from all the cum skaters have drained out of him the past two weeks.

I was hoping the Jenkem interview would be more than just collated evidence from here.

Can't someone from Illegal Civ just make Jonah do something and then post it to instagram? If Jonah really skated, I find it very hard to believe that he never stepped on a board and rolled around during filming (besides that kickflip sequence).

I'm not even asking for kickflip footage - just roll around and ollie a manhole cover and I'd be appeased

I just hope that his movie gives the USA skateboard team the boost it needs to win gold in the olympics.  I think we can all agree on that.

Ignoring nearly everything you wrote, since you bore me.

I quit skating for a time due to piling out, and trying to find my way in life. I thought about skating to the point of dreaming about it often. I still followed and loved it as much as I did when I was out there all day everyday. Itís not such a black and white thing as youíd like to believe it is, but you are who you are, and itís predictable youíd react the way you have here.

See, I can respect this opinion though.

Itís the ďI bet he didnít even skateĒ crowd coming across like a bunch of bitter gatekeepers that annoy me. If this film influences a kid to pick up a board and find what he loves Iím not gonna sit here and whine about it.

Typical Slap poster or Jonah Hill? 
- May or may not have ever actually done the act of skateboarding
- If skateboarded, unable to produce any evidence of proficiency
- Slightly witty, fat and of marginal importance
- If not making constant noise, forgotten about
I offer myself as exhibit A.

The rhetoric that Slap posters don't skate is a lazy excuse made by outsiders to disregard legitimate opinions.

If the move is good and it accurately depicts skateboarding rather than make a mockery of it ie Grind, I don't see the issue. He is passionate about skateboarding from what I can tell.

Look at what happened when skateboarders (who are considered legends and have had careers most would dream of) make a movie... We got street dreams. I have a gut feeling that Jonah the Jew will do a better job than Dyrdek and P. Rod did. Doubt he will embarrass the skateboard community like street dreams did.
