definitely prepared for people who were complaining about Toy's lack of diversity to now say that Dashawn doesn't fit the Toy Machine image.

Sound track sucked but otherwise the skating was great. I don't think there will ever be a legit "Hawaiian" song edit like Trepassos in suffer the joy. That double circle grind was absolutely fucked along with Dashaun Jordan's ender.

The Toy Machine hate is so weird. I mean, who cares? They do the young handrail chomper/ripper thing well and fuck, I am in my 40s and I still think their product looks fine. idk man, go to the Graig Top apology thread and stop inventing hate for a brand that hasnt really done anything wrong, they just are what they are.

And if theyre struggling, then idk how they make so much fucking product. their catalog is totally absurd. Maybe its not the smartest of business but theyve been doing it for 25 years soooo.....
ok thanks

soundtrack sounds like they tried to pay as little as possible for rights. thats why videos that don't actually go for the song rights are always 100x better (917, hockey, quasi, etc) it's like toy WANTS you to fall asleep from boredom watching it
regardless, dashawn killed it. i saw people in another thread speculating that he's a kook but i've actually heard that he's a super cool dude. I think he just has that lingering sls/sovrn stigma
Church is worth the money, not wasting money though

As I watch a new Toy Machine skater i've never heard of go on a kickflip-into-handrail barrage akin to Jon Allie in Dying To Live twenty years ago, i reflect on how little it moves me, and stare into the endless abyss of my mortality - having now exhausted myself of floppy haired t-shirt people skateboarding handrails among quirky text overlays, was it my time to die? Each song, each animation, a simulacrum of a an actual childhood, rhyming roughly with the well-trod path that was laid for it long ago, and yet hollow, a pale reflection of a poem now forgotten, saddled with favors past.

The aesthetic presents itself as if it does not care, in the way a rebellious child doesn't, but it's clear that it does. God, it so, so, does. It has settled into its lot, and settled for the long haul, like the friend we all have who married early and soldiers on, a husk of a person turning their hamster wheel all day every day, not daring to stop for fear of losing what little inertia they have

Some relief washes over me as I accept that I have squeezed all the joy I can out of this format, the "toy machine video", and now I can move on to the next plane of existence, as my ancestors have for time immemorial. I give thanks for the thing that it was, and set both it and myself aflame.

Braden is sooooo fucking good wow. Dashawn rips obviously and I enjoyed his part, but man it is weird seeing a dude in a Redbull beanie skating for Toy.

Anyone else weirded out by the editing on his fakie flip over that gate? Cuts to a different angle mid-trick which sucks because I liked the original angle better, they must have goofed on the filming.

Such a tough, cool-guy crowd in here. That video was sick.

Braden dude's part was nuts and back half of his part had Billy Marks G&E vibes.

Dashawn's part was fucked, regardless of Trapasso vibes. Bummer that people always find something to hate on him for. Skates fast, makes tough shit look equal parts easy and sketch, but gets ragged on him for being too nice(?), wearing shorts, being too "athlete", whatever. He fucking rips and deserved last part, especially on something other than Business & Company.

I think this is the most promising team Toy Machine has had in years.

With that being said, this video would have been much more enjoyable if they didn't use the same fake "pop" sound on every other trick. Did that bother anyone else?

Fair point, I just pay such little attention to him that I forget he exists. Happy Dashawn landed somewhere besides Business and Co.

Definitely an improvement over the last one but man these modern Toy videos do not hold a candle to either of the previous coveted eras of Toy. The editing just makes it feel like a caricature of its former self.

fully agree, i knew who i was talking about but had to check their ig to remember his name. dashawn fits, i dont really see the nick trapasso comparison. dashawn has a very solid style and unique trick selection so im down, but that being said im not a toy person generally

Being  first exposed to toy machine from jump off a building and heavy metal instead of good and evil etc. may be why I donít see how dashawn doesnít fit. I feel he does fit on classic toy machine before the right pants and rails toy. Maybe they are trying go back to the roots of toy. I agree with @HotnSpicyMcChicken  itís weird to see a red bull baby on toy. Dashawn fits fine Red Bull baby not so much.

I agree the laser back lip was a rough start but I liked Dashawns part and thought the song was a good choice. It sticks out but itís also mellow.

Also think itís cool that there are people of all different ages, ethnicities, and sexes mixed in who all rip.

My biggest gripe is the overly polished look of the animations and CJ Collins.

Is that the first female bump to bar?

Jordanís part was absolutely wild, I liked the song, itís no trapasso part but thatís because it 2021 and weíre saturated with insane skating on the daily.

I will go out to say that lazer lip was the only trick i didn't like. I still think its a weird fit for toy but maybe thats what they need. Braden is cool too. Myles is my favorite on the roster. Now just revamp some of those graphics, get rid of the red bull beaning apparatus, and toy is looking good.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

The kid doing all the crazy 50-50s really blew my mind... he was barely hanging on to that huge kinked rail he did.

Dashawn's footage was absolutely insane too. He hauls ass and really commits to hard tricks on hard spots.

The edit overall was pretty meh to me, but the clips made up for that.

Threw that in the middle of his part like it was nothing. That looked super sketchy and stood out.
