What does "awake" mean (Venture trucks)?
« on: August 25, 2020, 06:36:28 PM »
Yeah yeah I know, I've got two posts and I'm already making threads, but cut me some slack, I've been reading this shit for years and only just posted now.

So what does "awake" mean in all the Venture ads/shirts/etc? That shit has perplexed me since I was a kid.

Thanks in advance, Shalom, and so on....

My guess has always been that "you are asleep if you are riding X trucks", thus you are now "awake with Venture".

Always liked that logo design. Never been into "always on the grind".

Itís like a Rothko.  You gaze into it and it reveals itself to you.  A secret between two strangers.  The observed and the observer.  What you see in it is not what I see in it.  And the ultimate tragedy is that we can never explain it to another because human language, with our old, dead, clumsy, empty symbols, was never designed to convey the transcendent.  And so we each die alone, incapable of ever truly expressing our deepest thoughts and emotions to one another no matter how hard we try.

Either that or they just thought it looked cool on a t-shirt.

It's implying that you were sleeping on Venture..but now that you have tried them, you are "awake" to the fact that you are riding the best trucks ever made..well except for Indys of course.

Just kidding I have been riding Ventures since before you were born...

Wasn't it "awake with Venture" or something? Like... awaken to the trucks that are Venture

Can't argue that! I saw his low post count and strange lashing out at me and I did some soul searching. I'm willing to bet he reached out for my attention under a different username in the past, and unfortunately I did not give him adequate attention. I apologize.
