My favorite Vallely related endeavor was By The Sword.
Primarily because it’s life span was so short that I didn’t have to suffer it for long.
Anybody ever notice that pretty much every new company announce he has made over the years starts with “I’ve always wanted to do a company where the creative vision was my own, and blah, blah, blah, etcetera…”?
Does he really become that disenchanted with his own creative vision that fast?
What gives, Michael?
Also, I almost feel bad for those four random ocks; you think they had any idea what they were stepping to?

SLAP is a pants message board that sometimes talks about skateboarding

I have a theory that the reason Mike V starts so many companies is that you can only claim losses on 3 years for a business. So, 2-3 years, pocket the tax break, close up shop, start new company, rinse, repeat.

RIP to a real off shore account kinda dude.

Yeah, the Street Plant shit is huge among a certain type of 45+ skater. Mike V is totally still selling his personality and there are dudes still eating it up.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

Didn't know accell was his.
One time a sister bought a skateboard at a garage sale for like $10 and gave it to me. It was a red Santa Cruz Ron Whaley with destroyer trucks and like 58mm Mike v accell wheels it was basically brand new but only like 7.75 so I just gave it some kid at the skatepark. Maybe dumbest thing I ever did.
Mike v might also be my favourite skater that's also my least favourite person (apart from murderers etc) all time parts https://youtu.be/m6ye3LN_gpk

Mike V's greatest hits is the correct answer. One of the all time greatest pieces of skate media. Considering who he was vs who he has become, and just the absurdity of the tape in general, it's really a fucking masterpiece. like it or not, its pretty funny that it even exists.
.....Nah

Mike V out-cringes himself with each phase of his career.  I can’t wait to see what’s next

It's funny but you're laughing at it not with it. I think it says a lot that at that same time the "toughest" skater didn't take up boxing or any real type of martial art but chose to be part of some budget show wrestling

All of this is very true, and adds to the enjoyment factor. Something like this couldn't be made today. Certainly not from a big name pro anyway. Aside from the random fighting with security guard clips you see here and there, who else has done anything like this? Weck had a singular clip of him hitting some dude in that part he put out, which is like one instance from one oddball in the skate community.

The dude was on fucking powell and etnies, he was in the tony hawk games, and has a self titled vhs of him doing bonelesses and punching strangers, with commentary, and had the nerve to call it his "greatest hits".
.....Nah

Mike V's skating from back in the day is great - Public Domain, Rubbish Heap, Speed Freaks etc. Actually even quite liked his Suburban Diners part.
When I met him (1991) he was a total clown and I went straight home and took his poster off my wall (that'll show him, I said!)

Here's a real nice picture of Mike. Let it light you up inside.

Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Television was pretty sick.

Mike V Powell with Gershon, Jahmal Williams, and Mike Santarossa was a pretty good iteration.

The Hangover and the beat down of 4 random ocks were top notch.

Other than that, Mike V is lost on today.

Street Plant has been around a minute and I’m pretty sure it’s just him in his garage. He moved to Iowa. He seems pretty content if social media is to be believed. I say let the man be happy. Literally everyone in skate boarding is or has been a fucking kook at some point.
