Berries of the Berries
« on: November 11, 2023, 07:29:43 PM »
At the beginning of the BATB livestream Berra and Koston announced this would be the last BATB at the current park. Then they played a commercial selling pieces of concrete from the park when they demo it. Word is they can't afford the current space anymore and are looking to move somewhere they can afford. End of an era.

For some reason I reckon Xenu would've had a fat fakie kickflip. Off big stuff like Wallenberg too..

Koston and Berra in the running for KOTY with this one.  Tricking children into paying for absolute trash just seems like pretty predatory behavior.  I suppose Mike Mo is behind it as well, but those two seem just entirely without shame at this point.

Possibly even more wack than the blood splattered Gator boards Select Skateshop put out for Halloween.

Berries was never my thing so could be wrong but could make sense if they built more of a street course that they could have comps at. Become a regular stop for sls or xgames etc or west coast Tampa rival, especially if being funded by cariuma

Absolutely would be the obvious thing. Sls x BatB the day before etc.

It sounds like they're broke and don't have a new spot yet tho.

These guys aren’t stupid, most likely they are looking to sell the building and move to a cheaper real estate location to re-flip in another 10 yrs

I didn't watch this live, and skipped Borra's waffling. What he say?
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.

Agreed, nothing is quite as tasteless by comparison, but I think from the standpoint of taking advantage of their audience, it’s nearly as tacky.

Is it not what every brand does ? Turning audience into customers ? 50 euros for a shirt or a hat you don't need is the same as selling a piece of the berrics. if some dumb cali skaters wants to own a piece of the berrics that's their problem.

Yeah for sure, but I guess to me it’s about the people who aren’t in California - who never got to skate this park, and are now paying for a cement scrap of these rich dudes’ sponsored hangout spot - just seemed super sad to me.  Viewed in sequence with all the other soulless cash grabs they’ve done over the years and lately, it feels like a new low.

Hilarious to go from pawning NFT's in 2022 to selling jackhammered pieces of concrete floor on eBay in 2023

They rented that spot. And it was very expensive.

So… the “Freedom” mentioned  in the BATB XIII title is referencing the end of the lease for that warehouse, and being free from that oppressive financial burden.  Sure: it made sense when the Berries was a going concern & even later, when Herp Burst was paying their rent, but now that they’re grasping at the last strands of relevancy they can can reach, as their Xenu adjacent overlord, Cumorama, prepares to abandon their financial “sponsorship” of the Berries & even the skate-shoe game altogether, after Q4 numbers plummeted when brand ambassador & Eminem look-alike, Taylor Pedersmith failed (again) to produce a BATB victory for the brand.
Have I got that right?

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

I’m not into collecting (or Berries), but wouldn’t a parallel be like sports fans getting a piece of an old stadium that was being torn down?
In that regard it makes sense to me, but again, blah blah blah whatevs.

In a world with an increasing distaste for physical clutter in one’s home, IE we’re not boomers buying homes to fill with crap like previous generations with China cabinets and such, where does all this collectible stuff stand? Like who wants this stuff? Along with the implosion of NFTs

Man Berra still on that melodramatic tip, they’re rocks dude.

Mike Mo kooked it When he started selling NFT Pokémon cards.

Dude kooked it super hard when he left all his Starbucks trash at the Courthouse when there were signs begging people to keep it clean as the City of LA was on the fence about allowing us to skate there long term.

I was over him from that day forward. Alec Beck worked hard for the Courthouse to become a no bust spot, it is a huge part of skate culture, and he put it at risk because he was too lazy to carry his trash back to the car.
