i'm legitimately blown away at how much the modern internet sucks

i pop open snapchat and its a bunch of soft core porn framed as "fitness inspiration", or literal harassment framed as "pranks"

go on reddit and "libertarians" are arguing about how Jan 6th is a non event, "if they really meant business nancy pelosi's head would be on a pike" ???

youtube feed always funnels me right wing insanity, doesn't matter what content you watch, that's where the algo leads you

search for shit on amazon and you get a bunch of wish.com level products with randomly generated product names

etc etc. wtf happened, how did the information superhighway devolve to this level, and what are the greater implications?

Why don't they make a beanie style hat out of cotton, like what a t shirt is made from. Watching sls people trying to give themselves brain damage wearing wool beanies in Arizona heat.

If skate companies made actual wool beanies theyíd be close to a deck in price. 99% if not 100% of skate beanies are cheap acrylic. Still warm but not like wool

Can confirm I wear beanies to keep my hair contained even in the CA heat.

Iím not cool enough for a slesh/daveed/wassup rocker headband
with my koston skate I go faster of the light

Wool/fake wool you know what I mean.
Yeah I also did the Jimbo Jones, Scandinavian snowboarder beanie on to control the hair in West Sydney summer(often one of the hottest places on the planet in summer) but then decided when I turned 30 that shit had to stop. Now can't stand when I see other people do it. Its probably mostly just me realising how stupid I must of looked for 15 years.

why donít female skaters do frontside flips.
i mean reynolds style. 8+ stairs.

also none of them are at the level yet of A.rin. She fucking rips, is tech,Ö

Hopefully Shane gives some pointers to Rayssa Leal on how to get tech.

I can't really think of females doing any flips down stairs recently apart from Mariah Duran hardflips in comps.

But I guess maybe because what's the point? Unless they do it down a 13+ they will just hear a bunch of "oh who cares so and so already did blah blah"

Uterine wall prevents full flick at that angle.  Itís physically impossible.

I wonder if a bootleg, unfinished version of that movie Rust will become a cultural touchstone like the Pamela Anderson sex tape was.

Wait what, is there actually a clip of it?

The best one I never saw was that dreamworld accident, this big round thing cunts were floating in flipped and four people came out and went in the belt
They drained the water and it was just carnage apparently, like something out of a movie just people still alive all jammed into a conveyor belt

Thereís a clip of that but they never released it, full saw the first ten seconds where they go into the water and donít come up but they never released the part where they drain the water and you see all the people in the belt

With all the old 80s,90s franchises they keep bringing back for tv, movies why the heck isn't Dino riders coming back.
Seriously it's humans riding dinosuars that are covered in laser blasters vs reptile alien people riding dinosaurs covered in laser blasters. It's way cooler than Jurassic Park, ghostbusters, Godzilla, power rangers.

To be fair to Dill, Roctakon is just as insufferable as he is, though less charming, and wrote a fairly bad book about skateboarding.

Like Less Than Zero in vibe/POV, sure. But writing-wise, not so much. I was hoping he would write another book after getting the ďlightly fictionalized stories about my friendsĒ novel out of his system because he has some talent and he seemed to understand that skating isnít just about skatingóIt feels like a skateboarding book, even though, as you said, ďhe just goes to Tompkins a few times.Ē That could lead to some interesting writing about the moments in-between, whether they be about skating or not.

We never left. It's like Hotel California round 'hurr.

I personally 'ended up at' realizing this place is a lot more enjoyable when you focus on the posts you agree with and don't give in to high-jacking threads in an attempt to prove some dumb point.
Wait till my father hears of this.

I think Americans might have a naturally shit ear for accents. Noticed this a few times over the last year or so watching podcasts worst being Christina P of your mom's house.
They hear someone talk, immediately identify it incorrectly and then do an impression of a completely different accent altogether.
It would be like if I watched the sopranos, and was like oh yeah they have that southern accent and then was like "ay ma bro, get me some like gabbagul" in a Cali surfer dude voice.

Gifted hater also just did it watching sls. Hear Rowley clearly sounding like the Beatles and within 2 seconds does an impression like a kid from Mary Poppins.

Don't disagree with you there. Kinda stopped listening to that group when the Chris Delia stuff started. Not that I care about Chris Delia but it just showed how fake they all are. It's our best friend Chris... News breaks.... We don't even know the guy

youtube tried to plug that podcast to me to no end and it comes on via autoplay while i'm winding out to some rocket league or something and it annoys me always so much i have to turn it off. seriously most podcasts done by so called comedians are unfunny as fuck. i actually blocked your moms house podcast and some other shit from appearing in my recommendations because that shit is so bad.

same shit with theo von. i'm always surprised when i find out these people are doing stand up or something comedic. their podcasts are never funny.

Comedians podcasts are kind of like skaters Instagrams. It's too much mediocre stuff. I personally can't watch any podcasts longer than maybe 3 months absolute max. It's just the same thing every week I wish they'd make a skit or an actual show. But I guess that doesn't make any money.
Also yeah Theo von is actual shit. I feel like he watched a Julian Barratt stand up in the 90s and was like oh I can just make shit up but doesn't have the quick thinking/flow to pull it off.
 Cumtown was pretty bad taste but they could fucking riff better than anyone I've ever heard. I've only listened to  maybe a dozen tho so I'm sure if I listened to it regularly I'd be over it well before I heard all 300 or whatever.

When people begin following whatever the current fashion trend is:

Are they cognitively aware that they are intentionally choosing to follow the trend?

Or is it subconscious?  They donít know why they want Big Boys and skater-waiters, they just woke up one day wantiní that shit real bad for some reason.
