I had an idea for a ďtry to write like boil the oceanĒ thread but decided against making it.  So fuck it, this is what I got:

And as we, watchers of board snaps and clackers of keyboards, begin 2021 much like the erstwhile homies, denizens of the backgrounds of bangers and hammers and sundry, wait and watch for signs of life from the practitioners of the flip-in flip-out arts, we ponder the eternal question: to pee a marble or poop a softball?

I had to dig kinda hard to find it so I would feel bad outing the person that maybe mistakenly dropped such a juicy hint :)

But I have to say your and Art Hellman's exchange below was mad interesting. Could the Pilot Light be responding in this very thread? 😮

i coulda sworn there was a Slap Pal that delved deep into trying to find BTO's identity a few years ago using IP addresses and a friend that worked for Wordpress and ended up matching up some of the prose to a thesis written by some teaching assistant who was a doctorate candidate in lymnology.  i've been using the search function to look it up, but interestingly enough, all the posts appear to have been deleted.  I think his early academic work was based on how some lakes were actually cooking the marine life... and there was some pic of his research station with a waterlogged Joey Pepper Aesthetics board in the corner.

Maybe too young but could Aron Lawrence from RadRat be BoilTheOcean. He strikes me as a different personality style... but he is quite knowledgeable and articulate as well.

From how the person writes I always felt it was a Canadian or someone from a boarding state. There is plenty of mention of having love for Canadian skaters on the blog. Either way, great blog and even better on the person for being able to cover their tracks for so long!

Kinda bugs me that I still canít figure out who Pilot Light is. I think I narrowed it down to him being an older Millennial thatís either a television writer or some hip-hop journalist.

Edit: I think I figured it out, a little underwhelming if Iím correct but it checks out.

Been reading BTO for about a decade now. Grateful that the author is still going, whoever he/she is.
