If you know the story about these two guys I doubt there is any benefit in the movie. I came in as a lay person and found it really interesting as I always thought Tony Hawk was the main guy (so I was marketed) in Skate boarding.

There are plenty of very talented skaters out there, but Hawk is a freak of nature, he just doesn't fall off. I've seen him at demos and comps and, although he's probably skating within himself at those events, he's unbelievably consistent. The ability range within pro skaters is pretty wide, went to a Plan B demo years ago and they where virtually booed off, very good on film but crap in person. But then a few weeks later I saw Gonz and Cardiel on a different tour and they where fuckin brilliant. I'd guess if those two where winning comps, they where very good, as you have to have that consistency to put together winning runs.

Just watched All This Mayhem - really good movie. Not touched a stake board since I was 10 but still thought it was a good hour and 40 minutes

Hadn't heard anything about this, just watched the trailer, and had forgotten about the train / bridge jump. Boss. Although not that arsed about watching the rest of it.

I heard it for the first time around the year 2000. I'm so sorry…

Yeah, didn't hear it until about 98, in JPs house if I remember correctly. Fell in love with CD2 straight away.

Yes mate, I think it was at my house -

I've been thinking on this, I think was actually at James and Ross's place, but it was your CD, it was after we'd all been out somewhere, Feel? And I'm not sure it's not the night I asked James to get me a Kit Kat Chunky from the 24 hour and he came back with some Chunky Kitty Kat.

One sure fire way to look a complete cunt is to wear an oversized, 'look at me, look at me', ugly arsed, garish watch. Swerve at all costs.

Bad times, can't think of page three without thinking about bad journalism and an all time favourite:

Scrap that, if she's willing to get her metal wings there's probably very few places she won't go, you could get up to some proper off the scale weirdness with her. Basically, a keeper.

The only upshot of breaking myself playing rugby or skateboarding, was then going out drinking on crutches, got loads of sympathy action over the years....

...not sure it works if your in a wheel chair though.

Can't do the Bedrock party now, so might do this instead. It's been a while since I've been to Fabric...

Look at that Edward, you've got the whole board playing nice and sharing there stories of pain and discomfort.

I had a large tubigrip covering my abdomen and chest when I broke mine

Yeah, one of these.

Yeah, but there a small fortune and already rough around the edges for the most part.

Putting mixes together is basically no fun anymore when you have to use Beatport. Listening to all the dross is a chore and not a pleasure.

Too much wing wang before dancing to the birdie song?

Stay still / lie down lots, smash the pain killers, and be glad it's not something wrong with your back, which movement wise is similar but generally lots lots worse. If it's really bad, you have a go at one of those large elastic / velcro girdle jobs from boots, you'll look like a complete plum both buying it and wearing it, and you'll have to ditch the extreme scoop necks, but it'll restrict the movement a bit.

I was thinking the same, but all tracks given the S&D remix treatment!

Erm, no, no fuckin way. There about as perfect as you will ever get them, especially NE2 disk1, just re release them as they are. I just want a fresh copy as mine are battered.

Okay, but only if they're really big!

If it makes you any happier Rob, I have nearly 15 pages in my hold bin and I regularly do £100 in a month on Beatport.

And no, I won't be camping out for a game or anything else for that matter, not even free tits.

Thats that fucked off then.

You can play it SP if you want but it's been designed from the ground up to be an MP game - even the president of Bungie said so.

Hmmmmmm. Might swerve it, just wish there was more out for it at the mo.

Yeah, went once about 3 years ago, still my fave festival.

It has to be said, I've got a bad feeling about it TBH - everything I've seen so far points to it being a lukewarm experience

How so?

Grant wrote:

It's a particularly cheap day to advertise on for starters. And they get to launch in relative silence from other entertainment offerings ie Music on Monday, Films Wednesday/Friday etc

The ads have been running all week, it that sense the release day doesn't make any odds.

I appreciate what your saying about the other entertainments, but for people picking it up, or staying up to get it at midnight and the like, it seems a shit choice.

Walter, what games do you recommend for the PS4?

Dunno dude - haven't bought a next gen console yet as I've got no time anymore since the bairn turned up.

I'll be going for a PS4 though - Destiny is the next big game (out today I think) so that could be worth a look - cost 500 million to make and market so it better sell gangbusters....

500 million? Thats fuckin mad! I remember seeing an interview with the guy who made Fez, just him and his mate, and he said the last COD took 5 years and a 1000 people to make it, hence why Fez took a while to release etc.

There first mistake is having the launch on a Tuesday? Who the fuck launches anything on a Tuesday?
