Superhero Wields Wind Powers At Skatepark

by The Editors on April 11, 2019

The above footage from the security camera at the Suisun Rotary skatepark in Fairfield, California purports to show a common dust devil, but who are they kidding. This is rare footage of a superhero wielding his wind powers to destroy. As skaters roll away, notice how he puts his arms out, and begins to spin pulling in a raging tornado of power strong enough to rip the roof off the restroom? When he walks away the wind stops. Hopefully, he can get these powers under control and use them for good in the future. . . and maybe work his magic somewhere else.

How To Do Something You Should Never Do

by The Editors on March 6, 2019

There is nothing in this “how-to” video that anyone should ever do. Like ever. That hasn’t stopped Xavier De La Rue from pretending that with the proper step-by-step instructions you too can safely bomb icy death chutes in the French Alps just like he does. Seriously, don’t do any of this. But watch it, because it’s always good to see Xavier straight-lining vertical hockey rinks without dying. Isn’t it?

Glory Hole Not Skateable For Awhile

by The Editors on February 28, 2019

Looks like NorCal fullpipe skaters will be waiting awhile before launching any missions to the world famous Glory Hole, as the lake behind the dam is pretty full right now. Sidetone: we laugh every time we see the mainstream media calling it “the Glory Hole.”

Monday Morning Music: Bob Mould

by The Editors on February 4, 2019

Who better to expose the surveillance state than Bob Mould with Lost Faith.

“There’s a hint of migration, a dash of border security and a whisper of government surveillance, climaxing across the multicolored canvas of an abandoned NSA listening station perched atop the highest hill in Berlin,” Bob told NPR. “But at the end of the day, it’s a high-end music video for a catchy, inspirational, uplifting pop song.”

Agreed.

The Homes Brigade: Hawk & McGill

by The Editors on January 22, 2019

Tony Hawk and Mike McGill are together again to help flat-fee real estate company Home Bay move some units. Home Bay’s CEO couldn’t be happier, according to a story on Inman.com.

Home Bay CEO and chairman Ken Potashner says the ad has caused an “explosion” in interest from consumers excited to take advantage of Home Bay’s automated process and the subsequent savings that average a little over $15,000, according to the company, which presently operates in California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Texas and Colorado.

Okay. Seems like a pretty good idea. And it’s always good to see skaters act (bummer Lance couldn’t make it). Not sure if Realtor’s will go extinct or not, but we’re pretty certain no one is going to miss them.
