A re-imaging of some earlier wiskate content. As a point of reference, this is what the “demos” page on wiskate looked like 20+ years ago:
Blue Building. My Hi8 tapes that span a time frame of roughly 1998-2000. I tried to not reuse the “famous” clips that I’ve dredged up and posted in various places in the past. I hope you catch a vibe. A lot of it is awful in my favorite way. The best times with my high school skate crew. A lot of feelings involved.
The titular Blue Building was a structure at Heiderich Greenhouses. My friend Mark grew up there, and the greenhouse business was out back from his house. Whenever winter hit, we always had a place to skate.
Features Josh Ellis, Mark Heiderich, Pat Gaynor, Ben Vance, Boban, and more.
“Mega ramp this!!!” The 43rd document. Originally posted April 10, 2008.
It appears to feature footage from both the fall of 2007 into spring 2008. Nothing much from the winter in between. I don’t think we were such gluttons for cold air punishment back then. Instead, to pass the winter, we spent our time playing Rock Band on the Xbox 360, texting on flip phones (T9 Mode), wondering what was going to happen on “Breaking Bad”, and probably other various mid to late 2000s activities.
Originally posted Nov 2, 2007. I never really actually liked this one that much. I think it’s the song. Have I convinced you to watch it?
The chronology is a bit confused as this video features footage filmed that came from before Mini Video 40. Why didn’t I use it in that one? I don’t know. Maybe the song was too short. Or maybe I forgot to capture an older tape. Who can say?
This is a “problem” because I’ve already used up some of the photos that should’ve been used on this post instead. Scroll back to get yourself up to speed.
As a special point of interest, this is the very last video I ever edited on a PC.
To summarize, more of the same, but a little different. Can I keep the ball rolling? I apologize in advance, it’s difficult.
The 40th Mini Video. The file “date created” is October 1, 2007, which is the same date as the last video, and doesn’t exactly seem correct. But what do I know? It seems as if this one was filmed from around May to September. I think it took sort of a long time because I was trying to focus more on shooting photos.
Update! Gabe was kind enough to send me the footage of the criminal beer fueled backside disaster.
I realized I end these types of posts very abruptly, so I guess we’ll go with a “’til next time…”.
“Hey, y’all wanna kick it with Pizzy?!?!” Originally posted Oct 1, 2007. This one is novel in approach as it was all filmed in one weekend. 9/22 to 9/23 2007. George Bush was still president.
I don’t know why I remember this, but this is the same weekend that Brooks Schuping from Louisville was in town and he executed what, as far as I know, is the first documented “off the top rope” at the US Bank Hubba. Uncle Will was there and captured it on his Canon Elph.
Since the time frame covered by the video took place only over a weekend, we’re quite limited in related media.
