A reasonably accurate recreation of Mini Video 22 from February 22, 2001. Nearly 20 years now.
I have the original web sized .mpg from 2001, and I found the raw footage on a Hi8 tape earlier this year. I put the old file in the timeline and overlaid the raw footage over it. The audio is original to the 2001 .mpg. Making the “cool” animations was more annoying than it should’ve been. But I persevered.
Comparison of today vs. 2001 web quality. People used to wait 20 minutes for videos that looked like this to download, and they loved it, damnit.
Anyway, back to the past. The crew wanted to skate. It was too snowy and cold in Milwaukee. I remembered a great plaza in Nashville I had skated once on the way to Florida a year or two before. Might as well drive the ten hours.
Here’s some contemporary supplemental content of Greg, Mike, and Ben skating the plaza.
