Please Rate 5* Favourite & Comment! Lets get this video noticed! =) Lyrics: Dear Lily Allen, Remember when you pretended, Lily, that you were truly independent, Lily? Faking like you made it all alone but you were legally with Regal, part of Parlophone - oh yes. So when you lectured me, I thought I'd fileshare my thoughts on your mp3, Lily. Now first I must sing your praises - I love your singing but I'll just say this: I saw on your myspace pages saying filesharing's a new ice age, but the industry's a recent innovation - music's been alive, thriving since cavemen. Folk songs so long have had a place in communities that you should be amazed at it. Then one day came intellectual property, meaning if I think a thought, you can't copy me. And if honesty's the best policy, I'd say songs are better off without this monopoly. It'd blatantly be a major fail if they'd patented the major scale. And downloads don't equate to sales, so taking them away won't make me pay up - just procludes me from sending your tunes to my friends, so we all lose in the end. You lose potential fans and we lose respect for the fact that you're desperate for cash. But what do you expect from the lass who's collecting a fat bank cheque from the man, while her fans are collecting the glasses for minimum wage they'll spend on her tracks? Now please don't be offended, Lily; I think your new cd's splendid, Lily. Everybody's at It and it's Not Fair, I Could Say, The Fear was Him but He wasn't There so let's ...
Check the video description for more than you wanna know! Skate session from last night (as of this writing): April 25, 2009. This is yet another after-hours collection of clips from X-Plex skatepark in Springfield, Louisiana. During the week I skate a lot of different spots, but Ive been hitting X-Plex every Saturday lately, and after the park closes the owner (Shane) has been letting me eat into his own time by documenting some stuff Ive been working on so big ups to Shane for that! Some video and video-related info: Half of this video is of me falling. I like including decent fall-down clips in my videos because taking a beating from your board is a very important part of skateboarding its the thing that weeds out the lifers from the trend whores. None of the slams in this video are cringe-inducing or bad or anything, but one or two of em are throbbing right now, and I LOVE IT. Its not that I like pain, I just like the fact that me and my board can go out, get beat up, then go back and do it some more. Like Jason Jesse said Im paraphrasing from memory), I love falling down, I love getting hurt, I love it all. I feel sorry for people that dont get to experience the equivalent of thrill that we do as skaters (you motorcross and BMX guys know the feeling). All of us have tapped into a form of fun that most people will never understand sucks to be them. About the manual pad-thingy on the quarterpipe: The ramp is like 3 ½ feet I think (if not, its pretty close). The slanted ...
