Flip Flopper (In Socks)

The Badlands gets top billing from Real and their "Known Associates" contest, and while that's good stuff, the copy from the video's youtube page is that much better:
Coined 'The Badlands' by local skate eccentric Brian Markey when in 2007 he decided to get back on that proverbial skate horse after many years off. In search of something new 'n refreshing he came across an abandoned lot on the North side of Minneapolis' warehouse district and not that far off from the Mississippi river. Over the next few years the Badlands has become a lively and synergetic DIY work in progress involving many skaters and friends from the Twin Cities and beyond.

Click over to the video page for the full list of the cast of thousands that appear. Proper work dudes.

I should note that I heard about the video above via Platinumseagull's brand new Twitter account, so, if you are so inclined, go ahead and follow us. I'm also well aware that in the past I've talked plenty of shit on the Twitter, so yes, I flip flopped on the whole damn thing.

Someone should upload the "missing" Dolo Iota part that I'd previously thought had never happened. Just saying.
