The Prescience of Denny

Fake links, disappearing links, and the policing of links have, in the big ticket event world of online skateboard videos, made it way more convenient to shell out $2.99 than seek illicit yet free viewings of such things as PRod's new video part (that's a real link to the pay-link). If I-tunes will make the Youtube star some money, I'm all for it. Here are a few observations, now that I'm $2.99 poorer:

-In the immortal words of Denny Green, the Paul Rodriguez is what we though they were. To put it in a way that makes sense, there are no revelations to be had about him in this video part. He's always going to skate So-Cal, he's always going to be polished, he's always going to look a little too perfect, and he's always going to do some truly bonkers stuff.

-While I'm no Kanye-lifer, the fact that this pay-to-play set up allows for real music to be used in a way that fits the skater, I'm all for it.

-He may have single-handedly brought back some kind of flip-in-flip-out game.

-He's cemented a nollie lateflip game. Prepare for a ton of poorly executed variations, coming to an internet near you.

-Where are the manuals?

Only after I bought it, I went to look on I-tunes to see if it was a best-seller. It is, number one in fact for seasons, though I'm not 100% sure if my purchase influenced that ranking.

Someone doesn't have their priorities straight if Dexter Season 4 is at the bottom there...

If "someone" refers to me, I had Dexter Season 4 on a hard drive right after it ended. My priorities might not be all in line, but they're from being bent.
