Harbor scene

Recently dogged by the notion that familiarity breeds contempt, FACEBOOK! guided me to a short skate video that's been on the internet for two months, and salvation.

Mike Rapaich's Male Talent, set in that strange confluence of hills, college and industrial rot, Duluth, starts out hard with a nice Red Tube allusion and provides new spots and new skaters (yo, I know Justice Simmons, full disclosure). Highlights of the video include Duluth, super-kid Carter Nguyen and Stephen Pestalozzi, along with everyone else. It's a departure from Lake Superior harbor scene that I knew from a decade and more ago: Pocket Park, the library and Jack Boyd, et. al. Watch.
