Rejected Edits: April Fools?By Nick Lipton • Apr 3rd, 2011 • Category: Features, Latest, Rejected Edits, Videos
I’m so sick of, “Why are you hating? At least they’re out there boarding.” So what? This is snowboarding. It’s a fashion shit show and constant dick sucking contest to be the coolest. That’s why Rejected Edits exist. With no names, no flair and nothing to talk about these edits still get their 15 minutes. Plus, come on, this is Yobeat, it’s either this or we just make fun of Shaun White all the time.
Why it Sucks: GoPro’s and poles, it’s never going to be ok. Also, you guys slam a lot, and the lumberjack doesn’t have gloves on half the time. Gloves folks, they are your friend. As far as the video, the park shots are boring and stupid. I don’t care that you nailed a trick on some bullshit feature.
Why it’s Rad: Sweet nicknames, obviously. The random spot shots are great. The handplant to cartwheel slam, awesome. And oh yeah, slams, we love slams.
Why it Sucks: I hate fake sponsors. I highly doubt Electric paid to have this edit made. I also hate the intro music, and well, all the music. The smoking shot around :50, come on, is there any better way to claim, “I JUST GOT MY LICENSE!” Besides that stuff, some of these shots are just total crap, but hey, at least you’re out there, and I suppose that’s a good thing.
Why it’s Rad: Editing. Yeah sure it might be filthy, but it’s rad filthy. Chop and Screw, opps and uh… I’m into all of it. Plus with a title like “KKK” I would be lying if I said I wasn’t excited to see future titles.
Why it Sucks: Well, your music choice is for shit. Who kills the audio? The sweet sound of snow smashing should never be covered over. Also, what the fuck is with the ending? Holy shit, is this a teaser? Better not be…
Why it’s Rad: Content. Jumping off chairs is always cool. Powder is always cool. Cloudy winter days are awesome.
Why it Sucks: Hippies (read: dreads), slow groove tunes and two inch stances are not going to fly around these parts. Does that make me shallow? Bet your ass it does. But watching you slip and slide around the hill making sparks with your knees pisses me off. Oh, and the weed ender, cool, you smoke weed, so does my grandma.
Why it’s Rad: Well, simple really, the riding is rad. Even if it is on some bullshit park features.
