The Couch Potato #5

It’s been an amazing month for feature length videos being uploaded to the web. From classic Creature flicks to the latest Bones video, Girl and Chocolate b-side remixes to the beautiful work of Chris Mulhern’s latest Philly project, March has offered a solution to the seriously freezing weather that we have outside here in the UK.

Get the teas on, get your feet up and get ready for this month’s selection of long playing skate vids.

THE PHILADELPHIA PROJECT

Chris Mulhern returns with another incredible video production, this time looking back to the good old days of Philadelphia. Inspired by nostalgia from the deep history of skateboarding there over the years and a military program from 1943, Mulhern’s vision is simply sent back in time to feature the skills of Mark Suciu, Ricky Geiger, Ishod Wair, Jordan Trahan, Devon Connell, Fred Gall, Matt Reason, Ricky Oyola and many more. An absolute must watch.

BONES WHEELS – NEW GROUND

The brand new Bones Wheels video was released a couple of week’s back as a free download. It’s here in its entirety and stuffed full of amazing skateboarding from Jaws, Randy Ploesser, Ryan Decenzo, Marty Murawski, Chad Bartie, David Gravette, and Adam Dyet, Jake Duncombe, Ronnie Creager, Jimmy Cao, John Motta and many more.

DOG – GIRL AND CHOCOLATE ‘B-SIDES’

The Tennyson Corporation have re-edited Pretty Sweet’s B-sides and made a tasty new offering coming in at 37 mins. This edit features an off the wall Koston part, plenty of footage of the rest of the Girl team. Recommended viewing.

STEREO SKATEBOARDS – A VISUAL SOUND

Released in 1994 this classic flick featuring Chris Pastras, Jason Lee, Mike Daher, Greg Hunt, Mike Frazier, Matt Rodriguez and Ethan Fowler is one of the most influential videos of all time. Watch it online here.

GREYSCALE

Cuong Ngo’s Grayscale video has over 20 minutes of East Coast street skating featuring Boston scene and beyond. Pick it up on DVD here.

IN CRUST WE TRUST

Shot and edited by Wes Van Heest, this upbeat 37 minute long player was filmed across spots in New Jersey with the Stimulus and Stay Stackin’ crews.

CREATURE – BORN DEAD

The first full length Creature video ‘Born Dead’ from 2006 is online with sections from Al Partanen, Alex Horn, Cody Boat, Darren Navarrette, David Gravette, Drew Potter, John Ponts, Josh Perkins and Sam Hitz. Hesh to the hilt.

PUKRID

‘Skate ‘Til you Puke’ have uploaded a 30 minute video featuring The Lifeblood and Independent Euro teams as they roll around Europe’s parks and street spots.

MINUS RAMPS – TRUE INSPIRATION

Find a disused pool or ditch. Clean it up and skate it. Some members of Minus Ramps and General Sherman´s Floats show you just how gnarly DIY life can be. In the first two weeks of February this year, spots in Los Angeles, San Diego and El Centro were found and sessioned. This edit features the work of Chad “JR” Leblanc, William “Soup” Campbell, Chris Cope, Landjunge “JP” Kraus, Sam Hitz and many more. The ender is ridiculous.
