FOLLY from HELLFEST 2004 is up on hate5six.comand YouTube. Soundboard recordings were lost over the years, so the big challenge with editing these sets is trying to work with the audio directly from the different cameras. Better than nothing. Catch them this Saturday in NJ at BACK TO SCHOOL JAM 2018. I'm shooting a wedding that day but @feetfirstproductions will be on hand to document the fest. Huge thanks to Highroller Studios for giving me the opportunity to work on this "lost" footage from Hellfest 2001/2004. Viewers who support hate5six on Patreon are making it possible for me to finally work on digitizing and editing 500 tapes for this project.
First time skating on the trail at the Rex Plex. It was pretty smooth so I felt way more comfortable practicing my jumps and speed skating. I was going pretty fast for a minute, I forgot how much longer it takes to slow down with my moxi wheels and nearly missed my turn. Eventually, I ended up at the roundabout and decided to skate a few laps. It's a great place to practice cross overs. So I'm in love. I don't ever make it to the rink and being on hiatus from derby has made it hard to get in this type of skating. It's also the only place in the city I don't have to battle any hills. I give it a perfect 5/7
Sometime in 2004, somewhere on Myspace.com, somebody I met through Frontside Skate Shop [RIP] interviewed me about my path in skateboarding to that point.
These are some of the best questions/answers I could screenshot into one image that really sums up where my head was at back then.
I’m kinda impressed with my young self’s outlook and hope I have made the kid who was answering these questions proud.
Throw back Thursday....the best night of skateboarding I've ever had. My dad drove @coryarmbrecht @incognitotrain & @nryanbelson down to the Rex-Plex in Jersey for an @wordoflife event. We watched some pro boxing first then spent the night skateboarding. My brother made me take the first trip down the ramp into the park. I was never a good skateboarder but I rode up onto a picnic bench and successfully dropped off without bailing. It was a sign for the night. We rode till almost 2AM and had the most fun I think any of us had skateboarding in that point of our lives. #throwbackthursday#tbt#skateboarding#rexplex#jersey#nj
"New Tag Champs"
Location: Black Room
Edge: Aron and I sit in a room with a two steel chairs and a spot light as we grin at each other. "Aron and I have reviewed violent airs comments about Open Fight Night and everything that has been stated is completely false!" I slap Aron on the back in a friendly way
Rex: •I grin at edge and then begins to speak•
"Violent Air says their the best tag team in the tag team division which is the biggest lie and funniest thing I or edge have ever heard in our lives."
Edge: "Aron and I will make our debut into the tag team division and we will undoubtedly be the best tag team in history and I don't care was Violent air thinks because at the end of the day Aron and I will be unhooking the championships and I will continue my undefeated TLC Streak with my best friend Aron! " grins at Aron
Rex: •grins at edge and I begin to speak•
"You see Violent Air I know I have no experience in this kinda match but me and edge are so close and best of best friends that we know what each one of us is thinking at any moment of time like right now, edge is thinking about some Rated R stuff and becoming Tag Team Champions with me."
"Edge and me don't have chemistry as a team like you two wannabes but honestly we don't care because we know that with out a doubt in our minds we are the best tag team Because we're the best of friends!" •slaps edge on the back•
Edge: "It doesn't matter that you are not as experienced in this Aron because before that match begins I'll give you some tips to the match to ensure our win! Aron we might not have chemistry yet but wait till we hit open fight night when #RatedRScholars Is trending number 1 world wide and at number 2 will be #NewRawTagTeamChampions " nods at Aron subtlety
Rex: "You know what Edge your right bro about all that #RatedRScholars at number one world wide and at number two #NewRawTagTeamChampions but let's be honest edge Violent Air isn't even a good tag team because outside of warriors their not even friends"
Edge: "Inside and out of warriors they're nothing, this match at Open Fight Night we will put them on the match as the ones that fell to The Rated R Scholars!!!
"A New Team"
Location: In the Warriors Ring
"Hello, Warriors universe I am out here to talk about open fight night where me and Edge aka The Rated R Scholars go 2 on 2 against Violent Air for the Raw Tag Team Titles!" "Now, I might be out matched in tlc but my partner is the master of the tlc match and the World Heavyweight champion and former intercontinental and United States champion!"
"I'm here to be a champion and to prove to all the haters I'm good enough to be here in Warriors so, Violent Air let me tell wants going to happen at Open Fight Night their will be broken tables, ladders and chairs their will be blood their will be Chair shots to the back and head and gut, their will be ladder bending from each other slamming each other into them, their will be tables exploding because of Rexplexs and Spears and Air Sydals and whatever O'Reilly does!"
"Just know The Rated R Scholars will walking in as a new tag team with no chemistry at all with each other but we'll be walking out as the best darn tag team on Raw and if you idiots don't know what I'm talking about let me dumb it down for you!" •says slowly•
"Me and edge are walking out as Raw Tag Team Champions!"
"You don't need chemistry as a tag team to be tag team champions me and edge have been friends for months now, and we both know exactly what each other is thinking at everything moment each you two don't have!"
"You two just go nuts nut thinking of what could happen while me and edge are always thinking the same thing and our friendship is what made us decide to make a tag team!"
"There's nothing more powerful then a friendship as a tag team because you always know you'll have your friends back!"
"Unlike Violent Air who really only care about being tag team champions and I honestly believe O'Reilly has and will always be in the shadow of his partner Matt Sydal while me and Edge are equal I'm not his shadow and his not in my shadow."
"Violent Air's because weakness is they don't have the friendship me and Edge have no, and they never will because they don't care about each other the only reason they do is because their champions." •smiles•
"Actually, I think O'Reilly only cares about Sydal...
