1991′s Blind “Video Days” is undoubtedly one of skateboarding’s most legendary videos. I watched that video over and over and over again, watching a video like “Video Days” was part of many skateboarders’ “pre-skate” routine in those days. The skateboarding is amazing, even in a time in skateboarding history when the whole industry was fledgling. But, what is also just as intriguing, is some of the other history that this video holds. “Video Days” was the first movie/ video that Spike Jonze directed, and was instrumental in launching his directing career. Also, Jason Lee’s impromptu song at the end of his part in “Video Days” caught the eye of Kevin Smith, director of Clerks, which then earned Jason Lee a part in Mallrats, launching Jason Lee’s acting career…and the rest is history. Finally, the song in Jason Lee’s part that we were all super-stoked on, but none of us in those days could get our hands on, because there was no “Internet”. Well, that song is “Knife Song”, by Milk. Milk, was a band that was founded by Jeff Tremaine, the co-creator of a little show called Jackass…maybe you’ve heard of it? Obviously Blind “Video Days” is a very important part of the history of skateboarding…and apparently Hollywood also!
