So much classic skateboarding…and the SLAM SECTION!
There is almost nothing better than watching Matt Hensley skate mini-ramp! Alphonzo Rawls where you at?!?!?!
In my opinion, H-Street’s Hokus Pokus is the most influential skateboarding video of all time. I was still pretty new to skateboarding in 1989, so the timing probably played a huge role for me, but there is no denying the very important part this video played in such a transitional time in the history of skateboarding. So, for the next 7 weeks, Time Capsule Thursdays will feature the entire Hokus Pokus video broken down into 7 parts. I am going to plug in my VCR and enjoy my VHS copy of it! So, here is part 1 of 7…enjoy!
Flogging Molly is playing at The Ritz Ybor tonight and after the show, The Bricks is hosting the Flogging Molly “Unofficial” After Party. Matt Hensley, Flogging Molly’s accordion player, also happens to be one of the most influential street skateboarders of all time…which gives me an idea for this week’s “Time Capsule Thursdays”.
