Your Edit Is Just Not That Good
There’s a reason amongst certain circles it’s referred to as the NoPro instead of GoPro. You know you’ve been on the chairlift and seen someone who is mediocre at best, riding around either with it on their helmet looking like a unicorn with down syndrome or attached to their wizard wand waving it at the person in front of them like they’re going to magically cast a curse of rail destruction. You might have even shook your head while asking yourself, “who the fuck would watch that?” Sadly some of these people get the great idea that showing their edits to the world will make everyone be in awe of their skills. This is not the case and the reason Yobeat has Rejected Edits by Jerm.
As this site has shifted more to posting edits, webisodes, and full parts we too have now been forced to watch craptacular filming skills with mediocre riding. It’s in watching these video tidbits that we have to validate whether it’s worth the time to post an edit or just ignore it. Occasionally I will leave some constructive criticism masked under the harsh truth that isn’t sugar coated or ‘Real Talk‘ as it’s known amongst those in the know. It’s in using this real talk that sometimes those with weak mental fiber can’t take the harsh realities set forth and sometimes try to engage in a battle of wits. I encourage you to see how one pro rider and his little lackey should not have presented themselves when dealing with the real truth.
Now as you can see I’m not necessarily hating it just stating the truth the song is painful and the riding was meh. But I’ll let you judge it for yourselves.
And as I suggested Yobeat might be a better place to send it to as they have more experience with rejecting edits. Having angry undertones is somewhat implied due to the namesake of this very website and anyone with deductive reasoning should comprehend this. At this point one of the other riders in said edit decided to step into the thunderdome for some mental fencing.
Notice how heated he is that all I said was the song sucked and the riding was meh. But like a good mentor to the young he has to go defend not only this bad edit, but his friend and his riding. I’m sorry that I live in a town called Breckenridge where good riding happens on the daily and that I will not further damage my hearing through listening to music that sounds like a cat has been shoved up an elephants ass while being sodomized with a weed-whacker.
I’m pretty sure stating that the edit was for their ego’s was why he wanted me to watch it, but good on you Collin. Strange I’ve lived in Colorado about 7 years and I’ve never heard of you either. Then again I don’t go to Echo because it’s like going to the 90′s only with more lame asses that can’t ride a real park and since there isn’t enough Chernobyley to power my hot tub it’s just not going to happen. Once again anger is not hate it’s two separate emotions remember to differentiate these please. Although I did offer to send this edit to Yobeat’s Rejected Edits to let the professor of edit grading himself Jerm dictate if it would pass or fail on the stoke scale.
Is it really ballsy to film with a GoPro and upload it to YouTube? Back in the day we used this format called VHS and would take it to our local shop where we would physically interact with people and be criticized. It was far more ruthless than this Internet thing we all use nowadays. Cool you had the best season of your life, but how many seasons is that? Comparing your best season to more than half a life time of my best seasons or those of anyone else might not hold any merit. As far as being a dick perhaps it’s just the nature of this very website or the fact I was making astute observations about snowboarding that differ from your own.
After pointing out a few funny facts mainly the riding was sub par, filming was whatever, and the song well I don’t need to go into the song the comment about a 10 inch spike nail drives home the point, this kid went for nuclear melt down by going for the name drop. This could possibly be one of the worst things you can do when you are a nobody in snowboarding and trying to act bigger than an entity that is larger than your microcosm of snowboarding.
Am I too good for your edit? Obviously not it got posted in this article along with your social interactions. Congratulations instead of taking criticism something we all will have to take throughout our lives you instead decided to get butt hurt and throw out the threat of telling the marketing director of your friends sponsor about this. I’m sure he’s not too stoked on this and I might even get an angry email asking me to take this story down but for comedies sake and the fact that life lessons sometimes need to be taught the hard way this will remain.
Oh and if you want to see a good edit with a pro rider I’ll use Anthony “Crowbar” Corbo he also rides for Never Summer, kills it, understands criticism and that he’s a marketing tool for his sponsors. You have a long way to go kid before you should engage in social interactions with media entities or make any threats.
