Good post. Always digged Jahmal`s flow and style. Totally forgot that he was on Television for a minute. The shot for the ad is so early 90`s: Massive baggy pants, 38 mm wheels and the Puma`s. Dark days for sk8ing. But when I look at the Lenny Kirk thing?! Wow, he is still a complete nutter. Dig that Kalis seems to care for him. Respect to that loyalty between old-new team and room mates.

Does anyone remember the name of the company that turned into Infamous? They were from Vermont—I think—and they published Fridge magazine, a terrible Strength rip-off. The board company itself was a Zoo rip-off.

Jahmal was good. I thought he'd get his due on ADI before it fizzled.

That Television ad is so 1992! The kit... the gear...

I'd love to get a Hopps board. Never seen one in person.

Underachievers part was nice.
