Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Media Overload

Media Overload

12 Media Overload is a weird, dark, grainy full length skate video from Stuttgart's YAllA crew, shouts out to Europe. The video, filmed and edited by Christian Pelz & Ante Ljubicic is exactly what a skate video should be; rad and guaranteed to make you want to go skate. It's full of weird footage, the skating is creative, and while the editing is cool and something new, it's routed in its VHS style aesthetic. The soundtrack is awesome too, and perfectly adds to the dark vibes.

Jenkem described it as a '90s skate mixtape', which is fitting because it kind of feels like something some guy tricked you into buying on a street corner. The VHS thing has been done quite a bit recently, but the YAllA crew keep it fresh here. It's great to see people pushing old technologies to the next level. The short gun-shot/bail sequence makes the whole thing worth watching alone. I had that on loop, though I do wish I had to actually rewind it each time.

Check out some teaser screen caps, watch the full video, then go skate.
