Scumpire Reviews Dayshapes

WWW.SCUMPIRE.COM says:

"If you're looking for a skate video to get you juiced off dudes with no t-shirts, bare chested, doing there thing 'out there', you're watching the wrong video. But once you're done polishing your missile to bros' spinning into oblivion, clean the jizz off your tummy, wash your dirty Dorito-stained hands and call your homies up for a skate roadtrip to the next nearest town with some obstacles you don't normally skate with some homies you don't always see. And be sure to pop in Dayshapes for that inspiration on your way out the door or in the car DVD player.

Erik Bill brings you the latest installment of the NDN video series. Among excellent blading from the likes of himself, Utah's Cameron Card and Jeff Stanger, powerhouse Erik Bailey and some of Bill's Idaho homies he incorporates some music you most likely don't have in your music library. Pick this up on Blu Ray to get some of that hip HD goodness. There are some clips that could use some correct exposure, but fuck I could give two shits about how it looks as long as the skating is on point.

I would like to think the underlying message from Bill to you the viewer, is something like "good times with good homies." And if you don't like it, well tough shit. Bill will most likely keep making these videos, and get increasingly better with time and experience.

For all you haters out there, make your own damn video. And if you do, send a copy to Bill so he can talk shit about it or better yet maybe he will learn from someone also doing the same thing in the game. I'm sure he will appreciate the constructive criticism.

Be sure to follow the NDN:

STOLEN REVIEW #1

DAYSHAPES review stolen from WWW.AGGRESSIVEMALL.COM

REVIEWER: Kyle B. from USA

Pros:

Entertaining
Not too long

Cons:

n/a

Best Uses:

See new people
Souls/Topsouls

The video is not too long. which is the first thing i look for in a video that I don't know who is in it. Sections are decent and have pretty good music. Bailey's section is of course a must see and Erik Bill, the guy who made the video, also has a petty rad section, and it is so nice to see a fresh cameron card section which i loved. The video also has profiles on Dan Dickerson, Jeff Stanger, Nicholas Swan, and Phil Davidson which are all worth the watch.

i say if your interested in new talent then buy the dvd.

4/5

From the Inbox...

"In other news, dayshapes came in today! Haven't watched it yet, but the cover art looks sick.. I'm hoping i dont get the disk mixed up with my New Mexico cd.. (it's a local SD band, they used the same disk art, haha.. You may enjoy this lil tidbit, the drummer is Jon Elliotts brother)" - Geoff Acers

Pretty uncanny similarity between the two discs! If there's a band out there with a similar graphic to the actual cover art of Dayshapes...THAT would be crazy.

Dayshapes Teasers





The Fox, the Crow, and the Cookie.

Through mostly vacant streets a baker from the outskirts of his town
earned his living peddling sweets from a ragged cart he dragged around.

The clever Fox crept close behind, kept an ever watchful eye
for a chance to steal a ginger spicecake or a boysenberry pie.

Looking down was the hungry Crow.

"When the time is right I'll strike and condescend to the earth below and take whichever treat I like!"

The moment the baker turned around to shoo the Fox off from his cart
the Crow swooped down and snatched a shortbread cookie and a German chocolate tart.

Using most unfriendly words that the village children had not yet heard
the baker shouted threats by Canzonet to curse the crafty bird;

"You rotten wooden mixing spoon!
Why, you midnight winged raccoon!
You'd better bring those pastries back, you no-good, burnt-black-macaroon!"

The Fox approached the tree where the bird was perched, delighted, in his nest.

"Brother Crow, don't you remember me?
It's your old friend Fox with a humble request.
If you could share just a modest piece, seeing as I distracted that awful man..."

This failed to persuade the Crow in the least, so the Fox rethought his plan:

"Then, if your lovely song would grace my ears, or, to even hear you speak would ease my pains and fears."

The Crow looked down with the candy in his beak.

"Your poems of wisdom, my good Crow, what a paradise they bring!"

This flattery pleased the proud bird so, he opened his mouth and began to sing.

"Your subtle acclamation's true, best to give praise where praise is due.
Every Rook and Jay in the Corvidae has been Raven about me too!
They admire me, one and all... must be the passion in my 'Caw', my slender bill, known through the Escadrille, my fierce, commanding claw..."

Ah, I've got a walnut-brownie-brain and molasses in my veins
crushed graham cracker crust, my powdered sugar funnelcake cocaine.

Let the crescent cookie rise!

These carob-colored almond eyes would rest to see my Cashew Princess in the swirling marble sky.

We'll rest upon the knee where all divisions cease to be and rootbeer float in our banana boat across the Tapioca Sea.

When letting all attachments go is the only prayer we know.
May it be so, may it be so, may it be so, oh...

Silver & Gold

I went down to the devil.
"Devil, gonna sell my soul."
Gonna come back home my little love
with my pockets full of silver and gold.

"Well, you're out of luck" said the Devil.
"I got no silver and gold.
The policeman, he come and take up all my land
and he left me in a hole."

And I'm on my own.
No place to call my home.
Ain't no pretty gal gonna waste her time on me.

"I'd give you twenty women,
pretty gals for your soul.
They'll love you sweet all the good days of the week
'til you're buried and you're dead and you're cold."

"Well, I already got me a woman.
That's why I look so old.
If I go home she's gonna leave me on my own
'Cause I got no silver and gold."

And I'm on my own.
No place to call my home.
Ain't no pretty gal gonna waste her time on me.

"Well, I'll give you a brand new motorcar,
a motorcar for your soul.
You can drive around with your good gal on the town,
you can take her right down the road."

"Well, I don't want your brand new motorcar,
motorcar for my soul.
Have to bust my ass just to buy a tank of gas
So I can drive right down the road."

And I'm on my own.
No place to call my home.
Ain't no pretty gal gonna waste her time on me.

And I'm on my own.
No place to call my home.
Ain't no pretty gal gonna waste her life on me.
