Occasionally in Holeshot I do a feature called “Reviews in 5 Words”. I didn’t invent the idea, in fact I’m pretty sure I stole it from The Factsheet 5 Reader. A zine I have never seen, only heard about from the depths of, hold on while I cringe before I say this, zine culture. Being that it’s pretty fun to describe something in so few words, I decided to apply this method to reviewing web videos. I picked a bunch from TheComeUp, Defgrip, and a few other sites. I only picked edits that were less than a week old (I think) and not a trailer for anything. Although I did break that rule, as well as the 10 word or less rule, once. Enjoy.
1. Chase Hawk “How-To Moto-Whip”
Amazing. Watch out for the impostors this week though.
2. Travis Kiesow Vital Edit
Where the D3’s? Should’ve used Limp Bizkit instead of Cam.
4. Balazs Ivanfi WethePeople Videorama (?)
CROSS-FOOTED BACKFLIP TO FAKIE. Pretty Jock Jamming.
5. S&M “Shoot The Moon”
Ahhhhhh. Butthead style. Just how S&M should be. Sick wallrides.
6. Cult “Get Laced”
No disrespect but, WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT????????
7. THAW Video by Agus
“My Dehart whips are so dope.” Thanks to Dah Streets for this one. It’s gonna be a legend in web video history.
8. Sexton & Tocco Kink Edit
VIMEO user Shannon Allan says “one of the most stylist edits ive ever saw”. (way over 10, but not really.)
9. Joe Dodd Leaf Cycles
Good but too slick. Looks like some weird Apple trailer.
10. Brian Castillo “BMX Inferno”
What? Who cares, watch this again and enjoy something today.
