Back in June, Casey and I wanted to make a video for National Go Skateboarding Day aka the first day of summer aka June 21st 2013. We wanted to do something different, something interesting in the world of skateboarding and for ourselves. So Saturday June 22 we grabbed the video camera, tossed our boards in the car, and drove an hour north to Hague, NY to Rogers Rock Campground. There’s a nice mountain trail there leading up to a beautiful view over Lake George. We made our way to the top stopping off where we felt inspired and challenged to skate. There were moments where we put ourselves at serious risk of being hurt or killed but all in good fun and filmmaking. Also, skating on rocks is very difficult and this video doesn’t do justice to how tough it is. We had a blast, enjoy.

Here is this year’s Summer Session with Casey Ray Schultz.

These sessions/ videos have seem to become a tradition since Casey has been away in California with the Marines. When he comes to visit in June we try to skate a lot and bra a little footage. It started with Casey’s Summer Session 2010, Continued with June Session 2011 (a part with not only Casey but Ryan Cambage and myself) and continues with year with more tricks and shenanigans this year, and hopefully next year as well and who knows.

This 2 day part consists of riding around Saratoga Springs, NY, of course, hitting up some very familiar and classic spots, and also visiting Lake George for the last day of Americade. We first did an Americade film and skate session in The Skate Movie (the first skate movie we did directed by Nicholas Blair) and although we hardly ever go it seems like a loose tradition as well haha. Anyway it’s good because there is a ton of people and motorcycles to distract police so we can skate forbidden areas.

We hung out and skated more so than really filmed a bunch but in the end made out with just about 6 minutes of worthy footage for the video, which got trimmed a bunch and with the song turned into a solid 3 1/2 minute video. Somehow I was inspired yo sue an Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti song. I remember hearing “Bright Lit Blue Sky” and thinking I could see this in a skate part or fun, summer video. Later when I got really into the album Before Today I kept the song in mind i guess and it was the only one i tried to edit the video too and immediately was feeling it.

Probably will submit it to the Lake George Arts People’s Pixel Project this year since they enjoyed a Summer Session video last year. Thanks for reading and watching, enjoy!

Over the summer I filmed a short two day part with Casey and Ryan. We hit up Saratoga and Lake George, and got a very small amount of footage. It was the last Casey footage before he went to Afghanistan, and in honor of his 10 years of skateboarding. It’s pretty cool, and being up on Prospect Mountain looks nice.

OK! SO, before music and smart phones consumed my life (and many of our lives) I used to skateboard a lot more and film, edit, and produce skate video with some rad, talented, & inspiring friends. 10 years ago we were hoping to put out a semi-full length skateboarding film for fun and documentation - a little slice of people and spots within our Saratoga Springs skate scene. Before iPhones, we carried around a MiniDV tape camcorder with a fisheye lens (all standard, at best, quality at the time) and went everywhere and hit every spot we could with basically no money or regard for the rules. We filmed mostly in 2008 & 2009 around Saratoga and other Upstate, NY places in hopes to upload this thing on YouTube (which had only existed for like 3 years). As time went on, the concept kind of got abandoned and as the parts were slowly finished they popped online and eventually that’s where they all ended up. BUT NOW, for the first time ever, the full film is actually complete (enough) and presented for nostalgic good fun. Those days and the people involved with this video were so important, fun, and inspiring to me. The good ol’ days. Love you all, and skateboarding, and I’m still throwin’ down as much as I can <3 Rated gnaR Films (in association with Bad Culture Films & Rec City Skates) presents DIRTY MANEUVER 25+ minutes (plus bonus videos) featuring @superdarkchris @casey_gnar @paullydiamond @toilet_victim @zakyounginstafam and Dan Levy Please excuse the quality of (some of the skating & antics haha) and the decade old equipment. Thank you all, share with the homies, and enjoi! https://youtu.be/DP2emyubPHk

Times can be uncertain, sad, & scary... like now... which reminds me of my twenties heh... so seems like an appropriate time, since no can do much anyway, to let you know my two lofi solo albums are on all streaming sites (and bandcamp) if anyone is interested. Both compiled/ created during my 20’s and represent a specific, nostalgic journey and moments in my life during that era. Both are experimental in some way, but the first album is songs that came to be over time and whether winged or half-written I chose to make exist instead of forgetting them or not creating a all. I’d call if lofi alt-folk post-punk I guess. The second album is instrumental and structured loop based “practice jams” basically, but they have their moments and meaning all recorded randomly in a year span while living on Church St in Saratoga where Super Dark Collective was born. I’d call it lofi experimental loop jams. I was inspired at the time to actually collect all of these lofi weirdo sad time half songs and put them out thanks to Asa, Shane, Kieran, & Tony. Hope you all are doing well and staying healthy and safe out there! Much love!
