Ray Barbee, Renaissance Man
A bunch of the kids were talking about skateboarding, tricks, and trying to figure out no-complys. I asked them if they'd ever seen Ray Barbee do no-complys, and they hadn't, so we watched Public Domain and Ban This - I couldn't remember which one had Ray's full part in it, the first one. Public Domain has his shared part with Eric Sanderson, Steve Saiz, those kids from Jersey or Florida or wherever who disappeared. Ban This has his first full part, the one that starts with his funny lines about starting to skate six years ago... Anyway, that led to a conversation about music, his days in ColdWaterCrane, and then all his stuff in between. So I thought I'd put up a couple rad videos.
First, Ray's part in the sixth (if you count the Lakewood video) Powell-Peralta video, Ban This:
And then a much more recent trailer, for the film Thread by Patrick Trefz:
