    Stranger Than Fiction

    I was watching the movie on Friday, and the impossible happened. I actually got tired and bored of watching surfers pull 360's and backflips over and over and over again. Does anyone else agree with me, i know most of you won't

    Totally agree with you... That's why the surf vids I watch now usually have a storyline behind it. ie: the Drive Thru's, One California Day, etc.

    I hear ya on the fact if the film is showin repeat tricks throughout...But all kill no fill is the way to go; or at least give you the option for an all kill no fill like Steele gives you in Camp 2..I wanna see them surf not hear about their ridiculous B/S and nonsense..

    I agree. Insane footage never gets old, but there is always a certain amount of filler... The vids with some sort of storyline is what does it for me now a days.

    stranger than fiction does have a story line....but i know what you mean and i still love it. the moonshine movies are my favorite such as shelter, thicker than water, a brokedown melody, and i saw the premier of one track mind and i loved that one. also the drive thurs.

    A movie doesn't need to have a story or filler to be good, but the key for me at least is variety. If variety comes in the form of filler, it has to be good. I don't know if anyone has seen loose change, or the first campaign, but taylor steele has a tendency to do these cheesy skits that are kind of goofy and out of place. I like the filler stuff in the ...lost videos, and the jack johnson style videos. The ...lost stuff is kinda like jackass but it really keeps up with the intense nature of the film, and soundtracks, so it works in that sense. Also, the ...lost videos always have such a good variety of waves. The jack johnson/moonshine videos always have really cool glimpses into surfers lives and philosophies, not to mention the variety of waves(or the variety of boards) used in the films. I just recently stumbled on this trailer for a new film that looks epic. It's mostly log footage but they throw in some retro fish and even an alaia. I did some research and it looks like the guy making it is from NY which is pretty sick to so an east coaster making such a nice looking flick. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jv3rfiq9uIY

    Globe's New Emissions of Light and Sound has quickly become one of the top 3 surf movies on my favorites list. The soundtrack is killer and the surfing from the Hobgoods, Taj and Yadin Nichol speaks for itself.

    Do yourself a favor and buy the DVD! Also, as an added bonus, order it from Globe's Website, you will get a free New Emissions of Light and Sound t-shirt!

    Go Get It Already!

    the first ten minutes is pictures, crazy barrel footage, and fast action videos of sunrises and that type of stuff. kinda more artsy. but after that taj and yadin kill it.
