I love Beavis & Butthead. Just hearing their theme song makes me laugh, so upon hearing Mike Judge's musical masterpiece at the outset of Back In Black... I knew I was on to something good. The quick montage of all the riders confirmed that. Black Label knows how to make sk8 vids!

Beavis and Butthead DVD As much as I adore the comedic mumblings of these two losers, can anyone tell me why the DVD releases of Beavis and Butthead are "collections" as opposed to seasons? South Park did the same stupid thing and began randomly releasing episodes. Finally, they clued in and released is seasonally so the fans won't miss out on episodes. To be honest, I could care less which episodes Mike Judge liked best. If I MUST be given this info, how about putting it in the liner notes?

Like any obsessed fan, I bought all the releases from Time-Life in 2003 - or there about - assuming my beloved misfits would never find their way out of litigation and onto my TV. Then it is announced they are coming to DVD, they release the DVD, then they pull it from the shelves because they screwed up the musical copyright authorizations. Way to go, morons.

So, now I'm left with these collections of random episodes instead of the seasonal releases that everyone is accustomed to. If anyone out there knows Mike Judge, or is so inclined as to venture into MySpace to find him, pass along my love for Beavis and Butthead and my displeasure with the treatment of their DVD releases in 2005 & 2006! Thanks.

Each rider has their own part with an ensemble of other folks mixed in here and there. Slams are also mixed in... just when it looks good - OUCH!

As seen in the footage, it's very difficult to get the footy you want for your part when a security guard i telling you to leave. Perhaps the best policy is to ignore him and assure him that you're gonna pull the trick on the next try.
"Just one more try. Last time."

Mumford was getting some sick airs as he flew out of a concrete bowl. Lots of good footy on this scene. Then he puts on a hockey mask and the part gets all "Halloween" as he skates the bowl with a hatchet in hand.

FYI:
John Candy in the movie "Uncle Buck", is the only way to enhance a scene with the addition of a hatchet. Using it to symbolize mayhem at a skatepark is lame. JC threatening his niece's boyfriend with it - classic!

Besides that, Matt Mumford rode huge and had an awesome part. From there we get to see a lot of beer consumed at a bowl. Have a drink on me, kids.
