The nice thing about magazine videos, as opposed to those made by manufacturers and their own sponsored riders, is you get to see a cool mix of skaters all on one DVD. It mixes things up.

I don't want to go off on a tangent here, but did you know that David Hasselhoff (yeah, the Baywatch & Knight Rider d00d) has released 12 albums in Europe? I knew Europeans worship him as a pop icon, but that's a lot of wasted vinyl or whatever they make CDs out of these days. And worse is that 6 of these atrocities have gone platinum. Who's buying this stuff?!?

Daewon gets yelled at by some guy who doesn't appreciate him skating across the flat roof tops. This guy is even more pissed that Daewon and his crew have dragged several benches onto the roof and are using them to slide over the gap between roofs. Speaking of which... that'd be a nasty fall from way up there.

I love footage of security guards and I.E. doesn't disappoint there either. The elderly guard himself isn't very amusing, but the skater he's trying to discourage accuses him of throwing rocks at his head. He starts rolling around on the ground as if in extreme pain. Classic!

I almost forgot to mention that the skating in I.E. is awesome. This is a great disc with a lot of street-style variety.
