Bonless Super Honor Retro Non-Retro

hate-super-bonless

There music videos featuring skateboards. “Super Skate” is a French single by Rika Zarai from 1978. It’s really retro, right down to the pads, skateboards and Dune Buggy. Then there’s “Boneless” (2013) by Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo. The video blurs the edges between the 80’s, 90’s and present day. Boneless features 80’s graphics and fashion, late 90’s video game simulation, modern skateboarding, boardslides mislabeled “grindage.” I’d say this could be an intentional post-modern mashup, but the fact that there’s not a single boneless in a video for song called “Boneless” suggests that someone didn’t do their homework. In a completely different musical and visual direction, there’s the 2013 song “Honor Never Dies” by Hatebreed. I wish cartoon screaming over metal music would die, but I guess that’s still a thing.

Steve Aoki, Chris Lake & Tujamo – Boneless (Official Video). I guess this is the whole track. It plays like an extended intro. I kept waiting for the “the song” to start.

A few choice video captures of Boneless.

    Shouldn’t the aoki video have a Benihana in it? I mean didn’t his father found Benihana? And yeah any board pre 1993 is called a ‘cruzer’ now. So annoying

      Even worse: longboarders talking about ‘shortboards’.
