blood·cur·dling scream; – Stay Gold is Here!

14 July 2010, 10.33 | Posted in Uncategorized | No comments »

blood·cur·dling scream; –adjective arousing terror; horrifying: a bloodcurdling scream.

This is the shit that makes your blood run cold, makes you want to punch the cement until your fists are filled with blood, the kind of determination you have when nothing else in the world matters except the moment you’re in. Fuck the world, fuck you, fuck that rock that just tossed you, fuck that weird bump before you ollie, fuck that stupid bird that won’t shut the fuck up so you can concentrate, fuck that twitch in your face from nerves, fuck the pain in your leg, fuck this dumb hat!!! If you skateboard, you understand this philosophy of “Fuck Everything” because of frustration. It’s the inner determination and perseverance that drives you to overcome these demonic thoughts in your head and when that time comes and you nail the trick you have just tried for the last four hours straight, the world becomes the most beautiful place in the universe again. The frustration, anticipation and determination that comes out of Jerry’s scream is enough to get you freaked out yourself, but you understand what he is going through and you just want to sit quietly and let him work through it.

The highly anticipated Stay Gold – The Emerica Video, Emerica’s first full-length feature since 2003’s This Is Skateboarding, features groundbreaking skating from the Emerica Team – Andrew Reynolds, Heath Kirchart, Leo Romero, Bryan Herman, Kevin “Spanky” Long, Jerry Hsu, Braydon Szafranski, Aaron Suski and Brandon Westgate – along with breakthrough parts from Young Emericans Jamie Tancowny, Justin “Figgy” Figueroa, Collin Provost, Marquis Preston, and friends.


Stay Gold will be Available September 1st, but I’ll be at the premier with all my homies that have had multiple moments like Jerry’s, and give them a congratulatory high-five after I watch their monumental video parts that they put their blood, sweat and tears into.
