Haha!

I planned to have a look at the video later myself - this'll save me a hunt.

He features in this too (which is also easily one of the best skate films I've ever seen):

Ha, nice one :D !
Had no idea he was a skater, probably because between 1991 and last year skating wasn't even on my radar!
Cheers for posting Andrew ...makes me appreciate Dinosaur Jr even more :)
Here's a video of them filming another vid with J skating and Murph and Lou Barlow on BMX's ...

I'm going to see Dinosaur Jr in about a month. I'll challenge him to a game of S.K.A.T.E.

I've loved Dinisair Jr since I was about 15, I had no idea they have such a connection to skating. There's tons of great stuff on YouTube!

Without wishing to sound like a dick, is this actually Mr Mascis flipping these moves in this video?

I'm afraid it's not no, and the bmx tricks aren't done by Murph or Lou Barlow either ... I posted a link above which shows a short making-of film of the video ^^^

Yeah I watched it. It was weird hearing Jay Mascis speak. Back when I did music writing I was friends with his PR agent. I got tickets for a gig and asked if I could interview the man himself, 'there's not point' was the polite response. Actually it was James from Caught in the Crossfire who was the PR, which now knowing the skating link makes total sense!

I first got into them when Out There came out ... off the same album as Start Choppin I think (Where You Been?)
But yeah, when I heard Bug and other earlier albums that's when I realised how great they are!

Love that part (and the whole video), partly because of the soundtrack ... big fan of the cure, and while I generally don't like covers that just do the song as it was originally done, this is a good one :)

I had the tee shirt with the young girl smoking on it, I got in big trouble at 6th form for wearing offensive clothing!

Another post-hardcore type who maybe doesn't skate, but has a boyfriend who skates is Kim Gordon. Her current partner used to be a pro surfer.

I used to listen to a lot of Dino Jr. I saw a recent interview with Mascis recently, maybe it was also posted on here or while I was youtubing the heck out of skating.

On the topic of his dog, who is probably passed middle age for a dog, have you guys seen this dog? It's pretty impressive.

And there was me thinking there was no way Kim Gordon could get any cooler. I was wrong.

There's something about Kim's foot placement that is bothering me.

Pretty sure that is a Carver board, with super wiggly front truck and almost dead rear, so foot placement can be a little different
