Just got this video from Cyclone Cycles today, and it is definitely a necessity for your eyes. I can say this after watching it once because every single rider in it has at least five tricks in their section that made me release my sphincter. A trick list would actually be impossible because so many of the tricks that are the best are from the future and don't have names.

It's 100% street as fuck. It's got full sections from Vinnie Sammon, Lino Gonzales, Jared Washington, George Dossantos, Tyrone Williams, Bob Scerbo, Butcher, Steven Hamilton, Corey Martinez and Edwin Delarosa plus a load of random riders who kill it. The stand out sections were Steven Hamilton ( loooooooonnnnnnng manual to curved wall to 360 out, putting his bike in very high and far away places generally), Jared Washington, Edwin (tech as fuck feeble to manual a thin barrier to barspin out), Lino Gonzales (Kinked feeble to 180 out), Butcher and Bob Scerbo were also class but it's such an onslaught on your brain with every rider throwing out trick after trick after trick that I can't remember too much of it. Every one a banger and no clangers, all killer no filler, all rad no bad Etc.

The music is slanted like whoa towards the Hip Hop end of the spectrum. This is the video I've been waiting for as far as music is concerned... Big L mixes it up with Blondie, Del tha Funkee Homo Sapien with er, 50 cent (The only bad bit about Edwin's section was the choice of 'music'...)
The extras include a Jo Tiseo tribute section (Always makes me sad when I see stuff like that, from the old Road Fools I've seen he seemed like a really safe guy), A bit of Bob Scerbo et al skating, some ads for Skavenger plus a load of companies I hadn't heard of, A dumb TV show thing from San Diego which has Edwin, Bob and Ryan Sher busting moves in the background while Glenn PP Milligan promotes the Ride USA Vid Reincarnation with a guy called Stan (Respect to Glenn for asking where Stan's helmet is when he gets on Ryan's Bike), a George Dossantos Interview, Plus extra old and random footage.

This video hypes you up to the MAX! The music and great editing work so well with the riding, plus the fact that all the riding is the most shit the bed stuff and all 100% on real street. Fuck yeah. One for your collection

This video is 100% raw street. Not one park or dirt clip. I guess you can decide if that is a good thing or a bad thing, I think it's a great thing. For me the standouts were Lino Gonzalez, who for some reason thinks it's possible to feeble to 180 round rails and Bob Scerbo who spins like a top and also did a lot of the filming and editing for this video.

I must warn you though, it would probably be a good idea to line your couch with plastic before watching Edwin and Steven Hamilton's parts because you will more than likely shit your pants. You'll just have to see their parts because nothing I could say would even come close to doing them justice. There is a pretty wide variety of music on this video and I think it goes really well with the riding. I especially liked the Violent Femmes song in Steven Hamilton's part.

Also a normal rating scale will not do this video any justice. There are only two ways to describe how good it is...
1. Use a long string of swear words followed by an exclamation point: Holy fucking shit fuck, this video is fucking ass amazing!
2. Make up a new word, as there is no existing word in the english language that could possibly convey how good this video really is: Wow this video is mondoradulacious!

There you have it, now go buy this video.

The long-awaited DVD from Animal is finally here. This DVD does not disappoint. At your normal price of $21.95, it is more than worth the money.
Vinnie, Lino Gonzalez, Jared Washington, George D., Tyrone Williams, Bob Scerbo, Butcher, Steve Hamilton, Corey Martinez, and Edwin De La Rosa make up the sections in the movie. Riders like Joe Tiseo, Phil Wasson, Luc-E, Wiz, Vic Ayala, Markus Wilke, and others make up two random sections within the movie.

With riders like this, you can expect two things; lots of street and lots of tech tricks. There are no ramp or trail clips, but that isn't a bad thing. All of the riders have very good parts parts, but the peg less rider takes the cake for me. Steve Hamilton flat out kills it. He does this crazy manual to gap to manual on some picnic tables, but the second manual with his feet on the seat! Edwin, Bob, Tyrone, and Corey all have incredible parts that make it tough to pick a favorite.

Other than Edwin's part, riding to 50 Cent's "What up Gangsta," the music didn't quite keep up with the riding. It's not horrible though. There is a variety of music in the movie from Dinosaur JR., The Rolling Stones, Blondie, Eric Clapton, Tame 1, Big L, Violent Femme, and more. Even though I thought the music didn't quite fit sometimes, you hardly even notice it the first time because of the tricks that are being thrown down.

The running time of the movie is just under 27 minutes. But with all the rewinding you will do, it will take you about an hour to watch it. With the bonus sections, the total running time of the movie is around an hour.

Speaking of bonus, the bonus material is very interesting. They remember Joe Tiseo showing all his video parts from "Stairs", "Grizzle", "Don't Quit Your Day Job", "Intense Energy", and "Animal."

They also include a skate video in the bonus section. Bob and friends show off their skating abilities with a very entertaining skate video. Even if you don't like skating, you will enjoy watching some of the best BMX riders throwing it down on a board. Some of the most enjoyable bonus material has to be the "Old Footage" section. It really does show very old footage of a lot of the Animal team that will make you giggle.

A "Random" section also has a lot of cool bits in it from Edwin and Bob appearing on a morning show in San Diego to some dude getting knocked out cold by a motorcycle rider. It also has a George D. interview, Skavenger section, a Vinnie crash section, and a bit more.

The music and editing weren't up to par with some of the recent best, but the riding puts this DVD up there with Forward, Subversion, and other recent greats. I give it a 10/10 on riding and bonus material alone.

If street riding is your addiction, then Animal is your pusher and Can I Eat? is their way of hooking you up with the big score. You can always tell when someone in the office is watching this video, because you can hear laughter coming from the video room. It's not that the video itself is particularly funny, it's that the riding within it is completely ridiculous. All you can do is laugh at some of the stuff that goes down, because you can't seem to figure out how else to react to it. Vinnie Sammon, Lino Gonzales, Jared Washington, George Dossantos, Tyrone Williams, Bob Scerbo, and Joe "Butcher" Kowalski all deliver solid sections, but things get serious when Steven Hamilton, Corey Martinez, and Edwin DeLaRosa are onscreen. Judging by the action in this video, these guys must be checking dream tricks off their list every day. There are also some unique bonus items included. Old riding footage of some of the Animal crew helps give you a new perspective on their evolution, and there's some modern skate footage of a handful of bike riders that might surprise you. There's also a Joe Tiseo video part compilation from over the years and a goofy morning show segment with Glenn P.P. Milligan when he was out with Scerbo and DeLaRosa on the Butterfinger Movie Tour. Some of the filming is a little sketchy, but it's overshadowed by the quality of the riding. If you ride street-scratch that-if you ride BMX, get this video.
