Chocolate skateboards review
By sk8tingblind112 at 2007-01-22 20:08

Chocolate is a fairly well known skateboard company. They are a branch off of the better known company Girl. They have a stellar team, that has been threw a lot but are still throwing it down. First, let’s get to know the company before we jump into the review. The team is made up of Marc Johnson, Scott Johnston, Gino Iannuci, Chris Roberts, Devon Callaway, Chico Brenes, Kenny Anderson, Daniel Castillo, Anthony Pappalardo, and Justin Eldridge.

Chocolate Graphics tend to be very simple. They use contrasting colors, and simple patterns to catch an eye. Their graphics are always clear-cut, and non-vulgar, which can be hard to find. Either you are going to love the graphics, or hate them. It all just depends on what you’re into.

H.264 Compression Tutorial.

How to compress using quicktime H.264.

ive been noticing a few threads about compression and noobs complaining about massive file sizes and all that kinda stuff so im going to teach you how to compress using h.264, the most effective .mov codec. viewers will need quicktime 7 to watch these movies, which is free, and for you to compress your videos using h.264 you'll need to buy qt 7 pro which is 30 bucks. honestly, dont go downloading it. its 30 fucking bucks. both are available from the apple website.

ok, so the first step is to export your file from whatever editing program your using, whether it be premiere, vegas, final cut, moviemaker, whatever, as a full quality .avi or .dv. this is pretty straight forward. mac users will want to do something like this and pc users can figure it out themselves cuz this shit is the simple part.

How to Mount a Skateboard on Your Wall
By grimcity at 2007-01-05 13:49

Lots of skateboarders have decks that have some sort of sentimental value... some of us have boards that we hold onto because they're limited editions, the graphics are tight, they're autographed, or maybe the skater just has special memories associated with the plank in question. This article will show you one of several ways to hang a board on your wall so that you can enjoy the graphic, and allow your prized possession to be a work of art.

One of the complications with hanging a board is that they don't rest flatly on the wall... the nose and/or tail cause them to pop out a few inches, so nailing them directly is out of the question (unless you have some pretty long nails). Another problem with nailing the board directly is that you run the risk of missing the nail and smashing into the board itself... which may not matter if it's a used board, but if you're trying to mount a board while keeping the graphic in mint condition, consider this method. Here's an example of two (of several) boards I recently got around to mounting:
