Feel like living in a video game lately. Had to pass through many barriers on each level. Went through many things in the last couple of months, it’s been a hell of a ride! And Im still in game.
Expect loads of characters, enemies, foregrounds, multiple levels. Environments are large and encourage exploration. Looking at it with an artistic eye I must admit the plot n graphics are pretty amazin n drop jaws. Analyzing:
Level 1 -violent-
set in Liverpool
Had stayed there for awhile. Arrived a week before LACED where I was gonna compete. Unfortunately I got involved in a fight after a night out while there. Was lost in the night with no sight of any friends. You might realized by now this is a single player game. No jumping into a co-op play sesh. Whatever came had to face it alone. So it happened that a bunch of crackhead girls beat me up with no reason while walking back to my hotel, sure they misunderstood my sign language. Thanx god we were outdoors, otherwise I would hv come out of the ceiling. The colours of the rainbow all have their own unique beauty but deffo not on my face! Was horrrible.
Therefore was missing out on the comp and headed back to Mcr.
Level 2 -wierd-
Set in Manchester
Came to realize I had no longer hv my passport just few days before Winterclash. Mission. More Likely Impossible.
Or how the hell u think I could hv passed the boarder with no ID and a badly smashed face? Came up with an idea..but didn’t want to turn up like that and ruin my image anyway..
Level 3 –creepy-
Set in Edinburgh
Where a ghost crept upon me in a property, I broke in to shoot some photos. A random tourist joined me but he stuck inside n got caught. I hv never climbed a fence that fast in my life..onto a statue n when got on the ground ran away n kept takin photos from a shrub. The city offered plenty of options for outdoors adventure, like climbing, biking, skating in the local park where I caught up with an old friend of mine. Put a short clip together, which meant to show no big tricks but feelings, the fact how much we appreciate what the other does. Make sure you chechk it here: http://vimeo.com/38167324
I met some amazin dudes at the hotel. We all know that I do hv a lot of bad luck when it comes to trying to get from point A to point B. Well these guys managed to miss 6 flights all together in just one week!! And I thought my travel carma was bad! Anyway the amount of fun we had just insane.
Level 4 -crowded-
Set in London
Moved down south.
Apart from the street spots..Just can’t get to like it.
Didn’t like the cops here either n visa versa.
Level 5 -dirty-
Set in Miskolc
Arrived in town for a comp and a wicked food festival.
Bankcard was left in England, leaving me literaly with no money for the weekend. I was accomodated in the worst hostel ever, no hot water, no fridge, no nothing. Yet the place was fully booked. Not to mention that I helped some folks sneaking in too. We were playin some drinking card game which resulted in chaos. Some mutant bloodsucking and biting lice attacked my head. This made my headache tripple worse that came with the hangover next day. Yet managed to show up at this inline jam and was shredding with the Hun guys. Was scratching my head like crazy though while skating which was very distracting. It certainly drifted my attention away from what I was focusing on. (I manage to do a tricky stall on a window seal which I quite liked.) But the bad luck didn’t stop there. Had to put up with some very budget food which I kept on the top of my wardrobe due to not having a freaking fridge in the building. While trying to reach it climbing up there, the wardrobe decided to fall and collapse on me. Being the only person in the room, someone had to break the door in to help me. I hated myself for travelling with a mega sized backpack, since my back was killing me next day. So as my stomach!
As the saying suggest ’eat a live frog first thing in the morning and nothing worse will hapen to u the rest of the day’, thought I should think ’ bout it, though envisioning the process is not a pretty thing. Well someone was ’kind’ enough to invite me for a traditionally prepared juicy big froggy meal at the food fest – baring in mind that I could not afford to eat a nice meal in the last couple of days- I bravely took on the challenge. Tried to kiss it first but didn’t work so left no choise but tuck it in. Well it wasn’t a piece of cake! Anyway completed an important task to save the day. To get through this level I was hitchiking home.
Level 6 –hardcore-
Set in Jászberény
The main challenge here was to survive the late night outs, and sick skate sesh day by day. Don’t know why is this obsession about bridges.. I was sessioning one again. More precisely was skating underneath it. Bad timing though. Some ppl carried out work on the riverside. Had to wait until they went on their lunch break. Then I could hv a little bit of fun fooling around. At my last trick when I was trying to jump off the bridge onto the bank , faceplanted the ground and lost a tooth. Which I only realized a good couple of hours later, after visiting a takeaway n sweetshop.. Meaning I didn’t get any cash from the Tooth Fairy coz I swallowed it. I was raging like crazy! Also it was bankholiday weekend with no emergency dental care.
So was haunting on the dance floor with the wild party animals that weekend, the missing tooth gave me the real party monster look for sure.. But I was leaning more to being a loner so had to get back on my doomed mission to complete the game. After my tooth got fixed was off again. Found it pretty ironic that I ended up having a bridge in my mouth to cover the gap created by the missing tooth..
Level 7 –chilled-
Set in Holland
Just chillin the dutch way in tuliptown. Amazin flowers, fields of dreams.. Officially living on the road out of a suitcase. Moved out for good. Got back on the road. I’m in a tuk-tuk right now….
