The Biggest Gaming News of 2020 is that I'm touching up this 15-minute spikejumper from July 2013

I'm going through @-replies to @xkcdremix (love them) and enjoying when people point out 3-panels that are better as 2-panels, eg:

Search for an old skate video +++ !!! 

- It WAS posted to YouTube, thankfully, in 2008 (29k views and 53 comments in 12 years... so fairly obscure)
- It WAS for a contest, the long-defunct "Way of the Warriors"
- It WAS future Spiderman stuntman William Spencer in it

Search for an old skate video +++ !!! 

FOUND IT, via the best/worst search tool of all... the human brain

- An unrelated skate video on that CD-R was called "GOD.wmv"
- This triggered a memory: Weren't they called the "God Squad"?
- YES, that was the searchable clue I needed, then it all came together

Search for an old skate video 

• I do indeed have at least 2 old CD-Rs with random saved internet skate videos (~2004)
• This includes a low-res trailer for "ASV" (A Skateboarding Video) which I believe I found on a forum, with the URL "www.asvideo.tk"
• Confirmed via Wayback Machine ASV was an amateur Maryland skate vid
• So where are there mentions of "asvideo.tk"? According to Google... nowhere except some recent spam pages

Show thread

OK... I'm not imagining it... Bandcamp's site shows Weeklys with Tuesday release dates; their app shows Monday release dates...
