Epicly Later'd Vol. 1


Pat O'dell's show, Epicly Later'd has been a golden shiny light in the lives of skateboarders around the world since it first appeared on VBS.TV a year or so ago. Though I'm a huge fan of the show, I'd be lying if I didn't tell you that it's availability through installments wasn't the most frustrating thing in the world. Everytime I watch a "Part 1" of a new episode, I become obsessed with when the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8's will drop. Call me an impatient bastard, but I just wish I could watch the entire things straight through.

There have been times, late at night when I've stayed up, praying to somebody...anybody that would listen. I'd say, "Patrick or Mr. VBS.TV Content Director, please allow me to watch my Epicly Later'd Episodes straight through, in their entirety. Heaven only knows how much these fragmented episodes kill me." It would go on like this until I'd drift off into a series of detailed dreams...dreams where I was a veteran back-up dancer for Prince and The New Power Generation. But that's an entirely different story.

Anyway, I'm pretty goddamned sure somebody was listening to my ongoing, late-night plea's, because it has just been announced that this December 9th, Volume One of the Epicly Later'd show will be available on DVD. That's right, folks, some of the shows OG episodes will be available in all of their uncut greatness. I had originally asked for a $900 gift card to Ben & Jerry's for Christmas, but I've changed my mind. I'm asking for a copy of this bad boy. —Jay Riggio

And if you haven't checked out the new Fully Flared, Koston Episodes, take a peak downstairs. Oh yeah...be sure to make a note of how burly that fakie tre back lip could have been. Just the thought of it makes me scared.
