Terminology

You should have seen that nice edit staring the always smart Kyle Leeper, but might have missed out on the “Powell Magic” comment that some old skater might have made, while watching the video with you… It’s a noble thing to do, spending time with your elders!
Learn that “Powell Magic” refers to the habit of asking riders to wear the same clothes for the duration of filming for their part (around three days, in those times!) that Stacy Peralta had, which would facilitate the editing of all the footage into one endless line, for the Powell-Peralta vids. An habit that would get mocked by Planet Earth in Animal Farm in 1993, where the term “Powell Magic” would appear on screen whenever that technique would be used.
Here. I’m old, too.
