@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits "Good and Evil" was one of the most highly anticipated skate videos for me. It was five long years since "Jump Off a Building", Toy had a fully revamped team with Kevin Barnett behind the lens, and everyone involved was ready to melt the faces of the loyal pawns (and that they did!) So come along as I share some of my favorite moments from the 2004 Toy Machine video "Good and Evil"! - @the_skatenerd #TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays The Hits Ed Templeton (@Ed.Templeton) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥: Kevin Barnett I always liked that Ed skated up the gap to bank in Barcelona instead of going down it like people normally did. And you couldn't have a "Good and Evil" marathon without a Tempster Noseblunt, now could you?! Oh, what I would give for a reissue of those black/purple Templeton 3s... #TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Josh Harmony (@JoshHarmony) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥: Kevin Barnett That 50-50 to Smith is one of my favorite tricks from "Good and Evil"! The first time I watched him lock in, I thought, "50-50? Josh Harmony is gnarlier than just a 50-50!" Then he went through the first kink and I said to myself, "Wait, Appleyard 50-50'd this in the Flip video!" and then as he went through the second kink I thought, "Surely he must know Leo Romero did this Backside like six months ago!" But then at the very last second, he went to Smith and I just about had a skate nerd aneurysm. I'm sorry for ever doubting your magical ways, Josh! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Austin Stephens from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥:Kevin Barnett Austin Stephens was handsome before it was "cool" to be handsome. Just look at that nonchalant hop out of the gate. He didn't even need to high-water his pants to look that damn sexy! He's also got a flick that will be one for the ages (as demonstrated in the mirrored Backside/Frontside Flips). One thing about his part, though...When its over, I can't tell if I'm more inspired to go out and skate or shred the banjo! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Matt Bennett (@Matt_Bennett__) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥:Kevin Barnett The first time I saw Matt Bennett's ender, it all made so much sense to me. The opposite of a Barley Grind...why hadn't anyone thought of this before?! I figured there could only be one appropriate name for this trick, so it was no surprise when Thrasher captioned it the "Bennett Grind". Mr. Bennett wasn't messing around with this one either. He introduced this trick not once, but twice in "Good and Evil". Both on good-sized handrails and both with that elegance only MB can provide! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits I love the Transistor Sect cartoon from "Good and Evil"! @MikeGeigerAnimation did a great job with the animations, and the bizarre storyline totally screams Ed Templeton! The little details like the "Wall-Mart" commercial playing on the TV or the scream from Slayer's "Angel of Death" made this an instant classic for me! I was always sad this didn't carry on to the future Toy Machine videos, though. I thought it made a fun little intermission, if you will, and to this day I still wonder what happened to the prostitute after she fled the scene! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Johnny Layton (@Johnny__Layton) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥:Kevin Barnett I'm claiming "Good and Evil" was the video that put the massive Kolb rail (or "Leo Romero Noseslide rail" as I like to reference it) on the map. Prior to the onslaught the Toy dudes laid down, there were just a select few people to step up to this menacing piece of metal (Leo and Duffman being the first that come to mind). J-Lay took it to the next level, though. He rifled those three tricks off in the middle of his part, when at the time, they easily could have been someone's enders (and probably still could be today). That rail is so damn tall...to get your back truck on/over it is absolutely ridiculous, which makes that Back Smith my all-time favorite trick done here! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Billy Marks (@Billy_Marks) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥:Kevin Barnett Does anyone else remember the Thrasher cover of Billy's Kickflip Lipslide down Hollywood 12? I waited what felt like an eternity for that footage to surface and thought it would surely be in his "Good and Evil" part. It actually did make it into his part...his extras part in the bonus features, and in its place was this behemoth of a Kickflip Lipslide! Pretty much the last minute and a half of Bill's section is insane flip-in tricks down the biggest rails and ledges. This part was a game-changer, for sure! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Diego Bucchieri (@labucha) from @ToyMachine "Good and Evil" (2004) 🎥:Kevin Barnett They don't call him "The Butcher" for no reason! The full sprint beforehand is almost better than the actual huckage. My brain had been beaten and battered by everyone else's "Good and Evil" parts, and then in comes Diego with the 20 stair KO! What a way to close out an amazing video. DIEGOOOOO!!!!! 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits

@The_SkateNerd Plays the Hits Upon first viewing of "Good and Evil", I immediately fell in love with not only the new Toy Machine roster, but also with master lensman Kevin Barnett and his wonderful film and editing skills. Fast forward a few years and he also gave us "Suffer the Joy" and "Brainwash", both amazing videos as well! So while 'The Hits' may have come to an end, fear not, for "Good and Evil" is widely available at you nearest video-sharing website. Though I'd recommend looking for a hardcopy, if not for the superior video quality, then for the hoards of bonus features only found on the DVD. Thank you to all the loyal pawns and fellow skate nerds that came along for the ride this week. It's been almost 11 years to the day since "Good and Evil" was released and it still gets me just as excited about skateboarding as it did way back then! ❤️ 🤓#TheSkateNerdPlaysTheHits
