    Ol Skool is determined by:
    1. state of mind
    2. the company you keep

    The real answer is when the rap music you listen to is so much better than the rap music your kids listen to... that's when you are truly Old School!

    It's too late. The cut off date on being old skool was 10 years ago.

    I'm not sure, but I felt pretty OS when I picked up the new Dirt last night and couldn't help but wish that Lacondeguy and all the other aggrotards now doing the SStyle thing would realize just how late to the game they are with their copycatting of late 80's boarders.

    "Brah, we break sh*t while wasted, that's right - we're XXXtreme! Brah."

    Pffftt... whippersnapper punks.

    In my day we didn't have fancy-schmancy X-rays, we had DUCTTAPE - and WE LIKED IT!


    Maybe you're OS when you feel nothing but disdain for your respective sport's newest converts?


    edit: Maybe when you start sporting round "artiste" glasses, a soul patch... and referring to yourself in third person? But then, The Jesus is Ol' Skool, even without round glasses:

    I don't know mang, you hear one Aesop Rock song/rap and you've heard them all. Sage Francis has something to say.

    There hasn't been a good rapper since Scarface.

    I say that if you learned on a fully rigid 18 speed in the 80s, remember pumping up the first rockshox with that stupid little pump that had no gauge, built wheels with twisted spokes, and stuck up pics of Johnny T on your wall, then you are old skool.

    My first "records" were 45's, driven by all the 'Top 40" AM stations and their superstar disk jockeys. FM radio had only a minor listener base. Most groups put out "Singles" with a "B" side. It wasn't until the very late '60's/early '70's that "Album's" (33 1/3 rpm) 12" vinyl and FM finally became the dominant listening medium.

    (FFW, you're "Ol Skool" if you still buy CD's instead of downloading MP3's to your I- pod)

    Jeans and a sweater were the de rigueur of ski apparel when I learned to ski...unless you wanted to look Ghey in a 1 piece black Lycra suit.... unless you were a women ... especially at my local hill... the Playboy Club at Lake Geneva,WI

    As far as MJ, it was the Jackson 5 when I grew up. He didn't freak out until I was long out of college.

    I remember going to plenty of school "Sock Hops", growing up in Chicago, and dancing to what later would become Styx and REO Speedwagon.

    And the next day I'd be rollin' my full rigid Schwinn "10 spd" over all the Forest Preserve/ State Park "hiking" trails (ST) from northern IL to southern WI

    Oh, I guess that is older than "Ol Skool, just call me an "Old Fart"

    Never saw Styx or REO at a sockhop, but spent tons of my hard earned part-time pizza cook salary on concert tickets and shirts

    I am sure that I am ol skool, not just because I fall in between this description by onbelay and the one provided by slowerthansnot, but because my 16 & 18 year old sons tell me so.

    and for the record, once you get past Ice-T, there is no such thing as good rap.

    Hey guys, there a new style of music called hip hop. Not sure if it's similar to sock hop but you should all check it out. Call me back doggie.

    Abe Simpson may have said it best:

    I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

    poster's remorse?
    so what was #4?

    . . .

    i remember bombing down belcher @ white ranch (on a rigid hardtail, natch), wearing sweatpants, sneakers, and one of those styrofoam helmets w/ a hairnet...
    came in too hot to that bottom turn and laid the bike down, sliding for a good 20 yards, literally shredding both my sweats and my thigh underneath.

    good times.

    .And following our will and wind . . .
    . . .We'll ride the spiral to the end
    and may just go where no one's been.

    When you realize rap really isn't music. Rhythmic poetry, or even art, but not music.

    Then you're old skool

    I've noticed I'm old skool snowboarding but not mountain biking. The difference, I'm excited for all the new bike stuff and new types of riding. I don't ride slopestyle but I love watching it. Snowboarding...I think the baggy pants kids on rails just need to go buy a skateboard and get off the mountain.

    But this correlation could be made to slopesytle guys who should just ride BMX by old skool bikers, but its not made by me despite my awareness of it.

    Thus, old skool snowboarder, but not mountain biker. For reference mt biking = 5 years. Snowboarding = 14 years.

    i remember bombing down belcher @ white ranch (on a rigid hardtail, natch), wearing sweatpants, sneakers, and one of those styrofoam helmets w/ a hairnet...
    came in too hot to that bottom turn and laid the bike down, sliding for a good 20 yards, literally shredding both my sweats and my thigh underneath.

    good times.
    If you wore a helmet, you're not old skool.
    A man must have enemies and places he is not welcome. In the end we are not only defined by our friends but those against us.

    I still remember learning to snowboard and being the minority on the slopes. It was something like 7:1 skier to boarder ratio. There was literally one beginner boarder lesson compared to 10 different ski lessons.

    Suddenly, around 2003-2004, after a couple of snowless seasons in Northern AZ, I went to the ski area and realized there were at least 2:1 boarders to skiers.

    Frankly, I hate all those boarder kids and I disdain park riding. I also won't hesitate to run over teenagers who do the 'falling leaf' all the way down a steep black diamond and wipe what little base is on the mountain, off. Nothing is funnier to me than listening to their conversations before hitting the lift.

    Boarder 1: "Dude, that was sick brea, did you see how awesome I was going on that black diamond run?"

    Friend: "I know brah, it was bomb."

    A few minutes later, you see the same kids rolling down the hill, face planting and doing some 'gnarly' flips.

    Sick dude, sick.

    Please see above from Gene. I can't express in these keys how incorrect you are

    If you wear a Members Only jacket and have a moustache, you might be old school.

    you know you're old school when you're walking thru vail with your 10 yo board and a bunch of groms tell you so. And your first board was a sims halfpipe from 1987

    Granted those people drive me nuts too. But you forgot the whole family who skis. They've got that F%#kin kid on the leash, they fall off the chairs, snowplow across the entire traverse, help their kids go to the bathroom even though they're 8 years old, and talk about hot chocolate afterwards.

    See, being old skool always seems to go hand in hand with being a hater

    Would you rather they let the kid run free? And at least they're not lettin him poop all over the f$%^kin trail.
    Oops, wrong rant thread...

    We're only half a season away from the leash thing ourselves. I'll make sure I watch out for you in your one piece suit.
