Accidental Machines: Intro & Ben Schwab profile

Accidental Machines

Accidental Machines was Mindgame’s farewell gift to the rollerblading industry.

The 56 min. video dealt with themes ranging from the state of the industry, to the dual lives of pro-skaters, to the absurdity of popular trends.

Herein lies the video’s intro, featuring the skating talents of Dustin Latimer, Aaron Feinberg, Chris Farmer, Brian Aragon, Billy O’Neill, Don Bambrick, and Ben Schwab, the motion graphic expertise of Matt Andrews, and the song “The Spell” by The Black Heart Procession, courtesy of Touch and Go Records. Written and Directed by Shane Coburn. Produced by Trendkiller, Inc. (R.I.P.)

    A nice reminder that Mindgame was the best and always will be.

  • Gopher

    Mindgame/Shane Coburn needs to re-release all the videos. Package it up and release a boxset. Mindgame Boxset.

  • Al

    “…Mindgame Boxset.”
    +1

  • Gopher

    Brain Fear Gone, Words, What do you Believe In, Bang, Accidental Machines, the whole Trendkiller/Mindgame catalogue. Who knows how DL would feel about it, but maybe he could get a nice cut as well. People need to witness these videos again. I wouldn’t mind getting rid of some video tapes also. :)

    Mindgame always made their team do the lamest things…

    Billy with the sign
    Aragon with the strings
    Chris with the clothes
    Don with the hypnosis

    Just bad ideas, ugly imagery. You’d think one of them would say, “look Shane I’m an adult, and I’m not doing this.” Guess not.

  • Yayo

  • Wrekshop Ryan

    LISTEN BASTARDS: no matter you like it or not THIS VIDEO KILLS! why every fag speaks about the music and non skating scenes?? If you SKATE you HAVE TO pay attention to SKATING !

  • aggroskater414

    I loved this company and always will. I wish they were still around they had some of the best quality wheels you could find. They also always had a sick ass team that skated for them. I just wish that this final video had a complete section of Feinberg and a better section on Latimer. The video just like all of their videos is sick. R.I.P. Mindgame. And hopefully you can make a return to the game possibly some day. Here’s hoping and wishing. :)
