Reading is good.
Overall, I liked the vibe. The songs gave a real "summer" and "happy go lucky" feel to the edit which I liked.
The filming was nothing special. There were some shots I liked, especially at 2:04 and 2:15 - a little switch from the norm. To me it seemed like typical skateboard filming; always with the fisheye and usually close to the ground/followcamming.
The editing was pretty good - I liked how you kept it fast paced. The other option would've been to take a more chill, artistic vibe (like IHateOhio's video) but this one worked well with the music. I noticed that a couple shots were not deinterlaced (or just came out funny on vimeo). The film burns at the beginning of the second song were completely unnecessary. Like I said before, you went for the fast paced edit, and they didn't fit at all...although they were well done.
...and yes, the transition between songs was a tad long. Usually to tranny between songs, putting a funny quote/scene is effective at keeping the viewers attention while moving on to a new song, scene, etc, ya digg?
Again, overall, not bad. Just work on filming and clean up the editing a bit and you're golden.
