An Ali Boulala edit has been sitting on the back burner for sometime now. It wasn’t until my dear friend Keenan approached me with a song titled “Prince Hal’s Dirge,” by Loudon Wainwright 111 which inspired me right away. Keenan felt the lyrics pertained to Ali’s life and we both liked how dramatic it was. I knew I could express Ali’s career through the song and explore who he is in an honest way. Nobody is like Ali. He’s a true individual, whose skating belongs to another period or perhaps another planet. Maybe one day Ali will return to skating and become king. Until then, this is for Ali, my fellow skateboarders and Keenan, an equally unique individual.
