Butter TV Data Recovery

If you've followed JP Primiano of "Butter TV" on social media recently you probably saw he ran into a bit of hard drive trouble. "How bad is it"?  You may be asking yourself. Full on data-recovery-service bad, and if you know anything about data recovery, it's not cheap. "But JP, you're one of the most prolific skate video content creators of the past five years, surely you backed up your hard drives regularly, right"? Another completely fair question you may be asking. But no, the most prolific skate content creator of our time DID NOT regularly back up his media, and for this he 100% deserves to get roasted. What the hell is wrong with you JP?

With all of this being said, if there is anyone who is deserving of a little community support right now it is 100% him. This dude has single handedly reinvented and reinvigorated the contest edit category.

He's created a series of short form documentary style pieces called "Action Figures" to give us all insight into the personalities of people working hard to make it happen in the world of skating. 

He's created an awesome series of sections for long time friend, and NYC native, Justin Brasco for some reason.

And presuming all of this data is 100% recovered, he has multiple high profile projects in the pipeline, including Winterclash 2020 contest coverage, Action Figures with Jon Julio, and another Action Figures project with Soichiro Kanashima, to name a few.

And for all of this, Butter TV has never asked for a dime (he's not even asking for one now, he currently has no idea I'm doing this). JP has always been dedicated to the promotion of inline skate culture, and he doesn't intend to stop any time soon.

Donate a few bucks, and make sure you roast him in the comments because he deserves both of those things.
