    My friend and I always get approached by strangers when we're out with our skateboards. I wish a filmmaker would stop us too!

    I really want to see this movie and Mid90s. Not enough movies are made about the skateboarding culture.

    Oh shit, welcome back. Thought you died. Haven't seen this film yet but Crystal's interesting.
    Just out of interest, many interview (like this one) are shot at your house, right? Is this a normal thing or do people come to your house because everybody likes you so much? haha

      Because we often shoot "off-junket," the studio (esp the indies) hasn't rented space for a press day. My home is in the middle of town, easily accessible... and once someone has shot here, they usually prefer to come here than to shoot in some suite somewhere. Also, as the years have gone by, I have come to prefer shooting here. The interviews are almost always better. People can relax. (Note: This is also part of what drove some of the early glories of Marc Maron's podcast... people talking in a garage forget they are going to be exposed.)
