Say hello to my little friend

One of my greatest influences, the late great Hunter S. Thompson, once said that there was more truth in fiction.

His best examples of this are ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ and ‘Fear and Loathing on the campaign Trail 72’.

I took this pearl of wisdom and applied it to skateboard gossip and news. Obviously some people would get offended by tabloid-esque news reporting, so I called upon an ally, Maxwell Woodger Esq. to dig up the dirt.

It was fun while it lasted.
