Marc diagnoses who is dope and what is sick.
Marco takes on the cases white coats won’t touch–like how not to get treated like a bitch and how to spin switch.
Hey Marc Frank, can you do switch backside spins? If so, please explain how, ’cause I can’t do ‘em. Do you listen to music while you’re shredding? What music? And what size rims are on your car? I got some double dubs on mine …
Yeah dog, you just start out doin’ switch everything real small-then work your way up. Start with switch backside 180s and 360s on all the little jumps. You just gotta get used to the awkwardness, so ride switch all the time and do switch tricks on every little bump you see. After a while, it’ll come natural without you even having to think about it. If I’m just ridin’ around the resorts, playin’ around, I mos def got some headphones on. I love ridin’ with music-and it’s all hip-hop. This whole mp3 era is off the hook! Check out Napster, foo! Yo, right now I got black and chrome 24s on the silver Range Rover dun. It’s stooopid!-MFM
Hey Marc, I was wondering if you liked G-Unit, 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, and the whole crew? And if so, why?
Yeah, I like dat shit. They have some good-ass beats and all that … I don’t like how mainstream it is, but what can you do? Sometimes it makes me laugh how they’re all still talkin’ about thuggin’, even though they don’t have to do that shit no more. But that’s jus’ gangsta shit, that’s why it’s good. It’s that “f-k the world” shit, heard!-MFM
Hey Marco, your style’s a big influence on me. Here’s my question: I snowboard in Illinois at the single towrope snowboard park of Raging Buffalo. We have a small group of around 25 good boarders, and it’s cool, but all I ever hear is, “You’ll never make it” and “It’s not like we’ll get anywhere with it,” from kids I know and others I don’t. We don’t have much to work with, but we can try. I’m stuck here until high school’s over, so what’s the call? I’ve been to contests out west, and I make videos-what else can I do? Do sponsors help that much? And what’s the Marco way to deal with all this disrespect? Midwest represent-shout back if you’re backin’ us up.
Yo, the guys who say that really aren’t gonna get anywhere. But guys like you who try and prove them wrong will make it places. I heard that all the time, too, man, and it messed with my confidence-but I just didn’t listen to any of that negative shit. I stayed positive. You just gotta keep goin’ after what you love. Even if you don’t make it, you’ll have way more fun experiences just even tryin’! What are you gonna do, just sit there and kick rocks for the rest of your life? Wondering if you coulda made it? Sponsors do help a little, too. I mean, first, you get free shit, but also, if you do get some free product, you get way more stoked to go out and get even better. It’s a good-ass feeling to have companies just give you shit ’cause you’re good! And about that disrespect thing and what I would do … well, you know what I would do-buss ‘em in their head. Don’t let anybody ever disrespect you.-MFM
