The gospel of Dr. Marco continues to spread. The doc has serious street cred when homeys start naming their mini shreds after him-yeah, you heard, people are naming their li’l ones Marco.
What up, Dr. Marco? Yo, it’s ya man Danny Peezy again. Well guess what, loco? It’s a boy!Danny Peezy
Ha! Damn, congrats, foo! You’re gonna be a coo-ass dad to have! Whoa, dog-are you still doin’ what you said you were gonna do in that last letter, doot? Yo, I don’t know, man! That shit’s crazy, dun! -MFM
Dr. Marco, I got some real-life shit going on. Long story short: my girl of three years cheats on me and expects me to just move on with shit. I punch the wall and break my hand then get arrested while getting stitches. I lost my construction job ’cause I can’t work with a broken hand. And I have huge doctor bills. What to do now? Do I get another job and get a place of my own, or move home to Utah and go snowboarding? Or should I go to college and stay around this hellhole in Washington? I love riding, but I also want to succeed in this game we call life. I hope to hear back from you … I don’t have many friends. Unless you count my cat “Nollie Frontside Kickflip”-my cat is a real pimp.Roger From Washington
You ain’t alone with all of that, doot! I know about five homeys that went through almost the exact same scenario last week! It’s messed up how some of these funny-ass women know how to press just the right buttons, uh? Whatchu needa do is get out of that spot and follow your dreams. What’s wrong with goin’ to school and riding almost every day? Yo, get back to SLC and register at University of Utah-and ride Park City and Snowbird, foo!-MFM
What up, Doc? Thanks for opening The Block at Big Bear-never made it up to Tahoe, but I won’t miss this so close to home. And you kick ass, man. You make snowboarding look good and still keep it your own. But business: I’ve always bought large bindings, but now I wear size nine and a half boots, not the tens I used to. Is there any reason not to go with a medium binding? I don’t know if it’s much different.Paul Spillan
Paul, you should try them mediums to see if you can fit in ‘em all good. I mean, don’t be Cinderella ‘n’ junk, but sometimes if you have too-big bindings, your boot will be shifting around and it will feel like you didn’t tighten your bolts or somethin’. Thanks for them props and support, too, homey! You’re gonna love The Block. I’ll see you up there, doot.-MFM
Dear Doctor Marco, I would like you to know I think your style is sick on handrails. You make the stuff you do on rails look so easy. I haven’t seen your part in Burning Bridges yet, but I heard it’s sick. But I want to know why you act like you’re black? I don’t care how you dress, but what’s with the way you talk?Ben Jacobs
Hahahah! Yo, Benji-boy, whassupp? Yooz a funny-ass little fool! One minute you like my style, and the next, you’re the saltiest li’l cracker chump ever! Hahaha. You should hear me talk when your uptight momma’s around-it gets way worse. Thanks for the props doe, homeboooy.-MFM
What’s up, Dr. Marco? I just bought a house not too long ago on 35th and Irving by North High School in Denver. I know you boned out and moved to SLC. But why did you choose that white-bread town over this dope place? Is the powder as good as they say out in Utard? If you’re ever back in the hood, collecting from hos, swing by and say hi. Oh, and I work for Qwest, so if you owe us any loot from an old bill, I can fix that. Bryan Scott
Naw! Oh boy, you know you f-ked up now, Bryan Scott-you shouldn’t have said that! I got fifteen or sixteen family members in Denver who owe Qwest money, doot-and I ain’t even mentioned none of the homeys yet. They’re pr’y gonna be waitin’ outside your door tomorrow to hit you up on that offer, Bryan! I already called some of ‘em … don’t even be playin’, either, ’cause you already got their hopes up. Word up, and thanks, man-good lookin’ out.-MFM
Doctor, I want to know sometthing. You’re a pretty big guy and you ride a pretty small, wide board. Do you find that is the best way for backcountry riding? Does powder ridin’ have more to do with strength of the rider and width of the board, as opposed to length? I’m 6’3″ and 180 pounds rocking a 164 centimeter board with a wide stance but I’m thinking about downsizing to a 162. What do you think? And another thing, if someone kept Sims afloat, why didn’t you stay there? It’s cool you’re with Lukas again, though-you guys should push each other in the backcountry. Congratulations on moving over to Nitro-I bet they pay good (haha)! Oh, by the way, my woman wants to do you. Ryan
Yeah man, I love wide boards. I gotta ride one anyway, ’cause I got big ol’ feet-but yo, my wide 157 feels like a 162 in the powder. It stomps crazy and floats soooo good! I don’t even know why people would want to ride a skinny board really, unless you’re all into carving or racing! Yeah man, you should try it at least. A wider 160 or 162 would pr’y kill it for you. About the switch to Nitro, man, I never knew how dope a company could be until I started meeting all the people over there who love snowboarding and know how to treat people. I’m not talkin’ jus’ about money neither, I’m talkin’ about truly bein’ an all-snowboarding company. Oh, and by the way, you should let her, hahhhha!-MFM
