Let the therapy begin.
Anxious, angry, confused? Players, have no fear-Dr. Marco is here.
Marc, I give you serious respect for shreddin’ the hell out of everything, and for opening up this sport for Latinos everywhere. I have a few questions: first of all, what race are you? I’m Puerto Rican, so having a fellow Hispanic snowboarder to look up to is really cool-there’re not a whole lot of us out there.
The other question is, I didn’t start shreddin’ until I was eighteen-if I remember right, you didn’t start until you were seventeen? I’m 21 now, and I still got a lot of progressing to do. My homeboys say that by the time I get good enough, I’ll be too old-they say it’s too late. I tell ‘em, “Too late is when I’m dead.”
And where do you think would be a good spot to move to that won’t make me busted broke ’cause coffee is twenty bucks? I’m from northern Indiana, and I need to get the hell out of here!
Oh yeah, man, I was flippin’ through the channels, and I saw this Johnny Zero show, and the dude looked just like you! Are you Johnny Zero?
What up, Cesar! First off, thanks, homey. I appreciate that shit! I’m Mexican/American, and dass right, I didn’t start snowboarding ’til I was seventeen. So that tells you right there, it’s possible. Anything’s possible if you work at it, which brings me to your third question.
You’re right on point about moving to a dope snowboarding spot to achieve your goals. Think about Utah or Lake Tahoe, California. I moved to Utah, and Snowbird Resort is where I really started learning how to ride bigger and faster like a man, ya heard! Then I started hittin’ Park City and realized how dope ridin’ park is. If you go to Lake Tahoe, there’s Heavenly and all kinds of other dope-ass resorts real close by, too. Utah and Tahoe are where the ill snowboarding is goin’ down and where you can progress the fastest. They have big, steep, natural terrain at their resorts, and both areas get a lot of good snow.
Yo, and about that Johnny Zero dude-I ain’t seen it, but he must be handsome. If any girls ask you-yeah, that’s me.-MFM
Hey homey, I live in Broomfield, Colorado, and I met you back in ’01 at a movie preview at the Ogden theater. Man, you are my biggest inspiration in snowboarding. Hey, my question is, how often do you come to back to Colorado, your home state, to go snowboarding? Hopefully, I’ll see you up at the slopes this season.
Thanks for them props, homeboy. I try to come to Colorado as much as I can just to visit fam and roll with the homeys ‘n’ junk. I usually make it out there for the early season and Christmastime, and then for the contests like the X-Games, The Session At Vail, and the Gravity Games. I’ll pr’y see you for sure, doot. You’ll be with some fly, ill, mountain honeys, right? Good (heheh)!-MFM
Yo, MFM, what up, foo? I collected all those panels fo’ yo’ poster an’ sent ‘em in-and I got no signed poster! You gotta represent. Nah man, I’m just foolin’ wit you. But seriously, I sent it in an’ didn’t get no signed poster.
Hey man, last season at Park City, do you remember when you were in da parking lot and a carload of punks drove by and screamed at you? Yeah, dat was me, dawg! Then later that day you were hitting up the park-and yo, I gotta say I love the way you ride. You were just havin’ fun hittin’ shit. I remember ’cause I was shreddin’ next to you doing stupid shit. Then we saw you again at the top of Bonanza lift-and you ran into my friend when you got off dat lift! That was hilarious, man! I’m lookin’ forward to da new F.O.D.T. video One Love. I heard some sick shit about it. Anyway, I still need dat signed poster, man!
Hahahhaah! Yo, what up, foo, you crazy! Yo, I’ll call the Section homeys right now and tell them to hurry the f-k up with your poster, dun! Yo, but that ain’t me, dog! You gotta get at them Section fools (hahah)! You’re funny, though-you crack me up, man. That shit is crazy fun though, huh? Jus’ rollin’ around the resort, hittin’ alladat stuff! Yeah, One Love is the ill movie for sure, doot, especially the soundtrack and intro. Whoever did them is an ill mothaf-ker.-MFM
