What do you prefer, some sort of healthy cold cereal like mueslix or something warm like cream of wheat?

Did you make congas a part of your musical repertoire to save leg strength (in comparison to traditional drum kit type drumming) for skating? 

also

What do you prefer... A woman that can "make it clap" or a woman that can "make it clean"?
I like my women the same way I like my personified cups of coffee...black...strong...and proud.

I dare you to film a day skating with a pair of stock trucks or a friend's set up who chronically cranks their trucks tight.

How much do you think that would mess you up?

For even more fun, find a friend you know who skates with their trucks cranked down and force that dude to skate your board and film it for a day simultaneously.

I hope neither of you get hurt during this experiment.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

What was your reasoning for that square nose shaped Supernaut board?
 And how long did you end up skating boards with that shape?

Hey Matt, your tincan folklore part still amazes me. Can you explain the physics behind that bs 360 with the quick nose manual (at 3.20 in the section), I've been trying it numerous times but I can't seem to get it right, what's the key!?

for those who don't have any idea what I'm talking about:

so rad to see you sharing skating with your son and i'd love to be at that level on day. my kids are really young and love skating but their young age makes it so that i have to choose either get a skate session for myself or to spend the session spotting them skating because they can't veture out on their own yet and don't have the patiences to take turns yet. at what age did your son start doing his own thing so you could both enjoy the session together and how did you work your way up to that point from when he was a toddler?

That I-path promo from a few years back is still in circulation for me.  I give you credit for that.
Favorite vacation destination?  Skate or non skate, doesn't matter.
Also, do you know Opie?

I was chattin with Ol' Dirty Watson in the ask Karl thread recently where I mentioned I was a big fan of the early IPATH days a few years back. Glad to see you're still doing well with them. Respect to Pailes too if you see him. Anyway Scientist, Tubby, Jammy or Scratch?

How did riding for supernaut come about and how long did you skate for them?
Did you ride for sheep shoes too? You were in the end of the video life of leisure.
What about riding for antihero? You were on tour with them for tent city and even rocked one of their flannels for an ipath ad.
Thanks for the years of loose skating and doing it for the love.

Any unusual iPath tour stories?
I get to see Devil semi regularly and his little dude is rad as hell. My wife and I aren't into having little ones, but that'll give me more time to be a god uncle and teach Devil's spawn to slang weed.

has business ever gotten in the way of any friendships?

whats the real story behind Ipath cats? they scooped it, didn't put your name on it or give you royalties but you're still with them? are they taking good enough care of you now to make up for it?

Anything involving Fred Gall would be good.

Does bombing hills ever get sketchy with your setup?

Will there ever be a new Stereo video?

Fanning out, but love your skating and your thoughts and opinions on skating.
