I did a transcribed interview with James for this new website I'm working on. @doublesteveburger did the artwork for it. Go have a read if you want.

Nice interview! Sorry Nine Club.

Always dug his skating and was rooting for him in the nollie tre contest. Hopefully we get some more.

Good stuff! "Fuck no!" to the nine club gave me a good chuckle.

Props to Monkey for yet another fine piece of skournalism.
Also, to doublesteve for some very cool illustrations.
Nice work, gents!

I don't know if it's on my side or not but the page won't load. I like the unicorn though, would definitely buy a sticker.
I don't care what BA says, he's not fucking 6'4.

It still shows on my end. PM me if you still have issues. I can send you a file.

And there should be some stickers of that unicorn soon. Doublesteve killed it with that one.

This is nice, I like this. Keep it up, Monkey! The “balding motherfucker” line to JT made me spit out my afternoon coffee

thanks for interviewing him, mcpott. seems like a cool dude with a good head on his shoulders. 

EDIT: also the "what's up you balding motherfucker" story was really funny.

Well done Monkey! He's the one dude besides Jamie Thomas who made it in skating from this state. Grew up skating around each other.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I’m stoked people are liking it. I do have more of these already lined up. I also plan to do my best to bring new stories to these interviews and avoid rehashed ones.

That was great! I didn't know any of those Hardy stories. It's pretty eye-opening to find out that his sponsors really leaned into the "Southern Bad Boy" image as a marketing ploy.

Solid work on this one.  James is one of the illest.
