When you're a drunk you will blow all your money. No matter how much you make.

Does he have a board sponsor? I'm so out of the loop.

To me MJ will always be one of the goats, best style and trick selections, and compared to MC, MC has nothing on MJ. I've never been able to enjoy his parts I don't know why but he has always seemed like one those collegebros who never grew old. yeah he had one of the best lines ever but other than that mehh.. I don't believe that MJ is telling the whole truth but I'm certain crailtap has fucked people over. There's no way everyone has left if it wasn't for some shady shit.

Side note

I started skating in 2000. I remember thinking Marc Johnson was black because his portrait on an A-Team deck in the CCS Catalog made him look like a straight up black dude.

I can't find the board graphic on the internet anywhere but Tony Hark was doing an invert on the cover.

There was a big controversy a while ago when he switched from lakai to Adidas. It was announced in the away days video. Lakai was left with a large amount of a new order of MJ shoes that they obviously couldn't market with his name on them. Mike Carroll lashed out in a jenkem interview in the days following Away Days and publicly kicked him off chocolate. This video is the first time MJ has really responded. I think that's everything.

This is so confusing to me, like why do they even have a contract if it allows you to switch sponsors without even informing the old sponsor, and also allows the sponsor to make serious pay cuts just like that? And how can you order five months worth of shoes when the pro could just dip like that the next day?

I'm sure a pay cut is agreed upon. When you dedicate an entire Jenkem interview to the evils of corporate shoes, it's hard to jump ship as soon as your current sponsor needs to renegotiate. Deals change.

Not paying him the agreed upon amount should void the contract. Ok cool, you walk away. You still have to find a replacement for that income. Even with someone with Marc's demand, it might be awhile before you hammer out a deal with the next guy and get that next paycheck.

What's the story behind Marc and Emerica? When they talked about his first shoe it seemed like there was bad blood there. I feel like I remember hearing about him not being happy about the design process behind his second shoe. Did they just pay him royalties he felt like were unfair?

The thought of someone not going skating to watch The Princess Bride is hilarious. I wonder who it was.

Caswell was diagnosed with vertigo, give him a break.� I'd hope it was someone else that MJ was bummed on.

Caswell is one of my all time faves..the thought of that scenario makes me like him even more.

Were they ever on Enjoi at the same time? If so it is cutting it close as he was on Toy til at least 2002. It was probably Louie.

They weren't on Enjoi at the same time. Caswell didn't get on until after MJ left and I think I remember reading that it was because MJ didn't like him or something along those lines.

The best would be if it was actually Puelo, but he actually wasn't watching Princess Bride, he just didn't want to show someone a spot.

They wanted him to skate bigger shit, just like Creager. I think there was an ad for a separate company (Enjoi?) about things he liked and one was "the freedom to skate WHAT I WANT" or something like that.

IMO no. 18,000 pages is like a coffee break chat when it comes to MJ.

I hope he brought Brink a gift however

I wonder if it drives Brink insane that you can film a podcast in 2 hours, spend another hour doing some editing and get it right on the interwebz vs spending weeks transcribing a traditional interview into print

I'd say so.

Pontus had a shoe on Emerica. I think it was only released in Europe though. I wouldn't know.

I think it was a colorway of the Emerica Tope. I think they released some in Japan too
