Parrothead has a lot of time on his hands and recently sent this e-mail out to all the US skatemags:-
Hello. My name is Mark Anthony. I am a professional skateboarder from the baltic islands (Mallorca is my one). I am thinking of making my move to the US in search of greater things to overcome.
However in doing so, I would need to make sure you were interested in dealing with my coverage requirements. If we could set a meeting a few days after my arrival (to deal with the time difference) for the magazines and filmers (seperately, of course), I can start arranging my coverage. You could show me the spots where others have failed and I will overcome them.
Unlike most skateboarders nowadays, I am poficient in Street and Vert skating. I want to appear in the same way many Europeans and Brazillians have recently, as if from nowhere. I fly to San Francisco Intl on the 5th of September from the UK after my short stop there. From then I am free to move around whereever. I look forward to hearing correspondence from you. If the US is the dream I have hoped, then we can all benefit from this experience.
Thank you for your time
The only people to bother replying to this shite were not surprisingly Big Brother:
big brother magazine will make your dream of becoming the baltic bob burnquist, or the baltic tom penny, or the baltic bob penny, whatever you like, a reality. we will drop everything we're doing and just follow you around for however long you want us to. we'll even pay you. so call us when you arrive. we'll even dedicate a whole issue to you and call it "baltic brother!" how's that? you rip mark! and we love you! and if you need a sponsorship we have two imaginary board companies in our dreams. one is whale cock skateboards, while the other is a fag company called, west hollywood skates. pick us please. but don't kill us and stuff is in a board bag and bury us in the desert, ok?
