Glamour, drama and trauma were all evident at the Hollywood premiere of Getting Nowhere Faster. The woman-oriented event was presented by Element in association with 411 and Villa Villa Cola. Cara Beth Burnside, Amy Caron, Jen O'Brien, and Vanessa Torres all skate well in the aforementioned vehicle. Some other peculiar episodes in Getting will arouse both interest and suspicion. Are these wardrobe malfunctions or what? These female skate crews are subjected to misfortunes like being chased by giant talking dolls and having skatepark ghosts stalk them. Perhaps acting awards are in the offing. Skate surrealism meets beats in the best glare send-up since Muska debuted Paris Hilton.
Has the Animal Chin director's cut morphed into another larger, more universal Stacy Peralta video project?
Mofo has retired from flogging cock rings and puss pulls in quick order to passionately pursue publishing his heroically hybridized skate-culture-business gazette Hardtrade. He's been working with a broad brace of notables and seems to be marshalling a diverse information dispensing force. Maybe you could expect Bryce Kanights, John Lucero, Billy Runaway, Welinder, Keith David Hamm, and a couple of Transworld-plants to be in on the genesis of this offense generating mechanism. Mo has also served as narrator on the Scarred for Life Duane Peters video project, which was scripted by Hamm.
In a return to the age of spectacle, expect to see Tony Hawk and the Boom Boom Huck Jam cast tricking live at the Super Bowl. Following this tune up gig, the Birdman, Kevin Robinson, Jesse Fritch and Lincoln Ueda will perform in Orlando at the Universal Studios theme park. Hawk, in demonstration of solidarity with the common folk, was recently seen in Rome hanging with Gwen Stefani, the Cure's Robert Smith, Andre 3000 and Eminem.
