Tommy Boy out of San Francisco and SHOCK emailed me earlier in the day about the SHOCKXI Roll NY collaboration that is in the works as well as letting me know that his interview with Staten Island’s own Franco Cammayo was up on his site. This video interview took place during Tommy Boy’s stay in NYC back in March at Billy O’Neils place. This is a really chill interview that’s relaxed and just lets Franco talk about his everyday life giving the online viewer insight into his skating life and day to day schedule. The video interview is followed by some truly amazing photos of Franco taken by Brandon Smith. Check the interview page here to see the photos. Thanks Tommy Boy.

Kevin Yee – Wall tap video still

The guys over at the popular west coast website, stabyourselfintheface, made a trip to New York City and sessioned the world famous Brooklyn Banks. Check out their post to see a West Coaster’s point of view of the famous skate spot. “This spot is a downhill shoot into brick laden and piss stained blade heaven. To make things even better, this spot is now fully legal to skate which has lead to an infiltration of ramps, rails, and other obstacles to add to enhance the spot. Tommy and I have both been watching this spot in videos for our whole lives, wanting to skate it, and so being there finally was bliss” – Wolfman.

Joey G, one owner of Casualty clothing, has been interviewed by Tommy Boy of Mr. Tommy Boy emailed me personally to let me know about the interview with Joey. This isn’t your typical boring interview. It provides a lot of laughs and insight into the Casualty brand and gives a few start up tips on how to get started with making clothes. Don’t believe me? Here’s one of the many funny questions and answers from the interview.

In Home Alone part 1 Kevin saves the household all by himself. Do you think Kevin is a little bitch for not being an NRA member and just shooting those motherfucking robbers?

He had to set up all those stupid traps when he could of just blasted larry in the face and jacked that other hoe-made bitch-ass robber.
