chrome ball incident #68: zen arcade



This is Brian Lotti's pro "flashlight" that he had in transworld (Jan '94) right before he vanished to Fiji or Neptune or wherever the hell he went for a decade. Some great Brittain snaps in this one... looks like Grant seized this opportunity to really let loose at a point when crappy videocaptures were the norm. Compare and contrast.

The top photo is a personal fave from a year earlier.

Man I remember being so weirded out by this interview as a youth. The banana suit ollie is the best though.

Yeah, that frontside ollie is fucking crisp.

Lotti has a new sequence in the latest Skateboarder mag. (AUG 08)

He took off for Hawaii to study Zen Buddhism.

Ripping style holmes.

Can someone post the actual interview? Maybe it was scanned or typed up? dying to read it.

Also, i must be missing the pages of his 08 Skateboarder sequence. Anyone?
