post-blind "retirement era" gonz interview with thomas campbell, amongst other goodies.
granted there is always gonna be a big question mark surrounding this "lost" period... some reports claim he never quit skating during this time (although this interview seems to suggest otherwise). regardless, we can at least take comfort in knowing that there's no embarassing photos of gonz getting his chris fissell-on at a slow crawl in enormous orange raver pants and a visor. not that he ever would've but i find it entirely fitting that he opted to go into "hiding" instead.
that top joint evidently is the product of gonz's first photo shoot with spike jonze... mark found a mannequin underneath the ramp and so it goes. super good.
speaking of which, there's an amazing article written by spike in the new 100th issue of juxtapoz that's definitely recommended. i cheated and snatched that bottom dork photo from there. i must've had that original poster up on my wall for years.
and for all the shiloh requests... a post is coming soon but until then, maybe this will help.
