I don't have HBO so I didn't see the documentary. Tony always presents himself well. His story has been thoroughly documented at this point. For a title, "Until the Wheels Fall Off" sounds more Hellride than Hawk. Not that he isn't hardcore about skateboarding, but you get what I'm saying.

I recall Chris Nieratko writing that Tony could hold his own with guys in the party van on a Birdhouse tour article in Big Brother from twenty years ago.

I'm always mildly curious about his board graphics over the years. So many of them just aren't very good and it seems like he has generally good taste overall. The best skater ever deserves better art direction.

What was the skate clothing company that dabbled with perfume/cologne in the 90s? They had Alfonzo Rawls in their ads. I can't recall the name. Pound Attire?

Palace does like Detroit so working with Ford feels possible. They need to bring back the Focus Hatchback. Or a non-exploding Pinto.
