Sorry to be a talentless aggregator instead of an almighty creator but Mark Gonzales has been on my mindgrapes since I saw him in some skate videos last week, mainly that Fourstar Clothing one in Japan (for title ask Jen Gnar-Gnar?). I can't tell if the man-child act is from all the 90s acid frying his brain or if it helps the gallery people accept his Sidekick art as savantism. He still can move, so whatever, if those fools on the LES keep him in beanies and Lexapro I'm for it like toothpicks in a club sandwich.
Jason Schwartzman has talked to death which bands he likes in various interviews over the last decade and it's pretty clear that he's still got a big ol' aping soft spot for Phoenix and Sloan. It's nice to see that he's started to outgrow Max Fischer a bit at 30 though, that was a long overdue metamorphosis.
See Chloe S. skateboard in the second vid!
