I KID. Looks like mah list of docs to watch is growing. Called Deathbowl to Downtown, this one takes a look at the growth of skateboarding in New York City and the East Coast scene, with a focus on late NYC resident Andy Kessler. Interesting how he had to order his gear from California when he was younger because the scene here wasn’t anywhere near what it is now. Which isn’t to say NYC didn’t drive the music and graffiti cultures that feed skateboarding. The East Coast graf scene would influence a lot of what the West Coast later did. Add it to the cue Sept. 15.
