International camel botherer and Leicester/London local Sam ‘SPT’ Taylor disconnects himself from the blogging mainframe to drop his ‘Favourites’ for your eyes and brain this week, so have a gander below now, and check the ‘SPT and Joe Sivell at St Albans’ Science edit at the bottom of the page.

Favourite:

Way to start the day:
Coffee and shower.

Skatespot:
The Quay all day.

Skatepark:
Boardroom/Mile End.

Song to listen to when skating:
On the way to a spot, erm, Dinosaur Jr ‘Kracked’.

Skate video:
Static 3.

Skate section:
Jerry Hsu, Bag of Suck.

Movie:
Die Hard (the whole Quadrilogy)

Band:
Right now I’m pretty into Pavement.

Lateralus or The Chronic.

Person:
Bart Simpson or Ed Templeton, I’m not sure who’s better.

Material Possession:
Coffee whisker to make rad latte’s.

None skating pass-time:
Warm beer and cold women.

Leicester skater:
Matt Mills or Beaver.

Skate trip to date:
The first time I went to London when I was about 14 and saw Tony Hawk do a rad gymnast plant on a monster vert ramp.

Time in your life:
Now.

Blog:
www.wicked-land.blogspot.com – The best shit ever, the guy who does it is a genius. Or www.megaskull.blogspot.com – my flat mate Kyle’s drawings are pretty special.

Brand of booze:
Heineken or K cider if I’m poor, depends how far into my uni year I am and if my loan is drying up. White Russians if I’m super rich.

Trick on ‘HTL: North Vs South’:
Joe Sivells scar.

Special move in a game of SKATE:
Fakie lazer flips.

YouTube clip:
Unforgivable # 2.

Board, ever:
My first board, Jamie Thomas skeleton Zero thing. It had painted edges but how was I to know that was a bad thing.

Andy Simpson quote:
”That’s what is ruining the skateboard industry” About most things he sees in mags or online. Haha.

Comedy incident involving Simpson:
Watching porn on a projector in his ‘man room’ or when he got into a fight with about 30 townie kids down Syston skate park. At one point he warned the kid how easily he could kill him. Simps has too many gold moments, I love it.

Disturbing experience:
When my mate, Wilko, broke his wrist about a year into skating when we were 13ish. On one of those stupid argos McGay rails. Shit was bent yo. Scary.

Tip to the reader:
Go on my blog – www.bloganddie.blogspot.com – It doesn’t get as much love as it used to but I’m planning on laying low for a bit then coming back like Penny or Mariano. Then buy one of the new Science boards. And buy me a drink if you see me out.
