In our second edition of Confusion’s HOT SHIT web exclusive, we ask ten questions to Bacon Skateboards concrete killer Thomas Nichols who has Portland blood and raised in Vancouver, Washington. I had interviewers block so to flow some ideas I looked up “famous porn star interview” on the internet and modified the questions for skateboarding… I don’t think Thomas realized the interview questions were a joke and it wasn’t planned as the real interview, but everything doesn’t have to be taken so seriously in life, so we’re rolling with it anyways. It’s only skateboarding, right?
