PLAYING FAVORITES WITH DAVE WATTIGNY
Least favorite food?
I'm over Tex Mex.
Favorite Record of Past 10 Years?
Any Wes Anderson soundtrack.
Raddest old school Lafayette skater, pre-1988?
Wow. That's tough. It’s tie between Heath Copes and Charlie Thomas.
Charlie Thomas, late 80s
Raddest new school skater?
DJ Goudin or Sam Breaux. The way someone skates is so hard to judge.
WTF was up with skaters and those big ass Jango/JNCO jeans in the 90s? It was like Elephantitis of the bell bottoms.
Aerodynamics! I guess some of those kids were into raves. I never wore that stuff.
Then vs. Now
Favorite land mammal that isn’t a rat?
My dog buzz (Australian Scarrier).
Favorite worst movie ever made?
Favorite Nutty Historical Figure?
Weapon of choice?
Favorite Truck Stop food when on road?
Most necessary item to bring on road?
A good attitude.
Favorite icon who isn’t a skater?
Mark Zuckerberg – the guy who owns Faceballs. That guy made it happen...chess style.
Favorite reason to party hard Bon Scott-style?
You can't take the party with you when you die. You got to leave the torch behind for the young bucks.
Favorite reason to call your grandmother up and talk to her in a weird voice like Dave Mustaine of Megadeth?
Because she can still tell it's me under all the misbehaving.
