A Who's Who of No One Knew

Ah Litmus. At the time this seminal work came out I was deep into my retro thought process, sorting out how to simply understand the longboard. While Kidman et al were exploring all sorts of new throwback reengineered modes of riding and filming, I was vacillating between watching my bootlegged VHS copies of "Slippery When Wet" and "Barefoot Adventure" and smallish days out at Miramar and Santa Claus Lane. And as ever, it has been my hallmark to deprive credit where credit is due. But you can't argue with the ground shifting beneath your feet, even when you don't know it. In a few years there will be a 20th anniversary hoopla about that film I hope.
