The Subsect Grand Opening has received a lot of coverage on this site via announcements, newsletters, news items and even a Feature article. Where is there left to go with this illustrious event? Why, footage, of course! We posted some up a couple of days ago, in case y'aint seen it yet.
Yep, for the second time, you got to fire off some questions at Emerica pro Leo Romero. I recently selected a few and called him up for some answers. Enjoy it, and get ready...
RVCA: When I met you, I asked why you had that camera, and you said to take pictures of hot girls. Is that true, or were you just playing around?
A little bit of both.
hassleposse: How long does it take you to learn a trick? Which trick are you currently working on?
It depends on the trick. Sometimes it's really easy, sometimes it's really hard.
reynold3s: When will we be seeing your pro model from Baker?
I already have one. It's out now, so go buy it.
FoxyRabbit: Do you like color photos or black and white?
I like 'em neon color. No, it doesn't really matter.
FoxyRabbit: Do you like strip clubs?
I'm actually parked at one right now. It's called Ecstacy, at Fairview and Warner in Costa Mesa, California.
FoxyRabbit: Have you ever hit your back really hard while you were skating?
Yeah, my lower back. I can't walk for three or four days.
FoxyRabbit: When are you gonna be on the Baker site?
I don’t know. It’s up to the Baker dudes.
FoxyRabbit: Your new shoe looks sick. How come you wanted to make it so thin and low?
I can't stand thick and bulky shoes, cuz I can’t feel my board.
abec-1: What's the best thing you get out of demos and signings?
A sweet sesh with my bros.
FoxyRabbit: Do you like drawing on other people's stuff? I do.
Yeah, when they don’t know I'm doing it.
abec-1: In videos, you seem like a cool guy. Are you always that energetic?
TheOGBaker: Will you be able to use any footage you filmed for Foundation for the next Baker video, or do you have to re-film all of that?
We're dealing with some legal battles over that right now. Swank's a really nice guy.
abec-1: If Oprah invited you to be on her show, what would you wear?
I'd wear a clear tux.
Quaroon: Who are some of your favorite photographers?
Fuck, I don’t know. I don’t really have any.
deedeedee: Which trick do you break your board on the most?
tommyh: Do you ever wear a cap on top of a do-rag? You play that game?
Only when I sleep.
emericaskate30: Do you like Tech Decking? In an old video part, didn't you say you always have one with you?
Yes, cuz I'm possessed by Satan.
alipunkskater: Can you speak Spanish? What part of Mexico are you from?
Si. The dirty part.
iskateseattle: Is RVCA pronounced R-V-C-A or Ruca? What does it mean?
It's pronounced "Ruca." The "v" is really a "u." It's just a symbol.
bakerkrew3: What is your favorite picture you've ever taken?
I don’t really have one.
bakerkrew3: What is your favorite thing to order when you're at Denny's?
Moons Over My Hammy.
bakerkrew3: Have you ever got mad at a fan before? If so, what did that person do?
They ask for my board way too many times. I don’t really get mad, though, just frustrated.
abec-1: Have you ever eaten pudding without a spoon?
I've eaten pudding off a girl without a spoon.
ZachM: What do you do on those lonely nights at home when you are by yourself?
bakerkrew3: Has a fan ever offended you in any way about being Mexican? If so, what did they say?
bakerkrew3: What do you wear to bed?
Just my shoes.
bakerkrew3: Would you ever settle down in a serious relationship?
I hope not.
abec-1: You look like a really skinny guy. Do you just eat healthy, not eat a lot, or are you one of those metrosexual kind of guys who is worried about his appearance?
I don’t give a fuck. I eat what I want.
bakerkrew3: Have you ever been late to any events because of sex?
We just posted a page on How to Submit a Sponsor Me Video for review here on the Emerica site. So, dive on in and check it, then get busy filming.
