It's time for number 19 in our never-ending series of Blab Interviews conducted by you kids. This month, we're going to hit up Emerica pro Kevin "Spanky" Long for the second time.

Just ask a nice, short question right here in this post and one week from now, I'll choose a few of the best and give Spanky a call. Read his bio and first Blab interview, so you don't ask anything that has already been answered there.

On the cover of TransWorld Skateboarding's November 2006 issue, get a load of globetrotting Emerica pro Chris Senn as he precision grinds over a super narrow, hairy ass, sharp-edged donut at that new gigantic skatepark over in Shanghai, China. It's so burls, there's even a sequence inside.

Seems Senn went on a lil' Oakley team filming mission over there, which also resulted in a 12-page article in this issue. Good job, Senn-Dog! Buy a copy at a skate shop or news stand near you.

Heath's backside 360 was so fast, it didn't even show up in this photo.

In advance celebration of his 29th birthday (which is today, September 5), Emerica pro Heath Kirchart backside 360'd the Mini-Mega Ramp at the Downtown Showdown contest on Sunday, September 3, 2006 to enthusiastic applause, eighth place on that obstacle, and a whopping $50 in prize money.

After laboring so hard over the long Labor Day weekend for such a great big pot o' booty and the resultant mass exposure, Heath is taking time off today to relax and look forward to his assured increase in board and shoe sales. That's how it all works, right? Congratulations, Mr. Heath! Rake it in!
