Meet & Greet: Garth Mariano24-Apr-2012
Here at the shiny new ACCLAIMmag.com site, we have a pretty solid crew of contributors repping for the West Coast, including Butter Goods co-owner and designer, jack-of-all-trades, finder of music gems, and all-round nice dude, Garth Mariano.
Garth kindly took time out from having an awesome time over in Perth to chat to us for this week’s Meet & Greet…
My name is… Garth Mariano
By day I… work at Beyond Skate City
By night I… work on Butter Goods
But I’m probably best known for… selling shoes / gripping boards.
My favourite TV show is… The Simpsons (golden era of course)
The last movie I watched was… 5Boro – Join or Die
And I thought it was… bringing real shit back!
The first CD I ever bought was… not sure, I remember having Michael Jackson’s, Dangerous, on cassette when I was real young.
The last was… Yusef Lateef – The Gentle Giant (Vinyl)
I’m addicted to… The Simpsons, buying records, skateboarding, Instagram, burritos.
The best thing about Perth is… the homes!
The worst thing about Perth is… the distance from anywhere else.
Last weekend I… worked at the shop on Saturday and went to a warehouse party in the evening / skated town and went to the City of Rats Premier on Sunday.
The last thing I ate was… Avocado on toast.
My fave youtube vid is: Turn it up!
My computer’s wallpaper is… Bitches Brew
What ACCLAIMmag.com readers can expect from me is… skateboarding, music and far too many Simpsons references.
If I achieve one thing in 2012 I want it to be… Inspire someone to follow their passion! (lil corny, but true)
