“Skinemax is Koyaanisqatsi for a generation raised on late night television and B-movie VHS tapes. It’s long form entertainment for short attention spans. An hour long VJ odyssey, it will move your body and warp your mind.
A nostalgic look back at a half remembered childhood growing up in the 80s and early 90s, Skinemax takes a close look at the culture of that era. The images that motivated, delighted, and terrified us on the silver screen, set to propulsive modern music that pines for a simpler time.”
When I was 14 years old, I rode a skateboard and carried a MeanStreak in my back pocket to catch tags. FUCT came into existence at that time in my life. I had to hide my shirts from moms and change after I left the house. Some teachers at my high school made us turn them inside out. Along with a handfull of others, Erik basically invented streetwear.
