If you didn't grow up in the era of when Big Brother Magazine hit the scene, I feel sorry for you. As a youngster, there was nothing better. These days, pornography, funny articles, hot girls and skateboarding are just a click away - but in the early 90s, these were all found in different places and all were pretty hard to get hold of. When Big Brother appeared at our local shop, everyone was instantly obsessed. Everything you wanted to see and read, all in one place. Add to that, it usually had a skateboarder on the cover, so your mum wouldn't know that you were spending all night looking at tits.
Booze, drugs, girls and of course the best skateboarding were all found in the this constantly evolving masterpiece. The different shapes and sizes that the magazine came in didn't make for a tidy book shelf, but Rocco and the team didn't give a fuck about your OCD.
Sean Cliver, Jeff Tremaine, Marc McKee, Pat Canale, Chris Nieratko and many others all made names for themselves within this uncensored paradise. Another unorthodox genius who went under the nom de plume of Earl Parker wrote for Big Brother and was even the editor for a while. Jenkem interviewed him a while back and got some great stories, one of which Earl has elaborated on for us. Erotic Semi-Skate-Related stories are all the rage at the moment, so sit back and enjoy Earl's special take on the subject.
