Alfredo was particularly impressed with lead singer Alex Turner's slick hairdo and his thickly-accented vocals and pointed lyrical style (which comments on British youth culture) are also pretty...Read more

Mr Eric Koston will go down in history as one the greatest street skaters of the modern era.

This incredibly cool and talented late bloomer is one of Alfredo’s favorite people.
