If there is one guy who knows how to smile, snus and ride a snowboard, it’s Jonas Carlsson! But when it comes to computers, it’s a whole different ball game! He just bought a new Mac and he has been calling me five times a day with questions like “how do I listen to music?” etc… Anyway, nobody gives a shit about that ’cause he is a really good friend to have and the sickest park slayer around! Jonas, me love you…
