I SKATE ALONE

Think of HOT TOWN as a fungus: what you see is the MUSHROOM, the "fruiting body," but really, underneath that fruiting body is an enormous, intricate, and complex web of mycelia (fungal structures akin to plant roots). Those mycelia are always active, underneath the earth's surface, spreading, growing, excreting enzymes, etc, but at the right times and under the most favorable conditions, mycelium fuse together, and a primordium, or "baby mushroom," begins to form. This ultimately grows into what we know as mushrooms. Sometime this fruiting body persists for a few weeks before it releases spores and then degrades into itself again and sometimes this fruiting body lasts for mere seconds before it's completed its final stage of its life cycle.

Maybe it will reappear one-day as something greater, different, and more important. This is supposedly the last installment of the HOT TOWN video clips, but just like mushrooms, the mycelium of HOT TOWN continues on:
