Growing up, Jeremy Klein was one of my favorite skateboarders because it seemed like he was into all the stuff that I was: Are you talking about the one time we were on tour where Tony smoked and Berra got bummed? At the time Birdhouse made these hats, with my name and Birdhouse Projects embroidered on them in this cursive font. In the Hook-ups video, Destroying America how did you get away with knocking down Destroying america hookups t-shirts these trees with your van?
We realized after making The End it was easy to just go and drive over stuff. I actually go a little slower than him, he Destroying america hookups t-shirts goes full blast.
We did all the stunts except for when the van is exploding and stuff like that. When the van got stuck on a tree or bushes how did you get it out? Well this one time Destroying america hookups t-shirts got the van stuck on a tree trunk, it bent a big tree down, and we basically did a grind up it. The van was lifted up about 2 or 3 feet. We called a tow truck to come and get it out but our van was so stuck, that it started pulling his truck backwards and pulled it into a little ditch, so his shit was stuck too.
We had to call another tow truck, basically a semi truck, to get his tow truck and our van out. Did you guys ever gangbang in the Hookups Destroying america hookups t-shirts on tour? Everything is so much more organized now so it seems like all that shit is going down.
What does organized have to do with getting chicks though? Organized like, well now when a skater comes out with a shoe, his shoe company has a party for it.
A release party for a shoe. Like OK, are we gonna have a release party for every single deck too? What it has to do with getting chicks is, that maybe Target has an ad saying that you know, one of these riders who is sponsored by Target is gonna be in the parking lot.
Have you ever been to a Street League event? I probably should, it would probably be fun to screw around at. Whoever designed that, why would they think that would be a good idea? People riding for Oakley and stuff, when I was growing up people that Destroying america hookups t-shirts Oakley were lame. It just seems like if you are that big and doing that well in skating, you could pick a company that is a little bit cooler than Oakley.
I mean where does it stop? Do you think you used your money wisely throughout your career? How much money were you making on board royalties when you Destroying america hookups t-shirts riding for World Industries back in the day? At the end of the year my mom had to pay my taxes. I thought she was just lying to me and saying that to make me try and save, but realistically I had to give the money to the government.
What was the best selling Hook-ups year? All really crazy years.
How much money were you making? What were these limo nights you used to do? How did you not get kicked out of the limo?
We basically just used to bring fireworks everywhere. There was a Birdhouse party at a bowling alley, where my friend Brad did this thing called lazy bowl.
He would throw the ball sitting in a chair from like where you eat, all the way down the lane. One time it bounced up and hit a worker in the hip. Did Tony [Hawk] ever get mad when you would light fireworks at his parties or get kicked out?
