iskateseattle: Do your feet ever get really stinky after a day of skating?
Sometimes when I go on tour, I forget to bring socks, so they get pretty stinky.
derek: Did you have to work hard to get where you are, or did things just happen?
It was a lot of hard work, but there was also a lot of good fortune involved. But it wasn't really hard work, cuz I was doing what I wanted to do.
Icetre: Why didn't you go on the Wild Ride this year? I was lookin' forward to seeing you!
I had a family emergency. I really wanted to go, but sometimes family comes first. After Wild in the Streets, I joined Heath [and the other bikers] on the ride home from Chicago.
alivekennedys: What would you order for your final meal?
Tofu scrambled hash.
alivekennedys: How many times during the day do you look at yourself in a mirror?
I've never seen myself.
zacharypoopman: If you knew you only had one day to live, what would you do on that day?
That's a good question. I would go to Giraffe Manor in Kenya. That's where all these giraffes roam around.
zacharypoopman: What do you do when you like a girl and she says she just wants to be friends?
Change her mind. Just put on the charm.
zacharypoopman: Who's your favorite overall person in the whole world?
That's a hard question.
zacharypoopman: Do you write poetry?
No, I don’t write poetry. Sometimes when I'm drawing, I write down sentences that sound good to me. I write down my thoughts and make them sound a little poetic, but I definitely don’t write poems.
zacharypoopman: Are you a vegetarian?
Yes, but I do eat fish once in a while.
zacharypoopman: What do you do when someone wants to fight you?
I guess it depends on who that someone is and what the matter is. Either fight 'em if the cause is right, or talk your way out of it.
Stereotype: Do you ever go through periods when you're not skating good and you hate it; but then after a short while, you go through a period where you're landing everything thing and loving it? That happens to me a lot.
Yeah, sure. I go through ups and downs. I can't recall ever hating skating, but it does get frustrating sometimes.
livefreeordie: How many girls did you nail in high school?
I dropped out of high school because there wasn't much nailing going on.
alivekennedys: What would you do if a girl grabbed your ass at a demo?
I guess it would depend on the girl. I'd maybe throw her a wink or something. I'm not really into that sort of thing at demos.
livefreeordie: Narrow shoes or wide shoes?
In between. My foot's not exactly narrow, but I don't want to look down at a big, fat sausage, either.
AKsk8er: Why didn't you go on the 2006 King of the Road Tour?
I just decided to go to New York to shoot photos and hang out with friends.
englishjosh: Do you think you are living life to the fullest? If not, then how could you do so?
I was just thinking last night about how I've been really enjoying the past couple of weeks. I have no regrets about the levels of fun I've been having lately. I've just been spontaneous--traveling around, skating a lot, having fun with friends and seeking the un-boring.
SilentSkater: Do you like sloppy joes?
No, I don’t like sloppy joes, cuz I don’t eat meat. My aunt used to always make those and everyone would get all excited, but I'm not a big onion fan, either.
AKsk8er: What was that big joke about you and Carrot Top?
I was dating this girl--a musician named Chan Marshall--for a while, so Ed Templeton and Giovanni Reda joked around and made up fake stories about me hanging around with B and C list celebrities like Carrot Top.
The interview is over. Don't ask any more questions.
