I bought the April 2009 issue of Transworld so I could check out the Black Label “Skate and Annoy” advert. I was reading a pretty interesting interview with Jason Dill. One question asked if he felt weird about being on the same footwear team as Sheckler, and how could he possibly relate. Dill’s reply was a thoughtful one:
What label are Flaming Lips on? Warner Brothers? Who else is on Warner Brothers?
I thought that was a particularly mature way to look at the situation. Less articulate was his response to how he feels about skateboarding web sites:
Yeah, it’s great for the kids, but we are adults here, we know what’s going on… …that’s cool people shit with their fucking blogs and nightly updates on bullshit. That’s my new shit. Keep me off you blog or I’ll knock you out. I’ve made it known to the bloggers that I am not down…
Fuck you dude. You’re on my blog.
