Technodrome: "I used to hate skateboarding when I was little and I used to make fun of people for doing it. Now I wish I would've skated back then because I would've been better than I am now. I'll probably be a pro skater instead of doing this art thing because it takes years and years of practice. I respect skating because it's so hard and to learn how takes a lot of falling down and getting back up. It makes you stronger as a person if you actually commit to it. People see you in the street and call you stupid, say that you're going to hurt yourself, but I had goals that I wanted to reach.

"I don't skate as much, but whenever I do it's like a personal quest and shit. I planted the seed to get nice in skating in college from watching my friends do cool shit. It took me a while to get comfortable. I was out in the streets for hours sweating my ass off and hurting myself [Laughs]. I jumped down the stairs in some park and kept busting my ass. When I finally landed it I was like, "I'm never doing this shit again." That shit is not fun [Laughs]. I have it on tape too. I could tell chicks that I did that shit. I'm too old to be jumping down some stairs; it's fucking stupid [Laughs]. Me and one of my boys used to make videos of us skating and fucking around. We posted them on Youtube and called the series of videos "Butt+Talk" [Laughs]."
