Some of the best quotes from the episode:
“I don’t even think he knew I snowboarded, I don’t think Ken had any idea.”
“My logic was like….Two Renees made a straight guy.”
“I’m gonna just dress up like a bum and sell my art… it was almost like a social experiment.”
“I was on my diet back then – just pure tequila in a water bottle.”
“Renee Renee is married with kids – Elton John was married once too.”
“Pheed in the beginning was so cool – you could post a 1500 megapixel image.. it was all of the social media sites designed.”
“It’s not about money ever… I pride myself on that.”
“The stuff I did for Pheed will some how come back to me.”
“I got a million other things, I might as well do a podcast too.”
“Skateboarders are selfless.”
Skateboarders will always make something work and figure it out.
“I sold him on the idea of making a movie about skateboarding and trades.”
“All the skate spots that we skate are made by tradespeople.”
“The one thing I do miss most about living in California is the surf.”
“I’m a full water rat… I’d go creeking – basically tubing without the tube…. I was a total dolphin.”
“At 18 I was homeless in Florida.”
“I’m trying to put skateboarding in a different light to these corporate types.”
On Riff Raff: “The neon icon, I’m like dude come on I was a neon icon before you were Riff Raff.”
