The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. I find it hilarious that some think we’re supposed to give a shit about videos of hipster kids pedaling their little hearts out and skidding through intersections when we have Danny MacAskill, Steven Hamilton, et al throwing down like this. “It’s a different aesthetic” blah blah. Fuck you. This video was a damned Rembrandt by comparison to every fixie video’s “macaroni-and-construction-paper-picture-made-by-someone-else’s-kid-so-who-gives-two-shits” yawn appeal.

    And some people think a Pollock is just splattered paint. If you can’t appreciate each for their own difficulty and talent then I don’t know what to say. It’s not a competition.

    I won’t argue with you. “Modern art = I could do that + yeah, but you didn’t.”
