Recently Dylan Rieder, “the most handsome man in skateboarding”, did an interview with Chris Nieratko for Monster Children. Take from it what you will. We’ve put a bit of it below. You can read the full interview, HERE.
What do you know about Dyrdek buying The Workshop?
It’s awesome. I just found out the other day. If anybody should own The Workshop it should be him; he was there when they were naming it with Neil Blender. He’s been on forever; I think it’s great. I don’t think anything is really going to change. It doesn’t affect the team. Workshop is in a good place right now.
What if his first order of business was to put Berra back on the team?
HA! We would not allow that. He’s claiming that Dill is now the President and AVE is the Vice-President. I think I’m the Treasurer.
You’d make a sexy secretary. Let me ask you this, say you got burned in a fire and you weren’t handsome anymore, would you kill yourself?
What are you trying to say?
Once you’ve gone handsome, you can’t go back.
Well, hopefully I’ll be married to a rich, successful, beautiful women by then and if that happens I’ll just ride her coattails and stay in the house.
What if you could get plastic surgery to have any one person’s face you wanted? Who would it be? Young Burt Reynolds?
Kris Kristofferson? Who rips? Who is a ripping human being?
Clint Eastwood is a badass and pretty badass looking.
All those years of running Kate Moss t-shirts and griptape, did she ever take notice? Did you ever hook up with Kate Moss?
No, she didn’t notice me. I was trying to put that buzz out into the universe and thought I’d get a return but it didn’t happen.
If you had to choose between Kate Moss, Daria or the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, who would you choose?
Damn! That’s huge! That’s hard. The Swedish one or the American one? Probably Rooney Mara. I just saw that movie and she rips in it. I think Rooney is the youngest so I’d say her.
What would you do for money if skateboarding went out of business tomorrow?
Start working at McDonalds? Sell my house and start cleaning houses? Probably move back to Westminster and become a barber, like my dad. I have that hook up. He’s cut hair for as long as I can remember.
Straight out of the artsy bunghole of the skateboarding industry comes some news on the art scene. Firstly, we found out Russ Pope will be putting on his first solo art show. The show, titled Tax Included, happens April, 5th, (this Thursday) at the AR4T Gallery in California. Skate Warehouse is a big fan of Pope’s, from his work with Scarecrow to Creature to Fallen Footwear to Vans. We even rock one of his original painting out in the shop (seen below). Check out some of the Pope goods we’re carrying at SW now. Click the pics for more info.
In more artist news we’re proud to announce a load of Stereo Sound of Silence decks featuring the artwork of Don Pendleton. Pendleton, known over the years for his work with Alien Workshop, Element, and others, is a prominent figure within the skateboard industry. Check out Little Giants, a video about the man and the decks at SW. Click the picture below for more info.
