Steven Schwoegler…..Pretty much a girl turned Hard Ass Pool Doggy

Posted in Uncategorized on April 30, 2010 by patdarep

As much shit as I have given this kid in the past few years I am surprised he literally hasn’t tried to kill me. He is seriously is one of the best kids around. I met Steven when I used to work at a skate shop and he came in all the time. I literally thought he was a girl. As time went on, he got a job working there and I eventually hired him on as my sub rep to work with me when I did Forum and Circa. I have known Steven for a really long time and we have been through a lot together. Although he is bussing tables and being a pile now, look out for him in the future. His grammar reads like a 9 year old dyslexic kid, but I am pretty sure this kid will do big things….if he doesn’t fuck up like usual.

You’ve gone through some pretty huge changes since I met you 7 years ago as we all have. Can you shed some light on what you were thinking in your “scene” days?

No idea? how old was i at the time? 13? eh fuck it who cares anyways.

We had some pretty fun times working together. What was your favorite thing about working for Coan Ent?

Fuck yea we did…..I’m gonna have to say that not having to work that hard for a lot of money was my favorite part….remember when you told me you’d fire me if i smoked cigarettes? wait you smoke now right?

You just bought a scooter right? Have you and Cody gone nuts to butts on it yet?

Yea, i bought a bowse ass scooter, and actually on the ride home from getting it cody did come with me and we totally went nuts to butts on it….no homo…but then i needed money so i sold it 2 weeks later….good times though

What does your mom think about all the tattoos you’ve gotten recently? Does she think it’s my fault?

My mom is hyped on all my tattoos, and no she knew that i’ve wanted to get a bunch of tattoos since i was little.

What’s with all the nick names? What’s your favorite and least favorite?

HAHA, i don’t even know all of them….. Intern? Prospect? Shmegma (thanks TJ)? shwag bag? dirt weed? it never ends…. If i had to choose dirt weed is the best, just cause its funny. (Ed. note. More nick names: Fourth Meal, Schteeeeeeeeven, Fucktard, Retard, etc.)


Tell me about your role at Community Skate Shop?

well first off, that place is the best…everyone should check it out…. Communityskateandsnow.com…… I work in the shop and i also do the blog…. http://Communityskate.blogspot.com.… best dudes, best place, best shit!

Do you remember when I accidently punched you in the face really hard? Also do you remember when we put you in a box and threw you down that flight of stairs? Should I watch my back one day?

Yea i do forsure, and i think you were there that time whitney flicked a penny across denver park and it hit me in the side of the eye…yea that sucked too forsure….. just watch out fool………

You used to be the deffenition of a snowboard park rat. You were pretty good too, then just stopped and hate pretty hard on it now. What’s your reasoning and also your thoughts about the snowboard industry?

eh, snowboarding itself is cool, but too much money and work…. driving up there, buying a pass…and way too many fucking kooks… i started skateboarding when i was like 11 in Atlanta, and i moved here and thought snowboarding looked cool so i did it….it was super fun when i was young then i just grew out of it…I just snowboarded less and less from that first year and now im just over it, would rather skate, so i sold all my shit and yea…There is some cool people in the industry forsure, alot of them are my friends… i like all the cool people in snowboarding… you know who you are.

You are down with some A list skate and snow celebrities. I feel like everytime I see you, you are with someone else. On that note how’d you become a cheese dick kult member?

I don’t really know what you’re talking about but uhhh jeds the shit and im hyped on the cheese dick kult so i got it tattooed on me and yea… i guess im down for life? fuck yea i am…. http://cheesedickclick.blogspot.com

What’s your favorite new trick you’ve learned on the only thing you skate on at Denver?

ive actually been skating alot of stuff at the park, as well as other parks…. but my favorite trick on the best quarter pipe ever built is probably going to have to be 5-0 270 back in fakie….its probably my favorite trick in all of skateboarding actually….

You’ve been known to talk some mad shit on me behind my back and I probably deserve it. What’s the worst thing I’ve ever done to you?

shut up fool, i like to talk shit, but everything ive supposedly said behind your back id say it to your face!!! Probably punching me in the face, oh and fucking with me at the bar when im all wasted… yea that shit sucks too!!!

Any call outs, shout outs, or thank yous?

thanks pat, for nothing……jus kidddin….. Cody hodge, Mike parris, Aaron wilson, my parents, My awesome dog Buffett who just got put down today….shits a bummer man (RIP)  Billy Mackey,Zink, Brendor, Tino, all the dudes at the barn…. Kendra for doing a shit ton for me for the last 3 years even though she hates me…..and everyone else… Love you all… Peace

A Shitty Interview With Whitney Wells…..

Posted in skateboarding, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2010 by patdarep

I decided I am going to do some interviews of my friends that have potential. I couldn’t think of a better person to start with than Whitney Wells until I read his answers. He is a local Denver skateboarder who is on the verge of “Making It”. He lost his virginity 2 years ago and hasn’t had sex in a year. He just got on Vans and is going to go on tour with them pretty soon or at least he “thinks so.” Below is his interview. I guess it can only go up from here. Check out the shops blog that Whitney works at….its www.thedenvershop.com. There is always some entertaining stuff on it.

I don’t know if Whitney was born with a hatchet but it appears that he’s down with the clown regardless

What’s your full name and why did your Mom name you after Whitney Houston? Is it because you were a crack baby?

Thomas Whitney Wells…and no I ain’t no crack baby. I am named after a dude, ya asshole.

Remember that one time last weekend when you came over and we were playing that stupid game and you wrote niggaflip.com on the piece of paper and no one wanted to say nigga, because all my friends grew up in a mountain town and only one black kid went to our school? Were you offended when my annoying really drunk friend yelled “Niggerflip.com” really loud? Were you only half mad because you are only half black?

I just know how to contain my anger, on my way home I broke a bunch of car windows and punted a few babies cause I was pissed at the white man.

Will you have a part in the new Denver Shop video or are you gonna blow it? Just kidding, I actually heard from Murph that you have a ton of shit locked up.

Most likely blow it. I’ve gotten one clip all this year. So looks like I’ll be in the bonus or some shit. Fuck it. Murph was lyin’. (Ed. note: He probably is sitting on shit.)

I stole this from thedenvershop.com deal with it

When do you have time to film what with your busy schedule of two jobs, macking on girls, and facebook?

Facebook is just a lifestyle bro. And I don’t mack on girls, they mack on me! SIKE! I just try to fit skating in whenever I can. (Ed. note: What a fucking horrible answer)

Who are you skating for these days? What’s your favorite sponsor?

The Denver Shop, Vans, Elm, RVCA, and I get random shit from Deluxe. The shop and Vans are my favorite, cause I love shoes and Tony’s tight! (Ed. note: Notice he didn’t say Elm is his favorite even though I just got him on the team last week.)

What’s the best thing that has ever come out off Tony’s mouth?

“Those titties say LA, but that ass says Texas!” I love that quote, might get it tatted.

Did you grow up in the hood your whole life? How do you feel about people like me (white, young, middle class) that are moving into your hood and pushing the culture out?

Yeah hood life my whole life! I like the white folk, cause they just make the value of my house go up that much more. (Ed. note: When Whitney says “his” house, he means his mom’s. He still lives at home.)

here’s another photo shamelessly stolen from facebook

Do you remember when you were playing skate and focused your board and half the board flew up and hit me in the shin and i couldn’t walk right for a week?

Nope. Must have slipped my mind. You probably deserved it. (Whitney doesn’t remember because he didn’t even notice.)

Why do you drink 32 oz bottles of High Life as opposed to 40 oz bottles of King Cobra? Is it because you are mostly white?

No and no. High life tastes better then that shit and CO doesn’t carry high life 40’s. (terrible terry note: fuck you pat you can’t lose with thirty-twos bitch that’s what’s up)

Who’s your favorite Colorado Skateboarder?….dont say Justin Shardy….Im sick of hearing about how good he is. I know that.

Umm…Justin Christopher Shardy and David Reyes. Duh.

Anything else you want to add? Shout outs? Call outs? Something to say to the ladies?

Thanks to all the family I have, and thanks to everyone that’s helped me up until this point. GTOTR! And doubt anyone is going to read this bullshit. Peace out faggeeet. (ed. note: GTOTR stands for good times on the regs. I don’t think I have ever seen Whitney have a good time. He is always the most pissed off person around. (terrible terry note: pat obviously doesn’t spend that much time with hondo.))

Denver Pride…….Even though the Nuggs are blowing it.

Seems like I have been spending most my time getting tattooed lately…I can’t really skate because of my knee….by this time every season I am by far over snow….so what else am I going to do? Oh yea BIG ups to Terence! That Edit was wicked!

Diggs and Mike

So I was showing COMUNE stuff to one of my favorite shops yesterday, 303 boards. They are always trying to one up the ever growing Denver skate scene and have a wicked awesome team to back up their wicked awesome shop. Here is a “little” web edit with two of my favorite Denver Skateboarders and two genuinely great people. Check out 303’s website for more at http://www.303boards.com

Friday Movie Review: An Education

Posted in Uncategorized on April 9, 2010 by patdarep

So this movie pretty much sucked. There is a couple good things about it. Its based in the 50’s in Great Britain so there are some cool cars and  funny accents. Carie Muligan is wicked hot also, but you feel weird thinking she is, because she plays a 16 year old girl who’s in to older creepy guys. Luckily I googled her and she was born in the mid 80’s so its cool.

So pretty much what happens is, this smart girl (Carie) is trying to decide what she wants to do. This old guy charms her and takes her on trips and shit. Then she fucks him. Then she gets engaged to him. Then she finds out he’s married and has a kid. Then she goes back to school. Then the movie ends.

I wouldn’t see it again.

There Terence….I’ll post again in a couple months.

The Letter Of Last Resort…..shits fucked

Posted in Uncategorized on March 15, 2010 by patdarep

First off it’s been a while. I apologize. Life/work is crazy and doesn’t allow me a lot of time to post on here like my fellow TDK counterparts.

Anyway, this article made me have some major chills. To summarize in a couple sentences, the British Prime Minister has to write a letter and give it to a commanding office of a random nuclear sub that spends most, if not all of its time just waiting in the Atlantic. This letter explains what the Prime Minister’s orders are if Great Britain were to get severely Nuked. There is just a yes or no on the letter….if the answer is yes, the sub must retaliate at full power on whoever is staking claim to the nuking….if it says “no” they just putter on their way throughout the Atlantic.

How scary is it that the fate of millions of people is purely decided by one person and their hand written note that is locked in a safe which is in another safe. Its pretty fucked that at this point in time in civilization, something that large can sully be put upon one person who just so happened to be put in a position of power. How would you like to make that decision? Just a little food for thought.
