Blake Carpenter is one of those skaters who can do the hardest tricks with ease and a smile on the face. When he visited Germany on Toy Machine tour a few weeks ago, we were able to see for ourselfs and also used the chance to ask him some silly questions.
Probably Mazzy Star – Halah.
Confidence and not greasy hair, cause it stinks like shit.
Steal mad food and beers. And just hang out. Maybe listening to people’s conversations.
This kid just now, I gave him my old skateboard and he said this is the best day in my life. I appreciate that a lot. That made me feel good.
I sleep naked. Nothing is better than slushing around in nice fresh sheets.
I got nothing to change. No regrets. Just keep it steady. Stay healthy and not be a dickhead.
Prince. I love Prince. I’d party with him, might fuck him, who knows? He is the dopest.
Just not having to deal with anything at all. Not that you can get away with anything, but like there are just not as many consequences as being an adult. And I’ll be down to go play instead of hitting my shins with my skate. Just play and be able to have fun without trying. That’ll be cool.
I will go with go Son-Goku from Dragonball Z. When I grew up I would watched it a shit-ton. Everyday after school: Dragonball Z.
It probably has to be some type of band that doesn’t exist anymore. I’d see Bowie play. I’ll go to a Bowie Concert.
I used to wanna be a two letter. Like TJ or some bullshit like that.
I’d say Pam Anderson. Keep it simple. I mean Pam Anderson before she got blown out, when she got recruited to be on Baywatch.
I can make pickles.
He is a pro skateboarder blablabla. That’s it. Ah wait here is a good one. They took me to a wedding when I was like two or three and all I wanted was fireworks, screaming and crying. Being the littlest bitch till I got fireworks. Happy End.
Frontside Crooks. Just like twenty fucking feet.
Without knowing. Just by chance, nothing planned. Nothing that I know is coming, that is best.
"I hate getting out of the shower and having wet ass ears"
My dad. He told me to keep on keeping on. Whatever you want to do, just do it.
Science. Not that we did anything crazy, but I liked it. It was fun to do experiments and to dissect frogs. Better than books. Sitting there reading after the book, that makes no sense. We would study a book and then did the test, the information is right there. School should be about figuring it out for yourself and not residing.
I was alright. Chillin. Little quiet kid.
He would be fucking stoked. For real.
Hopefully not hugging on my skateboard. But still having fun on it and hopefully eating good food, hanging out, chillin with my chick. That’s it.
My family, girlfriend, dogs, landing tricks – yeah that’s it.
Nothing crazy. It has just all been flowing. Thankfully.
Forever. Fuck the internet.
Almost everyday. I have traveling Q-tips with me right now. I hate getting out of the shower and having wet ass ears. You gotta get in there and dry them out.
A stuffed animal. Also it is fun to hype over presents, like: Dude you gonna love it so much! And then it’s just a fucking stuffed animal.
All of them. I don’t have P-Rod’s but he would give it to me if I’d ask him. I got Stefan [Janoski], Eric [Koston], Collin [Provost] all the boys. Also Nyjah, I went on a trip with him.
Yesterday was good. Everyday. Fuck it, you are alive!
