Antarctica is otherworldly, like nothing I've ever seen before. Stark, cold, beautiful desolation.
Make yourself look really stupid so you don't feel bad doing something a little stupid.
Once you declare your loyalty to a team, every person who doesn't support that team, it's their job to ruin you, to tell you you're an idiot and to tell you that you made the wrong choice.
Everything in high school seems like the most important thing that's ever happened in your life. It's not. You'll get out of high school and you never see those people again. All the people who torment and press you won't make a difference in your life in the long haul.
I never thought of punk rock as the absolute act of rebellion for the sake of rebellion. There's a lot of that in there, but for me I think punk rock was always about questioning things and making decisions for yourself, which is a great message to pass on to your kids.
I just want everyone out there to know that I'm super-awesome and a great guy and really cool to talk to and that I appreciate all the support.
We're really good friends and we hang out. It's like I get to hang out with my friends and get paid for it.
I don't stream or buy CDs... pretty much everything I buy, I do it on iTunes.
From a very early age, my wife and I told our son that there are times and places for everything. I told him, look, when you're in class, you have to be quiet and listen to your teacher, but when you go out to the playground, you can scream and be silly.
Screw them. Yeah. But not literally. I'm not advocating promiscuity.
All the really pretty girls get pregnant.
We just kind of did our own thing and got made fun of by the popular kids. It was kind of like a badge of honor to be an outcast.
I've learned some of the greatest life lessons from growing up in the skate and punk rock communities.
My parents were pretty lenient with me. But, they gave me morality while I was growing up. They taught me the difference between right and wrong.
All I can hope to do is instill great morality in my son and trust him along the way. The music he listens to or how he chooses to wear his hair doesn't define his moral compass, and if he wants to listen to country music and wear a cowboy hat too, that's fine.
