KRONICK:
Tell me about some of the pills you have with you.
CAINE:
Hahahahaha. What? Ekination or something? Just go to the GNC store.
KRONICK:
Dude, don't punk out on me now that the tape recorder is on.
CAINE:
Vicatin, take one of those and a beer and you're done. Just chillin'. Darvisette, same thing just more mild. They're just muscle relaxers.
KRONICK:
Crazy pharmecudicals.
CAINE:
When you're sore from skating all day just pop one of thoose and you're ready to go. You can't take 'em alot, you get addicted to them. Danny was addicted to them, he was poppin' em like whatevers. When he broke his neck he had to take them everyday. A broke neck? I'd be takin' them too.
KRONICK:
How did he brake his neck?
CAINE:
Surfing. He ran out into the water wrong or something. I don't know dude, he head bunted the dirt and he was done.
KRONICK:
How is Colin Mckay as a roomate?
CAINE:
We're pretty good roomates, we don't argue. No fights, no nothing.
KRONICK:
How long has this been going on for?
CAINE:
Like a year. The lease is almost up.
KRONICK:
Are you gonna renew it?
CAINE:
I don't know. It's like, me and my girlfriend live there and he's solo... I don't know. He's definately on the bachelor tip.
KRONICK:
Let me ask you, what are you doing to prepare for Y2K?
CAINE:
Nothing man, it's a hoax. What? You don't think people prepare for shit like this?
KRONICK:
I don't know, that's what I'm asking you for.
CAINE:
Like what? Y2K comes and BOOM! the world is gone? Like lights out, fuckin' everyone falls over?
KRONICK:
Well, all the rappers are talking about it.
CAINE:
(a long pause) So, who cares? I don't think it's anything. What could it possibly be? What? Are computers gonna go down? You know Bill Gates has some sort of computer chip just waiting to be dropped the day before Christmas. Like, "Hey guys, I got the cure. Just pay me another six-hundred-zillion dollars!"
KRONICK:
Are you down with the internet?
CAINE:
Not really. Every once in a while I get on Colin's. Hey, doesn't Girl have a chatline? A place where the kids go and they're like, "Oh, Rick Howard! Oh, Mike Carrol!" or whatever. I think Colin logged on there once and he said that he was talking to the kids. And I guess they have some kind of code they can type, so that when Colin types in things it comes out in a different color or something so they know that they're talking to the actuall Colin McKay. Instead of just some guy saying he's Colin McKay. So he's talkin' to these kids like, "Hey guys, it's me Colin. What's up?" The kids were like, "That's not you! Yeah right, whatevers."
KRONICK:
Hahahahaha
CAINE:
Colin was like, "What are you talkin' about? It's me, ask me a question."
KRONICK:
Hahahaha
CAINE:
"Shut up! You're lying! You suck, blah, blah, blah... Muska rules!" or something. Then Colin freaked out and called Rick and was like, "Dude, what's my code?!" He typed it in and was like "There! It's me Colin! What mutherfuckers?!" All the kids were like, "Oh god! Hey, what's up Colin, you rip!"
KRONICK:
Do you miss the days when wheels were all small and shit?
CAINE:
What? Like 40 millimeter wheels? 32's? I think Union mad 32 millimeter wheels. Just little ass dinky things. It looked like just bearings. That was like a World (Industries) thing. It's like you had to have the smallest wheels. If you didn't have small wheels, you were dumb.
KRONICK:
Did you ever turn your front truck bolts upsidedown?
CAINE:
Heck yeah! I'd have 2 of my truck bolts turned around so when you ollied your foot would catch it, cause the noses where 2 inches long. I remember that.
KRONICK:
It'd tear up your shoes though.
CAINE:
But it made such a difference. You'd have to Shoe-Goo the whole side of your shoe with duct tape and shit.
KRONICK:
So how long does a pair of shoes last you now?
CAINE:
If I'm skating everday, maybe 2 or 3 days. They just wear out. When you're skating all the time doing kickflips and ollies they just get mushy.
KRONICK:
Dude, what if you were'nt pro? That would suck.
CAINE:
Man, I'd be conserving shoes like crazy. I'd just have one pair of shoes and try and keep them forever. You take shit for granted after a while. It's like you don't really think about how much you get till like one of your friends that isn't sponsored. You see what they have and it makes you think, "Damn, I get alot of shit". Like just clothes and shit. When you're little, you would go school shopping for clothes. Your mom would take you out and you'd get like 5 shirts, a couple pair of pants, and a pair of shorts and you were set for the whole school year.
KRONICK:
Now that's not even a couple days on tour.
CAINE:
Yeah, we're on tour like for 14 days. Boom, that's 25 shirts that get sweated in and thrown away. You know they get dirty and stained, so it's easier to just get new ones. If you wash them, they have stains in them anyway.
