Brian Childers.



What is Childering? Why do you think watches are "capitalistic devices to keep us under control?"

Well, Childering is a term you invented for my problems with procrastination. I come from the great land of procrastinators - it's just "too hot out there" so we chill as long as possible. Watches - they're bad news. It's just a way to keep you under control. You'll always be saying, "I'm so busy, I'm too busy." Fuck that. If you're gonna wear that watch set it to the wrong time. In France, the Situationalists take a map of one city, then go to a completely different city and try to follow the same map. You have to disrupt the flow.

Brain is from Jacksonville, Florida. He rode for Santa Cruz and Ezekiel Clothing. Based on the interview I took the quote from, he possibly might have been smoking a little too much weed at the time. Not that there is anything fundamentally wrong with that, but it doesn't hurt to cut down on the stuff either. I've never smoked pot, but I'm now seeing how burned out some of my friends from college are after all these years. That's my advice to the kids: chill on the marijuana usage.

what dude? You don't think the Shake Junt crew will be sharp as nails in 10 years?

Justin said...

Nah, they'll be living comfortably off of fried chicken shaped wax and graphic griptape royalties.

Childers said...

Damn... Justin you nailed it. Aren't you clever. I am comfortable, quite comfy at that, thank-you. I'm wondering, how are you doing?

Justin said...

I'm fine. Thanks for asking. Sorry.

Justin said...

Did you know a Billy and Emily from Jacksonville? I met them in Arkansas a long time ago now and they knew you.

Nike Tyson said...

Billy and Emily? uhhhh maybe. Naw I'd like to find out how I know them though. I'm always blown away by the "bro, we used to skate together all the time" and "remember that time so n so did this n that and dude we were legends..." I'm just trying to dodge cigarette burns and keg spray and wondering why the fak did I come here! Maybe your right, the brownies were a lil too strong. ??? I guess if I have to ask....
Nah, it's all good, I'll admit the fried chicken shaped wax bit was awesome. I checked out some more of your stuff and found some good bits...

Brian is dead. Not surprised. He certainly was not nice, honest , or real, but stingy and so over materialistic. I was his friend from college, and nope never kissed him, he tried, though.
I took care of him, when his fake ass friends did not, when so drunk and high, he could have died from.poisoning. He and his roommate STOLE my dads yeatry Disney passes in college, worth thousands, AFTER I giftedd them with a free visit. That ruined my lice, with my dad for over ten year!! Years later, I called Children, as was in danger, and no dad to call, and that ohucker lied and called the cops, that I was suicidal, causing my apt to again bevribbed and my door knocked down, and my pets lost, and almost my life andvrep destroyed. He was no gentle soul, and he did soo.much pot, he was phucked up, and hung out w dealers with guns, and thought he was so cool. He was not cool. So what if so called good looking, rich, could skate, and oh, collect ugly ass, overecoebsive sneakers made by slave labour, like a follower wannabes..SNEAKERS?? THAT mofo chose pot and sneakers even over his first dog, abandoning her to be euthed. I heard his sneaker collection, stolen, well that's karma coming full circle. He eas so rich, so over spoiled, mommas boy, he did not even have to steal the three yearly Disney passes, mor his spoiled, fat, short, loser roommate! That destroyed my life with my dad for years, and put me in danger, alone in this world. And all I dif to help him SOo many times, and the o e time, I call for a friend to talk to, he effing backstabs me like that, and lies and calks the cops long distance, lying I was suicidal!! So then the thugs at my apt who had just stolen half of what I owned, could steal more, endanger my life and pets more!! Brian was not nice, real, nor a gentle soul, but a spoiled, superficial, tnuef that still owes me and my dad THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS..and its Ag the law to lie someone is suicidal. All he had to do was hang up, or say he not care to talk...but no, he was a fame, misled me, then backstabbed me, as he heard the thugs, smoked pot, like him!!! Effing loser, rich spoiled fake ARSE SCRUB!!!/HE eas evil inside, stingy, deceitful, over materialistic, WANBABEE..free soul..whatever..an effing over materialistic follower fake wannabes thug gangsta..and hey, I'm not Ag medicinal.pot, but when you need so much daily as Brian, choose to be around dealers of other drugs, guns, crime and backsyab people that were good to yiu that never harmed noone, and you backstsb someone, just because real criminals, also happen to smoke pot ( oh and crack)..that's PHUCKED UP...the truth always comes to.light as does Karma...endangering a female...what ail evil pussy bitch..oh and he hangs out with RAPIST skateboarder, too...I cannot even say Rest in Peace to this mother Phucker...a gal he pursued in college, that she said, no just friends.... Innocent, nice gals AKWAYS see the REAL PERSIN and becwas EVIL INSIDE AND enabled by his mother!! No he was not cool..he was a superficial fake. So what if he could skateboard..so fuckin what!

You're a fucking piece of shit. You do realize he had a disease you aaahole. Funny how a blind person is able to spell just about everything right...
So fucking what, he didn't even smoke pot at alll for years after.
You don't him you piece of shit.
I knew him since the age of 9.
Yeah, he was vain,but not if you really got to know him. You know nothing of his background, his childhood etc...and you probably drink I'm assuming. But it was weed that fucked him up??
I'm not going to go into his personal life with such a cunt, but I never kissed him either.
It's obvious you have no idea that addiction is a disease. And no one is perfect.
What you are saying is fucked up. You don't know anything about addiction. And maybe he was worried you'd kill yourself, look at what you're saying...
A rapist? Yeah, sure. I'm again not saying he was perfect, but you have NO IDEA what he's gone through in his life BEFORE HE MET YOU. FUCK YOU I HOPE YOUR BIPOLAR fucked ass burns in hell too.

Nancy Duffy said...

And you have no idea how he grew up,i hope you get help for your hatred snd bipolarness. No one deserves this. Fuck you.

And it is clear you harbor some serious mental issues.
You cannot blame one person for your own fuck ups.
I know better than anyone how messed up he became. But I loved him as a friend all the same. I'm certain you drink, but that's ok, it was the lol weed that messed him up...
Do you have any idea how badly he wanted help when he started going down hill?
You are full of anger and bullshit. let it go. He had serious problems, but he was not a bad person. You must have not known him that well...
