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.
