Whether it is your swollen liver from a top night out, your tweaked ankle or even the fact that your girlfriend has just decided to shag your best mate, we all go through pain to get what we want in life. The flipside to this malarkey is sharing the good times with your best mates and documenting it. Sam Taylor‘s EARTH PAIN 666 has been unleashed today, enjoy it as you only live once.
How much pain does this Earth bring to you on a weekly basis?
None at all, I have a pretty easy life. Maybe shiners, delams and spilt beer counts but apart from that I don’t have many worries.
How much pain did you go through in the making of these hilarious scene clips?
The most pain was when George was filming and he dropped my camera and broke the lens, that fucking sucked. The funniest was seeing Chad Muska DJ – That was fucked up.
How much pain comes from the Based Gods?
Based God fucked my bitch.
What’s the worst pain you have seen anyone go through whilst out skateboarding?
When I was a kid I saw a guy bail at the Boardroom and break his arm in 2 places, that was fucking gnarly. Someone broke their lower back trying to clear the wall at Stockwell the other day, I wasn’t there but I heard he landed in the middle of the road. Dwayne trying to switch ollie the seven at southbank is always a gnarly site.
Which part of Earth goes through more pain than anywhere else?
I leave that to Ali Drummond. He’s in Burma being Rambo. Earth Pain is more about the little slams we take whilst out skating, Dwayne hitting the floor or Josh Cox doing some stinking late flip.
What pain comes next?
Earth Pain 7 – If George buys me a new camera. More t-shirts, zines and prints are ready to drop, check the website.
BEER FOR LIFE
