How did you get hooked up on Foundation?
Tony Silva hooked that shit right the fuck up.

Tony did a Primo stall on flat and a pressure flip, too.

Any funny Phelper stories on the trip?
Everywhere we went he did some thing really funny, like when he took this hat from a cop at the park and the cop didn’t do a damn thing.

You got Bad Shit on your iPod?
No, but will you send me some?
