Who has the craziest part in Ride The Sky?
I'm going to say Slash. He's fucking gnarly.
What's new with Toy Machine?
We’re trying to find some new ams, and we’re going start a new Toy Machine video after the Fallen video is over.
What board do you ride?
Any eight-inch Toy Machine.
How did you get eliminated in the Es game of skate, come back the next day, and end up finishing 4th?
I don't know. Probably because I was wasted.
How much money have you won this month in contests?
Not a lot. I suck at contests.
How much have you lost?
Lost? You can lose money at contests? I've seen it happen.
When was the last time you were in a tanning bed?
Yesterday. It was for my Thrasher interview.
What's the last thing you put on eBay?
Nothing feeble about owning a tanning bed. Photo:Chami (excerpted from October 2008 issue)
Remember when I caught you selling all of your Fallens on eBay and you claimed you didn't know who it was?
I didn't sell no fucking shoes on eBay. You might want talk to Brian Young about doing that shit. Wait… When was the last time you put shoes on eBay?
Talk to Murphy. Tell the kids out there something they don't know about being a professional skateboarder.
It's hard God damn work.
Tell the kids something about each of the Toy Machine riders that they might not know
: Ed Templeton.
Sketchier than me.
Will kill anyone.
Has a warrant for his arrest.
Probably the nicest dude you'd ever meet until he pushes you over a table because he thinks you’re trying to cut in front of him in line.
Doesn't talk much, jumps off tall-ass bridges.
Just turned pro and has the best part in the Transworld video.
I think he's losing his mind, but he's still tight.
This gap to nosegrind is almost as big as the gap between what Billy earns and what he spends. Photo: Shigeo (excerpted from October 2008 issue)

4/12/2016He’s never been afraid of the hefty terrain, flipping into lengthy rails and over towering gaps, and this video part is his masterpiece. Billy got balls.
