Read about their favorite tour moments, worst situations while filming and being on the road in general…
Worst situation while filming for “Pariah”?
Brian Freeman: Aside from all the injuries and the rain it would have to be grabbing that dead dog out of the street for that lady without even thinking about it. I think it could have brought bad vibes around. Don’t touch dead dogs lil niggas. John Bolino: Running out of money for beer or weed. Michael Garlinghouse: Getting kicked out after almost landing my ender on different visits to Oakland. Paul John: Princeton in the fall. Nick Labarre: Driving from California to NYC over 10 days with no radio, no music, no nothing.
Favorite memory from tour?
Alex Broskow: It was awesome being on the east coast trip and having Montre, John, Enanoh, and Stokley in Kansas City. Then watching the final project at the premiere. Montre Livingston: I was drunk the whole time, I’m not too sure. I would just say that it was awesome the whole time. Dylan Davis: NYC Blade invitational, pushing a punk kid through a window in a fight at a party in Kansas City, or the LSD in SF… Plenty of good times. Chris Farmer: Favorite memory is a toss-up between the strip clubs in Portland, Big Jay’s house, or AJ devising a plan to meet a long lost love of mine. Erik Stokley: Probably hanging out wth enanoh haha, funniest fucking dude. that or the van breaking down and having to stay with some german chick we met a bar in illinois, that shit was weird. Ross Kuhn : My favorite memory from the tour was hanging out with Sean Kelso and his lady (Sasha) in Kansas City, MO. Marc Moreno: I can’t clearly remember but the RADhouse was de puta madre.
What was filming for “Pariah” about?
Chris Farmer: Simply hanging out with some of my best friends on the planet and creating memories I will never forget. I felt very privileged to be involved. Erik Stokley: Just traveling around the country getting drunk with all my buddies, getting into some hilarious shit, and skating awesome spots that no one has skated before. Ross Kuhn: Just like filming for any other video, “Pariah” was about getting out of the house, skating some new stuff, and meeting some good people. Although, a little more sketchy because AJ was driving. Marc Moreno: Shit was wild and intense. Check the interview with Adam Johnson to find out more about “Pariah”.
