Giving away millions of dollars / meeting nine assholes who ripped me off for well over seven figures.
First film you ever saw that really moved you?
Last lie you told?
About the purchases I made – it was actually 12 people for eight figures, plus tax, in Delaware.
First movie you ever went on a date to?
Titanic – by myself – in Paris. My wallet got stolen, so I snuck in and watched it twice. I was 16, and it was in French.

When [CKY Crew member Brandon] Novak lied when he was telling the truth about lying again.

On the interweb – some big, fat little pussy named Brian from Duluth Minnesota. He said, ‘Bam sucks on the internet’.
First three words friends would use to describe you?
Peter Pan with credit card. Nothing can become everything – and repeat!

Myself, every fucking day. They're all in the back yard and on my credit card, but I don't know where they all come from.

Everyone, even the pieces of shit who suck, I've learned from you.

Vitacigs – they're ecigs with vitamins.
First thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?
Detox, water, cigarette, think, fuck Nikki, think about how I might go skating, then I will go edit.
Last thing you think of before you go to sleep?
‘Why the fuck can't I go to fucking sleep?’ Then I will get up to go edit more.
