Let's travel back in time to 1995. It was a simpler time then with most every waking hour of ours spent in loving devotion to the pages of Big Brother skateboard magazine—although some unbelievers would probably say our actions were more masturbatory than worldly. I really can't deny such allegations, as this photo came from one such gross self-indulgence during a stop in Tampa, Florida, on our three week tour of the East Coast—the smatterings of which can be seen on shit, the very first Big Brother skateboard video—and was the culmination of Jeff Tremaine's dream of staging a "Depends Party" with Dave Carnie, Chris Pontius, Billy Pepper, and Kendra "I peed three times!" Gaeta. I forget the name of the hotel we'd stayed at, but if you've ever wondered what may have previously happened in a room you're checking into, perhaps you should wonder no more. Because grown ups piss themselves. They shit themselves. And they do it in diapers, all the while laughing, giggling, and filming each other. Hell, I almost have an inkling for a tinkling right now just thinking about it ... but no. I shall hold it in hopes of a brighter and more absorbent day, a day in which people of all race, color, creed, and age, regardless of continence, can wear diapers proudly and laugh loudly instead of hiding their nappies in shame. I have a dream!
