I liked his tour stories the most, as well as dumb shit like the Depends Olympics. I learned a bit about skateboard culture.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I liked his tour stories the most, as well as dumb shit like the Depends Olympics. The most memorable thing, actually, was his use of ‘dropping a feather’ - namely, when someone says something which requires a question to clarify. It’s a self-indulgent conversation tactic.

Skateboarding was a Macguffin for Big Brother; it progressed the story, but it wasn’t necessarily the story like it was for Thrasher or Transworld

Skateboarding was a Macguffin for Big Brother; it progressed the story, but it wasn’t necessarily the story like it was for Thrasher or Transworld. Reading the blurbs, you get a feeling that if it were a magazine about fly fishing or wedding planning, the minds behind it would have come back with the same product.

I was into Big Brother magazine when it was around, and followed the guys on to Jackass. It brought back a lot of fond memories - I wish I could jump back to the 90s and relive those days

Next . Американский хардкор (2006). I was into Big Brother magazine when it was around, and followed the guys on to Jackass. It brought back a lot of fond memories - I wish I could jump back to the 90s and relive those days. Obviously I already knew much of the story but much of it was new to me. It was pretty interesting to see how all these random characters came together to create something extremely unique and very entertaining. Worth checking out especially if you're a fan of Jackass or skateboarding.

Big Brother was the most infamous magazine in skateboard history and one of its loudest voices was Dave Carnie. Boob (published by KING PUBLISHING with support from VANS) is a collection of Dave Carnie s best work in his 14 years with Big Brother a magazine that not only transformed skateboarding and brought us Jackass, but influenced everything in the publishing world from Vice to Martha Stewart s Living. Boob will go down in literary history as the greatest skateboard book, not about skateboarding, ever written. In this massive 720 page tome you ll be treated to the entire catalog of Dave Carnie s most delightful stories about penis pumps, enemas, Depends Olympics, Bong Olympics, Slayer at Disneyland, the infamous Andy Roy interview, porn stars who shoot fire out of their butts, his amazing cat Gary, the Poocano, Aggressive Street Dancing, Aggressive Sheep Herding, and all kinds of other nonsense. The book is also filled with exclusive, in depth interviews with people throughout the world of skateboarding such as Louie the Chimp (skateboarding monkey), Jarret Barry (professional homosexual skateboarder), Arlo Eisenberg (professional rollerblader), Larry Flynt (professional pornographer), and many more famous skateboard personalities. Be a part of skateboard history and order copies now. Your toilet needs this book. Penis. Vagina.
  • Let's face it. Skaters are not often readers. Reading is what you do in/for school. It's what THEY make you do when you'd otherwise be skateboarding, smoking pot, trying to coax the opposite sex into recreational intercourse, etc. Street-wise they may be, but the skater's is not a 'literary' sensibility. There's a tradition of scribbling skaters looking to differentiate skateboarding from 'mere sports', or even 'lifestyles', and taking recourse to terms like 'poetry' or 'art' - but this is just a conflated way of saying it is 'beautiful'. There are exceptions - Eric Koston has been known to lay down tricks which might be termed 'ironic' - but mostly skateboarding and poetry represent differing spheres of cultural practice. They are seperate cultures, each inscribed with their own sensibilities and connectivities with the culture at large, and never the twain shall meet. Or so you'd be forgiven for thinking, because that's precisely the conundrum Dave Carnie has, over the span of his career, seen to destabilize. In a sub-culture ruefully conducive to the American inarticulate-is-good meme, the Carnivore's import lay in demonstrating to a generation of average skateboarding underachievers that words needn't suck, but could actually be cool. Carnie's text-heavy tour reports, rife with inane asides and devices more commonly associated with 'serious' fiction, were a defiant F-U in the face of publications like Transworld, which were responsible for the ESPNification of skateboarding in the mid-90s. Just how many people actually read his pieces remains moot, but in an industry fiending for the lowest common denominator teen denmographic, to have a publication like Big Brother with the silly but thoughtful musings of a Carnie or Pontius was like a breath of fresh air after an all-night depends party. At any rate, Dave Carnie inspired yours truly to resist the moronic inferno of every day life, to seek refuge in books, not television. It was Carnie who lured me out of the safe, cartoon-world of skateboarding into the dark recesses of the historical mind plumbed by serious literature. If skateboarding gave me an excuse to go outside and explore the world, the inspired scribblings of Dave Carnie pointed the way to the inner life that might be had when you genuinely cease to care what your well-meaning but witless friends and family might think, and pursue what is meaningful and true for you. Penis. Vagina.

  • Even mentioning such ridiculous shows as Jackass and the Wyld Boyz when talking about Carnie's genius is insulting. His works go FAR beyond that. This book isn't for everyone (as you can see in the comment above mine.) Why somebody that doesn't skateboard would buy a collection of articles from a skateboard magazine is beyond me. At the time these were written, skateboarding was very much an outcasts way of life. Tony Hawk toys didn't come in Happy meals, skateboards weren't sold at Wal Mart, Bam Margera actually still skated. This is a book that tells that story... well kind of. Don't buy this book simply because you think kicking your friend in the nuts is cool (obviously referencing the last commenter again). Needless to say, this is one of the best books I've read. Despite having read alot of the articles before in Big Brother. I will read this again. And again. And again. Fully worth the money. Carnie's work is amazing. Buy this book. And don't return it simply because there's no footage of some midget lighting a fat guy on fire, or some dude eating a pube sandwich in it. It's not Jackass. It's a book, Jackass.

  • loved the magizine so much, It was great that Jackass made all the guys rich and famous but it took the magize I loved from obscurity to fame to bust. Great to read all the old articles in the book. Dave Carnie is great.

  • book is amazing, simply amazing work from dave. A must own for any readers of the magazine. classic carn carn

  • CARNIE IS HILARIOUS

  • I wrote a long review for this book but I deleted it and decided to go a different direction with this review. If you love Dave Carnie's writing like I do, buy this book. You won't be disappointed.

  • I am certifierad nöjd helt enkelt! Tror att jag går och lägger mig nu. snabbt skickat och allt bra. Idag regnade det en del här i göteborg men annars har det gått bra tycker jag

  • I read the entire book to my cat Gary. It took us 42 and a half hours. Gary perked up one time when heard his name, otherwise he slept most of the time
