Skateboarding is not a hobby. And it is not a sport. Skateboarding is a way of learning how to redefine the world around you. For most people, when they saw a swimming pool, they thought, ‘Let’s take a swim.’ But I thought, ‘Let’s ride it.’ When they saw the curb or a street, they would think about driving on it. I would think about the texture. I slowly developed the ability to look at the world through totally different means.” – Ian MacKaye

For those who don’t know, Ian Mackaye was frontman of hardcore punk bands Minor Threat and Teen Idles, as well as the bands Embrace, Fugazi and The Evens. He is a co-founder of Dischord Records, and is also credited for coining the term “straight edge”.
