Vern Laird, the Team Manager for Bones Bearings drops a part for his 40th birthday and isn't afraid to talk shit.
"I'd rather just quit and not ride for anything and figure it out."
"I don't wanna milk the shit out of it. If I don't think I can produce anything cool, then, eh, it's time to get a real job."
"We purposely separated ourselves from society and basically lived as a mini cult"

"If you want it, you have to grab it. You can't just sit there and wait around for your dreams to appear. Start working and bust your ass off."

"People are so anxious to promote their brands or to make a name for themselves, that they’re rushing and just barfing out anything."
