Our longtime friend Ed Templeton has yet another photo book in his published quiver: Hairdos of Defiance, a showing of which was recently built around its release at the Roberts Projects gallery in Los Angeles (currently on display through April 21st). Rick Kosick was on the opening scene to document... Continue reading

If you managed to catch the romcomdocudrama Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine on Hulu then there is absolutely no doubt in the world you were fascinated with one of the staff's most enigmatic characters: Earl Parker. Rick Kosick caught up with him recently at his place in Hollywood... Continue reading

There's a long story and a short story, but let's just simply say that through an old friend of ours (hello, Joselle!) we know Rich "Crazy Legs" Colon, an original member—and current President—of the Rock Steady Crew. We're talking some serious breakdancing roots from the heart of the Bronx in... Continue reading

Unlike pigs, time does fly; or, unlike Travis Pastrana, Johnny Knoxville does not backflip. Yes, unbelievable though it may seem, 10 years ago, maybe not to the day but close enough for idiomatic horseshoes and hand grenades purposes, our fearless leader rose to the Evel Knievel occasion and, well, fell...

Do you to the YouTubes? If so, be sure to check out Jukka's new show Ultimate Expedition, debuting today on the YouTube Red label (not to be confused with John Lucero's Black Label). But that's just part of what you can read below, where Rick Kosick went into the depths... Continue reading

I’ve been going to the Comedy Store for a couple of years now and it’s seriously my favorite place to go and hangout. You can catch me there just about every Monday and Tuesday night, and it all started because I would go and watch the Roast Battle. There’s something... Continue reading

This year, like every other for the past three to be precise, Tremaine locks down a location and rounds us all up from our various corners of the universe for a family-style night of drinks, food, and fun—the pinnacle of fun being a certain "White Elephant" gift exchange game that...

They always say you can never be too clever, but you can—and annoyingly so. I should know, I do it all the time, but I just can't seem to help myself from routinely tripping over my dick. "So it goes," Kurt Vonnegut would say if he could say, but the... Continue reading

Greetings! Seasonally speaking, that is, because we're here to help fan the flames that fuel the economy with a few gifty (and perhaps even thrifty!) ideas for your friends, family, loved ones, and any other sentient lifeforms you deem worthy of presenting a present. For the most part these items... Continue reading

Okay, first off, I know that's a classic click-bait grab, but so it goes. This is the internet and it's a dog-eat-fucking-dog world to claim eyeballs, attention, and maybe even a goddamn viral sensation for all of 15 forgettable minutes! Again, so it goes. But the thing is, a Florida... Continue reading

Kosick: Who are you? Jericho: My name is Jericho Vilar. I’m just an average artist that has never done anything outside of Instagram, to be perfectly honest. Where are you from? I was originally born in the Philippines, but I grew up in Glendale, California. I relocated to Santa Ana... Continue reading

Today on the blog, Rick Kosick talks to one of our personal favorites: Roger Alan Wade, a man who needs no real introduction if you're a lifer in the lore of jackass. If you don't know Rog, well hell, then you're in for a real treat of a kick in... Continue reading

You remember Knate, right? The skinny little blond-haired kid who kept getting in Rick Kosick's shots while Johnny Knoxville hobbled around in his "Squid Suit" for the first season of jackass on MTV in 2000? Well, that kid Kosick grumpily decried as an "amateur" went on to make it big... Continue reading

When you are born into this world you are a blank slate, give or take some bullshit with genetics, and although I can't claim to know what happened to Happy Tom in the nurture state of his youth it must've been something pretty awesome. Not only is he one of... Continue reading

This past summer, Bam Margera came down to Tremaine’s lake house and spent a few days lake lifing. During that time, Kosick asked him if he’d be up for an interview and here’s the final answer: an interview! Consider this an hors d’oeuvre to the forthcoming Epicly Later’d featuring a...

JxPx Blackmon wasn't there from the very beginning of jackass in 2000 on MTV, but it was close. Damn close. But what's funny is that he didn't come into it as the shady prop guy we would all soon know him to be—at first he was just a shady PA.... Continue reading

The other day, and quite sadly so, we learned that Craig Conolly, aka Craig Mack, a friend and former crew member of ours, had passed away. We first met Craig during production on jackass the movie in 2002, when it came down to shooting the "professional" looking part of the... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So how did you get this gig to direct Dumb: The Story of Big Brother Magazine? Patrick O’Dell: Hulu called Jeff [Tremaine], and I don’t know if Jeff thought of it, you know, “let’s make a documentary about my magazine,” but I think Hulu thought, “let’s make one... Continue reading

In Los Angeles. Last Friday. And Saturday, actually, but that was more of a public affair, whereas the previous night was the VIP extravaganza (with an extra helping of the vaganza). Anyway, as always, here is a smorgasbord of people photos to pick through and feast upon, kind of like... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So I’m here with Wee-Man at his new Chronic Tacos location. Where are we? Wee-Man: This location is off Bellflower and Stearns, in the city of Long Beach. Right down the street is Cal State Long Beach. How long has this location been open? This location was open... Continue reading

I don't think any of us ever imagined a documentary about Big Brother skateboard magazine would find its wayward way into a film festival, but by god it did! The Tribeca film festival no less. So it was with great grandeur and a little red carpet that several of us... Continue reading

I first met Brandon Novak in the earlier half of the '90s when he was a promising young skateboarder from Baltimore, Maryland. The next time I met him was just over a decade later while we were shooting footage for jackass number two and he was a shambling wreck of... Continue reading

Rick Kosick: So what’s going on with this tour, are you guys supporting a new album? CIG: Shit, we’re back! And we’re just thrilled. All day long it’s just CKY again. Jess Margera: Yeah, we did an album at Rancho De La Luna out in Joshua Tree back in July... Continue reading

The other day, and quite out of the blue, someone asked me if I had appeared in the music video for "Snapped" by the Phunk Junkeez. I was shocked, because A) I'm not a face often (or ever) recognized; and B) I'd completely forgotten about the video as I thought... Continue reading

That's right. And you saw it here first! Unless you happened to be one of the 40-odd people who crammed ass into Bret Banta's house for his inaugural comedy show in Los Angeles, California, which would make this the second time you saw anything about it. All wordy technicalities aside,... Continue reading
