“Big Brother,” the BOOB press release reads, “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.”
Now for some quotes from famous people:
"Dave tells it like it is, or however he sees it through his perverted prism. Never compromising, sometimes offensive, always funny."
"On his best day Dave Carnie isn't too pleasant. He is often drunk, fairly abusive, and a goddamn awful fighter. He can write like a son of a bitch and is one too. I'm a big fan."
"I met Carnie at Big Brother when the offices were at World in El Segundo and he was the biggest dick. It wasn't till four years later when he was drunk at Jeff's apartment that he was suddenly nice to me. I'm not sure how I won him over, but it took years of trying."
"Idiots often flaunt their idiocy unintentionally, geniuses often flaunt their genius over-intentionally, but it is the truly gifted ones who can deliver their genius through idiocy."
—Mark Whitely, Slap Magazine
"When I think of Carnie, one word comes to mind: shitbag. Actually, that's two words, but it looks way better written as one."
