Uploaded by vice on Nov 28, 2011


DUSTIN DOLLIN: I'm going too fast.
(SINGING) Little red corvette.

See if you can hear me.
PATRICK O'DELL: Yeah I can hear you.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Can you hear me?
Is that way better?
Can you hear me now?

Aren't you the fucking filmer?
I'm just a puppet.
Welcome to the very first episode of the Epicly Later'd
skateboard show.
Today as our first guest we have Dustin Dollin who's
visiting from Australia.
And I'm really excited because Dustin is just like an awesome
skater and he's an insane person.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: This way or that way?
PATRICK O'DELL: He's completely fearless and for
years has just been doing stuff that I think has pushed
progression in skateboarding ahead.
Always getting tricks done.
Always landing everything.
We're just hoping to follow him around, go gear shopping,
I don't know.
We'll see what we get into.
This is sort of a day in the life of Dustin Dollin.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: The fucking--
it's so hard to find a button-up with like one pocket
with a good print on it these days.
They're all like polyester fuckin' fag seventies shit.
And they have that dude downstairs, the crazy dude
that's been here forever.
Do you have these in a small?
MALE SPEAKER 2: In a small?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: No, it's just what's on the shelf, right?
I like this kind of shit.
Just like the old Gothic wallpaper kind of shirt.
MALE SPEAKER 2: Too Gothic?
MALE SPEAKER 2: Here you go!
DUSTIN DOLLIN: It's a bit hot though.
It's supposed to be hot.
Like in rock-n-roll it's hot.
If it's not hot, what's the point?
Like if your pants don't hurt, why wear them?
We carry this thing, that's Dustin Dollin.
I even know your last name now.
MALE SPEAKER 2: You're famous.
Upstairs you're famous.
He's famous.
He's really famous.
MALE SPEAKER 2: Humbly famous.
These are mob blocks.
Trying to get shit done with these is virtually impossible.
It's so funny letting a [INAUDIBLE].
Hated and proud and then like cover it up
with my chick socks.

SHANNON MARTINEZ: I got nothing to say right now.
I'm jealous.
I don't have any shoes.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I feel so much better actually
having some gear on.
It's been so long.
It's been skate dude on tour for fucking months and months.
Thank you.
CHAD MUSKA: I know one good story about Dustin.
When we first met, the first time I went to Australia, it
was me and Ronnie Creager.
We went on-- it was a Blind Shorties tour.
And we went to every fuckin' place in Australia, Justin was
probably like 11 or 12 years old or something.
And he showed up at every spot that went to, no matter if we
were on the other side-- we were in Tasmania, to Perth, to
Adelaide, and he showed up at every demo and he was the
hyperest little shit in the world.
And he was kickflip indy grabbing everything in sight
and he was just like, ah, hey mate, hey check this kickflip
indy, aye, aye, aye.
And he was kickflipping everything.
He was just this hyper little fucking rat.
And then I just remember like a couple of years after that
just seeing him and damn, he really fuckin'
CHAD MUSKA: Came through.
You know?
But I think like he's one of the sickest skaters ever right
now, for sure, man.
PATRICK O'DELL: To me, something that's interesting
about Dustin Dollin is that a lot of pro skaters when they
turn old enough to start drinking they start drinking,
they start doing drugs, they just vanish off the face of
the earth as far as skateboarding coverage goes.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I'm gonna get run over by cars.
PATRICK O'DELL: Dustin has never slowed down partying and
he's never slowed down skateboarding.
And I know that might be a bad message because trust me,
nobody else has been able to pull this off and I've seen
pros come and go for 10 years.
He's always the first one awake in the morning and the
last one asleep.
Fuckin' hell!
What the fuck's wrong with these people?
PATRICK O'DELL: He just seems to have this lust for life
that a lot of people don't have.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: When you like walk past the bar and they're
playing a song that you really like you just got to go in and
have a drink.
KEVIN "SPANKY" LONG: Dustin's like the king of pressuring
people who don't drink.
He seriously has a hard time breathing when he's around
people who we know that don't drink.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: One time me and Spanky were in Brooklyn and
we're just like walking down the street talking to each
like, man, I got to take it easy.
I got to slow down on having drinks like this week.
And then we walk past a bar and Morrissey was playing out
of it and we just had to go in and have a drink.

Times like that, you know?
KEVIN "SPANKY" LONG: I guess he probably taught me a new
way to drink or like--
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Afternoon mimosa, huh?
Why not.
FEMALE SPEAKER: I'm gonna find me some
nice big, giant mojito.
She's like mimosa and a mojito.
I need some washing man.

It said same day on the laundromat and then the next
day you have to pick it up.
I don't know, it's fucked.
You know what else I hate?
Is in the elevators, they have the button that closes the
door quicker but it never fucking closes it quicker.
Guys that wear their sunglasses on their head,
that's pretty heinous, especially at night.
That's bad.
People wear strange gear in New York.
I seen girls like wearing most old grandmother
fucking shit ever.
Like the prettiest girls just like ruining their shit by
wearing these big flowery grandmother dresses.
It's stupid.
Lot of girls cover up their tits here like they don't like
showing any of them.
I think it's because they're all models and they're all
skinny and they all got little tits.
I hate lots of things though.
I'm sure a lot of people just hate me.

Fuck 'em.
Two for one.
I guess I can get my--
Get another one for free.
PATRICK O'DELL: When did you first meet Dustin?
SHANNON MARTINEZ: Almost seven years ago at a bar in
Melbourne, in Australia.
We pretty much met because he ran after me and pulled down
my skirt in front of all the Baker crew and through a drink
on my face and I liked it so that's how we met.
PATRICK O'DELL: And you guys started dating right away?
I moved to Sydney after pretty much knowing him for a day.
So I moved into state to live with him for
awhile during the Olympics.
And then I made him come back down to Melbourne.
And he's been there ever since.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I'm always here just drinking.
I don't know where all you kids are every other fucking
time where I was hanging out at Tompkins having beers.
I didn't think anyone even liked me in New York.

Professional pile of shit.
PATRICK O'DELL: Did he make some kind of deal with you,
like if you put up with him?
SHANNON MARTINEZ: For five years he'd marry me?
PATRICK O'DELL: What did he say?
How did he put it to you?
SHANNON MARTINEZ: I actually read it in a magazine.
I never heard of the deal.
He made up the deal in a magazine and then I read it
and he told me that's what was going to happen so I don't
know if that's like a prize or punishment or what.
PATRICK O'DELL: How much shit do you think you
have to put up with?
SHANNON MARTINEZ: More than anyone else.
PATRICK O'DELL: Do you think maybe it's almost a relief
when he goes on tour?
It's the only reason why we're together still.
We usually see each other between eight--
around eight months a year.
And if we didn't have the breaks, we'd kill each other.
Because he's way too torturous.
24 hours a day?
There's no way.
No way.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Now what do we do?
Let's go get a beer.

Trying not to throw up, man.
I need to go somewhere private to throw up.
I got to go throw up.
Kids running over to take pictures of me throwing up.
That's great.
PATRICK O'DELL: What do you think of Dustin Dollin?
TIM O'CONNOR: I like that dude, yep.
Plus he doesn't really give a flying fuck about anything.
A lot of people say they don't give a fuck but he most
definitely doesn't, for sure.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: We're doing a documentary on me drinking.
It's going very well.
FEMALE SPEAKER: It's going to be great.
MALE SPEAKER: Dustin, nice meeting you, man.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: You too, man.
See ya.

Tell them what the fuck you're wearing I mean while you're
getting it on your ears.
Are you wasted right now after like five beers?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Three Jagers.
Can I get a tattoo?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Which you want?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: A skull and crossbones in my earlobe.
You don't do it there?
FEMALE SPEAKER: I've never tattooed there before.
Inside the ear is like way different than below here.
I'm game if you are.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Isn't there a gay side and a non-gay side?
FEMALE SPEAKER: You know what?
I wish I knew the answer to that.
SHANNON MARTINEZ: The left, apparently.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: The left is non-gay?
SHANNON MARTINEZ: Yeah, apparently.
FEMALE SPEAKER: The left side is non-gay?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Well I want to get it on the gay side.

I can't get it right.
The pen's not thin enough but I guess that's how thick
tattoos are.
MALE SPEAKER: You should get that one.
Rat bone.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: It's got to be really tiny.
MALE SPEAKER: You want it that small?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I'm gonna out it in my ear.

All these skulls look gay.
We need an evil skull.
That's good.
Even just that is good.

FEMALE SPEAKER: This is going where inside your ear?
MALE SPEAKER: You're gonna go deaf.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Do you think it'll work?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I bet it won't hurt.
Do you think it'll hurt?
No, I ain't got no pain there.

DUSTIN DOLLIN: It's all weird.
It doesn't hurt.
There's nothing.
All you can hear is the sound.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: And it's done.
You're totally done.

JASON DILL: Dustin's rad, man.
He's just-- he's so psycho.
He'll be like hurt or whatever and you'll think like, god
dammit he can barely fucking kickflip and all of a sudden
he'll like, wah!
Like fucking kickflip fucking frontside flips on some big
ass thing or into some big huge thing and you're just
like, holy shit!
Yeah, he's a maniac.
PATRICK O'DELL: So you think with all this drinking and
everything you still manage to skate a lot?
DUSTIN DOLLIN: I mean, I've had knee surgery a couple of
times, three times and I don't know, I haven't slowed down.
Still in all the magazines like covers coming out.
It doesn't really affect me.
PATRICK O'DELL: You seem like you're one of the few people
that can get away with-- like so many people that get into
drinking and all this shit and then they just
vanish from the magazines.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Yeah, well, I mean a lot of people are have
addictive personalities and it just fucks their life up but I
can not drink, I can drink.
I'd rather drink because a lot to do with drinking is it
makes me think of new tricks to do.
It makes me like-- when I wake up hungover, I feel like doing
something weird.
I don't know.
It's hard to explain.
If I don't get a good night out, it's hard for me to have
fun the next day on a skateboard.
If I don't drink and I go out the next day I'm
just like, a zombie.
And then if I drink and I'm kind of still drunk in the
morning I feel like jumping off something.
It's just the way it goes.
KEVIN "SPANKY" LONG: He's told me this before.
He wakes up drunk and drinks another beer
and he skates better.
And I've seen him go to a rail, not be able to commit
and he's like, oh no, I'll come back with a few Jack and
Cokes and I'll be able to do it.
And I believed him because I've seen it happen.
DUSTIN DOLLIN: Just drinking, being hungover has never
stopped me from trying to get a trick before so I don't
think it's going to stop me ever unless--
I'll skate as hard as I can until my body will let me.
