    Default Coleman MOTM Interview

    Congrats again to Coleman for a well-deserved MOTM! Good luck on your mission!

    Who is your favorite author?
    My favorite author. Hmmmm, thats a toughy. I am going to be a real truth-teller and say that I probably have not read enough to answer this. But I will answer this. I actually didn't really start actively reading until like my Junior year of high school and it was probably not that active. To answer the question though, I would have to say Cormac McCarthy. McCarthy is the only author so far that has emotionally struck me. The Road almost made me cry at the end. No Country was so good as well. Even though those 2 are the only 2 I have read so far, I am really wanting to read more, but I have been reading Vonnegut, Murakami, Sinclair, and Kerouac lately so I haven't found the time. And now that I am going on a mission, I am not going to be reading any literature except for my scriptures haha.

    Favorite poet?
    Man, I like a lot of contemporary poets. But I also love Ginsberg, Kerouac, Whitman, and Burroughs. But I guess, because there can only be one favorite, I'll say Walt Whitman. One of his poems actually made me feel so happy, that I had tears coming. Ultimate inspiration. And one of Walt Whitmans ultimate inspirations was the bible. Which is pretty cool to me.

    Favorite song lyrics?
    I guess I am going with Rilo Kiley on this one:

    Sometimes in the morning i am petrified and can't move
    Awake but cannot open my eyes
    And the weight is crushing down on my lungs i know i can't breath
    And hope someone will help me this time
    Your mother's still calling you insane and high
    Swearing it's different this time
    And you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her
    And that godnever blessed her insides
    Then you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things
    And crawl back into bed to dream of a time
    When your heart was open wide and you loved things just because
    Like the sick and the dying

    And sometimes when you're on you're really fucking on
    And your friends they sing along and they love you
    But the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap
    And it teases you for weeks in its absense
    But you'll fight and you'll make it through
    You'll fake it if you have to
    And you'll show up for work with a smile
    And you'll be be better you'll be smarter
    More grown up and a better daughter
    Or son and a real good friend
    And you'll be awake and you'll be alert
    You'll be positive though it hurts
    And you'll laugh and embrace all your friends
    And you'll be a real good listener
    You'll be honest you'll be brave
    You'll be handsome you'll be beautiful
    You'll be happy

    Your ship may be coming in
    You're weak but not giving in
    To the cries and the wails of the valley below
    Your ship may be coming in
    You're weak but not giving in
    And you'll fight it you'll go out fighting all of them...

    What is your opinion on the frankingmachine?
    I am going to be frank with you, I have no idea.
    How about another Rilo song?

    What is your opinion on the postagedevice?
    It has nothing to do with skating or literature or art so I dont care.

    How are you going to cope with not seeing those beautiful mountains for 2 years?
    Well, I am going to have amazing forests, be spending most my days serving people, dressing schnazzy, eating wonderful food, befriend more people, studying my scriptures, and being in a new place. I think that will keep my mind off my beautiful mountains.

    What will you miss the most from non mission life when you are on the mission?
    My family, but I will be able to write them every week. My friends, but I'll be able to write them as well. Skateboarding everyday, at least I might skateboard once a week. I think thats it.
    Where do you see yourself in 10 years time ? maybe with a son called Coleboy?
    2 years of mission.
    4 years of school and being a photojournalist, have a girlfriend
    I want to travel a bit before getting married or anything
    Maybe get married after 25. But any sooner I dont think I want that at all

    Congrats on serving a mission Coleman, you're going to be a great elder!

    Question: How are you feeling about leaving your family/friends/personal life for 2 years to serve as a missionary?
    I am stoked. I have been wanting to do this since I got out of high school. Finally I can be doing something under my own roof. I am doing this for me and no body else. I am going to miss my family for sure, but I can tell this is going to be a good experience for me.
    How often are you able to skate now?
    I have been skating so much, trying to skate at least 3 hours everyday.
    I will be able to skate once a week, depending on who my companion is. I am bring my board for sure though.
    Will you be able to skate at all while on your mission?
    ye, depends though too
    I'm assuming you're Mormon (I apologize if I'm wrong), but how is skateboarding seen by your peers and the older generation of your religion?
    Eh, I don't know, I skate my church all the time and no body minds, so I guess they dont think ill. Ummmm I mean, old people in general are probably way confused on why we skate and why we enjoy it, but I dont care what old people think. Skating shaped my personality and I think made me a better person. I love skateboarding, nothing and no one can change that.

    Favorite skate video/part?
    Ambig Vid
    All the stuff Pyramid Country puts out
    Happy Medium 1/2/soon to be 3
    are you not allowed to use the internet or a smart phone at all during your mission or will it just not be readily available?
    I get internet access once a week. But I am only going to be using it for email and updating my photo blog if I have any new photos, and maybe post photos to my facebook as well. And no cellphones are not allowed.

    What's your e-mail!?
    my email is going to be,
    I would love to hear from you all

    Are we gonna meet up and skate at least once!?!
    More than once!
    How nervous are you?
    I don't think I am nervous. I mean, I know my life is going to change, but I want to do this. So I am excited. Can't wait! March 5th cannot come any sooner and its bugging me.
    Favourite skater?
    Chris Milic is my soul partner.
    What's your perfect day? describe what you'd do
    ok uh
    wake up
    skate/hang out with friends/girls/just something fun thats not at home

    perfect day.
    If you could travel anywhere in the world for a holiday where would you go?
