Death stalwart, UK Champs judge and ‘Day Release’ front man Sir Daniel of Cates sorts us out his ‘Last Orders’ this week, and if you scroll to the bottom of the page you should be able to see his section from Deaths ‘Escape From Boredom’ DVD!

Get thy read on, son!


Drink you ordered: A cup of tea to go from a cafe in Camden.

Person you spoke to: Horsey; I told him to get the tea’s on.

Trick you filmed: An ollie over some stairs and into a bank straight into a river in Berlin last week, it made Sam Ashley laugh for a whole minute! I was stoked.

Photo you shot: A frontside no-comply on a mini ramp. Mark Nicolson shot it. Dave Swift watch out.

Country you visited: Germany.

Thing you skated in your hometown: The bump in the park.

Skate event you traveled to: The UKSA British Champs at Corby, a right old jolly up.

Trick you learnt: I almost learnt street plants last week. I’m pretty exited about that one, it’s been 21 years in the making.

Trick you lost: Miller flips.

Book you read: “Murder at the Vicarage” by Agatha Cristie. I seriously could not put it down.

Time you were outraged: This morning when I woke up and realised that I was still alive.

Piece of advice you recieved: “Don’t eat yellow snow.” Steak told me that. I don’t know where i’d be without it.

Album you bought: ‘The Best of the Four Tops’. What can I say, I love Motown.

Song you sang along to: ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey. It’s the best song ever written, no question.

Film you watched and enjoyed: “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” about half an hour ago. It was as good as I remembered.

Film you watched and hated: I went to the cinema to see that Bruce Willis film where he saves the kids from the burning house, it wasn’t his best work.

Skate video you watched from start to finish: “Baker has a Death Wish.”

Website you visited: I just ordered an underwater camcorder.

Thing you downloaded: I don’t know how to do that kind of thing.

Clip watched on Youtube: I watched ‘Ask Jake’ on the Thrasher site this morning. You gotta love the Phelper.

Skateboarder who impressed you: Adam Moss.

Memorable thing that Dibble said to you: He spent Christmas at my house once, and on Christmas day he turns to me, all long faced and serious and says “I can’t go on like this, my life is a sick joke”. It was one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard, he was even more unhappy when I laughed at him for the rest of the day.
