When I was asked to set up questions for this interview, I was stuck trying to find similarities between the two guys. I wasn’t sure how I would make the interview apply to both of them without the questions being too broad. I had a few things jotted down on paper, but for the most part was able to do some free styling with a little help from Sandro Grison and Joel Dufresne. I’d already known Skylar for a couple years, and had seen Dan around from time to time. From what I can see, the two couldn’t be more different. Yes, they have both spent some years living in the fine beach town of Penticton B.C. but just about every other aspect of their lives differ. The morning of the interview, I texted Dan saying we’d be meeting up at 6pm at the Color office, to which he confirmed. Skylar called me around 11:30am stating that he’d be there and that he’d already started drinking. Dan’s day was pretty standard for him. He made some coffee, browsed a few hip hop blogs for the days playlist, skated to work, and bombed home to hit the bong before meeting me at Color, on time. Skylar on the other hand (I knew might have needed a reminder), was MIA. After some calling around, I ended up talking to his roommate on Facebook who gave me a random girl’s number, finally getting through to him. By this point he could barely put his sentences together but had agreed to meet me on Granville Street so we could head up to the office. When he arrived at the bus stop, he came with a girl on his arm, someone else’s sunglasses, and pink lipstick all over his face and neck.
