WORST MONDAYS: with Patrick O’Dell

At JUICEBOX HQ, we’ve never really had a case of the Mondays because we don’t have real-people jobs. But for those feeling a bit garfield this A.M., feel free to wallow in other people’s most hated things. Every Monday!


Okay, stop me if you`ve heard this one:

Patrick O’Dell has essentially built a career around having more fun than you do. He’s been called “the most important person in skateboarding who doesn’t skateboard” because he has a good camera and travels around taking good pictures of his famous friends. His professional cool-guy cred includes being Vice photo editor, host of VBS’s top shelf web show Epicly Later’d (as well as his photo journal of the same name), and general dude about town. If that’s not good enough, he also directed the most recent Morrissey video just because he was so wholly obsessed with him that Moz’s manager let him do it.


Oh, and his photo exhibit, “To All My Friends”, is currently ramping up at Toronto’s Studio Gallery after a tour that’s hit New York, Vancouver, and probably some other places too. The show includes all kinds of digital media, compiled over years of globe trotting, depicting “skaters skating, hangers hanging, and up-too-late, out-too-often night dwellers doing what comes naturally.” All of your favourite things! It runs through to July 23. He is great. Go look. Anyhow, here’s the man of few words and many pretty pictures:

Worst day-job
Working as a caterer in NYC. Whenever I hate my life now, I think back to that.

Worst haircut
I used to have really long hair… the photo of me with long hair is too embarrassing.
[Ed.’s note: Haha, found it.]

Worst subculture

Worst date
Any time the other person says nothing. Or worse, too much.

Worst invention
Fossil fuel.

Worst purchase
Leather shoes.

Worst way to die

[edit: for those who noticed today’s blunder: whoops.]
