Growing up in...

What was it like where you grew up?

Growing up in Croydon was comedy gold in the best way possible.

Sure, at the TIME it was Hell on Earth, but now that we're older... Feels pretty bad ass to be from the Hood. I part jest (am half joking).

Grew up in sunny Portugal.

Became a teenager in Canada. It was cool until I turned 16 and figured out there was nothing for kids to do.

Nothing to do? Did you live in the territories or somewhere in northern Quebec?

Southern Ontario.

My shitty town didn't have anywhere for us to go at night. We ****ed about, driving about, riding in the trunk. Sometimes running away from guys with baseball bats. Drawing dicks in the snow of random houses. Running away from cops after a bush party. Carpe Diem.

We'd have to drive to Montreal for some boozin' and find a way back home. F that S.

Growing up on the backstreets of Drogheda, Co. Louth, I was a particularly happy child. Me and my childhoods buddies: Tom, Matthew, Paul and Nigel used to skitter off to dear old Mr. Clancy's bakery located in the Dale on the fringe of Woodset Avenue. Oh, what a time we had. I remember we used to scavenge his flour-encrusted soda bread and saunter out the shop like nothing happened! And then he'd be chasing us with his pine 7 inch by 3 inch rolling pin all the way down to St. Mary's Street! Oh what a time we had

North/East London, it's brilliant. There's a park at the end of my road so my childhood was spent there playing football. Once I got older we'd just get on the underground and go all around London, brilliant people here, loads of shit to do. A large majority of it was spent listening to Lou Reed records in the park, I couldn't ask for more really.

Goddamn that sucks. Actually, that sounds like the kinds of things I did. Only difference was that my friends and I did all that in downtown Toronto. Looking back on it, We all almost got stabbed a few times.
