Maarten Warning

Raised in a town on the outskirts of Amsterdam on a healthy mix of hip-hop and skateboarding, Maarten has been pounding the keys on his keyboard for nearly 10 years. After earning his stripes as an editor for a Dutch hip-hop website, he and three friends founded Lacebag, the first Dutch website and forum solely dedicated to sneakers and streetwear. His newest venture is Noise Magazine, a printed skateboard magazine which is available for free in skate shops throughout The Netherlands and Belgium. You'll most likely find him near a fridge filled with cold beer.

FAVORITE ALBUM OF ALL TIME 
Cannibal Ox – The Cold Vein.

2 TRUTHS AND A LIE
I’ve been coached by John Starks.
I lent Sean Price €50 so he could bang a hooker.
I interviewed Bobby.

ONE FOOD YOU COULD EAT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
Burritos.

LIFE MOTTO
Knowlegde is power.

BEST $20 EVER SPENT
Train tickets to my first date with my now girlfriend.

FAVORITE CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED THING:
Invisible socks.

MOST HUMBLING MOMENT:
I broke my leg a few years ago. First time I broke something and all of the sudden I was back at my parents’ house for a few month with a cast on my leg. The time spent by myself, just lying in bed, helped me think about life and kick started some necessary changes.

I SHOULD’VE BEEN BORN IN… [YEAR/DECADE/ERA and why]
Since ’90s NYC is a huge inspiration to me, I’ll pick mid-’70s New York, so I would’ve been the perfect age to experience it all.

DESCRIBE YOUR PERFECT DAY
Wake up early, long hot shower, American pancakes for breakfast, watch a new 30 for 30, ride my bike through a sunny city towards the park for BBQ and brews with friends. Afterwards, head inwards with the posse and play “competitive” video games and/or sing karaoke.

WHAT’S THE CARTOON CHARACTER VERSION OF YOU WEARING?
Hoodie (hood up), denim and either Chucks or some weird tech sneaker.
