New Series

This could be the second installment of a new series on this blog called "I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a joke or not!"Because I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a joke or not!!!!!

Good Times Roll from 2HeadedHorse on Vimeo.

just a thought..

I just watched a show about the secret service and it blows my mind how much money, effort, time, and potential human lives are expendable to see to the safety of one person. I understand why they do it, it's just crazy to think that some people's lives are 'worth' more than others.....

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

I can't figure out if this is a joke or not.

It's an honor....

They spelled my name wrong, but still it's a nice thought.

Saturday, December 5, 2009

Double trouble.

Arizona is an amazing place to have a blog... lots of skater doing lots of trick lots of times.

Ryan Reyes or Dylan Reider?

Things got a little bit serious and I had to edit the footage so that I wouldn't blow out Ryan's tricks before the 'video' comes out.

just the usual chumpchange stuff here.... nothing special...... just the usual boring stuff.

Old bones

All my older friends can disregard this post. But now that I'm 25, only one song makes any sense anymore........

When I'm lyin' in my bed at night
I don't wanna grow up
Nothing ever seems to turn out right
I don't wanna grow up
How do you move in a world of fog that's
always changing things
Makes wish that I could be a dog
When I see the price that you pay
I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever want to be that way
I don't wanna grow up
Seems that folks turn into things
that they never want
The only thing to live for is today...
I'm gonna put a hole in my T.V. set
I don't wanna grow up
Open up the medicine chest
I don't wanna grow up
I don't wanna have to shout it out
I don't want my hair to fall out
I don't wanna be filled with doubt
I don't wanna be a good boy scout
I don't wanna have to learn to count
I don't wanna have the biggest amount
I don't wanna grow up
Well when I see my parents fight
I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinkin all night
I don't wanna grow up
I'd rather stay here in my room
Nothin' out there but sad and gloom
I don't wanna live in a big old tomb on grand street
When I see the 5 oclock news
I don't wanna grow up
Comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don't wanna grow up
Stay around in my old hometown
I don't wanna put no money down
I don't wanna get a big old loan
Work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna float on a broom
Fall in love, get married then boom
How the hell did it get here so soon
I don't wanna grow up

My personal favorite clip of the night was from the dude that you usually don't find tossing himself down huge gaps like the tempe six stair! Pete Trapasso switch heel down the bitch!

Here's a bonus clip of Zoe getting down on the six stair from about 4 years ago........

Brimley sure can throw a carcass toss

Today was a big day. The Brimley Fast Kickflip contest took place at the wedge. Chumpchange was on scene to cover the days unfoldings as they ... unfolded!

The day's first even was also the main even: The Kickflip contest!

Ted, JonRob, and McCarthy

Ryan Reyes, some random serious guy, Andrew McCarthy, and Ted Schmitz. The crowd loves TED!

The 3flip contest was a carcass toss!

Dylan and Mccarthy

Ted was trying to take down his idol in the nollie flip contest.

But Ryan wasn't going to let him off that easy!

Saturday, November 28, 2009

Welcome to the other Moontower!

Dear Jeremy Tubbs,

I've stolen your material. I'm taking over the documenting of Indiana's finest!

Bread tailslide bigspin.

Michael Shaifer's Chumpchange debut. Backlippy.

Double debut, boardslide fakie.

Wes will will try anything for money.

Including really stupid shit.

Sean was a little jealous of all the attention Wes was getting.... so he decided to hit the stairs as well.

Tj's boneless changed the tone of the evening and things got a bit more serious after that.

Tj and Wes.

Indiana boys going the distance

First things first: Sean Waeiss is amazing. Longest frontside boardslide ever done...... YES

and here we have from earlier in the day. The Indiana boys quads boardsliding the longest rail ever to be sliden!

but it was no easy task

Saturday, November 14, 2009

This post took me forever

Towards the end of this last summer we were running low on skateboards, so some of the staff members were forced to share....

Here they start off with a simple hand off!

Then things got a little more interesting

Since Ted was such a glory hog on that last clip, Buzzy decided to get some revenge!

But in the end, It was Ted who proved himself to be way more of a glory hog!

uh oh

It looks like my journey is not over.................

Friday, November 6, 2009

Here we go again!

I can't imagine anyone being very psyched on this, but I've started a new blog. It's called "Likes and some dislikes" and it's about me and the things that I like and dislike.

Lately I've been wanting to make lots of lists. Lists of movies, lists of bands, books, places, things. Lists of whatever. So I started this blog as just a way for me to talk (haha) about things that I like, love, enjoy, respect, etc. I don't know what will come of it(the new blog), but when I started this blog I had no idea what would become of it either. I had no idea then that it would turn out to be the internet's most talked about blog!

This is an example of something that I like a lot.

Story that no one asked for.

One time I tried this...........

for what felt like hours. I didn't land it though. This was on a day when I was actually 'filming' back when I used to 'film.' I remember my friends girlfriend was there when I was trying it and I blamed her for me not landing it. haha. bitch.

Thursday, November 5, 2009

I wonder if I'll be as interesting to anyone as he is to me!


I really like the stuff that comes out of the Moontower blog. Midwest skating is looking better and better all the time.......

Interesting news from 1982

I can't believe that this actually happened, and near where my family lived no less. My mom told me that she had taken two Tylenol that morning before she had heard about the poisen pills.

It's a blog off

I've got some behind the scenes footage from this edit right here! Despite me calling dibs on the exclusive right to blog Ryan Reyes, Aric B decided to violate the bloggers code and film him anyway.

Oh well, at least he filmed him slightly better than I did!

Friday, October 23, 2009

Harl rules(I guess)

Harlo (whatever that is) lazerheelflips (whatever that means) up the Tempe (where ever the hell that is) euro gap (if it's even considered a gap)

God(tim) Save The Label (some money)

I figured a way to save Black Label some money....... kick Adam Alfaro, Chet Childress, and Jason Adams off the team and pay Ryan Reyes a tenth of what they're paying those clowns. He can do all their tricks, and he's one drunken night away from getting God Save the Label tattoo'd on his forehead, so why don't the just get three skaters wrapped up into one devoted devotee!

Thursday, October 22, 2009


I could have joined this trip, but I didn't.

and now I'm sorry.
One time..... I spent the night here.

Monday, October 19, 2009

Ryan Reyes......... visiting, which is always the best. He's supposed to be here for three weeks, but Ryan's never been one to stop by for a quick visit. I would love it if he'd stay forever. I just wish that I had some stairs for him to live under.

I've been saying for a while that Ryan reminds me of a young Greg Piloto, you know, before the shit hit the fan, but no one agreess with me. Here's the proof: without meaning to, Ryan does a perfect Greg face.

Music blog!

Obviously, Karen O hasnt' seen this!

Otherwise she would know that it's dumb to sing about something in your house that's used for lookin in cuz it's really dumb to sing about mirrors!


This is one of my favorite parts of a movie. I like it because I would love to have enough gusto to do something like this.

Randy Ploesser

One of the least boring skateboarders that I've seen.


Me(and my name) have made somewhat of a comeback on skateaz lately!

The future..........

Someday this picture will be used in a documentary about how famous bloggers Timothy Ward and Wes Baker were at one time good friends, before their Internet fame and fortune tore their friendship apart.

Bloggers helping bloggers.

This guy has a new blog!

Read up

Finally, the story of my blog has been adapted into a book.

You better read it before the movie comes out!

A bit late.........

.... but a few weeks ago, my fish, Chopper, died. I don't know the cause of death......

but I intend to find out.

Deaf ears only please!

"nike will stop at nothing to penetrate every sport, every market, and find ways to sell you a sneaker, a shirt, or a ball."

That was the closing line of a CNBC documentary that I just watched about Nike. They talked a lot about Nike breaking into skateboarding and it made me furious. Skateboarders need to watch out for skateboarding, and the next generation of kids definitely isn't going to do it. Kids today think that Zumiez is a skateshop and the Nike is a skate shoe company.

True Calling

The Vivian Girls show was pretty awesome last night. But what is even more pretty awesome is that I found my true TRUE calling... Concert Photography. I'm going to go get some new business cards made.

Here's a real photo taken from Preston over at Bloggytreats!

Here's some of my other previous works!
White Stripes

The Thermals

A long wind!

I just realized something. Four years ago today is the day that I packed up my car and left home. I had saved up about $3,500 from working all summer at a car dealership, and part time delivering Chinese food. $3,500.... I'm yet to reach anywhere near that amount of money since leaving my comfy home in Geneva, Illinois. I don't remember how I picked that day specifically to leave. I didn't have any deadlines or limitations, so I think that I must have just picked October 13th for no reason. I enlisted my good friend Zoe to ride along with me.

By the way, when I left home, I was California bound. Arizona was just going to be a pit-stop on the way to my new home/life in California. I was going to go out and stay with my friends in Santa Ana.

I was supposed to spend a year working, skating, and gaining my residency so I could go to school out there in sunny California.

It's fun to have plans, but it's more fun to look back at how my 'plans' have panned out.

On the way to make my 'move' to California, Zoe and I spent an awesome weekend skating in Arizona at all the parks. I still went to California but after a few months of watching Fuel TV, sitting in traffic, and hardly skating I decided to move to the desert and start all over again. Arizona seemed like a place where I could skate a lot more, with way fewer hassles. Again, I was going to spend a year working, skating, and gaining residency so I could go to school. But instead of doing so in sunny California, I chose to do so in Sunnier Arizona.

Again with the plans.

Here I am 4 years later. Working(sorta), skating, and still not in school due to residency issues. My plans haven't all come about exactly as.... um, planned, but I'm still really enjoying Arizona for what I wanted to enjoy Arizona for: the weather and the skateparks. I didn't anticipate meeting as many awesome people out here as I have over the years, but that's been a major bonus and a huge factor in how much I've enjoyed living here.

Anyway, I guess my point is this: The different sets of plans that I've made over the past few years haven't come to life, and my new plans(the ones that change almost everyday) might not come to life either, but who cares. As long as Tempe park is open every night and Venezia's stays in business, I'll be just fine.

Kevin Taylor is amazing. Possibly underrated?, possibly right where he should be? I don't know. I just think he's awesome and for some reason I get the feeling that he's really nice in person. I hope I meet him somehow someday.

I'm going to get to see these lovely ladies later tonight!!!

I'm very excited.

Michael Tubbs!

Found some cellyphone clips of the homie Tubbs skating!

One of these days I'm going to get all creative like. Write a story and start a radio show.... but for now it's just going to be cell phone vids that no one watches!

Friday, October 9, 2009

We skated some Chandler park last night. These clips are dedicated to that little dog that I saw get pwned by the SUV.

I saw a little doggy get hit face first by an SUV tonight.... it was rough, and I'm not even really a dog lover, but this little guy didn't stand a chance.

'Drugs are going to hurt you, whether you take them for the right reason or the wrong reason'
This isn't my photo to post, but I'm doing it anyway. I think this is one of the funniest pictures to grace my eyes. Me posting it was inspired by an amazing kid named Kimi Judds who lives in Japan. The caption on this picture is about as funny as the picture itself.
