Since we were at the zoo anyway, we looked at a few animals. One of which was this massive hippo. I'm always blown away by how huge most animals are, and how if they were smarter and wanted to, they could stomp the shit out of us little humans.
Oceanside has fun parks, this is Ben Smith skating one of them.
Ben's still amazing at skating after all these years.

Like I said, this little bank to curb was one of the funnest wait no... funner.... wait no.... most fun things that I've skated in a while. Sorry Roselle park.
Angle iron ledges for miles!
Then we went to a really fun bank to curb that's the easiest and most fun thing I've ever skated!!!!!
This guys was there!
Sorry for the boring post. I should spend some time and try to think of some funny witty things to say about these clips, but I don't want to.

How old are you? 24
What is your favorite color? blues
Favorite animal? I don't know, I haven't figured it out yet. I've been trying to discover my spirit animal, but nothing has come to me yet. When it happens, I'll know.
Why aren't you in college? Because I don't understand paperwork.
What are you going to be when you grow up? Lately I've been thinking about social work. Teaching has always seemed good to me. Something involving kids though, that's for sure. But if I could really live my dreams, I would have my own talk radio show.
What made you start this blog? I'm not sure. Curiosity mostly I guess. It's taken over a good portion of my brain power though. It's scary because I could probably learn a new language or something if I spent as much time on it as I do on this damn blog.
Why did your ads get disabled by google? Oh you heard about that, that's crazy. Well google was monitoring me and then could tell that all the clicks were just Ari clicking them for me so I could make money. It sucks because I was up to like $28 dollars from those ads. Thanks anyway Ari.
So where do you live right now? Nowhere. I'm homeless.
How did your Arizona house become such a hangout? It was that way from the very very start. The first week that I even moved in there with Greg, we had people staying there. Out of three and a half years that that place was around, there was a one month period where there wasn't people living in the living room and hanging out all hours. I miss that place though.
Who all lived there over the years? Me, Greg Piloto, Michael Tubbs, Billy, Dave, Dylan, Adrianne, Steve Davenport, Bart Jones, Pat Franklin, Kryger, Blevins, Brett Reed, Mat Corwin, Ryan Reyes, and maybe more.
Could you name everyone who has ever spent the night there? No way.
Yeah. Okay. Me, Greg, Tubbs, Steve Davenport, Bart, Dylan, Adrienne, Brett Reed, Wes Baker, Corwin, Spudboy, kryger, blevins, ryan reyes, billy, zak arctander, steve fauser, ari shiffrin, myagi, delaney, lauren almeter, bucky miller, buzzy sullivan, charlie stanly, jamie larson, nick, zoe pope, eric shollen, erst boys 2 and 3, punchy, ted, cameron harper, preston harper???, tyler harl, mat price, scott gall, finnin, rachel lee cook, rachel (my sister), rachel(tubb's sister), justin ward, mike ward, andy ward, random bar girls(with tubbs, not me)((haha)), chris corville, patience, kevinly, cody bear, chucky, garret, ultra jessica, ben smith, brad rogers, tom gallager, chris fetter, ashley, serwaa, tory spears, tommy hay, tony labarbera, pvb, steve perdue, pob, gorty's deli, andrew elliot, bindi man, tj larsen, alex v, adam conway, and on and on and on. I don't think that I could ever remember everyone.
Yeah, that's a lot of people. I wish that I would have made some sort of sign in sheet or something. Or if I was super artsy I could have taken a polaroid of everyone who stayed over and hung em on the wall. I could have impressed so many hipsters if I would have planned better.

Drew blunts to fakie for humidity.
After we killed the tennis courts... twice. The pretty boys took me to Shitside! More DIY stuff than you can shake a stick at.
He suffered double big toe injuries, and it started to rain so we left.

Here Brett Reed noseblunts for Chumpchange, but some bootlegger from B&WdA (Wes) tried to film over my shoulder. You can see his hand flash across the screen in an attempt of sabotage, obviously it didn't work, because I got the clip.
When his first attempt at sabotaging my blog failed, he sent in an accomplice to do his dirty work. This would be assassin(dylan) did a much better job than Wes did, but I still got the clip. Damn I'm good.
I was able to fight off my assassins long enough to get this perfect clip of a perfect noseblunt, and then I got to give a healthy FU to the one's who tried to take me out.
Thanks to Brett Reed for landing this noseblunt every single time.
Well, almost every time!

I learned Krook popovers on the big rail. I originally filmed this video exclusively to send to Ari Shiffrin because he's the best at this trick, but I also wanted to show the internet that I can do them.
Chris Courville blasted a phatty bo batty!
Blevins feebled and fiveO'd.
Kryger turned up the sex in the park with this invert attempt.
This video didn't really work because the lights went out, but Steve nosegrinded and someone yelled 'chumpy omega'
And I wanted to end the post with a Chumpchange debut from Tom Gallagher. Here he turns from a regular horse into a beautiful wing-ged Unicorn.
good day overall, but then again, they're all good days.
"Tim, you lied to me. This is just hard and annoying!" Wes Baker in reference to me telling him that the curved hubba at the Shaumburg skatepark was the funnest (most fun?) thing to skate. Here he is giving it a go.
others tried and failed.
Things got messy.

This post is for anyone who thinks that making a succesful blog is easy. I know that most of the footage that we get on here looks like it's filmed and performed effortlessly, Thanks for the compliment, but it's not all as easy as it looks. Here are some clips from the other day that show the dark side of filming an award winning blog.
