Chunk Stillman or Chunks Tillman


Faces of Deah!

Shawn Aratty

Shawn has been down in Austin for a Month or so now. He looped out first run at Hush, but I saw him crank some turndowns after. He's real good at cooking up meat chunks on the grill.

I went to a Lucero show the other night. Their songs were sad and the place was packed to the gills with babes. I saw Will Blount almost punch someone and Dean Dickinson was wasted.

heres a picture of jake and i hanging out.

  I changed my motivation for a little while and have been working long hours to try and get some money to buy new tires for the bus and catch up on some things. It's hard to be on the other side of the fence for a while. I'm usually the one asking my friends to do stuff and they say they cant because they have to work.  Doing electrical work is fun and I get to watch the sunrise every morning.

love your job and you'll never work a day in your life

Chess Table

I have been spending most of my spare time working on the bus. I will be in Austin for one more month, and I want to have everything finished before I leave. I spent a few days finishing up the Chess board table.

It came out awesome and Jake and I played the first game on it.


the Geo

I bought this crappy car for 500 bucks when i was 18-19 and beat the shit out of it for a while. I used to have a picture of it a while ago, but I lost it. An old friend sent me a picture of the picture.. man that car was a beauty.

Austin life

I love in down here in Austin during this time of year. Such a wide variety of people in town. Here's a few random pictures from life in Austin for the last few weeks.

Dylan 2

It was nice to have the big D in town for a day and a half. We made some Stratego pieces and he taught me how to play.

we watched the city at sunset


and then when the clouds cleared, he was back on the road.

Surprise Visit from Dylan

Dylan called me and told me he was in Austin. He rode his bike here from New Orleans and was headed to the West coast. I like where Dylan's head is. He is on a bike trip across the country with basically no gear at all. a sleeping bag and the clothes on his back. He's riding an old bike he got for under 100 bucks, he threw some wooden fenders on it.

He got to town and hung out for a night. he was going to leave in the morning but a rain storm was coming in so he stayed another night. We woke up early and went for a bike ride before the rain came in.

Rode out to Mount Bonnell. strike the same pose on this self timer.

Welcome to the Woods

They built a nice set of horse shoe pits at Eastside. James Nutter has dialed in the double bop .

I went out there on Friday, John Ryan soaked the jumps at sunset. We were able to get in a half dozen runs.. My friend took a few pictures..

Mobile liver

John Ryan moved to town and then bought some huge long horns for the front of his jeep, a little vintage camper trailer, and 300 dollars in star wars legos. He can grill up a mean dead cow chunk.

Ditch Mission

After seeing that ditch on the road bike ride the other day, I had to go out there and ride it. Matty and I pedaled there and hit a few fun spots along the way. This DIY alley skate spot was a damn good time.

And the we found the Oasis. And started getting squirrelly all over that thing. It was tricky to ride it and it felt kinda like a pool. I took a few pictures of Matty riding it. He did an air to tire slide 180.

The Trails and Tribulations

The jumps in Austin are all running really good right now. Not so Hush had like 30 people there having a blast the other day. It felt like riding would feel on the moon after a nice soft rain... There were a bunch of radios playing hit after hit and everyone was just doing trains all day long.

Bobby Parker was clicking turndowns on a 24".


quarter pipe blast..

Riding on the Road

I love going on road bike rides in the morning. It's a nice way to start a day. It's a lot different going on bike rides in Austin. I'm used to big rolling hills with trees and fields everywhere, and here you are just pedaling through neighborhoods. And when you do get outside of town enough to not see a house, there is bolts all over the street from all the crappy cars falling apart.

This was shown to me on the last road bike ride...

cheese bag

The prototype cheese bag got made, and its looking bad ass. I was talking to Vicio The Artist about how no one makes a bike bag specific for a BMX but that gigantic DK golf bag. That things cool if your Drew Bezanson and your hanging out in Hilton Hotels on road trips, but the trips I usually go on, there's no room for Golf Clubs.
   He got in touch with the finest sail maker in Paradise and designed the most inconspicuous flight bag, so you dont have to deal with the hassle.

He also sent me a picture of the flags I sent him, in action...
