The Black Arts

Image hosted by

Billdozer organized an alley-cat last Halloween weekend called Occultonomy: The Seven Sacred Rites, which CHUNK 666 helped adminster. This year The Black Arts had contestants racing from haunted location to haunted location via dark, lonely paths, through graveyards and mausoleums, dogged at every turn by the living dead.

The CHUNK 666 Zombi Cadre was to man the Sellwood Mausoleum. We set up at an odd park-like installation overlooking Oak's Bottom, with racers having to edge their way down a steep slope to get the clue to the next checkpoint.

The end-point party was on the other side of town, so we ended up hitting up the Yukon for pints and deep-fried brains. I dropped my cellie in the urinal.

Second Photo Shoot

The week after the BIKE Magazine photo junket, we were informed that they wanted to do a second shoot with a better camera, or something. Fewer peeps showed up this time (for good reason, it was terribly chilly that day). These photos are by Hazel.

Chicken on a Bike

The chronic pile at the Lab is zealously defended (or not) by a vicious & cruel (but perhaps instead talkative and friendly) sentry, Henrietta the Chicken. In payment and appreciation, we occasionally takes her out for a spin...

Photo Shoot

Not long after the last Chunkathalon we were approached about an article about CHUNK 666 and Seattle's Dead Baby Bike Club for BIKE magazine. We were hesitant at first, but then we saw the pictures they had already taken of the Dead Babies, and we were in.

We rode to a location under the east end of the Hawthorne Bridge, and got to take part in a full-fledged photo shoot, with the lights and the mulitiple cameras and everything. Like super-models! We sat around, waiting for the photographer to get his lighting right, or something. Unlike models, we were not provided rails upon rails of coke. Thankfully, plentiful half-racks of Pabst were provided.

After the shoot they wanted to get some "action" shots so we adjourned to the neighboring vacant lot under the I-5. We were just riding around but there were these really fun puddles and a derby of sorts broke out.
