What's new with the Duffman?
Learn the rules mike, you don't need to ask. You know what im up to. Well, for the who don't I have just been skateboarding a lot. Trying to get stuff done for some new videos. Also working on an interview with my friend Dave Chami. Trying to get that finished up, but its getting cold out here in the creek. Winter is coming in hot. Well actually I mean its freezing balls. I got two new tattoos, haha. good times. My friend Chris and I both got the same one, its awesome and the other one is a heart with a dagger going through it; it has my dogs names on it "Crash and Wrecks." which are symbolic for; walnut creek, my home town, and my initials. William Corey. Other than that, same as always.
Heard you got a new lady in your life? Is it true she is only 4ft tall?
Well well well. Im dating this fucking awesome chick. Her name is Rachel Travers. She is a drummer in a cool band called Mister Loveless. They are some cats who I grew up with and went to school with. The dudes in the band were my skate crew when I was younger. Rachel kills it on the drums. Check out their website and their new EP.www.misterloveless.com
She is a lil one, but aint 4 foot. I think she's a few inches taller than the average lil person. Hahah shes like 5'2. A real babe though, my kinda girl.
What happened to scrawny Duffel?
Doughnuts and burgers. Well truthfully, when I broke my leg, I got bored and started working out to stay in shape. I bought some weights and starting pumping iron. I got a punching bag to fuck around with. I guess getting thicker is just a part of growing up, im not that 16 year old chump no more. Well i might still be a total chump but im not as small.
What do you have planned for 2009?
live fast skate faster. I wanna get tons of good tricks, stay healthy and injury free. Finish my tws part and make it the best i can. have a good time with Rachel. Same as always, live the good life and kick out the jams with all my homies!
