6/8/2010 10:38:13 AM First go introduced to this the other night while completely wasted, and have probably watched it ten times now.  I'm getting his movies on Netflix now!  A kung fu secret agent midget?  How did I not hear about this before!?!?!?
6/5/2010 2:36:47 AM Passed away at the age of 99.  Any of those who were ever basketball fans will realize the affect he had on the game and everyone that came into contact with him.  The few minutes I got to hear him speak are forever ingrained in my head and he was a great man in my eyes and will truly be missed by all those who came into contact with him. 
5/27/2010 8:37:22 AM I heard a rumor that the stork is coming to visit you!  May your first child be a masculine child!
5/24/2010 6:37:55 AM In an epic achievement, reminiscent of some kind of cheezy 80's movie.  Infinity, (aka Joel, midget, little have squat) outdrank Bruizza. By the ride home, bru's head was bouncing off the window as he passed in and out of consciousness, while Joel was interviewing him about his weakness.  It was a pretty epic upset, I don't think I have seen the little triumph over the mighty like this since the final scene of Rudy. That is all. PS, any pictures Joel may have have from the massage chair in my house with handlotion and toilette paper next to it were entirely photoshopped.
5/5/2010 5:58:47 PM So much win with the Arizona thing
4/30/2010 1:20:30 PM After two and a half years, it looks like we finally get new episodes of the Boondocks this sunday.  I CAN'T WAIT! I know a few people from here have enjoyed some road trips in the Avy with me and watched these episodes, Pat can damn near recite every line. Looks like there is some Obama jokes this year finally, and the character list has everyone's favorites back including A Pimp Named Slickback, Gin Rummy (samuel L Jackson), Bushido Brown etc.  And Billy D Williams and Mark Hamil! Uh.....some of these trailers have some foul language, its on at 11:30 at night so...... Colonol Stinkmeaner is coming back from hell apparently Uncle Ruckus on Tiger Woods Will.i.am and Thugnificent Obama video!
4/19/2010 10:35:11 AM I can not begin to describe how awesome the Sierra crew is.  From riders to staff who all made it possible, I had so much fun this weekend.  It still not over as I have E13, Migs, and Rexy at my house right now and we are trying to figure out how to stagger to Mt. Hood right now. But seriously, we all know Jenn is the motherfreaking Queen of the world for all the work she puts into organizing these events.  I know its Mike's ugly face on it, but we all know that none of these would go down like they do wtihout Jenn.  So take a moment during the day to raise a glass to her for being the most awesome ever. Big thanks to Big Mike, who not only created the greatest community of snowboarders ever, but also invented the foulest, nastiest swear word in history this weekend.  I think two people actually cried when he uttered it and Levi might need therapy.  He did the math with the keg count and figured over 100 gallons of alcohol was consumed in a lodge that had something like 70 people staying in it. I'm going to be really nice to all of our wonderful community members who made the events so much fun.  I will hold back on storytime for now until more pics start getting posted.  Jenn, I know you go the goods!  Get those things up here!

4/8/2010 11:59:21 PM Check this thing out, prototype.
3/28/2010 8:37:31 PM Have one coming in but have no idea how to edit videos.  What is a simple program I can get illegally or cheaply that a total novice like myself can use to edit videos?  I just want to be able to cut footage and add music etc.  Not going to try and replicate Star Wars or anything, though that would be cool if its easy.
3/11/2010 1:32:16 PM Since the hate karma has been strong this year for snowfall, I would like to take the opportunity to dedicate the next 72 hours to not hating on anything. I'm not saying this has anything to do with me potentially riding epic powder in March at Baker on saturday.  Just doing this for the love of the community. Whose with me!?!?!?!
12/20/2009 11:52:32 AM Finally got my first runs on my new Sierra Crew today. Here are some stats for you guys/gals: Me:  5'11'' 165 pounds wearing size 10 Burton SLX's Board:  158 Sierra Crew Bindings:  Burton C02's Stance:  23 inches wide (wider than normal) 18/-9 binding angles Conditions:  Tough to explain.  it was 40 degree's out and foggy and raining.  However the past couple days we have had rain, ice, powder, rain and more ice.  So the groomed runs were actually in decent shape, other than you couldn't see more than a few feet in a lot of areas due to fog. With that said, I forced myself to take 10 runs or so just to get an idea of the board.  I must say, I almost stayed all day.  The ride is so awesome.  I have been riding the V-rocker the past couple of days on the hill, and they are so different I can't believe they are both based off a Custom.  Might as well be totally different boards.  The Crew is slightly narrower, stiffer and has that wonderful feel of camber in turns.  Where the tail propels you into the next carve.  No real park today, just messing around on rollers and bumps, but it felt like it had more pop actually and its definitely a ton more stable when going fast.  It had the light, poppy feeling of my Vapor actually, but is a ton more stable when going fast.  I would say they are a similar flex even.  The Crew probably a little bit softer.  Though it definitely rips carves way better than my Vapor does. There was still some ''untouched pow'' as the resort website called it.  Which was actually nearly two feet deep, what they left out is that it was water soaked and the consistency of grandmas mashed potatoes.  However I was actually able to stay on top of it.  Thank goodness because I didn't realize how thick it was before I peeled off a run at high speeds and basically had myself in between runs and had to finish the whole way down in ito get back to packed snow.  What I think I found most interesting about this board is it felt like it had all the things I like about my Custom X, i.e., its ridiculously fast and poppy with a ton of edge grip.  But its delivered in mellower package that you can just dork around on at the same time.  I think it fits in the Sierra lineup very well.  The Sierrascope is much softer and flexy and is a better dedicated park stick.  But 90% of people out there ride everything, and the Crew feels like it just slays it. I'm going to post a much more detailed review after Christmas, I'm spending 3 days at Mt. Hood this week and will be riding 4 days in a row.  So far though, for those who are looking for a quiver killer, you should be thanking Mike for not selling this board for $500+
12/14/2009 3:12:04 PM So excited to get out and ride on this one.  I will be taking it for its maiden voyage this weekend at Mt. Baker  
12/2/2009 7:51:55 AM Wow, I had no idea this stuff was actually real! http://www.brawndo.com/ I swear, mark my words, Idiocracy is going to happen.  Pretty soon we will be watering crops with this stuff
