6/4/2010 1:02:59 PM Okay, so FINALLY I've landed a good job in a role that I've been trying to get since I moved up here. I'm starting Monday as an Assistant Account Executive at a pretty good sized media agency in the city!! ::happy dance:: Yesterday was my last day telemarketing (though it was supposed to be today) so now I get to enjoy the sun and the ability to check my email on a computer (not on my phone). Can't wait to celebrate!!
1/17/2010 7:16:49 PM This is Bruizza and I am editing Cheezy's post to try and help those few of you that still needs rides or have room for people that need rides.  IF YOU NEED A RIDE OR HAVE ROOM TO TAKE SOMEONE UP PLEASE POST IN HERE WE HAVE 4-5 DAYS TO GET THIS SORTED OUT.           Hey guys, So I'm getting into CO for Bruizzapalooza at 7:55 pm on Thursday, Jan. 21st. I was set to have a place to stay Thursday and Sunday nights, but at this point it's fallen through. If anyone knows of a place I can crash near the Denver airport, I have a ride set for Friday to Steamboat from there. Another option is possibly finding a ride to Keystone Thursday night if anyone will be around. (From there I may also have to finagle a ride from Keystone to Steamboat on Friday). I'm going to look into other possible flight times hopefully tomorrow (either earlier on Thursday, or maybe Friday...) Willing to throw money in for gas, etc. Any help would be appreciated!!
11/23/2009 8:34:43 PM So I know there are a lot of NYC and NJ riders who will be going to Mountain Creek to ride. Season passes are $299 until December 6 or the first 2" of snowfall. With a group of at least 4 people, we can save $10 and get some gifts and extra lift tickets...more with 8 people. Does anyone have or want to start a group for this discount? http://www.mountaincreek.com/ticketsandpasses/seasonpass/index.htm
9/2/2009 4:25:28 AM Anyone in the NY/NYC area know about or planning on going to the 7th Annual Great World Beer Fest?? My friend is going and told me I should, too. I don't have any other plans for the weekend anyways... I was just wondering how many (if any) people on here knew about it! http://brewtopiafest.com/
7/5/2009 6:56:42 PM Okay, so I'm not sure how familiar anyone is with the women's boards, but I'm trying to decide between these two [Rome Blue 154 vs. Burton Feelgood 152]. From what I've read, the Rome Blue is pretty much Rome's answer to the Feelgood. I have a Rome Detail now, but want an all-mountain/more mountain specific board. I've read good reviews about both boards but I'm not sure whether I want to just stick with Rome or try out a Burton. If there's not much of a difference, I could just base the decision on graphics or cost, but I figured I'd ask around first.
3/18/2009 11:59:50 AM Just found this on facebook. Robert Applebaum proposed the idea of forgiving student loan debt to stimulate the economy and get consumer spending up. I wonder if this could/would work. It'd make me incredibly happy though. haha.   Some of his links are at the bottom. His description for those w/o facebook access:   President Obama just signed into law a $787 billion stimulus package on top of Bush's grossly mismanaged $700 billion TARP bailout from last September. Since last fall, the government has paid out approximately $2.3 TRILLION in bailouts, handouts, loans and giveaways, with no end in sight as our leaders try anything and everything to try and get our spiraling economy under control. While some of what Washington has already done may act to stimulate the economy, much of the $2.3 TRILLION already spent will, no doubt, turn out to be just money wasted. Tax rebate checks DO NOT stimulate the economy - history shows that people either spend such rebates on paying off credit card debt, or they simply save them, doing little to nothing to stimulate the economy. Presumably, that is why they were removed from the final version of the stimulus bill. The tax cuts that were included, however, amount to a whopping $44 per month for the rest of 2009, decreasing to an even more staggering $33 per month in 2010. This is hardly "relief" as it is likely to help nobody. The Wall Street financial institutions, auto manufacturers, insurance companies and countless other irresponsible actors have now received TRILLIONS of taxpayer dollars to bail them out of their self-created mess. This, too, does nothing to stimulate the economy. It merely rewards bad behavior and does nothing to encourage institutional change. There is a better way. How many times have we heard from our leaders in Washington that education is the key to solving all of our underlying societal problems? The so-called "Silver Bullet." For decades, presidents, senators and members of Congress have touted themselves as champions of education, yet they've done nothing to actually encourage the pursuit of one on an individual level. Some of us have taken advantage of Federal Stafford Loans and other programs, including private loans, to finance higher education, presumably with the understanding that an advanced degree equates with higher earning power in the future. Many of us go into public service after attaining such degrees, something that's also repeatedly proclaimed as something society should encourage. Yet, the debt we've accrued to obtain such degrees have crippled our ability to reap the benefits of our educations, causing many to make the unfortunate choice of leaving public service so as to earn enough money to pay off that debt. Our economy is in the tank. There isn't an economist alive who doesn't believe that the economy needs stimulating immediately. The only debate now centers on how to go about doing it. While the new stimulus plan contains some worthy provisions, very little of it will have a significant and immediate stimulating effect on the economy. The Obama Administration itself doesn't expect to see an upsurge in the economy until mid-to-late 2010. Instead of funneling billions, if not TRILLIONS of additional dollars to banks, financial institutions, insurance companies and other institutions of greed that are responsible for the current economic crisis, why not allow educated, hardworking, middle-class Americans to get something in return? After all, they're our tax dollars too! Forgiving student loan debt would have an IMMEDIATE stimulating effect on the economy. Responsible people who did nothing other than pursue a higher education would have hundreds, if not thousands of extra dollars per month to spend, fueling the economy NOW. Those extra dollars being pumped into the economy would have a multiplying effect, unlike many of the provisions of the new stimulus package. As a result, tax revenues would go up, the credit markets will unfreeze and jobs will be created. Consumer spending accounts for over two thirds of the entire U.S. economy and in recent months, consumer spending has declined at alarming, unprecedented rates. Therefore, it stands to reason that the fastest way to revive our ailing economy is to do something drastic to get consumers to spend. Let me be clear. This is NOT about a free ride. This is about a new approach to economic stimulus, nothing more. To those who would argue that this proposal would cause the banking system to collapse or make student loans unavailable to future borrowers, please allow me to respond. I am in no way suggesting that the lending institutions who manage such debts get legislatively shafted by having these assets wiped from their books. The banks and other financial institutions are going to get their money regardless because, in addition to the $700 TARP bailout, more bailout money is coming their way (stay tuned!) - this proposal merely suggests that educated, hardworking Americans who are saddled with student loan debt should get something in return, rather than sending those institutions another enormous blank check. Because the banks are being handed Trillions of dollars anyway, there would be no danger of making funds unavailable to future borrowers. Many of the vocal nay-sayers who have curiously joined this group seem intent on ignoring the fact that Washington IS going to spend TRILLIONS of dollars, likely in the form of handing blank checks over to more and more banks, as a way of getting the economy under control. Normative assessments of how things should be are fine, but they don't reflect reality. Accepting the premise that Washington WILL spend Trillions of dollars in unprecedented ways (a good portion of which will just be trial and error, since we're in uncharted waters), what is the argument against directly helping middle class people who are struggling, rather than focusing solely on the banks and other financial institutions responsible for crisis to begin with? Further accepting that there is an aggregate amount of outstanding student loan debt totaling approximately $550 Billion, (that's Billion with a B, not a T), one is forced to ask again, what is the objection to helping real people with real hardships when all we're talking about is a relative drop in the bucket as compared with what will be spent to dig us out of this hole? In a perfect world, I share these biases towards personal responsibility and having people pay back what they owe and making good on the commitments they've made. But we don't live in a perfect world and the global economy, not just the U.S. economy, is in a downward spiral, the likes of which NOBODY truly knows how to fix. This proposal will immediately free up money for hardworking, educated Americans, giving them more money in their pockets EVERY MONTH, addressing the very real psychological aspects of the recession as much as the financial ones. Is it the only answer? No, of course not. But could it help millions of hardworking people who struggle every month to get by? Absolutely. Given the current economic climate, as well as the plans to spend trillions of additional dollars that are in the works, one must wonder what is so objectionable about giving a real helping hand to real people with real struggles. 2009 and the new Obama Administration is supposed to be about change. Nothing in the new economic stimulus package represents a significant departure from the way Washington has always operated - it's merely a different set of priorities on a higher scale, but it's certainly not materially different from any other economic stimulus package passed during the past few decades. Washington cannot simply print and borrow money to get us out of this crisis. We The People, however, can get this economy moving NOW. All we need is relief from debt that was accrued under the now-false promise that higher education equates with higher earnings. Free us of our obligations to repay our out-of-control student loan debt and WE, the hardworking, middle-class Americans who drive this economy will spend those extra dollars NOW. If you believe that there's a better way of climbing out of this economic crisis, one that empowers us to directly spend money, start businesses, free up credit and create jobs, then please join this group and encourage others to do so as well. There's strength in numbers - the more people to join this group, the louder our voices and the greater the chances of being heard by President Obama and Congress. Support REAL change we can believe in!   www.huffingtonpost.com/jon-chattman/forgiving-student-loan-de_b_164103.html   www.usnews.com/blogs/capital-commerce/2009/3/8/the-next-bailout-cancel-us-student-loans.html?s_cid=rss:capital-commerce:the-next-bailout-cancel-us-student-loans   http://www.thestreet.com/video/index.html?bcpid=1459183594&bclid=1137812485&bctid=15331405001#15331405001   http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/2/16/12214/9992  
2/18/2009 1:22:39 PM My mom won a cruise in Atlantic City and we land in Los Angeles next Friday. The ship doesn't dock until Saturday afternoon. Any recommendations of places we should stop by or visit in the downtown LA or surrounding area(s)...? What kind of stuff is there to do/see (besides shopping, etc).
2/6/2009 2:39:44 PM So...I was watching Mr. and Mrs. Smith yesterday and was thinking: Angelina or Jennifer? I figured the SS community would be interested in conducting the necessary research to decide this ultimate question. Who is hotter?? I posted some pics to start things rolling, but feel free to post your own.  Discuss amongst yourselves.
1/22/2009 9:33:31 AM I have off all day tomorrow, so I figured I'd sleep in then head out to one of the farther mountains--preferably Whitetail as I have yet to ride here. Anyone gonna be around/at either of these mountains from the community?
1/10/2009 10:40:13 AM I'm still really new to riding, and slowly getting more comfortable trying out new things. I'm not the fastest rider, either, but my board "excels in the park" and my slower speed has tons to do with comfort and nerves. Anyways, as I'm trying to keep progressing and finding new things to keep riding interesting, how long do most people ride for or what should a person be able to do before trying out park-type things? Obviously, I'm not about to start off with big jumps and rails, but I'm doing pretty well riding regular and goofy, and can get in some spins on the ground. Stories? Advice?
12/15/2008 8:14:33 AM *Dropped price* I have a pair of size 11 Black/Gold Shaun White Burton Boots for sale. I'm asking for $70 (Retail is $249.95). They've only been worn a few times.   This is what they look like:  
12/14/2008 7:47:15 PM I have a pair of Men's size 11 Burton Shaun White boots for sale. They're Black and gold and have been used a couple times (though never by me).   This is what they look like:   I'll attach an actual picture when I take/upload them.
12/8/2008 6:39:25 AM is off to a GREAT start!   Last night I went snowboarding and fell coming off the lift (only once) but I rolled and my right leg (which was strapped in) rolled too--and popped. I can walk on it without much of a limp, and I feel like something PROBABLY needs to be popped back in...or maybe it will work its way out...   I can't lift my leg very high or swing it forward (like a normal kick) without pain. If it doesn't "fix" itself by the time I get off work, I'll be going to the doctor or hospital for x-rays and to make sure it's not dislocated or something.   YAY!
11/16/2008 9:25:16 PM ...but I thought I'd see if maybe I could get lucky.   Just wondering if anyone has old goggles/gloves laying around they'd be willing to get rid of. I've only been snowboarding a couple times--literally 2--in my life, but I just bought a season pass, a board, bindings, and boots. I'm attempting to control my splurging/spending habits, so let me know if anyone's got extra stuff they're not using. All my gear is from last season or before, and these are the last two pieces I need.   I'm definitely willing to pay if the price is right; I just don't see myself paying $100 bucks for goggles. I'm going to cross-post this and check the usual sites--ebay/craigslist etc.
