Country Steak Platter

Of all the songs to get stuck in my head, Kelly had to bring it to me @ the diner this morning. Thanks, girl.

Totally plowed.

Thsi is one of the sickest marketing ideas I've seen in quite a while. What reminds you of winter weather more than this. Genius.

My DVD dreams have come true, although my near perfect collection on VHS will soon be rendered useless. Anyone want a copy of Rubbish Heap? I have 3 that will soon be used to hold up that creaky table.

Crazy Aussies.

So Ralph and the rest of the mates that Chief and I mobbed around with when we were in Australia this August just now wrapped up their season this past weekend. Everyone decided to drive 3 hours to Mt. Buller, then hike up to a patch of snow for a good old BBQ session. Looks like a lot of fun. The end of their season is just the beginning of ours.

You Can't Wu-Tang Better Than Me.

UnTiffany Concept

I finally finished building my third bike after my last got stolen and I had to sell my first to get cash in order to rent a trailer to get to a show. Let's hope I can keep this one for a while. I don't plan on riding it to where I might have to lock it. It's nice to have an option to watching "So You Think You Can Dance," which always manages to make it onto the screen when my gf gets home.

Here's the stats as if you were looking at it on Velospace or some shit:

Red Bull Empire of Dirt

As I've said before, these guys have way too much money. This is such a crazy setup. Too bad the main event was rained out. Thats what you get for having it in England I guess. My bet is there will be one of these in Riverside or Temecula in under a year.

Three highlights:
1. Full sized dirt vert ramp.
2. 30ft Wall Ride S Curve.
3. Motocross sized ender jump.

Fortress of Lauderdale.

Thursday night I took the redeye from Long Beach direct to Ft. Lauderdale, FL for the Peter Glenn Southeast Winter Sports Show. After a 530am touchdown and some recovery at the hotel, I headed off to meet Flinn and sling some snowboard product in the air conditioned respite of the Broward County Convention Center. After the show we headed to a damn fine Thai establishment and then proceeded to talk shit until the wee hours with some other industry types.

On the way home I got caught in a thunderstorm while walking across the bay drawbridge back to my hotel. Fearing an iPhone shortcircuit, I was forced to wrap my phone in my shirt and make a run for it like a shirtless, homeless crackhead. By the time I got to the hotel I was as wet as if I had just jumped off of the aforementioned drawbridge. Great.

Saturday we sold some more gear. Nothing more, nothing less. I will say I was stoked to sell a powder board to a guy in the middle of Florida on a 95 degree day. Still got it.

I was able to check out Las Olas Boulevard, Ft. Lauderdale's main shopping zone, which was pretty legit. Ft. Lauderdale has a ton of Venice-esque canals, with huge homes and multi-million dollar yachts lining their shores. Lots of moneyed types milling about, wearing lots of yacht wear. Definitely a unique scene. Lots of people on shore leave from yachting around the Caribbean. A different way of life, always cool to see.

I was out of there very early Sunday AM and was back in the LBC before 9am on Sunday for some Eva time. Quick and painless, just the way I like my trips to be. Toronto is next, with a brief stop in NYC and then onto Burlington (for the second time in a month) for early next week. It's that time of year...

Final Cut Pro's.

Who has the time to make this stuff? Oh yeah, college kids.
