Happy New Year

Happy New Kit to y'all.

Make sure to bring in the New Year with a Beer, Cheer, or at least a proper Running Man.

I meant to get these shots of our Coan Enterprises Ride Day™ at Brighton up after it went down on the 20th, but things have been a bit hectic around here.

The day got started mellow, but once we got halfway up the canyon we knew it was going to be good. Nate, Chris, Brock, Jake and I rode a solid 2 feet all day, sometimes more in the woods.

Utahns: The Coan Enterprises Crew (CO Staff not pictured)

Highlights included Brock's solid 25 foot headwall drop to bathtub, Nate's Jap-Knees off a nice backside rock hit, and some general all around tomfoolery by all of us old farts. We even saw Shane Carter from Burton Australia as well as some other Utah shred semi-luminaries. The day at the mountain was topped off by helping Wastell get his truck out of a snowbank. Random. He was riding a Solid board. I'd like to see them do well, I always liked that brand. Great name. One of the best in my opinion.

The session was followed up by a non Ass-Apache inducing lunch at Cafe Rio in SLC and a visit to Milosport to see Josh and Cal. All of this and I was still able to hit the Program Christmas party in Huntington and be in bed in San Clemente by 12pm. Word to JetBlue.

Yours truly chilling in "The Tub"

Rigorous Maritime Engineering

Take the time to watch this.

Cardboard's out...

7-11 does it again.

Damn you Southland Corporation.

Damn you to hell.

Higher Learning

Hit the In n Out HQ in Baldwin Park today and stumbled upon this. Might have to look into their MBA program in Condiments, maybe minor in Burger Flipping.

But seriously, I'd love to get a look inside of this place. It would probably explain their top shelf customer service.

Skid Mark


I can't even describe in words how stoked I was when I saw the name of
the Wing Stop softball team. Kudos wing shakers....

Merry Christmas Fools!

Happy Holla-Daze to the WHTCN family from all over. Santa came
correct this year but what am I s'posed to do with Sterling Silver
cufflinks from Tiffany's? Is there a way to throw them on a hoody?

Tasty Delight

It's amazing what you'll find @ the corner store.

Coal Chute

Props to the kid doing flatground in the Bills jersey.

PS-I love the 5 foot gap to tree runout.

Post Labs

I can hear Al's feet running to the closest mini mart in Queens to pick this one up.

I just decided to cut to the chase and am strictly eating Twix for breakfast now until there is a proper Choco-Mint cereal. Preferably a
Cocoa Pebbles/York collabo. Think about it.

Parking Champion of the World

I would have been pissed but the genius behind this was about 90. I'm
going to go with the "I just don't give a shit anymore" train of
thought that sets in around 80 or so as the logic for this. Okay, that
or this dude is just a riot at the early bird special and does a
slideshow of his various antics like a geriatric Jackass. I'm betting
against that one though.

Buy now.

So Green, Myers and I wander into a Starbucks just outside of Tacoma, Washington. I saw the plasma with the Now Playing info so I figured that this must be one of the Big Brother wired Starbucks where it finds your iPhone, places a logo in your iTunes, and tries to persuade you to buy some shitty middle aged white dude soft rock directly. As you can see, I was right. Does it get any whiter than Paul McCartney? Quick answer- NO.

Also, my iPhone screenshot app works. Total nerd over here.

Deck the Halls

Another crazy holiday creation from 'Starbs.

Air Jordan

So we get to Portland and Green gets us a deal at one of the nicest hotels in Portland. They put us up in the Michael Jordan Suite. We
thought this was a marketing gimmick until the story was confirmed by
several staff. I guess since starting his relationship with Nike back
in the 80's, he has always stayed here. I'm guessing it is a superstition thing.

Myers bunked in the Champ's bed. Needless to say he was stoked seeing as how MJ is his favorite athlete of all time. You have to love the randomness of the road.

Weekly R&B Banger #33

After a stretch of lip gloss smacking and partying like a rock star, feel good music is back with a gem of a jam from Bobby Valentino. Most know for his apple bottom serenade, "Slow Down", this video is an R&B classic complete with shots of fake riding a motorcyle on a trailer, solo piano shots, and a nice "Take on Me" animation bite. If you're having trouble getting tenderoni wit that new girl from reception, Try a little Bobby V.

Not Punch Out

I always enjoy watching the Home Alone series over some hot chocolate and Sloppy Joes after some sled riding at the local golf course; but when ever did the video game come out??? I might have to hit up Ebay and bust out the old system. Watch out Pitfall, there's a new kid in town.

Wet Leaf Danger

I love my girl Mariah and all, but if that damn song comes on the radio yet again, please drop kick me off the top rope.

RIP Pimp C

"Pimp C, found dead in bed in a Los Angeles hotel room last week, will be remembered with a public memorial service Thursday.

The service will be held in the Robert A. Bowers Civic Center in Pimp C's hometown of Port Arthur, about 90 miles east of Houston.

The 33-year-old rapper made up Underground Kingz with partner Bun B.

Officials said there were no signs of foul play. Autopsy and toxicology results won't be available for up to eight weeks."

*The Associated Press.

If you haven't yet already, cop the last UGK kit dropped this past summer and pay witness to greatness. Rest in Peace, Chad Butler.

Miss Crew

30 Rock

Went down to 30 Rock con mi novia to get some of this Christmas Cheer everyone keeps hollering about. Since everyone was talking about how shitty the tree is this year, I thought it would be worth a visit.

Take note of the lovely couple on the corner of the pic. Apparently, Joey Sgambatti of Bayonne, New Jersey thought it would be an opportune moment to propose to his girlfriend of 3 months, Trisha DiSalvo. Of course she accepted since she's only working as a receptionist at the Faux Glow tanning salon, and Joey just got promoted to the new deli manager at the Food Emporium.

If you can believe it, he had the ice cleared for this special moment so they could skate to their favorite song:

It was an amazingly sincere moment and I laughed every second of it, but I think the cheez in the calzones at Nicky's might be a little tastier.

We continued on to sample the window displays @ SAKS. Creative but Whatevs. I can't wait for the year they let Matthew Barney work his magic and open up the demons of hell to set 5th Avenue on fire.

VT Fridays

After a decent storm, and promises of day-of snowfall, JP, Lateef, & I headed up North to get in some riding. Since it was our first day, we weren't expecting much but after turning onto RTE 100, it was pretty much Winter Wonderland.

Riding was good. Fast packed natural conditions. Nothing too crazy built up, but they did have some mach 10 roller runs. Perfect to shake off some summer legs.

But you know what really grinds my gears? Getting stuck behind some douche driving his Chevy Cobalt like a fag all the way back to Troy. Not Awesome.

Ricky Retardo

Only in Orange County would you see some douchebag park their half million dollar car in the parking garage at the mall. Are'nt you supposed to have drivers for these? The last person I saw drive a Phantom themselves was Ben Affleck. Wait, that supports the previously made douchebag comment.

High visibility.

After snowboarding around the globe, I was faced with the worst visibility I have ever experienced at Whistler on Wednesday. Serious Thai Iced Tea visibility was the order of the day. We took a few top to bottom Braille runs, some of which you could'nt even tell which way was down. Danger.

Ridin' Dirty.

Dunno who's scarier now: Weird Al Janky Jr. or Chamilliomoney?

Yeah, keep selling dem guns @ Walmarts. NRA All Day!

Yakitori Craze @ Hagi

Finally hit up HAGI, pronounced "Hah-Gay"- like yo Momma. It's like one of those places we hit up while in Tokyo, what like 5 years ago? Jeez.

Anyways, it's my first time finding a legit Japanese Style BBQ joint. No California Rolls here. Actually, finding raw fish on the menu is pretty much impossible. There was a slammin' yellow tail sashimi special though.

Apparently, that Anthony Bourdain guy went here during one of his "No Reservations" episodes. It's where his sushi chef friends go to eat, chill, and get their sake on.
That old saying rang true. If it's full of Asians, you know it's good. I got there early and sat at the bar complete with a big screen tv playing the Knicks game and everything. The waitress came right out and asked me what I wanted to drink, in Japanese no less. Good thing I researched my Engrish.

The food and drinks were dope. Many many different sakes available as well as Kirin and Sapporo on tap. The menu was super good ranging from fried chicken, rice balls, and grilled skewered everything from chicken skin to bacon wrapped asparagus.
Def a new favorite. Peep it if you're in the neighborhood: HAGI 152 W49th near 7th. No reservations just prepare to wait on line if you come later than 7 although they are open til 3am. Holla.

Hot Batch

Nothing Like a Farmer's Market Combo to keep you regular.

Tim Horton's Strikes Again.

First Timbits, now this.

What a hack.

Sometimes using things for what they were never made for is the best part of making something. Stumbling around the internet in the wee hours, I came across Ikea Hacker, a site dedicated to refashioning/hacking the predominantly shitty but somewhat tasteful Swedish superstores furniture and accessories.

Check out the DIY cat playground up above. I don't think you can get much worse than that. OK, maybe an IKEA hacked wheelchair ramp, but you are really splitting hairs on that one. But whatever, Mr. Whiskers is chilling, so what are you going to do about it? That's what I thought.
