So you think I'm funny

Check this out (press play)

Here's the rest of them.

And this site should waste a few hours of your life.


I can't believe it, this is my 405th post!!

Holy crap, what a year I'm having. Where do I even begin?

I've been snowboarding like the world is running out of snow. Man has it ever been fun. We've got a great crew up at Mt. Garceau and the snow is crazy good up there for some inexplicable reason while it's crap everywhere else. I'm riding better and faster than ever and starting to throw down 360s - sloppy but fun. Besides just riding, the bar scene has been a riot too, the crew has been awesome and it's like an endless group hug after a long afternoon of hucking and flying.

Whoah! Since my birthday last November, it's been an endless string of bro-ing down with old mates. Some kids turning 30, some turning 40, all of them having monster parties. Which brings me to my party last weekend. God damn, what a party. Lets see, all the guys I invited didn't show up but all of the girls and their girlfriends did!! Whoaaaah - that's a party. A few weeks before, I hosted another birthday party for about 15 people and turned up the soundsystem to 50%. That's louder than most nightclubs. Last weekend, it was Big Gay Al's birthday and I called my neighbors in advance to let them know things were getting loud. They didn't hear the previous party so this time the sound went up to 65% with about 45 peeps mostly chiquitas. I can tell you that there was some dancing and ummm well I can't say much more :) Last night at Misto was more of the same.

With all these parties, I've been DJ'ing again so I'm stoked about buying records and getting back into the groove. Kano @ Moog and Jacob @ DNA are my new unofficial sponsors. Maybe it's the other way around? I'll be hooking up my studio again and hooking up Serato Scratch soon. Stoked.

Damn, I'm working hard and smart these days, hope I can keep up this pace.

Ahhh, I love life when the volume's turned up. Here comes the summer!

I haven't listen to MC Hammer for a while so this one was a cool find.

This dude is doing some crazy cool math to put together some cool software that I can't even describe. Watch this video to see what I mean.

Sven is a pretty funny dude so it's quite entertaining.
Get the software here.

Went for a few drinks last night and ended up with a whole whack of chiquitas and pro snowboarders including JF Pelchat and the quicksilver crew.
On that note, there's a surprise party with the Sessions/Hyperlite/424/Misto crew at my place on Saturday nite, just call me or show up at 8. Should be off the hook. My kidneys are scared.

Wuzz nu

I am really glad I took a break from snowboarding for half a decade because I'm enjoying it more than ever these days. I guess having a wicked crew to ride with has a lot to do with it too. I would think that that's the case with everything right?

Well spring is springing today so I'm starting to get amped about getting the dirt bike out next month.

What else? I've always wondered why hippies/eco-protesters didn't just buy out their issues. Being a protestor in the first world just doesn't cut it if you don't put your money where your placard is. This dude is on the right track, my hat off to him. Although the hippies might find some reason to take offense with his approach, I'm all for it. In fact I think that there should be an eco-exchange where first world individuals/collectives can bid on second and third world problems with sustainable ways to fix them. The thing that this fellow above didn't do is replace the incomes of the poor saps who cut and haul that wood, but it's a damn good start.

My blog was down for a while last week because of a flakey storage unit at blogspot. For a while I thought it was gone for good. To some extent, I was almost relieved. I'm not sure who is out there but it's kind of weird position to be in having people peering into your life. I run into people I haven't seen all the time who know what I'm up to. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing yet (?)

It really is later than you think

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think

Woe is me

Those of you that know me probably know that my biggest ambition is not to be Donald Trumps bitch but rather to build the worlds most ginormous catapult/trebuchet.

I'd like to build a smaller one too, to throw people into the lake. To do that and not kill them, I'm going to need this. Here's a video.

A full sized trebuchet generates 20-30Gs so that would prolly kill you in a few dozen milliseconds. I'm figuring 5-10Gs is the limit, even then you might get a black eye or two.

How cool is that?
