I know I know I know.... It's been FOREVER since my last post. I'm SORRY, but if you could see the amount of stress I've been under trying to figure all my packing and shipping and working at the showroom and hanging out with people before i leave and lunch dates and dinner dates and potlucks and Blond-o-Meal parties and birthday parties and getting my costume ready and trying to remember to not be late for my flight and taking my cousin to his flight and a MILLION other things...well...you would understand.

Luckily, good ole Louie Vito, who sadly got voted off Dancing With the Stars tonight, said this...

POST BURTON B PREMIER




So, having already seen the video - i knew what to expect and the whole IMAX deal was cool. It was like we were all on a field trip. There were goody bags and some of the team riders were there to give out some rad prizes. The video is a bit short but over alllllll the riders parts are decent and the big banger ender, it was my favorite part, was pretty rad. Everybody is gonna hate and be like that video was stupid blah blah blah Shaun White this blah blah. Yeah, he had a ridiculous(in a not so good way) part, but it's SW...what else do you expect. So anyways, i liked the video but the after party at Ozzies was where the REAL fun was had...

one word.

KARAOKE

I'm just gonna come out and say probably the best four performances of my Karaoke career.
Kumara and I performed such hits as:

Everybody - Baskstreet Boys
Red Light Special - TLC
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
and
Walk Like an Egyptian - The Bengals

Needless to say I'm pretty sure Kumara and I out Karaoke'd Mason and others...despite the claim of karaoke masters.
sadly something was wrong with my camera and a lot of the pics came out blurry
but you can still get the jist of how good the night was.

red light special

"now throw ya hands up in the air - and wave'em 'round like ya just dont careee"




So as you can see from the pics...we got down...waaaaaaay down.
oh and just a lilt reminder...I'm completely sober...
I like to party.

i cant wait for all of ours next time to party...oh it's tomorrow...what a surprise!

HOW THE NORTHWEST WAS ONE PREMIER


OK so seriously one of the funnest premiers I've been to in a while.
The video was EPIC and on tip of it the environment had high fives and good vibes flowing throughout.
The show was held at Evo and packed full with at least 100 people supporting each and every rider in the video. Cheering and woo-hooing for every rider throughout the whole film was awesome. The feeling was just amptness on top of stokedness. Just being in the jam packed shop - you couldn't help but wanna strap in right there.

The video had an obvious western theme. Kinda like how Familia had the mafia deal - these NW boys were cowboys. The boys couldn't have been more pumped. All little boys grow up pretending to be cowboys and now they're all in a video together being cowboys AND snowboarding. BAM. 2 birds 1 video. You could tell they had fun making it and we all had a blast watching it. Big up to my friend Joe Bosler who had the big ender. Stoked for him.

here's the teaser to check out - i highly recommend spendin' the cash and gettin' this one for that dusty shelf of yours.

and here are some pics from the night...



my friend Ryan was the bunny that night... so good


After the show was my friend Kumara's "IM ON A BOAT" birthday party here are some shots from that...

this is Cowboy.

boat in the kitchen
who wants a mustache ride...any takers?

The night over all was awesome i was stoked to see some people and even more stoked to hangout with them for the remainder of the night. I'm going to miss Seattle more than i thought i would. it's a shame i love Mammoth so much...mid season trip? I think so.

NEW PAINTINGS

So Chris, whom the paintings are for, finally came and picked them up last night. I was holding off on posting them so that he wouldn't get a sneak peak. Now that they're off my living room floor and on his living room wall, I can share with you one of my favorite pieces I've done in a while.

It's a series of three pieces on 24"x36" canvas spray paint and acrylic





It was like i was 15 and giving my child up for adoption...almost brought tears to my eyes while placing them in the back seat of Chris's car...but i had my real baby inside waiting for me aka new G-Twin setup.
Trades are SO GOOD.

Make Art - Not War
