j'aime montreal

back to montreal for work work, not photo work. pretty much all business this trip but i did manage to snap a shot of the holiday lights in the city.

we also had a fun dinner out at a place called l'entrecote st. jean place was real interesting because it only served one thing. a sirloin steak with french fries. now you can get real crazy and add the soup and salad as well as desert, or for a lighter fare you can just get the salad. nevertheless, if you eat at l'entrecote st.jean you will be having the sirloin steak.

bottom line is they do one meal and they do it well.
few other pictures below, obligatory wing shot and sunset pic as well as some shots of "boris bold" a nice little beer out of france. i like the description on the can and at 8.6% it is not lying..

rocky mountain high... i already miss ya

back in cleveland, 31 and raining buckets of gloom. gray, gray, gray... figured i would post a few more shots from colorado to at least make myself feel better... i hope it works.

after leaving this to come to that, i am putting myself on suicide watch.

this was the only shot that was taken before the cops came in breck... it is of kara's roommate, for the life of me i cannot remember her name... but you get the idea of what we were trying to accomplish.

happy friday-grind, act like you know... holy shit this looks bad

jumping off walls in nice mountain towns

drove down to breck to meet up with kara rennie to shoot some pics of her doing some of her snowboard trickery. unfortunately, we also meet up with the summit county sheriff. apparently towing snowboards behind cars on state highways into private property is not legal. so kara came up to vail and we found some walls to jump off of, or i should say kara jumped, i just laid in the snow...

again unfortunately for kara, i did not take the best of photos... but she killed it and we ended up riding some great snow on the hill.

check out some of the pics below...

run to the hills

back in the hills of colorado. spending a few days in vail riding the good stuff. first day here, first day riding of the season and we had something like 14" of fresh snow... not a bad way to start out the season, but also a day that makes you wish you worked out a bit harder on those legs.
meeting up with nikita rider kara rennie

this evening to shoot some pics in the greater metro breckenridge area, stoked about that, should be a good time.

first chair?

agora sign

coming home from the cavs game tonight, saw that the agora sign was aglow. i have loved this sign since i moved in and wanted to take a picture of it forever because i love neon signs... turns out the cavs win, coupled with a few beers made tonight the night...
during the day it looks something like this.

during the night it looks more like this.

i wish i was more like this...

happy friday-ski school, act like you know, because you know you stayed up late and watched it for the gratuitous T&A

exercise your rights

75 years ago today the final workings were put onto the 21st amendment repealing the 19th amendment, which is better known as prohibition. pretty fantastic that the 75th anniversary fell on a friday... this evening, think of it as doing your civic duty to have a few pops... it is america's way of saying "treat yourself".

happy friday-out cold, act like you know... afterall todd richards is in it

this is just cool

no pun intended... found this at boardistan, super magnified snowflakes, neat...

bumps magillicutty

back when i was a park guy pushing around a spork on the jumps and jibs of northstar, i was lucky enough to be involved with a lot of amazing movies. mack dawg, standard, forum, lots of fun. however, my hands down most favorite thing that i was a part of was the DC movie. they came to northstar with a amazing crew, lots of fun toys(read snowmobiles, big trucks, etc), and they also brought todd richards and travis parker who were the funniest duo i have bared witness to. everything was a joke and everything was fun, one piece suits, zinc oxide abuse, high fives and even the alter egos of those two, bumps magillicutty and susch mogulman... it was awesome. at any rate, todd is now old enough and has been around long enough to get a bio pic(didn't shawn get one when he was 20?). whatever, this one looks like a good time, be sure to check it out and check out the trailer below in the meantime.

oakley uniquely

do you like girls? do you like girls on boards? if you answered "yes" to either of these then head over HERE and get a free download for oakley's new flick uniquely. uniquely highlights the travels of oakley's line up of lookers in surf, snow and skate. worth your time to download and watch, because besides being hot, the girls are way better riders then you are.

happy friday-extreme ops-you might not know, so just act like you do...

this might have been the peak of "xtreme"

holy football

so i am not the biggest football fan in the world and i am really not a huge fan of football fans as a whole. nevertheless, that did not stop be from traveling to football fan mecca with my associate mr. lintern. green bay, wi and the frozen tundra known as lambeau field was the destination. we traveled up to milwaukee by air and then took a bus to madison to meet up with none other then ms. katie weid, long time friend from university of colorado, all of our alma mater.
at any rate, a friday night in madison, was followed by a weekend of cheese and football in green bay. even for a fair weather fan like myself, this was quite the unique experience and something that i was stoked to be able to do. for those who don't know lambeau field is sold out for the next million years, the city of green bay lives and dies for the packers and everyone has a great time. big thanks to katie for making it happen and to her folks, chris and big jer for being awesome. biggest thanks to big jer for giving us a ride to and from the strip club...
enjoy the pics

red bull cola

had my first red bull cola... pretty good, very colaie, full of all sorts of natural stuff including coca leaf... yeah the same stuff uncle pablo made his money off of... ok, so you have to do some other stuff to it to make it that, but it is fun to say...

give it a whirl, if you are into cola you'll dig it... i think i will stick to regular sugar free stuff...

happy movember!

so in honor of movember(november, national moustache month), i have taken it upon myself to grow a moustache. in growing it i realized what a persons facial hair said about them... see below please.

the beard-
can go several different ways for me, but what comes to mind first is... i am an earthy guy, i shop at whole foods, i play the guitar in my free time, life is pretty good.

the goatee-
this says one thing to me... damn why couldn't i have been around seattle in the early 90's, (please note the flannel), i love starbucks and i love mudhoney, the early stuff.

ahh, this one-
i live in brooklyn, possibly williamsburg although it is getting way too packed with lame posers, i ride a fix gear and i think i am better then you.

and finally...

this one says i am headed to green bay, wi this weekend to watch the chicago bears play the green bay packers in a football game loaded up with miller and cheese curd.

it also says... happy movember!

i gave my car for a heli trip

sorting through older photos found these from the n*east magazine heli trip. this was the trip that i totaled my car on the way. somewhere along the line and computers of the past, i have lost the photos of my car head first into a tree, too bad. however, i still have all the trip photos and that is a good thing. they ran in the article "to heli and back" in one of the magazines last issues. even though the magazine owed me a grip of cash, i still get sad when i think about it... the magazine not the money.
at any rate, here are a few pics that did not run. enjoy, and if given the chance, i would suggest trading your car for a week of BC heli time... i am pretty sure it might have been worth it.

this is neefus on his board being pulled by the truck in the less then warm air of a revelstoke, bc evening
