Travis Rice Behind the Ad

The Unique Oddities of Travis Rice

OK, not so unique but that’s a great sound bite. Regardless of good audio nuggets Travis Rice does a pretty good job of ensuring the snowboarding and non-snowboarding world walks around with their jaws dragging on the floor. One of the nice.r things is to see a guy who can haul ass like that down a mountain is given the green light to go places, film stuff and keep going back for more. I’m sure it’s to fill some deep burning passion he has for shredding or maybe it’s something else but all I care about is that it makes me want to get out and ride. Big or small terrain watching this stuff makes you want to go.

Is it a commercial for Quiksilver?

Sure is.

Do I care?

Not at all, I like the riding and their gear has been historically solid.

Plus you get more rad stuff like this

The Best Thing I’ve Read About Lance Armstrong Yet

This gem comes from the interwebs courtesy @TedCBurns as he digested the USADA report


“Take out the blood and you’re left with a lot of assertions of “who called the shots” and EPO trading/hand offs. This was not a particularly sophisticated set up like some assert. I mean, if you want sophisticated watch ‘The Wire.’ This operation is more like the outfit in ‘Stripes’.”


That means way more of this



And way less of this


Our History

Thinking from a collective sense isn’t common in counter culture. Collective terms such as the royal “we” are often tossed around but there’s less sense of community as we are divided more and more by time, distance and some of the digital ways and means. For those of us who are older this documentary is a look back at the guys we admired. For the younger ones this will be watching a movie the same way I watched ‘Dogtown and Z-Boys’ ten years ago. But, Bones Brigade: An Autobiographynull will be a common point for us all. Stacey Peralta created a movie who’s time is due and the film will benefit from him being so close to the subject matter. Not much more to say. Just watch the trailer.
