What the FaCK

So the first snowboard trip of the year went down this past week. No new snow anywhere in Colorado, but to not work and sleep during the night instead of the day was a breath of fresh air. My packing job was a sore sight for the first trip, with shit flying everywhere in my car, but everything seemed to pan out well. Did a little thing for TV with some friends, rode some new gear, rail jam in the downtown of Denver went well and did some urban photo stuff. All in all a good trip...

...The problem was coming back to reality. After being gone for only a week, that seemed like a month, I find myself back to my typical routine that has defined my living for the last 8 months. I got to thinking...Where the hell did the time go. Is it that easy for us to simply fall back into a comfort zone and forget that there is a world out there full of amazing people, imagery and inspiration. Why are we so conditioned to take what we are given instead of fighting for what makes us happy. I think i need to quit my job.

Week Blaster

So starting tomorrow, I get my first week off in almost 8 months working. I'm so pumped right now, it's not even funny. Anyways, my buddy Moss flew in today from L.A. and we are heading up towards Breckenfridge this week to hit some jumps and start the snowboard season. I'm looking forward to get my shred legs back under me, catch some air, spray some skiers and test out the new YES. snowboards. Also I will get to see some friends I haven't seen in a quick minute and I think I am doing some rail jam in downtown Denver. It should be fun. Hopefully I don't get lost in Denver...ha.

Launch Pad

This past week, I was invited down to a show in Albuquerque, NM. The venue was at a place called the Launch Pad, and for anyone who has ever been there before, you will know that the sound system is AMAZING, and is probably the best place to see a show in this area. Anyways, the bands that where playing that night were - The Red Sparowes and Russian Circles. They are two very innovative and amazing instrumental bands, that I have been listening to quite a bit these days, and to finally get a chance to see them play live was awesome. Overall, if you ever get to see these two bands play, you won't be disappointed. Hopefully I will get another chance to see them again down the road, if they decide to do another tour. Big thanks goes out to David Clifford, the drummer for Red Sparowes, for putting us on the guest list. Make sure to check out some of the photos my buddy Mike took of the show. Until next time...Peace.
