Irony

I thought it was hilarious when i stumbled across an internet addiction site that has a blog,

does that mean that in order to seek help you have to relapse??

ha, oh wow, funny.

This video is so lame! oh wait, that's me!

I went to the Tamarack website today to see what they had to say about them sucking, there was a link to an Idaho ski site, with a horrible video on the homepage (soul of skiing). it is the perfect example of cheery faced, smile-through-your-teeth marketing, it tries to cater to everyone it can in the most pathetically fake cheerful voice. I think it resembles everything i've come to hate about the french method of marketing and ski resorts and i am saddened it's made it's way to the states.

anyway...

so here i am giggling at how lame this video is and that you can see Corey Mac in it after like 30 seconds when... wait... what... no!!! THERE I AM!!! no mistaking it, that's my signature grab-rail-method-euro-carve. but wait, that's totally wrong i don't have a green board! who is this impostor, wait is that a skate banana? it is~! so who has a..? GEORGE!!! but then that means this was shot in colorado not idaho, ha funny poorly advertised, wait no!!! George came to idaho and i rode his skate banana!! muah ahahaha i am genius man/.

although i do remember something about riding with someone who was taking stock footage, i searched my iCal, as i kept a pretty detailed riding journal last season, there was the day with George but no mention of filmers
Then i clicked back a few days and i see it, one day at bogus with Daniel and Corey Mac, last spring break, where i had taken Georges banana up when i drove to idaho, so he didn't have to fly it, borrowed it for a day and made some laps on the home hill.

All the little stories behind one shot in a randomly discovered video.

*Note: when i glanced at the bottom, where i used to keep track of notable stuff for the day, i realized this was just when i started relearning backside spins after mentally losing them to cab spins, and starting switch backside. then all this noseblunt nonsens, i thought i was an idiot for amoment, knowing full well that noseblunts don't really exist in snowboarding and a 180 into a noseblunt is not possible. until i rememberd that sweet little bank to mailbox corey had setup at the bottom.

I'll stop talking now about stuff no one cares about.

ADDITION:

Check the adjoining video for more of corey mac's sweet back tail's, back 360's and so on, and i think puprle jacket is Phil?? not sure can't remember
