2012-83: Looking Backwards at Looking Sideways

Looking Sideways x Endeavor Snowboards x Vans Collaboration from Looking Sideways on Vimeo.

This lovage landed in the inbox well over a week ago and I’ve been meaning to post it up. That has kind of been my unintentional approach to the entire We Look Sideways project—it’s always been on the radar, just towards really, really close to the edge. Then again it’s a European project. I’ll add that to my list of excuses.

Nonetheless, it’s a really cool project. The people behind it seem to be some top notch MFers. Give it a look. And when they finally bring this project to North America, maybe you can get involved. Or find some other reason to not send in a pic of your eyes, shifted.

I had a very similar project I was tackling in college, but it was just asses. And I only had like 5-8 pics. Definitely a strong piece.

Thanks to Matt Barr for bringing this to my attention. He and some other raddest people on the enetz, Chris Moran, Rian Rhoe, et al., were knuckle deep in it.

Have I kissed enough asses yet? Do I get to go to Europe and talk about snowboarding all the time now?

As I said, be sure to check this out.

 

Facts and Lies

Monday, December 7th, 2009

So I finally got some rippering in this weekend. The jewel of the Midwest, Tyrol Basin opened up so me and Keith dragged ourselves over there to ride. It was as much fun as you can imagine. It’s also important to note that this place, as awesome as it is, is tiny. You know at Northstar, the last little down slope coming out of the park, where they have the halpipe? That’s about 3x the size of Tyrol. Most importantly, don’t forget your bloody mary.

 Then I went home and signed my shit up on Riders’ Journal. Rider’s Journal is a slick little website that lets you record the days you spend riding. Where you go, who you rode with, what your rode for the day, and you can even let other riders know what costume you wore that day. New this year Riders’ Journal will even let you set up goal for your season. None of that I want to do back-to-back cab 1080s but more like, “I want to ride 8 days and consume 17 drinks at the slope-side bar. And remember pics or if didn’t happen. (this has been a paid endorsement from ridersjournal.com. I get paid in stickers, which is better than mtnops.net)

 So then this morning my friend Lorenius is claiming she has some kind of missing-link Letter Press. The fucking Lucy machine if you will. I guess there were a few steps between the Guttenberg and the Canon mp600. Then she sent me this image:

I’m thinking this rig is certainly on the great ape side of the missing link, but none the less she’s claiming this is some sort of machina ex deus. And to really get down on it, I’ve been around. I make the occasional rueben sandwich, or at least have the help cook one up for me. I know a damn meat slicer when I see one.
