the album panned out to be just OK to me, but i’m sure it’ll grow on me.  it’s not their usual sound and the music really sticks to the theme of the album cover and title.  this song is the highlight though.  thanks itunes commercial.

san diego, i’m comin’! time to flex my photography skill muscles.

so my snowboard is sitting in my living room.  i think i’ve put in on, oh maybe, 3 times this week to stand in them and practice my ‘edges’ just chillin on my couch with them on.  only if i could move, i’d hobble around in my apt in them.  it sucks that this is a seasonal sport…mostly for america.   but i can’t wait to go back up to the mountains.

possible locations?
whistler, canada
colorado rockies again
lake tahoe
big bear, CA
albequerque, NM
sand dunes of the sahara

regardless, it’s gonna have AT least once next year.  i’m itching to get carving down.  i just wanna freakin turn.  i’m not talking traversing/feathering.  i’m talkin about livin life down the mountain and doing the toe turn break.  yeah…even bought pants today.  talk about just looking like an ass in my badass clothes.

brand check: salomon, burton, vans, flow, nautica, oakley = all on sale, fools!

side note:  thinking of selling my sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 for something else but it’s dam nice to have that wide/macro lens…  need to buy a flash tho (canon 430ex) and want that 85mm f/1.8 prime baby.
