For the good edits category
Hey you! If you cared to notice, it’s somebody other than Dunfee writing something today. Yes, one of our brave readers (Peter Fitts, TM at Salt Lake’s Snogression) is going to make an attempt to write about dumb ski edits, too. Want to do the same? Hit up Dunfee at firstname.lastname@example.org. No dumb ideas, please.
I looked in my inbox, and what did I see? An email from Ryan Dunfee. Why Dunfee would ever agree to letting me post my opinion on this “top class,” website I will never know. That being said here I am. My Name is Peter Fitts and I have the privilege of having a job in the industry, eww ahh who gives a flying merde right? I mean, me writing about skiing is like the NSA writing an editorial on the fourth amendment, everyone knows its going to be biased right? So I apologize (not really) if I call anyone one out for wearing Hollister, I mean Saga (thanks Kirill for the Saga quip) or nightgowns while they ski, but that is my prerogative. As TM of the very prestigious Snogression team (what, you didn’t think I would plug the company I work for?) I get endless amounts of sponsor me videos and frankly it ruins my day. I have no desire to watch you stupid kids slide 20 million pieces of Plexiglas and metal. So everyday I have to retroactively watch at least one edit that doesn’t bore the hell out of me. This week I watched one of my favorite edits of all time, featuring one of my personal heroes, Ian Wade. Growing up skiing the Wasatch I have always looked up to Ian, even though he is younger than me. Ian has ever had a different way of looking at skiing and life, which well makes him entertaining to watch. So please enjoy, or don’t I could care less.
We had so many videos coming in we just decided to empty out the inbox so you attention-deficient hooligans could waste away whatever productive hours you were planning to enjoy this Friday…
Cream of Spag Trailer #2
Brothers Huele + more Canadians
“Lego Freeskiing: Deep Pow” is the skiing internet’s newest sensation, with a completely unknown (i.e. 48 Facebook fan base) Oxburger Studios putting together a stop-motion video that not only does a great job of making a sure internet sensation edit of a Legoman skiing, but also utilizes a number of cliché ski filmmaking techniques, a number of which can be attributed to specific film companies.
If you can decipher two of the three film companies whose signature over-used techniques are depicted in the edit and a general idea of what those techniques are, you will win a BroBOMB tee. As a small hint, one of the three film companies has four separate techniques contained in the video. We’ll call the winner at 6 PM EST today! Light it up in the comments below…
For those of you that don’t know, Devo’s “Mongoloid” was Shane Szocs’ song in 13. Who the fuck is Shane Szocs you might ask as you’re reading this on your smart phone in grade school (sorry we didn’t optimize this site for mobile, but fuck you). Also, you may notice several of the coolest kids in skiing wearing BroBomb propaganda. Fortunately there’s still some left for a killer deal. CONSUME. Also, Yoke dropped their new summer line. What a coincidence!
Anyway, Shane Szocs was one of those New Canadian Airforce dudes. He is also the only skier in history to be able to do a barani (front-flip 180) in the halfpipe. Literally.
God, even the kids with tattoos on their heads can’t avoid the temptation of excessive switch-ups! I guess we’re doomed after all. At any rate, once you get through all those mid-rail hops there are some classic L. Powis park moves. According to Facebook, Leigh’s also selling a bunch of his in-plastic Icelantic 2014 skis, so be sure to hit him up if you’re in the Whistler area and want some future sticks for a price. He’ll probably through in a free cheek tat!
Now that you’ve all petitioned Congress to do something about climate change (you did sign that petition, didn’t you?), it’s back to your regularly scheduled programming. Bangers and Hammers episode II. By the way, it’s going to hit 90 degrees today where I live, and I think I would throw up if I saw a pair of ski boots.
