One Shot

April 24, 2008

I know, it’s not snowboarding, but we also love music (and music videos).  The other day a particular video caught my eye, and sent me on a spree.  Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Liam Finn, the new king of the one shot music video:

You all know Feist loves ’em:

A really nice one from Wintersleep (congrats on the juno boys!… ok you too Feist):

One I have always loved from Iron and Wine.  What a great song.  I believe Sam Beam directs his own videos… multitalented:

Weakerthans did one too… not as cool… maybe cuz i dread those freakin’ yellow and orange busses:

Weezer, of course:

The Chilis too!  I never realized how short Frusciante was… cool… and what a voice:

Thank you Orson Welles… thank you Mr. Vargas.  If you haven’t seen “Touch of Evil”, check it out… it’s at least worth a good laugh.

Good ol\' ranger

The Mud Lake Militia’s preferred mode of transport.  Loaded up with three sleds and six dudes, for a half hour trip up the highway.  (photo copyright 2008: Mark Jory)

If you build it they will come.

Burning skiis smells funny, and is bad for the environment… but it sure looks cool.  I really wish I had a pair of those skiis.  Yeah that’s right, I ski.  (photo copyright 2008: Sarah Peterson)

Hardingham, Keenan and Sarah Peterson all had fun at the nose-picking party.  Andrew won $30 dollars racing Jeff and Jonas Guinn in boardercross earlier that day; hence his look of pure joy.

Most days shooting I get 1 run.  I quickly realized in Blue River how horrible I am at scoping big mountain lines.  On this particular day I got to hit this rock jump at least 10 times, ending the session with a spectacular scorpion and punching myself in the head.  Awesome.  (photo copyright 2008: Mark Jory)
