O-Town, Here I Come

Posted in Random with tags , , , on July 22, 2008 by telepromptedanthems

Pretty psyched right now; I just booked my flight for Surf Expo. Although it’s taken a year and a half, living in Greensboro has finally paid off, in the form of a nonstop flight to Orlando for $60 round trip. It would cost way more than that just to get down there if I was driving. I’m all for road trips, but I just couldn’t turn that down. Of course, it came out to about 100 bucks after all the fees and the convenience charges and the f__k you taxes that they added on, but whatevs. I just hope they stay in business long enough to get me there and back.

To add to my good mood, I just got back from seeing “The Dark Knight.” All I’m going to say is that it will go down in history as the most awesome GD movie of 2008, no questions asked.

Also, has anyone noticed that every video we’ve done all year has been taken from the same year old footage? Everyone call Nick and tell him to get in the game and send me some tapes to edit.


Rejected CWS Teaser

Posted in Features, Wakeboarding with tags , , , on July 9, 2008 by telepromptedanthems

A while back, Rob Mendieta asked me to put together a teaser for the 2008 CWS tour, and so I did. The thing is, he wasn’t very psyched on the original version.

In my defense, Rob’s description went like this: “Yeah, you know. Something EPIC. Something that grabs your attention. Something with a lot of SLOW MO. Really hard tricks, yeah, that’s the ticket! Oh, and be sure to make it really HEAVY HITTING with lots of fast cuts and a fast pace, you know? Really QUICK CUTS, okay? Oh, you know what I mean. It needs to be really good, okay? Seriously. Really good, got it?”

Now I ask you, dear reader: would you have any idea just what the hell he was talking about? Of course not, me neither. Anyway, I think he likes the final version, and it should be posted on the CWS site soon, so keep your eyes peeled for it.

Also, I’m fully aware that the videos look like total ass, and I’m trying to figure out why. Once I figure it out, I’ll re-post them with better quality. Sorry they look so rough. If anyone wants to send me a bunch of money so I can get them hosted properlike on a steaming server, feel free to send it my way. If we all do a little, we can do a lot.

PS – Two posts in one day! I’m on fire!

Whoah, Buddy

Looks like shit got real up in here while I was gone. And I thought I was the only one who took his frustrations out on the internet; well done Nick!

As far as the grammar goes, everyone pretty much knows that if the post looks like a 5-year-old special ed student wrote it, chances are pretty good that Nick was the one who posted it. Just saying.

Since I haven’t been around in a while, I figured I’d leave you with some random thoughts to discuss amongst yourselves until next time.

1. Liquid Force makes great wakeskates. I just got a 42″ Reed and it rode like a dream in the rough waters of White Lake.

2. Forget Drive, I can’t wait to see The Dark Knight. I am also really looking forward to the DVD release of Iron Man since I missed it in theaters.

3. On Friday I’m getting an iPhone. I will then be the coolest person you know. I’m accepting applications now to decide who will be the first person I call. If you’re interested, get your submission in ASAP; there’s only 2 days, 18 hours and 20 minutes until they go on sale.

4. I want Carrie Underwood to be my girlfriend.
