Going Global

Posted in News with tags , , , , on January 17, 2011 by telepromptedanthems

 

It’s a big day here at TA HQ, folks. I’m looking at a brand new, freshly wrapped copy of No Name Losers ready to be mailed out. Now I know what you’re thinking: “But Brad, that’s not a big deal. You guys must have shipped thousands of copies * over the past year. Why is this one so special?”

Well, let me just point out the address on the envelope: Queensland, Australia.

That’s right folks: we’ve gone global. Our new buddy Jake Fowler has become our very first international customer and I for one couldn’t be more excited. The idea that dudes all the way around the world are going to be watching our little movie is beyond crazy to me. So good on ya, Jake; thanks a ton for the support. This bad boy should ship out tomorrow. Hope you guys are staying high and dry out there.

If anyone else wants to get their hands on a copy of the DVD (regardless of what country you live in), check out the store.

Anybody Want to Wakeboard?

When you think about it, there are so many things that are awesome about the South: friendly people, barbecue, parties at hunting camps, Bojangles…the list could go on forever. Personally, this time of year, I’m always really grateful to live in the South because of the mild winters. I couldn’t stand to live up north because then you’d have to deal with snow and ice and lousy road conditions and heavy coats and…wait a second…oh yeah, that’s right! It’s colder than a witches titty outside and there’s five inches of snow on the ground! What the f__k is going on right now? This is the beach for God’s sake, we’re not supposed to have to deal with this! Jason just tried to order a pizza and apparently Domino’s isn’t even open. That’s when you know things are bad; shit has to really hit the fan for Domino’s to close shop.

That photo is the view from my pier back home at White Lake. I’m sure there’s some clever pun in there about White Lake and snow, but I’m not even going there. My Aunt Tee reported today that the lake was frozen and the roads were nearly impassable unless you have four wheel drive (luckily 95% of the White Lake population has four wheel drive). I guess it’s pretty and all, but I seriously can’t wait for Spring to get here.

In other news, I just got back from a TA Board Meeting at Nick’s house and big things are coming. Huge things. Things that will blow your mind. Just wait…

The Best of 2010: Wakeboarding

Posted in Random on January 3, 2011 by telepromptedanthems

Okay, so better late than never, right? Cut me some slack, I was really busy (i.e., drunk) over the holidays. At any rate, I’ve managed to pull together some of the highlights of 2010 from the wide world of wakeboarding, and I’ve arranged them all in one of my world famous lists.

2010 was a pretty good year and not to be too cheesy, but we definitely want to thank everyone who took the time to watch one of the videos or read one of the posts. And be sure to keep checking in over the next few months; we’ve got some pretty cool stuff up our sleeves for 2011 and I’m pretty excited about it all.

Anyway, check out the full 2010 roundup after the jump.
