time traveller!!!!

the other day, i was reading about this charlie chaplin film that was made in 1929; where it apparently shows a guy walking past the camera using a cellphone. so, a quick youtube search later i find the clip below. check it out, and decide for yourself; time travel, maybe not? but still an interesting vid

muy caliente!

i think its clear that other than motorcycles, snowboarding and chillin; i love to eat, and these days there is nothing that i like better than mexican food, peperred with some good quality hot sauce, mmmm.

so the other day, Jai and i are cruising about and come across this place called Chronic Taco located on Broadway and Cambie in Vancouver. First off, this place is easily the cleanest and slick looking mexican place i have ever been to. Next up, it was time to order - Fish burritos are my personal favourite right now and the choice was either beer battered, or grilled(awesome right). Grilled was the choice of the day, served up baja style.

how was it you ask? freakin awesome, and easily the best burrito i have ever had. yes, hipsters will say that budgies off main is better, but i have to disagree. To add to the tasty burrito was the selection of hot sauce's on every table; with my favourite being the gringo bandito, which is offspring frontman, dexter hollands own hot sauce brand.

after checking out the place, the family and i have returned for more on 6 different occassions, and each time its been banger. Yep, the name is wack, but if you dig on good quality mexican food the chronic is where its at.

dan brisse is a beast!!

I know you’ve heard it before, but seriously Dan Brisse is savage. His part in the new Absinthe flick truly showcases Dan’s insane shred abilities and balls to the wall riding; straight up, it’s truly worth the price of the flick by itself.

In an age when dancing on the rails is the trend, I dig Dan’s fu#$ you approach to jibbing; 100% commitment to every move, with no wavering or hesitation + the guy can also slay a back country kicker.

just look at that gap, freakin bonkers

Overall, Now/Here is a solid flick and I liked it much better than last years Absinthe movie; yep the soundtrack did not work for me, but that usually the way it is with absinthe stuff so what can you do. As for highlights, pretty much everyone has good parts, including an amazing one from last year’s ender Bode Merrill. Also of note is the YES snowboards crew of DCP, JP Solberg and Tadashi Fuse, as they all have killer sections with RDM having his best that I have seen in a while.
