6 Years Ago


[YouTubeUlar] <— 89,921

It’s that kind of mood.  6 years ago at 10:00pm we put my father down … don’t have much else to say there, one of the craziest most difficult things anyone can ever go through.  Staying up late … listening to music … something my dad would do — I found this Uncle Lucius gem.  Perfectly fits the mood.  Had to put it on repeat – and then research who in the hell is this Kevin O’neil Galloway guy.  He’s playing in Steamboat at the end of the month – I’ll go.  The shot beginning at 3:45 and ending at 4:17 (a full 33 seconds) in this music video is ridiculously awesome.  Cheers world.  Cheers Dad.  Here is a night photo of your grand daughter today.  She is awesome.

Uncle Lucius — Keep The Wolves Away:

“Took my first breath where the muddy Brazos
spills into the Gulf of Mexico,
and the skylines colored by chemical plants
put bread on the table of the working man.

Where the working man does his best to provide
safety and shelter for kids and a wife,
Giving a little of his soul every day,
making overtime to keep the wolves away

I was barely 13 when the company man
tried to dig my daddy’s grave
It happened on a french owned tanker ship
spilling poison in the Galveston bay

Where the liquid fire filled his lungs and his eyes
silenced any mortal cries.
Codeine the grit but death stang in pain –
He fought like hell to keep the wolves away

For the next few years dad was sick as a dog,
but he made a recovery just to spite the odds.
Settlement came and we moved out of town
where the sky isn’t heavy with refinery clouds.

Yeah he’s still alive he’s doing good, he’s in his fifties
but the money’s running out and he’s pinching for pennies
so Im going for broke with every song I play,
cause now it’s my turn to keep the wolves away.

This song is going to take off, like a rocket.

Wait – it already is. Especially if you watch cult like netflix shows with your girlfriend.

Cloudy Shoes – Damien Jurado

I wish that I could float
Float up from the ground
I will never know
What that’s like
You have a way about you
I wish that I had
Thought it was impossible
To live and love like you
Funny how we all can change
If we just try to
Thought it was impossible
To live and love like you
One day you will be taller
Taller than the sky
Until that day you will be
Here with us below
Magic will do what magic does
Living in your eyes
Do you think someday soon
You will have the time?
I could use another hand
To help pull me through
Someday these hospital stays
Get the best of me
Trying to fix my mind
Still trying to fix my mind
Trying to work it out
I’m still trying to fix my mind
Still trying to fix my mind
I’m still trying to fix my mind

happy birthday dad.

20 Years of the Salomon TenEighty


[YouTubeUlar] <— 20,238

The first two minutes of this Salomon TV tribute to JP Auclair and the history of the Salomon 1080 is filled with ridiculously awesome banger quotes. Take your pick, and enjoy the flick.

“JP JP JP JP JP JP JP” — Everyone

“I think the greatest thing you can do with one of your friends is to remember them in your hearts and in your minds… and here everybody is and I think it’s just the coolest thing ever. I really do.” — Blake Jorgensen

“Thank’s a lot everyone for coming out on the 20th anniversary of the New Canadian Airforce and honoring a great man … JP Auclair.” — Mike Douglas

“Here we are, Blackcomb wind lip session … it’s been a long time since I’ve seen something like this go down. It’s a throw back to the old days, the tribe has rallied… it’s just good to be here man, it feels like old times.” — Feet Banks

“It’s awesome to see everyone getting fired up, just sending it, just strictly out of love for him.”

“Vinny and JP’s and Szocs and Mike, they are just on the next level”

“Every single trick they did was groundbreaking and never been done before… and what really stood out for us is that a lot of the shots we saw were in Whistler”

Well, this is where we kind of learned a lot of this stuff. So to be back here exactly 20 years later is super super cool.” — Mike Douglas

“That was the first back flip mute I think I’ve done in about 10 years … that one was for JP” — Mike Douglas

“My back is sore, my shins will be sore… and I need a masseuse and a hot tub. I can’t do those hard landings anymore.” — Shane Szocs

“Back to 97 baby!” — Mike Douglas

“Back when skiing was just furry boots and malt cider and like kind of FIS bullshit, these guys stepped up, they turned it around, they took it backwards.”

“And that’s what made them rad.”

“A guy once told me that anything less than 20 years old is just news, it’s not history. And it’s been 20 years now since the TenEighty came out so… I guess we’ll see.” — Mike Douglas

“I sense snowboard coming really big two years ago like all new tricks I was like fuck man – should I change for snow board but, like I said in my mind – ah fuck there is something to do with skiing. There’s not because we got pole that we can’t grab so… last year I started to do flip like mistys and rodeo and I think skiings awesome and we can kick snowboards ass easily.” — JF Cusson

“Skiing was pretty much dead in the 90s, snowboarding was taking off.” — Jonny Moseley

“Skiing was your parents sport. Nobody — No one young with energy or that was cool was getting into skiing.” — Mike Douglas

“And the New Canadian Air Force came along and they invented twin tip skis … and that just like set it off.” — Jonny Moseley

Ian Ruhter – American Dream

[VimeeeeeeeeO] <— 214,000

The American Dream video is based on the fear of success, this thought is extremely powerful, fear has the ability to cripple us from pursuing our dreams. The moment I embraced my dreams it was as if the universe had drawn people to help us and share their stories. Our goal is to tell the stories of the people who live in America.

“If that one little idea is in your head that’s saying I can’t do it … that’s disability right there.”
– Oscar Ricardo Loreto Jr. – @oskervoid

“It’s just like the old way of doing things … just barter and trade.”

The Golden Power Hour


[YouTubeUlar] <— 303

8 years ago we went on a mission in Golden, Colorado … a mission to accomplish as many activities in 1 hour as we possibly could. Welcome to the Golden Power Hour. This video is unique because you can’t do this anymore … you can’t visit Golden Bowl anymore … you can’t buy Apple computers at the Colorado School of Mines Bookstore anymore and you certainly can’t visit the original Tequila’s anymore :( Hell, you can’t even shoot standard definition 4×3 video anymore and upload it to YouTube in 360p. Fortunately, since 1873 the Coors Brewery Tour has been a staple in the ever changing Golden community and they still offer you free 3 samples of Cold Coors Banquets every day. Cheers, Happy Holidays, Let’s grab a beer!

Blacker than Black Magic

This post is a straight reminder of when these cleaning solution selling pieces of awesomeness showed up on my front doorstep back in 2008.
Video 1 (carpet stain)
Video 2 (grill cleaning)

I’m going to be quick like nestle.
They get whiter than my elbows without lotion.
Stevie Wonder says seeing is believing.
I got a disease called enthusiasm.
I’m gonna cut to the mustard.
Wax on wax off like Mr. Miyagi.
That’s why we can’t sell it to criminals.
My mom says if it’s darker than me, and doesn’t pay the bills… it shouldn’t be there right.
You know what HBO means? Help a Brother Out.
Look – you just go back and forth like an argument.
Now I’m not Jesus, but look how I split that like Moses did the Red Sea.
Paint me green, call me a pickle.
That one bottle last longer than my last relationship.
You all got water right? High five, you qualify to use it.
Now this is my last demo, and I’m outta your hair quicker than shampoo.
Would you throw it out, shout it out, get OJ to stab it out, get Mike Tyson to bit it out, Kobe Bryant to…
It was a multiple choice funny joke.
You know you can’t put bleach on colors right.
This is safe on colors, that’s why we can’t sell it to Sammy Sosa.
This right here takes out ink, blood, coffee stains, grass stains, kool-aid, lipstick, gum.
What’s the hardest thing to clean?
Would it be carpet, tile, bbq grill, shower doors, that oil and rust in the driveway that’s blacker than my mother but not as beautiful?
Can I put this on YouTube? Yes ma’am.
What are you selling? Personality. But this sells itself though.
This is called Advantage the Wonder Cleaner.
Best thing since cake and ice cream.
Now unlike madonna, it’s never been touched.
I’m pretty sure windex and bleach never knocked on your door.

More Snow Less Hate

Colorado is experiencing some insanely long summers around here … it’s time to express how we feel. More Snow, Less Hate. Props to these Steamboat standouts for finally expressing their concerns of grabbing that snow by the balls.

9/11 Amanda Capper National Anthem

[YouTubeUlar] <— 464

4am 9/11 Remembrance Media … Remember that time we Capper’d Salt Lake City on the 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Wow – I watched this on repeat for an hour tonight thinking about awesome things we have done with the power of friendship. When good people and friends come together, we can accomplish some pretty amazing and emotional things. Brian Gold Show Goldrich, thanks for having the power of microphones and believing in a random idea to do something good like this for the pure awesomeness of our country. The fact we were able to quiet down Festival Village at the Dew Tour (one of the noisiest environments of all time) to pull this stunt off without anyone knowing … equals pure “I Love America” kind of joy. Capper Capper Fish, I think the Denver Broncos are going to need some love this year. Hmmmm, would you change anything if you were in front of 75,000 of our orange and blue fans?

High Fives to High Fives Foundation

High Fives Foundation Blackbox Case

Making Awesomeness for the 2nd Annual High Fives Foundation Colorado Golf Tournament

Blackbox Case lasered up some awesomeness for the High Fives Foundation 2nd Annual Colorado Golf Tournament this past week! Pictured above is a 15″ Natural Bamboo Wood Case for and Apple MacBook Pro Retina, a 13″ Carbonized Apple MacBook Pro Retina Case in the middle, and a 12″ Natty MacBook Bamboo Blackbox Case on the bottom. As a team, we shot 20 under par at the super elevated Copper Creek Golf Course and only finished in 4th place overall … which didn’t result in any awards coming our way, but that doesn’t matter because it was all for a good cause and technically we made all the awards!

Blackbox Case is looking forward to releasing a High Fives Foundation + Blackbox Case partnership in the very near future, so you can get your own hands on a High Fives branded Blackbox Case while supporting such an amazing cause! If you take a minute or 10 to watch and learn about the awesome work Roy Tuscany and High Fives does with mountain sports inspired athletes, you will completely understand why we love their mission so much.

Just watch High Fives’ newly released video and go full screen on this masterpiece:

Get Your Rubik’s Cube On

Get on the Rubik’s Cube movement … it’s slowly happening again thanks to some new magic shows and Americas Got Talent, Steven Brundage.

This kid Collin Burns is the real deal, and really freak’n fast. Obviously he is the current world record holder. On the magic side of things though, follow this story.

Damn – Waco isn’t so WACO Anymore – BSR Cable Park


[YouTubeUlar] <— 131,651

Wow, what can I say. Last time I was in WACO, Texas – ummmm, isn’t that enough? Let’s just say none of this awesome BSR Cable Park shit existed. We had a hard time finding a bar open after 9pm and that’s no joke.

For $20 you can buy an all day pass to flip your meat on the Royal Flush water slide in front of other meat.  Bring your own booze, or don’t – seems like they just don’t care.  Which is what makes the BSR Cable Park in Waco, Texas awesome.

Apparently they were voted #1 wake park in 2013.  I can see why.  Here is some more info for you to chalk up.

Coleman Sweeney is a Genius Asshole


[YouTubeUlar] <— 791,573

Genius.

Are you a donor? Think about it.

“A year and a half in the making, the two-minute video – filmed by California-based production studio Furlined and featuring Thomas Jane, of the HBO series “Hung,” music written by Coldplay and a voiceover by actor Will Arnett – was posted on YouTube on Thursday with the goal of creating buzz and ultimately going viral, said David Fleming, CEO of Donate Life America.”
