    Go Fund My fuck up.

    ‘Mr.’ Butter is sitting in his rocking chair in Kelowna, complaining about the price of bread and why the kids don’t call anymore. My friends call me Pee...

    Go Fund My fuck up.

    I am so sick of seeing bubbleheaded titfuckers profit from no end of douchery on these fundraising sights. But, then I realized that I’m the idiot, for not profiting from other people’s emptyheaded kindheartedness.  So, I am starting my own campaign. I need to raise $263,427.81, to rip the...

    Is Trailer Sailing Dying

    More and more I’m thinking I see a Catalina 22 on a trailer in my future. My sailing goals are so much simpler now and I like the idea of keeping a boat in a different area each summer, instead of doing the same milk run every outing. I’d rather spend an entire season exploring the Thousand...

    Halifax Lodging

     Halifax’ downtown is tiny. You can walk anywhere in minutes. Or take a cab if you really think you have to. Most likely you’ll end up at the Liquor Dome at some point, watching the fights and wondering why everyone’s so crazy about donairs. Guaranteed diarrhea, those...

    What brands from the 70s/80s would you resurrect?

    I loved that set-up. How about those old Mahre brothers K2 ads?  S727’s and the Marker 40’s. Classick.

    Even smaller spectator numbers for olympic sailing

    Hey man, I geek out at all the esoteric stuff - summer and winter - too. Even the equestrian events and pole vaulting.  But shit like that doesn’t pay the bills and the fact that fewer cities are lining up to host these circuses because there’s no way to make their money back is proof that the...

    OMG! That’s a big, big rig! What a set-up. I wouldn’t have had the stones to try that. i was working at a ski shop around that time and got friendly with one of the ski reps, who sold me a pair of demo Fischer 223 RC4’s downhill racing skiis (the ones with the tips cut out) he had for pennies...

    Even smaller spectator numbers for olympic sailing

    Sailboat racing any kind makes for irrelevant, awkward, boring viewing for the majority of the population. It’s difficult to manage logistically - far from shore, need for sea room, etc. - hard to create a visceral sense of engagement or drama for the average viewer,  and low viewership numbers...

    What brands from the 70s/80s would you resurrect?

    Speaking of Warren Miller, anyone remember those monoski death traps from Europe that he featured for a few season? Both feet locked in, facing forward with a whole bunch of disco hip wiggling to turn? Seems like they were trying to make them take off over here. I remember a guy had one at...

    What brands from the 70s/80s would you resurrect?

    Yeah that’s what I’d meant. “Button” was a typo for Burton. I remember following the whole rise of the snowboard thing when it just started getting coverage. I think the first time I’d seen it was in a Warren Miller flick. That was likely a Snurfer. Warren Miller is another brand Id love to...

    What brands from the 70s/80s would you resurrect?

    Moguls got fucked-up and squared off and oblique from boarders - not closer together - because boarders scraped sideways through them, instead of making flowing, linked, round turns.

    Wasn’t the first snowboard the button one with the rope leash? That would have been around ‘79-81, I think...?

    Surgical tubing also worked well. Tie a knot in the back to make ‘em tight.  Croakies took awhile to get up here. Everything was always a few seasons/years delayed in making it to Canadian shelves in those days. I used to have to save up my allowance money to buy mailorder from skate & surf...

    Olin’s or Elans? I never could figure out which was which. Or, are they Harts maybe?  Where’s Wayne Wong when you really need him...?
