Update on the holster

What happened to the radio?

what do you like better?


What happened to our rappers? Remember when Black Eyed Peas used to be good?

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Remember when you were 14 and you just coped that new 2Pac cd?

or that new Wu-Tang, or even the new Hot Boy$. Man have times changed for 14 year olds getting into rap. They are being exposed to this shit. At least it's not Puff Daddy. Things could be worse...

New Drake single has a video

Ladies get yo breasts checked

I love Neff

Mmmm backcountry...

High School pretty much wraps up my high school experience

...and playing hockey every night.

R.I.P. Guru of Gang Starr

fuck cancer. something's gotta come some day.

Killah Priest from Wu-Tang @ Club Absinthe

Killah Priest is playing in Hamilton on the 22nd. Can someone give me a ride there I will pay gas and get you in. I still cannot drive my car.

you know what it's like when they make your favorite pair of pants into snowpants?

wear em every day might as well wear em on the hill...

making gear to pass time

Recently made a holster for my snowboard. What use this will be. It's about 10 x 11 x 3.5cm. Velcro and snap close. will have an elastic that will velcrow to the back of my binding. Pretty pimp sauce.

B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray

I got the chance to check out this album before it comes out. B.o.B a "rap phenomenon" got signed while still in high school. I don't want to be a spoiler but it sounds a lot like this 'new rap'. You know skinny jeans & ray bands. At least there's no auto-tune. I'm going to give it a 3.5/5 because it was good but not mind blowing. Here's the first track off the album:

Throwback Wednesday

Every Wednesday I'm going to be reviewing albums that are older. Growing up in a small town I didn't get exposed to a lot of new music so I'm finding it now for myself.

Little Brother - The Minstrel Show. Little Brother consists of Phonte Big Pooh, & 9th Wonder. What an amazing trio of rappers to be on the same album. This is their 2nd album of 5 and what a banger it is. Super chillax beats and smooth lyrics. This is what rap should be. They just released an album yesterday but i haven't had the chance to listen to it yet. Let me know!

New Shad single!

my dream

My goal was to come out of surgery strong, have enough confidence to put down a deposit for camp of champions in May so I can ride in July. In my dreams this will happen, and I want them to come true. Pray for me!

happy 420


This is a late review but whatevs. This album is by Methodman, Raekwon and Ghostface, the 3 best members of Wu-Tang in my opinion. The album starts off strong with Criminology 2.5. When these 3 get together it's nothing but bangers. A must have for any Wu fan, for any rap fan for that matter.

Suite 420

Devin the Dude is back with another killer album Suite 420. He does what he does best: talk about weed. One of my favorite pass times. I highly reccomend this album if you love hip-hop that's not about swangin chains and fucking mad hoes, it's a mad chill album. It thumps but is not crazy over the top, I can't stop listening to it because of its chill beats and smooth rhymes. Becoming one of my favorite albums by Devin.


This is my car. My 3rd favorite thing to ride ;)

As you may know I just underwent spinal surgery to fix the herniated disc in my l4-l5. I cannot wait to be better and be able to do normal things again. I'd like to thank my girlfriend for helping me get through the roughest parts.
Thank you baby!

my first blog

I love snowboarding, my girlfriend, cars, tattoos, and sports. I will be talking about all these in my blog. It will mostly be about snowboarding and cars because I talk about them most.

These are what I want to pick up for next season. New bindings and mask. I'm really loving the wing on the highback and from what I've read it's supposed to be awesome for jibbing. Right up my ally!! Everyone knows I love sharks!
