Animal Farm's where's waldo?

Brighton got a bunch more snow. Boring. While I'm holding out for more hardpacked park days I made up a new game with some stupid screen grabs of stupid powder snowboarding. Animal Farm's take on "where's waldo"? Seriously who would wanna board this stuff? I can't wait till the new park features are back up.

Can you find Tucker Andrews?

Where is Ben Farrell?

Brighton Sucks So Bad Right Now

For anyone who hasn't been up to Brighton the past two days...good thinking, it sucks. Seriously. Don't even bother for at least the next 5 days. Here are some screen grabs off my camera.

Matty Mo doesn't look like is having any fun. Probably regretting he came up to Brighton today.

Parker is only smiling because he is about to leave.

Ben grabs his board while jumping off some frozen granular machine groomed packed powder surface conditions

Showemus Update

Here's a little Showemus update for ya. Over here at animal farm we haven't just been bloggin' we've been loggin' to back it up.

Opting for a euro carve instead of sliding the rail.

Ben is so high profile now in the snowboard world he often tries to hide from cameras. I mean people are leavin' comments on youtube videos and stuff about how he's blowin' up. It's legit.

Up in Ogden the other day we revisited an ole' classic. Ben Farrell doesn't take too kindly to little things gettin' in his way of getting a clip. What's his solution?

I don't even know.

Ben L.: Alright did you have any other questions?
Younghee: umm
Younghee: like dogfunk,
Younghee: there is a lot of stuff
Younghee: so is that stuff is real?
Younghee: i mean its not fake,
Ben L.: Yes they are all real items.
Ben L.: Dogfunk is a real business that sells real items.

Torrey has the sickest tinas

Animal Farm is for lovers and scholars?

Another good day at work.

wyatt: hi, i recently recieved a email from you guys that said "you could help me with ANY question wheather its gear, prices or just trying to figure out the meaning of life" so i need help with writing my paper on daoism for global heritage, this isnt a joke, im finishing my last freebank of the day, and i have untill 2:15 to print up & hand in my paper to my teacher, the assignment was to creat an imaginary school pamflit about a school that teaches daoism, it needs a sloor plan, a mission statement, and a set of rules, any help would be greatly appretiated, and this is my last resort, think you could help me out?
wyatt: freebank*
wyatt: i mean
wyatt: freeband
Ben L.: Unfortunately writing papers and taking tests that are set to rules is why I did not attend college.
Ben L.: But let's see what we can do.
wyatt: thanks a lot man
Ben L.: You have nothing started?
wyatt: i started the floorplan
Ben L.: Ok.
Ben L.: First of all give me the exact definition of daoism you are working with.
wyatt: daoism is a way of living where you follow you own "dao" which is your journey, and you do whatever makes you happiest, as long as it is not intrfearing with anyone elses "dao"
wyatt: that all i have to work with
Ben L.: Well that sounds just great.
Ben L.: Who doesn't want that.
wyatt: ya man, thats what i was thinkin
Ben L.: All you gotta do is write up a school plan that can budget for multiple teachers per classroom that can specifically focus on different groups of students with in the classroom allowing the kids to explain themselves and grow upon their own feelings and wants.
Ben L.: Now kids are a bit too young to fully grasp this idea but with a little guidance, and I say guidance not teaching they may have their feelings directed in a more positive and useful way for their own life and others.
Ben L.: So basically these kids will be taught the basic facts of math, reading, writing, science etc. but they will also have a large portion of their day dedicated to developing ideas for a healthy life that is fitting to the individual.
wyatt: wow man, thantks a lot
Ben L.: No problem, does that help a little?
wyatt: ya it helps a lot
Ben L.: Sweet now get that written up, get it in on time and get yourself an A.
wyatt: kk, see ya man
Ben L.: Have a good one.

The nighttime is the right time

Josh nighttime from Sean Lucey on Vimeo.

for Josh to get wicked.


Our good ole' friend from the farm, Noah, just arrived in town today. Noah lived in Salt Lake last year back when the Farm was more of just a small experiment with a couple of goats, cows and crops. Now he tends to his studies back in Syracuse, NY. Although he is no longer in Salt Lake, one thing doesn't change...Noah is one of my favorite snowboarders in the whole wide world.

The other week when I was back in New York Noah and I went to Holiday Valley NY to meet up with some friends and do some boardings. Pat Morgan hooked it up with some tickets and we had an awesome day of launching snow making mounds. Check it out...
