Skating in Bend is About to Get Better. Maybe.

Posted By on Thu, Mar 21, 2013 at 1:52 PM

For nearly a decade the skate community has been looking for a replacement for "Pondy" or Ponderosa Skatepark, which is, by all accounts, an antiquated and run-down community skate zone in Southeast Bend.

Now that Bend's skate community has, finally, gathered enough momentum and found a willing partner in Bend Park & Recreation District, it seems Bend could be home to a rad new park as early as fall of this year. Together the two groups are drafting a design for a NEW skatepark at Ponderosa, which should help fill the skate void in Bend. Add your two cents at the upcoming design meeting from 4-8pm on April 17 at the BPRD District Office.

This is the news story I'm working on for next week. So far I've been reminded of two things: 1. Bend's skate community is often overshadowed by Bend's other action/outdoor sports; 2. skating is an incredibly impressive, athletic pursuit (and is way cooler than mountain biking—see below). In between reporting on this story, I've been logging some serious YouTube time watching old skate comps, Thrasher videos and pool sessions. Man, skating is awesome.
The clip below is a commemoration of Portland's Burnside Skatepark, now more than 20 years old, which exists under the Burnside bridge and started as a skate community DIY project. The city officially sanctioned the park years after it was created.

A Conversation with 12 Year Old Self

Posted By on Wed, Jan 23, 2013 at 2:21 PM

Wouldn't you like to be able to talk to yourself in 20 years? Or maybe talk to yourself 20 years ago? Well this man has done just that... kind of... After creating a video of himself, at age 12, asking his future self some questions, he hides the tape away for 20 years. At age 32 he re-opens the cassette and addresses all his 12 year old self's questions. The result is both entertaining and nostalgic. Check it out!

Best Music Documentary Trailer

Posted By on Wed, Dec 19, 2012 at 1:00 PM

Better than anything in the theater right now
  • Better than anything in the theater right now

It's no secret— I named the Jay Reatard retrospective Better Than Something the best music documentary of 2012. If you need some reasons why you should watch it, you can certainly read my review.

But if you're a visual learner, here's the trailer. It's available to rent on Amazon VOD for a mere $3.99. I think you know what you have to do.

Christmas Lights Go Gangnam

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 7:00 AM

Stringing up enough holiday lights to illuminate an entire block has become standard practice. Apparently, so too has syncing your lights to music.

First there was the "Amazing Grace" House:

And last year we had this dubstep Christmas house:

Now, we've got Christmas "Gangnam Style":

Ashton Kutcher Gets in on Beard & Moustache Championships

Posted on Sat, Dec 1, 2012 at 8:32 AM

Remember when back in November (it's December now!) we posted photos from this year's National Beard and Moustache Championships? This year the facial-hair showdown was in Vegas and, once again, our events company, Lay It Out, was there making it all happen.

ANYWAY.
We just came across this ASHTON KUTCHER-produced video on the Beards comp. Apparently, as of this summer, Kutcher has a bi-monthly YouTube channel called Thrash Lab, a "a destination for rich visuals, narrative entertainment and high end cultural content."
Despite the Kutcher star-power, the channel isn't exactly blowing up.

BUT it did create this beautiful inside-look at the National Beard and Moustache Championships!
**Note: Portland is represented twice in the first 30 seconds. Not surprising.

So I've seen, like, 10 different friends post this on Facebook over the last couple of days. It's a beautiful and exciting-looking new mountain sports movie from Sherpas Cinema, makers of the awesome snowriding film All.I.Can.
This one is called Into The Mind and it looks neat.

Your Monday Laugh: Bike angst VIDEO

The cycling community sounds off. Hilarious!

Posted By on Mon, Apr 9, 2012 at 9:20 PM

Sometimes profanity is the only way to get the message across (please excuse the language: adults, apply earmuffs to the ears of your chillins').

Also, this video would be perfect for this week's Green Issue. Check out newsstands on Wednesday, April 11 as we get into all things green.

In the mean time, we're sure all you bike commuters will find that this video touches on some of the finer points of cycling road rage.
