This Cameraman Cleaned his Lens at the Wrong Moment

If you're going to send it big, it's generally a good idea to be sure things are dialed in with the cameraman. Especially if you’re going to huck something as massive as Jonathan Jean did on his snowmobile.

Rightfully hooting and hollering after clearing such terrifying gap, Jean finds the rest of his crew a little less celebratory. Their awkward silence is broken with the shout of what no professional athlete wants to hear: “Nobody shot it”.

Ouch. That probably hurt more for the Canadian than if he had actually ate it on the landing. Not to fear, watch as the snowmobiler courageously takes one for the team, and hits the jump once again. This time with the cameraman actually behind lens instead of cleaning it. 

PLEASE no more oil burnin’, noise making,  pollution generating, assholes riding snow mobiles in the back country.  This is crap.

Mountain In The Hallway Last summer in my fight against cancer and pursuit of climbing the Grand Teton, I was forced to confront the disappointing reality of life’s challenges. During this period of time I realized that my reaction to tragic events may very well be the only thing I have control of. Would I allow myself to become defeated and depressed or attempt to find a greater meaning in my defeat?  This poem is my attempt at the latter. It’s a reminder that my goals are simply a

Watch: Freerunning+Venice = The Coolest Thing You’ll See Today

Oh, Amore. It’s remarkable, the things that love will make you do. For freerunner Pavel Petkuns, that means leaping over bridges, balancing on gondolas, and traversing the rooftops of Venice just to be reunited with his love.
