Speedriding (Parachute Skiing)

0

This really is a crazy thing.  I’ve heard of heliskiing, that in itself isn’t crazy, but being taken to the top of an uncharted mountain in Alaska, and skiing down the impossible face of it with a parachute on your back while you navigate crevasses, 100 foot jumps, and the ever increasing threat of the … Continued

the WAREHOUSE

I don’t often post about the webcomics I follow, mostly it’s because I follow so few of them, or, the better ones have disappeared over the years.  Well, theWAREHOUSE, is one of the better ones I’ve followed for years, and it’s still around.  It doesn’t have long, over-arching story lines like some comics, but it does … Continued

No, I’m not doing a road trip into eastern Alaska, but reddit user MrDubeGuy097 did a road trip from the Washington/Canadian Border up to the town of Tok Alaska, zip code 99780.  He doesn’t say how long it took, but it’s probably a few dozen hours, clearly it’s spread out over a few different days. … Continued

Canada is Pretty Too

With all this talk about my trip to Alaska, and the build up I have for it so far, it’s hard to forget our neighbor to the north.  Also, me being a die hard American, it’s hard to even fathom that I’d recommend visiting another sovereign nation.  Well, when it’s free, and when it’s apart … Continued

Person Of Interest

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of CBS’ Person of Interest.  There are countless videos depicting the awesomness of the series.  Last week was the 4th season finale, it was amazing.  In fact, it probably could have served as a series finale if necessary, it wouldn’t nearly have closed all loops, but … Continued

PooPourri

I have no idea how old this commercial is, or how well the product, PooPourri, itself works, but the advertisement alone for it is worth watching.  This might be the only full length pre-roll video ad I have ever watched on YouTube.  I almost forgot about the music video I actually wanted to watch because … Continued
