I’m getting insanely excited for Jame’s Cameron’s new movie, Avatar. Why? Because I have a strange attraction to giant blue alien chicks that can shoot arrows and swing from vines. Wouldn’t it be so cool to bring a girl like that to the family reunion? “Grandma, Grandpa, this is Neytiri. Please don’t make any sudden movements, I don’t want her to accidentally spear you.” Awesome. On top of that, you could basically pick a fight with anybody you wanted. Who is going to mess with a chick that is 10 feet tall? Exactly. The Feed:
The North Face is suing a company, started by a 19 year old, that parodies the North Face Brand. The offending company: The South Butt. It’s motto? “Never stop relaxing.” Clever little bastard. Really North Face people? You’re threatened by someone that is basing his company on the lazy/stoner/couch potato market? Please tell me that you have better things to do before Christmas.
A look at the validity of “organic” wines in the market and the veracity of environmental claims made by wineries producing these wines. This one contains a good list of wines that are from more environmentally friendly companies. Pick a bottle up and support a good company or two.
AEG, the organizer of the Tour of California, is organizing a couple of Grand Fondos in Northern and Southern California in April. Grand Fondos are essentially large, competitive group rides that attract a low of old pro riders, amateurs and other cycling enthusiasts. The AEG fondos will follow some of the course sections from this year’s Tour of California. Check it out.Report back. Let me know if anyone tried to run Greg Lemond off the road.
A couple of good ski shots from this weekend, when the West got pummeled by snow. I think the one of the dude spraying his friends is my favorite. Good timing dude.
This one is kind of beyond the site’s focus, but it relates to Colorado so I’m posting it. Dan Hawkins is destroying CU’s football team. How? NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY FOR HIM. Great, another year of mediocrity. Thanks Hawk. I was at CU during the whole football sex scandal thing and this is almost worse. Why? Because Barnett was kind of a sleazy dude and you kind of knew the whole thing was true, so you dealt with it in your mind and moved on. With Hawkins it’s like a big, dumb kid took over one of those magnetic football team sets and keeps hitting the button and giggling at how the little pieces move around the board. He does things that keep making me pound my head against a wall and then reacts like everything is “fantastic!” It’s not fantastic you dumbass. Do us a favor and let one of your assistants run the team next year. Preferably not one related to you.
When Hawkins is putting you in a bad mood, close your eyes and dream of Gretchen Bleiler. Always cheers me up. I <3 you girl! See you this weekend. What? You want us to stay in bed all weekend? I’m on board baby. Whatever you want to do.
