Tonight I will be done

Friday, no sleep.
Saturday, no sleep.
Sunday, slept between 7-11.30 and then from 23-7.
Monday, no sleep.
Tuesday, slept 6 hours...

I feel that I need to get healthy soon...

This can´t be good.

Good thing it´s halloween tonight and then I´m going to Chicago to get wasted for two nights.
Only to fly back to LA on saturday for some more liver damage.

Mammoth opens their slopes right after that too... another excuse to party.

Pretty safe to say I´m not running a marathon any time soon.

Yeah, been there.
Me on Hjalles couch.
Me and Lance Armstrong have nothing in common.

Ballerina cookie anyone?

If I had a dollar

for every time I thought I was "almost" done with this movie I could buy at least 100 tacos at Jack In The Box (they have a special now by the way, 2 tacos for 99 cents).

But in nine hours I´m going to LA to master this bitch and then I´m going to Chicago for two days to watch the one premier we have left, I also plan on drinking mojitos for the next weeks. For breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The swedes left this morning. I´m pretty sure they had a fun trip. I worked a lot, but still managed to go to a few fun parties and have some Taco Bell.

Here are some pics and a press release from DC that got posted last week.


(Oct 23, 2007) Subaru Rally Team USA driver Ken Block and his Monster Energy Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car have landed on the cover of the December issue of Snowboarder Magazine , hitting newsstands this week. The cover shot features Block getting airborne in his Subaru at New Zealand's Snow Park Resort with DC Shoes pro-snowboarder Torstein Hargmo flying alongside the car on his snowboard.

Block, an avid snowboarder and co-founder of DC Shoes, recently brought his Subaru to the snowboard park at New Zealand's Snow Park Resort to join the DC Snowboard Team for a multi-day session that combined filming, snowboarding, and driving for a unique experience captured for DC's second full-length snowboarding video, Mtn.Lab 1.5. Along with the cover shot there is a multi-page feature full of photos from the session and a double sided pull-out poster featuring two more photos of Block's rally car catching air in the park.

Block had the impetus for hitting the snow with his Subaru rally car after successfully jumping it 171 ft. for the Discovery Channel show Stunt Junkies late in 2006. After several attempts to set up a snow jump in the USA, the opportunity came together in New Zealand and Ken Block joined the DC Snowboard team as they filmed at Snow Park Resort in New Zealand's South Island.

"After I completed the Stunt Junkies jump last winter, I started kicking around the idea of trying a jump out on the snow," explained Block. "I've been a snowboarder for a long time and have loved driving in the snow since I first got behind the wheel. It was always a dream of mine to take a rally car to a ski resort and really see what I could do with it. I started talking with Mtn.Lab 1.5 Director Pierre Wikberg and some of the guys from the DC Snow Team and we decided to film it for the snow video and see what would come out of the idea."

Block and the team of DC snowboarders filmed together in the Snow Park Resort's main park on several obstacles and the crew built a 55ft tow-in kicker on flat ground to create a unique playground for the rally car and snowboarders alike. Block towed the snowboarders into several park obstacles behind his Monster Energy Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car which was equipped with spiked ice tires from BFGoodrich Tires. Block then successfully jumped his car over 70 feet, with the snowboarders jumping beside him, creating epic photo sequences, one of which is featured on the cover of Snowboarder Magazine.

"All in all I'm really stoked on how well it went," said Ken. "In all the experiences I've ever had, it truly was one of the most fun things I've ever done."

Video of the entire rally car/snowboarder session will be featured in DC's Mtn.Lab 1.5 set to release on DVD early November 2007. Additional video clips will also appear in Travis Pastrana's next DVD, Nitro Circus 5 'Thrillbillies', which will release in late November 2007.

The fires are a bit more mellow now.. + Jake Brown X Games slam.

So I´m like so close to done with the movie. I´ve had technical problems for a few days...

The fires are calming down a little and the temp is not 90 degrees anymore. It´s back to the normal 70´s now.

I sent my swedish friends Linus and Joel to LA for a few days since the smoke was pretty bad here.

They even have their own baby sitter. The GPS. My parents nick names my GPS "Ulla-Bella" a few years ago. For those swedes out there who watched Solstollarna in the 80´s might understand the name.

Here´s a clip of Jake Brown from X-Games this summer:

Still burning..

But the air is a little better now where I´m at.

Only a few days left until I´m a free man.

Fire is getting close...

Here are some google maps of my area.

I´m in the highlighted area..

My boss´house is only 1 mile (1.6 km) from the fire. I´m sure I know more people who are affected.

It better not come close to me!

San Diego is burning

It´s dark outside of my house. It looks like a scene from Apocalypse Now or something. Just all orange, dust on the ground and smells really bad.

I heard there are blue skies a few miles north of me, but here it looks pretty bad.

250.000 people have evacuated already. A lot of the freeways here are closed. I´m sure people are panicing.
So maybe I should go get some guns and ammo + a gas mask like everyone else.

Ok.. back to work..

Movie is pretty much done. This is what it looks like:

No trip for me

I guess I´m not going to Sacto for the premier.

So I´m back to making my eyes bleed for a few more days and probably re editing some parts due to music right issues. With my luck I´m sure I´ll get prostatic cancer before next week too.

I want a new car.

Countach, Delorean, Caddy DTS, VW Phaeton, Lincoln Town Car or another Lincoln Aviator are all considered.

Movie Premier "DC MTN LAB 1.5"

I´m almost done..

We had a small-ish premier in Encinitas last night for the DC employees and other snowboard industry people.

It wasn´t a very polished version of the movie, but it got the job done.

I guess the response was good.

Here are some screen shots.

I got a little drunk and feel relived that the movie is almost done.

Going to Sacramento tomorrow for another premier.
We´re not really having any premiers here in southern California so this could be the only one I go to.

Almost there...

Here´s the press release:,21214,1670046,00.html

My food habit theses days = 10 diet sodas a day and one or two microwave meals).
18 hours again in front of the computer screen.. This is like the 14th day straight. My eyes gave me a headache and they are red. Probably not the smartest thing since I had lasik two weeks ago.

I just unpacked half my stuff from New Zealand and my room looks like, fuck I dont´t know, like hell I guess.

Where did the summer go?

I have no memory of this last week. Been in the same chair since saturday. I do remember friday though. I loved friday.

All swedes in southern California loved last friday.

I´m going on a long trip when I´m done. Who wants to come?

Bali, Japan, Sweden, San Fran, Vancouver, Cabo, Kauai?.. I`m there.

Hopefully the next post will be a little happier.

I´m getting some friends to come over from Skellefte though. That will be nice.

A quick million, the american way.

Why would you sue Apple for lowering the price on one of their products?

A New York woman is so angry at Apple Inc. for lopping $200 off the price of the iPhone that she's filed a lawsuit seeking $1 million in damages.

pple lowered the iPhone's price on Sept. 5 and also said it would stop selling the $499 4-gigabyte model. Hundreds of early customers who paid full price didn't expect a reduction so soon and complained.

Apple issued an apology the next day. Under its return policy, Apple refunded the $200 difference for those who bought the phone within 14 days of the reduction. And in a move to make peace with those who purchased the higher-priced phone before that period, the company offered a $100 credit at Apple stores.

Full strory:

In swedish news:
Dongmei Li från Queens i New York köpte en Iphone med fyra gigabyte i juli i år för 499 dollar. När Apple senare sänkte priset på den nyare versionen med åtta gigabyte från 599 till 399 dollar skapade det ramaskrin bland de kunder som köpt till det högre priset.
Men en som fortfarande inte är nöjd är Dongmei Li som hade köpt en Iphone med bara fyra megabytes. Hon menar att även hon hade drabbats av prissänkningen på den senare modellen. Eftersom det nu går att köpa en bättre version för 399 dollar kan hon inte längre sälja sin Iphone med vinst.

Hela skiten:

So yeah. Should I sure Apple too because I bought an ipod 2 weeks before the touch ipod came out?

I say sue those dumbass consumers for even thinking about sueing. Put them on the streets. Fucking morons.

Ok, back to work.

Picture This

I´ve been editing a lot. Check out my fingers.

It´s crunch time now. So many loose ends now... I hope to be done soon, real soon.

Damn, it´s tuesday night and I just realized that I missed Prison Break yesterday... lame.

I did watch the The Star Wars / Family Guy episode though. Oh my lord! Funniest shit ever. So good.

Went skating for an hour the other day too. It was fun. It´s been like a year since I tried to flip my board.
I can´t believe I haven´t surfed or skated this summer. I´m such an idiot.

Hopefully the teaser song will get approved soon... I´m also keeping my fingers crossed for some of the songs in the movie. I have a few that are pending.. this shit takes forever.

The ulcer is growing..

Me, Jake and some DC boarders. Going over their tweaks.
