My friend Hampus broke his back...

He was about to jump and tweak at this one contest "Air&Style" in Munich but landed on a rock while riding in Italy... so lame.

I guess he´s on his way back to Sweden now.

He was semi lucky and should be back on his feet in a month.

Hoppas allt är förhållandevis ok Hampa. Jag fed exar över en dubble dubble, animal style från In&Out Burger

My good friend David has a new book out

You can buy it at Amazon

It´s about penis tricks.

Kind of a strange subject to make a book about but I
bet it´s going to be popular. Their website has A LOT of traffic.

Snowboarder Mag is in stores

Well, it´s been out for a few weeks here in the US (should be out in Sweden in a week or so).. anyway.. I have a couple of pages in it where I talk about
things that happened this past season. Pretty average reading really..

My boss has the cover from our NZ trip in september + there´s like posters and 4 other pics
in the magazine.

You should go get a copy.

I know I wrote about this a month or so ago, but the mag wasn´t out then.

Here´s the cover

Here is Eddie talking about the rally car jump. There´s a dumb commercial for like 10 sec before the real clip starts to play.
The embed version didn´t work... so here´s the url link:

Here´s a funny clip of Fredrik & Filip from swedish tv.

So I had turkey and stuff with my euro friends. It was good.

I´m working on some rally clips for my boss. Going ok.

When will I have some time off...?

Need to go for a walk now. It´s sunny...

Depressing...A euro used to be 0.83$, now it´s 1.48$ for a euro... great.

Can people please

realize that there are people who don´t have Dell, HP, Compaq and other weird brand computers?

I´ve been trying to see swedish sports over the internet for a few years now and 100% of all the "on demand"
sites are only compatible with pc´s... what the fuck?

90% of the people I know have Apple computers and I´m well aware of that that isn´t a very accurate picture of
the Apple vs pc users. But that´s how it´s been in my world for the past 6 years.

If we landed on the moon 40 years ago I should be able to pay to watch a game online without using a pc or microsoft explorer.

Other things that should be working are:

Credit cards on the toll road in Orange County.
Normal power outlets in cars.
Use of cellphones and wireless internet on planes.
All tv channels online.

When is "beaming" gonna come true? I mean Star Trek had it figured out a while ago.

Last week...

So I was planning on going on vacation and stuff... but no. The dvd needed some attention. So I flew to Seattle and then to Utah to fix it.

Then there was a premier in Orem Utah as well... so I stayed for that.

Grand Canyon

These party pics are from the day before my Seattle trip. I went out in San Diego with the three finns. They are fun company. We had a great night with lots of Mojitos and Long Island ice teas.

Notice the creepy dude with the smile who snuck into the photo.. like what the fuck?

We got back to my house (which is 30 min/70$) from San Diego at like 4 in the morning. I hadn´t packed my stuff for my Seattle-Utah trip yet and the shuttle was picking me up at 6.30...

The limo driver knocked on the door at 6.20 so I stood up (I was asleep on the couch) packed my stuff and took off to San Diego again.

I slept the short drive to the airport. And even though I was in good time I missed my flight!

I didn´t have an american i.d on me so they thought I was Al-Quaida... they searched my stuff for almost an hour. And my friend Todd texted me and laughed cause he was on the Seattle flight and said they were almost done boarding and that they´ve been calling my name in the speakers.... I made it to the gate, but they had closed the airplane door 10 sec before I got there... it was now 9 in the morning, next flight was at 6 in the evening.. which would get me to Seattle at 11 at night. I had to be in Salt Lake City around lunch the day after that! Awesome..

I talked my self into getting on the sold out 2.30 flight that afternoon since 6 wasn´t an option.
100$ later of course.
So what to do now? It was 9 in the morning and I was still drunk from the night before and I had slept very little. I didn´t feel like sleeping on the floor my the gate so I took a cab into SD to watch (sleep) a movie. But after going to two theaters in downtown that were closed I was feeling pretty sorry for myself. I had some mexi food and lots of water to wake up and went to the modern art museum.. it was also closed. Then I went to the train station to sleep. That lasted 20 sec. Some rent a cop told me to get my feet off the seats.
Arrrghh. Took a cab back to the airport. Went to security, this time it took 2 min to go through. I´m amazed with the inconsistency at airport security. I could write a short book about the things I´ve seen on the other side of the security checkpoint. I for one have had knives, leathermans and other illegal stuff in my carry on luggage.

The security dude who had searched through my bags a few hours prior came up to me and asked why I was back. I looked at him and said I missed my flight by 10 sec and that my friend in Seattle had to find a new best man for his wedding thanks to his lame ass decision to go through my stuff for an hour. He was too dumb to understand what I said.

So it was probably around 11 now. I laid down on the floor right next to the gate and slept until they boarded the plane. It must have looked pretty funny with a dude sleeping for three hours on the floor 20 feet away from the gate. Whatever.

Made it to Seattle. Cruised around the city for a min after I had checked into my hotel (Hotel Max, very recommended). Then I met up with Andy who was re-authoring the dvd for me. We went to get some salsa that you can only buy at Fred Meyer (food store) and then went to his house to oversee the final stages of the authoring. Then went well and he drove me back to my hotel after midnight.

I always check out the local free papers in new cities. This one had my friend Jon Olsson on the cover.. felt pretty strange to see him on there.
This house had a cement skatepark in their front yard!

Seattle / Tacoma airport from above
Slept really good and woke up to Andy calling me with the finished product on his way to my place. We had coffee (Seattle has sooooo many coffee places, I counted over a dozen Starbucks in four blocks) and then he drove me to the airport.

My friend Nick picked me up in SLC and we took the dvd/dlt master to a place who makes the glass master that the replicator then makes copies from.

We went to the Mtn Lab to pick up a car for me. Subaru is lending out some cars to DC for the year, so I drove off in a WRX STI rice rocket. That thing is soooooo fast. I couldn´t even hit the gears correct. It is stupid fast.
No snow at the Lab in mid november.. it was sunny and warm.

For the next few days I hung out with friends and tried to relax. But I wanted to make a teaser for the movie since the one I had worked on (and had leaked to youtube in some mysterious way) never got music clearance. Which was happening according do some people working for the band. They did get back with an offer, but they wanted so much money I was laughing. The music industry is strange.

But I never got into the zone to edit a new one with music we could license on short notice...

Some of the crowd at the premier. It was a smaller premier in the small mormon town of Orem. Still fun to go to.

Me and Nick at a photo art show / sushi bar / cocktail place. It was a great time.

Me and my Utah hostess / personal chef / Wii tennis competitor

My friend Chris had a sick Blunt t-shirt with Ingemar (Backman) on it. That day in late may of 1996 gave him like 10 magazine covers or something. And it was the start for my snowfilming career. This kid Stevie Bell (pro boarder for Forum) wondered why we were so hyped on the t-shirt. We gave him the 10 sec explanation, but he didn´t know who Ingemar was... haha. So sad

Flew back to OC with Eddie (who got a lighter on board for some reason, yeah security is air tight)

We landed in Irvine at like 4 in the afternoon. I then got a ride to some friends in San Clemente who were on their way towards my hood. But one of my finnish friends beat them to it. So I took of with him and his friends. Threw my stuff into my house, went to the bar. They got sick of the bar and wanted to go back up to OC (mellow 1 hour drive one way). So I tagged along. Went to a bar in Newport, went to the finns house, slept, went to a bbq and then got a ride back down to my house. It was one cray improvised day.

Now I´m just hangin in Cardiff. Watched a good movie today "Lars And The Girl".

I miss Sweden.. wish I could go back sooner, but there´s a lot of stuff to do here..

Might go to New York before that too, who knows...

Bye bye.

Film Premier in Orem, Utah on friday.

I´m in Salt Lake City, working on the teaser and trying to make sure the dvd get´s replicated.. should run like clockwork...

I guess Milo is having a DC Mtn Lab 1.5 premier in Orem on friday. So if you´re in the area you should try and go.
Don´t think there will be that many more premiers unfortunately.

Back to work..

I guess the fat lady hasn't sung yet.

So I thought I was done with the movie... no.

The dvd authoring didn't meet my standards.. so I have this dude in Seattle wrapping it up now. Flying up there tomorrow morning to make sure it gets done right.

Then I fly to Salt Lake City on monday to the replicator...

Then I need to make a new teaser, cause we never got the rights to the one I made 3.5 months ago...

Then... I need to start moving out of my house that I never moved into... still boxes everywhere.

Going out in San Diego tonight with some finns. Should be awesome.


Went and test drove this thing yesterday... not lame. Want to buy.

Mastering movie and Chicago premier

Long hours.. I dont recommend staying up for more than 24 hours.. You get kind of dizzy and dumb after that. Combine that with needing to be focused for another 8 hours..

I can eat panang curry and Thai ice tea every day.

Chicago views.

Warren Miller seems to make movies still... and they have ads all over the city for their premiers. I never understood who goes to these things.

The stupid museum closed at 4pm! I obviously showed up after that... what museum closes before a bank?
Holiday Inn, classy.
