Great viral video campaign

I found this campaign this morning, and it’s nearly making me late to leave for work. It’s a fantastic use of video to push a corporate product — one that I would otherwise never have paid attention to. Will It Blend? showcases a number of uses for Blendtec’s commercial-grade blenders. These include making smoothies out of coke and half a chicken, blending a wooden rake handle, and making a tasty McDonald’s treat that probably isn’t surprising when it comes out so smooth.

Returning from Baldface Lodge

I just returned from my annual snowcat skiing trip in British Columbia. The snow was insane. Chi-Chi was able to join us this year at Baldface, hanging out on the snowcat, hiking, and relaxing at the lodge. I met a fantastic group of skiers and snowboarders from New York, Connecticut, California, and Hawaii.

I have posted some photos and video from the trip for your enjoyment… or maybe just mine.

Last weekend I took my favorite jetBlue flight from New York to Denver over the weekend. I got two days of skiing in at Copper Mountain and Vail. One of the guys along with me was Josh, who displayed some incredible balls in trying to throw a 360 from a small lip that we found in the trees.

Oktoberfest Videos from Breckenridge

When I lived in Summit County, I attended the annual Oktoberfest party in Breckenridge. It’s a time honored tradition of German heritage, oompah music, and drinking large quantities of beer from mugs the size of your head.

Two years ago, there was one of those inflatable games where two people get strapped to large bungee cords and race down a track. Technically, I think it was there for the kids, but two of my buddies got into it after having a few rounds, and… well, the results were really enjoyable. Two of the races are linked below:

Chris is racing on the left, and Will is on the right.
