Natalia Does it Again...CRB Late to the Party

Damn this girl has skills. We were told a few weeks ago to look for a vid, and as usual Tony beat us to the punch. Natalia has been on fire this year. Well not actually on fire cuz that would hurt and possibly effect her skiing.

Vid Day Monday

This is why you never loan your car to a women.

Let the angry emails

Vid Day Monday - Nerd Win

I have no idea what this guy is talking about, but he is the greatest nerd of the year. He out nerded the nerds that designed world of warcraft. I have never played the game and really have no idea how it even works, but the guys on stage make bank because of people like this red shirt dude. Nerd Win

And he was awesome enough that the other nerds of the internet have auto tuned his nerdy beat down of the world of warcraft creator guys.

Oh and if you want to be frightened just watch some of the videos that come up as suggestions once you start watching anything about world of warcraft.

Vid Day Monday - Vacation Style

Well after a bit of a hiatus from the pages of the CRB and a much needed vacay from all of this hard work*, we are back with all your Monday video needs.

*sleeping till noon

If you were not lucky enough to get to a nice warm climate and hit up the water for some Christmas swerve sessions then you can live vicariously through Thomas Moore who hit up the Turks and Caicos back in late 2009. Sweet camera angle as well.

Winter is for the LAMEZ

I love to get a new calendar. It means a new year, a fresh start (fresh start?? ain't that some bs), new oppurtunities...of wtf am I talking about. I love getting a new calendar because it means that we are one month closer to the end of the snowpocolyptic hell that is my state during the winter. This does not apply to all of the CRBers as those bastards live in warm states where their lakes did not freeze in early fall.



ODBF: /shakes off snow
ODBF: Man its cold out here
ODBF: /flips calendar from August to December

Boat: ***frozen in ice***

ODBF: OH DAMN...I knew I forgot something.
ODBF: That may be an issue

/Door Flies Open

***Moderator*** Life Jacket and Dig Dug have returned from the lake

Life Jacket: Man that was a sweet swerve set. Just gotta grab my board then its off to the beach to catch some sweet waves.

Dig Dug: /pumps air pump
Dig Dug: Someone needs to turn the A/C on in here. Its so hot.

ODBF: I hate you both with all the power of this blizzard
ODBF: I've gotta go shovel some snow

***Moderator***ODBF has slipped and fallen on the ice

CRB Minon:'ve got enough snow to shovel it??? You been holding out on me?
CRB Minon: /snorts line of coke

Rowboat Abides: GET OFF MY LAWN!!
Rowboat Abides: /fires shot gun

***Moderator***To hell with you guys, I'm out of here
Moderator: /bails
***CRB Chat Room has closed***

Vid Day Monday

Suck it Vikings!!

And why does it have an inflatable roof?

Vid Day Monday

It seems that the guys at University of Wisconsin Madison have way to much time on there hands. All they do is make ski movies. And crash into the jump on aborted jumps. Same thing I am told.

Lake Trout Carry Out - Bad Santa Edition

Hey!  Its December!  That means Christmas is almost here! Santa and presents and basketball and seeing your family and falling asleep on the couch!

Good times!  As we at the CRB prepare for Christmas we are probably going to have a shopping guide or a top-ten list or some other such nonsense.  Actually, don't count on any of that, we are if nothing else consistent in our inconsistency.  Like your moms gravy.

Anyways, here are a few of the things that we have talked about at the CRB compound today, including a story so god damn asinine that it will probably make you want to hug your local mall Santa.

  • "They're not going to take this house," says Ms. Campbell. "I intend to stay in this house and maintain it as my residence until I die." Which is ironic seeing as she hasn't paid a dime for it since 1985. (WSJ)
  • Man legally changes his name to "Captain Awesome", however, bank is not cool with his signature being an arrow, a smiley face and another arrow.  (SFgate)
  • Popular Santa is fired from Santa job because of telling a barely off-color joke to the parents of a kid who will grow up to be a pussy.  (SFgate)
  • An interesting look at the Christmas seasons most popular gadgets through time.  Transformers through iPads.  Never heard of a Tamogotchi, but, it has to be the cause of some seizures.  (Yahoo)
  • The Walking Dead on AMC broke all kinds of viewership records for its season finale.  Hey all you Mad Men fans yakking on and on about how great that show is, it just got curb stomped by a show about Zombies.  *takes axe to forhead*.  Ok Ok, sorry, sheesh.  Mad Men is great too.  *eats flesh* (AV Club)
  • Its getting near the end of the year, which means tons of year-end wrap up lists.  We are cool with any list of best albums that includes Neil Young, but, especially this year after he dropped Le Noise on our ungrateful ass's, allthough, it does have Kanye West at #1.  (Antiquiet)
To follow up on that Santa thing from before, read that damn article.  This dude has been doing this job for like 15 years, people all love him and people make the pilgramage to that specific location to see this guy.  Kids love him, parents love him and he takes what he is doing seriously.
Toomey - who stays in Oroville most summers and winters in San Francisco while he does the kiddie-on-the-knee gig - said he'd never had complaints before about the joke, which he saves for the occasional grown-up who visits him.

"When I ask the older people who sit on my lap if they've been good and they say, 'Yes,' I say, 'Gee, that's too bad,' " Toomey said Monday.

"Then, if they ask why Santa is so jolly, I joke that it's because I know where all the naughty boys and girls live."
That joke is so harmless that he may have well wrapped it in cotton balls.

How someone could possibly be offended by such a joke, and not just offended where you think, "well, maybe that wasn't the best place for that joke" but, offended enough to go and complain in a clear attempt to get this person fired is unconscionable.

If these peoples sensibilities were that fragile, they shouldn't wander through a Macy's anyways, there are bra's hanging on racks and pictures of models wearing varieties of undergarments that the majority of everyone in the world in their right mind understands.

Grown ups tell jokes, many of us tell incredibly obscene jokes, we do know the time and place for such things, but, such a simple joke is not a fireable offense.

Its just astonishing the knee jerk over-reaction by the parents, who were sitting on santa's lap btw (what are you six years old?), but that of Macy's as well, to totally disreagard the good will built up over 15 years, all the happy kids and happy parents and happy everyone, is stunning.

Hopefully this situation gets rectified and Macy's hires this dude back and makes a public apoligy that they over-reacted to a couple of dip-shits who I find it suprising even had kids as I am sure are probably offended by even the idea of putting his thingy going into her who-ha.  Oral probably scares them to death.  Must have been a great honeymoon.

Vid Day Monday - Get Get Naked

The University of Wisconsin at Madison ski team has put out some fun vids recently. This one has some solid footing and then it gets naked. There used to be a shirt sold at a local ski shop where I grew up that said "Real men do back deeps naked". Not so sure I agree on that but it appears that these cats do. Oh and it looks like they are doing them in 30 something degree weather. So they are probably no longer real men after hitting that water naked.

Vid Day Monday

The guys over at Trophy Lakes make some solid vids. Austin Able came on our radar when he went on and bitch slapped the slalom course and joined the select few that have gotten into 41 off at 36mph.

Vid Day Monday

This song hit me in a way most songs don't. I have sat here and watched/listened to it about 5 times so far. Just a solid tune that is well worth the few minutes it takes to get your CRB Vid Day Monday Youtube fix on.

CRB Brings the Sexy - Classy Edition

We are now slightly infatuated with Diana Krall. Not really sure why, probably has something to do with her being good looking then busting out a voice that is way lower then seems possible, and dusky voices just kinda do it for me.  Hey, Wiki..give us some background on this lady.
Diana Jean Krall, OC, OBC (born November 16, 1964) is a Canadian jazz pianist and singer, known for her contralto vocals.[2] She has sold more than 6 million albums in the US and over 15 million worldwide; altogether, she has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist during the 1990s and 2000s. On December 11, 2009, Billboard magazine named her the second Jazz artist of the 2000–2009 decade, establishing herself as one of the best-selling artists of her time. She is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debuting at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums.[3] To date, she has won three Grammy Awards and eight Juno Awards
The more you know.

French People Are Weird

Does this have anything to do with skiing? Not really, but the French Waterski Federation and the loss of their training lake are the talk of the skiflies right now. We have not been able to confirm if this story is true, mostly because we have not put any effort into verifying anything. Seriously our motto is "less accurate and therefore more delicious", would you expect us to follow up on anything?

Lake Trout Carry Out

Lake Trout Carry Out is what we are currently calling the random link heap/dump/thing/whatever.

Tumbulgum is perfect for a ski school...or to chew on.

Whitney McClintock was named Canada's female skier of the year. Well since she is damn good and its freaking cold up there 14 months out of the year (yes I said 14), I am still amazed how many crazy good skiers come from the frozen north.

And for more crazy canuck stories this guys are building a $5 million tubing hill by their wakeboard cable park.

Investor blog talking about skiing? Yep, and its got a great piece of advice for the big mouths that come out on the boat "No boat, no vote". Exactly, we don't drop all our dollas on that expensive thing just so we can hear you tell us what to do with it. Just keep your mouth shut and don't forget to bring the beer. The blog also says some stuff about investing, but I did not read it cuz I don't care what some dumb blogger thinks...bloggers are dumb...oh...shit.

Waterproof cameras are dope.

Rykert has good taste in christmas music.

3 Event Nationals will be going back to Wilmington in the state of corrupt governors and toll roads.

And Tony is keeping up his support of the CRB with these awesome vids from the Pan Ams. Thanks Tony!

Its to Dang Cold!

Enjoy this weather you hot piece of ass! Dispatch from the CRB weather desk Guess what???  ITS COLDER THEN A WELL DIGGERS ASS OUT THERE KIDS...
