Keep your eyes peeled for a remix of Erik Bailey's IWAC section.
It'll be online pretty soon!
Still March 31st
March 31st Vol.2
Mikey P. and some NC homies sent out 5 tapes of footage. I've been logging the clips when I can find time. Looks like a promising edit will be in the works here reaaal soon!
I'm uploading random photos off of my digital camera from last weeks trip. Toasted Berry is the holder of the real photos, some of those will be up soon on the blog...some have to be saved!
Nicholas Swan Fort Boise edit will be on vimeo at some point tonight, it's in line right now.

Stay hood, bitches.
After the snow came rain, after the rain came sunshine! Typical Boise weather. So the precipitation left some pretty big puddles at Fort Boise but that actually ended up being a good thing. EBills and Swanson got a night session going and got enough solid footage for the edit Nick has been wanting to put out for Rollerblade. I'll be chopping it up and putting it online within the next few days. The puddles are an added bonus in coolness and difficulty!
As for me, I sent about 10 minutes of raw footage to Brazillionaire. He's putting together a Razors Podcast of my skating. Hoping that'll be up soon, too!
Stay tuned, breh.
Long-time NDN, Nicholas Swan will be in town today. I'm looking out the window now and it's snowing...but I'm sure we'll come up with something.
E.Bailey takes 1st at Barn Burner X during our blading trip!
Good trip full of clips, photos, homies, booze, mountain-bikes-thrown-threw-windows, thrifting, and yomen fuckmen.
Stay tuned for some photos.
In a few days we'll be heading out on a filming/contest trip. Blading a few states and gettin' some work done. Ty, Bailey, Bill, and T.Berry will be cruising in the VW. Joey Taormina will be departing from America's hat to collaborate with us. All the while we'll be filming for THE NEW VIDEO FROM THE NDN and the shock video as well.
Phil Davidson is back in the game, he got his first clip since the accident this weekend.
Copies of IWAC sold quick at BCSD this weekend. Thanks to the shops and to E.Bailey for slangin'!
Congrats to Haffey on a well-deserved victory.
May 4th, Jay. May 4th.

SEE YOU GUYS TONIGHT!
premiere is the day after tomorrow, wahoo!
"it's crazy how many people from oregon, utah and all over idaho are reserving rooms for your premiere" - holiday inn peeps.
I have the first batch of dvd's back from the duplicator. Looking goooood. Blu-Ray's are also in-hand.
A week from tomorrow is the release date and boise premiere!
i'd suggest bringing some swimming gear whether or not you're in the pool/hot tub while the video is playing...because i'm sure there will be some fun in the water afterwards. plus the hot tub can make your whiskey that much stronger.
DVD's are at the duplicator!!!
L.E. Blu-Rays are also being duplicated.
Master copy DVD is complete.
Also, this has just been decided.
Limited edition BLU-RAY copies of I Was A Cloud will be available.
For those of you getting a room at the Holiday Inn:
Apparently some of the employees don't know about the hot discount that's being cut to the NDN's.
When you reserve your room, ask for Christy and let her know that you're coming to Erik Bill's video premiere. She'll take $30 or whatever off of the room.
So far so good with the new trailer!!
Thanks for the support.
Check out these links for more info about the video.
And to those of you planning on getting a room at the Holiday Inn premiere location: A few groups of people have told me that they reserved their rooms and got a good deal by saying they were with the NDN party. 25 bucks off or something.
WBJ is letting me host the trailer through his Vimeo Plus account since I've never got around to going Plus.
I know better than to promise the new trailer will be up sometime tonight...but it's looking like that should be the case.
Nov.10th Round 2.
Vimeo: you'll bitterly regret what you're doing tonight.
I'm sorry to everyone trying to watch the trailer. Vimeo is undergoing maintenance and isn't accepting uploads. It'll be up asap!
The second trailer will be up this evening along with an Erik Bill & Friends interview. See it first on www.stabyourselfintheface.com
Be sure to spread the word about the trailer!!!
I plan on celebrating by treating myself to a couple hours of Modern Warfare 2.
Disdained is my gamertag, ps3. Watch yourself, you'll get okie-doked.
Nov.10th almost i think
Trailer is done, we just had the trailer premiere, dope!
WBJ saves the day.
Topsoul drop to square rail front nugen 450 out...Bailey ftw.
Only some of you knew that the flyer was a 3-piece set!
Take your pick, take them all, get them on the web and print them out!!!!
Shops have started pre-ordering the video, for Dealer Inquiries contact Erik Bill at email@example.com
All of you that are attending the Boise premiere: Save a couple bones on the DVD. $15 at the premiere, $18 at the shops and everywhere else.
copy it, paste it, print it, add it as a photo on your facebook, blogs, vimeo, myspace whatever.
spread the word!
Some of the SLC dudes made it out to Vegas for the World Finals.
Here are some downsized photos that Beastmaster took in Vegas. They filmed clips too, duh.
Been editing more and more as the days progress, still going well.
People asked me how Dan did while he was in town, I told them about how he laced tricks on a weird, tall square handrail and got lines in the 30 degree weather. Then I explained how he hurt his shoulder and had to catch an early flight home. The common response was "Wait...Dan gets hurt?"
Dude's a tank!
Cover art and flyers are nearly done.
Dan Dickerson is flying over for some last minute arctic-blading.
Happy Halloween ya'll.
I was recently given a book that is pretty interesting, it mostly covers the poisons/treatments that early pioneering indians (NDN's) encountered. I assume that the reason it's worded so strangely is the translation that took place at one point.
FOR OBSTRUCTED MENSTRUATION: TAKE 3 PARTS OF THE FEMALE FLOWERS, COMMONLY FOUND BY THE SIDE OF PONDS, LEAF DEEP GREEN SHAPEN LIKE THE COWSLIP, FLOWERS OF A BRIGHT YELLOW, THIS CERTAINLY IS ONE OF THE FIRST HERBS IN THE WORLD FOR FEMALES. TWO PARTS OF UNKUM, FOUND IN SWAMPS. ONE PART OF INDIAN PINK, BOIL THEM IN FAIR WATER TILL THE STRENGTH IS ALL OUT, THEN STRAIN AND ADD TO THIS AS MUCH PORT WINE OR GOOD MADEIRA, AS WILL KEEP IT FROM SOURING. DRINK 3 FULL WINE GLASSES OF THIS A DAY. IF THE BOWELS ARE COSTIVE, USE A LITTLE SYRUP OF ELECAMPANE, AND I WARRANT YOU A SPEEDY CURE.
Yep, but on a lighter note...editing is coming along nicely.
Flyers (online/physical) coming soon...i hope everyone is down to help spread the word for I WAS A CLOUD's release!
Last week of filming ahhhhhhh!!!
Just kidding, not that hectic...everyone's pretty taken care of as far as footage goes.
Couple sections are finished up and looking priiiiiiime.
If anyone is sending footage over, try to send it quickly enough for it to arrive Friday, since Saturday is a holiday and mail doesn't deliver on Sundays.
Word up, stay tuned.
P.S. - Soundtrack is fire.
Frodo pulled through with iPhone photos.
Peeping the footage.
Cameron and Geoff going to handle business.
Cameron after his business-handeling.
Random launch, Billy films well.
Mid-sesh see-saw br-eak, du-de.
I'm fatter than Cameron and Ty's fatter than Frodo.
Idaho heavyweights all over Utah.
Oct. 19th Vol.2
Siiiiick new ledge spot about 30 minutes away from my house.
Bailey held it down hard.
Received 3 discs of footage in the mail over the past few days, thanks to everyone who is contributing!!! Time to log the clippers.
Some good footage stacking up in the last month of filming!
Less than 2 weeks left.
Currently, all of the schools in Boise are undergoing one of two types of construction:
1. being blown up by dynamite and being relocated and built anew.
2. being completely renovated.
Both of those have been leading to plenty of new spots, the latter being a bit better because some of the brand new schools are building all their ledges and rails pre-capped.
ELMORE COVNTY COVRTHOVSE.
Mega-murder Shreddy Kreuger tomorrow.
Time for business.
Only a few days until Cameron and Frodo get to town!
Cameron is going to wrap up the filming for his section, and Frodo is going to stack up some more clips for the montage.
The NDN party is this Friday.
Phil just called and he's home doing good. The main thing bothering him is the wait/anticipation for the Norco.
I'm actually uploading the clip for those who want to see it...it's absolutely disgusting... http://www.vimeo.com/user353346
Phil's doing better (still at the hospital).
It looks like a lot of the bleeding was because he cut his ear really bad when it hit the corner of the stair, we thought all that blood was inside his head and coming out of his ear...so in this situation, a sliced up ear isn't so bad. that's not saying that there isn't any internal bleeding, because i don't know that yet.
Hopefully the tests go smoothly and he'll be able to leave the hospital today and be able to go chill at home.
logged on really quick to ask everyone to give their wishes to phil davidson.
he was backsliding a rail to gap today, he slid out and ended up smacking his head on the bottom stair. that lead to a ceisure and there was quite a bit of blood on the ground when we lifted his head up. the ambulance quickly brought him to the e.r. and we all went as well. keep him in your thoughts.
Just finished logging 2 tapes-worth of footage.
Lots of hot fire yesterday!
Several posse's heading into town today to film.
A couple text messages that I received this morning:
Vegas Chris - "We're on the road."
Chris Olpin - "After final review we are on our way"
Dan Dickerson - "I get to be the little spoon."
Only 1 month left to film for "I Was A Cloud"!
Time to start banging out the enders.
Lots of heavy-hitters coming to town over the next few weeks to get in on the rest of the filming.
Met up with the "Shred Til' Your Dead" tour bright and early today at the Sun Valley parks about 2 hours from Boise.
I filmed a couple things but left most of it to Ivan, of course, because they're putting together a full video (it will be sick)to capture the whole tour. Haffey did the highest 900 ever.
www.shredtilyouredead.com/blog - check it out.
Haffey was killing it, Bailey was killing it, BSmith was killing it...everyone was doing their thing.
Boise blading and spot renovating in the a.m.
A new photo.
Erik - Topsoul.
The Boise premiere for I Was A Cloud is Saturday, December 5th.
That gives you plenty of time to schedule it in.
It'll be THE premiere to go to, it's at the Holiday Inn right near the airport (not the holiday inn express). As I listed below, it's got a 15 foot screen with a full-sized pool and hot tub in front of it. It's also got the seating outside of that of course, but if you want to chill in the water, bring the suiting suit! There's also a bar for before/after the video that's right around the corner from the screen. I'd imagine that it'll start at about 8 p.m. The people working the front desk can direct you towards the premiere party. For those of you who are outside of Boise, the hotel will be offering discount prices on their (sick) rooms for the occasion. This hotel is about a 3 minute drive from my house, so you'll be close to the blading/after party (one of them) and all that.
The room will be dimly lit. They'll be moving in a lot more seating, there's tons of room behind the spot this photo was taken, and they're bringing in a table for DVD sales.
Final words for the night: a few shots of whiskey will be a lot more potent when you hop in the hot tub right after. PEACE!
I just left a meeting regaurding the video premiere.
The Boise premiere will most likely be on Saturday the 5th of December. Possibly Saturday the 12th.
I haven't decided just yet on a venue, but I'm sort of leaning towards a certain location that has:
1. A bar.
2. A restaurant.
3. A hot tub and pool that you can chill in while you watch the video.
4. A 15 foot screen.
5. A bar.
Thursday Night Skate is tonight, see you Boise heads there!
Yesterday was pretty eventful as far as clip-stacking goes!
Brand new mellow kinked rails in town, both Erik B's took advantage of that.
Then after E.Bailey proceeded to get clips elsewhere, we decided to go to a pool that has been lost to rollerblading for about 10 years. Bunch of us were working towards getting all the water, algae, newts, toads, and tumbleweeds out of it...once we were getting somewhat close...the owner of the property rolls up to the middle of the woods and gives us the boot.
Weak...but we'll be back.
Happy birthday, Fetus.
SHOCK (take that as a bit of foreshadowing for a couple months down the road)
Also, Eli St.Germaine is getting married today!
Congrats to Eli and Allison, see you guys in a couple hours.
I'll be best manning it with my samurai bun.
Tomorrow morning is the time to cop clips, hit me up if you're wanting to try and get in on that. 9:00 a.m. blading.
Over 3,000 views on the trailer in a little over 24 hours.
Pretty good for a blading video!
Thanks for the support!
I WAS A CLOUD - TRAILER 1
help spread the word!!!
Joe has sent both of our roles of 8mm film to get prepped. Sick.
Also, there may be a few trailer ideas being worked on right now?!
How much cum can a gay man hold?
- a buttload.
...But that's beside the point. Dan Dickerson is in town, he handeled some serious business yesterday. Olpin called 45 times in referance to sending clips over, that's good. Ty landed a trick that he's been wanting to do for about 3 years. Off to the lake, skating when I get back. Hit me up if you're trying to join!
Photos by Toasted Berry unless otherwise specified.
Due to lack of control on my blogging; you may have to click the photo to get the idea...hahaha!
