A few quality videos for your viewing pleasure

Just in case you don’t have enough time-wasting crap to look at online already, I’d like to share a few rad videos and video series I’ve been checking out lately. Thank me later, you hopelessly bored desk jockey.

On The Road With Solitaire

“On The Road With Solitaire is a 12-part web series following Sweetgrass Productions in the making of their 2-year project, the South American backcountry ski and snowboarding film SOLITAIRE. For the summer of 2012, new episodes will be released every Thursday until July 26th.”

If you only have a few minutes to kill, be sure to check out freakishly weird Episode VII — Welcome to the Jungle. Good stuff!

Unbreakable: The Western States 100

“In 2010, four of the greatest undefeated mountain runners on earth toed the starting line at the Western States 100-mile endurance run, the oldest and most prestigious 100-mile foot race in the world. Unbreakable: The Western States 100 follows the four lead men on this amazing journey.”

I run 3 miles and I’m super proud of myself. These guys run 100 miles in gnarly mountainous conditions. Watch the trailer. If you’re a runner, you’ll get stoked.

Clif Bar: Meet the Moment

“You don’t plan Moments…they just happen. Be inspired to meet yours by watching Team CLIF Bar athletes climb at Smith Rock, ski Oregon backcountry, surf NorCal, mountain bike in the Santa Cruz redwoods, and more!”

Oldie but a goodie. I get fired up watching this one.

Brothers on the Run

“John and Eric Jackson, two professional snowboarders and brothers embark on the adventure of a lifetime by driving 15,000 miles from Alaska down to the southern tip of Chile on a journey to ride mountains on the top and bottom of the Americas and discover what’s in between.”

This is a great ongoing series not just about snowboarding, but about ambitious travel plans, adventure, big scenery, good friends, and good times.

  1. yea! thst was awesome!! GOt my heart racing and my blood pumping..I am definitely stoked! Wait… now what? its 3 am and I dunno what I am stoked for… damn…
    Good videos though..for real and yeah I already have enough timesuck crap but I took a time out and watched these cause I am that cool..I mean you are that cool.. right? right! I didn;t watch all of all of them…some of all of them.. so just to be clear.. and damn right you do;t plan moments.. I am contemplating a mental moment form this.. but I won;t plan it.. it will come to me when its time.. and with that I am going cause I could talk awhile here and uh… Im stoked so I gotta go DO SOMETHING ..:-)

    1. I think Meet the Moment gets me the most stoked out of all of ’em! What the hell are you doing up at 3 a.m.? Working on America’s next best novel or something?

      1. Well Ya!! What ELSE would I be doing up at 3 am? I got the first 15…….words so its coming along nicely. I liked the Meet the Moment one too. Very Cool Beans. Makes me think I should get out of my head more. although…in my head I can do all that stuff and feel pretty satisfied… nah.. sounds good though right?

      2. “Out of My Head, Satisfied in My Mind,” a novel by Lizzie Cracked.
        Helluva title, don’t you think? You need an agent? I’m your guy.

      3. That’s awesome! for real!… Ok..agent, you, I will keep that in mind and I took the Meet the moment video and made a mental moment out of it… so go..look now…this moment… thanks 🙂 (geesh I hope you don;t mind…i was on a deadline and didn;t have a moment to spare to ask…)

      4. Already beat you to it!

        Hey, I’m surprised you missed the Axl reference in my post. Thought you might be getting tired of the “Patience” bit, so I threw in “Welcome to the jungle” just for you.

Say what?
