I've seperated what I'm about to say into a seperate post from the one I just made because it's a more negative post...
Quote: From myself
So here is what I have to say.... Let's make a deal Bushwacker. I see your shot at 42 seconds in your video from Stowe that you posted (the one called "epic spring conditions"). Leave that video up, I am willing to make a one shot video matching your style and ability on a similar run. If what you say is true, I should completely fail to match your ability level in your style of skiing. The poeple on this forum can be the judge of whether or not I successfully match it. Give me time to make the video though the resort I'm at needs more snow. I haven't dared to go in the moguls yet due to rocks. I'm going to wait.
But here's the deal, I am not going to do this unless you also agree to make a video matching my style and ability level in the moguls. Since you're such a great skier, this shouldn't be any trouble for you at all... especially since your very style that you currently ski with dictates that you are a better skier than me... right? I prefer it if you post first so that I don't end up posting one without a video response from you, I have already wasted too much time on this rediculous argument. Here is a video with shots I'd like for you to match, do so and I will match your style and ability in it: http://www.youtube.com/user/Blakera4848 There is a good shot for you to match at 2:50, 3:21, 4:46 you'll get the idea. Make sure you video on similar terrain if you agree to this.
The people on this forum can be the judge of who matches who's style and ability level in that style accurately.
I've changed my mind about wanting to video myself imitating Bushwacker's skiing and having him in return video himself imitating my skiing. This is because I have decided that I don't think I want to keep posting here. If we were to do that idea we would need to wait a few weeks for snow and I want to quit posting here sooner than that... today, actually. The reason I have decided to leave is this... After pouring my heart and soul into skiing for 28 years, listening to someone as conceited and ignorant as Bushwacker is, saying the things that he says, is a pill I am not willing to swallow. Bushwacker is apparently an inescapable part of this forum, so I am going to leave.
It shouldn't matter anyway if we don't do the videos that I had the idea for. Anyone who is not stupid when it comes to skiing would know what the outcome of the videos would be anyway (I would succeed in imitating Bushwacker, but he would fail to successfully imitate me, no matter what he says). And the other people who are either stupid or conceited, or whatever will not change their minds no matter what the videos look like.... so what is the point? No minds would change. I see now that there is no point.
Listening to Bushwacker literally makes me feel nauseaus. The idea of making a video to prove who the better skier is also makes me feel nauseaus, even though it was my idea... that's because I find it absurd that I should have to prove that to anyone, even him. When I say I feel nauseaus I mean it literally, that's what happens when you pour your heart and soul into something then listen to someone say this crap. So why am I going out of my way to contribute to a forum that makes me feel this way? It doesn't make much sense does it.
Most of the threads here I have really enjoyed and most of the arguments here, I have found hilarious. Most of the people I have met are cool. Anyone who was cool that ever wants to chat with me can message me on youtube. Bye.
