post #61 of 175
And yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that....

Gosh. I get a lot done when the board is down.

Frozen, has the midget shown up yet?

I think Powdermag.com might be back - it just worked for me.

Hahah....funniest dung I have read on this site, I couldn't have put it better myself. Hopefully the 'gag value' of Steve's April Fool's play will fade by tomorrow...this is painful.

Next time he pulls that april fools on us, we're all gonna have hire ArmchairExtreme to go on over to his house in the middle of the night and slap him around a little.

I'm glad that some dentist from Connecticut has a place to go to debate the merits of the Expedition vs. the Canyonero, or whether you should get the X-Scream or the Axis-X to cruise the groomers at Okemo, plus the endless PMTS vs. PSIA debate. But that doesn't interest me. Hopefully you're just as glad that a bunch of hardcore skiing dirtbags (who take that word as a compliment) have somewhere to go to discuss the latest models of the LS-9000, twin-tipped fat skis, and which resorts let you camp out overnight in the parking lot.

oh bens, please... your accuracy is painful!


class warfare once again, eh bens? tell me, if I hide your daddy's credit card under the soap, will you be mad? c'mon ya little trustafarian! all these "dirtbags" who have a fat little trust fund to fall back on are no more the "soul" of skiing than are the ridiculous fat middle-aged orthodontist who drives to Squallywood in his Humvee, pulls out his Pilot 10s and pulls on his Bogner, sucks in his belly to zip up the Bogner (gawd bless that built-in girdle!), whistles some lame 70s disco as he trudges to the first chair, winks at the female liftie with a bizarre grin barely masking a leer, and rides the chair to the top of _______ (name your sketchiest fave) to pose atop as if ready to drop in at the drop of an owl's furball.

it's not all so black-and-white, bens

I am always looking for areas that will let me sleep in my rig in their parking lot

I commit myself to skiing with no hestitation, from Thanksgiving until mid-April. I don't give a rat's about "resorts" and the place "to be seen." I love skiing for its own sake.

and I'm not unlike most of the regulars in here.

ps if you want to know what drives me to ski, check with the PouterPhotogs who visited Lost Trail about 6 weeks ago. They took some pix of Monica Thomas. I ski with Monica when she's not teaching. She & I share a coach, who at 63 could out-ski a sizeable chunk of the Pouters.

back back back, dimestore che guevara!

Off the mark as usual, Gonz.

I've skiied with BenS. He may be a dirtbag and a shoprat, but he is no poser.
post #68 of 175
ruler, you missed too. aim again, here's your hint: that fat black solid circle that's encircled by the thin black ones.

my comparison was a caricature, in the same way bens tried to caricature EpicSki. I've been in Pouter, I know that you maggots call this forum GapicSki... oh the juvenilia, oh the humanity!

so come on (or is it "common"?) ruler, quit playing the role of ostrich.
post #69 of 175
I would realy love for harpo to speak to this as he has skiied with & met more folks from both places.

never understood the animosity.

also wish both places would remember the danger of assumption, but se la vie.

Here's my .02 on this topic and the "generalizations" being thrown around. I go to both boards and look around almost daily but don't post often. I think both boards have posters that are obviously di-hard skiers and know their stuff.

However, that being said, the posters at Powder are definitely on the more conceited side and if you aren't in the "clique", then you're not worthy. My generalization of that group is a bunch of long hairs who smoke weed as much as possible and like to challenge authority whenever possible. they love to bash cops when they get a ticket for doing 90 in a school zone and then bash ski patrol when they are speeding in a slow zone on the mountain. Nothing is ever their fault. It's always the EGO of the other guy that cause the problems.

But hey...I could be wrong since I don't know a single one of them...
post #73 of 175
Ah, they seem like nice enough dirtbags.

Funny thing is though, every "hardcore skiing dirtbag" I've ever seen can't ski to save their lives. And, since none of 'em are cute, well, let's just say they spend a lot of time waxing their skis.

That being said, I wonder if anyone of them want to show up and ski with a few us gapers?

I had to...

post #77 of 175
I read both forums when I have the time but mostly I read epic ski, if I think I have some info that might be of help to someone I post it as I do a lot of research.most of the bears in epic are helpfull & from the looks of it good people with a love of skiing.over at powder you know what to expect for the most part but alot of people over there are allso helpfull ect.I recognize alot of people who post in both.what I don't understand is for the most part when there is discourse at epic gonzo is allways in the middle of it either doubting someones ability or knowledge especially when they don't share his point of view.so he gets to ski a lot & has a great coach.coach ? is gonzo training for the olympics. I guess thats where his elitist attitude comes from but it wears thin on the rest of us & would seem to fit better at pouter as he calls it.and like someone else said with 2000 plus post here & whatever he post at powder it's a funny thing to call someone else a mouse jockey. just my .02 but this is something I have thought for a while. anyway happy skiing

I thought that everyone on the East Coast understood sarcasm... oh wait, you're on the Gulf Coast, which is full of blue-hairs, Bubbas and JaneySues. Yeah, I suppose you don't understand.

Woodsy's comment about 2000 posts means nothing. Zorro has nearly caught me in less than half the total time of membership. Besides, I think fast and type fast - so a post is finished probably as fast as you can spell supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

My job is not to make you or anyone else understand my personality - I don't discuss my personality on here. Actually, I would be surprised if more than 5 or so folks understood my brand of humor and mockery. You have to have a certain type of bizarre cultural reference library in your noggin, and a keen awareness of the difference between the obnoxious put-down pseudo-humor of Andrew "Dice" Clay (and his 60s predecessor, Don Rickles), and that of comic wizards Robin Williams and Denis Leary. I'm not in the wizards' league, not by a long shot, but I think people that understand such humor might understand me.

Example: who laughed when the guys head was blown apart in the car in "Pulp Fiction"? Of all the people I know, only I and a former co-worker (from Mobile AL so I know not all Gulf Coasters are cementheads) have found that scene funny.

Zed's dead, baby. :

have you checked your calendar for today's date?

pps to bteddy...

a coach typically helps with racing-oriented technique, and shows the student how he/she can improve -- on the coach's terms

a teacher helps more with what the student wants and doesn't usually see the same student every time

my coach is the only person who teaches me things on the snow. he's a skiing genius, a funny guy, extremely intelligent, a fantastic sense of humor, and just plain fun. but he won't work with anyone that isn't committed to good technique. and he's not there to help you look pretty to impress the snow bunnies.

why do I mention him so often? because he's helped me improve so much. and because I'm grateful to be among those he wants to work with. he asked me if I wanted to work with him. I didn't approach him. from what I know about him, that supposedly says something (indirectly) about my skiing.

but of course, I'm just a Gaper over here at GapicSki.

Only to the humorless. Reference those not operating with all cylinders, for an example. I wonder if everyone here is glad to have you deciding on propriety for them.
And I'm guessing Bumpskierx. Heh.

Oh, so you reserve that M.O. for yourself? Ridiculous.
Would it be OK if he backpedals now by a)claiming he was joking, or b) claiming that he was making a broad generalization which he believes to be true?
Hypocrisy abounds.
post #83 of 175
Gonzo, I'm growing impatient. Your original attack on a of the Powder guys when they came over while their board was down has been the ENTIRE source of all negative discussion while they have been here. I asked you to please respect that they are allowed to post here without being harassed.

Sooooo, why have you not dropped it? Why are you the only member of EpicSki pounding a war drum? Why are you the only one at EpicSki who even cares? Drop me a PM if you want to discuss, otherwise stop all hostile attacks; and since you have already pushed this too far, don't even engage in civil rationalizations of your animosity -- just drop it. Thanks.

Your post was simply a jumping point, even though I understood the humor.

not one of Devo's better songs musically, but a good one lyrically. Musically, I prefer "Q: Are We Not Men" and "Duty Now for the Future"

but I'm just a Gaper and a Geezer.
post #86 of 175
Hardcore Devo-tees gravitate toward the "Oh No, It's Devo!" album, with the unforgettable "Peekaboo." Did anyone see that tour (think it was 1985)? It was a total multimedia extravaganza, and very innovative for the time (so compelling that no one cared that they lip-synched the whole show)!
