He now has his studio/label/store up and running with all the Julian Snow Index recordings and lots more new stuff from Portland and abroad.

Dear Friends! Finally got another post up here. Been lazy and busy I guess. Due to the recent bout of early spring - the Snomad bandwagon came to a screeching halt. We did get in some good shooting at Meadows and Bachelor - of the spring skiing variety. But many resorts closed - again! Then just when you thought it was over - blammo! Mother nature is finally giving it to us like she should have been all winter. Well... a taster anyways. Might be time to go search out some face shots on Monday. Hoodoo may be closed for the winter - but there is no easier place to hike and get some.

Beyond the world of snow and such. I just discovered the joys of - "rants & raves" section. Where have I been? Oh my goodness. In the spirit of Pounder's sarcastic, biting commentary - there are posts on there that literally had me laughing until my stomach hurt. Laughing has got to be one of the best things for the spirit and soul. I highly recommend visiting your nearest craigslist site and locating the rants and raves section under personals. There are some particularly funny bastards in Portland. I also found this link which made me laugh pretty hard too. hilarious

Your boy ETK loves the music - in many forms, styles and contexts. Recently we convinced a friend and former Volcano writer, Pounder, to get himself a blog. Low and behold - here it is - and with much laughter and appreciation, I hereby adopt "Judson's" music rating system as standard inclusion on all recent music listen lists found on this site and others. (5 being best, 1 worst)

1. Soft Machine - Third (3.2)
2. Rush - Permanent Waves (5.0)
3. Hi Fi Killers - Hi Fi Killers (3.4)
4. Scorpions - In Trance (3.4)
5. Secret Chiefs Trio - Eyes of Flesh (live)(4.0)
6. Boards of Canada - Geodaddi (3.8)
7. Estradasphere - Buck Fever (3.5)
8. Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon (5.0)
9. Frank Zappa - Weasels Ripped My Flesh (4.3)
10. Critters Buggin' - Bumpa (4.1)


Alright then. We are hours away from departing on the largest of the Snomad road endeavors thus far. Friday afternoon and Saturday afternoon we're knocking out a camera gig shooting college basketball at the Evergreen State College in Washington. After the finish you'll find the Snoburban eating up a clump of I-5, then vast stretches of the formidable I-84. Sometime on Sunday we plan to arrive and prepare to shoot Brighton and Snowbird in Utah. At the end of the week we'll be pointing her due west for a long overdue dose of Lake Tahoe. Kirkwood and Heavenly will be the destinations, friend Eric D's pad in South Lake will be the base for several more days. After this I'm sure a "backroads way" home to Oregon will be in order with plenty of pics and vids to come!

Holy Nino Batman! Where did our Winter go? Should we blame yet another El Nino system on the French? Damn straight - those sneaky bastards. Why do you think the Rainbow Warrior Greenpeace ship was so adamant on exposing those French f****? Because they were secretly testing nuclear weapons underwater in French Polynesia - wiping out miles and miles of valuable coral reefs. Many people theorize that the sheer numbers of these "tests" have had a direct effect on sea surface temperatures that are measured along this same current where El Nino systems are born. Additionally - for those who didn't know - back in 1985 Greenpeace figured it out and were about to launch the Rainbow Warrior from it's port in Auckland, NZ and expose the greasy bastards and their careless testing. The night before, two French secret-service types went scuba style in the harbor and planted a bomb on the ship - which later exploded and killed several activists. Greenpeace. Turns out, a local NZ cop figured it out and made the arrests - only to have the French Government bail them out - and set them free. Pretty fucked up. Needless to say - Kiwis don't hold much regard for the French... and I am beginning to wonder myself. Don't even get me started about the smarmy group of Frenchies we ran into on the gondola in Saas Fee - foofy French f****!

A little glimpse into a fine New Year's Eve spent in Ashland, Oregon. Thanks to Pounder for the hospitality. Watch out for those illegal lasers this year! All kinds of trouble.
