  • “THE B” – Burton or Get Real – Transworld

  • sarah e.

    oh my gosh, i’ve been looking forward to seeing this film for so long! definetly a fan of isenseven’s “let’s go get lost.”

  • Courtney

    Pulse

  • Whoa whaaaaaat! I’m so stoked for this film too! That’s It That’s All was a game-changer, but favourite film would have to be New Kids On The Twock, a MDP tape that set my brain on fire when I was a kid. It was a much-passed around VHS bootleg amongst my older brother’s crew, and I would stay up late watching it every chance I got, a window into an exciting world that got me stoked on life.

  • Patrick Kadlik

    AFTERBANG

    Robot Food 4 Eva!

  • technical difficulties.

  • Andrew

    “LAME”

    Picture This

  • Ron K.

    The Resistance

  • Mikey

    Technical Difficulties!

  • First Descent. So good.

  • WHISKEY

  • Hands down “Transcendence.” By Absinthe Films in Switzerland. There is an epic scene that involves some serous shredding in a bunny suit, to the song “A Day in the Life” by The Beatles. A must see!

  • “Don’t Panic!” by isenseven.

    *please with sugar on top i want to win!*

  • full metal jacky

    That’s it, that’s all!

  • Even though I’m nowhere near vancouver I’d still like to share my favourite: ‘In Short’! <3

  • pourio

    that’s it that’s all

  • Am sure there a point where you see a snowboard in this film. So I pick Cool Runnings, John Candy films are legendary.

  • Sean VanderEnde

    Afterbangggg

  • Chris R

    New Kids on The Twock! (Chris Roach is Sooooo rad!)

  • Adam D

    Catch the Vapors & Optimistic are current favs. Cant wait for this, I’m missing the premier in NYC and i live in Philly!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Aakolowrat

    The whiskey series!!! Suckas!!

  • Technical Difficulties!

  • “Clear Cut” by Treetop Productions – whistler, 1999

    At first I used to just play a lot of parties or snowboard video premieres around town and then Brad McGregor (Tree Top filmer and co-producer) came to me one day in a panic. He was like,”We’ve only got a week to put the music for our new video together!” So we just had some late nights with lots of ‘safety meetings’ and I put together the soundtrack for Clear Cut”

    Insane Blades from TB10! — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TXU3RfIAOs

  • Derek Ellis

    “Love Hate”

  • Ty

    Let’s take it back, waaaay back!

    I’m gonna say, Riders On The Storm – because, for me, that’s where it all began. That opening scene where Shawn Farmer drops off that epic cliff as White Zombie rips in the background blew my 13 year old brain, and I guess you could say, it was all down hill after that.

    • Ty

      Woooo hoooo! Thanks man! I can hardly wait for Wednesday!

  • Shannon Rose

    “Flavour Country” because we live in the country of flavour!

  • RON B

    thats it thats all!

  • Wildcats! Still Bastards!

    • Adam Rabb Adam Rabb

      YES

  • Cam

    War

  • Lucas Hellwig

    it’s definitively “LAME”

  • Craig Paterson

    DC Mtn Lab gotta love the run they build through the house, and hula hoop snowboarding? Awesome!

  • Drew

    Volcom’s The Garden (of course ;)

  • Liz Kovics

    “SINNERS” – its about all about the snow and soul of the backcountry, nothing more and nothing less.

  • Everything by Pierre Wikberg was really great both filming and snowboardingwise. Afterbang was groundbreaking both riding wise and filming/editing wise, Lame was even better looking but for me I guess he peaked with Afterlame, he moved away from the typical concept of rider-part-video and mixed it up a little. I think I’d say that Afterlame is my favourite, awesome snowboarding, great soundtrack, fantastic cinematography and genious editing!

  • Megan

    LAME

  • Jordan

    MDP’s Picture This! is my fave! Art of Flight looks amazing though.

  • No doubt in my mind this movie raises the bar in terms of riding and cinematography in snowboarding. I haven’t been this stoked to see a shred flick since Eurogap 3. That was definitley a good one but my all time favourite is probably Trouble in Japan with the Analog crew

  • STU

    “Optimistic!” -Absinthe Films

  • Makaela

    That’s it, that’s all!!!!!

  • Jp Capes

    DECADE!!

  • Jessica Kestell

    Decade….blows my mind

  • Adam Rabb Adam Rabb

    CITY PARK CITY!!!!!!!! some super bad ass flow in that flic!

    I have been pumped up for this film now since last jan when i caught
    wind of this one. It smelled great.

    Thanks for Booooooom.

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
