  1. yeah its def expensive to develop film here, esp b&w which i like, but how goods the quality of the printed digital pics? i'm not really familiar with how many megapixals translate to an alright photo. i just know the digital prints i've gotten from people have been pretty crappy. i do really like seeing friends' online albums. but i just look once, then forget about it.
  2. i've got a big-ass canon eos55. takes great pics when i'm on holiday, but so bulky that i cant take it everywhere. i usually use disposable cameras for nights out or on the slopes. not great quality but dont have to worry about losing it or dropping it or whatever. I'm not so interested in digital still cameras- great for emailing to lots of people but it seems unless you have a webpage they just get looked at once and then forgotten. i like to show off pics by putting them up on the wall or in the loo or make reprints to give to people. digital video on the other hand is way
  3. oh wait maybe i was confused- is tracks the same place as smokin joes?
  4. yeah i had a lot of fun at tracks over new years. and at snowed inn a couple of years ago.
  5. i'm thinking about maybe trying london if i don't get into grad schools. would also love to live in france, but my french sucks.
  6. oh yeah i'll be there! riding happo on saturday and then boogie-ing down at the big party at club panorama sat night. the music's going til 6, so prolly wont ride sunday. i'd say if you take the overnight bus, you'll be too drained to enjoy the night. so rent a car if you can!
  7. Bill Gates is becoming a knight, but he won't be called "Sir" bc he's not a british citizen.
  8. there was lots of fresh snow on my doorstep this morning. hate going to work on days like this. but will be at noz again tomorrow.
  9. yeah but do you actually work hard during those 8 hours or slack off?? i usually take at least an hour or 2 a day just for sj and email. if dont have many classes or prep work to do, i can spend up to 6 hrs a day slacking off. man, my job is easy. but sooo boring!
  10. got the f22s and had an awesome day last saturday. my riding felt great- think the boots really made a difference. or at least i hope so, so it'll be like this from now on.
  11. had kappa sushi last night. i swear i go there about once a week. having quesadillas tonight
  12. kinda like scouser. i worked hard and partied harder. was good fun.
  13. i made guacamole for some students and they thought it was weird. i also get strange looks for eating raw carrots
  14. i wouldn't recommend getting a dvd one bc then you cant do any editing. theres always lots of crap you film that you want to cut out. i got an export e model last year. although it cost more, it has been nice to have the english manual and menu displays. had no problems figuring out how to do something new, like tape something from the tv. my camera's a sony- i think model number dcr-trv18 or something. i like it alot. the best part is the night vision. comes in handy a lot- really fun to film at parties or outside or wherever the light is dim. I'd recommend getting a hor
  15. quite of few of my jhs students have nova usagi erasers or stickers on the pencil case, etc. but when i ask them if they go to nova, they always say no.
  16. nozawa last saturday. new boots kicked ass, got sweet first runs on piste and off, didnt have any probs whatsoever in the pow for the first time. rode with a great group, had fun filming jumps. everything clicked and was golden
  17. kamoshika probably. they kinda look like a cross between pigs and cows. seen three already this year!
  18. if you really want to make some money you could be a hostess. shit job, but you get free snazzy meals.
  19. did anybody hear about the speech gore gave recently? he made a good point- "Instead of spending enormous sums of money on an unimaginative and retread effort to make a tiny portion of the Moon habitable for a handful of people, we should focus instead on a massive effort to ensure that the Earth is habitable for future generations." he also says this about bush- "While President Bush likes to project an image of strength and courage, the truth is that in the presence of his large financial contributors he is a moral coward – so weak that he seldom if ever says “No” to them on
  20. they are a real, but how real can a celeb fam be? havent seen that many episode, but its entertaining.
  21. going to noz tomorrow, dunno yet about sunday. maybe shiga?
  22. yeah it was a lot of fun. didnt get there til after 8, so missed some of it. but found plenty of sake, ran into nofakie and fattwins and a bunch of friends (other nagano jets). the fighting was crazy- some of the guys were getting bloody and sooty. i def recommend going next year if you have the chance. oh and it was snowing- todays prolly a great day on the mountain.
  23. i wear knees pads after a beginner day that resulted in a swelling the size of a tennis ball on my knee. also an ass pad- doesnt do much but nice on icy days.
