MSP is not affiliated with NS right? well, through whistler maybe, but would whistler get pissed?
if this TBC-MSP controversy is descovered to be true, would it be cool to establish a sticky informing the NS community?
i'm sorry, but i just can't stand back and take teh ruthless business tactics of MSP to go on unaffronted. if we can at least eliminate the NS portion of MSP's business maybe we can have some affect on teh industry. MSP killing TBC is bullshit, especailyl killing TBC because of sponsor representation in the movie. TBC was the best ski movie i've seen, in terms of style, originality editing, all coming together for one movie. we cannot allow the ruthless corporte business nature to invade skiing, or else the ski film (or skiing) will never evolve to teh point that snowboarding has. the corporate nature of MSP invites cookie-cutter sameness of videos, mostly aimed at teh "pop-culture" orf skiing, skiers who aren't core skiers: weekenders, old-fartbags, warren miller.
if we can create a sticky, we can inform a decent portion of the skiing population, which might have some effect MSP sales, and thus their future sponsor ship and eliminate this sort of thing from ever happenign again. if it does nothing, so be it, but at least we tried.
