I start my first blog with mixed feelings, part of me is excited by the prospect of being able to have my deepest thoughts lie on the front page. However, another part of me hopes this isnt the stumble that will send me down the long slipery slope of internet communication. Dont get me wrong newschoolers has been a large, and beneficial part of my life for some time now. My fear is that me sitting inside on one of the first days of summer vacation bumping beats and sitting at the computer will soon replace hot girls and the outside world. I will put these fears behind me for the time being and procede to create a blog that will hoefully be fairly intertaining and unique.
Summer in the ski world seems to be when the ones who are lucky enough ski and the others stayed glued to the computer and watch footy. Much of this footy comes from ski crews across the counrty who are releasing their trailers for the years movies. I was able to catch up with some of the riders from New Intelegent Group to talk about their upcoming movie, "Memo".

My time speaking with A dog was interesting but i felt that i needed a better idea of what New Intel was all about so i went to the main filmer and editer Evan williams.
VTski24 (9:32:43 PM): New Intel was started late last season after vermont open. Jeff Kiesel came up with the idea of making a company out of all of our footage and crew so that seemed like a legit idea. It kinda took off from there. Everybody was into the new name "New Intelligent Group". A dawg wanted it to be called new Intelligent GANG but that didnt fly. New Intelligent GROUP seemed to flow better haha. We went to Mt. Hood last summer and got some real legit footage. We made an edit and everybody seemed to like it a lot so it gave us the idea of making a full length movie. I wanted to make it very similar to the Mt. Hood Shenanigans edit because of the fun vibe and over feel of the edit. Were not really a serious film company in a sense that we dont make our edits feel like the normal "intense" edit.
VTski24 (9:32:49 PM): im still going
VTski24 (9:33:11 PM): haha
VTski24 (9:37:38 PM): Were just a fun group of kids out there trying to make a dope movie for the public. After a fairly good winter, we managed to get a lot of dope footage. Our upcoming 2007 Mt. Hood trip should add to the arsinal of footage we already got this season. Lots of kids will be going including Ryan Williams, Evan Williams (myself), Ian Durkin, Joe Tyson, Kohl Schoening, Derek Spong, and a few more. Were looking forward to the trip a lot. "Memo", our movie will be coming out next fall. Were gonna try to keep the price low and affordabe so that more people can enjoy what we have been working on this year.
VTski24 (9:37:40 PM): wow
VTski24 (9:37:41 PM): hahaha
VTski24 (9:38:10 PM): thats just a general overview of the company*
VTski24 (9:38:13 PM): add that
joety316 (9:38:20 PM): well done
joety316 (9:38:31 PM): ok were going to change gears and do some brief questions
joety316 (9:38:42 PM): whats the skier you respect the most
VTski24 (9:38:45 PM): hahahahaha
VTski24 (9:40:56 PM): Well, this is a tough question. Im gonna have to go with showernig on this one. Kohls a kid outta Woodinville, Washington whos progressed a TON over the years. Kids blowin up.
joety316 (9:41:19 PM): ok cool whats the worst aspect of skiing right now
VTski24 (9:44:15 PM): hmmm, the concern of every kid to get "spancerized" and get free gear. Ski for the fun of it (like team pup n' sudz) and you get sponced sooner or later if you do well in comps and such and get recognized.
joety316 (9:44:39 PM): ohh deep
VTski24 (9:44:41 PM): hahahaha
VTski24 (9:44:41 PM): word

For my next blog i talked to a girl who dosnt go on newschoolers and is just now learning how to ski. many may see her as insignifigant to the freestyle ski world but with her interest in the culture of freestyle skiing combined with her having an outside view on freestyle skiing it was actually pretty interesting. And if none of this apeals to you well shes a teenage girl which i asume for a majority of Newschoolers is as rare as a unicorn.
