SURFACE SKI COLLABORATION JOURNAL CONTEST:

- NOTEBOOKS NOT NINTENDOS -

http://www.newschoolers.com/web/content/news/news_id/1189/

JOURNALS ARE IN, HAVE BEEN READ AND WE HAVE CHOSEN OUR WINNER FOR THIS YEAR’S  CONTEST. THE WINNER IS FRASER MCCALLUM OF OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA. HIS  JOURNAL #11 CAME TO US THIS SPRNIG OVERFLOWING WITH GOOD CONTENT, PHOTOS AND A LOT OF HEART. FRASER IS 16 YEARS OLD.

AS YOU CAN SEE IN SOME OF THE PHOTOS, THE JOURNAL WAS FULL OF PHOTOS, LINE DRAWINGS, DAY-TO-DAY ENTRIES AND AN EXTRA SPECIAL BONUS SECTION FROM HIS FRIEND MR. PAUL TRAFFORD WHO PREFERS REALLY SUPER BRIGHT PAPER. I FOUND YOUR WRITINGS VERY INTERESTING PAUL AND WOULD LIKE IT IF YOU WOULD SEND ME THINGS LIKE THAT PERIODICALLY. ENOUGH ABOUT PAUL THOUGH, FRASER IS THE CHAMPION HERE, HOWEVER, FRASER ASKIED ME TO GIVE PAUL A SHOUT OUT AND A THANK YOU MENTION ON THIS RELEASE.

I WAS HAPPY TO SEE THAT FRASER IS MUCH MORE INTERESTED IN THINGS OUTSIDE OF SKIING. PHOTOGRAPHY, FAMILY, MUSIC AND FRIENDS SEEM LIKE MORE OF A PRIORITY TO FRASER THAN BEING COOL SKI GUY. I LIKE THAT. FRASER ALSO SKATES HIS CANADIAN ASS OF TOO. OLLIES AND STUFF. SPEAKING OF OLLIES, IT APPEARS TO ME THAT HE ENJOYS HOPPING GARBAGE CANS AND MISC. ITEMS ON HIS SKIS TOO. (I LIKE THOSE PHOTOS)

SOME PEOPLE THAT INSPIRE FRASER, OR AS HE PUT IT, HIS “HEROES” ARE AS FOLLOW: DANIEL JOHNSTON, ERIC POLLARD, STEPHEN COLBERT, JON STEWART, ANTHONY BORONOWSKI, BLAKE NYMAN, SPENCER KRUG, CONOR OBERST, ED TEMPLETON AND MORE…ALL GREAT CHOICES BY THE WAY.

I COULD GO ON AND ON ABOUT THIS JOURNAL BUT I REALIZE THAT 95% OF YOU HAVE A.D.D. AND QUIT READING AFTER THE FIRST PARAGRAPH. JUST KNOW THIS, FRASER MCCALLUM HAS A GOOD LIFE, GOOD FAMILY AND LOVES TO SKI, SKATE, PAINT FUNNY WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS AND SHOOT SOME COOL PHOTOS FROM TME TO TIME.

AND FOR TAKING THE ENTIRE YEAR TO COMPLETE THIS JOURNAL PROPERLY, FRASER DOES NOT NEED TO WORRY ABOUT BUYING SKIS OR STREETWEAR THIS YEAR. WE ARE PROVIDING HIM WITH SKIS OF HIS CHOICE AND A WHOLE BUNCH OF SURFACE CLOTHING TOO. NOT TOO BAD.

TO FINISH THIS CONTEST OFF, I WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU WHO SENT JOURNALS IN. THERE WERE SOME TRULY GREAT STORIES TO BE TOLD AND IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE FOR ME TO READ THEM.

STAY TUNED FOR NEXT YEARS CONTEST, “PHOTOS NOT FIREARMS”
