    Yes it is and it is sooooooo good. I will take some more clips if I ever get a minute free from work this week. I'll take you inside the tube, the bowl, the clover bowl, over to the expert side, and to some rails, etc...

    Corey is that the Millenium skate park? I have heard that it is an excelent facility. Looks pretty good from the movie.

    Joe Flaherty is one of the funniest humans, ever. Not sure why more people never got that. I can't even look at him without laughing. SCTV was filmed a few blocks from my house as s kid for a couple years and it was a HUGE influence on me and the way I see the world.

    It's just like standing on your kitchen floor. A little piece of your kitchen floor which is moving through space... It's just repetition like anything else. Anyhow any random 9 year old from the park can skate circles around me, I'm nothing compared to them...

    +28 eh? Hmmm, I can't that say I'm not jealous of that...

    Wow Corey - you have more guts than I do... And more talent on rolling wheels for that matter.

    That skate park looks pretty amazing. I see there was one other intrepid skater out there with you - minus 6, eh? Brrrrr. High of 28 here today.

    Windows Movie Maker [sk8 video tour]

    I notice MS gets ripped on a lot but I have to say this is a great little tool for basic video editing and dubbing http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/m...er/default.asp and there's even some cool add-ons there too. So I give MS a big thumbs up for this one, pretty cool stuff... Great transitions, efects, and titling purely from an "ease of use" standpoint. Definitely not a pro tool but a great video scratchpad...

    I have to say it was refreshing to be able to just quickly whip up what I needed, I love this little app. I even made a little skate video for anyone who wants a quick bird's eye tour of our park. (Quality is very limited since I did this with my cybershot and didn't plan it well or anything) No big tricks, a couple ollies and a backside 180 at the end (which may be the reason my camera's USB port suddenly stopped working ), but I was paranoid about my camera getting dropped if I tried anything... But at least it gives you a quick full action glance of the place... Didn't have any time at all to mess around with the file size so they're a tad fat but most of you are on cable anyways, so splurge and download the 7MB file already...

    BTW just for reference, the small humps are around 5 feet tall or so and the bigger drops and humps we go over are around 12 feet tall, perfect scale. not too small, not too big. I shot this on Thanksgiving day last week, -6 degrees Celcius at the time. Watch it full screen with Count Floyd's terrifying 3D glasses for full scariness kids... Owwwooooo!
