Shaun White Snowboarding Pemier
This girl showed up ready to party, MacBook and all.
Cathy White and Devin from Target.
Shaun and Lisa Pilgrim, and yes, Shaun is being professional and hiding his drink behind his back.
"I only do it when it's free" Dylan takes one for the road.
An ice sculpture and fake snow, didn't see that one coming!
I went to Shaun's video game premier the other night at Boulevard 3. I was expecting something like a movie premier, but it was kinda like going to ASR with a couple celebrities. The space was pretty big, so it never really got full, but they had a good DJ that who had a Rock/House type thing going, so that was cool. They had fake snow on the entry to the premier, which is similar to real snow, but is made from machines not the clouds.
The game looks dope, best one I have seen so far, but I am not a game junkie, in fact I stay as far away as possible from them, because they make you fat and lazy. But hey, if I was lazy or fat or both, I would probably want to go "snowboarding" on this game. There were runs that looked like shredding down St. Anton off the top of Christoph, just with more kickers!
The gaming industry is as big as the movie industry I think, so Shaun's pretty stoked. It's probably a good gig to have your own video game that's on Playstation and Nintendo and X Box. I think they are releasing a Commodore 64 version in a week or two, so I am holding out. He's got a skate video game coming out too.
There was fake snow and ice sculptures and stuff outside, but inside of the party, they had run out of fake snow, so they used 100 Percent Pure Columbian Powder instead as a substitute for the fake snow, so that was a big hit and much more economical and available in Hollywood.
Good times were had by all.
On an entirely separate note, I ran into Matt Sorum, who I met a few years back while shooting Velvet Revolver and he has teamed up with a designer and opened a store on Sunset. I was thinking total rock and roll stuff, but it's actually quite sophisticated. I dig some of the pieces for sure.
