Shoot the Moon, to me, follows suit with the previous seasons Videograss releases. It's more raw and un-polished than most snowboard videos out there today. At times, it reminds me of the Baker and Deathwish skateboards videos...hi-jinx, crazyness, lots of quick cut in the editing. I'm a fan of the past Videograss releases so as you could imagine, Shoot the Moon was right up my alley. It's more of a rail, urban terrain type of video as opposed to a back country, freeriding vid...but I'm okay with that. It's all snowboarding and as long as they're out there having fun and putting out quality material, I'm all for it. Everyone featured in the video shreds, but stand outs for me would go to Justin Benee, Jake Olsen-Elm, Jed Anderson, Louif Paradise, Jordan Mendenhall, Darrell Mathes, and Gus Engle. Go check it out.
Next up is Retrospect. This here snowboard flick is more of an all around, smorgasbord of snowboarding goody goodness. There's something in here for everybody, I'm sure if anyone pops this disc into their player it'll put smile on their kisser. As well as the incredible riding, there's a lot of scenic eye candy that I always enjoy. The riding in this video is incredible...from the rails, to the kickers, to the back country...it's off the charts. The soundtrack is killer as well, kudos my friends, kudos. Stand out parts for me go to Ben Bilocq, Bryan Fox, Ethan Deiss, Jake Blauvelt, Xavier De Le Rue, and Harrison Gordon. Again be sure to check this video out, there's something here for everybody.

P.S. I need to be drinking energy drinks as much as I need a new hole in my head. I need to be drinking more water. End of story.
