As a proud and vocal Melbournian, most people don’t know I was born in the Blue Mountains of NSW.

Which means for 3 nights and 1 afternoon every year you’ll hear roars and screams coming from a place no Victorian could ever understand. Deep, gutteral sounds I couldn’t describe if I tried.

So after all these years of pain… I spent 5 seconds mocking this up to stick up in our office and show a few Kiwi’s, an Englishman and some native Victorians what’s in store during State of Origin Game 1 tonight.

Enjoy the game

When you grow up snowboarding like I did, it feels a little strange watching as freestyle skiing explodes like Gremlins in the cake mixer.

But to deny what’s happening on two sticks these days would be ignorant… Especially after seeing what these lads get up to in Legs of Steel: Nothing Else Matters.

As the Vimeo description reads: Crank up your speakers and hit full screen.

or, if you’d prefer a shorter ski video that’s still sick as hell…
Say hello to Bobby Brown.

Thought you’d seen every visual homage to the greatest boxer of all time? Not quite.
Check out this recently completed work from artist Michael Kalish, entitled reALize, commissioned by the former Mr. Cassius Clay himself.

ReALize took Kalish 3 years to complete and incorporates 1,300 speed balls, two miles of aluminium tubing and five miles of stainless steel cabling.

While running a website dedicated to spreading positivity can be really fun, it’s sometimes difficult to stay motivated while others suffer through the distress of loss, pain or (currently for Australians) even natural disasters.

It’s with this in mind that I have been searching for something that might keep us all pumped throughout the coming days.
The following clip is a mashup of some of the greatest sports movies ever made. Far from trivialising a frightening time for many people, I hope it serves to help bring a smile and a glimmer of hope to people around Australia and beyond, no matter how grim the outlook may seem at times.

Stay safe, QLD

Sincerely,

Muz, Ains, Bry & DJ
