Lo conocido


Tan solo hay dos cosas en esta vida:

Lo conocido…

…y lo desconocido.

Pero solo podrás amar lo conocido.


[ And now… please, press play! ]



The known


There are only two things in this life:

The known…

…and the unknown.

But you can only love the known.


Clown - 018




If you find a way to love…
Can you see and stay to love…

In a sign called countlessness
sketch the keys to you.
Reaching for a post
where one loves the most.

As we learn in different ways
free so dreams come true
searching for a style
care without denial.

What we say despite of love
collide into self-retreat,
can’t we see that love can be
something so precious
to cherish and hold and then.

In so many ways to love…
If we realize its love…
In so many ways to love…
If we realize its love…

If you see ignite in love…
So far to reach above…
Can’t you see that love can be…
Something so precious…
to cherish and hold and then
(…something so precious
to cherish and hold and then).

All so many ways of love…
Can we compromise true love…
It’s those funny things in love…
In our only way we love…

* Our love so precious.
True love is to cherish.
Our love so precious.
True love is to cherish.

[ * repeat ]

Let me tell you something bout the space station
It’s only really there in your imagination
That thing ain’t real it’s science fiction
It’s there to feed your space addiction
Those astronauts are not in space
It’s written all over their stupid face

I can spot a liar from a 100 miles
I can spot a fraud from the way they smile
didn’t ya learn nothing from the fake moon mission
That puppet show from president Nixon
Well listen up they’re doing it again it seems
Check out the harnesses and green screens

You see I used to work a lot in film and TV
And I know a bit about the television trickery
to create the illusion that your somewhere your not
A green screen is what you’re gonna use a lot
Or if you wear a harness and attach it to the ceiling
The illussion that you’re floating is what they’ll be believing


All you’re watching is a puppet show
Yeah the whole worlds a stage
Astronauts are actors of course
And yeah they all get paid
Look at me ma I’m floating in space
No your not your lying to the whole human race

So let me tell you little something bout a zero g plane
This thing flies up and then down again
Some weird stuff happens If you’re on the inside
You start to float as the plane takes a dive
Simply add an actor that’s trained to deceive
And you got yourself an astronaut or so you believe

Plane flies up that’s everyone’s cue
Then ACTION we got some deceiving to do
Plane flies down then everyone knows
To start the iss live show
Floating in a plane with zero g
But you only see astronauts on your tv!


Another thing I noticed when I looked at these fools
They’re filming all the space walks in boyancy pools
NASAs gonna tell you that it’s just for training
To practice, for space station maintaing
Well I thought about that but if that’s the case
Then why the hell can I see bubbles in space

Take a hard look at the next space walk
And tell me if you can see bubbles at all
Open your eyes man, I’ll bet you a quarter
Those space walks are all filmed under water
I can see space bubbles everywhere
Hey NASA How the hell did those get there?


So when you see an astronaut aboard the ISS
Take another look at your TV set
They’re pretty good at faking so you gotta look close
Pay some attention to the way the actor “floats”
If you ask me that ain’t zero gravity
But Hollywood effects that I see on my TV

Take a good look at the whole damn thing
These lying bastards are puppets on a string
It’s all a big science fiction puppet show
The games up assholes coz we all know
Thanks for the show NASA it’s been a blast
Now take your fake station and shove it up your *%#^

As the musician Arthur Martin points out, undoubtedly NASA constitutes one of the best (black) humour exhibitions of all those that can be enjoyed in the circus tents, nowadays acting on the “balloon”.

(XD!!) Anyway. No more comments… (for the moment).


Marionetas en en el espacio

Como bien apunta el músico Arthur Martin, sin duda NASA conforma una de las mejores exhibiciones de humor (negro) de todas las que pueden disfrutarse en las carpas circenses hoy en día actuando por el “globo”.

(¡¡Pffff…!!) En fin. Sin más comentarios… (por el momento).

The most insane ski line ever!!

Cody Townsend skiing for Matchstick Productions at Tordrillo Mountains, Alaska. 2014. – (Versión en castellano a continuación de la anglófona) –

A really impressive video produced by MSP (Matchstick Productions) imported from ‘Matchstick Productions‘ YouTube channel.



[ Publicado el 8 dic. 2014 – ‘Days of my youth’ is now available at:




Red Bull Media House, in association with MSP Films, presents ‘Days of my youth’, a new film that examines every skier’s lifelong affinity for the sport. Narrated to the prolific readings of Alan Watts, this film exposes the many joys and occasional struggles associated with a lifestyle built around skiing. Filmed over two years using state of the art techniques and technologies, this movie offers a unique glimpse into the journey of self-discovery that every skier experiences. …/… ]



No place to make turns

There is no place to make turns; neither to brake nor to skid. The crevice that forms in that area of the Tordrillos Mountains in Alaska was chosen on purpose by… go to find out who! for the personal brilliance or the final end of Cody Townsend’s career.

The idea was to insert it in the film ‘Days of My Youth’ made by Matchstick Productions; living legends of freeride were included in the cast, as the case of the Frenchman Richard Permin, the californian Michelle Parker, the canadian of British Columbia Mark Abma, the great Bobby Brown from United States, the also canadian James Heim and Townsend himself.

The film examined the affinity of those skilled athletes with the world of sports and the mountains; an addiction coined throughout their entire lives dedicated to the practice of extreme skiing and freeriding. The narrations of the metaphysician Alan Watts‘ texts accompanied those spectacular images to the rhythm of the story of the many joys and eventual battles that were accumulated along the lifestyle of these magnificent suicides of the snow.

Two seasons of shooting were used in which state-of-the-art technological techniques and tricks were used. An experience that culminated in the production of one of the classics of extreme ski filmmaking made during the last ten years.

Some headlines of the specialized media confessed that, without the evidence of that footage, no one would have believed that such a feat had ever really taken place; and even with those frames in front of the eyes it was still difficult to assume.

Because we were no longer talking about a crack in the usual sense of the term but what barely reached to form a tiny slit between rock walls throughout which it was not possible to cross the skis at all in the desirable horizontal in order to stop or slow speed, case of facing difficulties.

Once the path was well advanced, there was hardly a gap of space to even be able to furrow the corridor in front position; however, Cody maneuvered at his own way to finally achieving the award for the best line of 2014; a trophy awarded by the prestigious Powder Magazine in its fifteenth annual contest.

The event was sponsored in joint venture with Red Bull Media House. And until the day of the writing of this article, the ski sequence of Cody has accumulated on YouTube 10,563,854 viewings.

The controversy with snowboarder Travis Rice

It seems that the line was first ridden by snowboarder Travis Rice for his own video but weeks later Cody Townsend skied it. Cody released just the shot of him ridding the line while Travis was waiting to release his full movie.

When the video blew up and Cody started getting all the credit Travis Rice was obviously pissed. Especially since hes did all the work in scouting and digging out the entrance.

But the two of them have talked about it and it’s all cool now.


Cody Townsend descending Cody Peak



From his first ski run at Squaw Valley at the age of 2, Cody Townsend knew he had found his passion. He spent his early years chasing legends like Shane McConkey and Kent Kreitler around his home mountain before being recognized in his own right as an up-and-coming big mountain skier.

Since turning pro a decade ago, Cody has constantly pushed the limits of fun and adventure. From skiing what some have called “the most insane ski line ever” to adventuring in the Arctic and hanging in the backcountry with his buds, Cody embodies what skiing was meant to be: a journey of exploration and relentless passion in the company of friends.

¡¡El más insensato trazado de ‘freeride’!!

Versión en castellano


Sin sitio para hacer giros

No hay sitio para girar; tampoco para frenar ni para derrapar. La hendidura que describe aquel paraje de los Montes Tordrillos en Alaska fue escogida ad hoc por… ‘¡vaya usted a saber quién! para el lucimiento personal o el definitivo fin de la carrera de Cody Townsend.


Un vídeo ciertamente impresionante producido por MSP (Matchstick Productions) e importado del canal YouTube de la propia productora ‘Matchstick Productions‘.


La idea era incluirla en el film ‘Days of my youth’ de la productora Matchstick Productions; en el reparto figuraban leyendas vivas del freeride de la talla del francés Richard Permin, la californiana Michelle Parker, el canadiense de British Columbia Mark Abma, el genial estadounidense Bobby Brown, el también canadiense James Heim y el propio Townsend.

El film abordaba la afinidad de aquellos diestros atletas con el deporte y la montaña; una adicción acuñada a lo largo de sus vidas dedicadas a la práctica del esquí extremo y el freeride. La narración de los textos del metafísico Alan Watts acompañaba aquellas imágenes espectaculares al ritmo del relato de las muchas alegrías y eventuales batallas que se acumulaban en el estilo de vida de estos magníficos suicidas de la nieve.

Se emplearon dos años de rodaje en los que se usaron técnicas y artimañas tecnológicas de vanguardia. Una experiencia que culminó con la producción de uno de los clásicos de la cinematografía del esquí extremo realizado a lo largo de los últimos diez años.

En algunos titulares de los medios especializados se confesaba que, sin la evidencia de aquel footage, nadie habría creído que semejante hazaña se hubiera llevado realmente a cabo jamás; e incluso con aquellos fotogramas frente a las pupilas seguía siendo difícil de asumir.

Porque ya no estábamos hablando de una grieta en el sentido habitual del término sino de lo que apenas llegaba a constituir una mínima rendija entre paredes de roca entre la que en absoluto era posible atravesar los esquís en la horizontal deseable para lograr detenerse o aminorar la velocidad caso de vérselas en apuros.

Desde bien avanzado en el trayecto no se divisaba apenas un resquicio de espacio para incluso poder atravesar el pasillo de frente; sin embargo Cody se las apañó a su manera logrando el premio a la mejor línea del 2014 concedido por la prestigiosa revista Powder Magazine en su decimoquinto certamen anual.

El evento se patrocinó a medias con Red Bull Media House. Hasta la fecha de redacción de este artículo la secuencia de esquí de Cody ha acumulado en YouTube 10.563.854 visionados.


La controversia con Travis Rice

La controversia de esta línea ocurrió cuando el trayecto fue realizado en primera instancia por el snowboarder Travis Rice para mostrarlo en su propio video. Semanas más tarde, Cody Townsend lo ejecutó con sus esquís. Pero Cody mostró exclusivamente su toma al tiempo de que Travis estaba terminando el metraje completo de su filmación para exhibirlo más adelante.

Cuando el video se hizo viral y Cody empezó a recibir todo el crédito, Travis Rice se enojó; especialmente una vez que había sido él quien se hubo trabajado toda la labor de exploración y excavación en la entrada.

Sin embargo poco después ambos hablaron del asunto y el tema quedó resuelto en concordia.

Reseña biográfica

Desde que ganó su primera carrera de esquí en Squaw Valley con solo dos años se percató de haber dado con su pasión. Trató de emular leyendas del esquí de la talla del malogrado Shane McConkey o el pionero de freeride Kent Kreitler mientras evolucionaba por los parajes montañosos de su entorno natal hasta ser reconocido como el gran esquiador que estaba llamado a ser en el futuro.

Una vez convertido en profesional supo rebasar los límites del divertimento y la aventura. Tras haber logrado lo que muchos entendieron como ‘la línea más loca de todas las habidas y por haber’, hasta permitirse continuar su carrera como aventurero del esquí en el Ártico… -o haber realizado recorridos de esquí de travesía con sus colegas- …Cody se ha convertido en la personificación misma de lo que implica el esquí: Un trayecto de exploración y la culminación de una pasión imbatible en compañía de sus amigos.
