Lipton Reviews: The Shaun White Gum

While on a beer run, we noticed the a familiar ginger staring up at us from the candy section in the check out line. Though hesitant to spend actual money on something endorsed by Shaun White, we couldn’t help our selves and picked up a pack to check it out so you may or may not have to! So, will Stride’s Whitemind gum make you snowboard better, faster and in closer proximity to babes? Lipton’s got you covered…

And next up, Shaun White’s entire razor scooter line!

The White Church of Fudge

******None of this is safe for work or young ones. Duh.

This week something very important happened: Shaun White brought a shocking video called “Church of Fudge” to the masses.

You see, as TMZ reported, White is being sued by former bandmate Lena Zawaideh for sexual harassment, but of all the frat-boyish, maybe sometimes immature allegations contained in the 76-page lawsuit, we found her allegation that he forced her to watch “Church of Fudge,” a hardcore porn “involving a priest, a nun and poop, to be most intriguing. Poop is next level shit (pun intended).

A few of the text messages described in a lawsuit against Shaun White.

Admittedly until this week some of us were not privy to the actual contents of “Church of Fudge.” I’d seen the name thrown around the internet, but hell, it could have just been a group of religious types who are really into candy. So we needed to look into it further.

If you think Shaun’s having a crappy (pun intended) week with this stuff hitting the fan, consider this: Shaun’s agent, Lowell Taub also manages Ryan Lochte, one of the Olympic swimmers Brazil is claiming made up allegations of being robbed at gunpoint. Taub has his hands full.

shaunlotche
It’s been an interesting week for Shaun and fellow Olympian Ryan Lochte. Here, Shaun is asking Lochte if he’s ever pooped in the pool.

Anyway, back to Church of Fudge. It turns out, it’s a classic shock video that’s been passed around the internet endlessly. You’ve all probably been subjected to Meatspin, or Two girls, One cup… it’s in a similar vain. Something you’d send to your friends, coworkers, or enemies to fuck with them or gross them out. Unfortunately, some people are sensitive. Even drummers.

Encyclopedia Dramatica describes the Church of Fudge: “The Church of Fudge is a classic shock video which contains neither a church nor fudge. Instead, for two minutes the viewer is subjected to hard core coprophagia porn involving a priest and a nun. The bride of christ appears to be begging the priest for some sort of fucked version of holy communion, with the body of Jew wafer replaced by the priests digested bratwurst sandwich from earlier in the day.”

Gross, but still the kind of thing twenty-somethings pass around to shock each other. In fact, YouTube even has a number of “shocked reaction videos” showing people watching the “Church of Fudge.”

If you really must you can watch “Church of Fudge” here. Just don’t sue us. We’ve warned you.

All in all, reading through the lawsuit is fairly entertaining. And while there’s definitely a display of early 20’s, entitled, somewhat immature behavior, it’s also pretty clear that this comes down to money. Most of us text inappropriate things back and forth on occasion for humor or statement. Shaun was brought up in snowboarding and skateboarding, two activities where “being appropriate” has never really been a major priority. But let this be a lesson to you: Scat porn can come back to haunt you. Especially if you have money.

If you can pull yourself away from the above shock videos long enough, you can read through the full lawsuit below.

Shaun White Wins 6th Burton US Open Halfpipe Championship

With the sun shining and the 2016 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championship Halfpipe is incredible shape, the stage was certainly set for near insanity in the pipe – and that’s what the fans got. Shaun White (95.62) delivered massive airs, Ben Ferguson (88.62) and Taku Hiraoka (88.25) brought a combination of impressive style and technical tricks, and the rest of the field kept the scene lit.

Shaun White’s Air + Style Los Angeles

This weekend, Shaun White’s Air + Style event was held in Los Angeles, California — it was roughly 60 degrees. Shaun White personally erected some scaffolding, 16 stories tall to be exact, and started making snow. The Fat Jewish was there. Tickets were buy one get one free, cause you can’t charge full price for Incubus. 

Here’s a video of Shaun and the Fat Jewish building the course:

Shaun White Joins Mammoth Resorts Ownership

2015-04-26_SHAUN WHITE_271

Mammoth Lakes, Calif. – Action sports icon Shaun White is returning to his childhood stomping grounds with the deed in his hand. In a deal announced today, White has joined the Mammoth Resorts’ ownership team as an investor, with an immediate focus on Big Bear Mountain Resorts.

“It’s amazing that I’m now an owner of the mountain where I grew up riding,” said White. “As an owner I’ll be able to make changes and shape the future of the mountain and how people enjoy it–whether they’re beginners or professionals.”

White’s presence will be felt everywhere from the boardroom to the halfpipe. As a brand builder, White has helped usher action sports crossover into the mainstream with Air +Style, blending winter sports, live music, culture and art. For 2016 the international snowboard series will see events in Innsbruck, Beijing, Los Angeles and Mammoth Mountain, with Mammoth Resorts helping produce the event as part of the partnership.

“Shaun’s drive to push the envelope athletically is mirrored by his business savvy as an entrepreneur, demonstrated by the success of his apparel line and Air + Style,” said Erik Forsell, Mammoth Resorts’ Chief Marketing Officer. “Over the last year we acquired two mountains, introduced the Cali4nia Pass, and brought Shaun into the fold. Every one of these moves mean more benefits for our skiers and riders.”

White’s input will also extend to Mammoth Mountain and Big Bear Mountain Resorts’ on-snow experience, which includes the top two terrain parks in the country. In the coming months, Mammoth Resorts and White are expected to announce several updates including  Shaun’s vision for new resort offerings, events and terrain park enhancements.

Shaun White is Kylo Ren From Star Wars: The Force Awakens

shaunwhitekilo

By: Michael McKinney

There has been an awakening, have you felt it?

Shaun White returns to competitive snowboarding just one week before the release of the latest Star Wars film. One can’t help but notice some of the shocking similarities between professional snowboarder Shaun White and Star Wars Antagonist Kylo Ren.

shaunmasks

Look at the similarities between the two masks the resemblance is uncanny.

jeremiah-smith-bmx

Buying your child private halfpipe lessons or sending your kid to Jedi School with Luke Skywalker, it can only end one way: Bad. Sponsored at age 7, did he even ask for this, maybe it’s not his fault, is there still good in this Jedi?

shaun3

The Force is Strong in him his wins and accomplishments are impressive most impressive. It’s clear that he has a high midichlorian count. His powers are growing stronger feeding on your hate.

shaun4

Shaun wears his mask to look more bad ass and honor Darth Vader and Kilo Ren Wears his because he looks like Shaun White.

shaun5

Jedi seek out and find others with powers like their own. The Sith do the same. Will this young Jedi be pulled to the darkside by the evil Sith Lord White?

shaunoops

He throws Jedi bitch fits when things don’t go his way. One can only imagine how much light saber damage he has done to his own property. His last fit lasted two years.

shaun8

Many of Shaun’s outfits would land him front row at Jabba’s Palace with a metal bikini on.

shaun9

He serves the darkside. He tried leaving he really did, it has now all but consumed him.

shaun10

Kylo Ren has a red light saber, Shaun White has red hair. I know it’s mind blowing.

jjs

They both work with JJ. JJ Thomas is Shaun Whites Supreme Leader and mentors him in the half pipe. JJ Abrams directed Star Wars The Force Awakens, and doesn’t care who Shaun White is.

shaun13

He has a strong affinity for black leather suites; this is typical of most villains in the Star Wars Universe. Sith gravitate towards the darkness.

Shaun White’s Winning Run at the 2015 Dew Tour

Just in case you were wondering, Shaun White still plays snowboards.

Shaun White and Darcy Sharpe Win the Dew

Apparently the Dew Tour is still a thing. Who knew? We’re off galavanting at Dirksen Derby in Bend, OR this weekend, but we’ve got some PR photos fro your viewing pleasure.

Shaun White was back in the pipe taking the win. Darcy Sharpe won the streetstyle event in Downtown Breck. Nial Romanek took the best trick on the streetstyle course. And Anna Gasser won Women’s Slopestyle. Men’s Slopestyle finals go down Sunday and we can’t wait to hear who wins.

Hateline: 2/18/15

I would like to announce that episode 48, the episode posted above, is my last official episode of “Hateline: The Series”

Don’t worry, your favorite snowboard news anchor is not disappearing! I am just going to restructure a couple things and create a slightly more diversified show that, well, doesn’t contain the word “hate” in the title. Consider it as the start of something new and better! I will be incorporating more people in the roster than just myself and I have already reached out to some of you about collaborating.  Hopefully I’ll be speaking with a few more of you soon.

It has been awesome to explore this series with everyone and I thank all that have watched, participated and shared. I have created a playlist of all of the episodes, in case you wanna re live the magic.

HERE

Thanks Everybody. Even if it was just hate-watching.

STAY TUNED FOR THE NEW SHIT RIGHT HERE. IT WILL RULE.

Yobeat’s Year in Review: February 2014

yobeatfeb

As we learned in January, lots of stuff happens every day, all winter long in snowboard world, and February was an especially exciting month because, Olympics! If nothing else, it gave us lots of competely absurd things to post about as the mainstream media picked apart our fair sport. Most importantly, this video went viral!

As for those Olympics… Everyone hated the slopestyle course, but not as much as the halfpipe. It sucked, really bad, and we’re still talking about it. In the end, Shaun White disappointed his country and Jamie Anderson and Sage Kotsenberg became overnight celebs. Conan even came down with a case of Sage fever and ya boi ended up on a Wheaties box.

What else… Tim Eddy’s house is really fucking cool. Ski ballet is amazing. Syncronized Snowboard is defintely poised to be a new Olympic sport.

The legendary Banked Slalom happened and while there was snow on the streets in Portland, there was mostly ice on Mt Baker, so we didn’t make it, but lots of people did. Don’t feel bad for me, I got to go to France.

Michigan became a “place to be” thanks to Hawk Island Snowpark.  Kas Lemmens became our favorite Euro and we decided we like Freddy Perry too. Mark McMorris released a Walmart clothing line.  Big Head Boarding also went viral!

And the most interesting story of all – Inside Edition reported that skiers and snowboarders were getting STONED, on the slopes! This later lead to the explosion of Leo’s Smoke Shack and a pretty epic parody.
