Funny Winter Humor
Snowboard Fail Slide shows a painful, yet funny snowboarding incident.
Snowboarding Turkey video seems like it can hardly be real, but must be legit, because perhaps the only thing stranger than making a video of a turkey on a snowboard would be fabricating a video to seem like a turkey is riding a snowboard when it is not really true.
Ducks Can't Ski, and this funny photo is proof of that!
If you are sick of checking out all this winter humor, with the cold and snow, try checking out something seriously tropical, like these palapas.

Snowboard & Skateboard Videos
Generally Awesome's first film effort was a snowboarding video. As you can see for yourself this effort was a very humble one. But it did feed an ongoing interest in short film and entertaining internet video clips. At the time that Board Stiff was filmed in 2004 there was very little video on the internet. Pretty amazing how things can change so much in just 4 years. Now thanks to the video sharing revolution there are tons and tons of videos online, all with varying degrees of quality.
Generally Awesome has continued to make short films and has learned and evolved along with the genre of short clips. We have learned (by trial and error) that the best videos follow simple rules. Here are some tips:
- Edit, Edit, Edit! Boil the video down to the best parts.
- Background music spices things up!
- A collection of medeocre moments can't stack up to one awesome moment.
- Showing a little advanced editing and camera work goes a long ways.
As you can see, Generally Awesome was not a video pro from day one, as no one can expect to be. Watch and learn. Below are some cool skateboarding and snowboarding clips that display some of the ideas above.

What's New With Generally Awesome?
Another thing to note is that we killed the forum. If you did not ever visit it, then you did not miss anything. If you did visit it recently then we apologize for all the nasty junk and other gross stuff that got posted by spammers. Our team is too small to police a forum, and it never caught on anyway, so we ditched it. Maybe in the future we will take our lessons from the old message board experience and apply that in the future on a better one. For now, we think our engery is better spent elsewhere. If you were offended by any of the garbage that accumulated on the old forum in its dying days, we apologize deeply to you.
The RSS feed is alive again. We were not updating it for a while there (1 year +). We have made it a priority and intend to keep it up to date, so go ahead and visit the frontm page of generally awesome and subscribe!
