The Fort is a cool little center that harbors a range of art studios, photography spaces and a recording studio. Being a flight away from the nearest hill doesn’t seem to matter with these guys and they polished off all the free Corona and Jager and then drank the rest of the bar dry. Some amazing dudes up in that there town. Nice work Brisbane.

Next stop for the B Movie is tomorrow night (Tuesday the 20th) in Melbourne. All the information can be found on the Facebook page. Don't forget the Melbourne Premiere is a come one come all event as no ticket is required, so just turn up and we will squeeze you in.

Bangers And Stash

The Remarkables had their annual “Bangers and Stash” end of season event, it is basically a BBQ and jam format event at the hut in the Stash run.This year the weather was perfect with the beer and snags flowing from midday and not stopping until the lifts shut. On top of the normal Stash features the park staff had also created a whole bunch of custom features to add to the fun.

Nick Hyne shredding the setup.

As you can see Remarkables has still got a heap of snow 4 days before closing.

Jye Post Break Check In

Jye Kearney busted his collar bone on the Thredbo kicker that has been getting all the coverage of late. We hit Jye up to see what has been happening since that fateful day.

SMM: Hey Jye, Boadle just told me the news of the collarbone break. How did you bust it?

JYE:Front 9 stomped on icy landing then caught a toe edge and slammed!

SMM: Any crazy pictures of it busted ?

JYE: Na just X-rays and you can barely even see the break as it is just a hair line fracture. Lucky it was a nice clean break and with my young bones I will have a full 100% recovery.

SMM: What are your plans for the rest of the season?

JYE: Well it happened at a good time really, haven't missed out on anything, what a crap spring hey! Caramel swirl up there at the moment and now with some pixie dust to add on top.

SMM: Good luck with the recovery time.

JYE: Yeah cheers, I'm doing all the good things as well as keeping mentally focused too.
