Hey.


I was just recently in Chile for the last two weeks. Quite an amazing country.

By far the most advanced social and economic south american nation. There is a shit load of growth going on there. Crazy place, super thin country with Santiago 45 minutes between epic mountains and the ocean.

But still, the vibe with every person on every level is "no problem." Everything will happen when it happens, but don't forget to bring it up 5 times in order for it to get done. I love the place. Santiago is Polluted, but not Quito or Sau Paulo polluted.

The weather when I was there was all time. The streets were flooded sweeping cars away and the river was totally overflowing. It snowed in Santiago when I was there for the first time in 30 years.

We were socked in until the weather broke and we took a heli up instead of fucking with the roads. The road to the mountain is a one lane gnarly swithcback massacre with no guard rails and random dogs to manuver around. People drive so sketchy on that road. Several instant death turns.





Was there for work. Stayed at this resort. Valle Nevado.






It snowed about 7 feet in total when I was there.



When it cleared up the snow was amazing. Some of the best riding i've done. ever.




I worked every day but there was for sure time each day to take it all in.

The sunsets were all time epic.




Besides seafood, all they eat is meat, cheese, and bread.

The locals are so fucking nice it was bizarre. The people there helping our crew were so helpful.

But believe they will party your fucking ass of at 14,000 feet and wake up at 6 AM. So gnarly.





One evening we accidentally went to this gentlemans club.

Debit cards were swiped.

A person associated with our group became another participant in worlds oldest profession. I'm keeping it DL regardless if he has any shame.





We bought this Fiat 500 from a gypsy shanty town.
















































We ended up burning it.



Nothing could have been accomplished without help from Kiwi and Party Boy.





I didn't have time to go digging so they insisted that I go over to their parents house on the way to the airport as I was leaving. I ended up getting a few records. Some decent stuff.

    Hey, that "Sotano Beat" is an argentinian beat compilation. And that other "Perciavalle Gassalla" is some sort of argie comedy record too.

    Did they call you "huevon" all the time?

    but i aint mad at ya bizzy

  • Burning one car vs. Contributing $50,000 to the Chilean economy???



    IT's a tough call.





    To put it in perspective.



    The Chileans, the people who live there, wanted to roll the car off a cliff when we were done. I opted to get it towed away to the junkyard.

    pics are dope. South America is beautiful.

    you gotta realize, chile are made up of mostly euro blood (mostly spaniard decent), since the indigenous population was almost completely wiped out. Also, they happen to have virtually no black population unlike other south american nations. Hense, less people to oppress and throw into poverty.

    Oddly, Argentina, which is almost completely all white, and almost no mestizo (little to no indigenous and blacks, other then servents), happens to be doing worse then Chile economicly.

    I'll tell you a secret: opression is not always color-skin related.

    What? We (in Argentina) being almost all white should be economicly better than Chile just because.....of being almost white??????

    The "servents" part is the best. Where did you get that?

    dude, i liked the car burning.

    i like destruction.

    my friend used to live on a ranch in colorado and the dude who owned it would have a cookout/car launch every year. they would buy $50 junkers at auctions, bring it home, then launch them off a cliff. i only saw a video of it but it was pretty sweet.

    Records in Santiago =

    I didn't find much of anything there. Beat-up copies of Los Angeles Negros. Couple of Krautrock records. And some Chilean psych/folk that I left sitting because I have too many unlistenable VG- South American thrift store joints already.

    Buenos Aires on the other hand was kinda
