Review -- Cult's "Talk is Cheap" DVD

Mon, 3 Dec 2012 15:29:54 PST



Yesterday, I watched Cult's new video "Talk is Cheap," a new DVD that runs just under an hour, from start to finish two times in a row. The last time I did that, I can't even remember. But the video was epic enough for me to go right back to the start and take it all in again. Yes, it's that good.

Wed, 28 Nov 2012 09:41:08 PST



As fall was setting in, Deluxe pro Mike Saavedra expressed worry that the trails he built at Woodward Camp's new Lake Tahoe location wouldn't last much longer. Tahoe at the end of summer sounded like a perfect weekender to me, so two days later, we were packed and headed out on an 8-hour overnight...
