We Don't Need Another Hero

What’s up, y’all!
Hope you had a great Christmas weekend. Next up is New Year’s weekend, are you ready? 2023 is here. What’s your plan for the year? Ours is to keep grinding and keep growing. And of course, to get the hell on the road finally! 😆 We’re one step closer this week:
Yep, the Fairlady lives again! And that makes us just about as happy as Grizz riding with his head out the window! 😁⬇️
That also means that there’s probably a new video coming soon, so stay tuned!
Video of the Week
Go Off Grid Camping With Snale Racing!
Been combing through videos from last summer, and this one had a lot of good memories. What a fun weekend that was! This video focuses on the camping part of the trip, but there was a lot more going on behind the scenes.
A secret golf tournament was happening out there in the woods, and we were shooting footage to make a documentary about it (which is coming soon). If you watch the video closely, you can see one golfer make a brief appearance, shooting for a hole-in-one across the water.
What We’ve Been Into
gnob picked out the movie this week. He’s never seen the original Mad Max trilogy, so we started at the beginning.
I warned him that I remembered the first one being hard to watch, and it was, but we managed to slog through it. Though there are some epic car chases and explosions, there are some really brutal scenes, as well. I don’t think most people have seen this one, but you don’t really need to watch it to enjoy the other movies.
Still, it’s Max’s backstory, and you not only learn about him but also about his car, the “Last of the V8 Interceptors”, which is featured in several of the movies. And like gnob said, it’s always compelling to watch a decent guy trying to do the right thing - until he’s pushed past his breaking point - until the only solution left is to take matters into his own hands.
From a filmmaking standpoint, it’s also very interesting to watch. You can see that George Miller (the guy who wrote and directed the Mad Max movies) has had a consistent vision through all of them. Though he didn’t have the budget for this one that he had for Mad Max: Fury Road, it’s the same apocalyptic world with the same type of insane villains.
Quote of the Week
That wraps up another week with Snale Racing! We’ll leave you with the quote that was most powerful for us this week. Forget the noun. Do the verb. Peace!✌
