FODT’s “The Arena” Premiere in SLC
Autographies! These double-sided posters feat E-Stones photos are fresh Words and photos by Sean Kerrick Sullivan MFM x FODT’s “The Arena” premiered in SLC last weekend at the University of Utah to an overflow of over 500 rabid snowboard fans. Consider this: last week, “The Arena” world premiered at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. Both the Fox and Boulder are known for partying, and well, the University of Utah discourages such practices on its campus, instead pointing revelers downtown to enjoy mini shots and 3.2% beers. Nonetheless, the house was packed, and for once, an all ages audience was able to enjoy a premiere without out fear of an out of control Derek Dennison spilling a pitcher of beer on a toddler. (jk Derek, take it easy) Even filmer/producer/T9 Team Manager, Cole Taylor brought his daughter Mia to check out the scene. You sir, moose’t have the tallest t I’ve seen tonight We heard thru the grapevine there was a t-9 tattoo in the house, and there was, and he got a ton a free gear. Word. Dylan Thompson throwing some schwag to the fans As expected, the crew rolled out and showered the crowd with free product, signed autographs and premiered their movie that’s harder than a bag of frozen granite. With an afterparty @ SLC’s notorious Jackalope, the night was a good one, as the photos, or lack thereof will attest. Dance off for a new snowboard. This kid was nimble Mo’Nimbles The winner! Fully packed Ryan Turley, Dylan Thompson, MFM, Cole Taylor, and JMills introduce the movie Alex Andrews and friend with skate and destroy tats Jake and Norm from the UofU Ski&Snowboard Club Cole Taylor and his daughter Mia MFM and JMills. For those who don’t know, JMills is a filmer/producer who works on nothing but the FRESHEST projects. Dun.

This was all I woke up with, and I most definitely don’t remember how I ended up here.
