Rough Life in Vimeo Fest

In addition to the SXSW party (rsvp ) we’re throwing for It’s a Rough Life, we also entered it in the Vimeo Festival under “series”. As such we had to put together a 3 episode file and upload it for the contest. Here it is.

Enjoy a portion of the best of Season 1. Stay tuned for more.

It’s a Rough Life Happy Hour @SXSW 2012

It’s Wednesday morning at JADED HQ and we are spending another day knee deep in sending emails. Yep that’s right, we decided to forgo video production for a few days so that we can work on our carpal tunnel syndrome. Marketing here we come.

If you haven’t heard, and you probably haven’t because we haven’t exactly been blasting it, we are throwing a party for It’s a Rough Life at SXSW 2012. It’s going to be the most epic happy hour for a web series that’s ever been thrown. Be there. March 12 at the Yellow Jacket Social Club, ATX. It’ll go from 4-8pm. Mr. Roughneck is spinning records. And best of all we will be premiering a new episode, the first of Season 2! Consider this the soft reveal of the party and expect a bigger and better one soon.

Now all we have to do is cut the thing… and oh wait, get sponsors for the party.

We’ve spent the last week putting together the most amazingly professional sponsor package. We’ve spent the last two days emailing it out to all the brands we think would be a perfect fit.  Check back in to find out how all of that goes. In the meantime we need more sponsors. Is that you? Is that your company? We need a beer brand, a liquor brand, and a big brand to help us rent out the venue and pick up some of the travel costs. Come on, who doesn’t want to be a part of the It’s a Rough Life Happy Hour, Season 2 Premiere @ SXSW 2012?

Hit us up.

It’s a Rough Life Episode 2: Roughside of Utah Pt.2

In Part 2 of Johnny’s adventure to Salt Lake City, the “Rough side of the Traxx” contest gets started. But not without some drama with one of Johnny’s Sales Reps who shows up riding the competition’s product. All the riders head out and we get to see chaos on train and the first spot, Dead Goat Ledge.

All the riders head out and we get to see chaos on train and the first spot, Dead Goat Ledge.

We’ve been working hard on these, and we appreciate all the support we’ve gotten, especially from the likes of Benny Gold, Lowcard, Typical Culture, and the posts on Slap and other big action sports websites.

Today, we’re audio finishing Episode 3 (the Utah closer, premiering October 20th). Then we’ll get into logging the epic BART Tour 2011 Episodes and putting together questions for Johnny’s spinal interview. The Phoenix (Am) Saga starts on October 27.

If you missed the first Episode you can watch it here now.
