From the Through the Roof website
In January of 2010, the C.H.E.K Institute teamed up with the Challenged Athletes Foundation, Overstock.com and many other key sponsors to help assist the first female paraplegic athlete to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. On Sunday, January 31st, 2010, at approximately 5:30 PM, Erica Davis, a paraplegic since 2005, along with Tara Butcher, an amputee below the left-knee, reached the summit.
This successful project is designed to bring awareness to the capabilities of Challenged Athletes everywhere in that anyone can accomplish anything and everything they put their minds to. The preparation and climb were filmed by Captured Life Productions to be compiled into a documentary entitled Through the Roof, to be released in late Spring 2010.
It’s late spring now, and Donewaiting faves and fantastic motherfuckers Brainbow have music featured in the film and said film is premiering at the Gateway on Saturday. If you’re not going to Nelsonville, go to this, then go to Skully’s for the after-party where Brainbow, Main Street Gospel and EYE will rock your face off.
Shit’s gonna be through the roof maaaaan.

Lateness disclosure: I didn’t wanna mess with Texas
O.K, O.K I think I’m finally over that saddy sad seasonal affective disorder nonsense and I’m super stoked for life all over again (oh man) and boy howdy, the Scion Rock Fest was the bee’s knees AND the cat’s pajamas no shit. I’ve also been speaking more freely and talking to anyone who will listen. It’s basically like listening to a live stream of my brain (stuttering=buffering). Seriously though, it was really fucking cool and I totally had a blast.
Vice and Scion did a rad job with this and it really did go off without a hitch. It was awesome to see the Short North crawling with stoked metal dudes. My only gripe really was that it wasn’t all in one spot, but that’s really here nor there because the way it was set up totally worked. You know the drill—–> Continue reading
