"Rush Hour"

0 Comments

Enjoy the surreal beauty in this short, "Rush Hour" from director Fernando Livschitz. Oh, how we wish reality contained this much synchronicity and calm efficiency....but perhaps the promised-future of self-driving cars will deliver something analogous to the above.

My Rules- Glen E. Friedman & Ian MacKaye

0 Comments

We've been fans of Glen E. Friedman for a long time. He's shot some of the most iconic images of our favorite subcultural anti-heroes, including Public Enemy, Tony Alva, Black Flag, Run-DMC, Jay Adams, the Beastie Boys, Duane Peters, Ice-T...the list goes on and on.

Friedman has a new book coming out soon titled My Rules, via his Burning Flags Press label. He recently sat down with Ian MacKaye to share a few stories behind  some of their favorite photographs. Amazing stuff.

What's not to love about this footage from the 1976 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix? It features Niki Lauda and James Hunt at the height of their rivalry as well the most unusual chassis F1 ever raced, the six-wheeled Tyrrell P34. Originally from Brighton Films.

Type Safari with James Victore

0 Comments

We love the irreverant spirit of this short, Type Safari with James Victore. Watch him take to the streets of Brooklyn to critique all sorts of vernacular signage with a good dose of cynicism and humor.

And dig that Jeep!

Skate Crate: The Anti Scooter

0 Comments

There is just over seven days remaining on this great Kickstarter project, Skate Crate: The Anti Scooter. From the reputable Dave Bergthold (Blockhead Skateboards), everything about this idea and the presentation is perfect. Amongst the variations to be made available is a DIY kit, which encourages customization and modification right out of the box.  We're pretty sure that Skate Crate Company will reach it's funding goal and we're already looking forward to purchasing one.

Grand Prix: The Killer Years

0 Comments

This documentary, Grand Prix: The Killer Years, is amazing as it is horrifying. It's hard to believe a time when fatalities of both participants and spectators at Formula 1 racers were almost commonplace. Thanks in part to people like Sir Jackie Stewart and organizations like the Grand Prix Drivers Association, continuous safety improvements over the past 40+ years have reduced the death statistics dramatically. The last fatal accident at a Formula 1 Grand Prix was Ayrton Senna in May of 1994.

Acura - My Way by Sid Vicious

0 Comments

Without audio, this new TV spot for the Acura 2015 WHATEVER passes by like a generic montage of automobile industry clichés. However, when it's scored to the obscure cover tune by Sid Vicious, My Way, it elicits that Pavlovian response in us that makes pop culture sometimes tolerable.

Although we will never buy an Acura, we will definitely go watch the Great Rock and Roll Swindle again.

The Ripple Effect - Bob Hurley

0 Comments

Besides having some great clips of Craig Stecyk (one of our favorite cultural enigmas)this short from (*gasp*) RedBull.com presents the evolution of Bob Hurley and the Hurley brand. It's an interesting and well-produced spot that persuasively shows us that Hurley is not a souless, mega-corporate brand it might appear to be. In fact, it may be quite the opposite; a passion that accidentally grew to become a very unique label. 

And Hurley, thanks for supporting fellow surfers, skateboarders, musicians, artists and other creative folks around the globe.
