1982 Indianapolis 500

312 Comments
On Sunday, May 30, 1982, the 66th Annual Indianapolis 500 Mile Race was run at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Some 800+ miles south, in suburban Charleston, SC condominium, my parents were hosting a "500 Party", our family having just moved to the area some months earlier. My parents tuned the home hi-fi system to the radio broadcast of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing and introduced another Hoosier tradition (the first being basketball) to their new friends.

Below is the complete ABC broadcast of the race, which had an unusual start as well as the closest finish in Indy 500 history.

Brilliant...a survey of multiple auto manufacturers pronouncing their respective brands in a native tongue. Love the extra syllable on 'Fiat (ah)'.

Coen Brothers for Mercedes

1208 Comments
TV commercials, especially those for the Super Bowl, usually suck. But thanks to the legendary writing/directing team of the Coen Brothers, this one sucks a little less than the others. Check out this spot for Mercedes which is as much playful nod to "Easy Rider" as it is to "Raising Arizona" (think 'Lone Biker of the Apocalypse').

Long time friend, fellow skateboarder and SCAD alum, Benny Gold, recently invited me to do a Guest Artist Series graphic. We've turned the design into a few graphic tees and a cruiser deck (crafted by the legendary Paul Schmitt/PS Stix Factory) and it's available now at BennyGold.com! You can also see the product in person at their new store in San Francisco at 968 Valencia Street.

Thanks Benny!
