Journey Through Time

0 Comments

 

That Rothmans Porsche 956 is an absolute icon of competition motorsport. And it still hold one of the fastest lap times at the notorious Nurburgring ever recorded. 

"It's quite an emotional moment. Hans-Joachim Stuck switches on the flat six engine of the Porsche 956 with the legendary chassis number 007. Stefan Bellof wrote history with this car and on Dunlop slicks 30 years ago, when he recorded his incredible lap time of 6.11,13 on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. A record that endures until today. The 956 is back at the „Ring". And "Strietzel" travels back in time...

Great stuff.

Inside Germany's Fanciest Car Wash

0 Comments

With a name like "Mr. Wash", this automatic carwash might belong in an episode of The Simpsons. However, this supersized, automatic carwash calls Stuttgart, not Springfield, home and handles about a half million customers a year.

Fahrvergnugen indeed.

If you followed the CART in the 90's (we did), you'll know the name Alex Zanardi. He was a championship-winning driver as part of the Chip Ganassi Racing team. A fan favorite of the series known for his victory donuts, the driver suffered a horrific and brutal accident in 2001, losing both legs upon impact. 

Where is Zanadi today? How did the accident alter his life? Watch the inspiring short above, Touch The Sky, to find out. The answer will surprise you.

"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.

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.

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!

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.
