Dennis rides his bike like a grown-ass man, but every once in a while you get a jarring reminder of how young he is. Like when you ask him what his favorite old movie is, and he says “Final Destination”.

Fox just posted the second edit I did for them for my Andalucia series. There is no bmx riding in this one, so I’m sure that kids will have a thing or 2 to say. I decided to do one full chapter on this place “El Chorro” because I thought it was amazing enough to support one being done. It was incredible. Truth is, we alll can have some amazing opportunities that come up on trips like this, and its fun to show others what they were.

Joe Cookie just uploaded Mike Ardelean’s part in 411. I was super stoked when this part came out and It’s rad to see it again. I had a section in the same issue that was on TCU the other day and It’s pretty cool that Mike and I were in this issue together before we even knew each other.
I just came across THIS ALSO, which is a rad photo site with a nice simple layout and premise.
The site is nothing but thumbnails (for lack of a better word), which also double as links to that particular photographers site. The site seems fairly new (I guess), and I don’t know how often it’s updated yet, but this would be a pretty awesome/easy way to come across new stuff.
Check out THIS ALSO, and prepare to kill some time.
My longtime friend Tim Swart has been working with IPATH, and recently asked me to assemble and manage a BMX team for them. So here we are. Joining me on the IPATH BMX program are Jim Bauer, Andrew Jackson, Brian Yeagle and Dave Thompson, who is pictured above wearing the Gall shoe (photo by Jason Eichhorst).
I’ve always been impressed by their use of sustainable materials and business practices, and by the way IPATH stays IPATH with an unmistakable look. For those reasons I was excited for the opportunity to get involved and hook up some deserving riders. Stay tuned for more.
The Blog A Continuous Lean has a rad feature that they’ve been doing for a few years on their site called “From The Desk Of”, which is basically a look into the work spaces of very creative people. They just posted a new feature on fashion designer Richard Chai and based off the comments on Defgrip, I know you guys are just like me and loving seeing peoples work spaces. Check out all the “From The Desk Of” features on ACL and keep reading to see a few of my favorite desks.
“LET’S CATCH UP, TAKE OUR CLOTHES OFF, STARE AT EACHOTHER”… Everyone loves image/photo blogs and I couldn’t resist posting about Them Thangs, a site I just came across while browsing ffffound… From the looks of the URL, the blog is a collection of images gathered by designer Justin Blyth. Not that I need more websites to waste all my waking hours, all the images are too good to resist and I’m definitely going to be bookmarking this site.
Carson Leh hooked us up with a rad link to a motorcycle blog, Bike EXIF, over the weekend. The site has some amazing photos and even though I don’t know much about motorcycles I’m really stoked on all the bikes as well as the quality of the photos. Thanks Carson!
Hardformat is rad album archive website that I came across from one of @Reserves twitter links. “It seems like everybody’s talking about the end of physical music media. Who knows whether they’re right or not, but Hard Format is a little place we’ve set up to celebrate our love of brilliant music-related design.”
It seems like the site is still gathering artwork and a lot of the albums are just thumbnails as of now, but the work they have up there is great and I can’t wait to see more content from Hardformat. Check the site out here – hardformat.org
“I was like, fuck it, I’m going dude” A new video of Mike Hoder from Lotek (via TCU). Check it out after the jump, along with the full photo you are looking at right now. Just look at Mike’s shirt + neck + arms. I’m excited to see what Hoder produces for the full Lotek DVD!
It looks like this video has made its rounds on the internet due to the massive amount of views, but nonetheless, the email I just got from Guiom (thanks for the link!) was the first time I saw it. Last Day Dream is a short film by Chris Milk of a man watching his life pass by. Filmed on a Canon 5D Mk II with a Lensebaby, the visuals are amazing and the story line is very touching.
