Im really digging the video work of Adam Mufti, I really like how he paces his experimental type of work, shows how much you can achieve with simplicity, I didn’t get the chance to check out his whole site but just from the 5 or 6 I did check out, I threw it in my bookmarks bar!
I stumbled upon site this from a comment on our Facebook post from Christopher. Not knowing who Christopher was at the moment I clicked the link I began to browse around the site and thought it had some great content! Then I stumbled on what looked like a photo of Hamilton (Harrison’s brother), and was like hmmm.. told Harrison he looked around, and he’s like yeah thats Chris Martins site called bossnotboss, a mutual friend of ours! I guess Hamilton made the site! haha, crazy! anyway dig the content, especially the behind the scenes Digital Kitchen stuff! and if you look around you can find funny video on there of Chris himself! haha, always good!

We just setup a Defgrip Facebook page the other day… We are stoked to get our Facebook on and we just gave away a t-shirt to our 500th follower! People seemed pretty psyched, so we are going to give-a-way another shirt to our 1000 follower! Check us out on Facebook and keep your fingers crossed that you are the 1000 follower!!
Australian photographer Cooper Brownlee just finished a new portfolio site that is filled with some amazing photos. Cooper is the man behind Focalpoint Magazine as well as the photographer and art director for Colony BMX. You can check out great interview with Cooper on the Dig site and keep reading to check out some of his photos.
I was just spending some well needed time going through our new contacts list in Flickr and thought it would be rad to post some photos from our new contacts. There are a lot of amazing photographers out there, so by no means does this post include everyone we are stoked on, this is just a selection from the 40+ new contacts I (finally) went through today. We love photos her at Defgrip, so feel free to become a contact on Flickr or just email us some dope photos!
A few years back we made the Purple Rain t-shirt. I think we made about 100 shirts and the other day, I came across some leftover sizes. We have 9 smalls, 1 medium, and 2 larges left and I just threw them into our online store! We printed the shirts on a standard All Style Apparel t-shirt, so they’ll be a bit thicker than the Quilted T and I’m also shipping them out of Canada, so the shipping price is a bit more for the US… But they are only $15 and if they sell anything like the past two shirts we posted, they’ll be gone in a few hours!!
I still think my favorite thing about Bill Cosby is hearing people do Bill Cosby impressions, but I was definitely stoked to watch this old interview with Bill Cosby on the Sony Stitt show talking about drumming… I was definitely crying by the end of this story… One of the cool parts about it, is that Bill Cosby is probably a really amazing drummer because the guy who he talks about relieving him at the end is Max Roach, who is considered one of the most important drummers in history. Check out the interview with Bill Cosby as well as a Max Roach video after the jump.

House Of Commons is a Swedish Selby like website that gives you a look inside peoples homes and work places. Recently House of Commons visited the Johan Fahlnaes of the Göteborg bike shop Childstore. With a mix of BMX, single speed bikes, and art supplies, Childstore looks like a really dope shop!
Ill Studio is a collective of 10 French creatives – photographers, designers, typographers, illustrators, motion designers – that all work together on a wide range of projects. I was drawn to them through their work with clothing company Six Pack and I’m really in love with all of their print and t-shirt designs.
Cameras With Out Cables is a website dedicated to collecting the work of BMX and skate photographers who shoot film. The end goal is to publish a book, but for now, they have a nice selection of film posted on their blog. If you shoot film, you should send some of your photos their way and keep reading to check out some photos that have already been posted on their site.
Exactitudes is an amazing on-going photography series by photographer Ari Versluis and profiler Ellie Uyttenbroek. I actually posted on this project in September of 2005 when defgrip was still on a blogspot and I couldn’t figure out how to upload photos to go with the posts (haha). It’s cool because the old blogspot site is still up and you can actually read the original post here. I actually wrote quite a bit about Exactitudes, so rather than re-writing the post you can read what I had to say about the series back in 2005 and see some images from the project after the jump.

My old roommate and good buddy Kevin McAvoy hipped me to these new Porsche commercials. They appear to be an attempt at preemptively addressing the critics who say it’s not a true Porsche… by closely associating the 4-door with the older rawer rear-engined 2-doors and their race heritage, rather than distancing it from them as most purists and critics seem to be doing.
Regardless of how you feel about the Panamera, these commercials are so good. It must have been a fun few days in the desert.
