Ricky Adam (see below) has notified me that he’s also just been featured in something called Carne Mag, which I have never heard of.
I went to the site, downloaded issue 2 and proceeded to be fully blown away by all the great stuff that’s featured. Carne Mag is a monthly digital magazine (yes, flippy pages) and I think it’s one of the better ones I’ve ever come across. First of all, it took a few minutes to download the issue, but I didn’t have to wait for any pages to load when I was checking out the mag so it was worth it. In addition, the whole thing looks really nice and is easy/quick to navigate.
The latest 6.0 Partners In Crime just dropped over on the DIG SITE.
This time, it’s Ian Bengochea and Alex Kennedy doing it for Fit Bike Co. Some real good tech street stuff in here.
I came across this link to Tokyo Camera Style on Yimmy the other day and what can you really say? It’s an amazing blog (with an extreme nerd level) that strictly showcases photographers holding their cameras. If you are a regular reader of Defgrip, you know we have a major soft spot for all types of cameras… There’s something about them that can easily draw me in, loosing an entire work day, not looking at actual photos, but photos of cameras, thus making Tokyo Camera Style a gift and a curse.
Tom Perry put together a super good exclusive edit for Defgrip as well as a fun wallpaper for your desktop needs! You can check out the edit and wallpaper after the jump.
Our good friend Caleb Everitt has updated his portfolio with a slew of amazing new design work! Keeping the site very simple, everything is displayed on a single page letting his work for clients like Mutiny, Hufnagle, and MTV take center stage.
*UPDATE* Check out our previous Q&A with Caleb HERE.
The Birth Of Big Air is a new film by Spike Jonze, Jeff Tremaine, and Johnny Knoxville about Mat Hoffman. “Mat is awesome as shit, so we decided to make a movie about him.” The film is part of the ESPN 30 for 30 series, documenting monumental sports figures and moments from 1979 – 2009. Keep reading for more info and a great trailer.

After my early 20s I pretty much wanted nothing to do with “modded” cars. But what our buddy Mike Burroughs did with his once-totalled E28-chassis BMW is another thing entirely.
This car lived a long life and went through a lot of phases. Luckily Mike is nice with the camera and documented every iteration of it. When the car finally met its end, Mike made a rather tasteful short video dedicated to its memory, which you can view below.

According to the site:
Vans and the places where they were documents surviving custom and conversion vans across the West and examines the dialogue which exists between a van’s design aesthetic and that of its surrounding environment.

They follow Byrne, Brian Eno, Dancers, and choreographers, as they document songs, live stage performances, behind the scenes rehearsals, and interviews, giving a glimpse of what its like to go on tour around the world, and the creative process that goes behind it! It will be premiering at this years SXSW film festival in Austin TX. check out the trailer here, I cant wait to see it!
Back in February 2009 Harrison posted one of Ryan Schude’s photos in a Photo Dump. Recently came across his work again on ISO50 and was blown away. His website has some banger images and is definitely worth checking out. Check out a selection and more info after the jump -
