David Lang sent me a link to this video on the Planet Green website about this amazing 300 square foot apartment in Hong Kong. All the walls are built on tracks and what looks like a one room house can basically transform into any room; kitchen, bathroom, beadroom, etc. Check out the whole video on Planet Green.
Edwin has a rad top 5 feature on the Fit site that you should definitely check out. Speaking of New York, keep a look out for a NY photogallery on the site this week that will include photos like the one of Edwin above shot by Andrew McMullen!
Etnies just posted an edit from the recent Etnies/Empire/T1 BBQ. Looks like good times! Click HERE to check it out.
Soul BMX worked with Nike on a Media Apprentice program and just announced the winner. Pierre Blondel got the first place spot with a great super 8 film that was apparently put together with no editing! You can check out the video and read about the winners (if you can read French) on the Soul BMX site.
Kids and mixtapes. How many times would you record your favorite songs off the radio on to tape. I definitely have stacks and stacks of tapes that are probably still at my parents house in a box somewhere…

Congrats to Drew Bezanson for taking the top spot at Simpel Session 2010. I knew that when I first saw Drew ride at the Tunnel Jam, that he would be a problem in the future. This dude is definitely good and deserves it.
Congrats to Maddog and Ben Wallace for taking second and third as well.
Simpel Session qualifying is going on right now and you can watch it live… Ride UK also put together a great edit from practice. Check it all out after the jump!
This is the first of what probably will be hundreds of edits coming out of Estonia from Simpel Session 2010. Will Stroud threw together this quick edit of Kevin Kiraly at practice today and judging from the clips, you know the contest is going to be crazy!
This edit of joe Dodd for Leaf Cycles has been online for about a week and even though that shouldn’t be a big deal, it almost kept me from posting it… But I couldn’t resist. The video quality is amazing and everyone should check it out. Filmed around Sydney, Australia and Produced by Liquid Productions, this is definitely a great example of really well put together, hi-quality edit!
If you keep up on BMX news or even follow BMX dudes on Twitter, than you already know that Simpel Session is this weekend in Estonia.
The Simpel crew sent through the following press release with all the info you need to know. They will be streaming the event live like last year, so keep reading for all you need to know.
In December we previewed what could only be a crazy ass Subrosa ad featuring Hoang Tran. The actual ad is out now and it definitely lives up to our expectations. The photo was shot by Ryan Fudger on a “Get Used To It” filming trip to Japan and I can’t wait to see the footage from this!
Albert Mercado has a great feature and edit up on the Shadow site. With a cool bio written by Hoang Tran along with some dope photos, and a crazy caveman roof drop ender, there’s no reason you shouldn’t check this out. You can see the photos, edit and bio on the Shadow site and you can also check some photos and the edit after the jump.
Images from the 2010 Pirelli Calendar have graced the pages of probably every website in the world, but for some reason, they haven’t made their way here yet. Shot this year by Terry Richardson in Brazil and only distributed to top Pirelli customers and other select people, the calendar has been in existence since 1964, featuring a new “super” photographer each year. Previous photographers have included Annie Leibovitz, Nick Knight, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, and Richard Avedon (to name a few). What sparked this post was a behind-the-scenes video documenting the whole shoot with interviews with the models and Terry Richardson. All the images and video are pretty NSFW, but keep reading to see some of the shots from the calendar as well as the behind-the-scenes video.
