Joe sent in this sweet edit he put together of the T-1 crew in Colorado:
I feel like I’ve written so much about the amazing state of Colorado over the years. It continues to deliver that magic “dose” of life, each and every time. I had the pleasure of making this great journey this year with a few fellow T1ers. Danny Hickerson, Joseph Frans, and Tom Dugan joined me for some fun filled days in the mountains . . . This place awaits you just the same. Make some plans and get there !
Tate gives a little insight into two of his most well-known clips in the 50/50 video and get’s into some of the Salt Lake City influences that shaped his riding into what is probably one of the most creative styles on the Pro Circuit. Did I just say pro circuit? Yep. Tate got laid off from the grocery store where he’d worked for 8 years and is now out in California filming for the Demolition video and stacking clips. His final comments on Mike Aitken are as real as it gets.
Chad Johnston and Aaron Bostrom are in the process of opening up a shop in Long Beach, CA called Neighborhood BMX. The 2 of them have been local to the LBC for some time, so this seems like a good move on their part.
I hit up Bostrom with some questions about the whole thing, so click below to check that out. Also, be sure to check out the Neighborhood BMX blog to keep posted on everything.
Incase and José Parlá have teamed up for the latest “Curated by Arkitip” project where they produced three pieces for the Incase collection — a MacBook Pro Sleeve, an iPad Book Jacket and an iPhone Slider Case. To go along with the project, they have also produced a great short film documenting Parlá’s painting process. Starting out with some coffee and a stroll down the street, Parlá starts collecting old posters and flyers from the walls of the city. After he has a nice collection of textures to work with, he brings them back to his studio and goes to work. I’ve always been obsessed with José Parlá and his hand writing and it’s definitely a treat to get to see him in action. Check out the whole collection on the Incase site and keep reading to watch the video.
Author Dallas Clayton hit us up with some info about his new book. His first book — An Awesome Book — was a major hit and to follow it up, Dallas just released An Awesome Book of Thanks. While I was browsing his site, I came a cross this rad clip from the new Joaquin Phoenix film I’m Still Here, where Joaquin is actually reading from Dallas’ book. I can’t wait to see that movie and I also can’t wait to check out Dallas’ new book. Keep reading to check out a little video about An Awesome Book of Thanks as well as the Joaquin Phoenix clip and you can get all the info about Dallas Clayton and his new book on his website!
Just got linked to this amazing blog from designer Justin Thomas Kay’s Twitter. The blog — 9eyes.tumblr.com — is basically a compilation of random scenes and scenarios taken from Google street view. How these people (or person) have the time to find all these images is beyond me, but none the less… this will probably be the coolest thing you look at all day.
The Anthem 2 premier went down last night in Austin, TX. I think calling this premier a historical BMX event is pretty fair, and judging by all the people on hand and/or who travelled for it, could back that up.
If you were not on hand and read about it all night on Twitter, than you can check out this Photogallery of the night courtesy of Cody Nutter. A big shout out to that dude. Follow him on Twitter and Flickr.
Tampa born, New York based photographer, Chadwick Tyler has some great photos in the new issue of Dazed and Confused. While I was searching around to find a digital version of these photos, I came across a very captivating video Chadwick filmed with 16 year old singer Misty Miller. The video isn’t embedable, but you should check it out here. Anyway… I’m really digging the retouching and textures in these photos… Keep reading to check them out and you can see more of Chadwick Tylers work on his site.
Sher sent in the latest Subrosa print ad, with the following:
Here is our latest print advertisement. Not a lot of action, but a familiar scene for all. Hot summer days out riding with your friends always ends up in front of a gas station at some point. Drinks, smokes, scratch offs, ice cream or even one of those delicious greez-y hot dogs that just roll around all day. Either way, it’s never just a quick stop, grab what you need, get weird looks from the locals, or even the “Ya’ll in a band or sumpin?” This was one of those stops. North Carolina summer pit stop while out filming with the Subrosa team and friends. None of us became millionaires. We ran this in Ride US, and on the back cover of Ride UK.
