A little dark humor for your weekend – seven commercials by the brilliant Swedish director Roy Andersson.
I’m sure this has been everywhere already, but it’s too good not to post.
Joey Piazza put me on to this.
“This 1979 documentary film focuses on gangs such as the savage skulls & nomads who occupied areas of the South Bronx. Perhaps even more compelling is considering that the backdrop and social conditions in this film are a ‘far cry’ from the lifestyle being promoted through disco music and film. Perhaps this answers questions to why many people took preference over the funk records which arguably pathed the way for Hip Hop culture.”
Check out part 2-8 after the jump.

Been digging Tristan Afre’s blog on The Come Up and couldn’t pass up posting this interview with the great Henri Cartier-Bresson. Go spend some time on Tristan’s blog and make sure to set aside an hour to watch this interview solely on the fact that you can never get too much Cartier-Bresson… Just listen to how Avedon praises him in the into. Amazing.
“MANIFESTO NYC follows Joey “The Neck” LaBella around lower manhattan as he rhapsodizes about his history as a narcotics detective and thoughts about the city today.”

A few weeks ago, I was emailed a teaser for a new free French magazine called Figuré BMX Mag. It was labeled “Teaser 1″ which led me to believe there were more to follow. I didn’t post any, hoping I’d be able to clump them all together in a nice package with a Q&A.
Voilà!!! (thats French for “ta-da” more or less)
I reached out to Fabien with a few questions. Click below for that.

Not sure if I’ll ever get sick of Nardwuar interviews. Another classic with ASAP Rocky.
Google put together a project re-imagining some of the most iconic advertising campaigns in history for the web.
“This year we partnered with four global brands and a group of advertising legends in a bid to test a medium and challenge an industry. See how Amil Gargano, Paula Green, Harvey Gabor, Howie Cohen and Bob Pasqualina worked with the latest technology to bring their most famous ideas to life online and inspire a new generation of creative minds along the way.”
The sun has been shining and even though we barley had a winter in New York this year, I can’t wait for the Summer. Just glad I don’t live in Russia. Keep reading to see some crazy snow photos I got in my email the other day.
I recently learned about Dean Hearne participating in this years London Marathon. This piqued my interest, not because I am an avid runner (far from it), but I’m always interested in finding out what kind of stuff people are into outside of what they are known for. In Dean’s case, it’s mainly BMX (obviously).
Click below to check out a quick Q&A with Dean regarding the marathon, preparation and his fundraising.
