Here’s Russ cruising LA with VEESH in tow. Good combo. Eyeball the irieness.
With that said, we’ve hit up Ben Hittle, Sean Sexton, Aaron Smith, Darryl Tocco, Lloyd Wright, Dan Coller, Tony Hamlin and Chris Doyle to reflect on their time making this video and to recount any memorable moments that come to mind.
Thanks to Jay Roe for the assistance!

I’m pretty sure Tom and Tina decided on Argentina as a destination because Argentina has “Tina” in it, and Tina wears the pants at Empire. That may or may not be how it went down, but Tom Dugan, Aaron Ross, Kevin Porter and Devon Hutchins for SURE went to Argentina and filmed it.
Maaaaaan, I always thought it would be sweet to interview the dude who did the Radical Rick comics one day. Jeremy Pavia got it done.
Hit up The Union to check out Jeremy’s interview with Damian Fulton.
With Vampire Weekend getting ready to release a new album, I’ve been revisiting their previous material, wearing more plaids and trying to apply to Ivy League colleges. ALSO! I’ve revisited the video part that introduced me to Vampire Weekend in the first place; Dan Cox in Tomorrow We Work. I loved Dan’s part and this video as a whole, so check it out again.
Shout out to Joe Cox.

No words. Except FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!
S/O to the DIGGEST crew. More HERE.
Enarson + Slattery + Smith + Wise + Lodes + Napolitan + Mastroni = This.
Loving this series from Mutiny. The latest Cool Story Bro is with George Boyd and features a storm trooper, a transformer, and a boxing chihuahua. Check it!
New Hawk, Dak & Dehart head coverings from Cult. More info HERE.
When he’s not working on or doing bike related stuff, Bauer loves wrenching on cars. Is “wrenching” still a current acceptable term to describe working on cars? Anyway… Petrolicious has caught up with Jim to discuss his minty green Porsche.
Check out the Q&A HERE.
I LOVE SQUAREBACKS!!!!

Sounds interesting. Click below for press release.
Had I not been forced to watch Office Space this year, I would be completely lost on this commercial. But now I get it! Luckily, I know Jim Cielencki who let me borrow the DVD (which is eerie considering him and Ryan Sher were once teammates). Conspiracy? Shadow Conspiracy? Ok I’ll stop now…
R.I.P. GUTI camera #6. You did your job with dignity and class. You can see camera #6′s work in our full-length DVD “Get Used To IT” due to release to the public around April 2013
Filmed and Edited by Ryan Chadwick

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!
The 316 House is a BMX compound of sorts out here in Austin. Devon Hutchins was able to capture its vibe for this little Odyssey gem. I’d love to interview the neighbors.
This was filmed over a three month period in Austin, Texas at the 316 (Kansas) House. It includes three of the people that live there, Tom Dugan, Jared Swafford, and Mat Houck plus two that don’t, Aaron Ross and Jabari Winters. This is just a small example of the things you would see while over there. As you can probably guess, their neighbors don’t really like them. Enjoy.
This video reappeared in my vimeo feed today. It definitely deserves more views than what it has. The amount of peg usage is on par and includes both sides of the bike on more than one occasion. Do not be afraid to watch it more than once.
If you’re a fan of Chase Hawk, art or Satan in general… this 15X19 print is for you. Hit up Cult for more info.
For this years Simple Session, we were able to get our friend Vincent Perraud out there to cover the whole thing for us. We’re fans of Vince around here and I knew he would come back with great photos, which he did (and delivered in a super timely manner). I fucking love this gallery; it captures the atmosphere, the people, the scene and the riding perfectly. Dude even got into the rafters.
Cheers to Vincent, Risto and the Simple Session crew.
