The Harrison Boyce Alternative

2014_06_10_harrisonBoyce_1600

Alternative has teamed up with Defgip’s very own Harrison Boyce to create a capsule of Organic Pima Cotton T-shirts featuring Harrison’s photography.

If you’re in NYC this Thursday 6/19, come by the shop and have a drink with us to celebrate, and see some more of Harrison’s work.

If you’re elsewhere in the world, check this conversation with Harrison about the capsule.

“For everything bad, mescal; for everything good, the same.”

Mescal, for those who haven’t had the pleasure, is a smoky, delicious Mexican spirit primarily produced in Oaxaca from the agave plant.

“It’s a really rad plant,” Bayer says. “The way it’s cultivated is very poetic and somehow very tragic.”

In five minutes you can be an expert on Mescal. Get enlightened at Need Supply.

I’m not even a Star Wars nerd and I think this Aloha Yoda print is some of the best shit I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Fuckin Yoda mixed in with some flowers. Amazing.

In case you haven’t figured it out, Vans has teamed up with Star Wars for some Star Wars inspired Vans goodies (duh). This project came out pretty awesome overall. Click below to eyeball all the softgoods and to get all the info you need.

Hanson Little has ventured out of his hometown and hit the open road on an exciting open-ended adventure of sorts, and I’ve been enjoying his photos and stories from along the way very much.

I suggest you follow him on Instagram and Tumblr to keep up to date. Visit the Radavist to learn more while you’re at it.

New York In The 80’s

Went back in time looking through this “New York in the 80’s” photoset on Steven Siegel’s Flickr. There’s currently 386 photos from when NYC was a totally different place than it is now. The photo above was titled “Hole in Manhattan Bridge Walkway”. Crazy.

If you want to go deeper, he’s got a lot more sets to get lost in.

The Man Behind The Mountain

Anyone who has been to Slab City/Salvation Mountain out in Cali will enjoy this short piece on the man behind it.

I recommend starting your day with the above short film by our friend Nicholas Maggio. It’s 2.5 minutes long and mixes romance, crime, and the world’s fastest 4-door sedan (in 1985) together very nicely.
