Scott Marceau

Scott Marceau is another great photographer from the Snake Lounge crew. This post is definitely many years over-due, but none-the-less Scott has some amazing work and I really love all his Polaroids. Lately Scott has been pushing the Flip Cam movement and was responsible for the much-loved edit for his site Push it a Stop.

Q&A: Will Smyth Discusses DIG’s New Direction

Dig site 2

DIG BMX as you have come to know it is changing. How? Well, after 21 years the actual print magazine has ceased to exist and all energy is being redirected online. This new direction may or may not come as a surprise these days, but it is surely a welcome change.

I have always been a huge fan of DIG and I’ve got my fingers crossed that they can continue doing what they do in digital form. With that said, there is a new site and new staff in place to tackle such changes. As always, I threw Will Smyth (DIG’s editor) some questions about it all. Continue reading and stay tuned to DIG BMX.

Photogallery: RIP Tulsa

TULSA MAIN PIC

Last month I was fortunate enough to partake in a journey with several of my friends to Tulsa, Oklahoma. I had originally proposed the idea a month or more before the trip occurred and did not hear anything about it until a few days before. It was a surprise to me that it was actually occurring.

Scotty Wemmer, Bobby Simmons and Rob DiQuattro had all journeyed to Columbus to meet up with Scott Marceau and myself. From there the five of us had headed down to Louisville, Kentucky to stay the night at Jordan Stump’s house. In the morning Phil Bossmeyer and Tyler “Kid” Rembold had shown up after they had worked all night. The Word Crew (Jordan, Phil and Tyler) all work third shift and had little rest for the 10 hour adventure we had ahead of us. The 8 of us packed up the bags and bikes and then headed out west.

The photos taken documented the entire trip; Hotels to hospitals and everything in between.

ALYK for A New York Thing

Act Like You Know. for A NEW YORK THING.

aNYthing is one of those brands that continually has some of the best/most obscure references in their clothing, dope cut and sew lines, and an amazing community of people creating work for the brand. ALYK. has always respected and liked aNYthing, so when we had the opportunity to do a look book it was a no-brainer.

Just down the block from Dah Shop and the Manhattan Bridge Skatepark, the aNYthing storefront is a rad place to check out the new gear, peruse the huge collection of zines, watch LES tweakers, eat dollar dumpings, and hang out front on the bench. The GLOB is always updated with parties, galleries, and weird shit to do in the City as well. So, even if you’re an OT cat you’ll be able to find something to do.

If you’re in NYC come through and say what’s up.

A NEW YORK THING. ALYK.

Photogallery: MacNeil North East Tour

A few months back the MacNeil team headed out to NYC to kick off a two week long tour. It had been years since the MacNeil team hit the East Coast and we decided to break up the trip into two cites. Boston and New York. Everyone flew into NYC and since the weather showed rain for the next week, we drove up to Boston to spend the first half of the trip. Boston was amazing and we rode so many dope spots. One of which was a random High School that ended up being about 20 yards from our hotel that some kid in a grocery store told us about… Huge thanks to Chris and Matty Long for all the other spot tips! After roaming around the city and suburbs for a week, chilling with Lino and the 90 East crew, and riding non-stop, we took a drive back down to New York.

We ended up stoping in Rhode Island for bit on the way back to NYC. We rode Brown University and got kicked out for hanging out in the grass, messed around at the capitol building (or what looked like some sort of capitol building), and watched Chris Silva drive himself to insanity trying some stuff on a flat rail.

Once we got back to NYC we returned the rental van and spend the rest of the trip pedaling around. Most of the guys on the team hadn’t been to New York before, so we spent our first day pedaling everywhere… From Brooklyn to Battery Park up to Time Square and back to Brooklyn. The week in NY feels like a bit of a blur, probably due to the fat that I live here and it’s always weird to be on a road trip in your own city. Big thanks to Torey Kish, Scott Marceau and Brandon Galosi as well as Edwin and Hoder for having out and riding with us.

Terrell Gordy was on the trip with us from Props and put together great edits from the trip. The whole thing turned into a three part series, the first two are online now and the third should be up soon. You can check them on the Props site here – Part 1 & Part 2.

The following photos are a mix of riding photos, snap shots and some iPhone stuff. There’s more pics from the Boston leg due to the fact that I was filming more when we were in NY. All in all, the trip was amazing and I had a great time with everyone on the MacNeil team -Dillon Lloyd, Greg Flag, Chris Silva, Chris Martindale and Taylor Elvy, who was new to the team and survived through his first trip! Hope you enjoy the photos and keep a look out for the third video on Props!

Disposed: Act Like You Know

The Act Like You Know DVD “Still Here” just dropped and to go along with the release, the crew put together a great Disposed series. You can pick up the DVD here and enjoy the photos!

“The majority of these photos are from the last three or four months of filming for our second full-length video, “Still Here.” We shot using a bunch of disposable cameras and a Holga. With there being literally hundreds of web videos released weekly, spending almost two years on a project seems like an eternity, and, at times, like it would never actually be finished. These are some of our favorite images that go hand and hand with clips or stories that made it into the video.

Appearing in the photos is Brandon Galosi, Bobby Simmons, Scott Marceau, Scotty Wemmer, Ryan Howard, Torey Kish, Jason White.”

Joe Simon iPhone 4 edit

Joe Simon posted a few photos of some spots on Twitter last night, then not to long after, said he was editing a iPhone 4 videos… I was kind of expecting some crazy setup with dollies and steady cam’s but Joe kept it simple, opting for grass and his keys as his camera support, while he grabbed a few clips at the 45th st ditch in Austin, TX. It’s going to be interesting to see how many iPhone 4 edits will pop up over the next few months. Will the iPhone become the new flipcam? Scott Marceau, where you at?
