Shoutout to Act Like You Know.
Act Like You Know is a group of like-minded people that I strongly believe in. I am not just saying this because I am affiliated with them either. For us it is a mixture of passion and hatred that keep us going. For me personally a lot of riding I see these days is all the same or just lacking any real substance. Riding around and scouring through cities is one of my favorite things to do. That has been a huge part of riding for me since I can remember.
Everyone involved in this project brings something unique to the table. No one involved settles for mediocrity when it comes to spot usage. If something is whack then we let the other person know.
Cop fresh gear here. Everything is on point.
aNYthing recently worked with BMX crew Act Like You Know. – on a lookbook showing some of aNYthing’s Spring gear, as well as ALYK’s new collection. The lookbook was done to coincide with the release of Act Like You Know’s third DVD – filmed over the last 3 years – and the release of aNYthing’s Spring line. Both are available on respective websites.
aNYthing has always stood for people doing their own thing – and we are pleased to say that the Act Like You Know. crew are part of our family and we fully support their creative endeavors. Since day one, Act Like You Know. has been about creating a way of their own for their friends, building a genuine aesthetic, and doing it all themselves. Using a completely DIY mentality – their 3rd, completely independent, full length BMX video – NO DAYS OFF! – just released on Monday. DVD’s are accompanied with a full-color newsprint zine, made in Queens, NY. The Act Like You Know. clothing was designed with the help of Omens (MSK/Villians), Soviet (NSF), Curve (NSF/ TGE) and Lil Kool. In their 9 year history, Act Like You Know. has accomplished and produced more that most companies with a legit budget, and they show no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Scotty Wemmer is a man of work. Whether it is behind the scenes or in front of the camera Scotty puts his all into what he does. His originality never ceases to amaze me.
Check out his video part from Act Like You Know's “Still Here” that was released in January 2011.
“Our Southern Ohio cats doing great things right before the Midwest winter takes grasp of Ohio. Troy Tunney and Kyle Murway are going to have amazing full parts in the newest volume of ALYK.; No Days Off.
Don’t get it twisted though, this web video idea won’t be a regular occurrence for the crew, as well as the use of an HD camera. It was just a glitch in the matrix. Expect a trailer for the newest release from ALYK. early 2012.”

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.
