This video is so sick! I can’t even imagine filming or editing this thing together with all those macro shots. It may not be your style of tunes, but you gotta admire some badass filmmaking. Also, the orchestral sample in the song is from the end credits of 80′s mob movie on Al Capone The Untouchables…bonus points for that one.
Shadow Conspiracy and The Hundreds are collaborating to build a custom bike from the ground up for a limited release. This stop motion video got me super psyched and was done so damn well!
Nick Ferreira is back with some new printed goods in the form of “Let’s Go Get Cokes”.
Let’s Go Get Cokes is a 24 page, 8.25″x10.5″, full-color artists’ book in the style of bmx and skate magazines from the early 1990′s. The glossy and well-worn photographs by an anonymous artist (a former pro-BMXer) are of skateboarders and BMXers – kids hanging out and learning tricks for the first time. The faces in the photos are unclear or cropped out, allowing the viewer to imagine their own adolescence.
Click below for some sample pics and go HERE to pick one up.
