SECRET SOUND UNDERGROUND

Jack Coleman has been creating tripped out, psychedelia-drenched surf films for a few years now. His work appears fairly iconoclastic when thought of in comparison to the industry “film” standard of today. 


WAITING OUT WINTER

waitingweinter

Winter is rough. Especially if you’re obsessed with riding motorcycles. The countdown to better weather kicks in sometime in early December and lasts until March. But every so often global warming throws us a bone. Today is that day. It’s 53 degrees as of the writing of this post and as soon as I hit […]


A STORM TO REMEMBER

storm

Sometimes it’s better to let things sink in before trying to write or speak about them. Often,  when I speak or write quickly, without letting my spiraling thoughts align in my head, I don’t express myself the right way. In fact,  I sometimes just blurt out some dumb ass shit. I’m sure many of you […]

GET CUT AT RUDY’S BARBERSHOP IN NYC

rudys

This is a nice little video vignette on Rudy’s Barbershop at the Ace Hotel in NYC. We especially like the designers use of re-purposed materials that give the space a lived in, historic feel. Take a trip, get a cut, stay the night, etc, etc, etc.

THE DAY PRO SURFER DONAVON FRANKENREITER SURFED ASBURY

Capture.JPG

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy and the mess it caused on the Asbury boardwalk, we’re only really interested in thinking about the way things were before the storm came ashore. Call it denial. Whatever. In all honesty the boardwalk fared quite well despite the flooded out restaruants and storefronts and jacked up parts of the boardwalk. Madison Marquette […]
