Kidult Strikes Back

Kidult x MR Brainwash from eric on Vimeo.
Spotted on The Nite Visions

Kidult's boldness never ceases to amaze me.  A huge extinguisher piece on a major street in broad daylight holding an extinguisher filled with bright pink paint wearing a skeleton mask.  How he eludes the police is beyond me.  Mad props and we are definitely over Mr. Brainwash, he was cool for about a month but I really don't see any originality there.  I'm also a huge fan of DJ shadow and Mos Def, such a dope track.

ECCC Nittany Cycling Classic: Frat Row Criterium


Two of my friend's teammates had these Lynskey Helix frames. They are SO DOPE. The twisted titanium is out of control and probably bomb proof too.

Before It really started raining.

Today was the Frat Row Criterium, which is the second half of the Nittany Cycling Classic. Although I did not participate it was undoubtedly an exciting event. The course had an obscene amount of sharp turns and seeing how it is always raining in State College there were way too many crashes. Racers were sliding all over the road with more wrecks than I could even count. Unfortunately I didn't see the end of women's A/B or the men's A because one of my good friends was one of the riders injured in a crash. Honestly I think they should have postponed the race. When people start breaking bones left and right it seems reason enough to me.  Anyway I'm glad I got to check out the race and my brain is still on bike pron overload.

Photos By ilkflottante.

As I was scrolling through my News Feed this morning I could not help but stop and stare at the unbelievable work of REVERT capture by ilkflottante.  As the ever-growing graffiti and "street art" scene becomes more mainstream I feel it is becoming harder and harder to do something completely unique.  Although I am no expert when it comes to graffiti, I can safely say the work REVERT is doing is nothing like I have ever seen before.  These two pieces are just stupid, the amount of detail pretty much blew me off of my chair and his style is so rad.  If anyone knows if he has a blog/website or flickr let me know because I would love to check it out!

What Can I Do? from Rayyiu Radzi on Vimeo.

I spotted this a few days ago on Tracko and although I definitely agree that he could use some drops, this is the kind of video I live for.  Just good old fashion mashing; flying through the streets with your legs going a mile a minute. Super stoked on this video and definitely looking forward to more in the future from Rayyiu Radzi.

On another note, the weather is FINALLY starting to get nice up here and with the wrist feeling better, I should be doing a bit of mashing of my own in the near future.  Cheers!

Healin' and Dealin'


A while back I fell off my bike, for a few weeks I thought it was just sprained but it turned out that I broke my Scaphoid. MAJOR BUMMER.  On a lighter note, after a bone graft and a screw everything is healing up nicely.  I have been itching to get back on my bike; not being able to ride SUCKS.  Once the weather starts to get nice up here I don't know what I'm going to do!

Justin Gallagher's 2011 Demo Reel

Justin Gallagher | 2011 DEMO REEL - WIP from Justin Gallagher on Vimeo.
Spotted on Prolly

San Francisco native Justin Gallagher recently released this unbelievable demo reel and I couldn't stand not to re-post it.  The cycling parts are awesome (I wouldn't expect anything less after his stint with Mash SF's Chas Christiansen) and that's only the half of it.  There are a bunch of amazing shots and the soundtrack is perfect.  I haven't seen too much of his work but after this one there is no doubt that I'll be checking it out.  STOKED.
