…It’s Movie Monday: Surface?

Surface

Surface is an experimental film, exploring the emotional journey from an underground urban perspective.

This ‘urban symphony’ transforms human actions and street objects into beats that harmoniously compose a grand audio and visual composition. The film emphasizes the ideas of ‘point of contact’, ‘human identity’ and notion of ‘live footprints’.

…It’s Things Thursday: Theory11 Playing Cards?

Theory11 Playing Cards

Theory11, the ‘underground magic & cardistry epicenter’ has created a line of playing cards that are simply unparalleled.

Lines include Propaganda (Playing cards uniquely engineered to military precision, with original, iconic style and unsurpassed quality. A refreshing, industrial spin on modern playing card design with a best in class feel and finish.) Bicycle Centurions (the next standard in playing card design) Bicycle Guardians (The traditional Bicycle back design has been reborn.) and a collaboration with David Blaine called Split Spades, and each is more stunning than the next.

If you’re a poker player, magician, or just someone that wants a little extra design in everything you touch, then definitely check out what Theory11 has to offer, but do it soon, because these cards just might vanish before your very own eyes.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Formula Drift?

On Saturday, I had the chance to go and see Formula D’s “The Finals” at Irwindale Speedway (yes, I did get stuck on Interstate 5 on the way down from San Francisco due to that massive accident), and I must say, if you’re at all a fan of the four wheeled machine, make sure you check out one of Formula Drift’s events at a track near you.

Pontiac Solstice

If you’re not familiar with the sport, think of drifting as two automotive ballerinas battling it out in a boxing match. It’s gracefully controlled mayhem, and in my opinion, it’s easily the best form of four-wheeled entertainment on the planet.

…Fixie bikes are unstoppable?

Fixie

The New York Times put together a great piece on the ‘unstoppable’ trend of fixies, or fixed geared bicycles. Designed for the track, these bikes, favorited for years by messengers and hipsters, have no breaks and no gears, and are stopped by an artful combination of reversing the pedals, skidding, or skip stopping. Their purity is their appeal, as the fixed gear bike has become both a fashion statement and a demonstration of skill. With the New York Times covering it though, I think that the fixies are going to have to come out of their underground hiding and into the spotlight as more and more people jump on the single speed bandwagon.
