Poetry in motion.

July 23, 2011

I watched part of this movie two years back at my favorourite local independent and soon after I left the establishment I forgot about it. Until now.

In an exploration of the abstract and the extreme, Second Nature is an examination of the natural boundaries of the human body. Noah Sakamoto, Patrick Rizzo and J.M. Duran star as the test subjects as they wield skateboards and blue suits to race down the roads of the High Sierras in California.

Lack of cycling aside, watch it, all of it. It is pure, 600% poetry in motion.

Vans Supercorsa Italian Cycles.

March 24, 2010

A model which saw an introduction into the Vans Vault roster last season, the Supercorsa makes an appearance yet again, this time as part of the Vans California Collection. Presented within Vans’ “Italian Cycles” Collection, this new pack showcases the Supercorsa in an all-canvas motif, with each colorway representing specific honors per Italian cyclists. Featured is the white jersey (Best Young Rider), Rose (Leader-Champion), Green (King of the Mountains), Pink (Best Sprinter), and black (Last Place). Look for these to drop in July of 2010.

Looking good. Via Hypebeast.

This one is up there with some of the nicest ‘classic’ track frames.
Plus I have an absolute soft spot for the chosen colour combo as some of you may know… Red and Chrome. Mmmmmmm Delicious!

“The “DiFisso” project rises in Autumn 2007 from the passion and commitment of three friends, as synthesis of all the ideas collected during a trip in the south of California. It was in Newport Beach where we got in touch with the track bike culture for the first time. DiFisso track frames aim to mix the Californian culture and “easy going” mood, with the accuracy, on-going research and focus on “total quality” proper of Italian handicraft tradition. The combination of these two seemingly opposite elements gives unespected results: the manufacturing, completely handmaded, makes each frame a unique piece. The goal is to create, every single time, a product that reflects at best the personality and the needs of our customers: a custom-tailored frame always different to the others producted, but with its own recognizable style.”
