|:| Reds Up |:|

Sign me up.

|:| Machinehead |:|

I must admit, the characters don't really do it for
me but the background works are pretty stunning
in these short animations by Tokyo Plastic.

|:| Blowup Jacket |:|

There is quite a twist to these windrunner-esque
jackets by Sander Reijgers, seeif you can spot it.

|:| Stylistics #2 |:|

Oye Oye.

|:| Good With Wood |:|

How can you not fail to like enjoy the craft and
workmanship that Carlos Alberto put into this
Vespa. Amazing work.

Remi sent this nice pic from some recent Agents Of
movements over in Berlin. There is also a video
to accompany it here.

|:| Stylistics #1 |:|

A new addition with a more general overview of people
I think have good style, in whatever they do.

First up, BP. Skate to create.

*There is no order to this really, the numbers are as I
do them - they all have steez*

|:| The Rulers Back |:|

"Rules" is the new album by The Whitest Boy Alive and
comes out in March. I know I'm not the only one happy
with this news.

*The 'tini gave the heads up on this*

|:| Why Don't You |:|

There are some nice little videos to on the Nike site to
accompany the release of Beautiful Losers. They feature
a whole host of talented folks who are involved in the film.
I think you can guess the subject.

|:| Maximum |:|

A new Air Max from Nike, the Skyline is actually quite
nice looking and a bit of a break form the constant re-releasing.

No words.

|:| Industry Standard |:|

is the new documentary by Gary Hustwit
who created the Helvetica doc.
This one is about industrial design and looks at the
creativity at work behind loads of products.
Featuring contributions from Marc Newson and
Paola Antonelli as well as a host of others it looks
well worth checking when it's premiered in March.

|:| 100 |:|

Converse have created 1000 books containing a
pair of shoes to celebrate the 100th anniversary
of the Canvas All Star.
Each of the books contains a pair of shoes and
the book details the history of the Canvas All
Star brand, and along the theme of "Star".
It also has interviews by 100 of today's biggest stars with
the interview/conversations being undertaken by 100
creatives picked by Converse. Looks interesting and
the packaging is different.

Interesting little Flickr group titled ::

Growing Up Star Wars: 1977-1985

I think you can guess the subject.

|:| Made In Brittain |:|


I just read an article from the good guys at Mumble which
is a nice profile of photographer Grant Brittain. His work
in skateboarding runs deep and it's well worth checking
some of the pics.

*The above is a young Tony Hawk*

|:| All Turned To Mush |:|

Record label MUSH have been around and so as a little
treat they are giving away this mix.
It has a bunch of talents and even has Saafir on one, hopefully
he is still good. Anyway, it's worth a peek.

|:| The Devil's Point |:|

Another link I should have already posted was this one to
a fine wee film of some skateboarding in Aberdeen (and
Glasgow too). Featuring the likes of John Rattray, Callum
Barrack, Benson and Div & Colin Adam it's all crafted by
Alex Craig and so both footage and filming are smashing.
Check it out here.

|:| MiTunes #9 |:|

I have not done one of these in a long time so here is what
iTunes felt was suitable for playing as I posted the items below.

1. Clarence "Frogman" Henry - "Ain't Got No Home"
2. Justin Warfield - "Fisherman's Grotto"
3. Cat Power - "Say"
4. TV On The Radio - "Shout Me Out"
5. The Hello People - "Wheat Germ"

I'm sure the Florida traffic department are still curious as
to where thousands of shoes appeared from on one of
their highways the other day. No matter where they came
from it held up the traffic for a while and I'll bet a few people
went raking around to see what was amongst the piles.
The full story is here.

|:| Stay Focused |:|

Focus recently released an new design by my friend
Tommy which featured an illustration of Glasgow's
Kinning Park banks. Hook yourself one up here.

|:| Just In Case |:|

Incase have put up some desktop wallpapers from their
recent release with Arkitip featuring art by Dutch master Parra.
Check them here.

|:| 2D3D |:|

So it seems Apple have been patenting several items lately
including an interesting "Multidimensional" user interface.
You know I like to keep most of my posts brief so luckily a
good explanation exists here. Check out the future now.

And I hope it is spectacular for all.
