Standard Hotel x PK Ripper


The Standard Hotel, which is some Washington Street rich tourist bullshit has gotten a fleet of "standard hotel pk rippers" for their guests to play fixed gear on. Some reason this annoys me. They do at least have brakes.

honey living: picking up the pieces

Heres an excerpt from some other blog that i thought was pretty funny. didnt end the way i had expected.

"there was a lot of activity in the crosswalk right outside grand central station - not unusual, but just enough of a flurry to catch my attention. and what i saw made me feel warm all over. a bike messenger had been knocked over and lost hold of his bag, which was apparently full of thousands of pieces of paper, and they were blowing all over the place - some were already several blocks away. my heart immediately sunk, realizing there was no way he'd recover them all. i wanted to cry for him. and for everyone and everything, because it was that kind of mood i was in, as you might remember.

but there in the crosswalk in midtown manhattan in rush hour on a friday night, a dozen passersby were running around picking up the pieces. literally.

and it hit me like a ton of bricks - unsink your heart and get moving. i joined the passersby, and i picked up the pieces i could catch up to, and the messenger's face as each person handed him the windblown, crumpled slips of paper spoke volumes.

some people would say "only in new york," but i disagree - i think people everywhere are good and kind and giving. now the bike messenger being knocked over by a rushing pedestrian? THAT might be only in new york

we're all in this together"
Now if you expand that picture, you can see the papers he dropped were Elite Courier Job Tickets. I hope they werent already filled out. I dont recognize the bike and im glad everyone is ok. Come to think of it though, noone really helps me when i bust my ass on the street... what the hell


oh no

I heart Huckabees.

 
I am 90% sure this guy hangs around downtown firehouses and then continually beats them to the scene of fires. Pretty Amazing. Im not sure if hes a real FireFighter.

MISHKA 5 PANEL NEW ERA CAP








































This is pretty dope. For those that dont remember, 5 panel hats were and still are a NY style from the early 90s. The flat brimmed style was called "baltimore style", and noone really did it here until the skaters picked it up. Peep Wu Tang and any old Zoo York stuff youll always see those guys in the 5 panel. I like this one bc its black like outer space.

Its icy out so here you go!



This is Lucas Brunelle with a really awesome video. One of the first guys to accurately film the energy behind alleycat races. He consistently finishes with the first place rider of all major alleycats in order to film the win. Its really amazing. Check some of his work here with some of the old school messengers.
