So I’m not sure if I am a fan of this collection so far, but this is a very cool and creative way to show your collection!
“Always bright and colorful, influenced by urban culture and inflected with a little bit of ’80s flair, the collection includes brand mainstays such as graphic-printed tees and heavily-patterned outerwear. Increasing their range of products, however, Cassette Playa has also transferred their trademark all-over screen prints to a variety of products as evidenced by the visual exploration.” – Hypebeast
Watch and enjoy!

“It’s Better in the Wind” is a 15 minute short film that puts you in the saddle and behind the handle bars of what being a true “motorcyclist” is all about. Scott Toepfer takes us on an adventure through the western part of the United States, with his friends and family. Their journey was filmed and set to an original track, that Scott and his friend, Chuck Ragan collaborated on.
“I have been slowly editing the footage into a visual scrapbook of sorts for those who partook, and those who followed us via the web. No preaching the triumphs and failures of the motorcycle industry, no divisive commentary between manufacturers and styles…just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities.” – Scott Toepfer
This film is the embodiment of what riding a motorcycle is all about! Traveling down the open rode into a new future, as the wind purifies your soul. Leaving the past in the dust… only to see as far back as your mirrors will allow. There is no better feeling then coming home from a LOOOONG DAYS work and jumping on those two wheels to forget about the days problems and discover a new adventure.
(I know…I know, this video has been out since Halloween and I’m late but I was very impressed with it and figured I’d throw it up here for the people who have not seen it yet.)
“Maniac” is a short film directed by Shia LaBeouf (Yes, the main actor from “Transformers” and numerous other films). It was inspired by a Kid Cudi track called “Maniac”, hence the name and in my opinion was very well done. The film takes place in an urban setting, with a film crew documenting and following 2 serial killers (one of the serial killers being played by Kid Cudi) as they go on their violent killing spree. The film, tho very violent and graphic, is very promising and has a lot of potential to be made into a feature film. I loved everything that the film had to offer, from the black an white-esque style that it was shot in, the French narrative, the acting, and even the awesome twist at the end.
Here is Kid Cudi explaining how he prepared for the role.
“When it came time to shoot, it was as real as possible and you were scared of this character. I literally transformed into this person. I didn’t talk much on set, didn’t crack many jokes, I kept to myself.
“It was really cold out there when we were filming in Detroit. We were in the middle of a blizzard and I kind of used that [Laughs.] to add to the character. I tried to become the scariest individual that I could possibly think of.”
CHECK IT OUT AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!?
WARNING…It gets pretty violent.
