This appears to be Jeremy Deme’s new project. Basically everything he’s done has been rad, so keep an eye on it. Here’s the first video from the site, featuring Jordan Hango.

Some extra stuff I filmed that’s not going in the Fat Trax video.

two great things

I came home to two nice surprises on the internet. One you’ve all seen by now. The other most of you haven’t, but you’ve heard the song if you read this blog.

I stole these off of facebook because they’re crazy. Enfield went to the lot in Middletown today and RJ decided he was Garrett Byrnes. Photos by Seth and Horak.

Dave and I both took a break from parenting to head out to Wethersfield this morning. Wethersfield is a great park, it flows really nicely and for its size there is a lot there. Sometimes I’ll go there and just ride the pool, because it’s the weirdest thing there and probably the most fun.

holeshot 8

I picked up a copy of Holeshot from Fat Trax the other day and it’s awesome. I’ve been a fan of Nic Ferreira’s brand of bmx journalism since he blogged at In the Gnar, but I’m pretty sure Holeshot has been around a lot longer than that. Nic has a great, down to earth perspective on riding; it comes through pretty nicely in Holeshot. They’re four bucks, I recommend it.

Two clips. They’re pretty good, I just had to cut them to fit the song.

expendable youth

Have you checked out the BMX Movie Database yet?
They posted the Terrible One section from Expendable Youth, which was one of my favorite videos back in the day. At the time I was really into the P.U.S.H. trails. I bought Tweakers used from a bike shop in Calgary and there was a Ride article memorializing the trails right about the same time. In that article, they mentioned that Expendable Youth would contain the last footage ever shot there (they were plowed in ’98) so I immediately started bugging the local bike shop to get a couple of copies in. This section was amazing at the time, and the entire video opened up a whole new world of trails that weren’t anything like the sets around the Okanagan.

Caleb made this video over the summer. It reminds me of the Shellac album where Steve Albini plays the same riff for like eight minutes before getting into the song. Caleb is a super nice dude. I laughed when he was befriending the nurse and patient because based on the one time we met, that’s exactly what I would envision him doing in a situation like that. Caleb’s videos are always a little bit outside the box, and this is a format I’ve never seen. I think it works really well in this context. The robot voice is a nice touch as well.
