This new Banksy street art film is starting to open across the country. It’s already out in NY, LA, & SF, and comes to other major cities next week. I’m definitely going to check it out in Philly. There’s a bit of controversy buzzing that some of the footage is staged, but that should only make it more interesting.
Jared Souney has a pretty strong background, in photography, BMX and design, This pic of Snotty is poached off his Site, and you can find a lot more awesomeness over there, check it out!
I can’t claim to be the hugest Type-O-Negative fan on earth, but musical tastes aside, I have to at least respect a guy who made it on Beavis & Butthead, the Jerry Springer Show, and even posed for Playgirl in his lifetime. That right there is more than the rest of us will ever do. RIP dude.
There’s a new online zine in town called Fairdale, brought to you by the folks at Odyssey and masterminded by Taj and Roscoe.
There’s already a handful of interesting posts. I personally enjoyed Taj’s take on packaging design. Fairdale is definitely worth adding to your daily internet rounds.
A FBM ramp jam, BBQ, stump jump, live music and beverage enjoying event went down this past weekend. We’re working on a short edit of the festivities for the Least Most, but in the meantime here’s a few still grabs to hold you over.
Gary Ginch used this wall to generate enough speed to get a bird’s eye view of the James River and win $50 in the process
Prashant Gopal is a very talented dude out of Ottawa, Canada. In addition to running Capital BMX for many years, he also produces Yo, Sick zine. Prashant was kind enough to send copies Yo, Sick our way and they are all fun reads.
If you want to get your own copy, get in touch with Prashant over at Capital BMX. He sends out Yo, Sick for free, but trades for zines and other cool things are always welcome. Make sure you hit up www.capitalbmx.net for some lo-fi and hi-fi awesomeness.

Too Much Mat Hoffman? A pic from 23 years ago, on his first Skyway tour (Giberson Photo), and the beloved Souney pic from the weekend, I just wanted to run a quick comparison! Thank you Mat, for being Awesome!
We first broke the news that Mat Hoffman was attempting to ride again, and this past weekend at the 2010 Old School BMX Reunion, the Condor once again took flight, this time on a real BMX bike. You can check out a story with a great lookback pic on Jared Souney’s site. Welcome back!
