Deuce showed me this and I had to repost it. I was laughing the whole time so I’m going to give you the keys to the Lamborghini. Enjoy.

This video is (or will be) on every bmx site, but I’m going to post it up anyhow. Drew Bezanson disassembling the new Joyride 150 park in Toronto:

The only catch is, you have to be a fan of us and not be a part of The Least Most editorial team. Thanks, I’ll be back to making weird posts that don’t really mean anything later this week.

Comic book characters battling rappers? Nerds and hip-hop heads rejoice!
This is from Philadelphia’s Last Emperor who I think is one of the most underrated MCs of all time. Just listen to his verses in the form of other rappers’ styles. This kind of creativity and skill shows real hip-hop is alive and well so don’t hate the player hate the game.

No that’s not the name of the next FBM video, but it could be. This is the story of Thomas Bruso also known as Epic Beard Man “whose belligerence has become a worldwide phenomenon”. I thought most bmxers would get a kick out of this guy. Seen on buzzfeed.com. I love crazy people.

No epic pans and zooms, no instrumental “jams”, just sweet trail riding from Dusty Sampson in the seemingly healthy riding scene that is Santa Cruz, California. Jackson Allen threw this one together and I’m psyched to see what else he has in store for the BMX internet world. To see more from this scene and one of the most consistently updated sites on the web visit Sasquatch Canyon.
And speaking of legends like Sasquatch, when I googled Chris Eimen’s name a recent comment on The Come Up was the first thing to, well, come up. I must say it’s a very “legend” comment to make, if it was in fact him. Chris Eimen, along with other Seattle BMXers, were featured heavily in the Jan/Feb 1998 issue of SNAP Magazine.
Also riding those Seattle trails in the same issue was the Lumberjack himself, Mr. Gary Ellis who had a great interview in that issue. The Lumberjack surprised many with photos of him 360ing doubles and performing other jumping variations. If I recall correctly he was wearing flannel. I can’t recall if this was post mullet days.
Here, Gary Ellis proves he is actually a Lumberjack with his apparent affinity for wood. We also see that BMX Media men were just as awkward then as they are now. Except replace sweaters and scarfs with neon tee shirts from ironic USA tourist traps. The best Holeshot of the week indeed.

A new resource for video nerds (like me) just popped on the interwebz: The BMX Movie Database. Anyone can register & add their favorite videos to the site, and even upload sections if approved by the filmmaker. High zoot action…

I just found a copy of “Secret Treaties” by Blue Oyster Cult that I didn’t even know I owned. Someone, presumably me, paid a buck for it at a local record store. That for me is one of the best reasons to own a turntable-getting shit on the cheap, and in such mass quantity that it might take years for my ears to catch up. I was so moved by my discovery that I smoked some resin that I stole from my band’s practice space(sorry bros!) through a 7/32″ deep well socket and put this bitch on.
You might know Blue Oyster Cult from the songs that get lots of classic rock radio play, namely “Don’t Fear the Reaper”, “Godzilla”, and “Burnin’ for You”. As is usually the case, rock radio left out all the good stuff. There is a lot more to this band than those songs, so let me tell you a little about “Secret Treaties”.
This is the third record from B.O.C, released in 1974. My favorite part of any record these guys have done are the song titles, and “Secret Treaties” certainly has that covered. The opening track, co-written with Patti Smith is called “Career of Evil”., and the winners just keep coming with “Subhuman”, and “Dominance and Submission”. Side Two has the highlight for me, a song fearlessly titled “Harvester of Eyes” that I would also consider to be the most “B.O.C.” sounding track on the album. On that topic, let me get into what that sound sounds like.
I hesitate to use the term protometal, mostly because it reveals how much of a music dork I am, but it is rather accurate. There are loads of great riffs with great guitar tones, lyrics leaning so heavily on fantasy that it makes you want to paint a Frank Frazetta on a van you don’t even have, and enough self-awareness to not take it too seriously. And let’s not forget, this slab only set me back a mere dollar, and I’m saying big win on this one.
