Gunther Holtorf and “Auto”:
Collapsing into the Whatever
Right here on The Least Most, we’ve been honored to have Matt Coplon contribute a collection of short stories electronically bound as Boredom Diaries. Over the past year, Matt has been editing these stories to be bound in a more tangible format.
This week Matt shared that his book of these short stories, titled “Collapsing into the Whatever”, is complete and in-hand. If you’re interested in a copy of “Collapsing into the Whatever”, contact Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The bar Matt sets for himself is very high and finishing this project was surely no small feat. If you’ve enjoyed the Boredom Diaries, you should definitely reach out to Matt about getting your hands on this book.
As if completing the book wasn’t enough, Matt also put together a great edit to celebrate the book’s release:
Matt is awesome, regardless of the delivery mechanism.read more

BEAT ASS: On the road with the Lords of Fun
A travelogue documentary featuring the third “Lords of Fun” motorcycle road trip… a 3-day, full throttle celebration of bikes, fire, stunts, Chihuahuas, freedom and FUN!
Directed by Fraser Byrne (@fraserbyrne)
Lords of Fun 3 Photo Overspill
As a supplement to BEATASS, the tale of Lords of Fun 3, we’ve put together a short gallery of trip photos for your perusal.
BEAT ASS: Lords of Fun 3 Preview
The original Lords of Fun trip took place in January 2008 with a motorcycle, bmx, side car trip through Virginia and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. A few years later, Lords of Fun 2 followed a similar course, adding a green limo and a moped for good measure.
This year, for Lords of Fun 3, the limo was swapped for a black school bus and a chihuahua. A gang of misfits from all over the country met up in Richmond, Virginia and headed south into the rain in search of open roads, concrete transitions, burn barrels and good times.
Fraser Byrne of Make Your Bones flew across the Atlantic to film the adventure and has put together a documentary covering the characters, the intention, and the antics of the trip. Take a look at the trailer to prepare yourself for the full-length release on Friday, December 13th.
Korey Kryder captured some great photos from the road that are used throughout the film. Check out a few choice shots…

Let’s Go Get Cokes
My first exposure to BMX came from two small books in my elementary school’s library and a short video segment about freestyle on Reading Rainbow. Flashy vector graphics and neon colors wrapped around this new-to-me thing called freestyle. I still look back fondly at the visual styles that surrounded those years of fascination and attempts to perfect my rock walk.
“Let’s Go Get Cokes” is Nick Ferreira’s latest publication under the Amigos Publishing umbrella. Featuring “well-worn” photos from an anonymous former BMX pro, “Let’s Go Get Cokes” is framed with visual inspiration from early 90s BMX magazines. If you have any appreciation for this time period in BMX, I think you’ll enjoy the read. Check out the Amigos online store to order a copy.read more
