Brooklyn Parkour Playground

Autumn Night In Brooklyn

The Rumors Are Not True

Don't be fooled, the word on the street is that Donde past away. No one has heard from him in awhile and the C2D forums are buzzin. Did Curtis attack him out of jealous rage? Did he donate too many kidneys? Tall bike jousting fatality from bikekill 08? No worries folks.

Away in the South American rain forest collecting army ant juice was never on the schedule, but hey, it just happened. Once back in Brooklyn, whose gonna give em a job?


Hitler BMX

Few nights ago my producer Vicodeni the Jesus Don was in my lab cooking up some marvelous shit while his cuz J "The Gun" R and myself, Curtis ChoChorizo aka V Dumplings, were getting jiggy with it. The beat he cooked up was illmatic, as expected, but its the rhymes that shined. I busted out a sick freestyle in perfect German talking about this sick video I've seen on youtube. No one knew what i was talking about, so I decided to track it down and post it up. Shtroodle Straidzen Shtrayhel, Hitler A can Bloooom.


Empire trailer and the fun of biking

Man, i feel like a blog jacker today, but then again, thats like everyday so doesnt matter.
This flick seems like it has something to it. I dont ride fixed gear bikes, or even road bikes or a 10 speed.
My choice of a machine is a single speed MTB city killer convert, followed by a 24" mtbx cruiser murderer and a 20" Kink the Bastard. Each one of those machines is ill for one thing or another. Booyah.
But this trailer manages to capture the FUN of riding a bicycle (any bicycle) in the New York City. Its waaaay too much fun to just get going fast and catch traffic flow while hopping curbs, garbage bags, pedestrians, potholes, basement covers and alligator pits. Tweaking every little bump and hit to the best of your ability.

There is always time and place for cruising and chilling, but like anyone who ever rode with me knows, I love to go fast fast fast (as long as its in jeans/tshirt and not fully decked out in protective gear down a downhill trail, in which case i go slow slow ;) ).
Ahhhh, i miss riding, its been at least 18 hours since my last ride - and thats WAY too long.

Pharell's BMW Gangsta Track

Haters will hate, but i like this ride. The wheels might be a little over the top, but I would love to have one of these - must be a joy to ride.



GTA 4 gets a Trophy Patch October 27th

Long overdue, GTA 4 will finally get a trophy patch, even though its not retroactive. If you dont know what trophies are, Google can help you, but I'm definitely excited about this. I never finished GTA4 so starting over just to get all the trophies isn't THAT big of a deal for me - but if you're one of the people who beat EVERYTHING, this might be a bitch.
October 27th, Nico will arrive in NYC once again. Along with sackboy but thats a whole other story.

GTA IV Players Get Infected by Zombies

Attention Citizens,

There is a virus sweeping through Grand Theft Auto IV turning many unsuspecting players into Zombies. If you've seen the special Zombie-with-yellow-briefs player skin running around during Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer, then you may already know that the virus can be contracted in any and all multiplayer modes and is spread when an unsuspecting player kills someone who has the infection.

With the all-new Viral Infection feature at the Rockstar Social Club, members can now see whether they are currently infected, the number of total global infections and the number of infectinos in the last 24 hours. Digging deeper, Social Club members can also browse a color-coded world map tracking the spread of the infection worldwide, including breakdown for all 50 US States.


Bike Kill 2008

you know the deal - be there.

BMX Color Simulator

Fun lil application right here that lets you pick out colors of your new build. Its pretty neat if your a god damn bike nerd and need to color coordinate your metal. Bike Color Sim
Peep the samples....

***This one is dope too


Good Time To Be A Gamer

Hay Zee Vid

I been playing this Hay Zee stuff on Hip Hop Ain't Dead for a few weeks now. Nice little vid to go along with it.


Home Made Fisheye Project

A lil while back we mentioned how to make your own fisheye.

Well, we went to work over here at C2D laboratory, and we came up with something.
The prototype is in very early stages so it can't be shown, but these shots were taken with a simple point and shoot Sony - and look at the fisheye/wideangle sweetness!
Fish eye all day - cant wait to get some sweet sweet action shots with this puppy. :)



Yes, what looks to be an official release from Rockstar, GTA Casablanca will be hitting the shelves and Arabic forum sites everywhere. Quite the comeback right on the heels of GTA4, but this does look promising.

Anyone brave enough to trust the download can give it a shot, not sure if its a video or a game or what though.

Some fresh new Vans

Check these out, they look kind of nice. The black ones are classy, but the blue ones might be some fun shoes to bike in. Not sure what the story behind these is, but they have cogs/chain and such on the back - neat. Never had Vans before, and I think I'm about ready. Perhaps I should get both? :)

Saw this at DQM - going to give them a visit this afternoon...

Belly vs Belly 2 (Millionaire Boyz Club)

When my boy Vico the Don told me there is a sequel to Belly I must admit I got pretty excited. As far as hiphop movies go - Belly was the ultimate. Crisp, vivid, on point. It was a 2 hour long music video by Hype Williams, and we all know that dude loves his poppy colors and quick shots. The sound track was fire, hiphopsters turned actors were nice (lets not forget Nas, DMX, Method, AZ and Tboz to name the main ones), plus the plot was alright. That scene at the QB Projects where Nas reenacts that ill verse from "One Love" ....

(I sat back like the mack, my army suit was black
We was chillin' on these benches where he pumped his loose cracks
I took an l when he passed it, this little bastard
Keeps me blasted he starts talking mad shit.....
....Only twelve trying to tell me that he liked my style
Then I rose, wiping the blunts ash from my clothes
Then froze only to blow the herb smoke through my nose)

Damn... that scene was fuckin dope.

The movie was ridiculous. Before I lived in NYC, i remember going to the city with my boy, just so we can drive through middle of Times Square 3 in the mo while burning l's - just on the strength of a scene from a movie (i wasn't sure if i should admit this or not).

But then, a decade later Belly 2 happens.
Now I dont know what possessed The Game (who's music I quite like) to dust off a nice, simple hiphop movie and destroy it by attaching his crappy flick to its title. Believe me, i wanted to like it, but if you expect it to be ANYTHING like Belly, dont bother.

Above i present the two trailers - Belly and Belly 2. The first 20 seconds of the Belly 2 trailer - Oh Sweet Jumpin Jesus. Is he serious. To a person who doesnt care, i could see how both of these movies might look like shit. But to those who care, and those who loved Belly, this second effort is a joke. I dont even know why its called Belly 2, it has NOTHING to do with the original story/location/actors/ideas, anything. I expected something really bad, and I presumed that TI, lil Wayne, Rick Ross, perhaps Dipset will be in this movie. But at least that would have been a bit entertaining to watch them rappers squirm on screen. Its as if the makers of Saw 5 would have named that film Pulp Fiction 2 to try to get unsuspecting people to check it out.
Plus it went straight to DVD, and we all know what that means.
If you care enough here is the link to Belly 2 on youtube.

Post - Brooklyn BMX Shop

A great shop. They might not have some specific part that you need, but what parts they do have are quality. Its headed by Edwin DeLarosa, who's a really nice dude and a ridiculous rider. Customer service is proper, and if you're nice they just might let you ride the ramp in the back of the shop. Its located on N1st and Bedford.
This lil video summarizes it pretty nicely. Keep up the good work!

Editors Note: Shop has since moved to 257 Varet street in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Tonic Fab to sponsor Create2Destroy?

Could we possibly become the first blog to be sponsored by a bike company? Will Tonic become the first bike company to sponsor a blog? Probably not, but hope dies last. Who knows what the future holds. Sure...... sure we make the big bucks over here at C2D, but THAT kind of beauty dont come cheap and we need all the help we can get. Want us to rename the blog to Tonic Central? No problem! Want us to shower the tri-state with Tonic panphlets and propaganda? EZ Doez It. Perphaps you'd like to go ahead with that Create2Destroy X Tonic Fab X New Era fitted and a matching plastic robot? Bandabing Badaboom.

ALL of THAT - for one of these. Or maybe just a Tonic Tshirt (to review of course). Or perhaps 5 bucks off. Fingers crossed.

Art. Tacos. GWB. Wizzard. Mud. Bike. Fun.
