Going Postal Show: Part 2

Underground Chinese Hip-hop Movement

Below is a refreshing lil video. Perhaps thats how hiphop used to be in zee America early on - fun and exciting. Now it seems like you have to get through thick layers of bullshit to get to anything worth while. Our resident DJ Vico da Dini aka C$izzle keeps the Itunes over here at C2D HQ bumping, but even then, we still have to filter for gems. I guess its a blessing and a curse, with such a over saturated and well developed market for the product we call hiphop. In China, it seems, its still all about beats and rhymes. The first track is kind of fresh too.


Create2Destroy x RockShox Prototype

Create2Destroy x RockShox Prototype Urban Jib Fork. What more can be said? We do alot of "firsts" here at C2D - thats what we do. Phsheeeet. Its ALL we do around here. Boom.
When RS approached us about doing a collabo with them on a Jib fork, we just blew it off - we're busy over here. But after second and third request we decided to look in to it. Turns out this urban bike freestyle activity is the eels elbows with the city kids. So we jumped on board. The fork features a custom C2D inspired paint/sticker job. Stanctions hoods made out italian leather. 9mm precision laser cut dropouts for new patented El Rapido Reliso wheel release system. 65mm of smooth as fuck travel. Basicaly the works. You got some Marz or Fox fork on your sled - cute, toss that shit. Cop one of these. Available soon for a measely price of a few hundred Starbucks lattes - $999, tax free.

Going Postal Show: Part 1

Went to a really awesome opening this friday. Great show. Great people. Great drinks. Great music. Everything was popping with color and freshness. Not often do I buy books at openings, but I did in this case and got it signed by Martha Cooper herself. Thumbs up with every extremity. Took alot of pictures, so this will be a 2 part post. Enjoy.


That New Hot Shit

Aint gotta say nothing. This is going to be the NEXT shit. Guaranteed!!!!

Redhook Ikea Anson aka "Yo Welli" Akshon

Anson and I went for a lil urban jib ride last weekend. The weather was amazing. The plan was to go to a local cement park, but it was still snowed in and wet, so we went elsewhere. Ikea built up these funky fresh fun wooden rollers - just for the hell of it, it seems. Its a real treat, that spot, without a doubt. We stunted on them for a bit, peep the digital captures.

The New Duffs - Brooklyn

For a while Duffs bar in Williamsburg on N3rd was the after ride fill up station. They have an outdoor patio, $1 PBRs, Caddy hearse and a huge Slayer posters front and center - pretty much everything you could want/need after jibbin the streets for hours and craving a refreshing beverage. I guess the place could have used a few strippers from Atlanta and free piff, but since they serve drinks and we're in NY full nudity wouldn't be allowed anyway so there is really no point to that. Forget that I mentioned anything about strippers from Atlanta. Aaaaanywho, the place is no more. It moved right next to the Macry Ave J train stop. Now it has no patio, but bikes are still allowed in, which is a bonus. Still cheap PBRs, but the decor definitely changed up a bit. It remains a choice spot, and it will definitely be frequented this spring and summer as we hit the streets in search of fresh new stunt locations. Enjoy the photo captures - it took our resident C2D photographer 3 or 4 cans of brew to get the lightning and composition just right. Perfect.

Can Someone Explain What This NY Post Cartoon Is Trying To Tell Me?

Cuz I know what it looks like, and it seems more like some Klan shit, not NY Post....

It was in today's NY Post. Seems pretty fucked up tho. So who are they comparing to the dead chimp? Obama, congress, those darn bill writers??? C'mon dude, are you just trying to be "edgy" and "controversial" along with "vague" and "confusing?" I mean, cmon, this is the Post. I would expect a New Yorker cartoon to go over my head but since the post is geared towards the idiot masses shouldn't this be a bit more straight forward? Comparing Obama to a rampaging chimp that gets shot seems like something some nazi skinheads would come up with to piss off their high school principal. Anysight on this? Is there something that I'm totally missing?

Party Time 2008

Fun. Do it. Boom.
