Prepare for some intense mountain biking done from the seat at you computer. First person downhill madness:
Dang mang, that shit is friggin ludicrous. Part two was just way too gnarley to imagine actually dropping in on most of those chutes. Fuck that.
First off: No, they could not have picked a lamer ‘chorus’ to include in this remix. Fuckin gay. BUT, this dude has got his poppin and lockin down like underground. Peep Marquese Scott breakin it the fuck down:
It’s crazy how dubstep seems to have sparked a bigass fire under pop/lockin. For quite a while, breakin was mostly about the ground moves and power moves. Bein a fan of the poplock, it’s cool to see the shit progressing like it is. With over 3 million views, I guess neither dubstep or breakin are ‘underground’ like just a few years ago. I’m sure there will be a weak teen movie soon to follow.
Dancer: Marquese Scott
Lame ass song: Pumped Up Kicks – Foster The People
Remixed: “Butch Clancy”

What are you waiting for? Call them Everest folks up now and change your life for.ev.ver.
Danny MacAskill is one of the baddest of the bad when it comes to bicycle sickery. Homeboy has pushed freestyle bike riding past the limits and with each video has us asking, “what else could you possibly do?” Here’s his latest called “Industrial Revolutions”. Prepare to drop your jaw:
This man is a maniac. There’s too many ‘holy shit’ moments in this short clip to really focus on one. But, here goes: Holy shit! The dude rides his bike on a fuckin rope…then, not only makes it across the rope, but busts out with a massive ollie (bunny-hop) out.
Jumpin and stalling on each of those roof frame bars on the train car?!
A backflip off that little bent up rail (off a big-ass drop-off)?!
A-fuckin-mazing and a half. Bravo to Mr. MacAskill

The fight to save Los Angeles’ murals continues… Yes, there are dumbasses out there that are hell bent on removing Los Angeles’s culture one mural at a time. Shit is pretty retarded.
Saber AWR makes a bold statement. In the sky. I think this might be a first for ‘graffiti’. Anyway, this content was stolen from LATaco.com:
In an unprecedented show of aerial force, LA Artist SABER bombarded Downtown Los Angeles today with skywriting jets to protest the city’s mural moratorium. SABER is no stranger to big statements; in 1997 the artist executed the world’s largest graffiti piece on the concrete bank of the LA river. His latest target is City Hall and the unconstitutional mural moratorium that has been force for several years. Los Angeles, The Mural Capital of the World, has been able to find massive amounts of public space for corporate advertisements, but not for works of art. The city spends more than $10,000,000+ on graffiti abatement programs, but none on mural programs that divert young artist to legal walls to display their art. Existing murals are crumbling and the city’s best artists are forced to go to Europe and other US cities to display their largest and best works.
SABER’s personal act of skyward rebellion is a call to arms for the city’s artists and art lovers. What are you doing to fight the city’s war on public art? One thing everyone can do right now is sign the petition.
