From the top to the bottom, and back up again.



Because everybody likes themselves a little gif.

Kicking today’s effort off- It was though Morgan that I discovered the following, which very well may be the best thing on the internet right now;
tinybars
tinycranks
tiny freewheel
tinybike
This project is reminiscent though entirely less detailed than a project that Spencer turned me onto when I was visiting the Ritte H.Q. in July;

Did you watch that?

You should.

Three years just to do the drawings

Let that sink in for a minute.

And for the inevitable few who will declare “looks like somebody has a lot of time on their hands” I have to reiterate that creating perfection simply for the sake of doing so does indeed take a great deal of time.

I’ve spent nearly twice that amount of time on this site and I’m no closer to having a replica Ferrari now than I was at the start.

In other news not related to tiny things, Ken Stanek is up to his old tricks with the 16th annual Cranksgiving alleycat food drive;

His joint is on Today for crimaniy’s sake.

Seriously, the guy is like the patron saint of feeding the hungry. We might as well call him the Reverend Cecil Williams of two wheels;

Their hearts beat in unison, and for that fact, the world is a better place.

Now that we’re feeling all warm and fuzzy about humanity, I’ll roll out this clip by Nina Paley that I came across while flying home after my recent trip to New York;

Humankind is simultaneously both the best and the worst thing to happen to the world.

Now, jumping from one topic that matters to another that absolutely does not, on Wednesday while perusing my standard array of hunting grounds for website content, I came across Hipster Business Name Generator.

After a short spell dicking around in there, I came across this one and exclaimed, “I found my site’s new name, for I love both songs AND Baskets!“;
newname
But then I began to reflect on the hassle of buying a new domain name, and getting the site rebuilt, and explaining to my parents what songs and baskets have to do with anything, and I just ran out of gas on the idea.

Instead, I opted to design my own graphic, which kinda expresses the same poetic sentiment as the previous one did;

I feel as though it will look fetching hanging from above the door of my brick and mortar business I’m opening in Brooklyn/Oakland/Portland where I will sell $300.00 bicycle pants, and beard wax.

Lastly in closing I offer this submission from Frank;

Stevil-

I could leave my commentary on this video at simply “Rad.”, but this has me excited on many different levels.

Connecting industry to the community. Connecting the long artistic history of the community to the creativity of the skate community. The fact that they show the development process from concept to execution. And then the fact that there is awesome skating. Again I say, Rad.

Thanks,

Frank

It truly is a thing of beauty to see partnership at work, and the support and commitment depicted throughout.

Plus I heard at some point that marble was a rapidly dwindling resource, which if true means it’s just a matter of time before that park is worth billions.

Now that we’re at the ground floor, go back to the top and start all over again.

    I thought the dude with the cool RC, home made wood 4x4s was the coolest thing on the net.
    Now I’m confused.

    I saw the BM with crossed ak47’s and my first thought was “wow, thats a seriously angry bowl movement!” I think ive eaten at that restaurant before…

    I for one think your miniature replica website is pretty rad so far and even if you don’t have a tiny Ferrari to show for it, I have a pretty nice sock collection out of the whole thing.

    UGG, that stupid criss cross logo is in the sign for every new ”hip” restaurant in LA, that is owned by white people anyway. I don’t think they remember 80’s straight edge hardcore, and I know they did not invent the X with initials either.

    That Marble skate park is the greatest thing I have seen on the the interweb in years.

    That was a variety pack of awesomeness. Thank you.

    The Nina Paley clip sums up the middle east right on the money.

    I’m glad I have enough time on my hands to find out about all this cool stuff! That marble skate park takes the cake.
