Rooftop Rampage - Skateboard Showdown in the LES

Coming off the success of New York's King Of Spring, the same dudes who brought you the event, Run My Game Productions, are back with a new joint. This one is called the Rooftop Rampage and is going to be burly as hell. This best trick contest and open skate jam will all happen on the rooftop of Manhattan's New Design High School. They'll be 3 G's at stake, tons of product tossed by the events multiple sponsors and handfuls of pro and am cameos. It all happens on Saturday, June 14th from 11AM to 6PM and will be hosted by Billy Rohan and Alex Corporan. Come down to peep some insane skating, scam on chicks and come up with the best view of downtown Manhattan outside of the Empire State Building.


Heads up ladies--its time to update your wardrobe. The Hellz Bellz Summer "HEAT WAVE" Collection hit stores this week! With acid washed denim and tees with messages "loud enough to blow out your eardrums"--your closet is bound to thank you.

Check to find a shop in your area.


A few of us from the FOUNDATION caught the F train and headed down to 158 Rivington to check out the first day of the ALIFE & A.R.C. COURTYARD CLEARANCE SALE.

When we got there, the line was around the block--and it was not getting any shorter.

We each copped a bunch of tee's and fleece. The clearance sale is going on today, tomorrow, and Saturday from 12 to 8 and Sunday from 12 to 7. I highly recommend you all head down to 158 Rivington Street to get your buy on.

Deus Ex Machina Wearable Motorcycle Concept

Art Center College of Design student Jake Loniak combined motorcycle technology with an exoskeleton form for what is essentially a wearable motorcycle. Named Deus Ex Machina and branded by Yamaha, it's intended to serve as an extension of the body. Loniak found inspiration in Biomechatronics and used 36 pneumatic muscles, seven artificial vertebrae and two linear actuators to mimic human motion. He introduced the design earlier this month at an event on the school's Pasadena, California campus.

The Deus Ex Machina remains in the concept stage, but it's expected to go from zero to 60 in three seconds and achieve a top speed of 75mph. It has an incorporated helmet, but no storage space. The single motor is contained in the central wheel and, fortunate for the environment, runs off of nano-phosphate batteries similar to those in hybrid cars.

The the rare seared yellowfin tuna was to die for as well. For appetizers we had warm pistachio crusted goat cheese salad and the lobster ravioli, yum!  If you are thirsty they have great Mojitos and the strawberry lemonade was refreshing.

The Last Dragon . . . .a classic? i think yes!

In 1985 a little movie entitled "The Last Dragon" was presented to the world. I, until this week, had never seen the movie before. Curses! Blasphemy, you may even say! I know, I KNOW. I did however watch this amazing movie. . . not so much because i was yearning to, more so because i was sick of being shunned by my colleagues. What a surprise! The search for the final level, aka the "glow" was an amazing journey by adorable Bruce Leeroy. It has everything - action, suspense, love, and some weird creature that lives in a tank . . . what was that?? All in all i give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. If you haven't seen it yet stop depriving yourself of a cinematic classic. If you have, go rent it again!

Last night I had a blast attending the Casio G-Shock's 25th anniversary. In attendance were Spike Lee, Haze, big namers of "streetwear" and press. In4mation (DQM, LRG, and Frank's Chop Shop have also worked with G-Shock) has been fortunate enough to work with G-Shock not once but TWICE and will continue to work with them every season to produce awesome styles. Here's a recap of the event photo style =)


The seafoam green watch you see on the bottom right is the IN4MATION X G-Shock collab that will be released this summer!!




G-Shocks on ICE... er in it!
