Here's the trailer for Trafik film, To Live and Ride in LA, essentially pointing out that you have to have a deathwish to ride a bike here. But we have a lot of fun.
BFF has a block party on Sunday, September 5th. Go bunny hop for free shit.
It's the first annual LA Skate Film Fest so make sure to give them some love so they can do it again next year. It's your chance to see everything you missed so far this year in skate films on a big screen. Plus, you can see the one and only Steve Olson in Machotaildrop.

If you want something to really make you feel like running and playing outside click through OLIVIAWASHERE's flickr. This lady is a talented photographer who is living rent-free at her parents house in Kansas - because she is a child. She takes all kinds of photos of animals, other kids, the park, being underwater, and goofing off in general. The really neat part about looking through Olivia's photos is they look like what you wanted your photos to look like when you were a kid, but they never did. Hers do. This kid is ossummmmm.
Here's Olivia's bio: "Hi, my name is Olivia, I'm 12 years old. And I like to take photos which is obvious. When I get older I wanna do a lot of traveling. (:"

The sound is a little off in part one, but it doesn't have time to become bothersome. The video parts the panelists are talking about cut into the edit with a voiceover. All in all, the discussions are funny and insightful; Jones to Gonzales, "...you threw the video camera out the car window..." Parts one and three of the panel can be viewed on PAT O'DELL'S VIMEO.

You might have seen photographer Amanda Lopez' work on this blog before. She's been doing an ongoing series for years documenting travels in her checkerboard Slip-Ons. Amanda just got back to San Francisco from a trip to Miami and dropped us a note about her latest rambles. If you're in San Francisco, you'll want to drop into the opening of a super cool looking photo exhibit Amanda is involved in. EL TECOLOTE, the Mission's bilingual newspaper, is turning 40 years old. The opening reception is tomorrow night, August 11th and continues through August 29th, 2010 at the MISSION CULTURAL CENTER FOR LATINO ARTS. Have a look at Amanda Lopez' newest portrait series CALI LOVE on her site.
