I checked out the Magic/Project/Pool tradeshows in Las Vegas last week…here are a few pics from the journey.

This was a real low-point of the show, some jag-off pretending to be ‘building a bike’

Things I love – Wally power yacht 118

Posted in Design, Inspiration, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on August 11, 2009 by christacraig

I always appreciate good design, especially when it comes to luxury items. A couple of years ago I was just outside of Vancouver on a friends sailboat. I saw a smaller version of this coming through the water. I fell in love the moment I saw it. Before Phillippe Stark and Norman Foster started designing yachts there was really only Wally creating ultra modern deluxe yachts. I would have to say they are still my personal favorite. http://www.wally.com

Flatland Slo-mo

Posted in BMX, Inspiration, Random, Uncategorized, video with tags , , , , on June 26, 2009 by Jason Craig

Check out this slo-mo video of Terry Adams riding flatland. It’s cool to see it like this ’cause in real time most of the intricacies get lost in the speed of the tricks. (have to admit though, after a couple minutes I was wishing to see if full speed)
Unfortunately I have the balance of a retarded 4 year old, so I wont be learning these moves anytime soon.

ps. holy crap , I can’t believe I finally figured out how to embed Vimeo in WordPress…I’m no longer a hostage to Youtube’s ‘less than inspiring’ quality issues.
