fukk skateboarding, yo!

and fukk you! a trick” or treat, honestly?

heath kirchart ©

on fukkin' point, and this is probably one of the best quotes in skateboarding's history, in my bloody opinion. =)

this is also one of the few reasons that i personally dislike methods, style and technicalityaspects on how to push a fukkin' skateboard properly. so distasteful and seriously, who really gives a fukk?!!!

no, i am neither mad nor angry, i am just sayin'... so, 
you go ahead and do your thang, and i'll do mine, aight? thats' it, end of story.

finito!

everyone wins!

peace.

about this book.
-----
back in the eighties, when the western world was deluged by a wave of blue denim, carhartt’s brown duck work coats entered the streets as an antidote. detached from their original raison d’être of attiring hard-working men in mines and on railroad tracks, they arrived in our cities as some sort of new anti-denim. soon after, and largely due to the efforts of carhartt’s european distributor work in progress, the american workwear classic evolved into the international streetwear icon by which we know it today.

work in progress: the carharrt wip archives is the first comprehensive publication exploring that remarkable evolution. edited by michel lebugleand anna sinofzik, with texts by gary warnettmark kessler and anna sinofzik, it features more than 350 images including heaps of hitherto unpublished photographs, artworks, as well as ephemera drawn from the company’s own archives and different private collections, providing an unparalleled look into the brand’s bustling universe.

featuring the extensive story of the brand from its humble beginning to their most popular garments like the detroit jacketwatch hatsiberian jacket, and cargo pantswork in progress is a celebratory, transatlantic stroll through the company’s rich and colorful history. this collection will appeal to both fashion enthusiasts and devotees of american cool.

purchased this big ass globe international book, as show in the image above, a day before new years eve last year (2016) at a local book store. well, i actually made them bring it in store for me, as it would have definitely cost hella lot more if i had mail ordered it myself and by the way, this book weighs a ton! i fukkin' kid you not!

unemployable: 30 years of hardcore, skate and street, consists of 705 pages from cover to cover! this muthafukka is jam packed & filled with more than 500 photographs and illustrations, with hardcover binding and weighs a little over 3 kilograms! no fukkin' lie, i tell ya! more like a couple of cinder blocks rather than a book.

i strained my right shoulder from the sheer weight of it gravitating down on the slings of the tote bag that i was carrying this book in, during my whole day out. what a fukkin' pain in the neck!

alright, alright... let's get on to business now. actually, i had already mentioned about this book before purchasing it in a few posts sometime back. so, go and read it, hereyou lazy arses! well, that makes us even, since me own arse is too damn lazy to write a personal take and / or review for this ginormous beast!

anyways, fuck the world, go read as many books as you can, take photographs and while you're at it, don't forget to push your skateboards too, muthafukkaz!

“berlin”!!! \m/

just be very careful for what you wish for...

this time around our mission was to do an entire issue on our hometown of “berlin” - an ode to the city’s future and past with some present thrown in the mix for good measure.

and here’s a little sneak peek on what’s happening in our “berlin” issue.

- david lichtenauer... is dividing his time between building high-concept skate ramps, high-concept airplanes and high-concept miniature filmsets - amongst many other creative high-concept things.

- thomas von wittich... has been following berlin’s notorious graffiti crew “berlin kidz“ for two years - and luckily for us he always carried a camera with him. 

- moscowman... probably is the hottest ticket on today’s dance floors, not only in berlin but world wide - and we had a long conversation with the young Israeli about his mission to free all dance floors. 

- ruth wolf-rehfeldt... is an unfairly forgotten genius from the former gdr, whose art is very complex, very skilled, very elaborate - and it was entirely created with her trusted typewriter.

- more eloquent statements and visual awesomeness about “berlin” from the likes of: lukas feireiss, andreas gehrke, anna uddenberg, live from earth, conny maier, zhivago duncan, alex gnädiger and many others.

cover by daniel josefson  (r.i.p. 1961 - 2016).

the “berlin” magazine has the format 200mm width x 250mm height and features high quality print, different paper stocks & comes with flaps + specials colors!
