Rapha Cycle Club by the Wilson Brothers

This was sent to me over a week ago, by benjamella, who interned at Wilson brothers studio last summer. Sorry it’s taken me so long to put up, hopefully you bleeding edge cool kids don’t think it’s too last year.

Basically, it’s a mobile cafe, for cyclists, that stops in European cities and give cyclists the opportunity to meet, share experience and enjoy a coffee. Something that is becoming increasingly popular with the advent of  ‘Look Mum No Hands’ and the like. Not only does it absolutely capture the zeitgeist for cycling (and coffee) it does so in a way that doesn’t ram Rapha down yer throat, which is always nice in the context of a brand funded project. It also looks absolutely fucking awesome, which helps.

March 26th Protests – The Morris Liberation Front

The hype and debate surrounding the misinterpreted March 26th Protests seems to have died down somewhat now, but this video, fresh outta the Henry Flitton stable is absolutely awesome. There’s been plenty of other people who’ve posted their own filming of it on youtube etc, but this is, if you like, the ‘official’ edit. Sporting handmade kits, and a week’s worth of Morris Dancing practice, they gave it their all to some awesome tunes provided by the Ukelele Society.

I especially love the part where they’re told they need a license to dance on Trafalgar Sqaure…

Skittles touch cat

I’m a huge fan of Skittles recent ad work anyway, the cage was brilliant. This one, in my opinion takes the cage’s glory though. When it tells you to put your finger on the screen, actually do!

Film of the year so far…

Hands down, this is the coolest video i’ve seen all year. I’ve posted lots about people from across the pond making incredible films (california is a place et al) but this is homegrown, and does absolute wonders for the British Surfing Community. I’m afraid I can’t take credit for rooting this little beauty out, it was my bro who stumbled upon it. Oh, and it was IdeasTap that inspired me to write it, after a very complimentary tweet about my very out of date blog. Hope you like it!

Custom Bang Guns & The forgotten joys of childhood

It’s a bit like when you find your old pop-gun or cap gun at home, and really want to keep it but fear your better half will think you’re a proper tool for having it around. Well, now you’ve got an excuse, because it could have your name on it (as long as your name isn’t longer than five letters) or you could buy one for your significant other as a right romantic gift like. Either way, you should probably get one, they rock. By the ever awesome Strawberry Militia.

Whilst on the subject of things that rock and secretly wishing you could be a kid again, if you haven’t already, you should 100% check out the absolute wonderland of dreams that is R.S.Currie, in Notting Hill. It’s run by two of the coolest kids around and has a full on house built in the back. Totally radical.
