This posting twice in one week lark is a little alien to me, so forgive the brevity of it, but this just came to my attention and it’s well worth writing about. It’s a film about blood donation, a subject that until about five minutes ago was up there with sperm donation in my mind. Sounds crass, I know, and I apoligise, but it’s just something I never really consider. But now I do, thanks to Danny and his brilliant film ‘Give or Take’. Watch it, it’s beautifully shot and well worth five minutes of your time.
If that’s not enough, I’m lucky enough to know Danny and he’s an inspirational young chap, he’s had a tough year or two, so to come out of the other side with such a beautifully shot piece is an achievement and a bloody half.
Go give blood too, you might need it one day!
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.

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…

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!
