I’m a big documentary guy. I really cannot get enough of them. Most of the time it doesn’t even matter what the subject is, I really adore the format, and enjoy (gasp!) learning something in the process. Why I haven’t been in-tune with the internets to know more about Vice Magazine’s online television network: VBS.tv sooner, I am unsure… BUT – I think I may just be in love.Their guerrilla approach to making some of these documentaries is definitely gloves-off, knee-deep, and in your face. They are doing things, going places, and seeking out answers regarding topics that most major media outlets would never dream of. They offer a fresh, and what I feel to be pretty unbiased view on what they are covering… really aiming to focus on the facts presented to them as they experience these things first-hand.Until recently, Heavy Metal in Baghdad was my only dose of Vice filmmaking… which is an amazing/dangerous look at the only heavy metal band in Iraq, and their struggles to merely exist as a band… let alone play their music. I can’t even count how many segments on VBS are equally as great, if not better. To add an element of legitimacy to it all, CNN just partnered up with VBS because they admire their journalism and unique approach to reporting. Not bad for a Brooklyn-based indie-magazine.Some of the more eye-opening segments that I’ve seen so far include the Vice Guide to Liberia, The Sewers of Bogota, Toxic Garbage Island, Vice Guide to North Korea, and any of the segments from their Middle East Channel. I could easily list ten-fifteen more worthy segments that I have seen so-far, but I will let you explore the site on your own.And to the crew at VBS… if you ever need another cameraman, motion graphics guy, WHATEVERHoller.
I just stumbled on this old Jtuned snap from FD Atlanta in 2005. This was a big day, as it was the first time I would qualify to drive in the professional arena – and what better place to do it, than on my home turf in front of friends and family. It is crazy to think how insanely stock the car was. It has come a LONG way since then. I suppose I have likely evolved as a driver as well.This was a very memorable day for me. Drifting was fun, and still so pure. The professional element was all new and exciting. rnGood times indeed<3
Finished up the pre-packaged sticker packs for Slide Style™! The clean and simple design is in-line with the 2010 rebranding, and I am very pleased how they turned out. Sticker Packs consist of 7 stickers (one of each), while the Killer Pack™ is stuffed with 35 of the same variety (five of each). The backs of the card have a funny message… but you’ll have to cop some to see.Available now in the Slide Style™ Online Store.
I am behind the times, I know… I still do not have an Xbox 360, which means I am also not privvy all the cool stuff in Forza Motorsport 3. My buddy Marlow showed me this replica of my car in it’s 2006 livery with Batlground on the door. If you recall, Casey (cobratuner) made an amazing replica of my car in it’s 2007 livery for Forza 2. I think this version of the car was made by “AoG | Kevbo” on the forzamotorsport.net forum. I’m definitely flattered to see people take the time to make my car’s likeness. It is really, really awesome, so THANK YOU!!!
