Skateboard Beat Down

This is not the type of stuff I usually post - but it felt like everyone who skates should see this (as well as some people who don't skate, who would try this dumb shit). A couple of skaters were having a little session and someone had to go and pull a gun on them. Skateboarders are not punks, when will the world learn?

Ferrari 458 Italia

Replacing the outgoing Ferrari F430, the 458 Italia represents Ferrari’s latest engineering conquest. The mid-engined 4.5L V8 enjoys power increases over its predecessor as factory numbers point to outputs of 570 hp and 398 lb-ft of torque with the majority of the pull available at 3,250 rpm. The relatively lightweight aluminum chassis results in a 3,042 lbs dry weight with performance numbers suggesting 0-62 mph sprints of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 202 mph. The 458 Italia is the first Ferrari V8 to break the 200 mph mark. The car will be officially unveiled in September of this year at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Originally seeing themselves at the center of well-received celebrity collaboration, a few seasons after the fact comes some Polaroid photographs which were shot by Kenneth Capello involving porn star Tera Patrick for Supreme.

Check out my interview on

adidas Skateboarding "Diagonal" Campus Vulc Mid

To mark adidas Skateboarding’s straight-to-web video “Diagonal”, a special make-up of the Campus Mid Vulc was created. The movie created by the European faction of adidas SB features many of the team’s well-known riders Dennis Busenitz, Mark Gonzales, Tim O’Connor and Silas Baxter-Neal in addition to the likes of Chewy Cannon, Marcos Gomez, Seb Daurel, Lem Villemin and Benny Fairfax. The shoe itself follows the traditional vulcanized construction with an interesting color blocking. The majority of the shoe is black but as you hit the back, colors are injected in an overlapping sequence. The video can be seen here.

Here's Gonz and Lem's part in Paris. Now Gonz is 40 years old and still killing it, and he said he's goin to be the Olympic Skate Coach... Amazing!

Commodore 64 Laptop

There is just one week left to bid on an amusing, one-off computer--a Commodore 64 laptop, hacked into shape by modder Benjamin J. Heckerdorn. The beige portable has just 64k of memory, but perhaps you can get around that using the SD card port. Also comes with hacked-in ethernet and USB ports.

Heckerdorn, who guys by the moniker BenHeck, has also whipped up a portable X-Box (below) and builds his own furniture. Check out his site for more.


"Continue Time" Clock

Sander Mulder has just released Continue Time. The clock's second hand rotates around the minute hand, which rotates around the hour hand, creating a dynamic, kinetic sculpture that can, amazingly, still be read like a normal clock. Made of brass and aluminum, the clock is available from the designer in a limited edition of 25.

The idea for this design started with a move. Sander explains below:

While moving to a new house our clock was damaged severely in transport, to a point where it's minutes- and seconds pointer fell of the central axis, and where just laying in the transparent bubble cover. Witnessing the random patterns that occurred with the hour pointer still rotating, the first concept for the Continue Time clock was born.
See the clock in action in the following video.
