The Pen is Mightier...


Loving this timelapse video from LA-based videographer Sean Stiegmeier. It's a unique way to see Yosemite...and the song isn't half bad either.

What would I do with $6000?

It's true what they say...a man's timepiece and motorcycle are his only true accessories.

Toms Cordones

As if we all didn't need another excuse to buy Tom's (apart from their ultra comfort and the fact that they give a pair to someone in need for every pair purchased), the purveyors of good-feeling footwear have recently launched into the land of laces with their Cordones. I am admittedly a sucker for laces (and how cool are the soles?), and these have me very excited for fall. Get your pair here.

Stones' Summer of '71

Back in the summer of 1971, the Rolling Stones fled to Villa Nelcote in the South of France to escape their UK woes, find new inspiration, consume absorbent amounts of drugs and alcohol, write new material, and basically live it up like true rock stars for nearly six months - and have it all beautifully documented by French photographer Dominique Tarle.

To be quite honest, I'm not sure whether these images of the Stones' and Gram Parsons are striking because of my forthcoming trip to France, or the mere fact that the style and pure presence of these icons has an unexplainable (if not surreal) magnetism all its own. I highly encourage you read the whole story here and judge for yourself.

Alpne Inspired - Jorge Brandt

Recently stumbled across these brilliant photos from cycle god Jobst Brandt and his awe-inspiring Alpine rides. Vintage bikes, daunting paths, crippling ascents, piles of mountainous snow, roads to nowhere, ultra-stylish wool jerseys, and the biggest smiles you can possibly imagine. If this doesn't get you on a bike, nothing will. See more images here.
