SO OBSESSED

Some vibrant nostalgia from the mind of Michelle Guintu. East Bay raised but SF residing, Michelle has developed her aesthetic simply by painting the things she likes. From 90′s R&B superstars, like Missy and Aaliyah, to Joe Montana paintings and McDonald’s installations.

The first time I watched this I felt a bit numb. And in a way helpless. Like something was happening that I couldn’t do anything about. Something so far away, but something so real. How’d it get to this? What can I do? I feel so helpless. But who am I to feel helpless? I […]

A LETTER FROM MICHAEL

Max- I’m attaching a zipped folder of some of the work I’ve done in bathrooms. A friend of mine got a hold of a business card for your blog (with some green attached) and I noticed the quote “Imagination is more important than knowledge” on the back and though you might like some of these […]

Paintings By Glennray Tutor A.K knows I’ve always been a sucker for candy. Growing up it seemed like I always had a quarter to spend on some gum. I suppose the clarity of this image allows for me to remember such a memory so vividly. It’s 4:15 and all I can do is marvel at […]

A LESSON ON FINESSE

Matt came with some Sunday gold. Aside from an icy highlight he also relates an important reality about most things in life. We truly believe that anything can be tight if viewed through the right lens. Hockey’s a great example. Remember, we can always choose to express something in a deliberate way. We can either […]

I don’t even know where to start with this one. The tippy toe intro? The Breaking Board? I just find it fascinating. Did anyone actually order this? Did anyone know Alfonso Ribiero was doin it before the Fresh Prince, let alone had gigs? So many questions so little time. But we’ve got time for a […]

THE 10,000 HOUR RULE

Malcolm Gladwell, the brilliant sociologist behind The Tipping Point and Outliers, would tell you that with 10,000 hours of practice, you can master just about any craft. The only catch is that 10,000 hours is somewhere in the ballpark of 3 hours a day, for 10 years. It also can’t hurt to be as talented […]

THE JENGA HOUSE

C+ on comfort, A on innovation. Japanese architect, Sou Fujimoto has recently created this wooden bungalow, in efforts to create a primitive living space while simultaneously creating contemporary architecture. With no separation of floor, wall, and ceiling the space is fluid yet functional. Well kind of. Depends on what you’re using it for. Don’t plan […]

All I wanna do is find some trees, get a little on, cop a bike and go fuck with Ben in SF. Ride bikes, explore the city, meet people and have fun. It’d be so simple. Here’s another one from the Macaframa crew. The dopest bike crew I’ve seen. Shooting God, holler at me with […]

THE PISTOL SHRIMP

It’s funny. Kind of feel like we’re starting all over again. Almost as if this was the 4th day of the bowties. For the evening we’re highlighting the other half of our primary effort. Relating our thoughts on the extra ordinary. (This one’s more extraordinary to me, but you never know…) The Pistol Shrimp. It’s […]

Kinda like a flip book on steroids, the Parkour Motion Reel is a unique representation of story telling and art. Made up of various frames, the images literally unfold onto each other depicting each scene as it happens. Props to Marcus Troy for the find. Creativity will flourish in the 2010. Enjoy.

The audacity! A bounce pass alley oop in an NBA game? It’s funny. When it comes to sports, often times you can do whatever the fuck, if you end up scoring. In football you can scramble all over the field, run behind the line of scrimmage, and throw five laterals, but if you end up […]
