Insane skate clip... Kilian Martin: Altered Route (Video)


I don't skate myself but I've been a fan of the sport ever since I can remember, the controlled flow the skaters ride with and the intricacy of their tricks has always caught my attention and this video is no different. Throw in a phantom camera and an abandoned water park and you have an Altered Route. Video directed, filmed, and edited by Brett Novak.

TOPE - Since The Last Time We Spoke (EP)

New FreEP from the Portland Rapper/Producer TOPE, the follow up to his recent release Until The Next Time We Meet.
This EP is a collection of songs that didn't quite fit the vibe of UTNTWM but still deserved to see the light of day. STLTWS shows a little more aggressive side of TOPE with songs such as "To The Top" produced by Ari Stackhosue and "Keep Talkin" produced by N.VS, but don't take our word for it. Download, and see for yourself.

Void Watches

Trying to read the time on these timepieces without correctly knowing how to is something like learning a foreign language, but once you figure it out you might just leave behind the traditional time-telling ways for this new look.

In short, each of the two hands on the face have both a red and white tip that correspond to either minutes or hours. So in the above picture the hands show that it's 4:35, if the colors were reversed however it would be aprox. 10:07.

If that doesn't help then head over to Void's website and peep their 'How Does It Work' page.
