“If you want a group that builds a lot of things and is very creative, you don’t give them more gadgets or give them more tools, you give them less time” says Ben Chestnut. You don’t need to have a grand office or a lot of whiteboards to get creative ideas out, just be focused , have some constraints and the right kind of attitude. I couldn’t agree more.

“Krump is a freestyle dance form popularized in 2001 in the streets of South Central, Los Angeles (USA), that is characterized by free, expressive, exaggerated, and highly energetic movement.

The youths who originated krumping, ‘Tight Eyez’ and ‘Big Mijo’, saw the dance as a way for them to escape gang life and to release anger, aggression and frustration in a positive, non-violent way. This was an opposition to street violence, which was prevalent due to violent gangster activities.

With the cinema documentary ‘RIZE’ (2006) by the Hollywood Director “David LaChapelle,” Krump has spread all around the world.

Today, Krumping has world wide influence in the dance culture, but Krumping still has difficulty gaining acceptance by our society as an art form. Primarily, because people do not understand this dance form and its spirit.”

 

So in addition to good news about the Royal Baby, car lovers like me have another reason to rejoice about because Bentley Motors have ended all speculations by confirming that it will proceed with the development of the Bentley SUV which will go on sale in 2016. The car hasn’t been named yet but is likely to create over 1000 jobs in the UK.

It is not confirmed yet if the SUV would look like the 2012 EXP 9 F concept as seen in the pictures above, ride on the successful Falcon tag or offer a plug-in hybrid version and three-row seating. But you can read the press release officially confirming the new SUV here.

And to add to the mood, I am posting this wonderful video by Public Records called The Real Thing which is a short documentary about custom hot rod builder Bodie Stroud and his re-imagining of a classic Mustang by way of an extremely rare and powerful motor built specifically for legendary racer Mario Andretti’s 1969 Can Am series race car.

 

Such a beautiful song.

Assless BikeMade by Hand is a short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand — sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft. They turn to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (FastBoy Cycles) who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008 to tell his story. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.
