The Legend of ELBERT R. HALL Wichita, Kansas…motorcycle man.

Kind of cool...from Coker tires blog

"If you habit events pertaining to vintage motorcycles you might have been lucky enough to experience the historical vision of the original Super Six Hudson “truck” of Elbert R Hall, famous purveyor of all things motorcycle. This famous “truck” is not really a truck at all but a 1929 4 door sedan automobile converted to a “cooler than dang it” farm truck. Elbert’s son and current guardian of the Hudson “truck” has a blast entertainin hisself and crowds at the event he takes “Elbert…the truck” to."

I used to love it when this guy came to town.

Nam Jun Paik

Some of you may have no clue how Nam Jun Paik was But thats ok..
I didn't either until 1994.I was in an art magnet,I was put here because I could create art yet couldn't pass me I didn't mind.Our magnet class had the very specail opprortunity to have a video session with Paik.Our teach told us about this and no one understood how cool it would be until He showed us some of his work..
I think this is what sparked my interest in creating outsider music more then anything.As Paik was creatng electronic music way before there were tems such a techno or house. I took this in a different direction and created "noise" with giutars.drums and any house hold items I could get my hands on.I never had the cash to buy the vidoe editing stuff but I could afford to go to the pawn shop and buy up every 4 track and odd effect pedal,and microphone..I still have most of those tapes in their raw form as I never bounced anything down and only did live performances with my many 4 tracks.i even did a few recordings with friends and some that was even put to vinyl and CD..Check out RaceBannon now on southern Records as this was the group I toured with for many years and had many a great time destroying PA systems accross palnet earth..If it wasn't for this man I had never heard of before comng into my life and showing me you really don't have to do anything the way a book prescribes it I don't think I would have ever done some of the thing I have done..ok enough about me check out Nam Jun Paik..

Hell Mutts

You've spent countless hours in your shed, garage, shop or wigwam busting your knuckles and emptying beer bottles trying to get that motorbike running. Now it's done and sick as hell, so you slap on your dads old raggedy lid only to have most of the liner stay in your hair? Yeah that's where it's at..... Want something extra for that old lid?
Check out Billyd over @ Hell mutts

Suicide Wheels?

via: NewCafeRacerSociety


On January 2009, Powell-Peralta hosted the Rip the Ripper Art Show. Fifty eight artists had pieces on display. The reason for the show was to celebrate The Ripper graphic. So many skaters and artists have been influenced by VCJ’s image over the years, we wanted to do something that would pay respect to VCJ and get skaters stoked. We invited a group of artists and asked them to interpret The Ripper in their own style.
