Flag Design

Flag Design

Posted on Sep 9, 2016 in Design, Video

I find flag design to be very interesting, and I’m constantly surprised to see how much bad flag design there is. I credit/blame the 99% Invisible podcast for giving me this appreciation. It started with the Vexillonaire episode. I learned so much from it — first of which… Continue reading »

Video: Flatlanding in Foxboro

Posted on Jun 9, 2014 in BMX, Video

This weekend I went riding with some friends at some basketball courts in Foxboro, MA (which are seldom used for basketball) and shot some video. Not an amazing edit — we’re just riding for fun, not to blow minds — but it’s another sample of what… Continue reading »

Stop Vertical Video…Again!

Stop Vertical Video…Again!

Posted on May 8, 2014 in Random, Video

Remember when I said this blog was dead? Well, right after I posted that, I saw something that drove me crazy enough to raise it from the dead (at least temporarily). More vertical video. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine and I’ve ranted about this… Continue reading »

Maul’s Bike Shop held their annual skatepark contest at Skaters Edge in Taunton, MA on April 7, 2013. Last year there were sooooo many entrants that the contest ran all day, but this year riders pre-registered and things moved along at a nice pace. For an… Continue reading »

Breaking Bad & Game of Thrones Mashup Videos

Breaking Bad & Game of Thrones Mashup Videos

Posted on Mar 23, 2013 in Humor, TV, Video

Taking a break from my usual ramblings for a few videos. First, the “Breaking Bad” intro if it was a 1995 network family drama: And Peter Falk reading Fred Savage “Game of Thrones” instead of “The Princess Bride”: On “Game of Thrones”, it’s true:

Yo! Yo-yo tricks!

Yo! Yo-yo tricks!

Posted on Jan 11, 2013 in Personal, Random, Video

I got a yo-yo for Christmas (how old am I again?) and I was able to re-learn my old tricks. And now that I finally have a modern yo-yo with bearings, I’m able to take it to the next level. I’m still a beginner, but… Continue reading »

Boston Flatland Summer 2012 Video

Posted on Sep 30, 2012 in BMX, Video

I don’t have a great video camera or Final Cut Pro, so I tried going the other direction with this video — using only mobile technology to shoot and edit it. This video was shot with my iPhone over the course of the summer of… Continue reading »

Stop Vertical Video!

Stop Vertical Video!

Posted on Sep 16, 2012 in Video

Vertical video is a huge pet peeve of mine.  It drives me nuts seeing so many people on Facebook posting vertical videos. (Jinnie, I’ve forgiven yours for the danger involved.) At the Bob Mould show in Boston there were plenty of people shooting vertical video. And… Continue reading »

August Riding Video

Posted on Aug 28, 2012 in BMX, Personal, Video

I’ve been riding a decent amount this year — obviously not as much as when I was a kid, but even a couple times a week is a lot more than I used to ride even a few years ago. My tricks might be old… Continue reading »

iPhone & GorillaPod & BMX bike

Posted on Jun 28, 2012 in BMX, Personal, Photography, Video

I’ve been wanting to do a quick video of what tricks I can still do, but shoot and edit it entirely on my iPhone. The first problem was finding a good iPhone tripod mount: there are a lot out there, but most require you to… Continue reading »
