Check out our talented Snow White in the installation of young up & coming photographers at the Puma Flagship Store during last years Toronto International Film Festival. This video by Chris de Castro captures it pretty nicely. I didn't know it could be possible, but sometimes I think she's an even bigger babe behind the lens.
And because we're on the note of Mr. de Castro - check out this awesome promo video he did for Three Thirds - who've got some pretty rad messenger bags I might add.

I love David. He's my hero. In 2007, I was honoured to "open" for David Susuki when we produced Flourish, the Ryerson's Eco-Fashion show that ran at the first Green Living Show in Toronto. This was the first show where Feirce Bambi, Cannibal vixen and I all worked together. Our presentation on Saturday was just before David's speech. It was amazing. Not only did Irene and I get to meet David Susuki, I got to help David by helping him find his coat backstage. I gave back to him after he has given so much! I wish I could do more.
Jonathan Laba (DJ), Meaghan Orlinski (Producer), David Freaking Susuki, Irene Stickney (Designer), Lauren Barless (Graphic Designer).
I also had to kick him out of our backstage area- I know you are David Susuki Mr. Susuki- but you can't go back there- our models may be changing!
And now... a David Susuki Cowichan Sweater. I know! You're welcome.

Remember the Dance-Offs? Those long ago nights when The Nightshades were not yet in existence, but we all still hung out. Those nights of shaving cream. Salmon spandex judges outfits. Roller girls. Robot costumes. Roping off areas on the dance floors at other people's parties to break out rehearsed or unrehearsed dance routines.

do you know what's the worst?

Makes me wonder why brands don't announce they are closing? Hopeful they will resurrect themselves the next season? Can't pay their web developer? Joined a cult and moved away to a remote island where they swore off all technology?
C.H.U.N.K. 666 is a rad collective of tall-bike/bike polo/punks that put out a rad line of bike-polo shirts a few years ago... and I would like to give them the prize for "BEST USE OF R.I.P. WEBSITE."
Go here to see why I think this.

Our babely Big Red is getting some major blog love from the girls over at Fixed Gear Girl Taiwan, originally via the wonderful & local 416 Cycle Style.
I still can't get over the distances you used to ride on that thing Cat.
