It’s been seemingly an odd day for our posts today, considering most of them haven’t been art. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Regardless, we’ve got information on a new travelling site from a friend of ours, who has started a new project entitled “YULAIR” for people traveling the world from major cities in Canada such as Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. If you like traveling and want to get great rates on seeing the world, check them out!
“Meet Adam Kallen and Alex DiMattio two friends who come from very different backgrounds but are united in their dream of opening a new kind of motorcycle shop. Taking all of the things they love, coffee, clothing, accessories and of course motorcycles the friends found a space in Brooklyn and got to work. Filmed a few short weeks after opening… this is JANE‘s story.” – Cinema Mercantile

We here have been working hard to make loads of new ways for you to see (what we think at least) is our fantastic publication. Now through Readymag, we have made our publication cross-platform, where you can read our most recent issue on your desktop, tablet and/or smartphone. Through this platform there’s loads of new features such as audio, video and slideshows. It means you can enjoy tons more from each artist/feature. Currently, number 10 is the only issue up, but you can rest assured we will do our best to get every last one up there. After the click a quick mini-demo of how it looks on an iPad. Read BBB10 through Readymag HERE.
The guys from Warby Parker got in contact with us about an exciting new project they’re doing with musical artist Beck. The two are collaborating on a music meets fashion project that is celebrated with a new line of frames entitled “Carmichael.” Below is their press release about the project and after the jump a lot of amazing pictures of the frames.
“Meet Max Hazan. Working at a successful but unrewarding career in design Max decided to pursue what he loved, building one off custom motorcycles (at Hazan Motorworks) unlike anything else out there. Roughly one year into this new life Max reflects on his start, his design process, the bike he just finished…a Royal Enfield modeled on old Italian Speedboats and the one nearing completion… a Harley Ironhead that measures in at eight feet long and three hundred pounds.” – Cinema Mercantile
For this post, we decided to get a little bit funky with it. We have a newly released song entitled “Yo Majesty” from a rap duo who go by the name of the Fierce Kingz. The evidently schizophrenic artists rap about medieval and royal cultures using what we think is correct terminology and also dress up to fit the part. The song reminds us of something like BANGS who had that hit single “Take U to Da Movies” or the guys from the comedy group Workaholics who have a parody rap group called “The Wizards” with songs such as “Potion Mixin“. Love it or hate it, we think you’ll get a laugh. Watch the peculiar video “Yo Majesty” after the jump!
It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you, without a new Bizarre Beyond Belief issue. Sincerest apologies for the delay on this one. Many obstacles and road bumps in creating this publication. However, we’re back with a brilliant double-pressed tenth issue. Coming at you with a powerhouse line up such as the legendary New York graffiti artist Alan Ket, our first repeat interviewee Jack Hardwicke, Greek graffiti artist BIZ360, the omnipotent being Earth Crusher, the incredible Trevor Wheatley, innovative street/fine artist LX ONE, the 20th anniversary of the BSM Crew in Toronto, and one of our absolute favourites Jason Botkin.
