Such an insane video.
The 2nd half of this video talks about something that I never really realized — that stairs in most places are often placed out of sight and in unsightly areas to sort of discourage their use over elevators and escalators. Basically, making us all really lazy.
Remember that video of Po-Chih Lai’s Stair-Rover I posted last summer? At the time it was merely a concept/prototype but now you can actually get your hands on one through this Kickstarter campaign. The 8-wheeled skateboard can traverse down stairs with ease and looks super awesome while doing it. Pledge and make one yours today.
Another fantastic letterpress piece of work by Joey Roth. This one gives visual representation to the Grind vs the Dream. Grind: Disciplined, incremental movement through reality towards a goal. Dream: A good idea that loses potency as it encounters reality. Printed by Aardvark Letterpress in LA. You can buy one for $35.
Also, don’t forget that this weekend at Grand Central is the Parade of Trains!!! Photo: Mario Tama/Getty Images
Old Hong Kong looks amazing in this photo taken in 1934.
