This is the deeply indescribable something we all wish would happen.
*hard to believe this is an advert for LG, isn't it?
Saks kicked off the best of the rest with its new xmas display this month.
Soon these will be retail de-rigeur, and no major flagship store will be without one. Visual diarrhea? The extent is endless.
Here's Brett Novak awesomely directing killer skater, Killian Martin to a Patrick Watson soundtrack.
Photog, Mike Randolph caught this year's festival - the astonishing strength and daring - and the big falls, which make this sport look scary as hell.

*UPDATE: It's ALL in farking CG for fak's sakes! When did a CG lemon ever look so.... NOT CG???
Boston is the oldest marathon on the planet and in its early days attracted such an elbow-throwing crush of runners that they had to come up with restrictive entry rules as a way to cap the field. You have to qualify to run Boston by meeting speed requirements in your age group - pretty effective. Boston's assured that not a single person running the marathon is a newb; no amateur, 5-hour, sluggish, back-of-the-packers run Boston. The race is SO competitive now that all the spots allotted are usually snapped up and sold out in a ridiculously small window of time. Check this crazy stat from wiki about this year's race: 'on October 18, 2010, the 20,000 spots reserved for qualifiers were filled in a record-setting eight hours and three minutes.'
Ho Lee Shit.
New York is a bit different - they cap the enormous numbers attracted to the race by having a lottery, and sending the racers out in a couple of waves. How many run New York? Almost fifty-thousand. If you register for NYC but you don't earn a spot in the lottery, you're differed to try again. If after three years your luck STILL stinks, they reserve a spot for you automatically, because, geez, you've really been trying, haven't you?
In case you're wondering - my best time is 3:53. The time I'd have to make to run Boston? 3:40 and 59 seconds.
I know, that's only 12 minutes, right?
On race day, that's an eternity.
New York City 2010 happened on the 7th - here's this year's pack in time lapse.
Isn't oldschool Disney so awesome? One of my favourite classics remains forever and always, 'The Three Caballeros', which captivated me with its grandiose visions of Latin America, including larger-than-life musical numbers from Mexico's own 'Golden Age' of cinema. It actually got two musical Oscar nods in '45. The movie is single-handedly responsible for my wanderlust, all I wanted to do was explore the world after seeing it. It's begging for a remix! Someone tell Pogo.
Pogo does Snow White:
More from Pogo - Alice in Wonderland.
My cuz, Mykel dressed up his little one as a Jawa. I'm dying, it's so cute - and he made boing boing!
And the most hilariously offensive costume at the party? Christopher Reeves in a wheelchair. Epic. Can't wait for next year!
