THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY - the World’s first analog 3D printer is an ironic foil to computerized 3D printers. 3D printing allows products to be created more swiftly and efficiently however, These products are not made by hand. They are merely a product of popular digital 3D-printing technology. In order to rediscover
the thrill of crafting something and reclaim ownership of my work, I built my own 3D printer. It is a relatively old-fashioned contraption that produces almost primitive pottery that feels handcrafted and exudes individuality. The machine is powered by gravity and a system of weights. A roughly 22-pound weight when lifted. turns the machine on, and the weight allows me to be connected with the process.

First single from the upcoming Looptroop Rockers album - also entitled Professional Dreamers - set to be released in the second week of March.
"Dedicated to everybody who's set their mind to living their dream.
We knew pretty early on that we wanted the new album to be called 'Professional Dreamers'. A few pieces to this album's Looptroop puzzle magically fell in to place on a beautiful day in the fall of 2009. Supreme had just had a meeting with our good friend and documentary film maker Simon Klose, where they had discussed Simon's uncle and his research on dreams at the Lund university back in the seventies. Apparently his uncle had been the first in the world to take photos of the brain using different colors to indicate the brain's activity during sleep - and that way actually seeing when the person was dreaming. So he was literally photographing dreams.
Promoe on his hand had just been inspired by a comment in Werner Herzog's movie 'Encounters at the End of the World', to the new Looptroop album's title - Professional Dreamers. Him and Supreme spoke on the phone the same day, and it was just so obvious - the title and the album cover was already there! Now all we needed were the songs...
Fast forward to a little more than a year later - Barcelona, December 2010. We teamed up with 19 year old pro skater Josef Scott Jatta - who is the very essence of a professional dreamer - to shoot the video in his hometown for the moment. Originally hailing from Majorna, Göteborg but constantly on the move - skating and traveling. He's living his dream and creating some beautiful art on wheels, representing for Sweet Skateboards, DC shoes, Analog clothing, Independent trucks and Junkyard.com."

Billabong surfer Felicity Palmateer is 19 years old and currently ranked no. 19 on the World Qualifying Series. Her Dad noticed her determination to surf at the age of four. Her passion hasn't faded.
Like any professional sportsperson she is constantly trying to keep her competitive edge - juggling constant travel for contests, training and representing a brand - all in the media spotlight. It's not easy.
So It Goes explores these pressures through Felicity's thoughts and gives viewers a little insight into the mind of an elite athlete, what they have to deal with and how they manage to keep on keeping on.
