  3. This year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally got the Shakespeare they didn’t know they wanted.

    For the 76th summer in a row, motorcycle riders and enthusiasts from around the world recently gathered in Sturgis, a small town in the Black Hills of South Dakota. It is, without a doubt, the Mecca of Motorcycles — a pilgrimage for bikers and a place to show off the mind-bending customizations they’ve made to their Harleys. But this year, thanks to the presence of the Bird Cage Theatrics Company, it also happened to be the place to witness the most realistic rendition of Shakespeare this side of the West End. 

    Along with all of those bikers, the company’s actors and actresses (including one biker in their midst) made the trek from their Wyoming base to Sturgis a few weeks ago. Their aim: to bring Macbeth to a seemingly new audience — and exactly as the Bard intended it (i.e., with a bit more violence than you’re likely to see in the dinner-theater version). The show’s producers admit to having a rough go of it the first couple of days when bikers who just wanted a night out drinking were assaulted by Shakespearian prose. But in the end, they managed to avoid a biker brawl and even won over a few new fans for ye olde Bard.

  4. This was an exhibit in Grand Central Station in NYC, in which art students from The School of Visual Arts repurposed old Yugo cars. I shot and edited it on SVHS! I also did the silly ID at the end.

Life is too short for ugly cars.

Safe. You can choose your means of getting around by price-performance ratio, trunk capacity or color. Or by breakdown statistics. Of even by fuel efficiency. Now that's really safe. And rational. But you can also let your heart and the gasoline in your blood carry you away. That's passion.

Chromjuwelen.com (Chrome Jewels) sets off with the passion that steers you off the safe path into the irrational lane. The community that meets and exchanges info every day on the internet portal has it's high-octane outing behind it. And often makes everything associated with it—choice of music, clothing and colorful skin—part of their lifestyle. With all the consequences. And a lot of self-confidence.

    After a life changing motorcycle accident Steve was paralyzed from the waist down. His love of cars and more importantly Porsche's put him back in the drivers seat. Using hand controls, he is driven by a passion to once again become whole. A big part of the journey has been learning to drive again. His love of Porsche's is only eclipsed by his determination to not be limited by his handicap.
