Gus, ZACH, and gustavhoiland.com

So Gus was in New York this week playing some polo in The Pit. He was telling me about how he’s in school for photography and posting some of his favorite shots on his website gustavhoiland.com. Later I looked up his site and browsed the photos and descriptions he has posted. Some of them I thought are really good and interesting. Like this one of ZACH that I had to send the link to the man himself. ZACH emailed me back happy that his comment need not be approved and asked me to post it here. It’s at least worth a look.  http://gustavhoiland.com/2010/01/18/just-go-to-new-york/

Boston Bike Polo short video

Boston Bike Polo from Boston Bike Polo on Vimeo.

Boston Bike Polo Put together this short 1:29 min. video that probably sums up exactly what pick-up feels like at the Alston courts. Great place to play polo and I really like that only one in about 20 or so shots of this video has someone posted in goal. The rest of the time it’s like six people playing polo, not 2v2 + 2 tripods. I love it. lets see more.

Is stealing a bicycle ethical?

Tom Sachs speaks at WNW aka TrackstarNYC
November 20th, 2009 7pm
231 Eldridge St. NYC

Edit: This flier is different, they (nike) changed the wording from “stealing bikes” to a less agitating “stolen bikes” and asked the fliers be updated.
