Vintage black and white photography is priceless. It tells a story in the simplest manner and captures the moment only in that time period. On the other hand, when you colorize these b/w images almost 9 times out of 10, it doesn’t seem to work. I ran into a few images that “almost” make it happen, but not really. You decide for yourself starting with the King and the Mr. Watergate in 1970

The Matix squad just finished the semi-annual Agenda show in Long Beach. Low and behold, we were just awarded the best large booth design at the show! I guess all the years of vintage collecting have finally paid off?! No really, I couldn’t be more proud of the boys for making this happen. Big ups to Gus, Gabe, Chad, Al Pargas, Todd, Daran, Nick, Jaime and of course BD for a job well done. Check it out

It's Friday and Brent is deep in white stuff, somewhere… (photos by Gabe Lheureux)

 

The good fellas at Source in Europe, did a little piece with our marketing head, Brent Sandor about all the good stuff happening this next winter season. 22 years into the game, and I couldn’t be more stoked on the new 686 collection dropping in a few months. You can read about it HERE

I’m a fan of repurposing products for a new life. When it comes to physical spaces and architectural finds, I get all giddy at the creative process. Having been through a few myself, the excitement wears off pretty quickly when you deal with poor subs and an archaic city approval process. Regardless, I’m hooked and looking forward to jump at the next opportunity. Recently, I stumbled across a cool build in Portland, OR by Works of an industrial building into a 5,000swft living space. From the outside, the view is minimal and matches the street landscape

 

I’ve seen a lot of these type of remodels, but what stuck out to me was the center open space

 

Light from the outside to the inside. I love how the vertical glass that floats above the wooden structure

No, it's not the movie with Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix or actually in Idaho. Bob Burnquist, with the help of Jeff King, Jerry Blohm and the check book of Visit California have developed their own private floating ramp in California. Check the floating masterpiece here
