Yasu sent us this link about Bike Furniture. It's got bike parts collected since 1990 that got turned into chairs, mirrors, coat hangers, that kind of stuff. If you think they've only got a few products to offer, you should visit the site and be surprised.
Some of it is a bit loopy but some of it is pretty cool. It's hard to judge how comfy the chairs are from looking at the photos but if you're into this, that doesn't really matter.
Andy Jenkins is having a 15% off on all the new paintings featured on his Bend Press site . And 15% off all the available Wrench Pilot originals. Oh, and the prints, notebooks and all that. Everything is 15% off until November 27th. Also, he'll be adding a few new pieces over the next week, so be sure to surf by on occasion and browse. Wrench Pilot was drawn by Mel Bend and published by Transworld Skateboarding magazine from 1989 through 1991. It was originally concepted as a piece for Thrasher Comics, but was rejected for reasons unknown. Transworld published 23 episodes of Wrench Pilot, before Bend stopped drawing it. The comic made a brief comeback (#24) in the first issue of the rejuvinated Skateboarder Magazine in 2001 and again (#25) in 2004 for the Lakai Footwear company.
Andy wanted to grab your attention by sending the following picture but we think it ain't happening:

Day one wasn’t over yet. After the Berlin City Tour it was time for the opening of the photo exhibition at the Mellowpark. The location is superb and the lighting is great. With a DJ and some drinks it was an awesome way to end the first night. The photos were nothing short of amazing and I was very surprised to see my own photos on the wall. Super stoked on that. I went back the next day to take some shots of the photo art show. Enjoy the work of David Ulrich, Kay Clauberg, Ricky Adam, Ryan Guettler, Sandy Carson,

We haven't seen a FATBMX piece lately so those of you who actively participate in graffiti art, feel free to take your sketch book and start drawing. The actual spray-can piece is the ultimate goal whether it's at an illegal spot or not. We grabbed the camera to check on the latest art at the legal spot (Berenkuil) in Eindhoven, NL. If you see a FATBMX throw-up somewhere, make sure to send us a photo of it so we can put it online. Sweet.

Whilst surfing the net one day for inspiration and possible contacts for design work I found a few designs up on Streetphire that looked pretty good. They were by a lad called Kevin Newbury who originates from the Northeast and rides BMX and also skates. After looking at a few more of his designs and getting to know Kevin better he ended up doing some design work for Valleyside; He told me not too pay him until I was more established and could afford to pay for his design work which I thought was cool. In return for his time I wanted to help promote Mr. Newbury in some small way... I thought he would make a cool person to interview because he genuinely likes design work and gets enjoyment just from seeing his designs being worn and not just Making dollar...
