BFF Video

Here is a real short video from Saturday’s jam at the Bicycle Film Festival. The event was pretty wild and I want to write more but I am pretty tired. I updated the First Rule site and you can read a little more on the event there. Vimeo is getting pretty lame; you can only upload 500mb a week. WTF? Well Youtube is getting pretty rad with their HD quality media players. I don’t know what I am talking about. Sam Pederson e-mailed me today and said that someone stole his BMX IS NOT A CRIME banner! WTF? Whoever took it please give it back. I know it’s a cool banner, but Sam brought that out to promote a cause and not have his retro banner stolen! So please give it back no ones going to hate on you or anything just do the right thing. E-mail me if you know who took it or you want to return it. Thanks.

Bicycle Film Festival Block Party

[7/13] First Rule is hosting the Bicycle Film Festival block party for the third year in a row. This year’s event is going to be fucking rad. We’re going to have some really good ramps this year thanks to Colin, and Jase is going to weld up some rails for us (he’s the guy that probably welded your frame if you ride a Solid, S&M, or Fit). Also, I just uploaded the new First Rule website! There’s loads of content on there, so please check it out and bookmark it. There are a few bugs still, but I should have all of those squared off tonight. In other news, look out for some new videos of Tony Campos and Kurt Russell on Vimby.

[7/2] First Rule is hosting the Bicycle Film Festival Block Party for the third year in a row. We’re going to get things started at noon on Saturday, July 18th. This year’s event will be huge: better ramps, more prizes, merch booths, and much, much more. In addition to the Block Party, at 7pm there will be showings of four BMX films! You can buy tickets here for $10. We will be giving some tickets away, but I encourage everyone to go and support local filmmakers like Marco and myself.

I Love My Bicycle: The Story Of FBM Bikes
World Premiere
Dir: Joe Stakun
In reaction to big business BMX companies in the early 90’s, 17 year-old Steve Crandall started a company of his own called Fat Bald Men. What began as selling t-shirts out of a backpack has turned into one of the most well respected DIY bicycle companies around. Through fortune and misfortune, the film follows FBM through their 15 years of mayhem as told by Crandall and the rest of the BMX bicycle community from close friends to influential icons like Dave Mirra and Mat Hoffman.

First Rule is growing!

I just got a voicemail from Kweli letting me know that he just had a baby! First Rule is growing! Whiteboy Paul is due to have a kid as well, which would another yet another little grommet to the First Rule family. In other news:

  1. Peep the post below for a video with footy of First Rule supporters John and Jake.
  2. No one has e-mailed me about volunteering for the film festival! What’s up? Holla at me!
  3. I just finished the First Rule website! It kinda sucks but it’s good for now. Check it out at www.firstrulecollective.com

Kweli just had a baby!
