Latest from the Blog
So excited for this announcement to finally be made! The Diafero Collective team of Europeans are Coming to America! They’ll be spending the entire 2011/12 snowy season stationed out of Colorado and will be documenting their journey all along the way. We will also have exclusive postings of their The Triple Annal Blog of Videos. Though they didn’t have ANY good footage of their “Xtreme skill level of shred-sticking,” we still wanted to give a tease of what they are planning for their pure gold video blogs. Enjoy!
If that teaser doesn’t get you pumped… Keep an eye out for the crew as they storm in to town this snowy season for “party time with everyone!”
This calls for a Neil Diamond marathon!

Freitag makes radical adaptive reuse products to put stuff in, so it’s equally fitting that their storefront in Zurich is an adaptive reuse of shipping containers. I love shipping container construction, and this is the tallest and most unique building of it’s type (thanks to the truckspotting deck). Their product line could be considered a fine piece of artwork – with a store that creates the perfect frame.

I wrote the draft to this post using OmmWriter. If you have a Mac I highly recommend this free application. It’s great to just quiet everything down and type your thoughts out in a nice peaceful environment with all your distractions removed.
I know it’s been too long, sorry. I’ve been busy trying to make things happen, as well as simply pay the bills. There’s some great stuff that I’m really looking forward to release in 2010. On the industrial front I’ve been working on a new platform bed, a couch set, and a wall clock. Also, my new portfolio is getting really close to being done. I’m excited to be able to share it with you all soon.
On the personal side of things, I have a new obsession that scares the shit out of me but I’m in love with it. I may or may not give more details in the future. Sorry to be such a tease.
Enough about me, here are some treats for you to enjoy.
Hot Chip released their new album One Life Stand last month and I’ve really been enjoying it thus far. Their latest single I Feel Better has one of the best videos I’ve seen in a long time. It’s totally ridiculous and will leaving you pondering “what… the… fuck… just… happened?” And that’s what makes it so great! Props to Peter Serafinowicz for directing such a rad video.
