Every now and then someone comes along that breaks the mould. Someone that sees things differently. Someone with ideas so unique they may never have been conceived by another man. These people, these entrepreneurs, pioneers of style and technique are the only people that bring true change and progress to the world. This is what makes them legendary.
Case in point: Skateboarding. You may have thought that this extreme sport had reached its peak. That every trick had been done a thousand times. Maybe I even thought that too. Enter Kilian Martin. This video says everything you need to know about the promise this guy has for the industry. Most people would never even have conceived the tricks he is throwing down. This is a regeneration and a re-invention of the sport. Watch this guy.
This is one of my favourite tracks of all time. I saw LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip live in Cardiff at the weekend and it was great. You have to see LCD Soundsystem Headline a gig, it really is one of the all time great performances I have ever seen. Their mix of progressive electronic intensity is enough to make anybody move to the beat, whether willingly or not. Here is progressive music at its very very best. If I could see all my friends tonight…
I’ve got to admit that I missed most of the past F1 season, but I did at least catch the last race. And I am pleased to report that for the third year running a decent person has won the championship, and in another British made car. Alonso looked set to win his third world title, which unless you are Spanish you certainly did not want to see happen. Let’s face it he is a bit of a douche.
Over the past few years he has often been the centre of scandals, that seem to have harmed those around him more than himself. Thankfully his poor 7th place finish lead the way for Vettel, now the youngest world champion in history, to take the crown. The best part about it was that Vettel has never previously lead the world championship until he won it on the last day. He seems like a decent bloke so well done to you sir.
Feel pretty sorry for Webber though, he arguable drove as good as anyone this season, but sometimes the luck just doesn’t go your way. A bit like Barrichello last year. But top marks go to Team Red Bull, not only for winning the Drivers and Constructors championships, but for doing it without using team orders, that compromise the race and sports integrity. *Cough (Ferrari).
