Robert Mims, the Texan Bull Rider In this new film, three-times senior world champion bull rider (an activity that needs no further description) Robert Mims introduces British filmmaker Doug Hancock to the close-knit world of a traditional rodeo community. This lyrical portrait of the rituals and rhythms that underpin the cowboy way of life was shot on location amid the dry heat and picturesque landscapes of Texas and Utah, setting the scene for an exhilarating picture of a traditional sport that, in 2018, is still finding ways to keep up with the times. Speaking of his often hair-raising study of the riders, animals, and traditions that define the bull-riding world, Hancock explains: “What I wanted to make was a film that dispelled the myth that all cowboys are white. I don’t think anyone could fail to be inspired by Robert’s wisdom, wit, and sheer love of life.” Bucking the trend Photographer Christopher Pugmire, who travelled with Doug to capture the rodeo world, documented just some of the following scenes on camera.

In the 1990s, we discovered Brotherman: Dictator of Discipline, by Dawud Anyabwile and Brian McGee. This critically acclaimed comic book painted an urban landscape never seen before in comic books. The politics of the story and backdrop resonated with my life living in Oakland at that time. Brotherman was also probably the only comic at that time to have a hip-hop appeal without directly focusing on the music genre.
Disney’s plans for the park were even more ambitious than what was built Sixty three years ago today, with a nationally televised grand opening, Disneyland arrived on the scene as Southern California’s signature tourist attraction.

As adidas Skateboarding continues it’s Showcase X series around the country, the brand tapped its own famed artist/skater Mark Gonzales as the curator of a new group show at NYC’s Milk Studios this past week as Das Days New York came to a close. Not only did Gonzales curate the show, he did two performances of his famed 1998 performance art collaboration with German artist Johannes Wohnseifer, which at the time was directed by Cheryl Dunn and held at the Städtisches Museum in Abteiberg, Germany. At the time, the work was a seminal work of skate and fine art, described as “placing street culture directly into high-art.” Below, you can see a rough clip of the original performance
The working waterfront has become a space for recreation Last week, Brooklyn Bridge Park unveiled the transformation of Pier 3, one of its final piers turned public space, and the latest example of the adaptive reuse of the city’s waterfront real estate. For years, New York’s piers served as the main entry point for immigrants to the city, as well as a hub for the working waterfront. Then, as the city’s industrial backbone shifted away from the rivers, many of the city’s piers became obsolete
