Cool stuff from the week.

Yet again, favourite things from the past week...

1. Re-discovering "Shinin'", that Fit web-vid. Hadn't seen it in a while, watched it again and remembered it's actually got some cool stuff in it. 6 months old too, web-vids have some longevity...

2. The new "Do The Test" road safety campaign. Might remember that one from before with the dancing bear and the basketball players? Well, there's a new one now...

Saw that on Style43, where I also saw...

3. ...some incredibly good deductive skills. The answer is 3 letters long, an abbreviation of Bicycle Motocross, which is naturally "BC".

4. It's not often I really get people talking to me about the ol' PijinBlog. Some people mention a video I posted up every now and again, and sutff like that, but the only person who ever really talks to me about it is Sam, who has now moved away from Southampton (Loser!). He'd recommended a video to me, and I'd forgotten about it entirely, so having been reminded by him at Newport about it, here it is! To quote Sam:

I've been a follower of vinyl for years, and it has been awesome to see them become so successful. It has always been one of my favourite websites, but the latest vid showcases Tom Arkus who has always put a whole lot of effort into bmx. He is in charge of the website, and has always promoted other riders and made efforts with media. I was pleased to see that he was rewarded for his efforts with a job at flybikes, but I thought it was awesome to finally see some more of his riding. Super fast, big airs and big doubles! Pundai is also a complete shredder!

5. Freedom always run cool comps and help out with cool stuff, and their Advent Jam was no exception. It's in German, but not super hard to work out the idea. Maybe an idea for Street Vs. Tweak next year? Speaking of, someone needs to step up to the plate and become Street Dave so we can get that show on the road again. Suggestions?

6. Spotted this in the comments of a post on TheComeUp, and having laughed at it quite hard thought it qualified for this. I have no idea at what point she thought this would be all that viable a solution, but her call I suppose.

7. The Andrew Jackson vid below this. I have no idea why I didn't just do this post then, or just add it all together to form one post, but there we are - we all make mistakes!

8. Christmas! Got the family thing to do, so I've gotta go pack my stuff up so I can head home to Wales to meet up with everyone, so you're all just going to have to make up 9 and 10 yourselves...
