Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collin was a man with lots of talents. He was not only a painter, playing saxophone too, a radio host and became famous with his style to put ink in the skin. His today so called "old-school" style was influenced by his profession and the old sea-faring traditions of the sailor became subjects in his work until his death.

Clean the Triumph

The Madeira Drive Shop in Düsseldorf is not only a Denim paradies but also a garage full with the spirit of backyard builders. Yesterday shop owner Hagen prepared his own bike for the springtime, supported by good mate Stefan. Thanks for shooting some impressions of the nice Triumph with rigid frame.

Be different: Haferlschuh


This traditional shoe was designed in the early 19th century by Franz Schratt, a bavarian shoemaker, as solid worker-shoe. The Brit named the shoe "half shoe" and until today it is a rough but very comfortable shoe, safe and treadable. The best are made by deerskin, a tough leather that always looks better when wearing

Miansai by Michael Saiger: Handcrafted


Seems that the world divided more and more into uniform global stuff and extra-ordinary unique pieces, more art than only nice. Miansai is such a brand. Michael Saiger, the founder and creative-director, is a self–taught designer having learned by combining his creativity and curiosity with a natural niche for finding collectibles and translating their influences into wearable accessories for men and women. Inspired by childhood memories of the beaches of New England and his mother’s antique shop, Michael’s handmade designs are preppy, rustic, classic and timeless, leaving those who wear them with a reminiscent sense of youth and ageless feel.

JD McPherson




JD McPherson from Oklahoma played an amazing stripped back acoustic version of North Side Gal. The album Signs & Signifiers has been nominated for "Best Rock/Hard Rock Album" for the 2012 Independent Music Awards!

Mad as hell


A short moment in the mid 80s, everything was possible. To young for family, to old for games. See the Trailer of Betty Blue. Great movie with the best Tequila drunk scene ever!


See also Luc Besson's The Big Blue from 1988

Mad but to laugh...


Taken from the John Landis movie Into The Night. A fabulous black comedy and superbly scripted character study....with the question: Why can't I sleep?
