12 O’Clock Boys

While this film is premiering at SXSW 2013 Film Festival, it could still use some help via kickstarter.

“Pug, a thirteen year old boy living on a dangerous Westside block, has one goal in mind: to join the 12 O’Clock Boys; the notorious urban dirt-bike gang of Baltimore. Converging from all parts of the inner city, they invade the streets and clash with police, who are forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public. Pug looks to the pack for mentorship, spurred by their dangerous lifestyle. He narrates their world as if explaining a dreamscape, complemented with unprecedented, action-packed coverage of the riders in their element, guided by the riders themselves as they take to the streets and clash with Police. The film presents the pivotal years of change in a boy’s life growing up in one of the most dangerous and economically depressed cities in the United States.”

Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s

On view now at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Pump Me Up: D.C. Subculture of the 1980s is Roger Gastman’s gift to what was once Chocolate City. Tracing the history of the underground scenes in Washington, D.C., during the 80s, the exhibition is heavy on rare, cultural artifacts from the worlds of Go-Go music, graffiti, and a world famous punk and hardcore scene… as well as in-depth look at notorious “Mayor For Life” Marion Barry. A must see.

There are a series of events coinciding with the exhibition you should check out as well.

Every day, hundreds of tourists arrive in Iquitos, Peru, seeking spiritual catharsis or just to trip their heads off. But increasingly often their trip becomes a nightmare, and some of them don’t go home at all.

So we should all adopt a Mediterranean Diet, or better yet, just move near the Mediterranean, retire early and hang out.
