By Vernon Felton Ah, election time. Theoretically it’s that special occasion when America beams out a beacon of democratic bad-ass-itude across the globe. A sort of “Hey, world!

The videographer, Antoine Hoffmann-Massé, tried to show how these riders all live our their dreams and adventures on the bike. For them, there’s no conformity, each one leaves his own mark.
There is a right way and a wrong way to smash a pint glass on your head. At least that's what I learned from this clip: yet another great edition of Pitchfork's "Frames" series.

Logging and forestry can be a love/hate relationship in this region. On one hand it’s unfortunate to see massive forests be mowed down, but on the other hand the hundreds of years […]
