The entire Volume team has been at it working on their new DVD, “The Finer Things”. The editing is done to not give too much away, but you can see just enough to know that it’s going to be a banger! Watch it and get stoked!
Over the years there have been plenty of conversations about how DVD’s are dead and how videos coming out are the same thing as what’s coming out online everyday, just a little longer. Which, yeah, you could make some valid points that it is true. But I think this kind of comes full circle with the “print is dead” thing. It’s not that it’s dying out and won’t exist. It’s a product and for people to want to buy it, it needs to be something that doesn’t suck. You can’t keep repeating things forever and if you haven’t noticed, the model for how magazines are distributed has changed up with the times, and I think the same can be said with full-length videos.
I recently got my hands on a copy of the new Vinyl BMX “LP” DVD that I think is a prime example of what I’m trying to say in this intro. So let’s get into this review already…
Addy Snowdon dropped another trailer for the Episode 2 DVD he’s dropping featuring the B-Team after a couple year hiatus. Take a peek!

One week in Summer
Shortly after the release of the first round of The Hunt, things were already cooking for round two. Since the day I found out about it, I’ve been anticipating the video. I wasn’t sure how you could top the first video after Chad Kerley and all the rest of the guys who had sections blew peoples minds, but it looks like it wasn’t hard to get people motivated to go out and spend a few months filming. Finally, the other week, the second video, “Gold Rush, was premiered in California announcing who had taken home the win and giving everyone a look at what 13 riders had been working on over the past few months. The other day I received a package from Justin Kosman which included 3 copies of the video just for me… But I figured I might as well hook up two of you with a copy along with a fresh t-shirt… but first you gotta check out what I thought of the video.
For the last year I’ve been anticipating the release of Deluxe‘s second DVD, Part Deux. There’s something about the trails scene that never fails to leave my mind completely blown. In a BMX bloggers world that’s primarily dominated by videos of people doing barspins, tailwhips and grinds on street or flairs and tuck no hander’s to double barspins at the skatepark, there really never seems to be as much trails footage going around. I have noticed that there has definitely been a little more trails footage surfacing these days, but no where near enough. That’s why I got excited about this DVD. After waiting it out, the DVD was finally released this past week and I’ve finally had the chance to take a look at the video! Here’s what it’s all about…
A few weeks back, I got an email from Chris Arriaga about a new DVD coming from the crew down in Santa Barbara, California. The title, “Santa Barbarians: The Quest for the Holy Rail” not only is a unique name, but it kind of gave it the feel that this video would be legendary. Since I had a pretty good idea of what the guys in that area are capable of, I was definitely excited to check out the video. It showed up in the mail the other day, so I figured it would be a good idea to toss up a review for you guys to take a peek at. Let’s see what I thought.
