Being a former self proclaimed sneakerhead myself, Im personally hyped about this movie coming to fruition. ALthough im not so involved in the sneakerhead scene/community anymore. I still do have my holy grails of shoes and have a select few in my closet to this day that i've fanboyed over for years until actually being able to own a pair. My current obsession, of course, is cars and the only kicks i've been keeping tabs on as of late are made by Work, SSR or Rotiform. This small movie is debuting March 16th at South By Southwest this year! Hopefully i'll be able to make it in time to see it!
This is a project that I've come up with to get people out and driving their cars more, because to me being an enthusiasts is partially about the building process and more being able to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
"It's not about the destination, its about the journey"
I know this will only touch a select group of enthusiasts, and this is definitely catering more to the drivers out there. I have to admit I love a good "hardparked" car every once in a while, but its just that much better when that same car that's hammered to the ground gets driven (carefully, i might add) and enjoyed!

Joey Lee, from The Chronicles has worked for a handful of magazines and has seen first hand the effect that the automotive blog craze has had on the influential magazine companies of yesteryear. I personally think he hit the nail on the head when he chose the title, "We Failed You", because being in the car community for so long we start to forget about what was and for some still is the only outlet that catered to us as car enthusiasts and acted as a feeding tube for all our tuner needs.
I've been reading Super Street, Import Tuner, HCI, Modified Mag, Honda Tuning and PAS Mag since about age 11. I used to go through these magazines with a few of my close buddies, read features (look at models) and flip to the parts sections and basically build my dream car in my head (the gaudier the better). These magazines were a catalyst for an undying love that I still have to this day and probably wont ever lose.
Sad to see another one go, support print!

In an effort to stay " original ", and not get lost in the sea of trends and duplication. I've decided to change things up a bit and lean in the direction of a more universal moniker for what has grown as a small staple in the Texas car scene. With a new year, comes big changes and a whole new game plan. In the past years of business, I've felt that there was too much focus in pumping out content. So much focus on content that we ended up sacrificing what mattered most to us, quality.
There was no mission statement in mind when it came to the re-branding and recreation.
The photos below aren't necessarily a feature or event coverage, even though this photo-dump does in fact contain some photos from Slammed/Society Texas along with some other randoms that were snapped during my self proclaimed hiatus.
