In anticipation of the Nyjah Huston video, we will be releasing a new clip, once a week until the video drops on 11.11.11.
The inaugural clip is nothing short of death defying, as one wrong move, and your neck deep in pain. The roll up and ride away conditions are nothing to write home about either, but Nyjah manages to walk the line with a frontside nosegrind down the double set.
Click HERE to watch, and check back each Friday for a new clip of Nyjah.
Chipotle, friend of Element friend and MAKE IT COUNT sponsor, has put out an incredible short film entitled “Back to the Start”. The film depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways, and opts for a more sustainable future.
Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system. The soundtrack is by country music legend, Willie Nelson, who sings a cover of Coldplay’s “The Scientist” is nothing short of moving.
We love the film and its message, and wanted to pass it on. Get inspired, and for more information, visit:
