For a while we placed ads in BMX magazines on the regular. We've got a whole series of them which we'll be showing you again starting off with the party ads. We had to stop this theme because people were seen dancing with girls, drinking alcoholic beverages while the lady was sat at home on the couch being bored. A man's gotta do, what a man's gotta do. Making it in an ad had never been this easy. Just party and voila, you ended up in the FATBMX ad. Now check which riders your recognize from the following ads.
Projectivity Movement, Richmond Hood Co, 5050 Skatepark, and RobotsWillKill present INSPIRED BY US; live art, film premiere, and art sale for charity. We have come together with a large amount of the artists and community businesses on Staten Island to create an enormous, fun filled night of art and inspiration. All proceeds for the evening will be going to the Staten Island Arts Council's LARK FUND, an initiative to bring music and art supplies to Staten Island public schools. This is a serious concern among artists, teachers, business owners, and community members, so we have created an event to help raise money for schools seeking mini-grants from the SI Arts Council, specifically for the arts.

Thanks to Nicolas Curie we can continue to bring you more BMX comics. This one has all the instructions on how to do a nose manual. You see, Nicolas is a BMX rider from the Blockhaus posse from France and nowadays a trainer of 150 BMX Kids in Troyes. He teaches kids how to do tricks and have fun on their bikes on a daily basis. If you're struggling with nose-wheelies, check out the instructions on this page. If it works for that lady, it'll work for you.
Hang-10, no-footed nose wheelie, what difference does it make? If you don't know what either one is, simply follow the step by step in the comic. It's quite comical actually so make sure to peek in and read the whole page. And don't forget to wear your fullface. Zonder Helm, Kop Kapot!
Earlier this week The Wildman posted up a "how-to" on Instagram. He was doing a manual in some exotic country. The funny thing was, he looped out and fell on his ass. He still posted it up and I thougt that was cool. The how-to of today shows you what to do to prevent from looping out. We trust the Wildman can do a manual, just make sure the rim isn't wet.

Well done BMX comics are hard to find. Nicolas Curie showed me one over in Pessac, France during the Vibrations Urbaines contest. He sent me the English version of a few pages. This one explains how to do a manual on a BMX bike. A Step-By-Step in a different style. Check the page inside.
The Texas Toast crew had a plan for Friday night. With the help of Bell Helmets an auction was held to benefit the Athlete Recovery Fund. 20 Bell helmets ended up in the hands of (BMX related) artists who turned them into interesting pieces which were being sold to the big crowd by Leland Thurman. It was an amazing night with amazing people and helped out the ARF in the end.
