In recent years, Lisbon has become one of the European Cities with the
larger tourism growth. Each year, 6 million people come to visit the
Portuguese capital: 200.000 tourists every day. Tourism brings
opportunities in a city heavily hit by global crisis: about 15% of
Portugal domestic product and 8% jobs in Portugal, nowadays are related
with tourism. But in the meanwhile, the city is basically disappearing:
over the last 30 years, Lisbon lost about 300.000 inhabitants, vacancy
rate in the traditional centre is over 40%, about 5.000 buildings are
disused, and today only 12.000 persons live in the city center.
2016, STADSLAB (Urban Design Laboratory of Tilburg University -
Amsterdam) organized an international Masterclass on City Making &
Tourism Gentrification for professionals and graduates: the urban
intervention case-study was focused on Mouraria, one of the oldest
Lisbon's neighborhood. Originated as a 13th century Moorish neighborhood
and remained a marginal, multicultural and poor downtown area,
nowadays, parts of Mouraria are already affected by tourism: cheap
property prices and proximity to other tourist destinations raise
realistic assumptions that Mouraria will soon face large influx of
investment in real estate and tourism infrastructure. The opportunity is
its economical development, but the risk is the lost of its identity.
“The Good Times Are Killing Me” is FOAD’s second and final full length
feature. In the making for over a year, across 6 states and 2
countries. Based in Salt Lake City, Utah, FOAD is a mixed group of fixed
gear freestyle and traditional riders, who aim to test the limits of
what can be done on a fixed gear in every aspect. Swimming through
traffic and cascading down hills. Barging through the unfamiliar of
snow and dirt. Creating a playground out of the urban landscape of
stairs, ledges, banks, and drainage ditches. Sam Allgood, Jackson
Bradshaw, Jake Matsukawa, Evan Service, Izik Service, Jimmy Watcha,
Parker Thompson, Matt Spencer, Wes Brown, Chase Davis, and many other
amazing riders all bring their unique take on riding to the film.
A weathered Sheriff returns to the remains of an accident he has spent a

flooding back. Faced with his mistake once again, he must find the
strength to carry on.
In the first episode of the series Under the Influence, we go from the
streets of the Lower East Side all the way to South Korea to examine one
of the most distinctive genres to sprout from the concrete of New York
City: hardcore. Along the way, we’ll meet with everyone from tattoo shop
owners to chefs to government workers—all of whom have been inspired by
the teachings at musical meccas like CBGB’s and A7 and found ways to
apply the lessons learned from the scene to their own lives. Join us—as
well as members of Agnostic Front, Title Fight, Youth of Today, Incendiary, and more—as we explore a world living under the influence of
New York Hardcore.
Apo Whang-Od is considered the world's last Mambabatok (hand-tap tattoo
artist) from her generation. At the estimated age of 99, she is now
passing the tattooing tradition to a new generation in her tribe
including her grand-niece Grace.
The tradition of this style of tattoo started as a symbol of pride for
warriors and a marking of beauty for females in the Butbut tribe and has
now taken a unique turn in their village, Kalinga, situated remotely in
the mountains of the Luzon province in The Philippines.
“This dude looks like he should be in the Misfits.” We can’t remember
who said this while watching Andrew Allen’sHockey 2 part, but we back
it. Although he’s maybe a little too nice. With style, power, a
nonchalant demeanor and unassuming approach, Andrew has become one of
our favorites. So we loaded up the gear and went to spend some time in
his old stomping grounds, an odd OC community called San Juan Capistrano
to see where it all started. We pet llamas, saw where he started
skating and toured his childhood home all before heading to LA to skate
with Terp and AVE.
But it’s all there, go watch, all new Fairly Normal
starring Andrew Allen.
Paul Pogba has always done things his own way since day one, a born
Creator. From his childhood in France, to his return to Manchester United, he has made his own rules. Refusing to be anyone but himself and
always bringing creativity and imagination to the game. Football needs
creators. And Paul Pogba is the proof.
The Dog Bowl, originally known only to the most hardcore DogTown crew,
was located in Northern Santa Monica - The Dogtown crew had their own
pool that they could skate in peace. "Dino's Dog Bowl" was shortened to
just "The Dog Bowl." A teenager with terminal cancer asked his father to
drain the family pool on their huge estate overlooking The Brentwood
Country Club Golf Course. Some of the most famous photographs in
skateboarding were shot at the Dog Bowl. Tony Alva is credited with
doing the first front side aerials at the pool in the fall of 1977. It
was named "The Dog Bowl" because there were dogs always hanging out at
the pool. On any given day over the summer of 1977 most of the entire
DogTown crew were at the pool. Some of the best skating sessions EVER
took place there.
Over the course of the past year, Leonardo Fioravanti has turned from a kid
you need to keep tabs on, to a man you need to start paying attention
to…And potentially the first Italian world champion.
Leo is no stranger to the surf world. And the surf world is certainly no
stranger to him. The little charmer has had a spotlight shining on him
since before he even hit his teens. And why not? He had eerily good
form, a myriad of airs, a fearless approach to fearsome waves and a
carve as big as his smile. The world was his, and the hype was
But those days are over.
Leo’s 18 now. An adult. He’s had a certain fire in him ever since
returning to the water after sustaining a broken back at Pipeline. This
year, he grabbed the lead on the WQS and has already beaten both Kelly Slater and defending World Champ Adriano de Souza as a wildcard on the
WSL. Suffice to say, Leo has arrived.
So now its’ time to put the noise to rest. No more hype. No more big
claims. No more calling him a kid. From here on out, Leo’s just going to
let his surfing do the talking. Rest assured, we’ll be listening.
Following on from Proper Stranger and Night and the Soul,
Path of Dawn is the third installment from the city of oh là là and
this one is a little gold star next to the names of its two directors,
Axel Zeltser and Tristan Helias. It’s not often you see the streets of
Paris completely empty, or for that matter, a skate video with a story.
This has both, feast your eyes on some smooth, after dinner skating
through one good looking city.
London Locks is a short documentary that explores an exciting new
subculture that is emerging from the creative cracks in London. A
subculture that is being driven by some of the most stimulating and
expressive thinkers in London's youth community and it involves hair.
The film follows six individuals whom are pioneering a change in the way
young black men and women feel about their hair and personal image. It
explores each person's reasoning behind why they decided to grow their
dreadlocks, what it means to each of them individually and how they see
the movement moving forward as a collective.
They are Marc Hare: Fashion Designer, Kieran Pharaoh: DJ, Ayishat
Akanbi: Fashion Stylist, Curtis Essel: Blogger, Skinny Macho: DJ, Jamel
Williams: Film Maker.
By shining a light on their daily maintenance and grooming routines,
myths are broken down about dreadlocks, in an inspiring and educational
Set in London, a city known for it’s diversity and innovation in the
creative arts, the film showcases why the capital is at the forefront of
this movement. Taking the viewer across the city from east to west
through each individuals stories we glimpse how the frustrations of
London’s past is fueling them to drive change and challenge how we see
and interpret dreadlocks and natural hair.
A film which encapsulates both the good and bad of the city, but which
ultimately highlights hope for a young generation eager to express
themselves freely and honestly.
At this point in his career, with a wealth of extravagant fashion shows
and concert tours behind him, it is easy to overlook the excess of a
Kanye West event as mere show-offishness. Though West may never be one
to shy away from show-offishness, he is certainly not the kind of artist
to make something big if it doesn’t serve a purpose. And it doesn’t get
much bigger than his stage sets, which happen to be the subject of an
immersive new documentary on his ability to integrate stagecraft into
Picking up from his first true tour “event,” the documentary explores
how Yeezy’sGlow in the Dark Tour became such a game changer for the
medium. But this doesn’t even come close to explaining the level of
detail and careful consideration that went into the now-infamous Yeezus
Tour, one inspired by the films of surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky.
Watch the full documentary below to get clued in to Kanye West’s inner brain activity.
Debuting this fall, the collaboration blends the relaxed vibe of the

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History has over 144 million
different objects in its collections.
A sample of these collections are
on display to the public, but 99% of the Smithsonian’s treasures
