The dudes! Check out this old trailer for the iconic Mondo Enduro adventure motorcycle film from the mid 90s.

Not that we ever need an excuse to post Mondo Enduro greatness, but our Petrol, Food, Beer: Around the World with Austin Vince film is playing this Thursday (April 24th) at the monthly Doc Heads film screening event @ Monty’s Bar, 149 Brick Lane, London. 

Its free entry, so come down for a brew if you’re in town! If we’re lucky there may even be a guest appearance by Austin Vince himself.

    Good friend of MYB, Orlando von Einsiedel has dedicated the last 2 years of his life to make this incredible film documenting the Virguna National Park and the daily struggle to protect it. In his words, "It nearly killed me 10 times". This is a must watch.

    VIRUNGA:

    In the forested depths of eastern Congo lies Virunga National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places in the world and home to the last of the mountain gorillas. In this wild, but enchanted environment, a small and embattled team of park rangers - including an ex-child soldier turned ranger, a carer of orphan gorillas and a Belgian conservationist - protect this UNESCO world heritage site from armed militia, poachers and the dark forces struggling to control Congo’s rich natural resources. When the newly formed M23 rebel group declares war in May 2012, a new conflict threatens the lives and stability of everyone and everything they’ve worked so hard to protect.

  • "If to enjoy even an enjoyable present we must have the assurance of a happy future, we are “crying for the moon.” We have no such assurance. The best predictions are still matters of probability rather than certainty, and to the best of our knowledge every one of us is going to suffer and die. If, then, we cannot live happily without an assured future, we are certainly not adapted to living in a finite world where, despite the best plans, accidents will happen, and where death comes at the end"Alan Watts on living with presence.

    With brands worldwide humping the shit out of "stories" to cunningly vie for our attention.  Some of them fail miserably, while others, like this Leica campaign, do a better job at telling more credible stories whilst plugging their wares. Here’s the latest Arto Saari ‘Let us Roam’ episode.
