I’ve been listening to this quite a bit while I get my work done. Really fantastic stuff. Made even better by the fact that you can download much of their stuff quite easily (and freely most of the time at the link below). Really love their artwork as well; entirely adds to the listening experience. They are from Germany.
During my massive research spree prior to getting my M8, i spent several weeks reading forums, articles, and watching videos. One of the most entertaining discoveries I made was a series of videos on YouTube by a lad named Kai Wong for DigitalRev.com. Who would have thought that Jeremy Clarkson would have had a young bastard asian child!? That’s pretty much what Kai Wong is—while most of the other camera reviews and videos are about as exciting as lifting the toilet seat up, Kai does something unique. He instills his thrill and enthusiasm into cameras and photography in the same way that Jeremy Clarkson instills his enthusiasm into automobiles.
Since that time, I’ve found myself watching lots of DigitalRev videos hosted by Kai—not because I really want the cameras he is reviewing, but because I find the videos very entertaining. Good on ya, Kai! You may not be entirely original, but you’re doing a great job nonetheless. (BTW, Kai also uses an M8 as one of his primary tools)
This is one of my favourite videos—which played a role (along with people like Drew from MotoringConBrio) in convincing me of the magical powers of rangefinder cameras.
I am quite fond of leather and suede—the feel, the chemically treated smell, the wearing patterns, and the differences in quality and texture. The other day I found myself searching for explanations of how leather is made, and I found a couple of interesting videos—-3 videos which could not be contrasted any better, but all three of them beautifully filmed in their own way. Most excellent.
This has to be one of THE best openings to any video i’ve seen in a long time….cryptic night time scenes with slowly evolving funkified 1970s psychedelic music makes for video perfection! What a year for great cars in rallying as well! That Fulvia is off-the-hook cool.
What an amazing 25 minute documentary this is! Enjoy
Audi entered 3 cars into the 12 hours of Bathurst this year, and the #1 car came out on top after pouring rain and a kangaroo crossing the track! These R8 LMS specially put forth for Bathurst looks sweeeeet!
The dunhill Day 8 videos always impress me with their fine production and attention to detail…..this one is no exception.
The C-X75 of course is the latest supercar/sports car concept from Jaguar. Whether they build something like this remains to be seen—-but the fact that it was built with the glorious XJ13 in mind is impressive enough……and it looks pretty sharp as well.
This video, for me, is essentially an audio battle of the Lancia 037 and the Audi quattro. The 5 cylinder glory of the Audi and the screaming italian Lancia………the popping of the 5 cylinder clinches it for me.
Yet another glorious video of a Lancia Fulvia 1.6 HF. There’s nothing like the rumble of that fantastic V4. Nice bit of driving on a pretty funky road, as well. The IEDEI obsession with this car continues….
Last year, at the CORONADO FESTIVAL OF SPEED in San Diego, i witnessed the absolute MADNESS of Can Am cars…….the most glorious, wicked, and loud exhausts i have ever heard. My ears were never the same. I got back from that trip and immediately ordered the loudest exhaust i could for my car!
These cars were amazing. CAN AM racing was amazing! WATCH THIS:
