A staple of the Detroit BMX scene, Blake Yard is rarely seen not holding a handlebar or camera, maaybe a can of beer. I’ve never heard anyone mutter a single negative word about him and I’d be surprised if he wasn’t voted “most friendly” in high school. NERVOUS is a collection of 21 photos shot at local music venues that showcase the revealing moments and emotional body language you’d be quick to miss as a mere concertgoer. Harnessing dramatic stage lighting, Blake uses a variety of lenses to create lyrical imagery, capturing a sight while also exhibiting a sound. Although it might be awhile until we all can experience the magic of live music again, this book serves as a presage of the circle pits and singalongs to come. Limited edition stickers will be included while supplies last. $7 shipped in The States!

We just closed the BigCartel shop. If you want to purchase something just email us- pushitastop at gmail.com. We have a limited number of older group zines and some Kid “Bub Vessels” books left. Also there are stickers, pins and a LensPen or two. Check the “store” page which will exist shortly.
Bub Vessels is a collection of 18 photographs by the legendary KID (Tyler Rembold of WORD Crew). Kid’s eye for stunning and emotional imagery is paralleled only by his eye for tasteful riding setups and his balls to execute on them. The photographs were shot all across the country and date from 2017 to this past fall. The book is handmade in Los Angeles and ships domestically for $7. Contact us to purchase (email pushitastop@gmail or DM @pushitastop).

“With videos being such a huge part of BMX, the whole rider turn filmer is a seamless evolution. It’s not uncommon for someone who starts to take filming more seriously to see their riding suffer a bit—it’s just a simple give and take. However, there are some riders who manage to excel both in front and behind the camera. There are even a few professional riders—some with signature parts and all—who are helping film and/or making some of our favorite BMX videos. Here are a handful of riders who are known and recognized for their efforts on both ends of the video camera and how they find a balance between two things they love to do.”
