I remember the first time I walked in to Animal Farm and the first time I ever saw a Pervert t-shirt! Its been my inspiration ever since.
This brand paved the way for most of your favorite street wear / skate brands. But best of all, they where from our home town!
‘How Can I Be Down’ is a documentary I worked on between 2004 and 2007. Unfortunately through lack of funds I was never able to complete the project and it’s lay in limbo ever since. HCIBD tells the story of Don Busweiler – founder of Streetwear clothing company ‘Pervert.’ In June 1995, just as his company was on the verge of major success, Don gave away everything he owned and joined (what was then) a mysterious religious cult – The Brethren or The Brothers and Sisters.
Although there has been a documentary on ‘The Brethren’, my idea focuses largely on the unique sub culture which Don and his clothing label ‘Pervert’ were apart of. A culture which greatly influenced me and shaped the way I look at the world. Like Punk it was DIY, but instead of being singular – STREETWEAR looked to sample (as with HipHop) anything cool in order to create something new. Streetwear was an outward reflection of a lifestyle – a movement – a message….
With youth cultures – being ‘cults’ in their own way – it was clear that interesting parallels could be drawn.
I did eventually find Don – he would not appear on camera; but there is an audio recording of our conversation. He still lives The Brethren way of life.
WSHH ( World Star Hip Hop) Released the second installment of “The Field”. In this series we visit Miami for a look at the city beyond it’s beautiful beaches and night life. Here’s a raw look at the streets and Hip Hop scene of Miami through the eyes of the local artists.
I agree that most tourist get the wrong impression of Miami by only visiting South Beach, and that most local’s feel that South Beach is not what “Miami” is all about. I was born and raised here in Miami and have lived in a few different areas ( Cutler Ridge, Kendall, South Miami, North Miami, Westchester, and South Beach) and I can tell you this, every section of Miami from the sands of Miami Beach to the swamps of the Everglades has its own set or rules to play by. If you really want to experience this city for what it is, you need to visit all corners of Miami and take in the culture from every stop you make.

Steel Wheels is a tight knit network of enthusiasts devoted to preserving and celebrating the culture of aerosol art on trains. Beginning with the prolific masterpieces that colored the New York City Subways to their counterparts on the American Railroad that are now traveling from coast to coast.
For the 2013 installment of the Steel Wheels Art Exhibition a new element was added. The SW Crew introduced Steel Heels, the first exhibition of it’s kind featuring aerosol art on high heels and various styles of the women’s platform shoe. The video was filmed over four days during production and throughout the show. Multiple time lapses were shot with a Go Pro Black Edition. Additional stills and video were shot using a Nikon D600. Editing was completed with Final Cut Pro X.
