Words can’t describe how good this ’73 BBC documentary about the British Hells Angel charter is. A quick excerpt: “Carl, jailed once, remanded twice; cross-eyed ever since his eyes were knocked out of their sockets in a fight.” The denim and leather uniforms are obviously beyond amazing, but check out that A Clockwork Orange soundtrack, and the casual suburban terrorism too. Watch it all here.

Bought a pair of proper trainers yesterday for the first time in years. Thought these photos of Norwegian nudists by Torbjørn Rødland would make good trainer ads. Naked man playing with kittens could sell anything.
