XTOOL Crate Expansion on Kickstarter


XTOOL is a new kickstarter project that hits close to home for me. They’ve really done their homework and gone to great lengths to expand the usefullness of the milkcrate. They’ve even set up their own milkcrate production with custom colors. These aren’t those faux crates from Bed Bath and Beyond – there are real deal milkcrates from a injection molding facility.

Canibal M&Ms with Milkcrates

Way back in 1999 M&Ms ran this great commercial with M&Ms eating M&Ms. It’s a pretty great ad, and to make it even better–they are sitting on milkcrates. It also features “Puddy” from Seinfeld. –> M&Ms Commercial, “You don’t eat your own kind”

Andy Breaks His Wrist, With Milkcrates

This video came by way of Tosh.O on comedy central. I went and found the original on YouTube and I must tell you: this video is rough. It’s not for the feint of heart. Young Andy attempts this milkcrate stair stunt and needless to say, he does not make it. Milkcrates in the wrong hands are dangerous. –> Andy Breaks Wrist via YouTube

Milk Crate Skate


Milkcrates and skateboards go back to the beginning for me. Playing with crates, stacking them to see how high I can ollie, and sometimes just knocking them down was the beginning of my love of the form. The misfits at American Misfits have done a series of these videos. This one just popped up on YouTube –>Fuel TV  – Milk Crate Skatin. The timing is almost perfect, after watching the video and getting motivated, buy one of these, I Heart Milkcrate skateboards.
