Scrapertown from California is a place. on Vimeo.

This is pure inspiration.

This short reminds me of a favourite quote from Lauryn Hill: "That's what praising God is all about, it's doing your passion, fulfilling your passion. You know, that's how we are are thankful, that's how we say we appreciate the opportunity to be alive."

I'm always touched by people pursuing the things that stir their hearts. What else in this short life is so worthy?


  1. Thanks for sharing this piece with us Nathan. It's good that we realize California is not all about hip, cool, expensive places, landscapes by the ocean, surfing and nice tans. There are very tough places to grow up in CA and definitely East Oakland is one of those... and we can extrapolate it to the rest of the Globe. But it's enlightening to see there are kids like these with a dream and trying to make it real.
    Good luck Scraperbikes!

  2. Totally moving on every level - content, production. BIG thanks. Go Scraperbikes!
