Every year at the Triple Tree Aerodrome, radio controlled airplane fanatics converge to fly some of the largest RC planes out there. The spiritual predecessor to the drone meets it's younger sibling in this stomach-twisting footage from the 2016 event.
Last Vegas is usually beaming with the florescent glow of neon and the bright desert sun. Using a modified Sony RX100 IV, photographer Phillip Bloom tones down the intensity for a surreal stroll down the strip. The muted palette paired with "Beethoven's 7th Symphony 2nd Movement", makes for a haunting trip to Sin City.
To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.
For Issue 05, we gathered ten of the world's best Barn Finds, ten of the most interesting caviar-and-potato chip pairings, three spectacular places to stay in Italy, and thirty stunning objects of desire.

Nice try, Cinema Sins, but there isn't anything wrong with Jaws. It makes for an entertaining nine minutes, however, watching them try to find something bad about the grandfather of summer blockbusters.
New York parks are full of aspiring ballers working on their game. But we're here to talk about the guys behind the rims. Blacksmith John Fitzgerald and his crew at the NYC Parks department help keep those NBA dreams alive by hand-making the city's rims at every park and playground.
The 19-69 brand was birthed in an effort to bottle counterculture movements from the past. Over the course of two years, the brand went through an exhaustive creative process with artisans in Scandinavia, France, and Italy before launching their fragrances in Paris. Each scent is inspired by an era, culture, or setting and the music and trends that help shape them and brought to life in the names, packaging, and the fragrances themselves.
The Movember Foundation has been raising money for men's physical and mental health issues since 2003, using the power of community to help spread awareness. Now they're teaming with Swiss watchmaker Oris and Yankees manager Aaron Boone — someone who knows a thing or two about the power of a team — on the Movember Edition watch. Based on Oris' iconic Chronoris model, it has a 39mm stainless steel case and a black dial with rose gold-plated hour and minute hands. It also features an orange second hand, and white indices that come together to create a pleasing vintage feel. An Oris 733 automatic movement powers the timepiece, which arrives on either a brown leather strap with a Movember signature mustache imprint or a stainless steel bracelet. It's packaged in a special presentation box with a leather travel pouch and a more casual red and white NATO fabric strap — a perfect bonus for those who know the importance of getting out and spending time in their community.

In every movie, there is a hidden world. Fish become modeling clay; skiffs are really boxes; a giant sword being drawn from its scabbard turns into a much smaller kitchen knife. This is the secret world of foley: adding in sound effects in a studio, using common items, while the scene plays on a screen.
