La notte delle seghe

Words & pictures by Cello La notte delle Seghe fa una paura. Fottuta. A tutti. Per questo prendi su e cerchi di fuggire. Sulle montagne: "Magari non mi beccano, non c'è neanche la radio transistor". Ma poi cosa trovi? colori pazzi crocs di benvenuto tramonti sfumati ungulati sbranati dai lupi saputelli brianzoli flair Basta e avanza...

Italia Far West

Words by Guido Casbah and OK Fede / Pictures by Cello & OK Fede     Words by Guido Casbah I saw everything, I saw nothing. I saw thousands stars shining in a crystal clear sky, I saw animals and magic trees, memories of peoples passed by, martyrs, heroes, wayfarers and bandits. I saw them all but I haven’t seen none of them. We were nowhere, we were everywhere. We...

Mäuerchen Pass

1. PREFACE: YOU CAN NOT GET OUT ALIVE FROM THE ‘90s (words by Clava) When I was young (my grandpa stories always started like this…) I attended the high school.

Kuljeskeleva

Words & Pictures by LuLu NdE: What you're next to read is not written in native English, as you'll immediately guess. But we wanted to keep it like it is, because only in this way you can imagine what is hearing the story directly from our friend LuLu's voice. One morning I wake up.

The Unemployee of the Month

Words & Pictures by Guido Casbah The first thing that came to my mind when my boss said: “I’m sorry Guido, we lost our big client, in two months there will be no more work for you” was “ok I’ll ride to Aquasanta Terme for the Holy Water Death Race then”. Two months later I was on a train to Pietrasanta that I decided it would have been the starting...

Balkans Tour

Words & Pictures by Ila “It’s all uphill!”: these words kept echoing in my head for the entire journey, as a mantra, followed by a series of nice exclamations that are not quite appropriate for a young lady.

Istanbul? Samo pravo! (Part 1)

Words & pictures by Clava Il treno interregionale entra lentamente nella stazione dell'estremo nord-est dove la strada ferrata s'interrompe. Sono a Trieste. Domani si andrà oltre, con la speranza di incontrare quello che non si è immaginato di incontrare. Ad attendermi tre Toscani, futuri compagni di viaggio: Righe da Prato, Gnabra da Arezzo e Gori da Nozzano Castello. Hanno già provveduto all'alloggio per la notte, un oratorio ci offrirà ospitalità...

Three dayz of maze – Day 3

Words & pictures by Cello So, here we are Ladies and Gentlemen to narrate the 3rd and last day of maze. I'm here laying on the couch with a laptop on my lap and a beer in my left hand, already missing the stony forays of the days ago through the lands of thin air and redden arses. I asked Pagha if he had by chance taken any picture of me (riding, or...
