mikemastroni Dug the DVX out yesterday and it brought back so many great memories. After high school I continued to work the same shitty job for about a year in my small Connecticut town of 2000 something humans. I knew I wanted out and began saving up money to move to California with my friend Becky. Once I had what I thought was enough, I quit. The only problem was, she flaked on our plans. Left with the funds, I immediately purchased this camera and began making my own brand of self-filmed videos. It was the first time in my life that I felt I could actually do something entirely on my own terms and have complete control of the outcome. I was hooked. My goals weren't really to get sponsored or noticed. I was doing this shit by myself, for myself. From my earlier works, to my Defgrip video, to all the opportunities that came after that, purchasing this camera was arguably the best decision I've ever made. #dvx100a #defgrip 1w

mikemastroni Here's the pole ride from the beginning of my @volumebikes DVD section shot by @jeffzphoto and featured in the new @ridebmx mag. I did this several times, once for fish video and a few more for long photo to get it just right. However, when you play with fire too much you usually get burned, or in this case impaled by a pole. Luckily we still walked with the clip & photo, so despite a few weeks of pain & discomfort, all was not lost. #bmx #watchthefinerthings 2w

mikemastroni I have an article in the new @ridebmx with @thefeatch about how we became friends, collaborate on ideas, and go about the creation process regardless of which wheeled machine happens to be under our feet. Thanks @jeffzphoto for shooting and @sailorjamie for the rad art direction. #bmx #skateboarding @volumebikes 2w

mikemastroni Here's the photo of the curved wall to over chain and into elevator clip in the beginning of my @volumebikes DVD section. Finding a seemingly untouched curved wallride in Southern California = gold. Finding one over a chain and into an elevator = priceless. Thanks @thedevinfeil for capturing this nicely and @thefeatch for making the elevator option a reality. #bmx #watchthefinerthings 3w

mikemastroni This is one of the last photos I took of @gucci_bear before his tragic & untimely passing at only 6 years old. Every morning when it was my turn to walk him we'd go down to the bluff and take in the day with some coffee and plenty of interesting stuff to pee on.
He was much more than just a dog, he was people. In fact, I definitely loved this guy much more than most people. Whenever I'd get frustrated with editing or anything at all, he'd always come running with a wag and a smile to cheer me up. He was my best canine friend and the worst part is that I wasn't even around to see him go, but today I did get to see him and say goodbye. At the very least I know that @alexplatt and I gave him one hell of a great life. He went on more trips then most kids would ever dream of. He lived with us in Austin, roamed the woods of Massachusetts, and spent many great years here in California. From days in the van with the boys, to doggy beach & hiking adventures, to chasing down every squirrel in the park daily, he was the happiest & most loved dog in the world.
Rest in peace pup. I love you & your spirit will live on with us forever.

mikemastroni One of my spots fell victim to a crazy sinkhole after a rare California rain a few months ago. #watchthefinerthings #thefinerthingsspots #bmx @volumebikes 2mon

mikemastroni I was so excited when I found this strange swinging arm setup about 8 months ago with a convenient little door to prop up close by. I'm still not really sure what the hell that arm could possibly be for given that I've been to easily over a thousand loading docks over all these years and never seen anything quite like it at any of them. Regardless of it's intended use, it made for one of my favorite clips in my @volumebikes DVD section. #watchthefinerthings #bmx #volumebikes #thefinerthingsspots 2mon
