Last_Dinosaurs_Blog00001

It’s been well over a year since the last time we had the Last Dinosaurs in town. Might have been even longer if fate hadn’t of stepped in, The boys were half way through their tour around south east asia when a typhoon smashed Manila and with a concert there cancelled a weeks down time opened up. They jumped on the blower to see if we were about in Bali. We’re always super stoked to have them here so when we gave the affirmative they came on in.

THE ELECTRIC LALA LAND ART EXHIBITION



Another great night down at the Deus Temple in Canggu came and went the other night with the opening of Stewart Smythe’s first solo exhibition “The Electric Lala Land Art Exhibition.”

The New Zealand native and long time Sydney resident, has been hard at work the past month producing a massive amount of work anointed with pithy wordplay and bold graphics.
Our two mad professors of motion mementos, David and Andre were on hand to make sure that good times aren’t forgotten, moreover shared with the brethren that couldn’t be there.

Our movie making men tend to whiz about a lot and while sometimes we’re not entirely sure what they do, they must have, because once again they have delivered up one of these subtle soliloquies of our life on the Island of the Gods, Bali and of times well spent. Enjoy!

We love to take photos and we love to show them to you, that’s a given. For the past couple of days we have been yakking on about the Deus Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off that we held in Bali a couple of weeks back. Yesterday we had the sweet lil video and the day before that we waxed lyrically about the whys and wherefores, with candids from throughout the day.They say that they enchant all the ladies and steal all the scenes, and to be a part of this you know that they’re all frightfully keen, yes ladies and gentlemen, we give you those magnificent men and their two wheeled machines.

A STABLE FULL OF IRON HORSES – DEUS BOUNDLESS ENTHUSIASM BIKE BUILD OFF – BALI



Couple of Sunday’s back we hosted Bike Builders from across Indonesia as part of the Deus Boundless Enthusiasm Bike Build Off. Word sped they were coming and soon we had a sizable crowd of enthusiasts and curious. But hey, we talked long and hard about the great day spent yesterday so let’s leave off on that. Today though, the D&A of Deus Bali came into work and served us up the goods.

We’re talking about David & Andre of course, you know those guys from our motion picture department. Gosh it’s easier to make things sound a whole lot bigger than they really are.

Those boys may skulk in the background here and there.Camera plastered to their head or with them mounted on some sliding contraption, which at the time just looks downright painful. But remember peoples, all their contortions and discomfort is for the greater good. Your and our entertainment.

Once again we say, dim the lights, grab some snacks and enjoy highlights of a Sunday of fun round the Deus Temple of Enthusiasm in Canggu.

Remember voting for the worldwide event is happening now via the interweb, to do it though, you have to go over here! http://deuscustoms.com/bikebuildoff/vote/

DOODLING WITH METAL, MOTORS AND WHETHER YOU MAKE THE TAIL END A FLOATER.

Bike_Build_Off0001



We normally finish the Bali side of Deus events with a big bash called Slidetober. It’s our last hoorah each year to blow off steam with family and friends. It comes at the end of what’s usually a long peak season. This year, HQ had different ideas. They had one last event they wanted us to hold and when weheard about it we got so excited that we couldn’t wait to do it either.

SPIN AND GRIN. THE SURFING SIDE OF THE DEUS SLIDETOBER FEST 2013


The diabolical digital duo, David and Andre, have once again locked themselves away in the man cave. For they’ve been hard at work doing the C’s; Cutting, cropping and compiling. There was a few T’s chucked in there as well, tweaking and tuning. Today they reared their heads blinked through with blood shot eyes and presented us with this wonderful filmic piece of memorabilia for the Sunday event of Deus Slidetober Fest 2013, which we are super stoked to share.

SPIN THE WHEEL-O-STEEL TO RIDE THE WAVES OF WONDER – DEUS SLIDETOBER FEST 2013




Part two of the Deus Slidetober Fest 2013 was set on the Sunday. And just before dawn, with only a glow in the east to guide us, we arrived at the beach, walked over the little line of dunes and gazed out at the waves. What we saw stopped us in our tracks. Out front the waves were clean and perfect. Ideal conditions in which to hold our annual surf comp. Less than 12 hours ago is was a whole different story.

After that brilliant yet bloody hot Saturday up at Kedungal, the dust settled andcrowd drifted off to their homes and holiday rental accommodation to rest before cruising the Deus Temple for a Saturday night annealed with bouts ofbeer and bravado talk of ripping up the dirt track. At the same time a group of us had the rather arduous task of packing our entire circus like collection of odds and sods into the back of several wagons and vans only to set them up on the beach south some 30 minutes away.
